This was by far the most authentic 'tour' I have ever taken. Although 'tour' might not be the best word to describe this experience.
This experience is truly once in a lifetime. You get a unique experience in the Andes and get a great cooked meal as well.
My friends and I booked the day-long Andes Jeep Tour with Francisco. He picked us up at our hotel in the morning and embarked on our adventure.
