What people are saying about Guiando



Najuel was awesome. Perfect family trip for our 10,12,14 year old kids. December is warm but there are many shady parts and opportunity to feel fresh at the river crossings. Lunch in a traditional home was certainly a highlight. Such a good day. I will remember forever. Highly recommend. There is an option to do more extreme riding if you are super fit and have moderate mt bike skills. We chose not to do this in case our 10 year old found it too difficult. My best day in Argentina so far after 2.5 weeks of travel.
