“As the mayor of San Francisco and a private citizen, I have had an opportunity to travel to many wonderful countries…but our trip to Argentina and Chile this year has become one of the best ever. Your expert guidance and assistance with every phase was invaluable. Every day’s events and activities felt like they were specific to our particular interests and not part of a conventional “package.” And the food and wine were magnificent in city neighborhoods and out in the countryside. The personnel you selected as guides and drivers at each location were obviously well informed as well as most trustworthy. When the spouse of our companion couple was taken ill and required hospital treatment, you and our guides were with us every step of the way like family. We will be back soon!”
“We had a great trip, thank you! The helicopter ride and all the seafood (my mother) got to try at the market tour & restaurant there were her highlights for sure from the trip. I also really enjoyed most of the wineries – just beautiful grounds and great tours/wines/passionate people. Marcelo was great guide on our hike and tour in Santiago. And our driver Pablo was just fantastic. I can’t say enough great things about how amazing he was. Happy to provide a reference anytime you need one. I also will be sure to refer Upscape to my friends and colleagues – many of whom have the wanderlust like I do. Thanks again for everything!”
We visited Chile to experience its wines and cuisine. We considered other tour operators but kept coming back to Upscape based on trip advisor’s reviews – and we are glad we did. We visited 9 wineries in all in the Colchagua, Casablanca, and San Antonio valleys. All our guides were proficient in English, very knowledgeable, and service oriented. We highly recommend Upscape for those visiting Santiago and surrounding wine country.
“This (Ski Arpa) was the greatest ski experience I have ever had. It was worth every penny. Thanks a million.”
“I can speak for both of us in saying we have a great admiration for Chile/Argentina, the people we met and places we visited. Going with Upscape was the best thing we did. You and your staff made the trip relaxing and stress-free right from the start, and truly more special than I think either of us thought it would be. I’ve already told several people about the trip and how your services added so much to it. We honestly can’t think of anything we would change…well, except staying longer!”
“Brian Pearson’s Upscape provided a trip through Chile’s wine country that exceeded our most optimistic expectations in every respect. From Brian’s interest and commitment to helping us plan every detail of the trip, to his choices of venues and the quality and friendliness of his staff, everything was absolutely first rate. Our week tour with Upscape was one of the very best we have ever spent on a vacation.”
“Please convey once again to all your colleagues our great pleasure in being so well taken care of. Our guides in Puerto Montt, Coyhaique and Santiago were excellent and accommodating, and our pilots were skilled and gracious”.
Upscape really took care of us on the two day wine tour in Colchagua Valley. The wineries they selected for us were wonderful; all with friendly staff and excellent wines. The tour was a peaceful break from the city, including transportation, lunches, winery tours, and overnight accommodations. With two days we could enjoy a relaxing pace. We highly recommend this company and the two day wine tour.
Returned yesterday afternoon from our wonderful Chile/Argentina adventure! Everything was great. All the guides (Manuel, Luis and Erica) were outstanding. Each one had their own style but they were all very knowledgeable, caring and gracious. The accommodations, tours, wine tasting and food were all first class and very memorable. We will return to South America at some time in the future and Upscape will be who we call to set it up.
