This is a "Must Do' when you visit Pucon! Fantastic white water and amazing class 4-5 Rapids and waterfalls. Our guide Josh expertly guided our boat and helped create an incredible experience on this beautiful river. Politur's boats, gear, facilities and service was first class!

My wife and I hiked with a guide and few other people up Villarrica Volcano. The experience was fantastic. Being from Colorado, my wife and I are fast hikers. The company provided several tour guides. A small group of us were able to spit from the larger group with a fast hiking tour guide. We were able to ascend the... More

I used Politur as my guide to climb Villarrica Volcano. The guides - there were 4 for a group of 12 climbers - are very friendly and do a great job of motivating people. It took about 5 hours to reach the top (the chairlift was broken, which adds an extra hour to the trek) and then an hour going... More

My sister and I did the volcan Villarrica tour and loved it! The price was reasonable, everything was perfectly arranged, the equipment was all in good condition, and best of all was our tour guides! Ricardo and two other guides led our group of 8 and it was windy but beautiful for pictures! The hike itself took about 3.5 hrs... More

We had an amazing private tour to lagos Adinos, these guys were really friendly and told us a lot about of great things about the place. we would definetely recommend this tour and of course these guides from Politur. After the tour they invited us to have a beer at the Politur office. We had a lovely time!

Amazing experience with generally really helpful guides. First time ever attempting something like this ascent through volcanic landscape and snow to the crater of a roughly 2800 metre high volcano but the guides explained things in multiple languages. Saw lava and breath taking landscapes. Was probably not given as much info about what we should bring as we were by... More

I did the Volcan Villarica with Politur. Meeting time was at 6.30 am in their office, and exactly at 6.30 am, one of the guides showed up. We packed our rations and equipments into a bagpack they provided. And although the vehicle couldn't start due to a flat battery, the guides did an excellent job in jump starting the vehicle,...

We hiked up Villarrica with Politur and they were so reassuring and accommodating. If we had wanted to return to the base they gladly would have done so for us. They made us feel like family after the tour when we were served beer and juice at their office. All equipment is included, even hiking boots, with the price, and... More

The whole experience was an adventure and the staff was amazing. They have an amazing photographer from Europe for a few months and the photos were such good quality. They give you all the equipment and you don't even feel how cold the water is because of the special neoprene suits. The river has beautiful surroundings, like a fairy tale,... More
