Puerto Montt Osorno Volcano Excursion Reviews

This is definitely a must-see while you're in Puerto Montt. With jaw-dropping views of Osorno Volcano and the waterfalls, you won't want to leave!
The falls and the walk to them were gorgeous; however, I can't recommend the tour company.

The falls and the walk to them were gorgeous; however, I can't recommend the tour company. There was no communication before the cruise/tour -- I had to call Chile and talk to them to confirm new times. The tour went to Osborno Volcano, Petrohue Falls, Frutillar, and Puerto Varas. Would have been cheaper and better to hire a taxi to go to the Falls and see the volcano. The two towns were just okay. I could have skipped. There were shopping areas, but we didn't really have enough time to shop. And lunch was an empanada eaten standing by the van with cups of wine and/or water. Nature was beautiful. Tour was forgettable. Read Less

It’s was a good excursion. The area is beautiful. Thee was raining up on the volcano as it was in clouds. No matter if you bring warm jackets or raincoats if you do see that the clouds are hovering over it. This was the beginning of summer and with it comes rain. Be prepared with the right clothing.

A long drive on a tour bus, saw a dormant snow capped volcano. Petrohue falls was pretty awe-inspiring. the price of their souveniers was lower than in town, I bought an alpaca sweater for 25.00, saw one just like it for $49.00 elsewhere. they took credit cards or USD. Then had free time at Puerto Varas, a quaint and beautiful tourist town. Read Less

Excellent guide and good use of time. Good lunch and great visits to the rapids, volcano (where most of our group took ski lift for better views), and stop in town of Puerto Varas.

This tour is seven hours in a bus to spend 45 minutes viewing the water falls and hopefully getting a glimpse of the volcano depending on if there are clear skies or not. Once again you are not told until you are on the bus that Puerto Montt has over 275 days of rain per year making it very unlikely that you will get that glimpse of the volcano. Nor did the description of our tour indicate that it was imperative to have waterproof clothing- which it is. Read Less

Loved it.
Loved it. I describe this with the photo of the volcano that I posted. Again a chance to get out into nature along with some touring of the local towns around a very scenic lake.

As we had previously visited Petrohue Falls and Puerto Varas, we booked an independent tour with Juan, who showed us the towns along LLanquihue Lake and and drove us up to the Osorno Volcano and lave field. He was very pleasant, his English very good, and we enjoyed our time with him. Only downside was the ship was not in port long enough for us to take the ski lift up to the top of the volcano. We would hardily recommend using Juan. Rating is 4+ Read Less
