ANDES have an excellent record of running trips that are well-organised, enjoyable and interesting. The latest Customer Survey on this page is for customers who climbed and skiied in the Andes with us from late 2010 to 2014.

ANDES RUN TRIPS THAT ARE ENJOYABLE, INTERESTING AND GOOD VALUE
Andes send all customers on all trips a questionnaire on their return home. The majority of customers, approximately 80%, return these to us. Results from all customers returning questionnaires during the period February 2010 to October 2014 are shown below. This time period included expeditions to high altitude and remote areas, Aconcagua trips, First Ascents trips, ski holidays and ski mountaineering trips to Chile and both private and scheduled itineraries.
92% of customers found their trip either 'Enjoyable' or 'Very Enjoyable'. Asked to rate this on a scale of 1 to 5 (3 being neutral) the average score was 4.5 out of 5. We received only one "un-enjoyable" score of 2 and none of 1

Customers on an ANDES expedition relaxing after dinner at our first camp in the Chilean Puna de Atacama, March 2016. A photo showing some of the ways our trips are so enjoyable - small groups, a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of sunshine. Of course we do not claim to be in direct control of the sunshine.!
Before booking it's worth reading the comments about our style of expedition, as we lead smaller, more interesting and more adventurous courses and expeditions than many big companies.
