Thomas's Activity

ASantiago: Scenic hikes

Hi Louise, One good hike to do in Cajon del Maipo is the 4-hour hike at Monumento Natural El Morado. It will get you to a tiny lagoon at the foot of the glacier. I just did this with 4 clients of mine yesterday actually! And at the end, we stop at the natural pools of Baños... See More

APuerto Natales: 2 days in Puerto Natales, what else can I do close by?

Hello Natala, You can take a day cruise in the Fjord Última Esperanza​ and the a short trek towards Serrano Glaciar, and then ride a zodiac on Serrano river. You can also go visit a traditional Estancia Travel​, with horseriding,... See More

ASantiago: Three days in Santiago- what should I not miss?

ASantiago: Best way to go from Santiago to Mendoza & best attractions on the way?

Hello Romulo. As far as I know, the only options are:  - renting a car (which I don't recommend because you need a special permit to cross the border)  - hiring a private driver  - taking a tour with a travel agency. There is no hop-on hop-off bus, unfortunately. ... See More

ASantiago: Any alternatives getting to Valparaiso after midnight from Santiago?

There are no buses to Valparaiso​ and Viña del Mar​ after 11pm. Taxi is the only option unfortunately. So I suggest you stay at the Holiday Inn Express Santiago, Chile​ right in front of the airport and go to Valparaiso... See More

AParis: Should I stay near Eiffel Tower or city center (Notre Dame area)?

Hi Amy, Let me answer point by point: 1. Both areas are safe 2. Both areas are close to metro stations, but you may have more near Saint-Germain-des-Prés​. 3. Definitely Saint-Germain des Prés for the cafés. St-Germain is at the heart of the Quartier... See More

AParis: Is the Paris Museum Pass worth it?

Hi Molly, It depends what you want to see and do... Two things to consider: 1) the price 2) the necessary time to get to a museum and visit it properly. If you take Versailles for instance, count 1h to 1.5h to get there. Then queue for half an hour or more (no bypassing... See More

ABest places to visit with a significant other?

Hi Kristina,  Asking for places to go with your partner while you are single is both strange and optimistic... I'd say keep Italy and France for that time.  As things to do on your own, I have always felt long treks and backpacking are great to do alone, as you... See More

AEurope: What to bring from USA (California) as gifts to my AirBnB hosts?

Hi Caitlin, that's a tough one, as you can find pretty much everything in Paris... If you think about food, it could be some good Californian wine, or something typically Asian-American that would be hard to find here.  Not food? Then the best thing is to bring something... See More

AParis: 1st Anniversary in Paris

Hi Luke, One thing I love to do in Summertime in Paris is walking around the parks of Paris. My favourites are Parc des Buttes Chaumont​ and Luxembourg Garden​, which is next to the Senate. You can also walk around the old district... See More
