Oneseed Reviews

Booking with OneSeed not only made the travel arrangements simple and straightforward, but I knew the routes and accommodations would be tried and tested. Our guide took the guess work out of the daily activities and provided knowledgeable information on our safety and surroundings and gave me full confidence to know we would be safe and not aimless on the trails.

The trip was well thought out. The amount of time spent on the hike was just right. It was challenging and difficult at times but oh so worth it!

I LOVED the Patagonia trip! Nathan in Santiago and Sabine in Patagonia were outstanding in terms of responsiveness and warmth. The trekking met my expectations and I found the refugios to be sufficient for the sites. I really appreciate the fact that OneSeed supports the local economy and gets me out of the “chain” feel of other trips and tours. Excellent!!
