“My father had previously been part of a large group on a trek with Francisco “Pancho” Medina in Patagonia and was so impressed that he asked Pancho to arrange a trek just for the two of us in the Atacama region of northern Chile.
Through his company, Chile Montana, Pancho arranged all the logistics for the trek with scrupulous efficiency. He took care to ensure that everything was organised properly. He even ensured that we enjoyed really good food and wine during the trip.
Pancho designed an interesting and challenging journey which took us off the beaten track along routes that few tourists travel. It was an amazing experience which we were priviledged to enjoy and shall never forget.
During the trek Pancho was an excellent guide. He is clearly an expert in matters relating to climbing and trekking. However, his knowledge also covers topics as diverse as the flora, fauna, geology, history, and politics . He is therefore able to provide remarkable insights into the region.
My father and I have every confidence in Pancho’s abilities and we can recommend his services as a guide and those of his company without any hesitation.
