Chile Trip- January 2010

Planning a trip with about 5-7 of us to Chile in Jan. 2010. Looking to paddle mostly class III and IV and Pucon is sounding very appealing. Does anyone have any suggestions on a guide company to go with? We are only going for 2 weeks and were thinking of getting a guide for at least a portion of it. Seems like Kayak Pucon and Kayak Chile with Ben May are both good options..?? Any feedback or advice would be much appreciated on both guide options and recommended rivers to hit! Thanks a ton!

I would recommend Kayak Pucon, they are a small business without the incredible funds that Ben has backing his business. Rodrigo is an awesome guy and knows the rivers there like the back of his hand, he also is an amazing paddler, and has a lot to offer in terms of advice. Ben's guides are good, but not as experienced. Rodrigo knows all the best rivers there.
