What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I like to specialize on what you are needing. If I don't have the knowledge, I'll investigate how's the best way to give you what you are looking for. I like to tailor made experiences: hiking in Patagonia, biking & kayaking on the Lakes District, wine tastings in Mendoza and Santiago de Chile, glamping, homestays or top luxury..."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I have always been attracted to languages and cultures and with the pass of the time I felt in love with our landscapes and people. Tourism was, then, a perfect combination to join my two passions. Since many years now I have the pleasure to show my region to the rest of the world."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Some years ago we had the opportunity to welcome a high profile minister from the Middle East, we really learnt a lot about their culture in order to adapt our manners and procedures to their conservative requirements. It was a very interesting process that turned out to be both educative and also a great success, the entourage party had a really good time in our country."

Recent trip reviews for Leandro

The whole process was easy, and seamless. · Chile - Dec 10 - Dec 22, 2021

Traveler: Howard R. - Local specialist: Leandro Zamprogno

The whole process was easy, and seamless. Everything was done through online communication and the response time was often less than one day. Overall our trip was seamless and the only areas that brought up any concern had nothing to do with the travel planner but more with the Covid situation.
