Pickup from the hostel was in time but we arrived at the parking almost an hour before sunrise in minus temperatures. We were the first group. There an outside basic breakfast was served. Followed by long explanations by the guide in two languages to the point it had became light and other groups were already exploring the geyser field. Also... More

I booked all my tours online before I came to Chile which was very convenient as I didn't need to do anything once I arrived in San Pedro. All tours were very well organized and whenever something changed I was informed upfront via email. All guides were fluent in English and explained a lot throughout the tours. Definitely recommendable!

We boarded this bus when it was very dark. The seats were comfortable and we set off for Tatio Geyser. It seemed to me that the bus swayed a lot, and bounced over the corrugations. Carlos the driver drove slowly. We reached Tatio Geyser and saw the thermal springs, a wonderful and awe-inspiring sight. On the way back Carlos drove... More

We booked three tours through this tour company arranged by our hotel. Tour companies in this area face intense and lots of competition and as a result they all have to deal with large crowds at the most popular sites. Nevertheless, our guide and drivers managed to well deliver and exceed expectations. Our tours included Valley of the Moon, Geysers... More

We went with Turismo Layana to the Geysirs del Tatio. It's a touristy place but definetly worth a visit! Entrance fee was 10.000$ (4.000$ for students). We brought swimming clothes and took a bath which was great! Also stopped at a small village and some other nice viewpoints! We got a breakfast with tea/coffee, bread, cheese, ham & marmalade).Layana does... More
