What people are saying about Antofagasta Region

Great tour combo with great guides. Each tour was unique and you could experience the versatility of the Atacama. The Vallecito Tour was awesome. A mega impressive and varied landscape. The tour of the lagoon was also an experience in itself. The water is cold, but with the bright sun from above it is a refreshing experience. And nice to see how all the salt settles on the skin like a small crust. The tour to the highlands was great. The fact that it is a little over 4,000 m can make you dizzy. But the view of the volcano, the many lakes and rock formations are unforgettable. We also saw a lot of flamingos and guanacas/llamas. The tour to the geyser field started very early, but it is an experience to see the steaming geysers at sunrise. Be careful, it's below 0 degrees up there. Don't forget a scarf, hat and gloves. All tours included breakfast/lunch :)

We had an absolutely unreal ride down the Cerro Toco. The bikes and gear were all in perfect condition and our guide Gary was informative and helpful at every step. The scenery, terrain, speed, gear, food, etc. were all as good as it gets. It was a true adventure that I highly recommend.

Guides and tours were excellent. Enjoyed the breakfasts and appreciated the expert driving on rough roads.

Really great guides. Good value for money. These sights are insanely beautiful.

Perfect organisation, very kind guides and stuff. Wonderfull nature.
