The scenery was amazing! Every place we visited was breathtaking. Max was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable. Max was also a great photographer and took lots of photos for us as well as others on the tour. I want to echo the advice from a previous reviewer, bring snacks because lunch is not served until around 2:00 pm. Also, there is a large chunk of time when there are no bathrooms. This would hold true regardless of which tour company you used. I would highly recommend this trip.
Great tour! Knowledgeable guide, well organized--my only negative comment is that we needed more time at the last stop--the flamingos! I could have done with less lagoon in order to make that happen-but overall, this is a wonderful tour where you will see beautiful, humbling sites. The bus was comfortable, the tour guide's English was exceptional, and lunch was very good.
The day is long on the bus, but the sights were amazing! Every time we thought we had seen the best thing, there was another destination that was even better. There is a long time between rest room stops and lunch was pretty late in the day....so bring snacks. There is also a big temperature range so bring warm and cool clothing....they allow you to keep backpacks, etc. on the bus. The price was a real bargain and the time was well worth it, even with our limited amount of time in the Atacama desert.
The landscape was breathtaking and almost Martian. The lagoon pristine; the emerald water unforgettable. The flamenco reserve was very good, but it'd be good to have more time there. Ended at Tocanao which was a bit boring as the guide did not explain much but we tried ice cream with local flavours!
Tour operator poorly organized: we did not have a good experience with Turistour and we would not recommend them for a trip. Also we could not see everything we were supposed to due to adverse weather (it was very windy that day).
Was an nice day! Long day wich ended with thunder and rain. But for this time we have had visited all places and were safely in bus on the way back to San Pedro de Atacama. The most impression were Flamencos National Reserve, Aqua Calientes volcano and Salt lake beside this, Socaire village - very tasty late lunch!!!
By the way I really enjoied the scenery on the way back. Mostly there was Atacama itself on leftside and Andes under heavy thunder on the right side!
