The organization of the tour was excellent. Even before I left Austria, the responsible travel agency contacted me and asked if I needed any support. Locally in Chile and in the desert, they made an excellent effort to look after me. There is no better care! In the 4 days we really visited everything there is to see in the Atacama. More Atacama is not possible! Only the hotel room was a bit small, but that seems to be the standard in the desert. Highly Recommended!
