What people are saying about Antofagasta Region

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!

Beautiful place and very good guide. Pity it was somewhat cloudy.

Great guide, good explanations, impressive landscape
