Extreme was the most economical agency, if you're going to book more than two tours. Do not book from your hostel, you will pay more. The tours were awesome, but make sure you ask questions regarding attire before leaving on one (swim suits, sweaters, etc.). Manuel was our guide for Valle de la Luna as well as the Geysers. He's...

If you're looking for inexpensive tours with young energetic guides who speak good English and want to be on a bus with other younger travelers and backpackers, then this is one of the best companies. The downside is that the groups are pretty large (can also be a good thing if you're looking to meet people). Keep in mind that... More

We booked 5 tours with this agency, with the owner herself. When i realized 2 of the tours, booked for the same day clashed in schedule, she said it was our own fault. I asked for a refund, she said no. I booked the tour to the Lagunas Altiplanicas (high plateau lagoons) which are located at 4400 mts above sea... More

Overall the tour was good and the tour guide was knowledgeable BUT our tour guide wasn't very professional and we ended up spending way too much time stopped for breakfast (three people including the guide had run off to look at something else leaving the rest of us waiting by the bus to go) so we ended up only having...

When arrived in san Pedro we went straight to Tourist Information at the corner of the main plaza. Terrible. I don't know what he was doing on his computer but he didn't want to talk to us. Eventually he told us "only one tour operator in San Pedro that I recommend - Terra Extreme - quality with a Q" as... More

We had a Moon Valley tour and our tour guide was terrible. He gave all attention to Spanish speakers and when it was time to translate in English, he acted arrogant, provide little info and made jokes in spanish about us.

The amount of tour agencies in San Pedro is overwhelming. Don't waste your time like I did. Just go straight here. The only agency person I found in San Pedro who was helpful was Nadia from Terra Extreme. She is amazing. Efficient and funny and actually does her job! Go and see her and book your tours with her.

We had an absolute fabulous time with our excursions with Terra Extreme - we booked private tours which meant that a fabulous guy called Antonio (husband of the owner) picked us up on time every day at our hotel. The car was Land Cruiser style, very comfortable with AC. Antonio was entertaining, gave us a lot of insights on the... More

We had 2 tours with Terra Extreme, the first one to the Tatios geysers was almost perfect despite the low temperatures, the second one was disappointing the day after. We booked the ´Lagos altiplanicos´ tour but we never saw the lakes ....The road was closed due to snow and had to go back to San Pedro. No refund was even... More

I did like the desert, but never got to float in the little salt lakes like I wanted... I watched other tour operators shower their customers with fresh water if they got salt in their eyes or mouth, and also got showers after so they didn't have to get dressed with a layer of crusting salt on their bodies.
