We did 4 tours with terra extreme: Valle the la luna, Altiplano, Cejar, El Tatio and we really enjoyed each of the tours! - Good timing at the spots - Guides spoke english and spanish and had a good sense of humour (gracias a roberto;) ) For the last tour, Tara desert, we have been switched to another company.

We did a total of 3 tours with Terra Extreme--Altiplanic Lagoons, Valle de La Luna and Geysers del Tatio (we booked a 4th to Laguna Cejar but were "handed off" to another company as happens often). Group size was never too large--around 10-12 people per van. Guides spoke good English and were very passionate and interested in telling the story... More

The lady in the office was not that helpful and not helped by the fact that she only spoke Spanish. We were told that our trip to the geysers would get there in time for sunrise but we were about 1.5 hrs late and therefore missed what we really wanted to see and the geysers were already becoming less impressive...

We had the pleasure of having Roberto as our guide for two trips: first, to Valle de la Luna and two days later to the Geysers de Tatio. He's knowledgeable, charming and was really great about responding to each individual's language needs. Highly recommend his Geysers de Tatio tour because of his specific knowledge of the terrain and its natural... More

We used Terra Extrema to visit Valle de Luna and las Termas de Puritama (Hot Springs). Both visits were fantastic. On the trip to Valle de Luna we started right on time and the bus was comfortable. The best thing was our guide, Roberto. His English was great and he was funny and very personable. We had our two youngest... More

We did 2 tours with this company - altiplano lakes and the geysers and had the same guide for both, Nicholas. His English was excellent and he kept us well informed and entertained! The price was very competitive and the breakfast included on both trips which was quite yummy. Would recommend

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...
