Thermal Marvels at sunrise: Tatio Geysers

By Full Tour
About
The land of water and fire. The heat generated by the active volcanoes of the region warms the underground waters. In contrast with the freezing temperatures of the surface, generous amounts of water vapor are produced. The result is a true spectacle of nature. A geothermical field with hundreds of geysers whose eruption throws bolling water and vapor to about 10 meters high. We arrive to the region before sun rise, reason why the temperatures could reach -20ºC, besides the fact that we will be at over 4.000 meters above sea level. That is why we recommend a night of full rest the day before and very warm clothes.

          Worth doing but be wary of the tourist traps
          This tour ticks att the Valparaiso boxes and from that point of view its excellent. It totally lets itself down with its terrible selection for lunch, the restaurant is a tour company regular where kickbacks are handed out because without the toursit trade this restuarant wouldnt survive, the service is appalling, the food is even worse and then the bill is the final slap across the face. Do the tour but eat at some of the other restaurants in the area

          Good tour, but expensive
          This was a very long tour (we spent probably 7hrs in the small bus) with only 2 bathroom stops. Overall, it was a very good experience. Our driver (Adele) and tour guide (Nicole) were excellent. We visited a flamingo reserve and different lagoons. Nicole is very experienced and used pictures/ books as needed to tell us about the fauna and history of the different areas. We saw a few additional animals along the way (fox, llama). The tour is bilingual (even though the booking makes it appear it would only be one language). The tour had to be changed because 2 parks were closed for maintenance at that time. The tour company texted us the day before and asked if we were OK with the change. The parks had been closed for a while (we heard about it in the local tourist office) and the tour operator should have adjusted the description on the website. Instead of visiting one of the parks we were dropped off at a restaurant in San Pedro de Atacama at 3 PM for lunch (which was included in the tour).

          Beautiful Lake, Okay Experience
          We didn't have a great start to the day, as Full Tour scheduled us for a 6:40 a.m. pickup. In order to make that work with our hotel breakfast, we had to wake up at 5:30. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, we didn't get picked up until 9:10 a.m. I wasn't too upset because I understand that these things happen, however that meant less time on the tour because they were rushing to get us back at a normal time. That said, our tour guide, Alejandro, was wonderful and he did a great job switching between Portuguese and English for our sake. (We were the only English-speakers on the tour.) I also appreciated that Full Tour was easy to communicate with via WhatsApp. If I could have changed anything, I would have had more time to walk around at Laguna del Inca and would have eliminated having to eat in the expensive restaurant at the lake.

          Good
          We had a good time on the Cajon del Maipo trip with Full Tour. Our guide, Alejandro, was absolutely wonderful and did very well considering he had to switch from Portuguese to English the whole day! We were the only English-speakers on the tour, which we expected; and we also expected that we would not be included in the conversations because of that, but the downside of that was that there was a lot of lingering at each stop to allow for socializing. It was way too much lingering for us since we couldn't join the conversations! The other downside was that the tour had advertised the tour as including Embalse El Yeso, which was the site we were most interested in seeing; unfortunately, that was not the case. I contacted Full Tour afterwards, and they said Embalse El Yeso was closed to tours for the season because of safety concerns, but their website clearly stated that it was only closed from May to September. So we were very disappointed and confused that this had not been clarified earlier. However, I appreciated how easy it was to reach Full Tour via WhatsApp. They responded to all of my questions in a very timely manner and with friendliness.

          The funnest tour I’ve ever been on!
          My aunt and I went on a tour to Viña Del Mar & Valparaíso with Daniel and the driver Alejandro. They are friendly, funny and extremely patient. Not only do they do their jobs well done, but they are always giving pertinent tips on the cheapest market, where to eat and the better deals. Daniel not only takes us roaming through the two cities but also makes remarks about the smallest details, as well as historic and geographical context. He’s the full package, he even takes great pictures of all the tourists in group (in our case nicknamed the “mafia simpática” 🤣🤪🥳)! Congratulations on a job done with excellence, we can tell how much you do it with passion. I recommend the tour with these guys, it’s a great time guaranteed and p.s. they make extra stops to take advantage of the great landscape so we can take great pictures). I was simply enchanted!

          Excellent trip
          The Cajon del Maipo and Embalse el Yeso are great destinations in the heart of the Anden Chain. On the way through the Cajon you have a great view of the nature and can taste also the housemade empanadas. Getting to the Embalse el Yeso there you have a great feeling in the middle of nowhere and your are next to Argentina. Incredible Must-Do.

          Beautiful cities
          What an amazing tour. Daniel and Francisco were an awesome team. All of our “mafia” ( Daniel’s way of keeping track of us) were from Brazil. Daniel worked diligently to make sure we were included in conversations and still gave us an informative tour. We were able to experience Valparaíso on foot-thankfully down hill,and the boat ride was the icing on the cake. Daniel is a passionate guide and gave us insight into what it means to be Chilean. He made sure we felt safe and gave us a wonderful experience.

          Amazing Guides, beautiful surroundings!
          I came to Santiago alone so was a bit nervous about doing a tour alone but as soon as I met Ismael I knew I would be fine, he made me feel instantly at ease and very comfortable. Ismael has great local knowledge and a fun character that had us all laughing all day. The tour was the perfect combination of activities and we even had time to fit in an incredible boat trip to see sea lions. Christian, the driver, was extremely helpful and also gave lots of interesting facts about Chile and the two cities we visited. I would highly recommend this tour and hope you get these guys as they were great! Thanks again for everything :)

          Amazing day at the beach with Daniel and Luis. Big points to the fact that is Fiestas Patrias and they were taking us to visit Vina del Mar and Valparaiso from 8am to 5pm! While walking down the hills of Valpa, you even get to meet their biggest stars: Chocolate and Lady, the cutest dogs ever! They were ponctual and polite. Daniel knows a lot about the country and it culture, and gives you tips on other things too. Super recommended!

          Amazing day trip with Daniel!
          Great day trip to see Viña del Mar and Valparaíso! Daniel our guide was super knowledgable and friendly. Group size is small and the guide’s speak excellent English. The day is well organised with a one hour walk through Valparaiso included at the end of the tour and lots of opportunities to take photos throughout the day. Well worth it and definitely recommend!

        O que eu poderia dizer a não ser agradecer demais a experiência que tivemos com a Full Tour, principalmente ao atendimento especial que tivemos desde o Início com a Amanda DA HORA sempre muito clara e solicita a qualquer momento e também a Bruna da Base de San Pedro do Atacama, meu Deus que figura incrível, mesmo com os imprevistos com as condições climáticas ela sempre conseguiu dar um jeito de nos atender e nos proporcionar uma viagem inesquecível.

        The tour and the geysers are beautiful and interesting. There is also a good explanation and they are nice (with that income on 15 people who wouldn't be?). However, it is essentially a shuttle service spiced up with something else for an exorbitant cost. If you have a car you absolutely have to do it yourself even if the road can be a bit challenging. it is probably true that it is better to go just before sunrise but the real difference would need to be understood. It could be an excuse to discourage self-employed people from traveling on dirt roads in the dark. I was on a motorbike and in that cold and darkness I had no choice. I'm glad I saw them though, when you've made it this far there's no point in not going.

        Estimado Pablo, Lamentamos que haya tenido una mala experiencia, sin embargo no es justo que califique 3 estrellas si el problema fue el camino, ya que como agencia de turismo no somos los encargados de pavimentar las vías o hacerles mantención. Además, según nuestros registros, no tenemos ningún Pablo que haya realizado tours con nosotros, podría por favor indicarnos la fecha en la que fue? esta opinión ya fue reportada y estamos esperando que TripAdvisor la elimine pues no es verídica ni justa, ya que nunca fue nuestro cliente y su otro comentario sobre otro tour en Atacama fue igual.

        Muy lindo lugar, una experiencia única, pero no sé si la volvería a repetir.
        El trayecto era difícil y hacía mucho frio.
        Llegaron a buscarnos en el horario indicado 5 AM
        La guía muy simpática, pero no explicaba tanto y el desayuno (rico) no sirvió de mucho para abrigar el cuerpo porque era a la interperie y corría mucho viento quizá sería bueno que el desayuno sea en Machuca o que lleven un piso para poder descongelarse.
