We had a great trip to the observatory. We were picked up by Susie who was super friendly and informative. When we arrived Demaso already had a telescope set up so we could see sunstorms before it set. We got to see stars like Sirius while the sky was still light. As the night went on we used more and more advanced telescopes, and saw several stars and constellations not visible in the northern hemisphere. Demaso was extremely knowledgeable and passionate, we couldn’t have asked for a better host. He is so generous to open his home to guests to share his passion! He also has three dogs who were very sweet. We can’t recommend this enough, and would love to go again.

We selected this tour based on the positive reviews and the tour turned out to be better than we had anticipated. I was contacted prior to the tour to ask if there were any food restrictions and to confirm place and time of the pick up. Suzie was our guide. Not only was she extremely pleasant but she is very knowledgeable of wines and the vineyards in the area. We went to a large organic winery and then to a smaller boutique winery (both family owned) which provided a nice contrast. We were glad we were not driving as the pours at both wineries were more than generous. We were impressed with the area and would not hesitate to recommend the tour. If Suzie is available, you will not be disappointed. Pam C.

Yes, this experience is a bit pricey but worth every penny to view the Sun and Stars at this amazing private observatory. With our passionate, fun and laid-back host, D'Amaso (along with his wife and teenage son/helper), we observed the Sun, Venus, Binary Stars, Orion and its Nebula and many more. We learned so much and we had a fascinating conversation about the Cosmos and our place in it; D'Amaso was open to all questions. There were eight that evening but we were never rushed or had to wait for our turn at the many telescopes including the one in the dome. The evening included pick-up and drop-off and a nice wine and cheese selection. After traveling for five weeks, this was our last evening before returning home to the US. It was a spectacular way to end our journey--in the Stars! Don't miss.

We were a bit disappointed. We paid a lot of money and thought it would be amazing but it seemed this company might cater more to younger backpacker travellers. The guide was lovely and the activity was fine, and the service and communications we received were all perfectly fine, but for the price we paid we were expecting that little extra touch that makes you absolutely love your tour and make the price all worth it. And it truly was not for us, it honestly fell short in many ways. It was fine, no major complaints, but not worth the price. it just felt like were being taken around by a friend just showing us around but did not really feel very professional or worth the price we paid. Will not recommend to all our future travellers to Chile, will look for other touring company.

Dear Ghost Client, We think you have mistaken tour company / either it is a false review on behalf of someone else...perhaps a competitor? We kindly ask you to send proof of the purchase of this tour attached to your review. If you cannot find the receipt for the purchase of this tour, we kindly ask you to revise the name for the company you have booked with as it is certainly not ours. After verification of the company you have actually taken the tour with and please remove your review after once you have checked this. Otherwise we kindly wait for your receipt as proof you have actually done this tour with us ( which is not the case). Regards, Suzanne.

Chile Off Track arranged for Barbara (not then listed on their website) to conduct a private tour for two of us at a time (1300-1800) other than advertised at just one day’s notice. We were collected from our hotel and the tour was interesting (mainly walking). We felt our lack of knowledge of Santiago meant there was a disconnect between our expectations and outcome as we were asked if there was anything specific we wanted to see, which we were unable to answer. There was a chance to visit the inside of a building (Museum?) in the Plaza de Armas (admission presumably not included) but we felt this was an inappropriate use of our time with our guide and we didn’t want to miss out on whatever we were supposed to be seeing There were access restrictions in place in some areas of the city causing traffic and itinerary issues On the tour with the published times a snack and a drink are included but on this non standard tour we had the opportunity to buy our own snack only, although a coffee at a very interesting cafe was provided. One big plus in these fraught times for Santiago was that our guide was fluent in Spanish and local awareness, meaning we felt entirely safe in her company. After the tour we were driven back to our hotel Overall Much safer than doing it yourself and we are glad we did the tour If you are better prepared than we were you may not carry the feeling that somehow you missed out on something unknown
