About Ruta Chile - Whole Saler Tour Operator
Ruta Chile began its operations in 2000 as a travel agency, little by little our company grew, so that in recent years Ruta Chile had an exponential growth. As we gained ever more clients with different requirements we expanded our catalog but after a few months, we realized that operators with whom we have worked could not incorporate the seal of quality that would have to be complied with to satisfy our customers and their demands. Therefore, Ruta Chile begins to operate their own tours and programs, acquiring Vehicles, training guides, creating programs and opening Routes. Ruta Chile is running Corporations with more than 200 Hotels all over Chile and has more than 30 Guides and 20 cars as well as buses in the most important cities and destinations.

We took this tour last year. The guide doesn’t speak English at all, and keep repeating the same information over and over. They also don’t let you move and ask you to be next to them all the time. Amazing place but awful guide

This tour included airport pickup and dropoff. Mine was a shared shuttle from Calama airport to San Pedro De Atacama and back. Ruta Chile had coordinated my 4 day trip with a local guide in San Pedro De Atacama called "Desert Adventure". There was a lady standing with my name card at the airport. She helped me with where to go and enter name for transport registration. I did not know how to speak Spanish and most of the people at airport did not know how to speak English so coordinating where to wait for shuttle was difficult. I had to ask 4-5 times about it and finally figured it out through hand actions. On the way we had some spectacular views of the region. It was a 1.5 hours journey. The driver dropped me at the hotel. Later in the afternoon they picked me up again to visit Valle de la Luna and Mars. Desert Adventure picked my up and dropped me off at some other tour guides office for this tour. Many tour guides there collaborate in this manner when they have few people registered for a tour. Note make sure you atleast 1L drinking water with you anytime you go for a tour. The remaining 2 days of my tour to Atacama were spectacular with Desert Adventure themselves.

I recommend the tour, but our tour guide, during this Corona virus crisis, had a non-stop cough and did little to suppress the spread of his germs. He even talked in an aggressively energetic manner to the point where you could see spittle coming out of his mouth. Nice guy, so I’m not going to give his name. Valparaiso is a gorgeous town, full of murals and hilltop views of the ocean. Lunch was at a beautiful restaurant on the water. Though lunch was not included, the overall tour cost was low.

We did this trip as a shore excursion. We left from the pier and had a lovely scenic drive around the lake district. We went to the Orsorno Volcano Ski area, where you can get great views. We stopped here long enough for people to climb up higher for the views or go on the ski lift or just get a coffee at the cafe and enjoy the scenery. A little longer here would have been better, as we did not have time to do both the hike up and the ski lift, we had to choose one or the other, and the hike up the trail was rushed due to time limitations. But the overall tour was very good and we're glad we did it.
