Our stay has been realy wonderful. Pablo and Francesca are very reactive and it is very easy to communicate with them. They have organized our stay as we wished and we felt as we were alone in the world. I realy recommand Atacama contact.

San Pedro de Atacama was the final destination of our six week holiday in South America and was a true hidden treasure. What an amazing place. Francisca our English (& French & Spanish) speaking guide and Ivan our bus driver were outstanding. They planned two and a half fabulous & different days of adventures - salt lakes, rainbow valley, geyers, hot springs, ,luna landscape, beautiful sunsets and spectacular night sky.. Francisca was welcoming and friendly as well as very knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble. Ivan our skilled driver spoilt us with sunset nibbles & drinks, a lovely breakfast - the best hot chocolate, and on our final day a delicious lunch in rainbow valley. San Pedro de Atacama is a must see destination call Francisca at Atacama Contact. You won't be disappointed.

San Pedro de Atacama was an afterthought add on to our five week holiday across South America. Now it's all we talk about. What an amazing place. There were nine of us all friends with one and a half days of excursions organised. So with our other day and a half we decided to engage the help of our tour guide Francisca to plan some extra outings. She came back with a few ideas so we took her advise and did them all. We just couldn't get enough of the fantastic landscape and views. The history as rich as we had experienced anywhere else in SA. Francisca was not only fun, interesting experienced and able to take us off the beaten track, she was backed up by an incredibly competent driver Ivan. We had breakfast prepared from the back of the van at Tatio Geysers, lunch under the shade of a big rock in Rainbow Valley and even climbed a rough track to some Inca ruins few would be able to see. We were so well looked after I am telling anyone who will listen, go to San Pedro and call Francisca at Atacama Contact. You won't be disappointed.

I spent 6 days in the San Pedro de Atacama area in August. San Pedro is of limited interest and full of noisy tourists. The surroundings are extraordinary, but traditional tours only go to a few places, all at the same times, hence bringing huge crowds. Instead, I used the service of Pablo Garcia, the founder of Atacama Contact. Pablo is a climber and a mountain lover. He knows the area extremely well. He took me to spectacular places with no or few tourists. Amazingly, we even visited the Geysers del Tatio with ZERO tourists. We went there in the late afternoon, whereas tours come in the early morning (tours tell that the steam of the geysers is most impressive in the morning, but it is as impressive in the evening whenthe light is even more beautiful). Pablo is also an accomplished photographer. Over many years, he has identified gorgeous viewpoints that few other people know, even local people. I have greatly enjoyed my 6 days with Pablo.

I am a photographer and have travelled for 3 weeks alone with Pablo from Atacama Contact. Pablo perfectly knows Atacama and has a sensibility for photography which has helped me a lot in order to find the right places at the right moment. Pablo is serious, reliable and helpful. My experience was excellent.
