My husband and I spent three days and two nights in San Pedro de Atacama. Starting with the planning of the trip to its conclusion, our experience with Pablo was exemplary. Before we booked with him, he patiently explained (he speaks Spanish, English, and French) what might be worth seeing in the time we had and customized the itinerary to fit our preferences. He didn’t do any sales pitch, or try to sell us additional packages. His outfit is no frills or luxury, but a comfortable, customized, and unique experience. A few distinguishing things about Pablo: Pablo knows and loves the Atacama Desert which shows in his great knowledge and understanding of the area, from naming each type of rock, shrub, bird, and animal as well as all the interesting sites. Pablo also took us to some lesser-known areas that were not visited by too many tourists. He respects nature and humans’ impact on nature which is important to us as well. He also knows a great deal about astronomy including naming and showing in the sky the location of more stars, planets, nebulas, and constellations than we ever knew about. He also would give us great geology lessons along the way by explaining various geological aspects that helped shaped the area. He was thoughtful enough and brought us a bottle of wine and cheese to have at the end of our first day in the middle of the desert while we enjoyed a magical sunset with no one around. Pablo also picked us up and dropped us off at the Calama airport, and even waited for us at the airport to make sure we were checked in before he left. If you want to intimately experience the real Atacama Desert without a throng of people in big vans with a friendly and highly knowledgeable person, we highly recommend Pablo. Muchas gracias, Pablo! We hope to come back again!

We went out two days with Pablo. We tailored the excursions around what we wanted to see and do. His knowledge and passion for the Alticama area is incredible. It was a great experience that we will cherish always.

Booked a custom tour over the phone and had a wonderful time (visited flamingoes in the salt flats as well as the moon valley for sunset). Our guides English was amazing and was also fluent in French. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the science of what made Atacama so beautiful. Highly recommend booking a tour.

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.
