Had a wonderful tour of the geysers with Sebastian. He is one of the best tour guides we’ve had! He is so knowledgeable and excited to share his knowledge with others. He made the experience memorable and enjoyable. The sites are beautiful. The colors around the geysers are amazing. Thank you.

My husband and I did 4 different tours with Trekana while in the Atacama and enjoyed each one. Certainly the scenery is fabulous, but the guides were made the tours great. The were all so knowledgeable and their love of the country and region was obvious. It made the experiences so much better. Sebastian and Antel were wonderful.

After our 5 nights in San Pedro de Atacama we were so glad our travel company had chosen Trekana. The guides were all extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to make each tour the best it could be. Trekana managed to time their tours so as to avoid the crowds that could otherwise spoil experiences at the some of the most popular sites - really important to experience the unique atmosphere of these places. The groups were small - typically just 4 visitors per tour - another real plus! They also designed our schedule so as to minimise the risk of altitude sickness by keeping the highest tour (to over 4500 metres) till the end - this is a problem not to be underestimated so a knowledgeable and responsible operator is really important. Sebastian and Manuel really knew their stuff and also clearly loved the places and wildlife they showed us and the breakfasts and snacks they were able to lay out for us in the stunning locations we visited were the icing on the cake! If you want to see the Atacama we thoroughly recommend Trekana as your guide.

We were picked up promptly by Sebastian from our hotel. The vehicle was clean and comfortable and water was waiting for us. Sebastian has the most excellent English and coped well with my hearing problem. He was thoughtful, informative and flexible as well as funny and charming. We felt safe as he was an excellent driver. Sebastian recognised that seeing llamas by the side of the road was amazing for us and parked close, but not too close so I could take lots of photos. We enjoyed his knowledge of the wildlife and vegetation. He explained that we couldn’t visit the village of Rio Grande because of a dangerous road after recent heavy rain but made up for this by showing us some ancient carvings and a wonderful viewpoint instead. The Rainbow Valley visit was memorable. The colours are every bit as wonderful as the adverts show and Sebastian explained about how they were formed. We went later in the afternoon and it was very quiet. We only met two people during our walk. What impressed me was that Sebastian understood me when I said I liked to feel dwarfed by nature and drove us a little further into the valley to some amazing rock passages. We finished at Death Valley to watch the sunset. A great spot as the views were amazing. Sebastian was an excellent host and we enjoyed the wine and goodies he’d brought with him. A wonderful day and a wonderful guide. Many thanks Sebastian. Jill and Brian Shield
