The tour starts with your pickup around 5:00AM. You drive in the dark (we had some amazing star and planet gazing along the way) and arrive at the geysers before dawn ( so you can see the sunrise, which wasn’t that impressive). It was cold, 20 degrees F and with snow and ice on the ground. We had 40+ minutes to walk around the initial section ( dress WARM). Then we had outdoor breakfast by the van which our guide Mario cooked. By now the sun was up, the views were good. Breakfast was ok, the bread was hard and dry, hot water for cocoa, tea, coffee; other foods were ok, good. Then we drove to the hot springs where you could soak, swim for 20+ minutes. The water was cool, warm, but not hot, depending on where you were in the pool. There was another geyser area here to walk around and view. If this was your first geyser area to see, it was probably pretty good, if you have been to Yellowstone or New Zealand, it was ok. The drive back had some great views, animal sightings including flamingos and was actually the most impressive part of the day, for me. Our guide, Mario spoke decent English and made sure that we got good explanations, too. 3 IMPORTANT THINGS: dress very warm, in layers, be aware that you are at 14,000+ feet altitude, people do get sick because of that and bring a good pair of binoculars along if possible.
