This was a highlight of our recent trip to Chile! There were so many geysers filling the entire field: large geysers which take your breath away with their power and force, and tiny baby geysers that are just beginning to form. Be sure to go...More

Realy did not worth money and time. When I was there there was no spectacular geysers. It was like water boiling in the pot. Some steam and norhing more.

The Geysers del Tatio are the third largest geothermal area in the world (Yellowstone is #1). Though not as spectacular e.g. the highest geyser isn't more that 10-15' being located above 14,000 ft. and cold at the suggested viewing time (dawn) the steam columns rise...More

You have to be up early. I was collected at 4:30 and to be honest, i think 5 or 5:30 would have been fine but it was still worth the early start. There are so many geysers and you can see the fumaroles and smoke...More

Don’t get me wrong, the geysers themselves are truly amazing, but the tour would have been 10 times better with a proper guide. Ours did not leave us enough time to actually enjoy this unique landscape. I’m sure he explained a lot of interesting stuff...More

This is a standard trip from San Pedro at 4 am; it is a long traffic jam thought the desert with hundiréis of other buses. It is a good place but too busy, too touristy - just spoils it in spite of wonderful scenery. We...More

The geysers are interesting to see, but at sunrise there are a lot of other travellers there making it hard to appreciate. We had rented a car and made a day out of driving up to the Geysers (1.5 hours N of San Pedro) and...More

Like many bleary-eyed fellow tourists, we arrived at the crack of dawn for an outside breakfast and as the sun rose the geysers with the steam against that backdrop was fantastic and we even felt that the silhouettes of people added to the overall scene....More

You can drive close to most of the geysers so one must walk for about five minutes or about 100-200 yards as I recall to be at the geysers. However most of them can also be seen from further away so one not need to walk... More

We were there last year and I wish we rather rented a Jeep than relying on the tour operators. 100% possible. Just make sure you have a map and sat nav.
