“Good driver/guide”

Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

We booked the tour with San Andino, and were very happy with it. The driver/guide was very knowledgable and spoke pretty English. Group wasn't too big either and we had plenty of time to see everything. We booked other tours in and around Atacama desert with them and I can recommend them as being reliable and professional

On an open day, wedged between business travelling, 5 of us hopped in our rented trucks and headed for the Moon Valley. I’m glad we had the trucks as we were able to go wherever we wanted in the park and at our own pace. I would not want to experience such a unique part of the world in an organized tour.

The park has countless formations, views, and hikes to exhilarate most anyone from novice adventurer to the more hardcode. We traversed through a small cave system using the flashlight apps from our IPhones. We hiked up & down sand dunes as well as rocky outcroppings. The sun does beat down and our lung capacities were tested a few times during our hikes. It’s an unusual to be in a place virtually void of all vegetation. My favorite part I think was the eerie silence that exists in such a seemingly limitless expanse. This would be an ideal place to have a spiritual moment with a proverbial ‘walk in the desert’. Just bring water and sunscreen!

Nice walking tour! Great view and very well guided by the Explora guide, Gustavo. One of the best tours we've done there

If you take your time to visit the most arid desert in the world you must come to this corner of it. Of course you will see sand dunes, rodky formations, sand caves and salt formations. No plants or cactus. Skies are clean, air is so fresh your city lungs will notice the difference. But then if wind picks up you might get a dust cloud!. Bring wide brim hat, loose clothing and plenty of sunblock! Is a big place and is best to use an SUV if you are not going in a tour. Do not forget your camera and plenty of water and if you are going to stay to see the sunset and the night sky bring windbreaker or sweater. Also no food service inside the park.

Lots to do and see. It is a must see if you go to San Pedro. Make sure you walk through the caverns.
