This was the best tour ever. I am glad we made the booking for 9 pm tour before we left Sydney as this tour gets booked pretty quickly. It does get cold by the time the tour finishes. So plan ahead!

Possibly the most engaging and informative experience by Rodrigo who loves the subject with a passion that is transmitted to the audience. A definite must if you are visiting the region. A big hug to Potter too.

I was sceptical with all the positive reviews as sometimes there is discrepancy in people's perception but you cannot easily understand what it is. Here, I am just sad that one person gave 1 star and she didnot participate in this spectacular show. This guy...More

We booked ahead through our tour company. Depending on the time of year for tourism, it might be a good idea to book ahead. There are numerous sky tours available in Atacama.
