Rising toward the fading stars high atop the Andes, El Tatio Geysers erupt from more than 80 vents into wraith-like plumes, which dance in the first crisp golden rays of dawn. It's not quite the largest geyser field in the world (it's the ...

The place is great. Strongly recommend go visiting the place.
The local operator was not the best. Is a very cold place and the breakfast was on the cold side.
There were other local operators better prepared.

I provided the pick up address 2months in advance, and reconfirmed this and the pick up time 48 hours before the tour. But despite getting up at 03:15 the bus did not turn up. The Chile enquiry number would not answer when we tried 15 mins after the agrred time, until eventually 30 mins later someone answered who was working from home and based in Santiago. They said they could not find the booking snd slso was unable to contact a different local company tgat was actually providing the tour. We shall see what happens now. So far quite unimpressed by losing a day of holiday.

The bus was uncomfortable. The geysers were good, but the breakfast was not. The village was disappointing. It is too long and not really worth it for those who have seen Yellowstone park or other geysers.

This was a fine tour, and the people contractor Touristour were great. But there was little value added beyond the transit to get to these places, and that's what you're paying for with one exception, which I'll note on that tour's review. Our bus broke down on the way there, so we missed the geysers at dawn. But the company brought substitute transport as soon as possible and was good spirited about it all I can't see blaming them for one of those things that happens. Anyway, though, if you have time and resources to rent a 4WD instead, you would be well advised to do so.

Collected on time, and our guide was very pleasant. We were not rushed thru the geyser area, and he took time to explain different features along the way in both spanish and English. The hot pool was disappointing, only really tepid, with a few warm spots.

The tour operator was great. The reason I can only give this one star is that purchasing the trip through this website is way more expensive than purchasing through the same operator on their website. I learned this after the fact and regret the purchase.
