Veja a maravilhosa paisagem do Valle de la Luna em uma excursão saindo de San Pedro de Atacama. Um dos lugares mais secos do planeta, o vale é composto por dunas, cavernas, picos e depressões naturais, criando uma cena inacreditável de uma lua na Cordilheira do Sal. Com um guia, você vai explorar a área a pé, conferindo as cavernas e canyons e subir em uma duna para uma vista do pôr do sol de vai tirar o fôlego.
A excursão inicia num local muito quente - vá com roupa leve , chapéu , filtro solar , sapatos adequados para
caminhada e garrafa de água..Ao entardecer cai a temperatura, então é importante um agasalho.
O por do sol é maravilhoso!
Foi a única excursão que não nos ofereceu um lanche.
Nossa guia , Francisca, é excelente, nos explica tudo e muito atenciosa.
Apesar da escalada inicial ser meio cansativa para a minha condição física, valeu a pena o visual do Valle da La Luna, do Valle Muerte, finalizando com um magnífico pôr do sol. A guia, Maria Eliza ou Luiza, teve dificuldade de manter o grupo coeso para fazer as explicações e também para reunir as pessoas.
Sure the moon valley is a must see, but don't bother with the sunset trip, rather visit in the morning or on your own. Collected from hotel at 3pm and got back to hotel at 8.30pm - could have been done in 3 to maybe 3.5 hours. Lots of aimless wandering and waiting with little direction or explanation from the guides. I had to listen in to other guided tours to get info.Large bus which was full with nearly 50 people.Sunset wasn't really worth it. Maybe watching the colours change as the sun was setting was interesting, but we reached the view point only minutes before the sun hit the horizon. View point was packed with hundreds of people.Worst tour ever! Don't bother.
Recommended, well organized, nice guide, clean and safe car, good timing, great landscape and view points. For improvment: could provide details on the geological and cultural background of the area, spend less time at the 'tres marias' but more time to walk up the big dune. Overall highly recommended trip.
Tour was okay, got good pictures, but felt the tour was a little too rushed and there were just too many people in the bus to have a unique experience. The sunset was so late that we just waited for 2 hours at the end doing nothing. Also many times, a lot of time was consumed waiting for people to get on to the bus. I wish they had a smaller group. Some of the hikes were reasonably uphill, so I would not say it is a cake walk with children.
This was a fine tour, and the people contractor 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. If you have time and resources to rent a 4WD instead, you would be well advised to do so.
