Booked this private tour for when our ship was in port in Coquimbo. Our guide was Samantha who spoke excellent English. She was knowledgeable & ran the tour well. We drove out along the Elqui Valley & stopped for photos at a reservoir. Then on to Falernia vineyard / pisco distillery, followed by a visit to the town of Vicuña which was interesting.
Our return trip included a stop at the la Recova market in La Serena & at the lighthouse . The price was $45 payable on arrival. It was a fraction of the price of the cruise ship tour. I appreciate the cruise tour included a 3 course meal, but I personally was happy to miss that & have more time to see the area I think we saw more too.
I would highly recommend this tour

I took a day tour through Elqui Valley and discovered lovely small towns, gorgeous night skies, and hidden hotels and resorts. It's worth a day trip or two from La Serena, Chile. Try the Pisco Sours and enjoy the laid back vibes of the local towns.
