Firstly, these operators really care about what they are doing. I didn’t think about the full moon when I arrived in Atacama, but this clearly effects visibility. They informed me of this and I planned around it. Good to think about if you only have...More

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.

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.

There are different start options. Obviously the later you do it the better (darker = better visibility of stars etc). We wanted to do an 11pm collection, but due to weather changes, we ended up doing at 9pm collection and... More
