Recommended Tour Companies for Easter Island?

I am planning a trip to Easter Island in either October or November. Most tour companies only offer a 3 or 4 day tour and we are looking for a 6 - 7 day tour given the distance we are traveling. We will not be staying in Santiago for any time.

Can anyone recommend a good tour company as well as any to avoid?

A few I have looked at:



easterislandourism.com (seems to be a travel arranger vs. an actual company).

Any insight is appreciated.

You could always book your lodging yourself and book tours as you want them when you are there. The Easter Island Foundation has a suggested 5 day itinerary, but I have known people to stay much longer and enjoy every day.

my experience was going for 8 days, which in my opinion, was slightly less than what I would have wanted, after enjoying the island so much.

it's a place that doesn't jump out at you, but if you open your eyes and senses, you start to feel just how special it is

three days do it no justice.

we hired a private guide to show us around for three days, then rented a car to backtrack in our own time the places we loved.

for a certain type of traveler

Did you have a satisfactory experience with your private guide? If so, who was it? I am not sure whether I want to do a group tour or a private one. Our situation is rather more complicated since my husband has limited walking ability. He might need to stay in a car for part of the tour. Thanks for your help.
