    A really interesting trip out to Sewell

    A worthwhile tour that shows Chiles copper industry past and present.

    Well organised.

    The journey to Sewell through the copper mines was fascinating

    We not only saw the camp, but the whole surface operation of the mine. It was so much more than we had anticipated. The history and scenery make this a must.

    A great day in the cold of Sewell. Most interesting past and present. My only problem was that for the first part of the tour being the only English speaker I was given the English commentary in private but hearing my guide over the loudspeaker delivery of the Spanish guide was disconcerting. We soon put that right and all went well from then on.

    An amazing historical site that shows the golden age of the mining industry in Chile! We were picked up on time at Baquedan Square, our tour guide Marco was very professional and spoke fluent English, included lunch was absolutely delicious and the whole tour was just perfectly arranged!
