    Our tour guide was great!! One of the best we've had. It is freezing, so wear a lot of layers. Geysers are absolutely beautiful and set in a crater between mountains, but don't expect a large show of activity similar to Yellowstone in the US. Mostly just steam from them. Hot springs are more like luke warm, so not ideal if you visit in the winter. Try the llama at Machuca it's delicious!

    The place is great. Strongly recommend go visiting the place.
    The local operator was not the best. Is a very cold place and the breakfast was on the cold side.
    There were other local operators better prepared.
