    Very interesting tour. Both the tour guide and driver were very helpful and knowledgeable. Our group included English and Spanish speakers and our guide had no trouble going from one language to the other so everyone knew what was happening or what the information was. Very relaxed pace.

    Beautiful Elqui Valley. Tour pretty mediocre.
