We opted to do a self-guided tour on bikes which was tough but fulfilling. Make sure you return before dark though, the roads have no lighting. Valle de la Luna was definitely worth the visit, the landscape was amazing. At a few of the viewpoints we were alone which made things even better, we felt very small. The sand dunes... More

Amazing trip out for the sunset and to the valle. The views are fantastic- although a tip for you would be to take a few chilled beers to watch the sunset with! It would have made our trip much nicer (although still fantastic)

This valley is definitely worth a visit and is not far from the little town of San Pedro de Atacama. The geology is fascinating and one can really imagine what it would look like on the moon.

Went with a tour which didn't do real justice to this area I'm sure but from what I have seen it was very impressive. OK you are sharing the regular sunset mirador with a few hundred others but it was a big WoW nevertheless, not speaking about the sun disappearing so much but the last daylight in the valley and...

You simply have to go on this tour, with Jerald, he is a highly intelligent and articulate tour guide who speaks some five languages. He is a Physicist by profession but has dedicated the last seven years to the Attacama Desert. Coupled with his extensive knowledge goes x humour that kept everybody happy. I would recommend Pablo the driver he... More

I loved this visit, absolutely stunning! Actually I planned to visit this part by myself on a bike. But I decided to join my friends o a tour we booked with 'Flamingos' tour operator. Except it is super touristic since all tours do exactly the same it was a nice tour. Great views and good information.

A fantastic experience with incredible views. My main advice was be to choose the agency wisely - all agencies offer this tour for similar prices (10,000-15,000 CLP) but the service offered varies so greatly. The two agencies I recommend specifically for this trip are Desert Adventures and Cosmo Andino. They visit locations much less crowded than others, and visit many... More

We take the tour from desert adventure and we like it kind of anyhow. Guide sometimes forget to speak english for us. Also was little frustrating because we are "young" and our group was also a olet people so we have to wait them like all the time. Valle muerte was nice but we think it was maybe little boring,...

We came to Valle de la Luna twice, initially as part of a tour (8,000 pesos per person) and then with rented bicycles the day after the tour (3,500 pesos for 6 hours of hire). The entrance to Valle de la Luna costs 3,000 pesos. The entire place is very special and offers truly spectacular views. Personally, I would highly... More

A must when visiting Atacama. Do not miss a walking tour of The Valley and if possible visit with a full moon
