Todos los tours contratados han funcionado muy bien, tanto en los transportes, como la puntalidad y en los alojamientos. Los guías nos han parecido buenos profesionales y muy atentos. Agradecer a la sra Alejandra su atención y buen hacer para solucionar satisfactoriamente todos los problemas de alojamiento que se presentaron al contratar los tours de Atacama, de Torres del Paine y de la Región de los Lagos. Además de las iniciativas propuestas para mejorar y adaptar los tours a nuestra disponibilidad y a los enlaces con los vuelos ya contratados por nuestra parte. Sugiero aumentar y esquematizar la información sobre las excursiones de los tours.

Services from VisitChile and the subcontracted agency TurisTour were excellent. VisitChile staff did an excellent job of booking the trip. TurisTour did an excellent job of rescheduling the tours to work around the road closures due to weather conditions. All staff were extremely courteous and helpful. We appreciate receiving a refund for the tour to the geysers that we were unable to take because the road was closed.

The only problem we had with our trip was an unexpected delay upon arrival in Calama airport on Aug 25. The road to San Pedro de Atacama was closed. In our minimal Spanish, we understood that it was due to weather and that we could return to the airport, get a hotel room in Calama,or transfer to another vehicle at the shopping center and wait for an undetermined amount of time. The drivers for TurisTour were very accommodating, but we were not able to call anyone on our cell phones or speak in English to anyone who could explain what the problem was (road washed or landslide? temporary closure due to snowfall?) and what our options were. We tried arranging for a 4WD vehicle (since they were being allowed through) with our limited language skills, but finally decided to wait. It all worked out OK--the road had just been closed due to snowfall; it reopened and we were driven in TurisTour van. It would have saved us several hours of anxiety, however, if an English-speaking age
