Itinerary
Arrival in the Easter Island Airport. Reception in the Airport with flower necklace and transfer to your selected hotel.

Our tour starts at 3:00 pm approximately from Hanga Roa to Ahu Akivi, the first restored Ahu by science in the Island in 1960. This Ahu with 7 Moai Statues is one of the few in the center of the Island, with its statues facing the rising sun. Reportedly, they represent the 7 explorers sent before the arrival of Hotu Matua to get to know the Island.

Then, we will visit the Puna Pau quarry, in a small crater of red scoria. Here the Pukao or headdress of the Moai were obtained. There are still some unfinished and abandoned pukaos. And we will finish at the Ahu Huri a Urenga, where we will find the four-arm Moai so-called the astronomer because is aligned with the southern winter solstice (June 21)

Return to Hanga Roa.

Departing from Hanga Roa's town at about 9:00 am, going to Ahu Akahanga, so- called the "Platform of the king". The legend tells that Hotu Matua'a's tomb is near this place. There, we will find 4 platforms, 12 Moai statues, 8 Pukao and towards the interior of this Ahu; it is possible to see the best-preserved village of the island.
Later, we will go to Ahu Tongariki, with 15 Moai being the largest Ahu of the island. After that, we will meet Ahu Te Pito Kura, which possesses the highest statue of the island raised in an Ahu, the Moai Paro (10 meters of height and 85 tons with a Pukao of 11,5 tons). Near this ceremonial temple is the great spherical stone that is identified as the Center of the World (Te Pito o Te Henua), as the legend tells, it was brought to the island by Hotu Matua'a in his craft.
After that, we will arrive in Ahu Nau Nau, temple of a complex construction due to its different levels where we will find 5 Moai statues with Pukao. There, we will see petroglyphs in the backs of the statues. We will continue our excursion to the Rano Raraku Volcano and quarry, where there was carved most of the Moai of the island, using the volcanic rock of its hillsides. There are an estimated number of 400 Moai in several stages of carved. Finishing our adventure, we will go to the Anakena Beach. It is a beach of white sands chosen for the arrival of the Ariki Hotu Matua'a and his sister Avareipua. Anakena is the name of a small cave in an adjacent gully.
Return to the town of Hanga Roa, total duration 8 hours.

We will continue our tour by visiting the Rano Kau Volcano where we will be able to see the largest crater on the Island and one of the largest sweet water reservation of the area. Finally, we will visit the Orongo Ceremonial Village, old and magnificent ceremonial city located in the western side of the Rano Kau volcano. It features 53 elliptical houses made of sandstone and a small square window looking to the sea. In this place, the most important ceremony of the second period of Easter Island was carried out: the election of the Tangata Manu (Bird-Man), this ceremony stopped being performed 150 years ago, due to the arrival of the first Christian missioners.

Hugo provided us with outstanding service and information. He worked very hard on our behalf to make we had a good hotel and outstanding tours on Easter Island. He was amazingly quick with his replies. He called us in the U.S. to make sure flight dates worked with our existing travel schedule. The entire package he put together for us worked perfectly. We highly recommend Hugo and this agency.

The hotel Altiplanico was an excellent choice. The location was good - an easy walk along the cliffs into town, the sunset views were excellent. The staff very friendly and the food excellent. The Aku Aku transfers and tours were great. Our guide was the best and was very knowledgeable about the island and its history. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire stay. Thanks

Had we known more about the more remote areas of the island we might have rented a car. Maybe suggest some extra excursions available for walking or by car.

Muy buena experiencia, se cumplieron míos expectativas. El único punto a mejores que no confirmaron el horario de recogida del hotel el día del traslado al aeropuerto, sin embargo el personal del hotel lo resolvió satisfactoriamente.

Sólo sugeriría que se confirmen los traslados en el taxi con un poco mas de anticipación para sus clientes internacionales, ya que los vuelos salen en ocasiones con un día de anticipación y la hora de confirmación del traslado fue un poco estresante porque se hizo el mismo día que salía mi vuelo para llegar a Santiago desde México.

We spent the 6 days/5 nights in Easter Island, good tours of full 2 days with a dinner show in Hanga Roa, very friendly tourguide (Christina) & driver (Neil), nice hotel near the beach & town... Love it. Love Chile. We will visit Patagonia next year.

No, complaints but took us 30 hours to get there and 30 hours to get back home, LAX-IAH-BOG-SCL-IPC-SCL-BOG-IAH-LAX.

Excelentes los guías tienen completo conocimiento sobre todo, no sólo de la historia en si, sino que de lo que uno pregunte. Talvez podrían adaptarse un poco más al grupo etario en algunas ocasiones los guías iban muy rápidos y la gente mayor camina más lento

Muy conforme con el servicio entregado. No tuve que preocuparme por nada durante mi viaje ya que todo estaba coordinado. Todo fue muy rápido en cuanto al trámite de compra del paquete y una vez allá disfrute mi estadía sin Preocuparme por pagos ni papeleos. Excelente servicio

Corroborar servicios y calidad de los hoteles. Tuve inconvenientes con el agua caliente de la ducha en el hotel que me hospedé que no se solucionó porque no era un problema por desperfecto. Todas las habitaciones tenían el mismo problema( poca presión de agua, no salía agua caliente)

Now that my sister and I have returned from our trip to Easter Island, I wanted you to know what a wonderful time we had. The arrangements made by visit.chile.com were wonderful. That, of course, means you! You always responded quickly to my inquiries and with helpful answers. The hotel was a real bargain with friendly staff, good breakfast, comfortable room and lovely gardens. We couldn't have been happier there. The tours on Rapa Nui were superb. Our guide, Samuel Atan Tuki, was knowledgeable, humorous, easy going and helped people enjoy each other although we spoke many different languages. I tried to enter a review for your agency and for the motel online but don't know if they went through or not. I hope they did because I would encourage people to visit Rapa Nui and other parts of Chile and use visitchile.com

For a trip to Easter Island in Sept it would be good to know that there could be several days with heavy rain. We were not prepared with hooded raincoats. Luckily for us we had enough days to reschedule 2 tours. Others, on shorter trips, would not be able to reschedule.
