This tour will forever hold a special place in our memories. Jorge's passion, knowledge and experience made for a wonderful and intimate night of observing the heavens. The sky in the Atacama desert is impressive enough but it was taken to a higher level with Jorge's explanations of how to properly appreciate the night sky followed by the use of some quality telescopes. Finally, it was the small details (blankets, hot beverages and personal gifts) that really sets this tour a part from the others. Please, do not leave San Pedro de Atacama without doing this tour.
Jorge is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. It might seem pricey, but it's worth every peso.
