    The Valley of the Moon is very impressive and the tour stops at various beautiful and "touristy" hotspots, including a short hike on a large sand dune with a beautiful view, some old salt mines and also the "Three Marias" (of which only two stand). Finally we went to Coyote Rock (which you are no longer allowed to enter for safety reasons) and we watched the beautiful sunset with a little wind.

    The tour was excellent, and our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. There was an issue with our pickup, and therefore they were an hour late to pick everyone in our group up. We had to send multiple messages and calls before someone told us that they were on their way. Once the tour started, however, everything went smoothly. You should definitely go and visit this location as it is a must.

    The excursion was good, we were picked up right at the hotel on time. The tour was in English and Spanish as promised, only the sunset at the end was a bit short. There was a snack and aperitif after the tour and the car was air-conditioned. However, we had to go back to the car 5 minutes after the sun had set, so there was not much to see of the beautiful play of colors of the sunset.
