We started in the Valle de la Luna and walked to a viewpoint. From here I had an incredible view of the valley! After that we looked at a lot in the valley and finally watched the sunset. The guide was very friendly and funny and carried the group away with his friendly manner. A great tour!

We very much enjoyed our tour with Desert Adventures! The places we visited were beautiful, and as advertised in the tour. The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable, bilinguale english/spanish, and gave us enough time for pictures. The driver was good, no criticisms there. The tour also gave us a bag of snacks which was nice. We left a bit late, but we came back to San Pedro a bit later so all good. I definitely recommend!
