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!

Wir sind im Valle de la Luna gestartet und sind zu einem Aussichtspunkt gelaufen. Von hier aus hatte meinen einen unglaublichen Ausblick auf das Tal! Danach haben wir uns im Tal noch einiges angeschaut und haben uns zuletzt den Sonnenuntergang angesehen. Der Guide war sehr freundlich und lustig und hat die Gruppe durch seine sympathische Art mitgerissen. Eine super Tour!
