La Serena tours


Recommended Posts

We have cruised from LA to Santiago before and are doing a similar cruise again in December.  It's been 12 years, I think.  


For La Serena on our previous tour we took a shuttle to town, walked around and saw the sights.  It was fine, but not spectacular.  We'd like to do something different at this port this time.


We do see tours to the Elqui Valley; unfortunately we are there on a Monday, when apparently some things are closed.  The Princess shuttle to the city has gotten ridiculously high.  I think $69pp.


For those who have been there more recently what price would taxis into the city be?  Or Uber?  Were there tour operators offering tours dock side that could be booked that day?  Thanks!

We were in La Serena on Dec 05th last year, which was also on a Monday. We had pre-booked a tour with Turismo Cochiguaz Tours at a cost of US$65/person. We were the first larger cruise ship to visit since Covid, so they were having some issues getting up to speed, but overall the tour was okay.


If you are interested, you can find more info on what we thought of the tour from the review we did.
