Hello -
We are planning to go t Chile for 3 weeks , June 23rd to 12th July.

Could anyone who has travelled in Chile please let me know as to how easy / difficult to travel within the country ?
Can tours be organised before arriving there ?
are there shuttle vans / buses available ?
Comments most welcome
thanks , Sandya:)

Tours can easily be booked before coming here.

Chile runs more like a European country than a Latin American one. With the exception of poor driving and walking habits. Of course there are buses and shuttles to be had. Try Tur-Bus.

More later. I'm tired.

We just returned from Chile. It's wonderful and very easy to travel in. There are lots of buses and lots of tour companies. We generally prefer to travel independently so didn't do many tours but two that we did enjoy were the wine train (we took a package that included bus from Santiago to the wine train) and private tour out of Arica with Andean Duncan Tours to see the geoglyphs and the Chinchorro mummies. It included a lot more, but those were the highlights in my opinion. I'm guessing you can't go wrong in Chile!

Hello
Traveling around Chile is easy, there are buses that take you north and south if you want to go is by train, then bus, and not expensive.
There are many tour companies, but the truth is that I prefer to travel on my own, is more entertaining and easy, no great danger, Chile is quiet and I think you come in good time.
