I was transferred onto this tour as I had booked direct with the Sewell Fondacion and there weren't enough people. I was worried about VTS because of some of the earlier reviews, but the tour went way beyond my expectations, and Barbara, the guide, could...More

Sewell takes you back in time to the first copper mine in Chile and the largest one in the world. And it is still operational. The scenery is jaw dropping. A must see sight a couple of hours away from Santiago

It's a long tour bus ride from Santiago, but jaw-droppingly astonishing. A unique experience and an incredible 'alien' sight.

Absolutely worth to see it. I advise to take a tour from Rancagua, as it is not possible to go there by yourself - organized tour obligated. Also the price was ok - about 25,000 pesos per person including lunch, guide, entry to the museums...More
