When we checked in to our hotel we had a note from the operator to say we would be picked up at our hotel at 5.30am. We were surprised when another operator called at the hotel at 5.10 am to collect us, so we hastily joined them. No explanation. When we returned to our hotel after the tour there was an envelope waiting for us from the tour operator who collected us advising that we would be collected at 4.30am that morning - a bit late to receive the note after the tour, but fortunately we didn't get in before the tour or we would have waited from 4.30am to 5.10am.Not very good planning all round and never an explanation from the original operator about the change.Anyway - large bus. We were the only English speakers, but fortunately we had a good guide who we had been with the day before and made sure we understood everything. Tour basically did what it said we would do.Note: 1 they say it's cold at the geysers and they are right. November and minus 5C. Of course it warmed up quickly.2. The geysers are more steam and bubbling so don't expect geysers that shoot high into the sky.3. The roads to the geysers are bumpy and poor.4. The entry to the geysers is 10,000 pesos ($20) which isn't included in this tour price.End of the day the geysers are worth visiting. I picked this operator because I thought we would be a smaller group - I didn't realise I would be passed to another operator who I could have booked with in the first place.
