Easter Island tour companies and best time to go?

Jump to last reply

I am looking at a trip to Easter Island in either October or November. Ideally we would like a 5 or 6 day/6 or 7 night trip. A stay in Santiago is not really necessary.

I would like to know if anyone can weigh in on the following:

1. Best time to go - Oct or Nov? We would do minimal snorkel and focus mainly on the land portion.

2. Tour company advice - a few I have found:

chiletourism.net - 8 day tour to Easter Island and Santiago
visitchile.cl - 7 day/6 night to EI only
**tried to email via the site and did not work!
visitchile.com - 7/6 night trip to EI only
**have seen spotty reviews, but seem to be older; company did email back to me quickly
easterislandtourism.com - seems to be a travel "consolidator" vs an agency that sells its own trips

3. Any and all feedback appreciated - I really want to ensure we have a reputable agency to deal with.
