3 words: Waste of time. You get all the way there on the bus $8 day pass per person, and there is only 1 distillery in town and costs another $8 for a tour and measley tastings. Then it is a 3km hike if you want to visit another distillery. You can take the bus back towards La Serena, one distillery closes for tastings at 12noon (what, do only alchohalics go Pisco tasting??!!) Apparently the Capel distillery is in Vicuna but there is no direction, information, or signposts once you get there, so you are on your own, good luck. Anyways the valley itself is very beautiful but it was THE most unsucessful day on our 2 month trip so not exactly something I will reccomend. We also spoke to a guy who did the tour from La Serena to Elqui and apparently you only visit 1 distillery and get a choice between a measley sample of pisco OR a measley sample of dessert wine. So the tours are a bust and doing it yourself is a bust. As far as the saving money reccomendation goes, I would say skip it altogether. You will spend less money buying different piscos in bottles and tasting them for yourself.
Good tip?
