This place is mandatory for those interested in history and archaeology. Unfortunately, no agency offers a group tour and the private tours are extremely expensive. The best way to go is to hire a taxi. The visit is short but very well organized by the Coyo ayllu people. Every person or group that enters is accompanied by a local guide that explains everything you need and answers all your questions. The guides are very nice and friendly, they enjoy what they are doing and are proud of their roots. There is a reconstruction of the houses and two rooms where they display the flora and fauna as well as their use and the historical context. You won't see too much of the ruins because only 5% was excavated and the members of the ayllu don't want more excavations because they had the bad experience to loose their heritage when Father Le Paige took many objects and even a mummy to Europe and they were never returned (yes, unfortunately, this happened everywhere in the world and every country is trying to recover its heritage little by little). However, what you see and what you learn from life in those times is really worthy.

I had high hopes from this place as I love visiting historic ruins.

This place was a massive letdown. There is just one “exhibit” - that of half dug walls of 8-10 houses and two “replica” houses constructed to aid imagination.

Don’t waste your time and money in Atacama visiting this site.

Don’t ask me why of how they are there as I don’t have a clue, but they are so unusual you can’t help but stare at them.

The place is easy to visit, it was a parking lot and it isn't crowd.
I didn't like the fact of missing information about the construction or the people who lived there. Was expecting for much more.

We took an uber from the bus station in San Pedro to the nearby village of Coyo, and walked the short walk to the ruins through the desert. The silence is incredible and the view is stunning. When you arrive at the entrance of the museum you have an exhibition with information on the history and the development of the area. Very informative. The previous day we visited the Gustavo Le Paige museum in San Pedro, which contains supplementary information about local culture and history - I found that a great combination. The history of the area is amazing, even if I understand from the reviews on this website, that it is a bit difficult for some ppl to appreciate. After finishing your visit at Tulor go back to the village of Coyo and get a great local beer, made according to local traditions.

This is an interesting archaeological site with a rich history, but it is a little bit out of the way.

We enjoyed this far more than we expected! Once we had found it, don't follow your Sat Nav, look for the handwritten signs along the dirt road or you'll end up at a dead end! The location is stunning and it's a nice and short stroll to the ruins and re-creation of an historical house.
There are information boards back by the entrance and toilets. Price very reasonable. A must when you are in the area.

We weren’t expecting too much from this place but it was really good and authentic. The staff are good and have basic English skills as well (the man we spoke to did). A dirt road gets you there and it is in good repair, just on the south side of the town.

Aldea de Tulor is very close to San Pedro. We had a car, and it was easy to find. The village was first discovered in 1956, has round structures, and is very similar to the precolumbian cultures of the Central and South Andes region. It is quite unlike any precolumbian villages I had previously seen because of the roundness of the structures. It was quite fascinating.

This archeological find was not really much to see but there was a recreated hut and the guide made it worthwhile with his talk.
