Had a great trip with guide Israel and driver Christian. Starting with a very comfortable bus trip down from La Paz, reclining comfortable seats allow a decent rest or sleep on the way. On arrival in Uyuni was provided with facilities to freshen up, followed by a great breakfast. Switching to a smaller but still comfortable vehicle, we set off to the Train graveyard, then the salt processing factory before heading out proper into the salt flats. Breathtaking views and several stops for photos followed, including springs and the salt hotel. A lovely remote stop was chosen to stop for lunch, great food and refreshments and we were ready to carry on. Moving on to one of the cactus covered islands, again providing amazing views and perfect photo opportunities. Finally a scenic location to watch the sunset was chosen, some more food and drink was provided, before the spectacular skies appeared. Finally back to Uyuni for bus back to La Paz. Highly recommend this memory making trip!

It was an excellent experience, it far exceeded my expectations. Very good attention and accompaniment throughout the tour, from leaving the hotel to returning to it. Our guide in Uyuni was the best, he took care of every detail, likewise there are no words to describe how impressive the Salar is. It is a highly recommended tour.

Our trip to Uyuni was made really convenient with Joker Expedition. The overnight bus arranged for us was really comfy, and the seats reclined basically into beds. We were picked up from the bus doors at Uyuni and taken to a hotel where we met Jose, the manager, and were given access to a room whilst we waited for our tour to start. We were also given breakfast here. Our guide Israel collected us and took us around the Train Cemetery, the salt processing and the markets at Colchani and then onto the Salt Flats. We had a really nice lunch in a secluded spot on the flats and then Israel helped us take lots of fun photos with the perspective! After lunch we did a hike of the Incahuasi island. Even though it was the dry season when we were there, Israel knew where there was still some water left so we were lucky enough to enjoy the reflections as well, with cheese and wine at sunset! Overall, a really great experience, we would recommend!
