This was a fantastic tour! I felt like we got to see all the highlights of the salt flats without it being too long or too short. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly! Be prepared for accommodations that are not the fanciest. A great value for your money!

amazing trip. Saw so many beautiful sights, had a lovely mixed group in the car and stayed in some really cool places! It gets real cold so be prepared!! Saul was a great guide who was very informative and clear. Being transferred straight across the border into Chile was also really convenient. Thank you!!!

Sehr freundlicher Guide, die Tour selber war super! Unglaublich schöne Natur. Etwas organisatorische Schwierigkeiten aufgrund von fehlender Kommunikation. Der Transfer von La Paz nach Uyuni war nicht gut, der Bus hat die ganze Fahrt nach Benzin gerochen was Übelkeit und Kopfschmerzen verursacht hat, ebenso hatte der Bus viele Male angehalten da irgendetwas nicht stimmte. Sonst war der Bus sehr bequem zum schlafen. Insgesamt war die Tour weiter zu empfehlen.
