Overall rating

3.8 / 5

based on 27 reviews

Great tour. Guide and driver were both excellent, very knowledgable and experienced but also friendly and funny. Good value for money for 3 jam-packed days. As a tip, bring plenty of cash (at least 300bs) as toilets cost 5bs every time and snacks are not included. Also be prepared for extremely basic accommodation - mixed-sex dorms, very cold, no running water or electricity (basically camping!). Not to let that put you off by any means, just make sure you’re prepared and have enough warm clothes etc. 100% recommend this tour.

Good organization and very beautiful landscapes, receptive to what is expected in this remote region. Guide and driver very friendly and attentive. We can only regret that the vehicles are not in very good condition.

Excellent organization, nice and competent tour guide and driver, great hotel - it was an unforgettable experience!
