Very smooth trip from booking to finish, except the tour is advertised as flights to and fro in a day, but later learned that doesn’t exist anymore since Covid, so José(the owner?) offered me a private land transport back to La Paz. La Paz crew comes to your hotel at the expected time to pick you up, help checking in at the airport and takes you to the gate. Once you arrive at Uyuni, your guide and a driver awaits you and takes you around for the whole day. Especially my guide(though unfortunately I don’t remember his name anymore) was fantastic throughout. He was very attentive and accommodating around my schedule(I had to leave earlier than expected due to a scheduled flight) and took care of me so well. I suddenly had an altitude sickness in the middle of the day and he stopped in the middle of a road to make me coca tea, and sourced medication for me to take. He was also very creative in photos and videos so has been directing me to various different poses all day. Loved the day.

The tour of the flats was in incredible. Israel and Coco (tour guide and driver) were not only excellent, but also a lot of fun! I highly recommend this tour. Although one down side, because of covid, flights were limited and I was only able to fly one way. The way back to La Paz was provided by a private driver, six hours back to the city. The day was a bit ridiculously long and given the fact the tour was quite expensive, I imagine most of that cost is the convenience of flying down and back, no discount was provided to me after asking. That was the only disappointing part of this tour experience. Again, tour itself was fantastic!

Highlight meiner Südamerika Reise! Ich hatte nur 2 Tage in La Paz und war mir nicht sicher, ob sicher der Aufwand für einen Tag nach Uyuni zu fliegen lohnen würde, aber ich bin sehr froh, dass ich mich dafür entschieden habe. Dies war einer der besten Tage meiner 4 wöchigen Reise! Die Organisation verlief reibungslos, Guide Roger und Fahrer waren extrem freundlich und haben mir jeden Wunsch von den Augen abgelesen. Wir hatten ein wunderbares Picknick mitten in der Salzwüste und haben Abends mit musikalischer Einlage von Roger den Sonnenuntergang bewundert. Ich kann die Tour bestens empfehlen!
