We had an amazing experience and are very happy with choosing Ruta Verde for our three days / two nights Salar Uyuni tour from San Pedro de Atacama. It was very easy to communicate with Gijs from Ruta Verde and getting the trip booked up in advance and ensuring to include the best hotels in the area. All questions were... More

Yes, it was very expensive if you are a backpacker. But not all of us are. And I think this was a superb trip worth every penny. Our driver was lovely Freddie. He looked after us and drove perfectly. He showed us all the sights we could hope for and did not rush us around. With only 2 of us... More

This was our first tour for the first trip in South America. Highly reccomment Ruta verde. We rate this as one of the best 3 day 2 night tours we've done on our lives (been travelling well over 3 decades!) - we found the landscape, wild life and fuana unique including Vacunias, flamingoes, colorful lakes, unique salt islands and the...

We booked a three days/ two nights private tour with Ruta Verde.The tour is little expensive though. We were very skeptical of this tour as we have seen bad reviews for other tour companies regarding drunk drivers. But Jorge (Our Tour Guide) and Senon our driver were amazing. They took good care of us. Jorge was very informative and mingled... More

I was a bit skeptical about what we would get for our money but now I am a believer. This company delivered. We did the three day/ two night trip from San Pedro staying in two good hotels, both unique in their own way. We did not get a guide and relied on our basic Spanish with Freddy our driver.... More

We took a 3 day tour from Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama. Our guide, Favio, was quiet and serious and we always felt comfortable with his careful driving. He was very patient with our limited Spanish and made every effort to explain things slowly so we could understand. The vehicle was kept as clean as possible given the windy,... More

We booked a three days / two nights private tour with Ruta Verde as all operators told us in advance that group tours would always come with very basic accommodations, no heating, shared dorm and bathroom and no electrify. Since being on our honeymoon, we chose the private tour. What we liked: - preorganization and really quick answers were fantastic... More

Hello Philipp and Marie, thank you for your review with so many compliments about the tour. Just one thing: You called our reply to your email ridiculous (regarding lunch on day 3). We just want to clarify that our response to your email was not: ‘thank you for the feedback; we will improve’. We replied as follows: -----Original Message----- From:... More

We had a wonderful 2 day 1 night trip with our guide Freddy in a safe comfortable Toyota Land cruiser. To be fair this trip isn't cheap so we had a pretty high expectation given we opted for a private tour for just me and my husband and whatever the highest class of hotel on the way to San Pedro...
