This agency has a main office on the main street ("caracoles") of San Pedro de Atacama and I can only assume that its location is the only reason it has survived as I see the other terrible reviews now which do not surprise me. (Should have checked first!) We only booked a transfer from San Pedro de Atacama to Calama... More

Recently done the 3 day Uyuni salt flats tour with colque tours and I must say they were nothing of excellent! I booked the trip without reading any reviews so was extremely pessimistic after reading them. I am happy to say however not a single one materialised. The food was great, the accommodation was great, the jeep was in good... More

This tour was a rip off. We paid for a 4-day tour including lodging and meals. Colque Tours shortened the tour by one day and never returned the difference. Moreover, they left us stranded without any hotel or place to stay because our hotel reservations started when the original tour ended not a day earlier. Colque tour also lied regarding... More

We had paid in full for a 4 day and 3 night tour before arrival into San Pedro de Atacama. We called and learned that our tour was cut short by a day as "the drivers did not want to work on New Year's Day." One would think this would have been discussed. Cecila refused to refund us the $600... More

I decided to copy the message that my husband sent to the office in La Paz to explain the problems I had with this company. I arrived at Colquetours Uyuni's office exactly at 10 AM, considering the necessary time for payment and finishing what else it could be needed to start the tour, that you had also set to be... More

I've just returned from a three day trip with Colque Tours to Uyuni, leaving from San Pedro de Atacama. I had read several reviews on this and other tour companies going to Uyuni, and I must confess I was really scared... all of them seemed aweful! I've decided to take the tour with Colque because they were one of the... More

They will steal your money! I've booked via internet, have payied 50% of 187 U$ Dollars in advance and when I arrived in San Pedro de Atacama, the agency was closed. I had no information about my tour (booked for the 25th december), but I've decided to do my part of the deal. On the next day I've waited outside... More

We've had a terrible experience with Colque Tours at the end of JULY on our Bolivian Salt Flat Tour from San Pedro de Atacama, Chile to Uyuni. We booked the tour through STA. We were misinformed of where to meet the tour by the owner of Colque thus missed our trip. If you have any issues with this company, do... More

I feel really bad that some people have had bad experiences with Colque Tours, as my tour was absolutely excellent. I hope this is down to them learning from past bad reviews. We were picked up and taken to the border where we met our guide (Saul) and the family we were sharing the jeep with. We had absolutely no... More
