          One of the highlights of our 3 month South American trip
          Joker tours was amazing! With so many options for providers we had lots of questions. They answered them all timely and with patience. Our guide, Oscar was so knowledgeable and kept us informed of what was coming up along the way. He was also a great photographer at the salt flats. Our driver, Dionicio, was extremely safe and patient as well. We had a fantastic trip seeing all of the highlights. Our only regret was that we could have used a fourth day to explore some of the sights a little longer. Bolivian landscape is stunning! We would 100% recommend Joker to anyone. We did the superior category. Accommodation was amazing with heat and hot water. Food was catered by Joker, tasty and plentiful!

          The gift that kept on giving
          This is without a doubt the most special tour myself friends and I have ever been on, everything from start to finish exceeded our expectations. Everything I am about to list below was included in the tour price. We were first picked up from our hotel in La Paz at 8:00pm by private cars and taken to the bus terminal where we boarded the overnight coach. The coach seats were very comfortable and reclined to almost flat, we were also given a small meal on the bus before getting some sleep. The bus arrived in Uyuni at roughly 7:30am where we were greeted by our Joker tour guide (Oscar) and drivers (Ever and Christian) and taken to a local hotel in the private cars we would be spending the day touring in. We were then given two rooms at the hotel to shower, refresh and relax in prior to being served a nice buffet breakfast. Oscar then picked us up at about 10:30am and the tour commenced. The tour was beyond incredible and was perfectly scheduled, Oscar gave us in depth information on every place and area we visited (train yard, salt processing plant, island, etc.) and spent lots of time taking amazing photos and videos of us once we got to the salt flats. We were treated with lunch in the middle of the flats which was set up beautifully by the Joker team and then spent the last part of the day watching the sunset with wine and a cheese board. Following the tour we were taken back to the hotel to freshen up and then to bus terminal for our return overnight trip to La Paz on the same coach, we were back in La Paz by 6:30am the following day. I don’t typically write reviews this long winded but this one is an exception due to how special it is, we cannot thank Oscar, Ever and Christian enough for how far above and beyond they went to ensure we had the best day possible with the most fun. If you are staying in La Paz and are considering a trip to the salt flats I cannot recommend this tour enough, you definitely won’t regret it. Thanks again Joker team!

          Absolutely unforgettable experience! Definitely recommend.
          We would definitely recommend doing a tour in Bolivia with Joker. We did both the 2 day private Uyuni Salt Flats including Laguna Colorada and the Eduardo Avaroa Reserve as well as the 1 day City Tour in La Paz. Our guide in Uyuni Oscar is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about wild life and the geology of the area. He also took really creative and professional photos and videos of us at the Uyuni Salt Flats. (I didn‘t post our photos & videos with people in it due to private reasons, but they are really amazing). It was overall a dream come true. Our driver in Uyuni Silvio is so attentive and helpful. Everyone at the Atipax Boutique Hotel is so attentive to our needs as well. We also had a great day in La Paz with David our guide and Diego our driver. If you‘re considering about having an unforgettable time in Bolivia. Don‘t hesitate. Joker Expedition is the best choice!

          Amazing Experience - Salar de Uyuni and lagoons
          After searching and contacting several tour agents for a private 3-day Uyuni trip, we chose Joker Expeditions and had a wonderful experience with them. As usual, we had several questions before the trip, and the owner of this young company was very communicative. He responded to all my questions very fast. Throughout 3 days of the trip, we had Al as our guide and Iver as our driver. Al’s enthusiasm, professionalism and Iver’s carefulness made the tour safe and enjoyable. We enjoyed all the lunches they prepared. The sunrise and sunset drinks and snacks were another nice surprise! We also highly appreciated that they gave us a 4WD Toyota Lexus, the best car ever, which made our long drive less tiring. Highly recommeblnd this company!

          Excellent day in the flats
          After searching all the options to visit Uyuni salt flats, chose Joker Expeditions and had a wonderful experience with them. I did an overnight bus to/from La Paz and the logistics were handled perfectly. Timely pickup from the hotel, bus transfers etc. Spent a beautiful day touring the flats and Mauricio (the guide) and Coco (the driver) ensured I was taken care of in every way. Highly recommend this company. Some tips/info: - If you travel solo and they don’t have enough travelers, you’ll have to pay for 2. (worth it). Get 2 bus tickets each way so you don’t have to have a neighbor -When you arrive, you’ll get a room at their hotel which was surprisingly nice. Shower, charge etc bc after the tour, you won’t have time to do it -The cacti island is quite difficult to climb if the altitude is an issue- also not very accessible so take that into consideration if you have mobility issues -The overnight bus is about as good as you can expect. It has usb chargers and the seats almost fully recline. But the footrest doesn’t get horizontal so it is a bit odd to have your legs from knee down hanging off (Titicaca was the company). It does have a “bathroom” but it’s for #1 only and wasn’t the best- I intentionally didn’t drink a lot of water on way back to avoid using it. -Dinner isn’t included but you can buy dinner at the hotel office while you wait for your transfer to the bus. Decent meal runs about 65b Overall, a great option if you have limited time and don’t want to deal with the logistics yourself.

          Amazing Experience - Salar de Uyuni
          I had an incredible experience on my Salar de Uyuni trip with Al and Coco as my tour guides. Their knowledge of the area was impressive, and they went above and beyond to ensure we had an unforgettable adventure. From the stunning salt flats and hike to the cactus overlooking the salt flats to the stunning sunset, every moment was breathtaking. Al enthusiasm and professionalism made the tour enjoyable and informative. I highly recommend them for anyone planning a visit to Salar de Uyuni. Best lunch and best champagne toast after the tour. Best day ever!

          We had a wonderful time with our 1 Day Tour to Uyuni Salt Flat! We were picked up at our hotel in La Paz just before 8PM to drop us off at the La Paz Bus Terminal. He (Joni) assisted us from making sure we have our tickets and where we should by certain time for the bus ride. At exactly 9PM our bus left for UYUNI. It was a very comfortable 9 hour ride. We arrived in Uyuni just before 7am, and there’s already someone waiting for us. He (Christian) dropped us off at the hotel where we had breakfast and advised us that we will be picked up at 10:30AM for our tour! The Hotel concierge are very accommodating and very nice! At exactly 10:30AM, our English Speaking guide had arrived (Janet). Janet is very knowledgeable about certain/specific things about Uyuni, we really appreciate her guiding us the whole tour. She was very patient with us, especially we love taking photos! In this tour, lunch was included and we were surprised by how Christian and Janet set up the whole experience. Food was great too! 👍🏼♥️ In between, they drove us to Isla Incahuasi (Cacti Island 😊) At the end of the day - they drove us to the area where the sky reflects on the water, which is what the Salar de Uyuni is known for - largest mirror in the world! We did have a lot of time to just enjoy and take in the moment…. Here, they once again set up another snacks/tea/wine for a toast 🥂 with the Sunset in the background! Janet is also very creative with her Shots! We will never forget this experience, and I definitely recommend this tour to anyone! We had a great time and there’s definitely no flaws TBH :) At the end of the tour, they brought us back to the hotel where we had a chance to freshen up before our ride back to La Paz! Everything was in time and I couldn’t have asked for a better Tour! Thanks Joker and to your team! Much ♥️ @rgtravels.co

          Unforgettable experience
          We had the most amazing tour with Joker Expeditions. From start to finish everything was flawless. The night bus from La Paz was well organised and we were greeted by our driver Andy once we arrived in Uyuni. The breakfast and hot showers at Hotel Atipax were a bonus and much appreciated after a night bus. The day was jam packed with activities as well as a delicious lunch enjoyed on the salt flats. Our guide Janet and driver Andy were fantastic from start to finish. We would highly recommend booking this tour with Joker expeditions - professional service, unforgettable experience.

          This is no JOKE, Joker Expedition really gave us a dream trip of the SALT FLATS, etc in BOLIVIA! VIVA!!
          The Salt Flats were beyond spectacular and so are the other sites when we drove to the Sololi Desert. We did a customized 5 day package. First of all, the experience was even made more memorable because of the people at Joker Expedition. Jeannette our Tour Guide, our Driver Abel, Jose-the guy behind all these, are amazing and very accommodating. We really felt good about traveling with Jeanette and Abel. The SALT FLATS--it transforms itself to this blinding white to spectacular sunsets. The Lagunas and the flamingos, the rock trees, the mountain range...What is to forget? We stayed at the Palacio de Sal--and I was so tempted to lick the walls :) and Tayka Hotel in Sololi. All over, the Bolivians are wonderful people, we had such a great time, up there with our safaris in Africa. Amazing job, guys! BTW, we did visit LaPaz as well but on our own and that was also an amazing experience- we went to the Tiwanaku for a day trip. LaPaz is a happening town!

          Superb private trip with Joker Expeditions
          I cannot say anything bad about the experience I had with Joker Expeditions ranging from the initial enquiry to the final drop off at the Bolivian border. Everything was exceptional, the guides, the communication, the vehicles and the food. I would recommend them, and have been, to everyone who wants a private trip within the stunning country that is Bolivia. Thank you guys.

          Unforgettable experience!!!
          Jorge coco, a really good guide who made me enjoyed really a lot in this trip, from preparing food for me, taking me to the amazing secret place to visit, setting up camera for my IG-able photos and video(haha), so on and so on. Still a lot! Bicycle on salt flats is my best experience there, never imagine I can do this at this heaven -like place, especially having fun while all the salt coming to my pants and I became a bacon after riding bicycle🤣🤣.(p.s. Make sure to put enough sun cream to avoid you became a overburn bacon🤣) Although I dont speak Spain and he only speak less English, he tried the best to explain everything to me. Can feel thoughful in tiny things. If u would like a memorable journey, I recommend this one to one guide trip a lot. I definitely rated high score for this tour!

          Excellent custom made tour
          Excellent tour company, did a custom tour that included La Paz, Puma Punku, Copacobana and a flight over to the Uyuni Salt Flats. They did have one hiccup and only booked me for one night in Uyuni but quickly worked to correct their mistake; mistakes and changes to tour plans can happen and its how they responded that won me over. Highly recommend them if you're going to Bolivia.

        We did the four-day salt desert tour from Tupiza to Uyuni and can only recommend it😍
        It’s cheaper to book the tour directly with the guide and not through an agency.
        We had with Rosario a very experienced and courteous guide. He always knew how to take us to the beautiful places, before someone else was there, so that we could enjoy nature all to ourselves. I can only recommend him. Feel free to contact him directly, he would be happy. +59168401882.

        I’ve been travelling South America for six months now and this is the best tour I’ve been on so far. So many different views and experiences in these four days and three nights, it will take some beating for sure.

        Our driver and guide Luis Junco was perfect in every way. He took care of us throughout the adventure, made sure we were safe and was very knowledgable about every place we went to. I can’t recommend this enough.

        We went on the 4-day tour from Tupiza with Alexandro tours.
        Alexandro tours offers an ‘alternative’ route where we came to all the regular sites, but all by ourselves - no other tourists.
        It was long hours in the car, but the drive was beautiful. We also had many stops, which were very cool and pretty. There is of course a deadline so you don’t have that much time at each spot.

        Our driver Julio and our cook Esmeralda took so good care of us. We felt wery safe w. Julio behind the wheel and as the acting guide. Even though we didn’t know Spanish that well, Julio tried to explain everything. We were also lucky to have 3 French/English/Spanish speakers in the car who helped out a lot.

        Esmeralda cooked very good meals and was very interactive with the group when the day was done. It was the best meals we had had so far in Bolivia.

        We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone thinking of doing Uyuni - don’t just do the 1 or 2 days. Go all in - it’s worth it.
