We just finished the 3d/2n salt flat tours ending in San Pedro de Atacama. We had an absolutely incredible time with our guide Juan and driver "ears"! The tour itself is really spectacular. It blew us away and has been the highlight of our South American adventure. Its so much more than just the salt flats. Every 20 mins is breathe-taking. Our guide Juan was funny, sarcastic, very knowledgeable and gave the real history of Bolivia & Peru. Juan also had the best and most fluent English of any tour guide we have met, which meant we got way more out of the trip. We had great chats with him over the 3 days. Our driver was also incredible and they both made sure everyone had a good time. The accommodation on day 1 was a lot more comfortable and cute than expected. The day 2 accommodation is basic and cold (so come prepared its the same on all tours) but completely made up for by the incredible hot springs experience under the stars and again for sunrise. The food was genuinely really good and very generous on this tour and that's coming from a fussy eater. We were really suprised by how much help we got crossing the border to Chile. Juan and our driver made it incredibly easy, telling us what form to fill in, where to go etc. We were very pleasantly suprised to find hot tea and food waiting for us when we swapped to our bus to chile. They gave us plenty of help with Spanish on the chile side too and we even got a hostal drop off on the other side which was a great suprise. The only tiny draw-back is the car is a bit cramped but I think that's the same on every tour. 10/10 would recommend this tour to anyone! There's way more included with this trip than they advertise and what I really liked was that there were very few additional costs on the tour (other than those advertised for national park entrances) and we didn't need to keep buying stuff along the way. So, it might be a little more pricey than others but there's no real hidden costs so it probably works out cheaper. Other tours we've been on have loooots of hidden costs. Great tour, great guide, really amazing memories!

We did the 3 day, 2 night tour with Red Planet Expedition from Sunday 20th March to Tuesday 22nd March and we had an incredible time!! Our guide Juan and driver Yas were so lovely, informative and professional and we felt very safe on the tour. They went above and beyond other tour companies, we were the last group remaining on the salt flats to watch the sunset and the first on the salt flats the next day to watch the sunrise. Red Planet were very accommodating, there was a vegan in our group and all the meals were very good. It was worth the money and we would definitely recommend!

I just did this tour last week as a solo traveller and I highly recommend it! Red Planet Expeditions took us on a well organized tour through beautiful landscapes and with professional and friendly people. Our guide Ivan was very knowledgeable and nice, and our driver not only drove well (we didn't even need to change a tire!) but he was also good company, providing everyone with constant sweets and coco leaves to help with the high altitude. They were both really helpful with taking pictures and giving us ideas for fun poses and videos. Take a good camera!

The accommodations are basic but I think I got lucky because I had my own room both nights because there were only 3 people on the tour - not sure how it would have been if there were more people. Anyway, I would just recommend taking a warm shower before beginning the tour - Red Planet actually has one at their office and I was able to shower after arriving from the overnight bus from La Paz, which they also picked me up from the bus.

I arranged the tour via WhatsApp and they were always quick to respond.

Hello, we recently did the 3 day tour with this operator, which we chose because of their recommendation in different guides, the most expensive by far by the way.the day before we paid half as a deposit, when we arrived in the morning the day of departure, we paid the rest, and after this we were informed that the agreed itinerary would not be possible because "it had rained a lot and it was very dangerous for us, etc, etc". Immediately we looked at each other among some of the customers who were there, and we started a debate with the employees, who gave different reasons and arguments: "it is too late to reverse the direction of the itinerary" "very dangerous", and so on ... In the middle of everything appears the one we think is the boss, and in a moment he takes control of the situation, agreeing to take us to the middle of the salt flat (something very spectacular) and that before had been flatly excluded. They also say that they do not work with other companies, another proven lie, as we found them on the whole tour with other tours, they also assure that their drivers do not drink alcohol, I can assure you that ours did not drink at least not in our sight, but we almost had an accident on 2 occasions, perhaps because we were tired from "coking" until very late at night. As for the guide, I must recognize his work, but I think that somehow he also feared for the state of the driver and his driving.as for the salt I can only say that it really is something incredible, especially after raining, as the reflective effect of the accumulated water is that of a large mirror, the danger was another big lie, at no time the height of the water exceeded 20 cm.

We were let down at the last minute by another tour company, rang Red Planet and told them what had happened. They took a taxi to where we were stranded, picked us up and drove us to their offices. They paid for the taxi.
There were nine others already booked on our trip - we were fortunate to get the last two places on the tour leaving that morning.
Our tour guide was Juan, and he could not have been more helpful taking photos for everyone, setting up props etc He found us a perfect place to watch the sun set giving us the most perfect photos.
The accommodation that night was first class. The lodge was purpose built by Red Planet, the first of several they are building.
The accommodation on the second night was not owned by them and was not good - the only down side to the trip.
The food was fabulous and they catered for all dietary needs.
One person on our trip got sick. Juan arranged for someone to drive out and pick them up. They were taken to hospital and put up in a hotel over night - all paid for by Red Planet. They couldn't have been more caring.
There is a lot of driving on the tour, but the drivers were great.
We got to see all of the famous sites in the area, plus a few extra.

The trip was amazing. Salar Uyuni is beautifull and there was enough time to make nice and funny pictures. Tourguide Eddy Rojas has many years of experience and has a lot of knowledge about nature. He also happens to be a very professional photographer and is willing to help everyone for the best pictures, he even brought things with him to make nice optical illusion photos. The accommodation to sleep is not the best, it is really really cold so bring warm clothing. The food is really tasteful and good. The hotspring is amazing! Eddy did pay a lot of attion about safety and taking good care of nature and us. He made the trip fun and really interesting. I would recommend this trip to anyone! (But bring warm clothing!)

Great tour with Red Planet! We rode in a colonne of 3 vehicles and all drivers were very expertly (knew how to deal with the surroundings). Our guide Oscar had a lot of information to provide and was happy to share it! Prepared food was good and accommodations perfectly fine. The 2nd night is quit basic (no running water) but there are hot springs so you can still take a 'shower'. Very satisfied with the experience and definitely recommend this organisation.

Best experience of my trip in South America. I went in 2018 with friends and I'm writing about it two years later! Driver was Jose Luis and guide was Israel (or something that sounds like that). Food was amazing and the guide was great fun and had great interest and knowledge in geology which he shared with us. He also told us a great deal about Bolivian politics, history and culture as we travelled. Met other people who had issues with guides being drunk so it's better to spend a little more for a lot better experience.

A Highlight of our South American Adventure was amplified by the great drivers and guides. Thank You so very much for all the care and attention. All tour companies follow the same rout, what makes the differnece is the depth of knowledge and experence of the guides and drivers. I is clear they have been well trained and this is a passion for them. Do yourself a favour pay a little more and go with these guys. The food, accommadation, cars and guides were all fantastic!

Having read some reviews we were a little sceptical regarding the accommodation and service we would receive but the trip turned out to be unforgettable, the places visited were stunning. All lunches and dinners provided were of good quality considering the remoteness of the places we visited. The accommodation was basic but comfortable (you dont get showers on the second night but you do on the first, also bring your own towels), red planet also offer sleeping bags to rent but I didn't bother and felt like i didn't need one. The guide and drivers were good fun which added to the overall experience. Carlos our guide was university educated and knew so much about the history of Bolivia and the places we visited and was very passionate about his country. We crossed into Chile at the end of the tour and Carlos helped us get our exit stamps and made sure we were all safely on the bus to Chile. I would highly recommend Red Planet to anyone looking to do the Salt Flats tour.
