About
Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni is considered one of the most extreme and remarkable vistas in all of South America, if not Earth. Stretching more than 4,050 square miles of the Altiplano, it is the world’s largest salt flat, left behind by prehistoric lakes evaporated long ago.

      Great tour with Jaime
      Jaime was a lovely tour guide- very attentive, informative and took pride in his job. We had a great location for lunch with snacks and wine as the sun set.

      Awesome tour for a really good price
      We had a great experience with Skyline Travel! We booked a spanish tour, and it was easy to follow. Our guide Victor was very nice, had a great playlist and even spoke some English. He always explained things about the locations we visited and was generally very helpful. The accomodations were great (and the second one was not as basic as we were told, it was clean and comfy!) There was plenty of great food and we even got vegetarian/vegan options (e.g. soy-lomo saltado). In comparison to some other agencies that offer the exact same program, Skyline Travel really has the best prices! We went to San Pedro after the tour and they took us back to Uyuni (from the border) three days later without additional cost (we checked in beforehand for availability).

      Flexible, professional, great value
      They organized us a lst minute sunrise tour at Uyuni salt flat. They were extremely quick to reply on Whatsapp even though I texted them with our last minute request after 9 pm... Our guide/driver Alejandro was a great photographer as well. He made sure to accomodate all of our photo requests. He knew the best spots and ways of taking photos and videos. Absolutely worth every penny!

      Great tour! The guide, Ivan, was very patient, answered all questions perfectly and repeated information when needed (my Spanish is not the best) and he took the best photos! Both hotels were very clean (the first night I stayed in a private room with a private bathroom), the showers were hot, the food was super tasty and there was wine for dinner! If I ever go back to Uyuni (hope so!), I will definitely book the tour of the Salar with Skyline Traveller again!

      A happy Nicaraguan/Costarican couple
      We arrived at Uyuni at 6am with just hopes of booking a tour and the team of this agency replied immediately. They not only helped us to safely get there, they gave us the best price, they helped us with luggage storage (completely safe) and then the overall tour experience. Our guide Alberto was amazing, he gave us 5 star service with the meals, accommodations and of course photos! My partner and I are taking the best memories with us and we hope to connect with this team again!

      Everything was amazing - thank you Ruben!
      Amazing trip! Everything was perfect. Our driver and guide, Ruben, was the nicest and most patient man ever. He drove very safely and always made sure we had enough time and photos at each location before moving on. He explained everything in a lot of detail too (in Spanish) so we got a lot of insight into what we were visiting because of him. The meals were super tasty, and considering the remote locations of the accommodations this was really great. Finally, he was very conscious of time on the last day and ensured we reached our bus to cross the border into Chile with plenty of time. Thank you Ruben! Klaudia & Carl

      Amazing tour with incredible guide Ruben!
      The 3 days tour with skyline traveller's was amazing. Our guide Ruben not only informed us about Uyuni's beautiful nature, he also kinldy offered funny group pictures of us and continued to bless us with his road trip music in the car. I am vegan and never expected the delicious 3 meals per day, I felt so appreciated since I was nervous about this part before the trip. I would definitely recommend this agency and hope to see Ruben again since he holds a special place in my heart.

      Amazing 3-day Tour through the salar
      I booked the 3 day tour with two friends and it was incredible. The tour was very well organized and the food was very tasty. There were even options for vegetarians and vegans. Our guide Ruben was super nice. He knew a lot about the salar and nature, was able to answer all our questions (plus the music he played in the car was great and he took great and extraordinary photos of us that are a good memory). I can recommend the tour 100%.

      Incredible Uyuni Trip
      We loved our three days Uyuni tour! We saw incredible scenes and places, and had great accommodations, even a Salt hotel. We were a tour with only vegan/ vegetarians and the food was always amazing and plenty of options. Our guide Ruben was great as well. He explained us a lot about the different places, cultures, traditions, nature and animals. He was really patient with everyone, really kind and a great photographer. He even put on some great music! ☺️ We enjoyed our time a lot and could definitely recommend it!

      3D2N Salar de Uyuni
      We had a really great 3D2N tour through the Salar de Uyuni. We did the booking directly in the office. As it was late in the evening and we just arrived by bus the agency dropped us at our hostel. Nice service, we didn‘t expect this! If I am thinking about what such a tour makes it special, then it‘s the service of our guide / driver. Special thanks to Alberto, he is a really save driver and a great guide! I can recommend Skyline Traveller 100%!

      Unlike anything you've ever done before!
      Did the 3 day, 2 night tour of the Salt Flats with Skyline and am super happy with the overall experience! Our guide Beto was incredible! He was attentive and always ready to answer questions, inform of what we were doing, and went above and beyond to ensure all of us were comfortable. Beto also took the BEST photos and wanted to make sure everyone in the group got the photos they needed to make sure this was a memorable experience. Tips to know before you go – note this trip was taken end of November: 1. American travelers – do your research on the Visa process as you will need to provide printed documents that will be kept and filed as well as $160 USD to enter Bolivia. You can buy a Visa upon arrival but the full process will take ~45mins so come prepared. 2. Get your Bolivanos at the airport – no ATMs in Uyuni as far as I could find 3. Bring more Bolivianos than you think you need you will pay for every bathroom stop, need money for park fees, cash for the small shops if you want any water/soda/snacks. 4. It gets very cold at night! Pack appropriate clothing – I recommend puffer jackets and layers underneath that you can shed as the day gets warmer. 5. Food – it is very basic as defined in the tour description. Be smart about what you select to eat as they’ll serve you some form of cooked meat, salad, veggies. It’s edible with a high risk of getting sick from it for us weaker bellied folks. Pack proper meds as you spend hours driving with no bathrooms in sight so take that into consideration when you are choosing what to eat. Pack plenty of snacks as that’ll likely be what holds you over. There are a few stores in town by the office so be sure to grab snacks for 3 days and plenty of water. They do serve water and coke with each meal but not enough water to keep you hydrated for 3 days. 6. Water –This one is so important given the harsh weather you’ll experience. It’ll be windy, desert dry, freezing cold, hot in the sun, altitude gains… the elements are tough on the body and water can really help here! Be sure to bring enough. They’ll store it on the top of the car for you too. 7. Accommodations – very basic but you’re so tired at night you will fall quickly asleep. I’d recommend renting a sleeping bag if you don’t love sleeping in jackets and layers. The bathrooms and showers are clean and you can shower but I’d recommend wipes as the water may or may not be hot. 8. Lastly, brush up on your Spanish because there is a high chance you’ll struggle to communicate otherwise. We were ok with it given we got to practice our Spanish a lot more than anticipated. Overall, really great experience and you will not be disappointed on the views and landscapes as those truly make the full experience worth it. And of course going with well experienced tour guides such as Beto at Skyline makes it worth it!

      Superb , wish we had more time
      We did a 2 day 3 night trip including pick up from the Chilean/ Bolivian border travelling through Siloli Desert, Laguna Colorado, Sol de Manana followed by the Salt plains at Uyuni. The guide Hector and driver Vladimir were superb , came well prepared, really helpful throughout. Hector was very knowledgeable and took a lot of trouble to to explain / show us everything along the way. We did have a slight issue with our travel plan from the UK team but this was very quickly dealt with by Hector and Vladimir. All in all I would certainly recommend Skyline and Hector / Vladimir- they’re brilliant at photography too!!

    My fiancé and I done the three day tour with Skyline travellers and had an awesome time! Our guide Jamie was attentive, kind and always looking to make us laugh. The car was comfortable and we felt very safe with Jamie driving.

    The first night accommodation was lovely - my fiancé and I had a double room. The second night is very basic due to the hostels location, and very cold. We shared a 6 bed room with our group but Jamie made sure we all had enough blankets and a hot water bottle.

    Highly recommend the tour and this company.

    We took a 3D2N tour of Salar De Uyuni & this was the best tour we had in quite some time. We booked our tour with Skyliner Traveller & we were super thrilled that we picked the right tour operator. Even before the tour started, Anghy was super helpful in sharing all the information we were requesting her from time to time. Just 24hrs before our scheduled tour, we had challenges at the immigration crossing over from Peru to Bolivia which resulted in 2 days of delay & Anghy was super flexible and rescheduled our tour at such a short notice. We had one of the best moments on this tour with some spectacular and stunning views. Our driver cum guide, Plascido was the best! He took absolute best care of us during the entire 3 days tour, went extra mile to show us some of the remotest spots & he was also super creative with the camera work taking some absolutely beautiful pictures & videos. The entire arrangement from food to hotel was absolutely spot on. We will definitely come back for this tour & will close our eyes and go with Skyline. Anghy & Plascido – you are the best!

    We absolutely loved the salt flats tour! The scenery was incredible the whole way. Our driver Saul really made our experience more enjoyable. He was patient, knowledgeable, a safe driver, great English, and timed our route perfectly to avoid crowds. He’s also an excellent photographer and always made sure he took the time to get us great pictures. I recommend this tour and this company and definitely Saul.

    Wonderful experience. We joined a small group of 6 people and we travelled along Salar de Uyuni and the deserts and lagoons further south by a jeep. It was amazing! Wonderful landscapes, many animals, excellent guide (Rigo) with many explanations about what we were seeing.
    I definitely suggest this tour! But be ready for the night cold! Although the hostels provide warm blankets there is no heating system and the temperature could be -10 C!

    Wow, what an amazing tour this was from start to finish. Our guide was so friendly and lots of fun. He really went above and beyond. I did research for a long time and I am so happy to have booked with Skyline. We highly recommend them. As with most tours to Uyuni, the second night you stay in a hostel in a dorm with 6 people. We knew beforehand so there was no surprise. Just something to be aware of :)

    I informed the agency that I have an allergy in broad beans and was asking our guide before every meal if it contains broad beens where he was always assuring me that it doesn't. Last dinner's soup however did contain them and our guide's response to this was that he did inform the cook. Luckily I didn't eat them, although I tried the soup. When we asked him what's the plan if there is a reaction due to the exposure, he said there is not much we could do as the next village was 2 hours away. There is no emergency plan in the tour and the company did never respond to my incident report.

    Incredible tour in the Salar de Uyuni. Experience amazing and unreal landscapes over this three day tour. Jamie was a great guide and took a lot of time to take photo from us and explain everything. It can get very cold, so definitely put on warm clothes. The hot springs on the last day are bliss. Can definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see Bolivia's beautiful nature.

    Fantastic, albeit exhausting, experience doing the 3 day trip with Jaime - master 4x4 wrangler and dance choreographer! We felt in completely safe hands the whole time, Jaime drives safely and managed the entire itinerary efficiently and with good humour. I wasn’t expecting too much from the food to be honest, with it being in the back of Jeep for hours but it was surprisingly delicious! The dinners provided at the two hotels were also a pleasant surprise. Would absolutely recommend Skyline.

    I managed to maintain very fluid communication with Angie from Skyline Traveller on WhatsApp which helped me in organising all the logistics prior to my arrival in Uyuni. I took the 3-day tour in Uyuni with them and it was a fantastic experience> from the pick up at the airport, the delicious food experience with a local family, and the salt hotel on the first night to the very experienced driver Ruben who went the extra mile so the group could see the maximum number of things. Would definitely recommend Skyline for the Uyuni Salt flat tour (and surroundings)!
