Pedro Salazar St. 623 | Abedul Bld., Ground Level, La Paz, Bolivia
The guided tour was really helpful, taking me to the authentic Mercado de Las Brujas and later to Valle de las Animas. Both agent and guide were really careful with the details. I highly recommend Banjo Tours for helping the experience of this interesting city...More

We, a family of four with 10-year old twins, did the private 6-day tour starting in La Paz and ending in Uyuni. It was a great tour and we feel we saw what can be seen of Bolivia in such a short timespan.
Amazing trip from La Paz via Sajaama ending in Laguna Verde. Guide and driver were excellent as was other couple on trip. Saw so many places that are impossible to see on our own. Very safe! We were treated top notch from start to finish....More

Thank you for your interest in an authentic experience in the Bolivian countryside since our trips aim to cater for people just like you as opposed to those looking for the usual/easier "tours". I thought I'd help you answering from our experience as a company but hopefully other people will add to my reply. In short, the 5 day trip during the rainy season does indeed avoid the other salt flats because of impassable conditions. However, it is still early to conclude that you would not have the opportunity to see it in March because there is a chance it could already be dry by then. At the time of writing this, we have had quite a bit of rain on both salt flats but Salar de Uyuni is quickly drying. February might or might not be rainy and depending on your specific date, you might be lucky that by then, our usual itinerary would apply. My final advice is just to wait, we can keep you informed the following month and you can decide then. If it is still wet, we will honestly let you know so that you can make an informed decision. Hope this helps.

Hi Fatmuimui, unfortunately notice board rules mean we can't post contact details, but here's a little about our experience with Banjo. We had a group of 5 (2 couples and a solo traveller), none of us knew each other before the tour (well, except each couple obviously) and we pulled the group together using Banjo's notice boards on the Banjo website & TripAdvisor, along with a few emails to Banjo using their advertised contact details. We began organising just a few weeks in advance. Initially we didn't get a huge response on the boards or from Banjo either and we weren't overly optimistic, but as the group began to form we got a lot more communication from Banjo and things got organised very efficiently in the end, but it did only get confirmed in the final few days before departure. I know that doesn't offer much comfort if you need to lock in a group booking well in advance, but I would suggest it is probably worth persevering with Banjo. I got the impression from talking to other travellers there are some quite sketchy operators in Bolivia (both in terms of safety and some not even going close to fulfilling the promised itinerary etc), but Banjo felt safe at all times and in our case at least they seemed to genuinely care about doing what they could to deliver what they promised. There may well be other good operators there, but I didn't hear anyone else raving about their operator. Hope that is of some help. Good luck!
