We had the best time on our one day your. Our guide, Santiago was knowledgeable and fun. Never met a man with more to say about flamingos! The flats were breathtaking and he made sure we were able to get plenty of pictures - our driver even participated because our group was so small! Thanks for a great day!

We had an incredible three days on the salt flat tour with Red planet. Our guide Obed made sure that we were happy and enjoying ourselves 24-7. He knew so much about the salt flats and atacama desert and was able to answer all questions with confidence as well as giving extra information. He paid real attention to detail with... More

I wanted a Spanish speaker. I hate the English/ Spanish guides, too much talking. The company arranged a car with only Spanish speaker and a driver as well. His name is Juan, we called him the "conductor DJ" the whole group was 100% happy with the tour, back to back. They warned us about hard conditions but nothing negative happened!... More

such a good company! It's more expensive than other companies, but definitely worth it. Very nice and safe cars, with good drivers. I felt safe the entire trip (3 days, with a drop off in Chile). The food was amazing and there were snacks too. I had Obed as the driver/tourguide and he was GREAT. Friendly, helpful and a lot... More

Did the 3 day tour of Uyuni in July with Red Planet and just loved my experience, would highly recommend. If you do the tour around July, get prepared it will be cold as temperatures can go down on the second day around -10 degrees celcius (renting the sleeping bags is a very good idea for that part of the...

Met some amazing people from around the world on this trip. You will see hotels made of salt, Land Cruisers that will take you to 16K feet elevation. Natural hot springs. Lunches in the mountainside. Up close encounters with Llamas and Alpacas. Overall, just a great experience. My only gripe was access to restrooms, it is not a comfortable trip... More

Did the three day tour of the salt flats with Red Planet. The salt flats were amazing and I highly recommend visiting them if you are in Bolivia. The first night was spent in a salt hotel, quite unique. The second night was at the south end of the country in a very basic hotel with dorm rooms. High altitude,... More

Did the 3-day tour with Red Planet. Our guide was skilled and proficient in English, the car was not too full and we felt very safe during the entire trip (no excessive speeding etc.). We were picked up from the bus stop at 5 a.m. and were brought to a warm(!) place to have breakfast. This was a great touch,... More
