I just finished a two day shared tour with them yesterday. They’re really great! they’re also the only company I found operating shared tours so as a solo traveler I saved a good $400. While shopping around, they were very responsive over WhatsApp and gave me all the information I needed. My first day they picked me up at 8 am and brought me to their office where I left my bag and got a run down of the itinerary. Jose was my guide and we left to pick up the one other person on the tour that day. He gave us some information, but I wasn’t really in a talking mood so he was very chill about letting me sit and listen to my podcast. We went to a mirador and continued driving. We went to a small town with a church in the middle of nowhere. It’s a lot of driving but that’s some of the best part because the landscape is so beautiful that looking at the window was one of my favorite activities. There were lots of llamas and vicuñas and Jose had information of everything. We went to a farm that had excellent hot springs and a steam room. The water was hot and the view was excellent. There was a place to change as well. We then had a really tasty lunch of spaghetti, sauce, and llama meatballs. We then drove through more remote and insanely beautiful landscapes towards Laguna Verde. We stopped at another beautiful lagoon under snowy mountains with flamingos whose name I did not know. At Laguna Verde it began to snow which was amazing. We drove back to town, and I was dropped off at the awesome salt hotel the trip included. It was the nicest place I stayed my whole trip. I was brought my dinner by the company which was a lot of food and one of the best meals I had in bolivia. The secretary who brought me the food was so nice as was everyone with thé company. I was picked up at the hotel at 3 am for the stargazing/ sunrise tour. It was breathtaking. We picked up two other people and went out onto the salt flat. Thé stars were amazing. I’ve never seen them that clearly before. One of the people int he group was a photographer, so Jose driver extra far from town and other cars o he could have complete darkness for his shots. Jose also had lots of ideas and tips for us to take the perfect photos at every stop which was very helpful. The sunrise was gorgeous and Jose even took crazy videos of us while he drove around in circles which turned out way better than expected. We drove back and I was dropped off at my hotel. I had a large excellent breakfast included at the hotel. I took a hot shower and a nap before the next part of the tour. At 10:30, Jose picked me up along with three other people for the full day salt flat tour. We driver out onto the slat flats and driving over the most unique landscape I’ve ever seen. We went to the train graveyard and the slat factories. We drove to the Dakar monument, the only hotel on the slat flat, and the flags of the world to take photos with plenty of time to wander around. We had lunch here. We had quinoa, llama steaks, and veggies. It was very good. The vegetarians in our group had the option of very full veggie omelettes. We drove out to the fish island and had the chance to hike up to the incredible viewpoint. We then drove back across the salt f’are to take pictures in the dry section. Jose had lots of Picture ideas and brought props to take silly perspective photos. We then got on top of the car for the views during sunset as we drove to the wet part. As for the morning we were provided waterproof boots. We took some cool pictures and enjoyed a long sunset at the salt flats. We then drove back to town in time for the 8:00 buses to la Paz. This was a truly removable experience, and especially during Covid I would highly reconnecte going with this company for your slat flats tour.

Great tour! Highly recommended! We decided to do the 2D1N tour because presently the Eduardo national park is closed. This tour was absolutely amazing, we were only three persons and Jose, our guide was great. He is an experienced guide, respectful to us and the nature we encountered. He gave us a lot of information, he is a really good driver and always ready to help satisfy you in the best way. Also, Jose prepared very good vegetarian food for the whole trip. The hotel they arranged for us was perfect, we arrived a bit late but warm delicious food, wine and comfortable bed was waiting for us. This tour is a must to do in Bolivia, don’t search anywhere else, just go for it!

I did the 2D/1N tour of the salt flats and it was incredible. I had a driver named Franklin who was very professional and was super fun to talk to. He always had lots of energy and if you have the chance to request your driver I 100% recommend him. He was great at taking funny photos and a navigated the rough roads really well. The communication with the company was really clear on what’s app and they picked me up from the bus station without any problems. The food was really delicious and there was tons of it. I got to see all the sights and since I traveled during the pandemic, some of the most famous tourist sights in the world were empty. You will love this tour, don’t hesitate to book.
