We did a classic 3-day tour of the Salar and lagoons with Ruta Verde. First of all, the booking and further communication via email was the best we've seen in Bolivia and Peru -- very fast and answers to the point. They have a bank account in Europe which was convenient for us to pay the balance. We were picked up from the airport by our driver/guide Wilson with a very comfortable 4WD vehicle, and did a beautiful tour of the Salar. Wilson was very communicative and interested, we enjoyed this a lot. Unfortunately our driver was changed the next day because of an "emergency", the exact nature of which remained unclear; this was done professionally with no time loss for us. The new guy was again a very good driver, but less social and less skilled as a guide, so we had a bit less fun but still enjoyed all the landscape and the lagoons. All in all we can recommend Ruta Verde for this trip, although the experience may vary with the driver a bit. By the way, we used the Amaszonas flight from La Paz to Uyuni -- don't hesitate to book it instead of the bus, which is a horribly bumpy ride. Planes are modern Bombardier small jet airplanes, the airline seemed professional and reliable. The only thing that happened was that they changed our flight to one leaving two hours earlier as they had too few people flying on the later flight (so check your email the day before).
