Yes Red Planet is more expensive then other companies BUT it is well worth the 1200 bolivianos you pay.
1st~ fluent english guide (louis was fantastic ) and our driver wilson refused even a sip of beer over the entire trip ... Plus you travel as a convoy of at least 2 jeeps, so if you do break down you have some help available!
2nd~ food provided was fantastic , even given chocolate bars as sugar helps with the high altitude! Wine also provided on the last night.
3rd and best of all, on the final night you do stay in very basic accommodation BUT you stay 50m from the thermal pools (other tour companies go to these pools on the morning of the 3rd day) imagine below 0° conditions whilst sitting in a thermal pool with the most picturesque night sky as your backdrop, words can not describe it (for us this was better then the actual salt flat itself )
So do yourself a favour and go with Red Planet :)
