“Amazing place”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

Out of this world. The actual salar is smaller then I thought but very interesting, and the area surrounding the salt lake is other worldly as well. Must see when in Bolivia.

“What a marvel”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

The salt flats are quite extraordinary. 100 km square, nothing like you will have ever seen. Quite a slog to get too if you drive but well worth it.

“Salar d'Uyuni with "Cordillera Travellers"”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

If you go in Bolivia, it's the place to do.
We have done 4 days with the company named "Cordillera Travellers" without problems, and the young driver was very friendly.
Be careful with other company you have sometimes driver totaly pissed !!

“Salar De La Uyuni”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

If you have come this far, this is a must do!!!! Far from the Hilton or even a hostel. You will probably end up having no shower for 3 days, very little electricity, and the banos are probably the worst you will ever see, but sooooo worth it!!!!! bring lotsa TP and wipes, a good flashlight, there are several places to stop and buy water and don't forget some snacks. I was fortunate to get hooked up with an incredible group of people as I was travelling alone. Most definitely rent a sleeping bag(fur lined).....the hostels you stay in provide extra blankets as well, and I actually found it too warm!! Also, be prepared to share your hostel room with several people! Again, I was with a great group and we had a blast. Best tour group to go with is Red Planet!!!! Ask for Rolando as your guide and Leonardo as your driver. I had read lots about drunk drivers and accidents, but Leonardo was the best, as was Rolando as a guide!!!! When you are finished your 3 day tour, you will be filthy and tired, but why else would you be here??!!

“Your Travel was top notch”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Had a reservation with Thiago Tours that they messed up the dates on so ended up booking though Your Travel at the last minute.

Our Driver Rodger was great and the food was fantastic, only surpassed by the photo ops along the way!

Ásk Eros in the office where to stock up on cheap wine for the tour!
