I did the 3 day Salar tour from San Pedro de Atacama with Estrella del Sur Tours. After the border formalities we were split into two groups (our tour had 12 people). And breakfast is served. Its then onto the tour.
Our driver Sielo (not sure of spelling). Sielo only spoke spanish, which was fine - pretty much all the drivers only. But through the trip, he was extremely good. He was willing to answer questions and he drove considerably well and safe throughout the trip. Our last meal (lunch after the Salar) he had his family cook our lunch and join us - which I thought was a wonderful touch.
The meals overall were standard. Nothing amazing. But it wasn't bad. It was a good portion and filling. All meals included a 2L bottle of Water and Coke.
The scenery throughout South-West Bolivia is absolutely incredible. It is a rugged and wild beauty. And its definitely an out of this world area. Its literally breathtaking. A place that you cannot get tired of. I wish that the tours actually went a bit longer so we could have more time to explore some of the places.
The accommodation is basic. But lets face it, you are in the middle of nowhere. And you are lucky to have a bed.
Overall, the tour provided everything that was needed for it. And it lived up to the expectation of one of the 'must sees' of South America.
