About
The Salar de Uyuni is a natural wonder of singular beauty and unique in the world, which needs no introduction at first glance, however its imposing magnitude leads us to unavoidable questions such as: how vast is it? Where are you from? Why such an amount of salt and other minerals?, and so a series of many questions, for which it is necessary to have a specialized guide in the area. Reason why we see it necessary to have support on our journey and what better than having a good guide friend.

        Amazing experience!
        We decided to do a private 3day/2night tour to get more space in the car and have more flexibility and it was well worth it! Our dietary requests were accommodated for and the food was well over expectations. Accomodation throughout the tour was simple but had hot showers which was our main objective. Our guide and driver, Rimber was absolutely amazing and honestly made the experience so much better. Whilst we had a bit of language barrier he went out of his way to explain things to us and ensure we had a good time as well as drove gently and safe (much appreciated for someone very car sick on the bumpy roads!) and is overall just a top guy. Highly recommend!

        Unforgettable and best ever
        I choose Trans Andino for Google rate as high as 4.8, and they respond the most promptly and strongest answer. I booked a 3d2n private tour, would like to say the result turned out more than perfect, more than I expected, routes/food/hotels, all details are all very nice, one of the most impressive part is elegant table setting with wine and cheese plate at salt flat in the gorgeous sunset view. Our guide Nelson, I and my husband feel so lucky having chance to travel around heaven-like Uyuni with such a decent and knowledgeable person, he always explains all our questions with full details and wide vision, the biggest surprise is, he is an Asian culture lover, I never imagined I can discuss and get so much insights about history and culture of my country China from a tour guide at the other side of the world. Incredibly unforgettable experience. Our driver Roly, he is like a super hero, always happy to lend a hand to fix any kind of problems of others’s car when we had lunch or hiking. At the last day, we met a Chinese couple with car out of order by the roadside, I ask him and Nelson for help, they checked the car and Roly figured out a perfect solution, driving together back to Uyuni. All of you guys are the best reason why we love Uyuni so much.

        Best experience in Bolivia
        Our guide Rimber was amazing. He spent time taking pictures for us and explaining everything very well, also had a very good sense of humour, can’t recommend booking with this company and guide enough! We had a very nice group, good food and even a few beers at night!

        Amazing private tour to magical Uyuni
        This was a truly incredible tour. Our tour guide was Mario, and he was outstanding: Highly knowledgable, kind, committed to ensure we had the best time, and also a great and safe driver. His English is perfect, as is his taste in music. Also the tour company was a great choice: I needed to reschedule the tour due to losing a close family member, and they went out of their way to get me my money back, and I did the tour a year later. The entire communication was fast and always reliable. Uyuni is a magical place, we went in the shoulder season when it was still dry (November) and it was perfect . We started and ended in San Pedro de Atacama, which meant long drives the first and last day. If I would do the trip again, I would likely fly into Uyuni directly. Make sure you have enough time to visit all the beautiful Bolivian sights and landscapes around Uyuni, you don't want to miss it, even though San Pedro de Atacama might then pale a little in comparison.

        Truly amazing experience*****
        We decided to took the 3day tour (and not the one-day) in Uyuni and that was the best decision ever. You will experience so much more, and the whole 3days is like you are on an other planet, it is beautiful. We had the best experience here during our South-America trip. Our driver was super nice, he brought us snacks and vine while we were watching the sunset at the salt flat. He didn't rush us like the other drivers, we took our time at each location just watching the breathtaking view. He showed us the best picture spots and took many pictures of us. We even get upgraded rooms at both of our accommodation. We saw many other cars from other agencies but I can tell you, Tours Transandino is far the best, I highly recommend it! Thanks for everything!

        Must see - great coverage and dreamy scenery
        The trip was amazing - magical places, I was living a dream. The car could use some improvement (2 cars in the team had minor issues) but the guide/driver was very professional and friendly.

        Highly recommend a private tour with TransAndino.
        Top Tier experience on a private tour. We had three wonderful days with TransAndino and our guide, Mario. The sites are incredible, of course, so the question is, which company to see them with. Our private tour with TransAndino was well worth the cost. Our guide Mario was, first and foremost, an experienced professional. We felt safe and comfortable with him. His driving was safe and never distracted by using his phone or anything. Second, and probably just as importantly, he is a people person and a lot of fun. His hospitality is superlative. He knows the experience is once-in-a-lifetime for the guest and he worked hard the whole trip to make it special for us. He kept us informed about the schedule, made sure we were comfortable, and had excellent knowledge to share with us. We listened to fun music on the long drives, we chatted about our respective cultures. He took as many photos as we wanted and let us set the pace of all our stops. The accommodations booked at the Palacio del Sal and the Tayka El Desierto were good and suited us well. The food in each was good. The food that we ate while traveling was also amazing. Loved the picnic in the salt flat and our lunches while traveling were fresh and home cooked. They accommodated our dietary needs. Annoyingly, they want a cash payment for the tour when you arrive but don't tell you that when booking. Since it's not possible to make such large withdrawals from an ATM, I paid a fee to use a credit card.

        Amazing experience, highly recommended!
        We did the 3D/2N tour end of October which was excellent and which we can definitely recommend! Rimber was a great tourguide and driver and had amazing foto skills and creative picture ideas! We always felt safe in the car! He spoke very clearly so it was easy to understand his Spanish. The food was enough and fine and the accommodation good (the first night a really nice salt hotel, the second night it was more basic but totally fine). All in all good value for money! If there could be one optimisation: The third day is quite rushed if you want to cross the border to San Pedro de Atacama but that is with all agencies because all buses go at 9.30 to San Pedro de Atacama. A bus organised 1 hour later at the border would be quite an improvement for those going to Chile because one has more time that day at the various stops.

        Book confidely with Transandino
        Loved my tour with Rimber. We had an amazing and diverse group, which the agency planned carefully to maximize the group dynamic. We visited all the highlights in Salar de Uyuni and the Altiplano. I opted for the private accomodation and I highly recommend it. The guide was happy the whole trip and made it a fun and exciting trip.

        Fun trip with really nice guide. Breakfasts and lunches were really good, dinner mostly consisted out of fat and salt. Would still recommend though!

        Tour was great! The guide was super nice and could tell a lot of information. Only point of improvement could be the dinner. The dinner in both hostels was not nice and really really salt. Breakfast and lunch where great! Prepare for the cold and enjoy.

        Rimber was the best guide I had at my 4th visit in that lake and the desert. He was nice and supportive. Ask for him when you are going to visit this extraordinary experience.

        Sunset + Starlights is a Must!
        I went to the Sunset + Starlights tour. They picked me up from the hotel at 4:30pm and we went straight to the salt lake at the Salt Flats. Marco (our driver and guide) was Amazing! He was very friendly and he made us a photoshoot with the mirror effect and another photoshoot with the stars and milky way. The pictures are AMAZING! Marco is a professional doing his job. I had a great experience!! I definitely recommend this agency and this tour! Totally worth it! P.S. Make sure to follow the agency’s guidelines: (Wear 2 pairs of thick warm socks, heavy jacket, warm gloves, sunglasses and take sunscreen)

        Great trip, would recommend and use again
        Great tour, our guide Rimber was a safe driver, told us all about the areas we were visiting, kept us up to date with what was happening throughout the day, perfect guide for our tour of the Salt Flats. Everything we booked the company delivered, would recommend and use again :) When we visited (June) it was very cold, but the sleeping bags and blankets provided meant a good night sleep both nights. Food provided was good, but bring your own snacks or buy along the way, as they don't provide these.

      We really had a great experience in Uyuni, with TransAndino Tours. Actually it was one of the best tours I did since I started traveling in Latin America 3 months ago! Our driver and guide José was excellent (he managed to deal with some little issues with creativity, and always keeping a calm and positive attitude), we had good food and everything went very well. And the Salar was really amazing! But also all the other thinks we saw during the trip, like the amazing geysers... I will keep a unique memory of this three days tour, which was really worth it. I can only recommend it!

      This is an amazing tour. Mario, our driver/guide, is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He organised this tour perfectly, including the excellent lunch in a quiet spot in the middle of the Salar and the drinks at sunset. He also had many ideas for pictures, including several amazing ones. Highly recommended!

      Thanks to my guide Mario. He is friendly and helpful and full of humor. In the two day private tour, we visit the town, museum, the cactus island, the volcano and of course spent a lot of time on the salt lake. I am so lucky that I enjoyed everything: dry salt lake, mirror salt lake with water, the sunset, the night full of stars. Totally enjoyed the trip and is already considering come back again.

      非常推荐Mario司导!他风趣幽默,很耐心并非常认真仔细,带我参观了所有的美景。在旱季驱车一小时带我看到了盐湖最后一块天空之镜并陪我在夜晚欣赏银河和星空。此外,本行程还有特色的盐湖里的午餐野餐。非常棒的导游,非常棒的行程!

      This was a fantastic tour - our tour guide Mario was awesome. He was very welcoming and took the entire day to show us all of the great spots around the salt flats. Pickup was seamless, Mario picked us up directly from the UYU airport. We spent the entire day (about 8:30a - 7:30p) until he dropped us off at the hotel (recommend Luna Salada Hotel de Sal). For lunch, he took us to a very remote area of the salt flats and set up a beautiful table with chicken, steak, steamed veggies, fresh veggies and quinoa. No one else was around and you could literally hear a pin drop - lunch with the salt flats all around. I don't think many of the other tours provide lunch this type of way. Mario really went out of his way to make the entire trip special. Even brought this own props to take some funny photos - he definitely has done this before, they turned out great. The salt flats are a must see while in Bolivia and cannot recommend this tour company and Mario enough. Thank you for a special day!

      I was in Uyuni for 3 days and during those 3 days we were guided by guides Mario, Marco and Alex. They didn't let us miss anything. We visited the Salar on the first day with Mario finding it a fantastic spot and with a fantastic sunset and dinner with wine and cheese at the end. On the second day, the guide was Marco and we took a 4x4 tour visiting several distant points including a sauna and hot springs and lunch was served next to a mud farm. On the third day we were lucky enough to have Alex as a guide and photographer, we started the tour after 7:30 pm with photos showing the Orion constellation reflected in the mirror of the Salar waters. I really recommend it to all my friends who are planning to visit Salar de Uyuni!
