My partner and I had the best 3-day Uyuni Salt Flats tour with Andes Salt Expedition.
Raquel Gris, our tour guide, was just amazing, caring and knowledgeable. She put us at ease, explained each day's itinerary, warned us of clothes to wear, imparted facts and figures relating to Bolivian flora, fauna and government.
Gregorio, our driver, did a sterling job keeping us on the road.
All in all, a terrific experience.
Take extreme-harsh winter clothes with you!

We had the tour of two Days and 1 night. I really suggest it especially if you have the chance to sleep in one of the Salt Hostal at the edges of the desert. Our guide Angel was nice and gave us many interesting insigths.. He is a great photographer as well! :)

Incredible experience! We had an English speaking guide (Brian) who was very knowledgeable and friendly. We did the one day trip and had a great time from start to finish. Would highly recommend!

Sal 3 day trip with Andes expeditions

In order to help persons interested in the 3 day trip, you may short and detailed review below before you book.

Key points (short review):

➕ Great scenery
➖ Guide very knowledgeable but ruined a large part of the trip
➖ Poor food
➖ Tight and exhausting schedule - early wake up’s (e.g., 4am)
➖ No mirror effect
➖ Dust penetrated inside the car
➖ Freezing to death temperatures (including hotels)
Fact: you will reach up to 5km altitude

* I would prefer a single trip to Uyuni and another trip to see the stars. In my opinion, lakes are very nice but the climate is unfriendly (windy and cold even with no clouds) and overall, the fatigue to reach this part outweighs the beauty of the scenery.

Detailed review:

Scenery
Sal de Uyuni is amazing! Try to brainstorm some ideas for photos before coming here!

Guide
The guide was very knowledgeable about everything regarding the animals and nature. However for some reason he was fixated to the fact that we would not have private rooms. Although we clarified that with Andes, he kept ruining our trip’s expectations by saying “ok we will see”. In the first hotel we had private room with bathroom. The water was not too hot. Regarding the second day he told us that we will sleep 6 in a room, with no running water, no electricity. When we arrived in the hostel we had our private room, with bathroom, hot water and electricity till 10pm. All people in the group spent our whole day on how to manage the fact we wouldn’t have a hot shower and remaining dirty for two days. Even though this was a good opportunity to practice mindfulness moments and not worry about the future, this was completely unnecessary. Every time we asked him something that he didn’t want to answer (not about nature, he was very knowledgeable on this topic) he responded with irrelevant sentences. We had to ask him three times in a row why he thinks that we would have shared rooms to give us a (reasonable for him) answer. So this idiotic behavior ruined our mood since we believed that the agency fooled us and gave us shared rooms. I hope that this review would be brought to the agency’s attention and talk to this guy.

Poor food
The food was simple but unhealthy, whites and coca colas. Only some cooked vegetables were offered. All breakfasts were awful: scrambled eggs not very well cooked. Chicken in the meals was uncooked.
Bring your food (eg nuts) to have an alternative.
Also raw vegetables were offered which I avoid due to past gastroenteritis that I add in the area.
The only exception was some tasty soups!

Schedule
It is not communicated beforehand that last day you wake up at 4am. Don’t expect to have a proper rest in this trip.

No Mirror effect
The guide told us that in April there is no water so as to admire the mirror effect, small pods existed but the guide ignored our request to have a stop.
Additionally two days later as we flew from Uyuni to La Paz, we saw water in salar de Uyuni. I will upload the relevant evidence.

Dust penetrated inside the car
The vehicles are quite uncomfortable inside and dust came inside multiple times. I had to wear a face mask at all times while the car was moving.

Freezing to death temperatures
The places we visited were very cold. When we asked if we needed a sleeping bag, the told us it is not necessary. Bring WARM clothes and many layers, you will freeze to death.

We did the 3 day/2 night tour and it was great. Our guide Henry was always very attentive. Not only was he able to answer all of our questions, but he also proved to be an excellent photographer. Each day of the tour was unique and wonderful, the food and hotels were great. We can recommend the tour with Henry in every aspect. :)

This was an amazing, unforgettable experience. I did the 3 day tour with a mixed group of travellers and our guide, Bejmar. It was everything we wanted it to be and more. Our guide went above and beyond to take care of us, make sure we were comfortable and educate us on every destination. The landscapes and history in Bolivia are out of this world. Must do bucket list trip

Raquel was our guide and Goyo was our driver.
They really made this experience a special one!
Raquel kept telling us to feel like we are family and she really did make us feel like one! From feeding us, to telling us stories, to all the information she shared with us passionately about her country, to all the photos and videos she took! Is there anything this woman can’t do?
I went on this tour for my birthday trip and she came to me in the morning with a big hug and sang happy birthday in Spanish to me! This truly was an unforgettable experience!

it was a fantastic experience. we took the medium package and slept all 2 days in a private room with a private bathroom and hot water. the food was good every day and we even had a picnic watching the sunset on the first day. our driver (Angél) was very attentive and even a great DJ on a relaxing day. our Guide, Dennis, was extremely competent, attentive and took excellent photos and videos. It seems to me that the photographs and videos he takes are a plus on the trip. all free, but all the equipment belongs to him. If you can choose, choose Dennis. We did the transfer to go to SAN Pedro de Atacama afterwards and everything went very smoothly. I highly recommend the agency
