Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booking process was straightforward: I booked and paid a deposit on the website and paid the rest in cash in Uyuni. We were in contact via e-mail and WhatsApp and it went well, but it is good I speak some Spanish. Other people in my group did not have a smooth experience, possibly because of the language barrier.

Our guide, Simi, was not really a guide. He was more like a driver who also told you a bit about the places. His English was limited, so a few people in the group were not very happy. But he was friendly and drove safely. The car was also in very good condition. However, I noticed other groups were getting much more detailed descriptions of the places. I also suspect they paid more though.

The accommodations were very good, though the water heater in the last accommodation did not function. Food was decent throughout the trip (as much as it can be in isolated places like the ones we visited).

Overall, I enjoyed the trip and would recommend the company, but they have to improve a few things. It was still worth it for the price (we paid $150 each).

We have just come back from our trip to South America and this tour was by far the highlight of the holiday! It was so well organised and everyone was so accommodating and helpful the entire trip. The daily itinerary was clearly explained to us so we knew exactly what we would be doing and when. Our tour guides Jose and Wilder allowed us to take as much time as we needed to explore all the sites, and also took loads of photos for us, answered all of our questions and also explained lots of the history and facts about the different places we visited. They couldn’t have been kinder and more helpful, especially when most of our group got food poisoning and had to extend the trip by a day as they were unable to travel. The hostel owners were also incredibly kind - we have a few different dietary requirements (nuts and gluten) and they always made sure to accommodate for everyone. The sites you see on this trip are just incredible and having a friendly team show you around makes the experience even more amazing. I would 100% recommended this tour group, so much so that I’m planning on going back in the future to repeat it!

The Salar de Uyuni is an impressive place for trekking in Bolivia. If you are planning a trip to the Salar de Uyuni, make sure you don't miss these incredible activities: Salt Flat Walks: Walking on the salt surface is a unique experience that you cannot stop doing. You will see how the sunlight reflects on the salt crystals, creating a landscape that seems taken from another world. I was really satisfied with having visited the Salar de Uyuni for the second time. We had a lot of fun, many photos and the sunset was the most beautiful picturesque.

We booked our 4 days / 3 nights Uyuni tour from San Pedro to Uyuni with Expediciones Estrella Del Sur (over the Howlanders website). The tour was very well organised, the program was full of great activities and everything was on time. The food was also great and they took into consideration my vegetarian preferences. I would highly recommend this tour.

We had an incredible experience doing the 4 days/ 3 nights Salar de Uyuni tour thanks to Estrella del Sur and our driver Crispin. From the beginning on, it felt right to book the tour with this agency as they explained the tour to us in detail. We always felt save, enjoyed the stays in the hotels which are really nice and saw incredible landscapes. The food was basic but good. We highly recommend to choose the agency estrella del sur and ask for Crispin as driver :-)

Overall, the tour was great. I booked a tour to Uyuni from San Pedro de Atacama. The other 5 people who went on tour with me were super nice so that added a bonus to the experience. Our guide, Ronald, was great. Ronald was always taking care of us and told us a little bit of each place we went. Also, he made sure to carry dressings such as ketchup and mayonnaise for our food and he always provided water and coca-cola for us. Ronald is an experience driver and tour guide in Bolivia with more than 10 years of experience. He went far above than we expected taking the best videos and photos we could have think of. I felt completely safe with him driving us around.

The food was healthy and delicious during the trip. The second day we even had wine during dinner!

The only downsize of my trip was that when staying in the hotel from the agency (Tambo Loma) during the second night, they offered a private ensuite bedroom for each of us but didn't gave us the keys to the beds. I'm not sure if they didn't know that giving you a key of your bedroom is a must. Either way, when I asked for my bedroom's key, they gave me the wrong one so I was locked outside my bedroom and it was awful because I had all my belongings inside. For that reason, I asked for help and a new key but they didn't have one. I had to wait for several hours without an answer and when it was getting late, I decided to ask again. They didn't have an answer and they wouldn't solve my problem since the person in charge was not currently in the hotel. That person was not able to get to the hotel neither so I had no place to sleep, I didn't have my belongings and no apparent solution. The only way we think of was to force our way into the room, and they were okay with that but they didn't offer help so a friend broke the door handle and we could enter to retrieve my things. Then, the current hotel employee gave me another room but, in this one, the bathroom didn't have access to water. So again, I had to move. Thankfully, one of my fellow travellers offered to share her bedroom and double bed with me. The following day we checked out at 5:30 am because we had to go to Incahuasi Island to see the sunrise. That way, no one apologized to me or even cared if I have had a good sleep.

we did the 3 day tour to uyuni with our driver, Flavio, who was an awesome company for the trip and prepared the best meals. I highly recommend this company for their food, service, and places you visit with them!

if you do the tour in winter (may-August), you really need to be aware of the cold, so take a lot of warm clothing with you. also don't forget to buy some bolivianos in San Pedro before starting the tour!

We did the 3D/2N circuit with Estrella Del Sur in January. We had a great time and we had a lot of fun.
We were very lucky to see the mirror effect because it rained the previous days of our trip.
The road is long until the lagunas but it is really worth it to admire the beautiful mountains, the desert, the lagunas, the volcanoes....
Giovanni our driver and guide was great and took the best pictures.
I really recommend this agency.
