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.

    Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is a mesmerizing wonder that surpasses all expectations. Despite the challenges of reaching it, the surreal landscape and endless salt flats make every obstacle worth it. Standing amidst this natural marvel is an unforgettable experience that will leave you in awe of the beauty of our world.

    In the middle of the truly amazing, bucket list, salar (salt flat) it's an interesting sight in itself, but your ticket allows you to hike about 1km on a defined, one-way trail up and around the island (and visit the washroom -- we had to show our ticket to get in!) The added height gives great views across the salar (where the brightness reflected off the salt confused my camera's light metering) with the huge cacti in the foreground. A surprising number of birds also seem to call the island home.

    Everyone on a tour also seems to have lunch here, hopefully at one of the shaded tables, or perhaps bringing their own table, chairs and shade.

    These are really sweet geysers.

    If you’ve been to Iceland or New Zealand you won’t be wowed but still worth a visit and the salt flats around them are amazing.

    Its a large area lake besides the eco hotel Los Flamencos. Its little bit stinky but the view is overwhelming. The flamingos are so social that even you go near them they don’t go away. Any one can take selfie with them also. Here i took some awesome pictures of them. I like this lake to my heart.

    Large lake fed by thermal waters. Lots of birds around and llamas and vacunas. Waters are said to have medicinal properties.

    This mountain dominates the scenery as you cross the salt flats-uniformly flat as far as the eye can see with no vegetation or animals. Our tour took us close enough to it to appreciate the change in scenery, landscape and vegetation with crops and animals. A circle of volcanoes surrounds the salt desert and I believe we got to the middle[, Incahuasi island with small community and shop and rest rooms. We had a splendid first class picnic lunch on the salt, thankfully protected from the sun by a shade. Unforgettable.

    Driving on tracks(not really roads) with an experienced guide and two spare tires is an extraordinary experience. Beautify and animal life abound if you look. One small animal looks like a cross between a squirrel and a rabbit. Another like a small orstrch. Vicuñas here iand there in packs of three to five. And there is quiet,

    Uyuni Salt Tour is a must. There are so many stunning nature spectacles in that area and Andes Salt Expeditions are a great company to do this.
    I really enjoyed the guide, who was sympathetic, informative and a real pro when it comes to fotos and videos that we did. He even did a quiz with us on the last night. Thanks Eduardo for your support!

    Fantastic one day salt flat tour with Miguel.

    He was a very safe driver, informative and an incredible photographer.

    As long as your don't want high luxury (which I'm not sure you can get on a group tour) I can't reccomend this tour enough. Was exactly as described and one of the best things I've ever done.

    They organized us a lst minute sunrise tour at Uyuni salt flat. They were extremely quick to reply on Whatsapp even though I texted them with our last minute request after 9 pm... Our guide/driver Alejandro was a great photographer as well. He made sure to accomodate all of our photo requests. He knew the best spots and ways of taking photos and videos. Absolutely worth every penny!

    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 trip was really well-planned. The food, places we stayed, and sights we saw were amazing. Dilmer and Christian were awesome, super flexible, and made sure we had a good time. I'll totally recommend this agency to anyone looking for an awesome time in Salar.

    José was our guide and gave us the most spectacular experience. He constantly took us to places where there were less people, was really knowledgeable about the area and was just a hilarious heartwarming guy.

    The places we stayed in were all brilliant, fairly basic but you’re in the middle of nowhere!!! José made this trip for us, couldn’t recommend highly enough
