A real highlight of our trip to South America. Amazing to explore the changing landscape from the Uyuni Salt Flats to the desert in San Pedro. We went with Liroy from Salty Desert and he made the tour really fun and memorable. He had loads of information which he explained clearly and made sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend.

Amazing!

The landscape are just wonderful. It’s surreal. I totally recommend to do this trip. Just an issue with one of the accommodation, as one bed was missing and some people had to share a bed and the guide was not helpful and was actually careless and nonchalant. Also we had to pay for the sleeping bags though it was actually included with the local agency. But the local agency, Blueline, refunded us at the end after we mentioned this issue. Finally, the others in the group payed much less, by going directly directly to the agency in Uyuni. But the landscapes are totally worth it!!!
