      I have dreamed about visiting for so long when the opportunity presented its self it was like Yes! Let's do this. I was traveling with my teenage daughter so I did lots of research online. Everything kept pointing Red Planet. I booked on line a month in advance and hoped for the best. When we arrived at Uyuni. We found Red Planet and they we ready for us. There was a group of 12 of us and put into 2 cars and off we went. The 1st day was the salt flats which was the most amazing. We traveled exactly as the tour said we would. We had 2 great drivers Leonardo and Rolo who helped us with everything. The roads are very bumpy and rocky we got 2 flat tires along the way which I am surprised we didnt get more. We saw so much of Bolivia with the Alpacas, flamingos, lagoons, the hot thermal springs (heavenly) and vistas that pictures can't do justice for. It is a rugged trip, you are filthy by the time return but full of fantastic memories. The group we traveled with was also super fun. It was a trip of a lifetime.

      This tour shows off Bolivian salt flats, dessert, lakes and high country at its grandest. It is one of the most spectacular corners of the earth. We went with Red Planet tours and our guide Hector made this a memorable trip. Terrific drivers too. Now this is not a 5 star luxury tour, rather an adventure with very basic accomodation. This adds to the wonderful experience rather than distracts. The food prepared over the 2 nights and days was wholesome, reflected local food and was completely adequate unless you have severe dietary issues. All round a tour to do NOW before mainstream travelers get on to it and spoil it with greate numbers.

        Calificación General: 10/10
