The tour of the flats was in incredible. Israel and Coco (tour guide and driver) were not only excellent, but also a lot of fun! I highly recommend this tour. Although one down side, because of covid, flights were limited and I was only able to fly one way. The way back to La Paz was provided by a private driver, six hours back to the city. The day was a bit ridiculously long and given the fact the tour was quite expensive, I imagine most of that cost is the convenience of flying down and back, no discount was provided to me after asking. That was the only disappointing part of this tour experience. Again, tour itself was fantastic!

Highlight of my South America trip! I only had 2 days in La Paz and was not sure if it would be worth the effort to fly one day to Uyuni, but I am very glad that I decided to do it. This was one of the best days of my 4 week trip! The organization went smoothly, Guide Roger and drivers were extremely friendly and have read every wish from my eyes. We had a wonderful picnic in the middle of the salt desert and enjoyed the sunset in the evening with a musical interlude by Roger. I highly recommend the tour!
