Local food for dinner instead of pizza eg. soup or cassuela. 4x4 comfortable and driver sensibly. Lllam BBQ lovely. Thank you for all you efforte. Camille & Jon

Very well organised, but going guide needs to work on his English. Terrence.

Had a really good time - very organised enthusiastic guides. Fresh frut at breakfast would have been good. Apart from that Margarita is a great cook!!. Nic

Potosi mine tour was fantastic the trip to the hot spring was overpried considering it only involved gethng a left there as was the same price as the mine tour. Llama BBQ was excellent I would have preferred local food inshead of pizza for dinner haved the sethng of the salt hotel. Tracey

Trip to mines was excelent and tour guide really informative and interesting sal flats also experience standing in salt lake. Again guides helpful + informative, food really good.

The tour was amazing and the food was good especially the barbecue lunch on the second day the hotel was very unusual and the people were really friendly & helpful. Rosheena

Los tours al Salar de Uyuni con Braulio son excelentes, los pasajeros siempre estan contentos con el tour (guias, 4x4, comida hotel de sal de Atulcha). Los tours son bien organizados, puntuales y de buena calidad, Margarita cocina delicioso.Carmen Juarez (Tour leader Tucan Travel)

We just wanted to thank you and your team for the most amazing tour of the Salar. Having spoken to others who were on similar trips, we know how lucky we are. You looked after us from the moment we were collected to the minute you dropped us off. The food was superb and the English speaking guide fantastic. Bernice, the cook, was delightful and a joy to be with. And, the llama barbecue was delicious!
We loved every minute of it, it is truly the best thing we have done on our whole round the world trip so far, and we have covered over 23,000 miles to date!!
Hope you and Hobbi enjoy the photos attached. If you use them for marketing purposes, can I ask that you credit us? [(c) KSrtw.com]
