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

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!
