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.

The formations and nature I saw on this tour is unlike anything else I’ve seen in the world. The beauty of Uyuni is unmatched. The tour was well organized and I felt safe and informed the entire time as a solo traveler.
