The tour itself is super cool. Yes, it is a whirlwind, you are constantly on the go, moving from one place to another and you get to see only a small portion of the local wonders but if you are time constrained – this is a great way to see many places in a short time. The salt flats were probably my favourite...
The physical challenge is moderate but the high altitudes and dry/dusty/salty air could present challenges.
A word of caution regarding booking it with Bamba Experience: be ready for screw-ups. I was not picked up in an airport in the middle of the night contrarily to the confirmed plan, twice not picked up for a local activity.
I managed to arrange for the alternatives myself (the phone number and the online contacts they provide for *urgent* contacts are of no use – all you get is a voicemail and/or reply many hours later when it would be too late anyways as there is no slack in the schedule). Bamba reimbursed me for the extra expenses I incurred in some of these cases but not in all.
The instructions Bamba provided were incomplete; they have not mentioned some important details that would have put me in trouble if it weren't for my fellow travellers who booked same activities through other agencies (and these agencies specifically instructed them what to prepare).

We did a 18 day tour through Belize/Mexico and Guatemala. Heaps of mistakes on the vouchers. ( wrong times, prices, confirmation numbers and durations) No availability on 1 of the busses so we had to arrange our own transport. And the big suprise in the end they booked us on a transfer from Palenque to Guatemala which nearly costs our lives.

We were involved in a bus accident and Bamba did simply nothing. We emailed a couple of questions and there was no serieus answer you will expect from a company like this.

After more than a week and a 3 page letter I got their attention and they offered a refund. Good to receive a little refund of the huge amount we paid for a ruined holiday... think twice to book

Bamba is just the best way to discover a country individually. While not worrying about the stress of buying your next bus/plane ticket or trip you can just relax and enjoy those unforgettable moments of travelling, which will stay in your mind forever.

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you.

Excellent travel company. There were only 4 ladies traveling however, throughout the trip, we felt very safe and in good hands. Excellent accommodation, vehicles, sightseeing, guides and their followup care. The driver was very patient with our none ending shopping request. Would recommend to all
