North of Argentina,Chile & Uyuni Salt Flats Tour – 17 Days

"We just returned from a 3week South America trip. It was great.
We searched on internet and learned about Say Hueque. We decided to travel with you because the comments over the 6day trip Attacama-Uyuni were really good.
I would say our highlight were the good guides who gave lots of information. We only stayed in e one hotel, the Don Tomas hotel in San Pedro.
We had short excursions and one large: the three day 4wd to Uyuni. The El Tunio exursions was great. Early to get up but worth it. The 4wd tour was awesome with highlights and depths (the overnight stay in the refugee: ‘basic’ accommodation was an understatement). Although an experience, it took many hours to recover from it.
I forgot the name of the guide to the El Tunio geysers – he was awesome (I believe he is an San Pedro artist). He gave lots of information, in Spanish and English and full of humor

San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni - 3 Day Tour

Our trip with these guys was great. Our driver Johnny took great car of the vehicle making sure the tyres were always pumped up and the windows always clean. The food was good, especially the lunches. Had better food than some other tours staying in the same place in the evenings. Would totally recommend. In fact we did and some friends just had a great trip with them.
The only reason for 4 rather than 5 is that the operator said that they would reserve bus tickets for us with a company we asked for. However when we got to Uyuni we found that they hadn’t and they were sold out. Johnny took us around to bus companies though until we found some tickets. So worked out in the end.

San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni - 3 Day Tour

We had an amazing 3D2N tour! Remy was our driver and we were really impressed with how well he looked after us after all the horror stories you hear Remy was very professional and a safe driver. We were told before we went on the tour that they did not have an English speaking guide but luckily one of the girls in our car spoke Spanish. However Remy spoke slowly and clearly and repeated himself and it was surprising how much we could understand. Remy is so knowledgeable and very patient he made sure we saw as much as possible and that we were all ok as well as checking the car and it’s tyres at every stop. The food was great and we had no hidden charges. Our second night in the Salt Hotel was great with hot showers. The first night although there was hot showers very few people used them as it was so windy and freezing in the hostel. The only negative thing I can think of is that when we booked Eric had told us sleeping bags were included but when we arrived at the first hostel there weren’t enough. Once we arrived in Uyuni Remy took us to get bus tickets and also the ATM and told us to call him if we had any problems. I would definitely recommend requesting Remy as your driver if you can!

San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni - 3 Day Tour

After all the horror stories I’ve heard of the San Pedro to Uyuni tour, I was wary of booking one. But my hostel I was staying at recommended this one and assured they offered a safe service, so I opted for it, and I’m glad I did! The tour with [the operator] was extremely safe (which was my main concern), the drivers were professional and drove appropriately. Although they seemed a bit over worked and tired on the first day (they had to be up at 5am!) they managed to do the whole trip in a very safe manner! The trucks were also good, only had a small minor flat tire which was quickly fixed!
The first night accommodation is COLD! Just like everywhere in the desert, bring many warm clothes and maybe a sleeping bag and you’ll be fine! You also don’t sleep above 4000m of altitude which is a good thing! The second night was in a Salt hotel and it was amazing! Warm and cozy, and wow what a place to look at the stars! (Again bring warm clothes for star gazing!)
The food was really good, and plenty, always had enough for the big group of hungry travellers we were!
If you (or someone in your group) speaks Spanish, it will help a lot! The drivers had a lot to say about the places were we visiting but only spoke Spanish! So if you speak Spanish a little bit, you’ll get a driver AND a guide!!
Overall, I’m happy I did it with [the operator], the price was VERY cheap for the quality of the food and accommodation that you get! If I were to do it again, I would chose [this operator]

San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni - 3 Day Tour

Had a great 3D2N trip to Uyuni. Everything went really well.
Great driver Paulo, safe driving
Super guide Giovanni who was fun and great company. Spoke good English and took good care of us. Enjoyed very much our dinner conversations.
Great group
Even though there were 25 land cruisers with tourists leaving the Chile/Bolivia border, we were often on our own or with only 1-2 other groups. Also because we were a bit faster than others.
Decent food
Accommodation was better than expected
Good price, though of course that depends on how you book / bargain
A negative was that the first night was spent at 4200m whereas the manager in San Pedro had promised a stay at 3500m. In the end this was not a big problem but why give this promise? So if some aspect of the trip is important to you, I would recommend to get it in writing *and* confirm it with the guide at the border.
But in any case, I would highly recommend [the operator] travel based on this experience
