I really enjoyed 3d tour to Uyuni.
I think Lithum Adventura is best company in San Pedro. They're very reliable. They have good car and serve nice food.
And our guide Eloy Perez was very nice. He has good driving skill and explanation was very specific.
I recommend Lithium Adventura and thanks to Eloy Perez!!

아타카마에 투어사가 정말 많은데 리튬 추천해요!!
저희 가이드는 Eloy Perez였는데 영어는 잘못해도 부탁하면 들어주려고 노력하고 정말 친절합니다!!

It was my first time in chile and bolivia and lithium aventura made my experience much better. The tour was great and the people we met during the 3day trip from san pedro to uyuni was great. Especially, the driver and the tour guide named Eloy Perez was really really great and helped us really kindly. Furthermore, he was a great driver! When you come to chile and bolivia with lithium aventura and meet Eloy Perez!
리튬 2박3일 투어 아타카마에서 우유니까지 매우 훌륭했습니다. 특히 투어 가이드 eloy perez가 매우 친절하게 설명해주고 맛있는 식사를 준비해주어 감사했습니다. 아타카마와 우유니에 처음오면 이 투어를 적극 추천합니다.

Ok so I started a 3 day Salt Flats tour from San Pedro de Atacama on Monday 11th June. We were due to be picked up at 4am but the minibus arrived at 4.40. Our driver only spoke Spanish but apparently this is common so we were fine with it. About 2.5 hours into our drive to the Chilean- Bolivian border our driver was driving way too fast on the icy mountain roads and we skidded off road and the car flipped. I ended up breaking my wrist in the accident and it took a further 9 hours for the company to arrange to get me to a hospital in Uyuni. In fairness the company paid for all my medical expenses in Uyuni and refunded us for our tour in full (as you’d expect). 4 tourists were ok to carry on the tour and the original driver took them onwards but this driver should NOT be allowed to drive at all.

Long story short - not a safe tour company that resulted in me breaking my wrist and being forced the cancel the last 2 months of my South American trip.
10/10 do not recommend

Hi. The day before yesterday we came back from our Uyuni tour. It was amazingly great.

Our driver was Baymer. Or Beemer: don't know how to say this. It was a driver NOT a guide this is not what we asked for at the Lithium office. They assured us we were getting a guide and not just a driver.
He was quiet most of the time. Didn't say much. Stopped at the stops. "Here are rocks. You have 10 minutes for pictures. Vamos." is what he said for example.

On the last day he was more happy. But we found out that was because he was drinking. Before and while the tour. We could smell the alcohol.

He was also drinking beer with another guide on the salt flats and just throwing the can of beer on the flats. Where is the respect for nature?
This felt very unsafe: in a car with someone who is under the influence of alcohol. What can we do?

Besides that it was great: but that's mostly the nature speaking for itself. It's a beautiful little peace of earth. Exceptional.
But our 'guide' didn't explain anything really. We don't even know why the salt flats are there for example.

He told us this was the first time working for Lithium. Lithium told us otherwise: only people were working for the company with many many years of experience with the company.
Accomodation, food and the other things were good! Sure! Our driver was taking good care of us during breakfast/lunch/dinner.

So we are happy and disappointed at the same time.

Lithium insisted/asked several times to write a review. Here it is.

We realize you'll have to be lucky with your guide. Clearly we weren't. The things we were afraid for happened, eventough Lithium told us not to worry: you will get an English speaking guide. Not just a driver.

We took the 3 day/ 2 night tour from San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni and had the best time. There were two 4x4 cars that travelled together, with our guides: Carlos and Cesar. The guides were incredible: friendly, knowledgeable, patient. They just seemed to be very lovely people, despite a mishap or two with the cars - so shouts out to you two!

The trip itself is breathtaking, each destination was mind-blowing and the hostels were perfect. The breakfast, lunch and dinner was also surprisingly nice and they catered really well for two vegan travellers we were with.

I don’t think that reviews for this trip should give much away to the experience you’ll have - but I recommend this company for sure!

Thank Christie M
