My husband and I did a one day tour with Salty Tours. We were a little nervous at first given we didn't know who was going to be in our car, but not only did we get a great group of people, but Fidel our tour guide was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and brought us to the PERFECT spot for sunset mirror reflection photos, only a couple of other cars were in the vicinity, it was as if it was the "secret" location, ha. He was uber friendly and you could tell he wanted us to really enjoy our experience. Thanks for making this unforgettable!

Nous avons booké un tour de trois jours avec l’agence Salty Desert.
Nous avons passé trois jours merveilleux, nous n’avons jamais vu quelque chose d’aussi beau.
Notre guide Peter était top. Il ne parlait qu’espagnol mais voulait absolument apprendre l’anglais.
Professeur de musique, il nous a même fait un mini concert le deuxième soir à l’hostel. Disponible, drôle, bon connaisseur, bon conducteur... on vous le recommande fortement !
Pour résumer trois jours de folie dans el Salar et le reste du désert. Une agence top à recommander!

A must do!
We booked a 3 day tour (Salar and South Lipez) with Salty Desert agency.
We spent three amazing days, landscapes were breathtaking and so diversified!
Our guide Peter was incredible as well. He only spoke spanish but was extremely friendly and so keen to engage with us and to speak as much English as he could when he could. His explanations throughout our journey and his willingness to share/ explain Bolivan culture and traditions were also fascinating.
Being a music teacher he even gifted us with a mini concert on the second night. He also shared some of his music and let us introduce him to our music too. Funny, professional, available, knowledgable and extremely good driver, we would highly recommend him for your upcoming tour!
Salty desert has also been a very pleasant to deal with. The woman taking bookings at the agency is adorable and useful. The cars were perfect (comfortable, not too old and very clean), the food was very good and accomodations were traditional and of good quality. All this for a price at the lower end of what you can find in Uyuni.

An overall fabulous experience,

Enjoy your trip!!!

3 days just isn't enough! I totally recommend it.. It's amazing.. Hard to describe in words... Go for it and ask for drivers Peter or Freddie.. These guys are great and went way beyond to meet our expectations...
The 3 day tour is breath-taking and Peter and Freddie from Salty Desert Aventours make the trip perfect. Worth every penny!!!

My friend and I did the 3 day tour that started with the salt flats, went to the red lagoon, and thermal baths. Our group was six girls total. Our guide was Arnaldo. He didn't speak English well, but tried his best to communicate with us. My only complaint is that the hostel we stayed at the second night was pretty rough. The lights went out, there was no hot water, and our door didn't lock. Otherwise, the tour was very well done. Organized, ran on time, food was good, and no car troubles.

This was one of the best tours I have taken. Salty Desert is a very professional tour company, with excellent guides. Everything went smoothly and as planned. We visited amazing places and the accommodation and food were excellent and the price was right. The second night we stayed by the hot springs and we got to bath and star-gaze. It was surreal staying there immersed in the hot springs and looking at the zillions of stars above....I saw a total of 4 shooting stars in an hour! I highly recommend this agency!
