Great good, great accomodation, awesome guide Markus Bendt. He made the trip unforgettable and very humorous. Took great pictures and sent them per email after the tour. Overall good experience with redplanet although the woman at office could have been slightly friendlier.

The guide and driver were excellent on this one day tour, which incorporated everything you need to see for a whistle stop tour of the salt flats. We had a really informative guide that spoke excellent English and the lunch that was served was fantastic....More

Good day fellow traveller, I plan to travel to Uyuni on 20 december 2017 , just want to know can we see the reflection on the salt flats? Is this month a rainy season? Please advise.

I called and spoke with a couple of companies and most suggested arriving a day or two before to "acclimate" to the altitude. Do most people arrive beforehand to acclimate or are you guys just showing up and starting the tour? Thanks!

Red Planet are an awesome tour company, do yourself a favour and do the 3 day tour. You cant possible do it in 1 day.....way to far.
