    A visit to the Salar de Uyuni is an unforgettable and extremely worthwhile experience, regardless of who takes you there, but it is important to be aware of a few things regarding this particular tour. First, if you stay at one of the premier hotels, such as the Palacio de Sal or Cristana Samaña, your tour will say it begins at 10:30 am, but the earliest you will be picked up is 12:00 pm. This tour starts at the train graveyard, which is at the far end of the Salar, and you will simply miss that part of the tour. For us, it was no big loss, but if that site is important to you, take note. Second, the tour guide we had, while very sweet and competent about taking us to the other parts of the Salar we did want to visit, did not speak a word of English. We speak Spanish, so it was not an obstacle, but if you don't, it could be quite challenging. In spite of our late start, we had an extraordinary day, and we were able to see both the Salar as a completely dry salt flat and a huge part of the Salar at sunset that was still wet and mirror-like, so we had the best of both worlds. Our guide had promised us this, and he absolutely delivered, so if you'd like to experience both, planning a visit during the last week of April, which is right on the cusp of the wet and dry seasons, may be key. The Salar is like no place you've ever experienced, and I HIGHLY recommend it! You will leave with incredible memories and the best photos you've ever taken!

    It's amazing tour in Uyuni salt lake. The views of Uyuni salt lake are beyond description, but Driver is also very excellent guider. So I was pleased with many photes that he was taking. Driver is known to all hot spots, so I was very satisfied with this trip.
