BEFORE BOOKING THIS TRIP YOU MUST KNOW:
The landscapes that you will see during this adventure trip are absolutely amazing, but you must know that the quality of service is not good in the 4WD 3 days tour from San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni Salt Flats. Food is included but it is basic food. Accommodation is really basic. Nights in shelters with shared rooms and without private bathroom. Sometimes without hot water and sometimes, even without water. Sometimes dirty. Weather during the night can be 20º Celsius below cero. Drivers don`t speak English and are not tour guides, they are just drivers. You will be in places which altitude is 5000 mts over the sea level.
So, the idea that we want you to have clear is that service is not good during these days, but landscapes are fabulous and make the trip really worthy. This is an adventure trip and the most remarkable about this trip are the unique landscapes that you will be able to enjoy. If you don`t care about this lack of comfort, we can guarantee that you will enjoy one of the most spectacular landscapes of South America. It is very important that you know this at the moment of booking this trip.
