Good: Very organized tour with well maintained 4x4 vehicle. Guide speaks good english. First night Salt Hotel was awesome. Food is reasonably delicious. Bad: Service of reception at red planet office definitely needa improvement. Lady was pretty rude and wasnt welcoming. Being one of the most expensive tours in Uyuni, we do expect better customer service.

Yes, one of the more expensive tour operators for the Uyuni trips - but it is a once in a lifetime tour so it is better to pay a bit more and guarantee a fantastic time. Red Planet were super organised (for Bolivia) and our guide Markus was very knowledgable and a generally hilarious and great person. The jeeps were... More

My October 2016 3 day/2 night trip to the South West Bolivian Altiplano led by Oskar was absolutely amazing. Oskar is one of the most charismatic and enthusiastic guides I have ever met and all of us had an amazing time in this magnificent part of the world. Many thanks also to our amazing driver. This was also the best... More

Our entire tour went very smoothly, no horror stories. Our driver, Santiago drove very carefully and safely, navigating the very bumpy roads. Our guide Eban/Iban spoke great English, and was very knowledgable. Although he travelled in the other car for the entire tour, we were told by passengers of that car that he made a conscious effort to wait until... More

One of the more expensive tours but very well organized. English speaking guide. Good driver. Simple but clean accommodation. They seem to check the age of people and try to group them accordingly which we thought was great. We had great fun with our group. Only dissapointment was that they promised a private room on the first night which turned... More

I didin't know what to expect but this trip surpassed all my expectations. The scenery was breathtaking the food good and plentiful, accommodation adequate for the remoteness of the place. Marcus our leader was full of info. and charm, Juan our driver very helpful, a big thank you to both.

My wife and I just finished the 3 day salt flats tour (17-19nov). Such a great trip! I was so really impressed by the scenery! Really good informative and enthusiastic guide. The accomodation on the fist night was really cool. The second night was I little bit plainer but still comfortable. We had a great group of other folk on... More

I highly don´t recommend Red Planet Expedition for 2 main reasons: First one, their approach to the client - and I´m not talking about the guides - they are very good people but I´m talking about the office. On my trip I´ve beed served with a bad food (eggs) on the first evening and the second day I have food... More

We took a three day trip with Red Planet, starting in Uyuni and finishing in San Pedro de Atcama. The trip took us through some of the most stunning scenery you will ever see! Apart from that, the trip was very well organised, the cars very well maintained and comfortable, the food very tasty and our excellent driver, Obed, was... More
