We did a private full-day tour of the Salar de Uyuni with Hidalgo Tours, visiting the trains' cemetery, Palacio de Sal Hotel, Colchani, Incahuasi Island, and Pucura Ayque. We had a fantastic day with our professional, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and fun guide, Jhenny , and driver. We had a great time with Jhenny taking pictures of us being attacked by dinosaurs, etc. and enjoyed a fantastic lunch and sunset wine and cheese on the Salar. We highly recommend this trip. Thanks guys for such a great day!

This was a very unique experience for us. The private tour guides took us to the largest salt flat in the world by using his 4x4 SUV, they even set up a nice table for us to eat lunch in the middle of the salt flat. Seeing our reflections and watching sunset were such an unforgettable moments in our life.

I did not care very much of the Cemetery of Trains, now old and dilapidated. Edgar our tour guide explained that about 20 years ago the trains were in good condition. From there we spent the day in El Salar de Uyuni. Next time I am going to spend more time in the Salar, taking panoramic pictures and stopping for longer periods of time in some interesting places. There is this region where some holes have developed and from where something like boiling water comes to the surface. It is actually very cold salty water, that has some medicinal purpose. Because it was still mid morning the sun was up but the cold was still very present. I touched the water and my hand got frozen, and became white. Afterwards my skin got very soft. Again some holes have different coloration, some are red , some yellow and some white. A proof of the different minerals that exist in the Salar. From there we preceded to the Dakar monument (made of salt) took pictures and then went inside the First Salt Hotel made in the Salar. (no longer used as a hotel instead it became a museum and now used as a place to have lunch. Tables and chairs are made of salt.) The food you eat is provided by each tour company. Ours was still warm and delicious. My mom is vegetarian and they prepared special food for her. We had quinoa, boiled vegetables and pieces of chicken as the main dish, we had bananas for dessert. Water and coke. Then we went to see the only island that can be visited Incawasi.

Spectacular adventure with Hidalgo tours (via our tour company). Starting with the Train cemetery (separate review), followed by drive to Salt Flats.

Our guide Al was amazing and made the experience so memorable; taking crazy pictures for us. This was followed by a picnic, which was so lovely and everything had been considered including hand sanitiser, dessert and hot drinks.

This was followed by another awesome adventure hiking up Cacti filled Incahuasi Island. I highly recommend good walking shoes or trainers as some parts are steep but well worth the climb up to view the very old cacti and views.

We missed out on the museum due to adverse weather but managed to observe flamingos and made it back to the Salt mines at sunset. Highly recommend extra clothes/ layers as it got so cold so quickly (you can always remove layers and leave them in the car).

An awesome Bolivian adventure!

There were 7 of us so we had two cars and one guide for our 3 day 2 night tour. We saw so much and really enjoyed it all. Completely unforgettable experience. The rock formations, flora and fauna were amazing. Imagine thousands of pink flamingoes on a lake. The salt flats are surreal guess that's why they were chosen to be the site of the planet Creton in the Last Jedi which just begins to show the beauty. We were there in July so we did not experience the full magic of water ontop of the flats but that's ok. The historical insight gained from the Cemetery of the Trains proves once again that corporations sometimes decide international boundaries for self serving reasons. The guides and drivers have seen it all and know what to do in emergencies--sadly we saw a truck driver on the side of the road that had been killed when his truck fell on top of him--the staff whipped out the satellite phone and dutifully reported the incident; our condolences to the truck drivers family. This is wild isolated country and anything can happen which is part of the thrill. There was freshly fallen snow and some of the roads were closed so we went off road and actually got lost but found shortly after--wild and not scripted. The Salt Palace hotel was great but the Jardines de Mallku Cueva not so great and out in the middle of nowhere. Love Fish Isle. The town of Uyuni is quite interesting and would have liked to have spend a second night at the Salt Palace hotel to explore Uyuni a little bit more. Wonderful food, wonderful people. First class! Thank you all.

We did a two day tour for 5 of us and it was excellent. We had Isaac as our guide. He was professional and very safety conscious. We had two vehicles because they don't like to squash you in as there is alot of driving. From the arrangements made with the office, the guide, drivers and food it was exceptional. I spent alot of time researching tour companies becsuse you generally only come to a place like this once. I wasnt dissapointed. Highly recommended
