Comfortable and well organised 4day trip across the salar and surroundings. After hearing quite a few horror stories from people who went for a cheap trip here, I was very glad we opted for Ruta Verde and stayed in comfortable hotels. The Spanish speaking driver did a lot of effort to communicate clearly, so it was not an issue that... More

Excellent tour from San Pedro to Uyuni. Really nice and competent driver, in one of the most incredible landscapes you can imagine. Ruta Verde provides an excellent service.

My friends and I took the 3D2N tour from San Pedro de Atacama to the Uyuni Salt Flats. Scouting through the various tour agencies, Ruta Verde stood out in particular for its consistently good ratings. So we went with them, despite the slightly steeper price compared to other agencies. The pick up from San Pedro de Atacama was prompt and... More

Booking process via internet/e-mail was uncomplicated, communication was very quick and friendly. The tour itself was perfectly organised and conducted in a safe manner. Special thanks to our driver Elvis, who not... More

We booked the 3 days/2 nights tour from Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama. Everything was well organized, the hotels (Tayka) including dinner were great. Elvis, our spanish speaking driver, was fantastic, relaxed and drived and cooked (lunch) very well. We had a great time and would definitively do it again. The salt lake, volcanoes, lagoons, flamingoes were amazing! Elvis... More

We had an excellent tour made all the better because Gijs was able to reschedule us at the last minute because I had picked up a tummy bug en route to Uyuni. Our driver, Freddi, got as much out of the tour as he possibly could for us yet gave us time to explore as we wished. We never felt... More

We had an amazing three days tour from Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama, flawlessly organized by Michael of Ruta Verde Tours. The electronic communications with Michael, before the booking, were always to the point, professional and all my questions were immediately and clearly answered. Although we booked the trip about five months ahead of time, not much follow up... More

Driver; Freddy: Our driver was Freddy and he was beyond fantastic. First off, he is very conscious about safety and I was impressed to notice that he himself, always made sure he had his seat belt fastened. He drove at a reasonable speed and was constantly checking the tire pressures etc during our photo stops. He was also very considerate... More
