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

After some research, we decided to go with Ruta Verde for our 3d/2n Salar de Uyuni tour, and we were not disappointed! The tour was very well organised, the vehicle was comfortable, clean and well maintained, the lunches were excellent, the accommodations (Tayka Hotels) were comfortable, and we had a great driver. Freddie is a fantastic guy and a safe... 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

We went on a private 3-day/2 nights tour with Ruta Verde and we had the best time! We went for the more expensive option that includes slightly more expensive hotels. We were positively surprised how nice the hotels were, both had heating and hot water. They served dinner and breakfast which was delicious. Our driver drove very carefully, so we... More

We took the 3 day tour from San Pedro to Uyuni. It was easy to book through email and Michael was patient with a few questions I had at the time of booking and later on. We did have a problem with our money transfer - it seemed our bank hadn't paid the fees but we couldn't really tell from... More

Four of us were looking to arrange a private trip from from San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni. I contacted several tour operators by email, but the most reassuring communications were with Ruta Verde.
