Andes Salt Expeditions, is a Receptive Tour Operator in Uyuni, Potosi, Sucre, Bolivia's colonial cities, created, managed and operated by professional adventure guides since 1985. After twenty eight years of continuous working with high experience professionally, because we love nature and our work in 2000, we have participated in the development of documentary Potosí, to three TV channels in Japan (TBS - VISION Inc.), in the series of programs heritage cities of mankind, in April 2001, TEMJIM TV Inc. of Japan, with the series of "Chikyu Romance" for all of Japan. We have also participated in the filming of "travel to the ends of the earth" for Discovery Channel and A & D, K & Holland Productions series "Duel across the border." The last documentary winner with 20 awards, The Devil's Miner, was filmed over a period of four weeks in Potosí, in February 2004 and that would have been impossible to carry out without the dedication of an incredible support Braulio Mamani Director - Guide Andes Salt Expeditions.

Firstly, Salar De Uyuni was mind blowing but this review is of the company Andes. Firstly we booked through Andes because it had good reviews but we were put with another company Esmeralda but didn't know till after we left. Apparently this is quite common when they don't have a full group but we should be told not shipped off... More

Joined a 3D/2N tour, with a group of 6 in total, and surprisely the driver speaks decent English (some tour charges a lot on an English speaking guide) and pretty generous with his time. We get to see sunset on the salt flakes and he has funny ideas with taking funny photographs. Accomodation is okay, I would say it's fair... More

It's hard to find a good agency in uyuni cause there is more than 150 of them. We got really lucky with Andes Sally expeditions!! They are a professional company and will make your trip unforgettable! We went for the 3D/2N for 660 Bolivianos. And it was worth every penny. Thanks to the whole team and especially our great guide.

We really enjoyed our private tour to the Salt Flats and the southern part of Bolivia. Our guide/driver/cook was great, the hostels we were stayed were much better than we expected (beds and private rooms for the 2 nights) and all the meals were very good. Our guide organized our last day so that we go to the hot springs... More

Food, lunch was good dinner was disappointing. First night food was dripping in grease. Other companies got chicken and it just looked a lot better. Accommodation was... More

The tour is well put together and with our awesome guide, Vladimir, you get the salt flat tour that you want. We spent 3 days and 2 night driving and sight seeing through Salar de Uyuni and it had everything I wanted. Stretches as far as the eye could see of snow white salt flats, mountains lining the border of... More

Our 3-day Uyuni tour with Andes Salt Expeditions was absolutely awesome. When you take a tour with them, you'll find the right balance of cost to quality - that became more apparent with each day of our trip. On the first day, we experienced the Train Cemetery, Salar de Uyuni, and Isla Incahuasi before watching the sunset on the Salar.... More
