all the tours were very good. Drivers came on time and tours guides were clear on describing the sites visited

1. the schedule for clients should add English. The pick up time in San Pedro was 30 minutes before the schedule time which is confusing 2. Uyuni trip: crossing : visa fees for US citizen, the bill of $160 needs brand new. this created frustrations
