What's included in this trip
Bolivia Highlights SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Built in a canyon, the unique and bewtiching city of La Paz is filled with steep, cobbled streets, fascinating markets, evident tradition and captivating sights.
Explore the strange and stunning landscapes of the Salar de Uyuni by 4x4. Infinite blue skies meet endless white salt on what was once a prehistoric lake, making for plenty of fun and fantastical photo opportunities. Continue on to Laguna Colorado – a shallow salt lake of magnificent red hues dotted by bright pink flamingos.
The loveliness of Potosi - one of the highest and more fascinating cities in the world - is mirrored by the harshness of its mines and mining history.
The delightful city of Sucre impresses visitors with its historic charm, indigenous roots and calm atmosphere, and is the perfect place to ease into the Bolivian way of life.
With its high altitude and strong indigenous roots, La Paz has a quiet dignity and is a real cultural gem of South America.

Bolivia Highlights, June 2014
overall I'm sure Fredy is a good bloke, but think he was a bit overwhelmed by the 'group'. I think it would have helped if all group had been present at group meeting - half the group arrived in hotel 5 mins before meeting and didn't bother joining in because they were already a 'group' (GGSUC). Encouraging /insisting them to attend may have been helpful to set the tone of the tour. There was no updated itinerary at the meeting and in fact it was not available until half way into tour, and only after several requests. Initial communication from Fredy was fractured. He didn't address the whole group and it became problematic because plans were not dicsussed and agreed by whole group, so misunderstandings ensued. It was only after insistence at Potosi that changed. I was surprised on day 2 that Fredy borrowed money off a group member to cover bus and entry to Moon Valley for the group. I don't fully understand why, but on day 2 of our Salar 3 days, Fredy told us we would have to pay National Park fees and he would reimburse us on return to Uyuni. The evening before we left Uyuni I had made a point of checking with him that we would need no money for 3 days, and because I was told that was the case I did not withdraw funds from ATM. and several of us did not have money to pay the fees. We were delayed flying from Sucre to La Paz for over 5 hours, ostensibly due to cloud, and for a couple of hours we were unable to find Fredy in the airport to clarify our position.

Loved the Salt flats but could have left going Potosi and Sucre. There would need to be an activity in these 2 places. Due to safety the mines are no longer recommended in Potosi. There needs to be some activity to make this place relevant ie cooking class or home stay visit. Same with Sucre even though it was a city where you could do more things. You could add a trip to the Amazon like what we did in Peru.
