This was an expensive tour and I was expecting to receive what was described in INCLUDED as it was supposed to be a 6 hour tour. This included a bottle of water, a bottle of wine, a telescope, and a professional guide. We got to the Salt Flats and as they were filled with rain water, we had to stand to see the stars, the guide didnt even give us some camping chairs to sit down on. I suppose they expected us to stand there for 6 hours. The stars werent that bright as it isnt the best season to see them, however we at least expected some kind of information on the stars as they give information during the day tour. But our guide didnt even know the names of the most basic constellations.
Our guide was kind but he did not even know that water and wine were included in the tour, nor that we had paid for 6 hours of stargazing. He did not have a telescope either.
Basically we paid 180 dollars each person just to be driven to the salt flat at night, to see the stars for 40 minutes and return back to Uyuni completely dissatisfied. Complete waste of money and time as we could have seen these kinds of star with much more comfort and enjoyment from many places. It was unacceptable, that we didnt even recieve the things that we had paid for when we bought the tour. Very disappointed.
We followed our day tour with this night tour. Woscar, our guide was a really cool dude who has done many, many tours. As you can imagine, at night it gets cold and our night was no exception. He brought us to a section of the flats where we watched some constellations set as their star light reflected on the salt flats. SO TOTALLY COOL! He had a laser pointer for outlining the various constellations and I also brought my own. The Milky Way was the longest and brightest I have ever seen it anywhere. Literally, from just about horizon to horizon.
Woscar also had boots for standing in the cold water. Mine were a bit small so you might want to email sizes ahead of your trip. Wine, cheese and snacks under the stars was unforgettable and an anniversary memory for sure. Remember to book your trip around when the moon is NOT around or rises late as we did. A repeat experience if there was one.
