What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?
"Most definitely the day we spent on the Salar de Uyuni. We explored from 9am until after dark & got some great photos with the help of Diego who joined our group as additional tour leader in Oruro where we transferred to jeeps. Despite a road block, we arrived at Jirira in time for the evening meal. However, we did wonder if we would ever see tarmac again after we had to detour over the fields! The Salar itself is just stunning & we had an especially good picnic on the salt tables complete with table cloths.
We were lucky to be present for the annual Student Dance Parade in La Paz & for the 6th August celebrations in Sucre & Rurrenabaque."
How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Hector was very helpful but I think that some of our British expectations floored him at times.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Be prepared for the altitude & if possible take some herbal remedies, such as Ginkgo biloba & you will get so much more from the trip. Also do not expect good bathroom facilities and try to conquer any fears about unsafe wiring of shower heads.
Do you have anything else to add?
"We all suffered from the altitude after the trip to the jungle, even our guide. We would suggest that Explore consider reversing the order of travel so that Lake Titicaca is visited before the jungle.
In general the food was good but rustic & we particularly enjoyed the chance to try a different cuisine on our return to La Paz. We had several good organised meals with a great group."
