    The salt flats were amazing. The itinerary was solid, though it's marketed as 8 days, it was really 5, as the briefing on day one was worthless, and then we didn't leave until 5 the next day. The arrival in Santiago should be the last day, but Tucan... Read more

    Tucan Travel commented on this review
    Hi Kenneth, thank you for taking the time to leave a review - all feedback both positive and negative is important to us. Firstly I am so pleased you enjoyed the Salt Flats, they are a favourite of ours and that overall you seemed to enjoy the trip. Regarding the itinerary; for all of our tours (and tours of most other tour operators also) day one of the tour is a joining day to allow our clients time to arrive on international flights and the tour briefing is held at 6pm on this day. The published itinerary makes it clear that day 1 and 8 are simply arrival and departure days. Day 2 of the tour has an evening flight which allows time to explore the very interesting city of La Paz before heading to Uyuni. If the last day of the tour i.e. the arrival day in Santiago was the last day of the tour this would result in no hotel accommodation provided in Santiago and it would be very unwelcoming possibly unsafe to just leave our clients in a central location without a tour leader or help. We believe that this is stated honestly and in detail on our website and that this systems works very well for the benefit of our clients. I agree the staff on the Andes Salt Flat crossing are excellent and we are very happy to be working with them. Regarding your Tucan Travel tour leader, Fabio, he consistently receives good to excellent feedback on his client questionnaires although it is true to say that on your tour his feedback was mixed. We are investigating the complaints you have made as we take this very seriously. Nevertheless it is incorrect to say that the group almost missed the flight from Atacama to Santiago due to Fabio. Fabio did have airline tickets for all tour members ready and checked in for the flight, however upon arrival the airline initially claimed that some tickets did not have luggage included. Fabio then paid the luggage fee, however this money was then reimbursed as the airline realised they had made an error as Tucan Travel had paid in advance for check in luggage for all clients. This was an airline error not an error by Fabio who managed a difficult situation very well. Tucan Travel attempts to give an honest appraisal on our website of what to expect on the Salt Flats crossing; this includes a full page going into much detail on altitude sickness - https://www.tucantravel.com/high-altitude-sickness - It also needs to be remembered that your tour coincided with the coldest time of the year on the Salt Flats and I understand that on your tour temperatures fell below the norm for this time of the year; most of our tours do not experience the extreme could that you encountered. Thank you again for taking the time to leave feedback and we wish you all the best in your future adventures. Best, Rosanna @ Tucan Travel

    Itinerary was very good. I would recommend that guests arrive early in La Paz, which is a very interesting city and there's really not enough time there on the tour to explore it properly. The Chilean border crossing was much longer than advised by guide. I... Read more

    Not a great deal included, I think having the city tours included would be a good baseline for orientating on first arrival. The tour leader was personable and friendly, but he gave limited context and information while traveling between stops. He handed... Read more

    I had a Bolivia & Northern Chile Tour with Tucan Travel in October 2017. The tour itinerary itself is well designed and overall it was good. However, our tour guide 'Carlos' was very unprofessional. He was flirty with 20's female travelers and he even... Read more
