Trip to Bolivia - Jun 1 - Jun 10, 2019

Traveler: Flaminia R. - Local specialist: Milenka Omireis

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Bolivian Altiplano. Milenka was very good at planning the trip for our group of six . She was available for help and tips before and during the trip . It was very easy to work with her. The hotels she picked were comfortable and in great locations . We especially enjoyed the Hacienda Cayara in Potosi ( it was like going back in time) and the Palacio de Sal. Her guides were all very nice and knowledgeable. I want to especially commend the two drivers we had from Carolina del Norte Tours , Roger and Martin. They were very safe and professional ( and helped me improve my Spanish ). Bolivia is safe and an incredible beautiful country (the Salar and the Eduardo Avaroa Reserve are among the most memorable places I have ever seen) and its people are very friendly . Speaking some Spanish helped us meet some locals who were eager to talk to us : a miner or the people in the salteña shop or at the markets, and especially Nieves who gave us the plantation tour at Munaipata Coffee.

Hola Flaminia,

Thank you for your great comments for all the team! I am so happy you had a great time in Bolivia. I would have like to meet you when you arrived at La Paz but I had a family inconvenient and could not go to your hotel, I am sorry.
By the way, nice pictures :)
