Great sites
marsv14391, Oct 2022
We waited a while for our transportation to the tour to pick us up. Then once it arrived, the van that we traveled in was very crammed for the number of people that attended and it was very uncomfortable to be in for the many hrs we were in it, that’s why i took a point off but overall the tour itself was great. I enjoyed the sites that we visited. And our guide Jose was great.

Late pickup for an okay tour
Hailey_K, July 2022
The tour was nice experience overall, but there were many problems. First, my pickup time was assigned at 5:25am. Me and my brother were waiting in our hotel lobby at that time. After 10 minutes of no one picking us up, I messaged the company on Viator, messaged and called every Whatsapp number they gave me and got NO RESPONSE! Terrible customer service and terrible to make people wake up so early for no reason. We thought we were being scammed. Finally around 6am, a van finally came. The driver didn’t even say anything when opening the door for us, was just texting on his phone. I said what happened to the pickup time? He said there was traffic (there wasn’t). After the late pickup, we picked up more people who were annoyed at the lateness and then we all got dropped off on front of a random bank! THEN a bigger bus picked us up for our tour. Horrible communication, they never mentioned this plan- so me and my brother were just so confused all day. The salt mines were pink which was cool, but we barely got any time to hangout there. It was a very rushed experience. Then we went to the boat ride which was nice , but don’t expect to see flamingos up close. The restaurant was okay for lunch. Then the crocodile farm seemed to be really unethical. All the crocodiles were trapped in small spaces or cages which made everyone sad. They also tape their mouths shut for pictures. The staff on this tour was nice-but they sent me and my brother in a cab ALONE home from the bank we got picked up at! Very confusing itinerary with zero communications. Overall it was a nice experience but i would NOT do it again. It also says the day is 11-14 hours long. It was actually about 17 hours so if you book this tour make sure you get a lot of sleep. Very strange to mislead people with an inaccurate itinerary. Do this tour if you want to see Las Coloradas but be prepared for a long, confusing day. Hope this helps.

Plus belle activité de toute ma vie je la recommande ++++++++++
Caroline_G, Jan 2023
Le guide est drôle en plus de parler 5 langues différentes. Un peu difficile à suivre quand on est pas parfaitement bilingue car il mixte l'anglais en même temps ;-) Très belle organisation autant dans le transport que dans le support. Les guides nous aident , nous supportent et répondent à nos questions. Beaucoup de belles surprises inattendues dans cette excursion. En premier il y a la visite de los colorados, l'endroit est magnifique sous le soleil l'eau paraît rose du à la présence de sel dans la mer. C'est un endroit protégé et une usine d'exploitation du sel est tout près. Très venteux lorsque nous sommes allées. La deuxième partie était une balade en bateau (Je dirais plus une grosse chaloupe) où l'on visite la réserve naturelle où on peut y observer des oiseaux et des crocrodiles dans leur habitat naturel. Prenez note que si vous avez peur des oiseaux ils passent très près, même que nous pouvons leur toucher parfois ainsi que les nourrir.) Ensuite il y a un petit arrêt dans un espace maya avec de l'argile où il est possible et facultatif de l'appliquer sur notre peau pour exfoliation. Puis il y un repas (compris dans le prix) dans un petit village de pêcheur, donc principalement du poisson au menu. Puis pour finir une visite dans un petit centre de reproduction de crocodiles. Plein de surprises nous sont réservées à cet endroit. Très surprenant et intéressant. Journée très bien remplie. Seul bémol , prévoyez vous apporter de l'eau car la bouteille qui est incluse est très petite et c'est tout ce qu'ils nous donnent pour une excursion aussi longue.
