The most important thing all tourists need to know, and most don't until visiting a tour operator, is that the name Salar de Uyuni (or Salt Flats) Tour is a bit misleading. While all tours do indeed visit the Salt Flats, which is the supposed highlight of the tour, that is only part of either a three or four day trip.
If I was in charge of Bolivian tourism (come on, I know someone out there wants to give me this job), I would rename it a Tour of Southwest Bolivia. You cover a lot of ground on this trip and see a myriad of landscapes, lagoons, wildlife, mountains, geothermal activity, and of course, the salt flats themselves.
