What people are saying about Cafayate

The guide was very attentive with me. Being the only one who wanted the tour in English I sat next to the guide at the front of the bus so he could translate for me before or after the Spanish version. I also had the right to exclusive anecdotes so very nice. The bus was very comfortable and the landscapes and places visited wonderful. Just flat on the wine tasting where I did not understand the entire intervention being only in Spanish. But I absolutely do not regret this day which was very pleasant!!

We went with my mom. We loved it!! Cafayate is beautiful and worth it. As for the winery that they took us, I can't say much. The guide, Angie, a genius, her explanations were agile and fun and she recommended places to go that were really worth it. Mauricio the driver an ace at the wheel. I recommend!!

Our guide was Angie and driver Guille (Rico) both with a lot of predisposition and good vibes! If it's their turn they're going to have a great time

Excellent experience, Angui the super cool guide, told several interesting stories of the places we visited and very friendly. The organization a 10/10.

Stunning scenery with a fantastic guide (Jeremy) both English and Spanish,
