Amazing experience. The opportunity to see how the landscape changes from Salta Capital to Salinas Grandes is really great and everything went as expected. The only thing to mention is that Salinas Grandes itself is not as nice as we were expecting. The trip to get there is what really makes your day together with the guide’s explanation in order to understand why the landscape is as it is. Would certainly recommend this!

Excellent!! Both the guide Martín, and the driver Mauricio super attentive. They explain to you about the history and illustrious citizens of Salta / Jujuy, they explain to you about the topography of the territory and in turn they take you to multiple points to enjoy and take photos of the landscapes.

Different landscapes are appreciated that contrast with each other. Excursion and guide highly recommended. I would do it again. The next time I would like to stay in Purmamarca so that I can better explore the town. Dreamlike.

The landscapes are very beautiful and especially the guide Roberto who knew how to make this trip a unique experience. The truth is highly recommended!

The guide and the circuit were excellent, always very cool and with a good disposition towards the people who were on top of the minibus ...
