A long day of driving but you see a lot of cool stuff. The views at Purmamarca perhaps the highlight. Well organised and with some time to wander around on your own. Maria was a very knowledgable guide and explained everything in both English and Spanish at the same time.

A long and busy day! Breathtaking landscapes. The fortress of Tilcara is worth a visit. The mountain with 7 colors is magnificent. Our guide, Maria, very kind and she gave the information fairly in Spanish and English.

The guides were excellent, especially our English translator. Very knowledgable and explained everything as we went along. Always willing to take our photograph and tell us where the best places to eat were.

Various natural landscapes during the trip with ample opportunity for stops for admiring / photographing. The entire area is well worth a visit. Bus ride and guide well cared for.

Excellent organization, warm company of the guide Elena and the driver Pepe in addition to the wonders of the Calchaqui landscape
