The excursions was great. Only thing is that we should have perhaps skipped the amphitheater to have time to see closer the "castle/cathedral" formation close to the rock formation that looks like the titanic. Or maybe have less time in the cafayate town thatbis cute but doesn not require that much time to visite even to shop around. The guide,Angy and driver Carlos were great. Angy to the time to translate all in english for us. Very knowlegeable too.

Fernando, the guide was really involved in his sharing through all explanations all the way to Salinas Grandes! Providing good tips to avoid the crows and be able to take the best pictures! Nice day around Salta.
