What people are saying about Quebrada de Humahuaca

This tour incorporates all of the main sites to see around the Salta region. Each day is ~12hrs long and lunch is not included, however a reservation is made in a local restaurant for a reasonably priced 3-course menu (you can also choose somewhere else in the town, if you wish). The 2 days to Salinas Grandes and Humahuaca repeat the first part of the road until Pumarmarca. Overall, the trip to Humahuaca was the least exciting of the 3 and I would recommend to only do 2 days (to Salinas Grandes and Cafayate). The guides spoke perfect English (and Spanish), and 1 of the guides spoke several other languages too. It was also great getting to know our fellow travellers! Overall would highly recommend to book; but would choose 2 days instead of 3.

Had three amazing tour guides (Fernando, Eduardo, and Maria). They were all very passionate and informative about the geography, fauna, and people of the areas we drove through/visited. We really enjoyed that there were many beautiful stops along the way.

Muy bueno el tour a muy buen precio, excelentes lugares que visitamos, muy bellos por su naturaleza, belleza y valor geológico.

Great activities accompanied by very competent guides, breathtaking landscapes, if you hesitate go for it!

Simply a great tour. Really recommended. It was a dream!!
