It was great! Ramiro, the guide, super attentive! I loved the music I played, it took you to another world! Between the landscape and the melody it seemed like a dream! Once in Humahuaca we met Javier, a super nice and funny guy who gave us a mini tour! We all made our day! The truth is that it is worth it!

A very good experience for the landscapes contemplated and well told by the guide (the driver also showed good expertise). Perhaps as negative points are 12-13 hours of activity and a very unpleasant stretch of road because it is not paved

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.

It is a full, full day on a bus. And you go above 10,000feet. There is some steep walking. These are really important factors. The scenery of the mountainous areas are breathtaking, unique to Argentina.
