What people are saying about Salta

They were punctual for picking up from the hotel. The guide spoke both Spanish and English, and described step by step what we saw or what we would see. It was a wonderful experience, I never thought of seeing such places ... The caves along the road to CAFAYATE are extraordinary. I consider it an experience to do both for the good wine that gratified us on arrival and for the magnificent places that characterizes this beautiful land.
