Excellent tour, outstanding hosts! Edu and Iván showed us around one of the most gorgeous regions of the North-West of Argentina: Cafayate. All the way from Salta City, we got to discover several natural landscapes and their breathtaking beauty. Do not hesitate and book this tour! Fingers crossed, you’ll be as lucky as we were and come across these great tour guides.

Great tour! The tour guide with us was Julio. He explained everything very nicely first in Spanish and then in English. Very friendly tour guide! The scenery on the tour was impressive. We stopped at huge canyons. Cafayate is not too big, we went for a little walk. There are a lot of souvenir shops and restaurants. The wine tour lasts just under a quarter of an hour, during which the wine production is explained. This is only in Spanish. The lady who did the tour summed it up for us in English. Then we were allowed to taste a red and a white wine. The group was around 20 people, which was a very comfortable size. We drove with a Mercedes Sprinter. The day was a beautiful experience!

The tour of 6/10 to Salinas has been wonderful. The walk and the views, dreamlike. Our guide, Julio Torres divine, attentive, informed, educated. And an excellent driver... a great compliment when it's a high-altitude road. Omar, our guide on 7/10 to Cafayate, was also a charm... Both excellent and the rides superb. Thank you
