The guide was really lovely and the sites were nice. However, you have to pay entrance for the Salinas and the 7 color hill viewpoint which disappointed me as the price for the tour was already so steep. We also lost the group in Purmamarca and wandered around for over an hour in the heat without being able to find anyone or the tour van. I think with a few tweaks, this tour could be really great.

This was a fantastic trip! The Salinas were incredible, but Purmamarca and it's surrounding mountains is absolutely breathtaking. Do the pase Colorado. Our guide was Fernando who was the absolute best! He is fluent in English and French and he's funny and makes sure everyone is having a good time. Try to get him as your guide! FANTASTIC experience.

An incredible experience!! We left early in the morning and our guide was Jesus (and I'm not kidding) incredible what he knows and his good vibes always! Like Jorge the driver... the tour was great, the places, the people and the Salinas is something IM PRE SIO NAN TE!! You have to know when doing these types of tours that times may vary; For example, we had a long weekend and the return trip lasted a little longer than expected...
