Full description
On this full-day tour you’ll travel from Salta city to San Salvador de Jujuy. This is where your adventure begins, with visits to the towns of La Quebrada de Humahuaca. The first of the towns on the itinerary is Purmamarca, with the spectacular Cerro de Siete Colores (Hill of 7 Colors) rising behind it. Take a walk to the principal square, where craftsmen display and sell their work. Afterwards, visit the church, which played an important role in local history. From the road you’ll be able to see the Paleta del Pintor Hill, before arriving in Humahuaca town. Enjoy a break for lunch and take some time to explore the town. Admire the impressive Monumento de la Independencia (Independence Monument). As you make your way back to Salta, you'll visit a chapel built 700 years ago that has an altar covered in gold. You’ll also get to see priceless paintings of the Cusco School and a small monument marking the imaginary line of the Tropic of Capricorn. Stop in Tilcara town for a walk to its main square and church. There will also be time here to visit the Anthropology Museum. The final stop on the tour is Las Ruinas Incaicas del Pucara de Tilcara. These ruins date back to a society even older than the Incas.

A long day of driving but you see a lot of cool stuff. The views at Purmamarca perhaps the highlight. Well organised and with some time to wander around on your own. Maria was a very knowledgable guide and explained everything in both English and Spanish at the same time.

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!

Great value for money. Full day tour returning to Salta late at night. It would have been good to stay a bit longer at Purmamarca and less at Tilcara, however it was all enjoyable and interesting. The minibus transport is ok if you board early in the tour when there is choice of seats but if you are picked up when the bus is getting full, the choice of seats is not great and consequently your view and comfort may be compromised e.g. having to sit in a seat with the wheel cover in your foot space or the views partially obstructed by chairs or window frames not aligning with your position.
