Full description
After departing from central Salta, head south into the stunning, red-tinged lands of rock formations and towering cliffs. The trip begins south of the province, where you’ll soak up some local culture by visiting the historic villages of the Lerma Valley. Afterwards, head to the Quebrada de las Conchas, a canyon of curiously shaped rocks, eroded for centuries by water flow and strong winds. Marvel at the complex rock formations within the ravine, from the Devil’s Throat, to the Amphitheater, to The Castles, among many other spectacular displays. After a thorough exploration, head to Cafayate to visit a vineyard to taste some of the best wines that the region has to offer, including Torrontés. After the tasting, you’ll head back to Salta through the Quebrada de las Conchas.

The guide was very attentive with me. Being the only one who wanted the tour in English I sat next to the guide at the front of the bus so he could translate for me before or after the Spanish version. I also had the right to exclusive anecdotes so very nice. The bus was very comfortable and the landscapes and places visited wonderful. Just flat on the wine tasting where I did not understand the entire intervention being only in Spanish. But I absolutely do not regret this day which was very pleasant!!

They look for you at the hotel, you make the way to Cafayate through the Quebrada de las Conchas walking in all the panoramic points and to visit, you go to a winery, you arrive in Cafayate where you have 2 hours to have lunch and tour the center, they leave you again in the hotel

The service was great! The Guilhermo Guide very attentive and friendly and with a lot of cultural and historical knowledge of the region. Driver drove very safely Negative point is the tasting place. The cellar is very simple, the wines served were very weak and the good ones (which are what Brazilians want to taste to take to Brazil) are not available for tasting. The guy who explained about each wine spoke very softly, it was impossible to hear it and served less than a glass of wine, totally outside the tasting standards of Argentina, Chile and other destinations. I found this cellar with poor service.
