Full description
Day 1: 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. Day 2: Discover Argentina's breathtaking natural beauty on this full-day tour. After getting picked up from your hotel in Salta, begin the journey towards the neighboring province of Jujuy, passing through the towns of Volcán and Tumbaya along the way.  Your first stop of the day is at the beautiful town of Purmamarca, one of the most picturesque villages in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Quebrada de Humahuaca. Visit the town's vibrant main square and perhaps pick up some souvenirs at one of the many surrounding craft stands. Afterward, enjoy a visit to the breathtaking and aptly-named 7 Color Hill. Later, continue your ascent along the majestic Cuesta del Lipan to reach the Salinas Grandes, one of the 7 Wonders of the Argentine Republic. Here, enjoy some free time to admire the unique salt planes and famous pools. Afterward, return to Purmamarca and break for lunch at one of the many traditional restaurants before returning to Salta.

It was a good program and the guides are good. But the second day's program is somewhat similar to the first day's program. The English explication is shorter comparing to the Spanish explication.

Tag 1: Am ersten Tag sind wir mit Julio nach Salina Grande gefahren. Sehr netter Guide. Er hat alles ausführlich zu erst in Spanisch erklärt und dann in Englisch wiedergegeben. Die Tour hat uns sehr gut gefallen, wir waren auf knapp 4170 Meter Höhe und die Salzwüste war super. Die Fotos mit dem besonderen Effekt sind echt cool geworden. Wir hatten da insgesamt 40 Minuten Zeit, war ok, bisschen mehr Zeit wäre auch nicht schlecht gewesen. In Purmamarca sind wir auf Julios Emfehlung in ein Restaurant gegangen. Das Essen dort war lecker. Tag 2: Den zweiten Tag hat die Reiseleitung Maru gemacht. Auch eine sehr freundliche und aufgeschlossene Reiseleiterin. Sie hat sehr viel erklärt und man war sehr willkommen bei Fragen. Wir waren heute erneut in Purmarmaca, fanden wir es trotzdem schön. Die farbenreichen Berge sehen echt beeindruckend aus. Die Gruppen hatte 12&18 Personen eine angenehme Größe. Wir sind mit einen kleinen Mercedes Sprinter gefahren. Sehr zu empfehlen!
