This trip was a big disappointment. The bus was poorly designed. Only people with window seats had a chance of seeing anything, and some of them had difficulty. The first two hours in Salta City we're interesting, but the second two hours were a gigantic waste of time. Most of that segment was a long drive theough a rural area with nothing to see. The most frustrating thing was that the guide spoke in Spanish most of the time. Sincw this was supposed to be a bilingual tour, we expected he would translate the Spanish descriptions into English. We knew enough Spanish to tell that he left a lot out of the English "translations". The worst example was when we drive miles with nothing to see. He gave a 6-7 minute detailed description of the history of the area in Spanish. Then he said in English, "I was just telling them something about history."

A very good experience for the landscapes contemplated and well told by the guide (the driver also showed good expertise). Perhaps as negative points are 12-13 hours of activity and a very unpleasant stretch of road because it is not paved
