What people are saying about Salta

Wonderful! Very cool experience to visit the Salt Flats and unlike anything we have done before. The town of Purmamarca is very small - our guide had a great recommendation Kuntur (sp?) for lunch. As a heads up, it is a very long drive both directions - definitely takes the entire day. Would recommend the tour to anyone visiting the area.

The guide was very professional. He picked us up in front of our hotel. Very available, he even made the effort to speak to us in French. Back with music from the 80s in the mini-bus Thank you again

Ótima organização, guia (sra Maru) excelente e nos informou muito bem sobre a região e costumes. Transporte seguro e em ótimo estado. Valeu cada minuto.

The guide was also very good and I had a valuable experience.

I love a whole 10 for everything but for the guide ...
