An incredible experience!! We left early in the morning and our guide was Jesus (and I'm not kidding) incredible what he knows and his good vibes always! Like Jorge the driver... the tour was great, the places, the people and the Salinas is something IM PRE SIO NAN TE!! You have to know when doing these types of tours that times may vary; For example, we had a long weekend and the return trip lasted a little longer than expected...

Great !! Fernando is a great guide, he speaks a lot of language and knows the region like the back of his hand. The journeys are made by small bus with about ten people and not by car, which makes the day very pleasant! The landscapes are breathtaking. I recommend !!

The place has a unique and indescribable beauty. Fernando is an excellent guide, always explaining the history of the places, and also an expert in the local fauna and flora.

Excellent tour. Everything happened as described on the website. It was the best excursion I did during my trip to Salta.

Excellent excursion!! Colorful, educational and fun. Highly recommended.
