What people are saying about Salta Province

This was a fantastic trip! The Salinas were incredible, but Purmamarca and it's surrounding mountains is absolutely breathtaking. Do the pase Colorado. Our guide was Fernando who was the absolute best! He is fluent in English and French and he's funny and makes sure everyone is having a good time. Try to get him as your guide! FANTASTIC experience.

I simply loved. The guide Eduardo gave us a contextualized and critical history lesson on the situation in the salt desert.

The guide was very friendly, thoughtful and helpful. The scenery was just as I expected and it was amazing.

Karina (guide) was very friendly and fun at all times. The excursion is recommended
