  • Our guide was not the most professional one but very sympathetic and did her best. We enjoyed even though her English was not excellent. The landscapes along the route are very impressive. There is a lot of time spent sitting in the car. However, we made several stops, quite quick though. The trip is worth it. We enjoyed seeing the Salinas Grandes, Purmamarca and San Antonio de los Cobres. So much beautiful views!

  • As there were no English speaking guides, we were moved to a smaller car with a driver/guide and translator. The car was quite uncomfortable with 3 people in the backseat for a trip that’s a very long day of driving. As well, we received pretty minimal tour guiding. Sights were pretty fantastic though

  • A fabulous tour! Note that is starts early in the morning to pick-up all the people and ends around 9PM depends on traffic and weather conditions. We took a perfect amount of stops to take pictures and take-in all the beautiful scenery. In addition, the rest stops for food and bathrooms were good as well. Javiar and our driver were wonderful! Really engaging and helpful the entire day! I highly recommend this tour to see lots of places in one day!

  • To short stops it went sometimes very stressful but the scenerice are fantastic. The guide was very keen about the railway Tren a las Nubes it is a spectacular train but that was not the purpose of the trip. The complete experience was good. I would highly recommend to go for the trip.

  • Great guide - engaged, loved her job, personality, unique experiences - had llama for lunch, and amazing landscapes - multi-colored fields

  • Well worth the long day. A fantastic trip with a great guide, Eva. She was full of stories about the places. There was so much to look at and plenty of loo stops!! We stopped for the best views as well. Eva gave us Coca leaves to help with the altitude and we had no problems. highest point 4100m which is pretty high. Good idea to take leaves with you if you think you might have problems. The views are incredible. It was cold but sunny up at the top. A great day out. The Salt Flats are unbelievable something you have to see for yourself.

  • Got to see so much in one day. Awesome tour guides funny, friendly, knowledgable.

    Wish we got a better view of the hill of 7 colors. The location we stopped wasn't ideal.

  • We had a wonderful trip. The guide was great, although the van was old, in poor condition with poor ventilation, and part of the air-con unit actually broke while we were traveling - almost falling on a passengers head. It could've been a disaster.
    We only stopped at a cafe and over priced souvenir shop in Purmamaca - it wasn't until the end when I realised we were meant to look around the town. This happened possibly because we stopped to help a tourist change a tyre in the middle of nowhere and were tight for time.
    The landscape is outstanding, and the guides knowledge was terrific, but be prepared for 12 hours in the van.

  • great views and good guide and driver

  • Amazing, we loved everything during the tour
