Just returned from a 10 day tour of the puna region of Argentina and the atacama desert in chile with socompa tours. This was an exceptional trip which I can't recommend highly enough.

I and my husband are independent travellers who do not in the normal course like to depend on a guide, but there are some places on earth which exist at so many levels of discovery, that when time is limited a good guide becomes imperative. In such a case, the choice of tour operator is critical if one wishes to... More

I was going on a 3-days tour with travel agent Mares del Sur, Buenos Aires 88, Loc. 4, in Salta in Argentina (driver Cristian Cocilobo). This is a very bad and irresponsible travel agent. The driver was asking me if I was in for sex (that was his thought of woman from Europe) and he was chewing coca leaves from... More
