Spectacular mountains, rocks, and wine! Oh, yeah, and dust.

We toured with Nick for 10 days, from Salta to Mendoza. When we booked this trip I really had no expectations whatsoever about what we were going to see, other than hoping to taste a lot of good wine. In no way were we prepared for the spectacular scenery, day after day, each day different from the last! That said,... More

We had a great tour with Poncho of the remote Northwestern corner of Argentina. I'm a photography buff, and our guide, Mariano took us to those places we definitely would have missed if we had been on our own. Also, Mariano was a wealth of knowledge for history, culture,politics, and local flavor - what a great guy! Only criticism is... More

We were well taken care of by the team at Poncho tours from the time we first met Nick on skype and walked through what we wanted to to until the final day when we were dropped off at our hotel. We saw the beauty of the northwest with our driver, who was part history buff, part geologist, and a... More

I found Nick and Poncho Tours while searching the web for a last minute, customized trip following a business trip to Salta. I was traveling as a single female and wanted to be sure I was going to have a unique yet safe experience. Nick provided me with several tour options all reasonably priced and made sure I was even...

We spent a superb seven days on an individually designed tour around NW Argentina and Salta, with Nick of Poncho Tours, in December 2014. Every aspect of the tour was faultless and we cannot recommend the company too highly. From the moment we spoke by Skype to discuss what we wanted to the final day of the tour we were... More

Visited Salta in December 2014 and had signed up with Nick at Poncho tours based on some write ups online. Nick picked us up at the airport and took us to our hotel in Salta, where our guide for the 2 day trip, Mariano, met us next morning. Our experience of the Purmamarca area and Salinas Grandes was certainly enhanced... More

We found Poncho Tours on the internet after our other referred tour company was not operating tours on the days we were in Salta and we were very pleased with the result. We were met at the airport by Alicia on a gloomy Sunday afternoon and she gave us a quick overview of the must sees in Salta before depositing... More

We had an amazing tailor made trip with Poncho tours, In two days we visited the Purmamarka area and Salinas Grandes. Our guide and driver Jed was extremely helpful. The luxury of having a personal driver was invaluable and let us experience the beautiful scenery in Argentina in a way we will never forget. Nick's recommendations for the accomodation were...

We had an exceptional trip with Nick Evans of Poncho Tours in September 2014. We had originally planned to drive ourselves from Mendoza to Salta but on speaking to Nick he arranged to pick us up in Mendoza for a 10 day trip. He took to places we would have never seen and we did ten times what we would... More

We found Poncho Tours on the internet and communication with Nick was easy and friendly. We outlined our plans and he gave them real substance with sound advice on where to go, how long for and the best way round to do things. He also booked hotels for us and transferred money. He met us at the airport, took us... More
