We did an 8 day tour with Nick in mid March, and the experience was excellent. We covered the wine areas of Cachi and Cafayete, the high altitude Puna and a day and a half around Tilcara. Having a guide, especially in the Puna, took us to locations we otherwise wouldn't see, including small boutique wineries that were off the... More

We used Poncho Private Day Tours for our 3 day visit in the Salta Province. I found them to be very efficient and helpful. Nick was our booking agent, and nothing was ever a problem. They booked a perfect tour and hotels for us. Mariano, our guide made our tour so enjoyable and interesting. Mariano was always making sure that... More

Having decided to make this trip rather late, I contacted Nick by recommendation from another friend. He proved to be honest, flexible and frankly enthusiastic about making the trip work against the odds. I spent 2 days around the Northern part - Jujuy, Salta, Purmamarca, Tilcara, Salinas Grandes, etc. The guide (Jed) clearly knew his way around and was a... More

The pace of the journey exceptionally comfortable in the 4 wheel drive vehicle in affable company. We have no reservations in recommending Poncho Tours. I was truly wanting to... More

We booked a 5 day trip with Poncho Tours in March 2013, and it was a great experience. Nick worked with us to plan the trip, and was also our tour guide. We started and ended the trip in Salta, making a circuit of the Calchaqui Valley. The scenery was incredible, and we got to taste some delicious and unusual... More

We travelled with Poncho Tours in November 2012 and I am reminded to write this review as we are just about to book with them again for November 2013. Firstly Nick gave us lots of suggestions for our self drive road trip from Salta via Cachi to Cafayate including a great place to stay in Cachi. We stayed at their... More

We interfaced with Nick to set up a 5-day, 4-night tour in the areas to the north and west of Salta. First, Nick was very responsive to questions and happy to provide advice on all aspects of the area. He was great to work with, and he worked with us to tailor a trip to exactly what we wanted to...

Nick organized a thoughtful three-day road trip for me and my friend in April 2013, with Rodrigo as our guide. In addition to being a patient, good-natured guy in general, Rodrigo seemed to know something about everything (geology, food, culture, history, wildlife, the Salta wine industry, the local UFO lore) and added so much to our trip with his commentary...

We chose Poncho Tours for 2 reasons. One, it has garnered rave reviews in TripAdvisor based on reasonable sample size and time span. Two, it offers private tours (usually of no more than 2 or 3 people) tailored to specific interests. Nick, who runs Poncho with his wife Alicia, always responded quickly to our questions while we were still finalizing... More

Our family had a wonderful trip with Nick from Salta to Tucuman! He knows all the best places to eat, mountains to climb for an excellent view and perfect places to stay for a night! We enjoyed the trip very much! We also stayed at Poncho Huasi and can highly recommend this beautiful house!!!!
