Our three-day "Salt and Seven Colours Trip" with Poncho Tours was without a doubt the highlight of our 2 week trip to Argentina. Having initially planned on hiring a car and driving around the Salta region ourselves, we are immensely glad that we decided to take a guided tour with Poncho. We gained so much more from the tour than... More

Having a private guide may seem like a luxury, but it's worth every penny and more. I had a lot of fun with Nick working out our itinerary for three full days in the countryside plus a late-day tour of Salta itself. Choose Poncho because: (1) They stay flexible. Our plane was late and we were tired, but our guide... More

I was referred to Nick at Poncho tours by the hostess of our B and B in Salta as I emailed back and forth with her about what we were going to do in and around Salta. And I am so grateful for the referral. Nick was incredibly helpful and patient as we planned out our trip in the Salta... More

Nick Evans, the owner of Poncho Tours, was our private guide and driver for an 8-day journey through the region. I would say he’s worth his weight in gold, but after so much time in salt fields, it may be apropos to say he’s salt of the earth! Nick is a British expat who is a rare combination of being... More

My husband and I hesitated to use Poncho Tours because they are expensive and because we had to pay in American dollars and did not want to carry that much money with us. In retrospect, I must say that it was an excellent decision mostly because Mariano was our guide for five days. I would have expected it to be... More

In March 2014 I spent 5 days touring the Salta region with Poncho Tours. I am a woman travelling alone and am in a wheelchair, unable to walk. Right from the initial contact with Nick nothing was any bother, and all my questions were instantly answered, the communication was friendly and professional all the way through. My guide was Jed...

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

Nick was attentive to our every need - structuring the entire trip to suit us. Every day was interesting with a variety of experiences. Nick is a valuable source of information. 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
