We made a short trip from Buenos Aires to Salta to take this tour and overall, we were disappointed. The bus was 2

Scenery was beautiful, but . . .
The place the tour company took us for lunch was horrible—fixed prices, way overpriced for quality, and not tasty.

It is all very nice but the best is Pumamarca. Spare a couple of days to stay there and explore and enjoy that amaizing place.
El Tren de la Nubes was a deception.
Very good organization but they don’t have a policy to return the money to somebody who gave a 3 days in advance cancelation. You will not enter the clouds, it’s just a name and crossing a 150 feet bridge is ........

The tour is wonderful, but it makes absolutely no sense to finish the trip in Pumamarca late in the afternoon, when the sin is down and there’s no way to enjoy the seven colours hill.

Just the same trip agenda but in the opposite order would be great, I do not see any reason why they do bot make Salta - Pulmamarca - Salinas - Sant Antonio de los Cobres - Quebrada del Toro and then back to Salta.

I guess it should be difficuit to addapt lunch time, but it is quite dissapointing reaching Pumamarca late on the afternoon and then discover that the famous multi-colors hill is just a grey shadow because the sunshine gos to the opposite direction.

At least the tour operator should warn the travelers in advance that they are not going to see anything in Pumamarca, as there are other tours that rightly reach Pumamarca on the morning, ex those going later to Humahuaca.

Just for the record, the local agency indicated is an another wholesale agency (as Viator) located in Buenos Aires, the service is provided by a local retail tour operator.

We duscovered that circumstance because we needed to call the operatirvas the tour started one and a quarter hour later, with no notice, aparently because they had to change the driver. Nothing to say, except the fact that they should warn the passangers or their hotels of that circumstance. Just a call to the hotels would have been welciome.

Havig said that, we very much enjoyed our trip thanks to our phantastic guide Maru and our driver Alfredo.

Manu gave a deep explanstion on any place visited : Quebrada del Toro, Tren de las Nubes, Salinas Grandes and Pumamarca.

The bus ride is long but they maje many stops.

We were luckly in Salinas Grandes as it was the pefect scenario to enjoy the famous “mirrow effect” : sunny day but with some clouds, and some rain on the day before, si it was some water on the salt surface.

—————————————

El tour es fantástico, pero no tiene ningún sentido acabar en Pumamarca por que llega allí por la tarde y el sol da la espalda al famoso cerro de los siete colores, que se convierte en una aburrida pared gris.

El mismo tour pero en sentido contrario sería fantástico, es decir debería ser Salta - Pumamarca - Salinas - Sant Antonio de los Cobres - Tren de las Nubes / Quebrada del
Toro - Salta.

Entiendo que puede ser difícil encajar la hora del almuerzo, pero es decepcionante llegar a Pumamarca y no poder ver nada de esa maravilla sólo porvque es muy tarde

Al menos debería advertirse a los viajeros, por que hay otris tour que sí llegan a Pumamarca por la mañana, por ejemplo los que van a Humahuaca.

Hago constar que el operador local que se indica es otro mayorista (como Viator) de Buenos Aires, el servicio lo presta otra agencia local.

Descubrimos esta circunstancia por que nos vimos obligados a llamarles por que nis recogieron del hotel una hora y media tarde. Aparantemente el conductor enfermó y debieron sustituirlo, nada que objetar pero una llamada al cliente o a su hotel hubiese sido de agradecer.

Dicho todo esto, disfrutamos de nuestro conductor Alfredo y de nuestra excelente guia Maria Eugenia (Maru).

Maru nos dio ampliad y profundas explicaciones de todos
los sitios visitados. El tour en bus es largo pero se hacen muchas paradas.

Tuvimos suerte en Salinas Grandes por que bos encontramos el escenario perfecto para dusfrutar del famoso efecto espejo : dia soleado con nubes y con lluvia
del dia anterior que dejó una fina capa de agua sobre la sal

Not impressed by the fact that the van had no microphone, so the guide has to scream all the time. Nature is beautiful. The amphitheater and the landscape are gorgeous. The town of El Alfarcito is worth visiting. The chapel and the legacy of the priest who did so much for the community are great! Being such a little town, it is wonderful that everything is clean and pretty. We got a flat tire, and the spare tire was in terrible shape. The agency should be more careful. I was afraid to get a second flat tire. The food was pretty good at the restaurant, and the bathrooms were pretty clean. The salinas did not impress us. Probably that is why we only stopped for about 10 minutes. They are just a big white extension. The guide (Gala) was very knowledgeable and professional. The driver (Matías) was very good and kind. The ride was a little too long, but it was partially due to the fact that it took a long time to pick up all of us. The landscape is breathtaking, particularly when you start descending from 4170 m.o.s.l. It is good using coca leaves and drinking water. Take a sweater and be careful with the altitude.
