          Salta to Mendoza
          We had such an amazing time with Poncho Tours in conjunction with Wine Tours and Wine Tasting. Our driver Nick was great company, very organised and extremely knowledgeable about the region. Over ten days we travelled from Humahuaca down to Mendoza and experienced culture, history, spectacular vistas, wonderful food and many amazing wineries.

          From Atacama to Salta (Iruya hike)
          Nick was our guide for this trip that brought us from the Atacama desert to Salta. Along the way, we hiked for 2 days in the Iruya area and stayed with a local family. The entire trip was well planned, customised to our needs and ran very smoothly. We also had many good experiences including horseriding in Purmamarca and staying in a vineyard in the Uquia area. Learnt a lot from Nick also during the 6 days with him in the region. Definitely was a fun and enjoyable time for us in Northwest Argentina.

          Unique journey with great guide
          Outstanding in every respect- friendly, informative guide to little visited area of beauty and history. Remote Argentina is an adventure of discovery: salt flats, museums, Inca strongholds, flamingos, lithium mining, haciendas, Bolivian border smuggling, wine, and especially empanadas. We traveled together for 14 days.

          We had an amazing time with Rodrigo! We customized the trip with Nick and he gave us a lot of options. Rodrigo was very informative and a safe driver. Really enjoyed our travels with him throughout northern Argentina.

          A perfect three days.
          We spent a wonderful three days with Nick, travelling from Salta to Molinos and Cafayate, stopping along the way to take in the spectacular scenery. The scale of the landscape is breathtaking. Delightful overnight stays at Hacienda de La Molinos and Vinas de Cafayate, with excellent food and wine. Nick is a mine of information, whether on ancient geological events or Argentine history and culture - the perfect host and guide. A marvellous experience!

          An excellent experience that we recommend with Poncho Tours
          Eight-day private tour from Mendoza to Salta. Everything was very pleasant, Mariano -our guide- was all the time explaining details of places from geographic, topographic, historical and whatever you can imagine. An expert and super amicable guide. I travelled with my young adult son who has been delighted with all places visited, their magnificence and life in such remote places. We appreciated the visits of recommended and not easy to find craftsmen, particularly in the Calchaqui region, unless with an expert guide as Mariano. I am from Buenos Aires and had been in the region but would have not discovered these places if it not had been because of Mariano. For those novice to Argentina and the Nordwest it is an excellent opportunity to see, learn and buy many objects of craftsmanship direct from the people who live there from their own work. We particularly enjoyed also our stays in Cafayate (at Cafayate Wine Resort hotel), the several bodegas visited and wine tastings as well as our stay in Salta (at hotel Alejandro I). I shall mention also that we loved the location, foo and wines at restaurant Puna, of bodegas Patelli in Cafayate (Salta).

          Thank you Poncho Travels!
          We had a wonderful experience traveling with Nick from Poncho Tours. Before arriving in Buenos Aires we coordinated with Gary from Wine Tours/wine Tasting about our interest in visiting the Salta area. Gary put us in touch with Nick and helped us plan an amazing two days from Salta to Cafayate. Our initial plan was to travel to Tilcara, but protests and road closures forced us to change plans last minute. Nick was very flexible with the many changes including an extra long delay of the arrival of our plane. On our drive he stopped at several spots so we could soak in the spectacular beauty and views on our way to Cafayete. When we got to the charming little town, Nick gave us many recommendations to explore. He also helped us find our favorite alphajores spot! We had a really wonderful time taking in the beauty, exploring wine, and traveling with Nick and Poncho Tours. Thank you for making our visit so memorable!

          Salta & Jujuy - a tour not to miss!
          Our tour with Rodrigo was outstanding. The sights were amazing, and we appreciated his knowledge, flexibility, and simpatico. Well worth the investment to have this personalized attention and schedule. Despite road closings at one point, we didn't miss a thing, thanks to Rodrigo's knowledge of the area. And Nick was a great help before the trip, helping us with accommodation suggestions and bookings, money exchange tips, and more. Highly recommend Poncho Tours!

          Great experience
          Very happy with our short trip with Poncho Tours. Nick collected us from the airport and talked us through the plan and then guide Nico was with us for the next two days. He made sure to stop everywhere we wanted for photos, explained about the plants & history and was happy for us to have an unscheduled stop to watch some young vicuña. Highly recommend!

          A super-organized tour company with a personal touch
          We had a wonderful experience with Poncho Tours. Co-owner Nick and guide/driver Rodrigo were extremely organized and very knowledgeable. The tour was customized to our tastes with a winery tour/tasting, llama trek and Train to the Clouds ride. Nick presented various options for lodging, and you could pick which ones fit your budget. Do not miss the curvy road trip to the 14-color mountain in the Serranía de Hornocal! I would highly recommend Poncho Tours to anyone traveling in northwestern Argentina.

          Wish I had booked an extra day in Jujuy!
          I requested a modification to the Salt and Seven Colours tour--to see the flamingos in the Quebrada del Toro in off-season. Although Nick's usual local guides weren't available, he scouted the route for me and did the tour himself. We were still able to see quite a few flamingos, and it was a beautiful and tranquil place. It would have been great to do the full four days so I could have had time to hike a bit of the Inca Trail, and spend more time in some of the other spots. Although the cost was a little higher than I had been expecting compared to other countries I've been to in the past, once I went on the tour, I could see the rough roads cause wear and tear on the vehicle, and the winding roads at high altitude could be tough on the driver. Lodging and food in the area costs very little, so it all evens out in the end. Alicia also did a Salta city tour with me. I wasn't feeling well that day, and she was patient with my slow pace. Because the hotels in the area don't offer laundry service, she accompanied me to the laundromat before and after the tour.

          Brilliant experience, and everything made so easy for us by Poncho Tours!
          We loved our tours with Nick - he made everything so straightforward for us so we were able to just sit back and enjoy the incredible scenery around the Salta region. The Inca trail hike was a particular experience we were very keen to have while in Argentina and we’re happy we found Nick to guide us. It was amazing to get off the beaten track from the more visited tourist attractions and to have a hike through the stunning mountain landscapes past several sites of Incan ruins. Nick also suggested adding a visit to the pre-Incan ruins at Tastil and we were really glad we saw these as well. We also enjoyed Nick’s company and the information he gave us about the area while we were exploring. We’d very happily book with Poncho Tours if/when we (hopefully!) come back to Argentina!

          An Exceptional Experience
          Our 4 day excursion from Salta to San Pedro de Atacama with Nick was exceptional! Before we even arrived to Salta, we felt well connected with Nick through all of our planning zoom calls and emails. Nick is truly passionate about his work and created a memorable journey from experiencing colorful Carnival, spectacular hikes, exceptional food, and his heart. Crossing the crazy border from Argentina to Chile was a breeze with Nick. Thank you for an unforgettable experience💕

          From Mendoza to Cafayate
          Nick was a great guide, he helped with the hotels giving me a couple to choose from for each of our 5 nights and then helped with the booking of them for me. My husband and I saw sights we'd never have known about to check out and he tailored the trip to our interests which I had given him ahead of time. Was able to ask questions the total time as we were driving from Mendoza to Cafayate, I have a much better understanding of Argentina and the culture now. He also gave us suggestions and tips for next few days as we traveled onwards to Salta, even though our time with him was over. Highly recommend Poncho Tours. R

          Northwest Argentina revealed
          Two weeks with Nick tracing route 40 was outstanding. No better guide to local/remote inns, restaurants and shops is possible. More than simply wonderful scenery, he provides insightful commentary to history, culture and flora/fauna. Eating empanadas, buying a salt llama, drinking chicha, watching flamingos or Spanish colonial religious paintings, climbing a 1920s railroad trestle ( built with civil engineer Tito!), wandering in small rural town squares, marveling at the friendly industrious Argentines, observing Bolivian smugglers, enjoying Cafayate Malbec, learning, learning. All in supportive care and direction of a friendly companion, Manchester’s own Nick Evans. Go with Poncho tours or don’t go.

        I booked a solo/private daytrip from Salta to Cafayate (and return) with Poncho Tours in December 2019. Mariano was my guide for the day and provided the tour in English. Mariano’s appreciation of wine culture made for great conversation, and provided very good insight into the region we visited. My interest was mostly in Torrontés, and Poncho Tours was flexible in recommending good options given we only had one-day.

        I got to visit 3 different vineyards for tastings, a mix of a bigger/more commercial one, to a smaller family run! A really good blend! Our first stop was Bodega El Esteco, with a bigger operation. The second stop was Bodega Burbujas de Altura, a smaller family run vineyards, where the owner himself spent almost 2 hours providing me insight into his production and did the tasting with me. This stop was definitively a highlight with more intimate visit, and their sparkling wine made from Torrontés grapes in the traditional method is a must try! The final stop was Bodega El Porvenir de Cafayate, where I got to try many different Torrontés: from the traditional one, to one fermented in oak barrels, to a sweeter version.

        Finally, the drive to/from Cafayate through the Quebrada de las Conchas was breathtaking, with stunning colourful vistas at every turn. We were able to stop at various points on route, to take in the view and for pictures. It makes for a very enjoyable drive!

        I would most definitively recommend booking with Poncho Tours for a tour tailored to your interest, with a knowledgable guide.

        We had an amazing trip with Nick from Salta, down to Cafayate. We visited great wineries both large and small, new and old with fantastic wines and had a great leisurely lunch. Nick also took time along the drive to stop at various landmarks and notable views, which turned what was a long drive into part of the experience. I wouldn't hesitate to book another trip with them again on our next trip!
