Trip Advisor review Poncho’s tours: We had 4 days with Poncho tours – driver and guide was Mariano in August 2016. It was fantastic. The price was well worth it for the reduction in stress and increased enjoyment we had, compared to if we had tried to hire a car and drive ourselves. We would not have been able to... More

After complications with our plans, I called Poncho Tours only a couple weeks before arriving in Salta. Nick could not have been more accommodating!! He arranged two full day tours - even though one fell on a major holiday - the 200th anniversary of Argentina's independence! Mariano arrived bright and early. He is clearly one of the most knowledgable guides... More

Nick met us at the airport and introduced us to Salta, then the next day Gareth picked us up and off we went...up into the mountains: Quebrada de Humahuaca, overnighting... More

Did 2 day tours with Poncho Tours and just wished we'd had more time to do another! From the off Nick was super informative and helpful, guiding us on the best tours for our limited time. He even picked us up from the airport for free. We did both of our tours with Gareth, who was a total legend. He... More

6 days with Nick in the Quebradas and high Puna was worth every minute. The mix of landscape, geology, history, people and wildlife is an eye-opener. Take extra days, don't rush, be prepared for altitude, bring your cameras, don't expect 5-star hotels and enjoy the comfort of simple adobe, and appreciate that you are following in the footsteps of many...

We had a great trip with Poncho Tours. Nick helped us organise a 4 day trip that showed us the highlights of the Salta area. He recommended hotels and booked them for us - and picked us up at the airport when we arrived. We spent the weekend looking around Salta and then got picked up by Jed (our 'Kiwi'... More

Nick provided us with outstanding opportunities to shoot video on trips north of Salta to the Quebrada de Humahuaca and southward to the red rock landscapes and vineyards near Cafayate. His knowledge of the region combined with his experience as a documentary video producer to make him a wonderful travel companion as well as a guide and driver. We highly... More

...but you can definitely do so on this occasion where Poncho Tours are concerned! I read many of the reviews on Poncho Tours prior to contacting them. My correspondence with Nick was also reassuring because his responses were timely and informative. A 5 night itinerary was worked up, perfectly tailored to the time I had available and the areas in... More

Right from the first email from Nick at Poncho Tours we had the feeling that we were in good hands. We had only a vague idea about what we wanted to do in northwest Argentina and he was able to make some suggestions which, after some discussion (including a Skype chat), led to us agreeing a plan. We went for... More
