We found Poncho tours on google and were impressed by their reviews. So, we sent some dates and direction of travel to Nick and Alisha. They sent accommodation options and a trip was organised. That easy! Nick was our guide, travel companion and interpreter. His extensive knowledge of the local culture, history, politics, food and geographical features only enhanced our... More

We spent three days in the Salta area and wish it could have been more. Luckily for us, we engaged Nick and Alicia Evans of Poncho Tours to guide us. Nick took us up into the Andes to see the beautiful, colored mountains - spectacular!!! - and tell us about the history and culture of northwest Argentina. When an unexpected... More

My friend and I wanted to explore the Salta Province in northwestern Argentina. We were frustrated with responses from three tour agents as they did not listen to our wishes and instead tried to convince us that their “canned” tours were right for us. Then we found Poncho Tours and the owner, Nick, who is an ex-pat living in Salta.... More

I was recommended Poncho tours six years ago and when the opportunity came to visit Argentina contacted Nick. We had a Skype call to discuss options and agreed a 3 day Salt & Seven Colours trip, with overnight stops in Tilcara and Susques. Nick also recommended and booked a hotel in Salta, picked me up from the airport and gave... More

I contacted Nick from the UK (just on the basis of his website) to get ideas for a 2 day whistlestop tour from Salta. Of the various options he sent by email, we settled on going north to the Salinas Grandes. I was of course worried what it would be like, but I need not have! Nick arranged for Gareth... More

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...
