“Instead of taking the train to the clouds,that was not circulating in this periode of the year”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

We were there in december and the train of the clouds was not working, so we had a private guided tour that Say Hueque organized for us with a local company , Bellaggio. The car was excelent, 4x4,and the driver and guide, Santiago ,fabolous.It was quite a rainy week and the roads are quite dangerous during the rain because of the falling stones, so we did not made the whole way, only 2/3 of it. Beautiful nature,and in the end I appreciate it more than the train, as the road is going parallel to the rail, but you do not have all the galleries,and you overlook the train rail and the fabulous bridges the train is passing. Anyhow, I would not reccomand doing this trip without an experienced driver that knows the road and wether / road conditions.

“What a ride!”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

We did this tour in combination to an overnight stay in Purmarca and then following day tour to Humahuaca. Many of the roads on this tour are quite rough so if bouncing around in a vehicle is a problem for you it might not be enjoyable. It's also a very long day and you are at altitudes up to 14,000 feet at two points so bring some aspirin. Our guide Rami was wonderful and kept us fully informed and entertained. This tour really give you a sense of Argentina's "outback" and some of the history of the region before and after the Spanish conquest. I would definitely recommend this tour.

“Do it all in one day!”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

We only had 3 days in Salta and wanted to see Purmamarca and the Salinas Grandes.
This excursion, although long, met our needs perfectly. The guide was bilingual and entertaining. They provided snacks, lunch and beverages. Even gluten free alfajores for me! They were responsive to our e-mails and overall we enjoyed the experience tremendously. We met interesting people on the tour, had opportunities to shop and experience a totally different way to see an amazing part of Northern Argentina. I loved the downhill part of the trip when we were standing on our seats with our heads outside the top of the vehicle!!! Priceless!!!!
