    Essentially the tour that I thought I booked was not what I received. But it was still such a beautiful place and decent drive. The approximately 2 hour stop in Purmamarca was long enough to visit the market and walk around after lunch. The guide Martin was fairly knowledgeable but sometimes spent too much time on tangential topics to the local scenery and history.

    On the page of the tour it clearly states that the tour is limited to 15 people to make it a 'personalized experience'. I purchased this tour in part for this very reason. What I received was a large bus with AT LEAST 30 people. When I asked the tour guide he stated that no the tours were always that big. Very disappointed. Especially Considering that the day prior I was on a different tour my other Viator booking, and same description of 15 people or fewer and it was perfect, and was driven in a small van 15 people, and half the price!.

    I found the tour's description of the destinations somewhat exaggerated. Humahuaca is clearly stated in the title description along with Salinas grandes and purmamarca. We visited all except humahuaca. How can you consider the three equal as in the title? This maybe works for a while as a marketing tool but the next person will hopefully be more informed after reviews come in.

    This tour is amazing! The tour guide Jeremy and Fabian were exquisite, they explained everything a bout the mountains and the salinas, took their time providing incredible info. The scenery is just indescribable, your drive through the mountains that have so many colors.
    the altitude wasn't a problem for me, but diffidently could feel it a bit, just recommend taking it easy. Would definitely recommend this tour!

    The tour definitely delivers on its promise. It is a great value, considering the length of the drive. It is also a 'must do' if you are in Salta region. The scenery is absolutely breath taking. The guide was informative and spoke good English. I really admired the drivers patience to navigate the roads. I wish we had more time in Purmamarca to enjoy it's beauty we had 2 hours of which 1 hour was spent on lunch in a local restaurant. I would recommend staying overnight if you are not pressed for time.

    The tour was great! The tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable. The route is beautiful and scenic so even if most time is spent on the bus, it gives you the chance to absorb the changing landscape and the information provided by the tour guide. Highly recommended.

    This is a 'must do' if you are in the Salta region. It is a long day, but well worth it. Our guide spoke excellent English and was very inclusive with his commentary. The scenery is absolutely breath taking. We even got to try cocoa leaves as we climbed in altitude nearly 4200m!
