This was a really great experience! I'm a solo female traveler and this was a good opportunity to meet others who are also visiting Salta. The guide spoke incredible english and spanish. The stops on our way to Cafayate were absolutely amazing. Every 5 mins or so there was a photo worthy landscape and we had amazing views at every curve of the road. There are no dull moments on the trip. I liked the size of the group (~16 people) as it made it easy to find others to talk to. I felt like we were given the perfect amount of time to explore Cafayate. The guide really made sure we all had the best experience and never felt rushed. The wine tasting is catered to an excursion group, meaning you'll enter a room and be offered to taste 3 wines.
The sights and scenery on his tour were amazing. Our main complaint was being up in the back seat, where there was not enough room for four people. The space was less as there was no gap between seats as in the other rows. It was an uncomfortable drive, and by the end of it we were all desperate to get off the bus. If you are picked up first you are lucky, you can choose better seats. I do not recommmd going to the suggested restaurant for lunch either, over priced and bland food.
Excellent day tour to Cachi. Our guide Jeremy was very knowledgeable and passionate, speaking both Spanish and English. The scenery on the drive is amazing and we stopped at several spots to look around and take photos. Cachi is a quaint town with nice lunch options. My only note is the seats on the bus don’t offer much legroom, but Jeremy and our driver did their best to accommodate my very tall husband. I recommend this tour!
Sergio was our guide for the day and made it a great experience. Picked up in a 16 seater Mercedes Sprinter which was comfortable, the tour was both in Spanish and English. Stopping at various photo points on route. Two hours in Cachi for lunch before returning home.
The guides were excellent, especially our English translator. Very knowledgable and explained everything as we went along. Always willing to take our photograph and tell us where the best places to eat were.
