Full description
After departing from central Salta, head south into the stunning, red-tinged lands of rock formations and towering cliffs. The trip begins south of the province, where you’ll soak up some local culture by visiting the historic villages of the Lerma Valley. Afterwards, head to the Quebrada de las Conchas, a canyon of curiously shaped rocks, eroded for centuries by water flow and strong winds. Marvel at the complex rock formations within the ravine, from the Devil’s Throat, to the Amphitheater, to The Castles, among many other spectacular displays. After a thorough exploration, head to Cafayate to visit a vineyard to taste some of the best wines that the region has to offer, including Torrontés. After the tasting, you’ll head back to Salta through the Quebrada de las Conchas.

The service was great! The Guilhermo Guide very attentive and friendly and with a lot of cultural and historical knowledge of the region. Driver drove very safely Negative point is the tasting place. The cellar is very simple, the wines served were very weak and the good ones (which are what Brazilians want to taste to take to Brazil) are not available for tasting. The guy who explained about each wine spoke very softly, it was impossible to hear it and served less than a glass of wine, totally outside the tasting standards of Argentina, Chile and other destinations. I found this cellar with poor service.

Excellent excursion and very attentive guide. My criticism is that they were not punctual in the collection, a half hour late. The bus was not very clean. For the price and the tour I totally recommend it. The company always made contact and quickly answered the communications. It is a beautiful excursion

They were punctual for picking up from the hotel. The guide spoke both Spanish and English, and described step by step what we saw or what we would see. It was a wonderful experience, I never thought of seeing such places ... The caves along the road to CAFAYATE are extraordinary. I consider it an experience to do both for the good wine that gratified us on arrival and for the magnificent places that characterizes this beautiful land.
