We did three tours with them and were surprised by the lack of professionalism and knowledge of the guides. They said a couple of things on the bus but never explained anything when we stopped at the sights. Even though everyone is free to do whatever they want during the lunch break, the guides took us to the place where they had a deal and said 'we are going to have lunch here' (meaning everyone). The food was bad. We only made the mistake of staying with the group the first day. And the other days, the guides were not happy we left. There were long coffee breaks we did not need; travellers would rather spend more time on the places we come to see. The itinerary is also not clear and there were a few places we wanted to see (and were told we would see) but the bus did not stop. The places you visit are beautiful, but really they could make the experience so much better. I would not recommend them to anyone.

I travel since 15 years and never experienced such a bad travel agency. We booked 2 tours, both tours have been cancelled or postponed - with late or no information in advance. The service was extremely bad, the owner completely unfriendly. In the end we could make at least the 2nd tour, otherwise the payment we made in advance of 1.000 Peso would have got lost (respectively receiving a voucher). We filed a complain at the Ministry of Tourism.

WoW! We did the Salta - San Antonio - Salar - Purmamarca circuit and we enjoyed every minute of it! Martin the guide (Evolution) is brilliant, as the only non-Spanish speakers in the transit, he paid a lot attention to us and kept us informed the entire day trip. Fernando the driver should be recognized as well for driving over 12h in high altitude- was perfect. The tour itself is amazing and very diverse, starting parallel to the train tracks, climbing high while chewing Coca, enjoying San Antonio's local cuisine, picturing at the Salar and staring at the 7 colors hill - wonderful day to remember. Thank you!

Both tours were well run. I was picked up from my hostel on time. Buses were clean and comfortable.
The guides speak in both English and Spanish. They make a real effort to talk about the area and answer any questions people had.
My favorite was Cafayate as the landscape is truly amazing.
Overall i would recommend this agency to anyone looking for some interesting day trips.

I have read some negative reviews and want to say our experience was great. Our first trip was to Cafayate and only booked 12 hours ahead. The bus was comfortable and yes it was a long trip but made more interesting by the guide who spoke in English and Spanish and told us lots about the environment and history. We did stop at designated places but it appeared all the other buses did also. It wasn't a big deal and we had plenty of opportunities for photos. The night before the second trip to Humahuaca the tour operator phoned and asked if we could change our dates due to Im unsure if it was an overbooking or and underbooking. We said we couldn't and this didn't seem to be a problem. I think he may have put us with another company but needless to say the trip went ahead. I felt this day was a bit more rushed and we only had a brief stop at Purmamarca-I would have liked longer. But once again the guide was great and the scenery spectacular. For all those that say you have to do a certain lunch etc. We didn't. There was no pressure to do so and we didn't take a walking tour around Humahuaca but explored by ourselves. The bus did break down but the driver resolved the problem and it gave us more time to look around. I have no problems recommending this company. They delivered what they said that would and in a friendly manner. The price was reasonable. Sometimes things don't go to plan but that's all part of the adventure
