Wonderful! Very cool experience to visit the Salt Flats and unlike anything we have done before. The town of Purmamarca is very small - our guide had a great recommendation Kuntur (sp?) for lunch. As a heads up, it is a very long drive both directions - definitely takes the entire day. Would recommend the tour to anyone visiting the area.

A bit rushed, I would have preferred to stay 10 minutes longer at each stop and come back later in the evening. Especially at lunchtime in Purmamarca there was relatively little time (less than 2 hours) considering how long it usually takes to eat in a restaurant in Argentina. You could then only walk to a vantage point for a short time, and then the time was almost over. There was no more time for the stalls on the market. Unfortunately, I found the recommended restaurant only mediocre, so on the next tour I looked for something myself. But the information from the guide was good, and in both Spanish and English. Unfortunately, the seat on the bus was very uncomfortable as soon as you buckled up, they seem to be more suitable for children. Pickup worked as advertised (between 7am and 7:45am), it would have been nice to narrow down the time slot the night before. Overall good.

The guide was really lovely and the sites were nice. However, you have to pay entrance for the Salinas and the 7 color hill viewpoint which disappointed me as the price for the tour was already so steep. We also lost the group in Purmamarca and wandered around for over an hour in the heat without being able to find anyone or the tour van. I think with a few tweaks, this tour could be really great.
