It's because of the overall experience that I rate this as an average.
The sites and the scenery are fantastic but the co-ordination by Tiamar that turned this from a good tour to a less than average tour.
We were the last to be picked up which means we were waiting for 45 minutes which is okay cause someone has to be last.
The downside is that we end up with the last two seats on the bus, back seat with two well built british lads, just not enough room for the four of us. So on a 13 hour trip where a fair amount of time is spent in the bus one person had to lean forward as that was the only way we would fit.

Simple fix, Tiamar, don't overbook the tour, or don't have staff take their family when the tour is fully booked.
Suggestion to people considering this tour, don't book weekends

We booked 2 tours online with Tiamar Travel, from the outset the communication was excellent, with them confirming our hotel and tour details while we were still at home. Once we arrived in Salta the agent contacted me via WhatsApp to confirm tour details and pick up times. The pick up was on time and a well organsied group. The locations visited were enjoyable but can been seen with any tour agent, what made Tiamar stand out was our guide 'Eva' who worked for both of our day tours, for a full 12hrs each day she was full of energy and enthusiasm , her English was excellent, and despite only us being English speakers on one of the tours she still fully explained everything to us, I don't know how she can work such long days with such a rapport with the guests. From first booking to final drop off Tiamar travel and their tour guide were faultless, it would be difficult to find a tour group more competent than we experienced.

We took two full day tours (Salinas Grandes and the Cafayate Wine tour) from Salta. We wrote to Eziquel and he was helpful and prompt in his replies and clarified any needs we had.

Pickup in the morning came at about 7.30am, so on time but unfortunately we got rather poor seats for the Salinas Grandes tour as it was already rather full by the time it arrived at our hotel. Nonetheless, the tours were great and Eva and Santiago explained all the sites in detail with ample photo stops.

For their Cafayate tour, Santiago had a great understanding of geology and biology and could explain the rock formations of the Calchaqui valley very well. The wine tour in essence was just an excuse to go through the Calchaqui valley, but the tasting was great too (although only explanation in Spanish but it’s rather self explanatory) - we went to Quara. There was free choice of lunch in Cafayate.
Tiamar was also kind enough to drop us at the airport as we had a flight after the tour (we reache about 19.00 for a 20.50 flight).

For the Salinas Grandes tour we had a good stop at the salt lakes and Eva was meticulous and took extra effort to ensure our safety. This is especially important as the high altitudes mean that you could get a headache.

Separately For lunch for the Salt lake tours, the restaurant was San Antonio de los Cobres was mediocre, but I guess it happens as it’s a small place that only sees tour groups.

This is a really good day. The highlights are deff the rock formations which are stunning. The wine tasting is more just a sip of wine to try and get you to buy a bottle. The day is worth it for seeing the rock formations though.

fun tour! the guide was so lovely, she was really sweet and friendly and very knowledgable. little frustrating as, it says tour starts at 7 so we were outside waiting and they werent there, so we called them, someone answered right away but said they would be here about 8am. this was kind of annoying to us as we could have had an extra hour in bed. our hostel receptionist knew they would be here at 8am, and said they never come for 7. so why say that they do! anyway, apart from that - the drive to cafayate is about 3 hours but we stopped off lots on the way and the lady explained about the rocks and made it very interesting. she spoke fantastic english! and her daughter is so cute!! the winery was good and the wine was delicious. we were a littttttle disappointed as when we arrived, there wasnt an english speaking guide which is what we paid for, so i didnt understand anything about how the wine was made, but was lots to look at so was still kind of interesting. we tasted a malbec (yum!) and a rose (also yum!) - i thought that cafayate was known for its white wine grapes (i may have misunderstood this when the lady was explaining) so was little dissapointed we didnt try a white as was hoping for more than 2 tasting (although, the lady topped up my red wine twice! mmm :)) we also got to hang out and have lunch (own expense) in cafayate for 2 hours which was nice. all in all, a very good day out and worth the money (just not 100% for us due to the winery, i wish we could speak spanish!) lovely guide, and beautiful beautiful scenery with lots of photo ops!!!
