In December 2019 my wife and I, along with two friends, were treated to an an amazing three day trip around northern Salta Province followed by a more extended six day trip to the south of the province. I say treated because we were in the extraordinarily capable hands of Five Senses Salta.    We were taken to a number of fascinating villages where we shopped and dined and also listened to some wonderful ethnic music. We traversed some of the most amazing and varied landscapes - multi coloured rocky valleys, vast open desert plains of cactus and blasted twisted rock formations, ancient native settlements, lush vineyards and river valleys and at one point a seemingly endless salt plain.    The hotels we stayed in were top class - a delight to arrive at and we were always sad to leave - but the road beckoned.    We travelled in two separate cars which were very comfortable. Given the often demanding road conditions, our drivers were more than up to the task and as guides were full of interesting and relevant information.    The trip was part of a more extended visit to South America, including Lima and Machu Picchu in Peru. This part of the trip was also organised via Five Senses contacts based in Lima. We definitely enjoyed the trip of a lifetime with Five Senses. It was easy to communicate with Gareth and his team, who always responded quickly to any questions and tailored the trip to meet our needs in every respect. Airport and hotel pick ups were efficient, cars and drivers of the highest quality and rest days built in to our itinerary. Can’t recommend Salta Province and Five Senses highly enough. Thanks to all.

The most incredible (14 hour) day exploring the 14 colour mountain, Humahuaca, Salinas Grandes, Cerro de los Siete Colores and Purmamarca, eating llama and salt direct from the salt flats along the way. Gareth booked in our tour very swiftly (despite us only enquiring about it a couple of weeks in advance!) and Alejandro, our guide on the day, was absolutely brilliant! He was tireless, really friendly and knowledgeable and ensured we got exactly what we wanted out of the tour. It was absolutely worth every cent and we will certainly be recommending this to anyone we know who is visiting the Salta region.

Our bespoke tour included Peru as well as North and South Salta Province, Argentina. The Peru visit was based around Cusco and The Sacred Valley, including Machu Picchu. The itinerary was tailor made to our personal requirements as a small group of four friends. TRANSFERS and TRANSPORT Whilst Five Senses Travel is based in Argentina, they organised the Peru section with their partners at Condor Travel, Peru. Private transfers were arranged at both Lima and Cusco airports and good advice given in taking taxis at Buenos Aires for transfer to and from the hotel. The tour managers were polite, friendly and very efficient. They took all the stress out of travelling by providing us with the necessary entrance tickets to sites as well as being our guides. Thank you Condor Travel for helping to make a memorable trip. ACCOMMODATION We asked for mid range hotels in both countries and were delighted with all of them. Five Senses had certainly done their homework and came up with a mix of heritage hotels and lodges with the wow factor and away from the beaten track. In Argentina, we went on two road trips, first to the north of Salta Province and then the south. Our guides’ expert knowledge of the area was a bonus; one day we were taken off track to visit a weaver who worked on an archaic loom, producing textiles which won her an award at national level. On another, they sought out the best place to see the elusive condor. Every day was a voyage of discovery. We learnt so much about both countries.Thank you Five Senses for a holiday that will live long in the memory.

I contacted 5 Senses earlier this year to arrange a 9-day photographic trip of the upper northwest region of Argentina, and everything was great. It was very easy to communicate with Gareth at Five Senses and he was very helpful in ensuring that certain of our accommodations were confirmed. Five Senses put together an itinerary very quickly and, truthfully, since I was unfamiliar with the area I made only one small change; in other words, I just had to trust that the tour would be what I was looking for and it was. We visited some of the more familiar towns for tourists and, just as importantly, we visited some much smaller towns (populations of 200 and 600 people). If you really want to photograph an area you really need to make more than one visit, so this trip was about seeing the lay of the land just as much as shooting some beautiful scenery (and now I have some ideas of what I'd do on a return visit). Our guide, Gonsalvo (sp?), has worked with photographers before so any of my photographer eccentricities didn't faze him. The trip was fantastic. The scenery was one impressive site after another, and we went far off the normal tourist paht. Now, if you're going to travel for 9-day it certainly helps that you get along with your guide/driver, and we were fortunate to have Gonsalvo because he was an excellent driver whether the terrain was the smooth part of Route 40 or an unnamed back road overlooking a steep drop. His 4x4 was spacious and comfortable (and many of the roads we traveled could not be traversed in anything other than a 4x4), and his personality engaging and helpful. He always asked if we needed water or some other liquid, and had suggestions about things to see and do (even though we were low-maintenance travelers (at least I think so!) he always seemed open to our questions/suggestions). For me, there was tremendous value in having a guide knowledgeable about the area and, should a problem have arisen, a guide able to summon assistance via Five Senses no matter where we happened to be. Did we get lucky by having Gonsalvo (yes)? Would another guide have been just as good (I'd hope so)? He seemed to know someone everywhere we stopped and always made sure we were checked in and settled at each stop, and let any food preparer know that I don't like cheese :-) So, when I make it back to this part of the world -- or plan a trip to Bolivia or Patagonia or Chile -- I'll make plans using Five Senses.

We had an awesome time with 5 Senses Traveller and our guide Eduardo. We had originally planned the trip with Gareth who was super helpful in answering our questions and suggesting things to see/do. Gareth was also brilliant in helping when we had to adjust our itinerary due to a flight schedule change. Eduardo our guide, a Salta native, was full of information, good fun and totally happy to adjust the itinerary if we wanted to spend more/less time somewhere, which was much appreciated. If we ever make it back to Northern Argentina, I’d definitely contact Five Senses to see what other awesome locations they could show us.
