We only had 3 days in the Salta region so Nick helped us design the perfect itinerary. We flew in from Buenos Aires and Nick was waiting at the airport for us. He drove us to our hotel in Salta, gave us a map, and explained the highlights of the area. The next day, Mariano, picked us up at the... More

I had two excellent private day tours with Poncho starting from Salta in April 2017. It turns out that these excursions have been one of the highlights of my life with the discover of wonderful and colorful landscapes, desert valleys, canyons, mountains, forests and country sides. The English-speaking guide Mariano A. was simply perfect, with a deep knowledge of various... More

Salta was somewhere totally unknown to me until I came across Poncho Tours and Nick. Nick isn't even a hard salesman but the route he suggested just captured the imagination and it seemed so easy to get there from Buenos Aires for 4 nights. Salta was probably the highlight of 2 weeks in Argentina. We were so lucky with our... More

From the minute of initial contact to being met at the airport and going on our trip the process was seamless. Nick has great suggestions of what you can fit in to your days and will help plan your itinerary. He has a great source of knowledge, stacked full of information on local culture and history and his journalistic background... More

We traveled Northwest from Buenos Aires to visit the Salta & Jujuy Provinces. At first, hestitant with choosing a private or group tour, we figured that it would have been very time consuming & we wouldn't be able to see as much with a group tour. We decided to go with Poncho to show us around for 6 days. Although,... More

We were interested in seeing the wine region around Salta. NIck and I exchanged several emails and came up with the perfect itinerary. Gareth met us at the Salta airport and we spend the next 3 days touring the wine country and seeing the spectacular countryside. We had some reservations about having a driver/tour guide for several hours each day,... More

From Salta we travelled west into the Andes toward Cachi for lunch before driving south on highway 40. The Colomé winery was way out of the rural way and Garath, our tour guide, easily navigated the 4x4 over some exciting terrain. We drank Malbec (made with grapes grown onsite - the worlds highest altitude winery) then had the opportunity to... More

Nick worked with us to plan our three day trip and pick us up at the airport. Gareth gave us a tour of salta and then we headed up to tilcarra. Gareth completely looked after us while showing us the sights of the Humahuaca area. Tremendous service. Had a great 3 days with gareth.

Like many others we came across Poncho Tours via Google and got in touch due to the exceptional reviews. We are SO glad we did as we had been really struggling to narrow down what to see in the region when there was just so much. Nick was brilliant from the off. Patient with our questions, generous with his knowledge... More

We found Poncho tours on google and were impressed by their reviews. So, we sent some dates and direction of travel to Nick and Alisha. They sent accommodation options and a trip was organised. That easy! Nick was our guide, travel companion and interpreter. His extensive knowledge of the local culture, history, politics, food and geographical features only enhanced our... More
