Hills, Valleys & Canyons, the Inca trail

From a tourist point of view, Northwest Argentina has yet to be discovered. The best way to travel in this region is to stop whenever one's attention is attracted by something that calls for admiration. Be enraptured by a sunset on a multicolored hill, be bewitched by the musical sentimentality of an erke, contemplate the uniqueness of a sky full of stars, bright and striking, admire the capricious shapes and variations of colors of the enormous rock.

Andrea is very thorough, and strives to accommodate your every need. She can tailor your experience to whatever you desire for the most fabulous trip. I wanted a very non-touristy experience, and Andrea was so very helpful in ensuring I had the best accommodations, the perfect tours, and friendliest of people for all of my interactions; from the pick up at the airport, to the private tour, to the hotel, to the delivery back to the airport - everything was beautifully arranged, and worked out perfectly!
