The trip.me way of travel
The trip arrangement was well executed according to the itinerary. Accommodation and guide expertise were good. Mr Ezequiel was very responsive to our queries.
Well organised trip and all ran without hitches. Lorena very helpful with the initial planning and odd adjustment.
In early April we traveled through Salta and Jujuy in northern Argentina during a trip organized by Glenda's agency, which we booked on Trip.me. Our destination expert was Glenda. The planned itinerary developed like clockwork, the selected hotels were small and comfortable, most providing very good breakfast and dinner fare. The three of us (ages 74 to 79), traveled in a double cabin-pick up truck, with our guide and chauffer, Fernando, for ten days. Everything went smoothly, and Fernando was a prudent driver and knowledgable guide, providing interesting information about the history of the region, of Argentina colonial wars, the fauna and flora around us, the local customs, and the archeological settlings (Pucarás) of the ancient Aymaras. We spent some time in Salta and then visited the beautiful Calchaquí valley, crossing la Cordillera Oriental (the Easter mountain range) with amazing geological features. We then stayed in the town of Tilcara in Jujuy, where we visited a Pucará reconstructed by Argentinian archeologists, on a hill close to the town. From there we traveled to the Puna to visit the Salinas Grandes, and in our way back, the small town of Purmamarca. On another trip we visited the town of Humahuaca. The roads in the region are excellent. We felt safe all the time in the mountain roads, and did not suffer any symptoms of mountain sickness, even at more than 4,000 meters (about 13,000 feet). The landscapes were amazing, the people friendly, and the whole trip extremely enjoyable.Read More Read More Less
