Day Tours from Salta

Spirit offer day tours from Salta in both privately guided vehicles or as group day tours from Salta in minibus.
Contact us for a quote for a private tour or for a group tour from Salta, make your reservation online right here.
After many requests, we offer an overnight tour to Salinas Grandes and the Humahuaca Gorge by combining the two day tours and detailing your drop off/pick up requirements.
We also now offer an extended stay visit to Cafayate-simply purchase two Cafayate day tours and advise us of the dates required for drop off and pick up – it’s that simple and offers more comfort with flexibility than the public bus service which makes no stops in the Quebrada de las Conchas – one of the world’s great drives.
As we come into high season, be sure to book early for tours in late December, January and February.
Minibus tours run every day of the year apart from December 25 and January 1.

Deb-Testimonial

Tracy knew so much about Argentina’s history, politics, food, local insights, geology, everything. She’s a good person and quite passionate about sharing the region.  And her experience as a photographer means you’ll get to some of the best vantage points for photos. Again, can’t recommend Tracy Johnson enough, she’s fantastic

Hilary-Testimonial

One other key point: Tracy is superb at planning a trip that is right for you and your family or group. During the planning stage, my wife and Tracy exchanged probably a dozen emails, with Tracy laying out possible itineraries and discussing things we’d like to do. The end result was a trip that was perfectly planned for us, from pick-up at Salta airport to the drop-off six days later.
