I went to Cachi with Nordic travel. Antonio was the driver and Angie was our guide. Angie spoke excellent English, very friendly and took good care of me! Thank you very much!

We did all the excursions with this company in both Salta and Iguazu and it was amazing and perfectly everything. Punctual, excellent guides and always predisposed to help in everything. Thank you for making us have a wonderful vacation. Greetings from England.

<p>This was a fantastic and memorable day. Our lovely guide Jeremy spoke English, French and Spanish so we were fine. We were impressed at the extent of his knowledge of the area: flora. fauna, geology, economics, history etc. The landscapes were really spectacular and Jeremy made sure we stopped at the most advantageous spots to take photos. Super lunch in Cachi at recommended restaurant La Esquina, where the quinoa risotto was delicious. Top tip: take plenty of layers and a sun hat: huge temperature range and really hot in Cachi. We loved this day.</p>

<p>Leo, our driver and Pablo, our guide made sure we got there and back safely and that we were informed of the history of the part of Salta Province we travelled through, as well as geological facts and facts that are local history. Pablo tried his best to keep us informed in Spanish as well as also catering for two French ladies in French.In Cachi he made sure we were served a simple and yet ample and delicious lunch. Pablo really made us feel we should see more, as there is so much more to see on RN 40 Ruta Nacional 40 . Nordic Travel is a company that I would highly recommend for any tours exploring the scenic beauty of Salta and Jujuy Provinces. They are professional and reliable. Thank you Leo and Pablo and my fellow excursionists, for most enjoyable day out in glorious nature.</p>

<p>The tour was excellent. A fairly large group and I was the only English speaking person on the trip. The guide was friendly and his English was very good. He had me sit up front so he could provide the commentary to me easily after he spoke to the others in Spanish. The scenery is spectacular and the stops and photo ops along the way were good.</p>

<p>This is a superb tour. It is a long day, but, worthwhile. <br/> The guide was excellent, with excellent English. There are many stops which are of a good duration.<br/> There are many good things to see and do on the tour and the price is very reasonable.<br/> The only minor problem with tours in the area is that there is no specific pick up time. You have to call up one or two days before to confirm the tour - which surely should be unnecessary since you have paid for it - and you are given a time between 7.00 and 7.40, which means you have to be ready a long time before pick up, especially since the buses tended to arrive late.</p>

Peter R

<p>Great tour. Highly professional and very informative guide. Lots of stops on the way up, with time to take photos. Comfortable bus, good price. As others have said: you might want to go eat lunch in Salta itself, say at one of the restaurants a few minutes walk down the main street itself -- though my parilla at the restaurant recommended by the guide was fine. As always in Argentina, not much concession is made to non-Spanish speakers though the guide's spanish was exceptionally clear, and could be understood with my limited spanish.</p>

A experiência com a Nordic foi horrível. Fui sozinha para a excursão e o guia simplesmente me esqueceu na segunda parada para Cachi, um local frio e nublado, mais conhecido como Cuesta del Obispo. A sorte é que consegui uma carona com a excursão de outra agência até a Nordic se dar conta do erro. É uma falha grave para uma empresa tão reconhecida.

Hoy fuimos con mi esposa y 2 hijos a realizar este tour y la verdad estuvo excelente. Tanto Martin el guía como Jorge el chófer tuvieron un muy buen trato y realmente hicieron del paseo una experiencia inolvidable tanto para los adultos como para los niños. Realmente es recomendable.
