Great tour. I also did the Cachi tour the day before, so had the same guide. He spoke good English and I sat at the front so he could provide the commentary to me in English after he had done it in Spanish. It would have been better if the admission to Picard de Tilcara was included in the price of the tour. The lunch spot where we stopped in Humahuaca was not great, but the guide did make a point of saying it was optional to eat there. The scenery is fantastic and the towns really provide the essential sense of history and culture.
really are amazing cult
