The day was long but worth it! Seeing the salt flats was by far the highlight! Seeing the vast changes in scenery was amazing! The driver was very professional and did a really good job driving the very windy roads while our guide did a great job dealing with everyones personalities and always knew the answers to the many questions that came her way! One thing to know, take cash! The small towns we went to do not take credit cards. Argentine pesos only!!!
