Salta, Cafayate, & Tucuman - Tour Extension

Take this 8-day tour from Salta to Tucuman, taste wines in Cafayate, & visit Tucuman. This tour also includes Pumamarca & its vibrantly-hued Hill of Seven Colors, the archaeological treasures in Tilcara and Pucará, and a city tour of Tucuman. We highly recommend adding on the train from Tucuman to Buenos Aires; it is a comfortable, and scenic train ride (albeit 22 hours long), perfect for train enthusiasts. Please note that the Tucuman-Buenos Aires train should be booked in advance, due to its popularity.

Note: This is a tour extension, combine this tour with one of our full package tours.
