Grea experience,
It did not satrt very well, we had one hour delay, it seem they had overbooking and 25 minutes after we left, we had to go back to pock up 4 more passengers. We ere told than vehicle was not in good condition to go to a mountains zone.
The oaces we visited are beautiful, nice smal towns, we tried Pastes in Mineral del Monte, delivery delicios,
La hacienda de Santa Maria Regla was beautiful also.
The best part of all were the Basaltic Prisms, its amazing!

This was a good day trip, Our Guide Daniel was very good. The firs stop at the British cemetery is a bit long but it Huasca de Ocampo is great and worth the trip alone.
