What you can expect
Go for a cruise through a sea of clouds and catch gorgeous views of the Tucumán province on this driving tour. Seated in a vintage 1929 Ford A Phaeton, visit Yerba Buena, San Javier Hill, and Villa Nougués to see spectacular vistas and learn about the gorgeous region.
Just outside your hotel, climb into a beautiful fully restored vintage 1929 Ford A Phaeton, whose classic aesthetic has been well-preserved. Begin the drive out of the city, traveling toward the mountains through the luxurious residential city of Yerba Buena. Your chauffeur, who also acts as guide, takes you up San Javier Hill, pointing out beautiful views of the region as you climb.
Soon, pass through a misty sea of clouds that surrounds the mountain and shrouds your journey with a sense of mystery. As you emerge on the other side, the mountain seems like a completely different place, offering broad views of all of Tucumán below you. Drive through San Javier village and arrive at charming Villa Nougués, situated at 4,450 feet (1,350 m) above sea level.
Snap pictures of the settlement's Norman architecture and beautiful views before heading back to Tucumán. In the city, ride past and learn about historic sites like the San Martin Theater and Plaza Independencia square before celebrating your journey with champagne and returning to your hotel.
