It was amazing, and well worth the price. If you’re traveling and want to see some great sights with little to no hiking , this is the trip for you. We had a small group I was the only one really in need of an English speaking tour and he took plenty of time to make sure I got the full experience. There was a free breakfast of coffee, tea, bread, and juice. I bought the ticket which included lunch and entrance to colca canyon park I saved more money that way. All the guests were super friendly too, I can speak some Spanish but definitely not enough. I highly recommend it. I believe my guide was Juan and Edwin was our driver and he did an excellent job.

Very demanding excursion, starting at 3 am and returning late in the evening. Bus journey of at least 6 hours. The landscapes are splendid but unfortunately the stop at the Mirador dei Condor lasted only 40 minutes. Some other stops should be avoided and more time given to the main stop. The guide was however very clever, with clear and comprehensive explanations both in Spanish and in English. Buffet lunch quite good.

A must know you are on Arequipa

A tiring but essential day if you venture to Arequipa. On the other hand, we strongly advise against the booking via GetYourGuide, the price paid having been triple of other prices practiced for the same activity. I can understand a differential of 10 to 15%, but 200% more expensive, it is not acceptable!
