it was a very good tour. prepared and attentive guide. good transport van with responsible driver. The only confusing thing was lunch as the group was separated into two different restaurants and we later learned that one was simpler than the other. we stayed in the simplest one where the food was a buffet with few hot options. Many tours arriving at the same time, which did not give staff time to replace all items. But the quality of the food was good. , The vegetables were very fresh.

Excellent tour, very good service from our guide Jonathan, very attentive and attentive to everything, and above all very good explanations. Very punctual service, they picked us up at the agreed time at the agreed point. The included buffet lunch is good in general, although you have to pay an additional 12 soles for drinks.
