We chose to have a private tour around the Colca Canyon for 6 people. Let me start by saying that everything was amazing! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us the history of everywhere we went, starting in Arequipa.
He made sure that we didn\’t miss a thing! Our driver was equally impressive.
He was confident driving through Arequipa and then into the Canyon. We also enjoyed his little inputs at all of the stops. The beginning of the tour started out stressful. I had given the wrong dates when I made the booking, and didn\’t realize it until the morning I thought we were leaving. Karla helped us get everything figured out that morning and we were able to get on the road by lunch time.
I could not believe how accommodating they were. Thank you, thank you! We stayed at the Colca Lodge, and wow. Breathtaking. If you can stay here, definitely do. Our guide and driver weren\’t lying when they said we would want to stay longer. We started the next day bright and early so we could go watch the flight of the condors. Our tour guide knew the best place to see them and got us situated right along the edge of the viewpoint.
Everything was amazing! Great tour, great staff, and great views.
Couldn\’t have asked for anything better!
