I would highly recommend the 3 tours we completed with Luis and our two different drivers. Upon our return, we will be leaving good reviews of our experience on the internet in order to help inform other tourists.

What was your favorite part of the tour?.
The Colca Canyon was the highlight of the 3 tours. In speaking with Luis, we absorbed a lot of information and felt as if we were traveling more with a friend than a guide.

Was there anything about the tour that you didn’t like? Please feel free to go into as much detail as possible.
The tours were great. In our time in Peru, in Lima, Cusco, and Arequipa, Giardino were the best tours we had. My only complaint is that I wish we stayed 2-3 more days to enjoy the city and the outside regions.

How was the service of guide and driver?
Both drivers were excellent and professional. They were concerned with our overall safety and courteous. The vehicles were kept clean and comfortable. Luis was very engaged and observant of our needs. He was flexible with requests and often asked for feedback. His passion for teaching comes through easily. His English is also very good.

What else would you like us to know?
I’m sure we will return to Arequipa one day when I visit my mother country again. I will definitely be seeking Giardino for when we return!
