We took this trip in May 2018. It was an amazing tour. Very well organized from hotel pickups to drop offs. Our guide was very well informed on all the places we visited. It was a small bus tour group with about 15 people. The entire Colca Canyon region is very scenic. We visited all the places that were promised in the tour. Overall a very pleasant experience. I would highly recommend it.
We were picked up from our hotel by Carlos who was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. The Colca lodge is not the top luxury resort it claims to be, be careful. We had an extra day at Colca lodge to recuperate from the long trip. We saw the condors, the trip to Puno is long !
Great trip blessed with the most beautiful sunset with smoking volcanoe as well. Loved it!
The tour was amazing, the guide and the driver are really kind, helpful and did try their best to make the trip as comfortable and as enjoyable as they could. I'm not rating 5 starts because we had some issues regarding our embarking on the bus which was a bit stressful. Our guide stayed with us until the issues were resolved, still I was expecting a smooth, problem-free tour. I still recommend this tour to anyone who's spending some time in this amazing country.
