Just finished the 3 day colca canyon trek. It was an amazing experience and Angie our guide was so knowledgeable about the canyon and the local area, she told us all about the nearby wildlife and about how the local people lived. Angie was the best guide for this tour and had ensured everything I ate was safe due to my food allergy which made it that much more enjoyable.This tour was excellent value and doing it over 3 days allowed us to relax and enjoy the area.

We had an amazing time with Frank (our Tourguide) and the whole group! The landscape at our hike was beautiful and Frank told us much about how the landscape was build and the history of the colca valley. The food and the accommondations were very good and we enjoyed every second of this tour! We highly recommend the three day tour (2 nights), because you have more time to see and enjoy the places (or the pool at the second accommondation). Also it's more relaxed and you don't feel too exhausted during the hikes. Enjoy your trip!

We were with Carlos Hilacondo during these 3 days of trek. He is an adorable person, who takes the time to make people discover his canyon (stories, fruits…). He adapts according to the level of the people and knows how to be patient and also attentive. We highly recommend Carlos for all of this. If we had to do it again we would do it with him for sure

I debated some time as to whether I wanted to write this review because I think these businesses have had it hard.

That said, I would recommend another tour company. Here's why:
1. The bus from Arequipa is a very early bus, temperatures get down to near freezing. Nobody warned us, the tour company refused to turn up the heat. So you had a bus that was going through freezing temperatures at 4 AM for hours on end. It was torture.
2. Our tour guide was an alcoholic who complained they didn't get enough sleep the previous night. But on our last day he partied really hard and didn't get enough sleep so I'm pretty sure it's self inflicted. When I say he was an alcoholic, I mean he hit on the women from other tours, fed one of our groups meals to a dog, and after playing with the dog started touching my face/hair with the grease/dog saliva. It took me forever to just get a straight answer as to what time we'd need to get up in the morning because he was so drunk.
3. We paid more for hot water. We didn't get it. A part of me wonders if the tour guide took the premium we paid and spent it on alcohol.
4. He claimed to be injured (possible), so we didn't get to do a route that would have been nice.

The tour guide mentioned how much he made, which wasn't a whole lot. I'm fairly certain he drank some significant portion if not all his earnings while we were with him.

I feel the business is difficult, the guides have it kind of hard, but wow, I really would not recommend this business to anyone.

This comment is very sad for each member of the company and in general for the company itself. We have been putting a lot on our part, so that each traveler has a pleasant experience during their visit to the Colca Canyon. The truth is that due to the pandemic, if all of us who are dedicated to tourism have had a very bad time, it has not taught us to value our work, for this reason we see a bad comment with great sadness and concern. But anyway, thank you very much for writing to us. Point 1.- Our departure time is at 3:30 in the morning, if it is early, but it is the best time to enjoy all the attractions of the Colca Canyon. Now it is possible to make a tour tailored to your needs, but it would be in private, here we could vary the start time, but logically it would be 3 to 4 times the price of the tour that we manage in shared. To climb a mountain or do a tour with a hike of more than one day, we have to be physically and mentally prepared. Since we will enjoy beautiful views, the sun and the cold of nature. Point 2.- We would have liked to know the name of the guide, in the comment you do not mention his name, we have made the inquiries, with all our guides and the accommodations with which we work and we have not found an incident like the one you mention, of anyway, we made a meeting to avoid a possible or future situation. Point 3.- The places where we do the walk are places far from car access, there are no luxuries, but we do try to give them the greatest possible comfort. In the accommodations inside the canyon there are two types of rooms, some rustic (basic with the bathroom outside) and other rooms that are good (private bathroom) very comfortable, but with limited capacity, there is not much availability. We recommend buying the tour directly with us, at our office or on the web, since some hotels sell our products, but it is best to buy it directly to have more detailed and precise information. Point 4.- The landscape during the tour is very beautiful. It is not possible to ignore any view. Atte. OASIS PALMERAS TRAVEL Apena mucho este comentario a cada integrante de la empresa y en general la empresa misma. venimos poniendo mucho de nuestra parte, para que cada viajero tenga una experiencia agradable en su visita al cañón del colca. La verdad por la pandemia si la hemos pasado muy mal todos lo que nos dedicamos al turismo, no ha enseñado a valorar nuestro trabajo, por este motivo vemos con mucha tristeza y preocupación un mal comentario. Pero de todos modos muchas gracias por escribirnos Punto 1.- Nuestro horario de salida es a las 3:30 de la mañana, si es temprano, pero es el mejor horario para poder disfrutar de todos los atractivos del cañon del colca. Ahora es posible hacer una gira a la medida de sus exigencias, pero seria en privado, aquí podriamos variar la hora de inicio, pero logicamente seria 3 a 4 veces el precio de la gira que manejamos en compartido. Para subir a una montaña o hacer una gira con caminata de más de un día, tenemos que estar preparados física y mentalmente. Ya que disfrutaremos de hermosas vistas, del sol y del frio de la naturaleza. Punto 2.- nos hubiera gustado saber el nombre del guía, en el comentario no mencionas su nombre, hemos hecho las averiguaciones, con todos nuestros guías y los alojamientos con los que trabajamos y no hemos encontrado un incidente como el que nos comentas, de todos modos, hicimos una reunión para evitar una posible o futura situación. Punto 3.- los lugares donde hacemos la caminata, son lugares distantes al acceso de carros, no hay lujos, pero si tratamos de darles la mayor comodidad posible. en los alojamientos dentro del cañón hay dos tipos de habitaciones unas rusticas (básicas con el baño en el exterior) y otras habitaciones que son buenas (baño privado) muy cómodas, pero de capacidad limitada, no hay mucha disponibilidad. recomendamos comprar la gira directamente con nosotros, en nuestra oficina o por la web ya que algunos hoteles venden nuestros productos, pero lo más recomendables es comprarlo directamente para tener información más detallada y precisa. Punto 4.- el paisaje durante la gira es muy bonito. No es posible obviar alguna vista. Atte. OASIS PALMERAS TRAVEL

We’ve had a great 3 day / 2 night trekking with our guide Carlos! As he is from the (surrounding) area, he knows a lot about the flora and fauna of the Colca Canyon. Also he was very patient and made sure you were walking on your own pace.

Recommend doing the 3 day trekking instead of the 2 day trekking: the second day is (for us) the most beautiful trek and you will be missing partly on that if you do the 2 day trek. Next to that: with the 3 day trekking you can do it slowly and relaxed.

I booked through Oasis Palmeras Travel’s website. I spoke to Manfred via whatsapp when I had questions and he was very helpful.

The best part was Carlos, our guide. He was really awesome and spoke to us about the plants and animals of the region as we walked by them. One of the members of our group of seven was too exhausted to continue after the hike down on the first day. Carlos was extremely kind to her and set up a car to pick her up on the morning of the second day. It cost her some money but she really wanted to get out and Carlos made it happen. Parts of the trail we hiked together but other parts where he could visualize hikers above and below him, he would let us hike at our own pace. He also gave us thirty minutes to stay in a certain area where condors sometimes fly. After twenty minutes, two condors started flying above me. It was beautiful and I’m grateful to have been with a guide who knows the area well.

The first night we stayed in Posada de Gloria where thefood was delicious. I’m vegetarian and the veg options were yummy and filling. The second night we stayed in Oasis Sangalle and the food wasn’t as great but there was plenty of it and the rooms were comfortable. The pool there was great after a long day of hiking.

Bring hiking poles if you have them. They also sell bamboo hiking poles at the start of the hike. The first day is down for several hours. The second day is up and down for less hours and the third day is straight up for 3-4 hours.

This was a great trek. I'd definitely recommend the 3 days over two if you have time. It's a long way down into the canyon, but the views along the way are spectacular and the remote first night is tranquil, looking up at an organ pipe canyon wall, listening to the river while looking up at a bright field of stars. Day Two is easiest, going through the jungle is cooler and again filled with unique beautiful sites (a swath of green caused by the waterfall spring surrounded by desert) and you arrive at the oasis with plenty of time to relax in the pool. Again, you fall asleep to running water. The final day is a slow but steady task, but totally achievable. The extra downtime means you really get to know your group and you can enjoy every moment in the canyon. You can do this alone, but even those that tried ended up relying on our guide who was friendly, informative and cheap (especially if you don't book through trip advisor). Definitely worth it.

She explained alot of things to us, thaught us alot about the nature and answered kindly to all our questions. This 3 days were incredible. The landscape was marvelous. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience something unique around Arequipa.

I did the 3 days, 2 nights colca tour in January 2020 with guide Angie. Great tour, not expensive, super friendly guide. Also she was really accommodating to all our wishes and gave very interesting explanations. Angie speaks English very well.

Yo hice el tour de 3 días, 2 noches en cañon de Colca en enero 2020 con guía Angie. Fue una experiencia excellent. No es un tour caro y la guía es super professional y te ayuda con todo qué preguntas. También tiene informacion muy interesante sobre el cañón, su historia y su fauna y flora.
