I just returned from the Rainbow mountain tour with Vidal Expeditions, I didn't think to see the colors right there because of the weather. We leave little bit late than usually and start hiking on the cloudy day, however once when we reach up the summit we had and incredible view of the Rainbow mountain IT WAS IMPRESSIVE!!! The weather was on our side but only for a few minutes because then it turned foggy and was complicate to see the colors. So we were supper lucky to see this and better to have Sergio as our guide, because he was sure to have at least a few minutes to see the color. It worth to climb so high elevation 5.120m.

We just completed the Rainbow Mountain tour with Vidal Expeditions, If you get a chance we highly recommed booking a tour with them while you are in Cusco.
Our guide Urbano took us to the summit of the Rainbow mountain carefully beacuse we never been in such high elevation (16731ft)
The booking process was easy and we received very prompt responses from Vidal though email providing all the informations we needed to make our decision. Urbano was at our hotel at or before 4am both to begin our tour, he brought blankets for us to keep us warm (and help us sleep.. very appreciated)
On the early morning drive to the restaurant. he also brought snacks for us to make sure we kept hydrated and had something to eat during the hike. After a filling breakfast we were back on the road to the starting point of our hike. Urbano made sure food allergies we taken care of for breakfast, snack, and lunch which was really great. For those with food allergies you know that can be a big concern when you are away from home.

This was such a big experience on the Peruvian mountains and I never
thought to reach over 16731 ft. it is very challenging but it worth for the incredible views.
Big appreciation to Urbano and Maximo our driver for this lifetime experience...I am sure we will recommed you guy for an excellent trip.

A great view on a recent discovered truly magnificent Rainbow Mountain! 3 hours from Cusco by car. Our taxi was 250 soles and the drivers walked with us on top of the mountain, very helpful with advices and tips. He had some agua florida very usefull for altitude sick (just breath it). It can be windy and dusty, also the 5000m air can be hard to breath, so you can choose to chew some coca or you can drink coca tea from many local vendors all over the 2km trek to the top. Take your time and do not move to fast. There are also horse rides available to the top for 50 soles. On the way down it is a nice restaurant , all you can eat buffet style - 25 soles. Enjoy a great mountain !!!

This must be the best company ever. Did the Rainbow mountain tour with them and got Chino as guide and Carlos (driver) . Kust amazing how they entertained us. Both were very knowledgeable about everything around us. Especially Chino. I had the fortune to have a fantastic group of 4 people only which was perfect for me comparing to others groups, and even a hard day hiking over 5000 meters could not break our spirit. You could even book this just to have a cullinary experience because the food they were able to prepare on this tour was just amazing aswell. Be sure to consider Vidal Expeditions if you want to do the Rainbow mountain. You will not be disappointed.

Yesterday my boyfriend and I went to Rainbow Mountain with Vidal Expeditions and couldn’t have asked for better service. We only were 4 people in our gruop which makes perfect to have enough time for photos and rest. Firstly, we are SO glad that the tour leaves early - there weren’t many tourists when we arrived and when we were leaving there was a flood of them coming in. Secondly, our guide, Antonio, was all-round fantastic. he always providing the right advices for get to this amazing place.
Overall whole service of Vidal Expeditions were well arganized... Highly recommend!

From the beginning our tour guide, Raul, picked us up from the airport we made lasting memories. He guided us on tours of the Inca sites around Cusco city Inca temple, Sacsayhuman, and Tambomachay. We then did the 1 day short Inca trail that led to Machu Picchu and stayed overnight in Aguas Calientes. Raul accompanied us on the Sacred Valley and Salt Mines tour along with the full day Rainbow Mountain trek which was a great experience, Thanks to Vidal Expeditions team to make of this trip unforgettable...Definitely will recommed this company.

Chino is the best!

Chino was our guide for our day trip to rainbow mountain as well as a customized sacred valley day trip. He was very friendly, patient, professional and cared about the customers! My wife and I love Chino and would love to have him again as a guide! As a bonus he took incredible pics of us!
Last but not least, Vidal was very responsive and flexible during all our communication.

We had a fantastic day during the tour of rainbow mountain with our guide Juan Antonio, he always take care about us and very attentive from the beginning to end, making jokes during the tour, always smiling. Our driver was Guido he kind during the service, Vidal Expeditions made a great job providing 5 starts service during this tour, small group, excellent tour guide, very well organized and always attentive to answer all our questions.
A great tour in the south of Cusco surrounded by amazing landscapes and great people 100% recommended for everyone who like to have little time away of crowded cities. A big thanks to VE team to create unforgettable trips.

Today we feel like champions. My friend and I trekked up Rainbow Mountain. We were clueless as to the challenge of this experience. Two sixty eight year old chicks accomplished this with the kindness and encouragement of our wonderful guide Carlos. Thank you Carlos for making this adventure so much fun.
