First of all you can easily go by yourselves with no organized tour. Instead we trust a man from the staff of Albuergue Espanol and we book a 2 days tour with Peruvian Andes Agency ( cost 115 soles each) . Do not go at...More

We went on our own for a 2D/1N trek, starting from Cabanaconde. The bus ride to Cabanaconde from Arequipa takes a while (6 hours), we decided to take a bus at 2pm (be aware that the departure time may vary on sundays) to start trekking...More

I never write reviews but this one seems warranted. We booked a one day tour through American tours for Colca canyon. When we booked, we added and payed for the extras (lunch, thermal springs). However when we went on our tour (apparently run by a...More

I booked the 2 day 1 night trek for myself and husband. What I never knew was that you walk 17km on the first day alone down hill on a trail that is dusty and rocky and slippery. The sun was blistering hot and we...More

For Trekking lovers like us, hiking through the Colca Canyon was a great experience. Even if our group was a bit too big with more than 10 travelers, we tried to make the best out of it. In case you search for smaller more personal...More

I booked two days Colca canyon tour in American Tour company Arequipa. The food they provided during this 2 days trek was very bad. They also charged me double for buffet meal instead if 15 soles I had to pay 30 soles.
