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.

We did the Colca Canyon with Land Adventures and I really liked the guide and the whole experience. The walk in and out is a real adventure and quite difficult. We saw tons of condors and we really enjoyed that, I recommend it.

Challenging walk over the 2 days but our guide Roy made it a great experience. Roy's educational stops about the wildlife and plants made it even better. Basic accommodation but exactly what you should expect in the middle of know where. Make sure you take...More

Beautiful scenery, difficult hike due to heat and altitude, rewarding hot springs at the end, definitely worth doing! 2 day trip best option in our opinion as there didn't seem to be much point in going all that way for 1 day and I'm not...More

We contacted Johselm on the internet, and organised the tour before arriving. His wife picked us at the airport, as agreed, and we discussed the details on the following afternoon when he met us at the hotel we were staying. Besides being a great guide,...More
