Arequipa to Colca - private car hire with driver/guide

We are looking to hire a car with driver/guide for 3 days 2 nights Arequipa to Colca for 2 persons in October. What would be a reasonable price to pay for this (including visits to Cruz del Condor, the canyon etc.) and can anyone recommend a few reliable non-rip-off companies in Arequipa we could approach.

arequipa-hotels.info/casa_andina_colca.htm

www.colca-lodge.com

setting up shuttle/guides to/from Colca hotels usually the

best way to this cheaply and get a nice place to stay...

from $50 per person through your hotel or around the plaza

from companies like Inka Planet but not private would be a group.

2 day 1 night from $35 including decent not great lodging...

Have fun,

Thanks for the info - However I did ask my hotel for a price and they came up with a figure of $357 PER PERSON for 3 days 2 nights (excluding guide and accommodation)!!!!

I'm hoping for something a little closer to sanity and the figures you mention.

Thanks xochitl -

I see from reading other threads that your posts are pretty reliable - you really are a great help. I'll certainly try colcatrek and report back on the result

This tends to be outrageously expensive. If you can't find anything reasonable just go with a tour bus, you'll end up doing exactly the same things you would have done on a private tour and it'll only cost about $30 per person.
