This was a wonderful excursion, and Ruth was a fabulous guide. We were lucky to see different wildlife on our trip: vicunas, flamingos, mountain parakeets, condors, and more. Ruth knew that I liked birds so she made a special effort to point out different varieties to me. We were lucky to see several condors at Cruz del Condor viewpoint. We also had a great tour group that made the excursion extra fun. The Colca Valley and Canyon are beautiful and peaceful. You should do this trip!

The tour guide was very attentive and went out of his way to answer questions. BEWARE the web site does not specify where to rent the hotel and I ended up paying for two bookings.

Reconfirmation call

After arrival at the hotel, I called the designated phone No. according to your instruction in the voucher.However, automatic message in Spanish was received and could not understand any thing.Then asked a hotel reception to tell my arrival and reconfirmation.For a English speaking traveler, impossible to understand telephone communication in Spanish. Re-confirmation should be not trough a phone but trough e-mail.Other things during the tour are very good, managed correctly and punctually, and I had a friendly tour guide.

I highly recommend this trip. Everything was on time. Jane has very good English and huge knowledge. She is extremely friendly and helpful. Views are unbelievable! We were very lucky to see condors. Colca Canyon is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.

This whole trip was fantastic. Jeannette was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide, and the drive was absolutely spectacular. Both of the lunch stops were very high quality. We also saw lots of vicunas and condors - we were lucky the day was so sunny and clear for the condors. Although the altitude change was a bit difficult at times, Jeannette always checked on us and made sure we were ok to keep going. We also had a stop during the drive for Inka or Coca tea, which was very appreciated. Would definitely recommend this for anyone looking to tour the canyon in comfort! I also recommend staying at the Colca Lodge Hotel and Spa overnight - it's out of Yanque a bit, but the atmosphere and services were second to none. I wish I could have stayed there another night, in fact!

This trip was amazing and exceeds expectations. The only thing I would recommend to people is to do a two night stay in the canyon instead of only one. The resort we stayed , the Colca Canyon Lodge, was beautiful , it had a great staff , and the hot springs were the bests we have been.

We enjoyed the tour. We were looked after well and our guide was very informative. We learned a lot about every aspect of this area and about Peruvian culture in general.The travelling is extensive and the roads often bumpy we were in the rainy season which meant that a certain amount of stamina was required but it was a wonderful trip and we did see some condors!

Great tour - two day tour is well planned and gives you time to enjoy the trip. The views of the canyon were amazing. We stayed at El Refugio hotel in Chivay - definitely the best hotel due to the views of the canyon. It is outside the city, but the tour guides do all the transportation so you have nothing to worry about.

We had an absolutely fantastic tour and loved all that we saw. Watching the condors from the edges of the canyon was just magical -the flew so close to us and the scenery of the snow capped mountains in the backgroud was amaazing. Our guide was great, all the stops along the way were interesting and Chivay and the other smaller towns we stopped and visited certainly gave us a snapshot of Peruvian life and customs. We saw 14 condors the day that we went -they were incredible, and we got lots of great photos.
