Highly recommended!! Five star service!!

My tour guide Charly is the best! He took good care of me and all of the team in tour. The tour is great never have to wake up early in the morning. There's optional to choose to go round trip to the mountain halfway and the rest u have to climb using the rop to the top;also for sick altitude ppl like me they also have piggyback service. Which is awesome. I am not in a good fit to hike at all but they all make sure that I arrive to the top of the mountain! Thank you so much for bringing oxygen tank to my husband in the hotel even though he's not part of it but the tour company make sure that I enjoy the tour without any worries. Highly recommended!!! (Make sure to bring soles to tip the nomad ppl for their hardwork. They all are nice ppl)

Edwin was an informative, personable, and friendly tour guide that went the extra mile throughout the tour. Rainbow mountain was gorgeous and going to see it in the afternoon was the better choice since we weren’t surrounded by a lot of other people. We had moments to stop, breathe, and really take in the views without being interrupted by tourists. I had the best time.

Great place to visit

We booked for 2 people. Operator contacted us day before about only us 2 having the booking and asked for additional $15 per each to make this private tour. We agreed because we didn't want to skip this experience. It turns out we then had to pay first 5 soles each to drive thru some village, and then 20 soles each to enter rainbow mountain. Description says that was included, maybe because this was made "private" they excluded it. I don't know. So in the end we couldn't cancel evening before and ended up paying quite a bit more even though it wasn't our fault they didn't have more people sign up. We loved the rainbow mountain experience itself, and maybe with larger group there would be no cost issue, so hard to judge really. I gave them 4 stars because of beauty of the place.

Hello dear Henry, Thank you so much for your honest review, I really apologize for the misunderstanding, our representative was not creal enough to explain this, we will keep working hard to improve our service. Yes, the entrances are not included in the private tour, and specially considering the price we asked for an upgrade to a private tour. Usually our private tour it is 129 usd per person based in 2 peiple with everything included. But again, I am so sorry for the inconvenient, we hope to see you again.

Edwin was an excellent guide who did not talk your ear off. The info he shared was awesome and very informative. We had the mountain almost to ourselves. Breathtaking scenery loss for words.

It was a spiritual experience.

If you are planning on traveling to Peru, it is in your best interests to use Peru Private Tours....Edwin is amazing!!! He is a great conversationalist and he knows the history, the culture, and the geography of this country like the back of his hand....and everything in between. He was patient with my five year old daughter and he put my mind at ease with her on the Rainbow Mountain tour. He is an amazing guide as well....he is a professional....he hikes the route once a day during peak tourist season, which was all year before the pandemic. He runs a very well organized operation and is extremely professional....and punctual. He goes above and beyond to make your experience an amazing life experience. I won’t tell you what to expect at Rainbow Mountain, except that attaining true beauty can be difficult. Give yourself a chance to acclimate and if you aren’t sure, you miss nothing by taking the horses up. Edwin is very responsive to your questions....and he is honest. He was an all around joy, and his upbeat personality made the trip all the more enjoyable. You will enjoy getting to know him on your hike....and the majesty of Rainbow Mountain will take your breath away. You won’t regret it. The hike down is just as amazing....the afternoon sun does something to the valley....and the silence.....if you stand still and don’t say a word.....I felt it in my spirit. My last personal opinion.....this is the best tour to take.....I saw some of the hikers that took the early morning tours coming back down the mountain....many of them looked miserable. The last trek up can shock you if you aren’t prepared. The wind comes out of nowhere....and it’s cold...not unbearably cold, but you won’t be comfortable in a t-shirt. We hiked up at about 1400ish, and it was very chilly at the top. I can only imagine what the early morning hikers experienced. I think being comfortable is an important part of being able to enjoy the splendor of this sacred and magical place, and this tour puts you on the mountain without the crowds. If you want to feel Rainbow Mountain in your spirit, book this tour with Edwin.

Excellent Tour Service
, Dec 2019
It was organised by a lovely chap named Edwin. It’s a 3 hour trip to the mountains (rest stop at 1.5hrs at a really clean and lovely restaurant) and they choose the scenic route, with absolutely stunning views on the way up. Edwin tells you exactly what you need to bring with you, and he himself provides you with some light snacks and water should you need it. Once there, the mountain and the surrounding view is breathtaking. There are only a handful of people there if that, which means you can take pictures to your hearts content. I opted to take a horse for half the trek due to altitude problems (trust me, if you aren’t sure, take the horse). Once at the top, Edwin has some hot coca tea for you to sip at the summit, and he is very patient on the trek up, as it can take a while even for the fittest of people. On the ride back, we stop at the restaurant again, and treated to a meal (all part of the package), and the restaurant manager was nice enough to have fish cooked specially for me as i couldn’t have the meat (i was really grateful for this). Overall, what a brilliant tour. Just remember to take warm clothing, like a fleece, woolly hat (that covers ears is a must), and gloves, because it gets really cold up there and i went in December (summer). Hope this review helps.

Tour was amazing about a 4 hour drive but who cares with the view going up. Hike is a little tough but once you reach the top the world is yours. Thank you Viator. Thank you Peru Private tours company.

Edgar was a very experienced hiker, very friendly & supportive, and knew the mountain very well. Victor, the driver, was very kind & helpful to my wife, who got sick during the trip & assisted her in the van while she was throwing up, maybe from stomach virus, or the bumpy ride up the foot of the mountain.

Dear Aida, Thanks a lot for booking with us, we are very happy to know that you enjoyed your day with us and you liked our service, we are so sorry for your wife that she finally didn`t get to the mountain, but she tried, specially because she started quite sick from the hotel. Thanks a lot for your kind words. Next time we will for sure get to the top all of us so we will be waiting for you. Best regards
