Loved this tour, highly recommend

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.

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.

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

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.

HIKE WITH EDGAR ON A DRIZZLING DAY

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

Very good Rainbow mountain experience starting at 9AM from Cusco

The Rainbow mountain is quite a hike at 5200 meter height. On my way up, I saw someone being carried down as the person was not comfortable with the height and low oxygen. Two other people were lying down just to get adjusted to the height and low oxygen environment. Ed is a very good trained English speaking tour guide knowing how to take care of tour participant. Checking often with me, giving information, he made me comfortable throughout the tour. Victor drove us to Rainbow mountain and back to Cusco, he too was helpful though he did not speak english. They both took care of our snacks and special need meals. Over all the tour was very good and offered a fantastic Rainbow mountain experience in short time than many other tours. Note it starts at 9AM instead of very early morning.

日本語の投稿がないので、あえて日本語で書き込みます。緊急時の為に(高山病など体調の変化を伝える為)簡単な英語力は必要ですが、皆が帰る時間に登り始めるので、頂上に到着した時には、本当に貸し切りになるので、絶対オススメです。スタッフは完璧な英語をしゃべるし、とても分かりやすく説明してくれて、とても親切でした。
