Some lacks to be reconsidered
Ludovick_B
, Aug 2022
Our guide was very sweet, nothing against her. She was one of the kind and the views were breathtaking. But : - Serious lack of managing in the day schedule. We came back at 8:00 PM and we were supposed to be back at 5:30. The two hours and half late was not because of traffic at all. Making people eat breakfast at 7:30 AM and make them wait til 2:30 PM to eat lunch doesn't not make sense. - Breakfast was a real joke. Literally the portion of scrambled egg that we give to a baby. And Bread with butter. We can't even call this a breakfast. This really needs to be revised. - The price for every activities was not included. So finally we paid for the bus gas.

Long day, not worth the money

Lots of condors, but trip was a bit too long with +8 hrs in the bus. Lunch was not good and breakfast was almost not edible. Very expensive trip, given what you get (entrance tickets and meals not included).

Our guide was very informative and helpful. Keep in mind this is a one day experience and they pack alot in. If you want more time I suggest doing a two-three day experience. The bus was very comfortable as well!

Great trip

This was a great trip and I'm glad the tour guides picked me up on time from my Airbnb as punctuality is not very common in Latin America. Pros: -Hotel pickup/dropoff -Many sites to see before and after viewing colca canyon -Although there was a lot we saw in this day tour I never felt rushed. -Guides were knowledgeable Cons: -I understand Spanish, but if you don't you're not getting all the history and information as they summarize it when speaking in English. -We started off in a big coach bus, but then switched to a small bus which sucked as we were packed inside. -Great tour, but after visiting the cañon you will be very tired even though you have like 6 more hours left before you get home. All in all, it was a long day trip, but I enjoyed it and I would recommend it to others. I just wished they would include an express option where we could drive straight to the canyon and back while avoiding all the touristy stops along the way - I would pay for that.

Very Meh

We were disappointed by this tour. The vast majority of time is spent on the bus (8+ hours of the 14-ish hour tour), and the stops themselves aren't very interesting. The actual canyon isn't all that cool, sadly enough, and other smaller stops on the way to and from the canyon were touristy and not interesting. Plus, our guide left something to be desired - he was very repetitive, and the constant switching between Spanish and English was difficult to follow. Overall, the day was very long and we were ready for the tour to be over. Wouldn't recommend.

Cumplieron con el recorrido de la aventura, pero nos faltó un guia que nos hable de la historia del lugar.
