    Los lugares que visitamos muy lindos la excursión valió la pena. La hicimos con Liam Tours el guía Jhonny más o menos, me parece importante destacar que los protocolos de COVID no se cumplieron y esto es responsabilidad del guía. Íbamos en una minivan 12 personas aprox el 80 % sin barbijos, sin aireación, me parece muy irresponsable. Jhonny solo contó anécdotas.....

  • 03-Aug-2022

    El mejor momento fue la llegada a ver los condor... pero lastimosamente solo pudimos estar 45 minutos....

    Beat my expectations, thought it'd be much worse but was definitely worth it for how cheap it is. Better then expected.

    Great trip with local history of the colca canyon and the local people with a few encounters of wildlife, and incredible landscapes

  • 14-Feb-2020

    Podria pedir que a aquellos que vamos en otra epoca que no sea Julio, nos avisen que los condores no se ven o quiza

  • 06-Feb-2020

    Linda experiencia con mi hija yerno y esposo muy buena guía gran caminata falta promocionar, no vimos a los cóndores ( esta vez) y a pesar de eso, el esfuerzo al ir a diferentes miradores y su versada explicación de colibrís y otras aves valió la pena

    Un paisaje especial baños termales incomparables me encanto el colca lodge Relajo total sobre todo que no tenia Tv

    Il tour inizia molto presto al mattino (pick up alle 3 e mezzo) e con un pulmino si va verso le montagne e si sale .... Visite di Maca, Civay ed altri piccoli paesi andini. Il tour arriva alla vetta del Mirador del Colca Canyon (quasi 5000 m slm), dove si dovrebbero vedere i condor volare ... Forse sono stato sfortunato, ma a sentire anche altri, quella dei condor sembra ormai una favola: l'unico condor che si vede è una maschera per le foto !!! In realtà i condor in Perù si vedono, ma, pare sempre meno al Colca Canyon. Viaggio di ritorno con sosta ad una specie di area termale (gestita scandalosamente ...) con vasche di acqua calda. Pranzo e ritorno verso Arequipa passando da una bella e vasta area vulcanica che chiamano Ojo des volcanes. Sterminati pascoli di alpaca, vigogne e lama. Dai 5000/4500 metri di altezza si torna, stanchi, ad Arequipa.

    This was a no go! Way too far in a crappy bus for only two viewpoints. The tourguide spoke mostly Spanish so half of the time we had no clue what was going on. We had to pay €25 pp to get into Chivay and lunch was not cheap either. Someone had to throw up in the van and we also felt sick ourselves. Not worth it.

    They made us be ready at 2:30 am but didn't bother to pick us up until 3:15 am (great time to be waiting for 45 mins). To my surprise, after that they only had two minuscule seats in the back where my legs wouldn't fit with fantastic views to the side of the van. On top of that, the tour is mainly the guide taking you from one rip-off to next: pay for a pic with an alpaca, buy these "handcrafted" stuff, try this "unique" typical juice for 5 bucks. The cherry leaston top was the last stop before lunch, where you could "choose" between spending 50 bucks for a lousy zipline
    or 15 bucks to bath in some hot springs. If you were not interested in either, you had to wait for an hour in the sun. At least, the rest of the group had great views to the canyon while on the road, but we spent the whole day alternating watching the side of the van with dealing with their extortions. Please choose a different company, because the condor's flight is really a sight to behold and you shouldn't miss it.
