    This is a very economical half day tour of Arequipa. There was great communication from the organizer via WhatsApp. We were told what to pack and exactly what the cost of the extra admissions would be. We were met at our hotel on time and escorted to the bus pick up location which was a 2 block walk. The bus is double decker with a cover. We had reserved seats which is nice. There are 5 stops. In my opinion, the first 4 are worthwhile, especially the 3rd one, but the last one, which is supposed to be a museum (contains 2 artifacts) is not worth the 10 sols entrance fee unless you want your picture next to a 200 year old willow tree and want to see a very large fighting bull. The tour covers a lot of ground in a short time and does not stay in any one location for very long. The guide was really great. I benefitted from the English portion. The bus sound system is not so good so it can be difficult to hear the guide while the bus is moving. The guide goes with you into each of the locations to further explain what you ate seeing. The tour ends a few blocks from the Plaza de Armes so you are not brought back to the pickup.

    la campiña Arequipeña es un paseo imperdible si estas por esta tierra bendita, la Mansion del fundador es una parada obligada dentro de este recorrido.

    Its a rip off! You dont get what you booked. It clearly says small group but I was cramped with 20 plus more people in a open deck bus. The sites we visited are not the ones described on the tour. You can book the same tour cheaper directly at the Plaza de Armas.

    They outsource the tour to Mirabus, where you are on a sightseeing bus with 20 other people. Hence it all takes a little longer than expected.

    For those who have never been to Arequipa and also want to get a sense of its location in the countryside, this tour is very good, especially for the price. It does stop at several well-know locations for vistas or to sample a local drink specialty. However, the one stop that is at a church for 360 degree vistas entails a good set of stairs to climb so if your knees are not so good, like mine, you may not bother with this vista. But I really did enjoy going about the La Mansion del Fundador. This is a well-preserved historic hacienda related to the founding of Arequipa and has barrel-vaulted ceilings, lots of old artwork and especially for me some very nice gardens. In addition, I enjoyed simply the opportunity to get outside of Arequipa and see a bit of the countryside, with a guide if I wished to ask questions. They also drop you off at the main plaza, a good location for further activities or a meal. Unfortunately they said they were going to visit the Mill, but I don't think we did. However, well-worth the cost and time.
