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.

Dear Yvonne We are sorry that you have that concept of our tour. Our van is a tourist Van (Mercedes Benz 2018) is always clean and suitable for tourist I think the adjective that you used does not really apply. About 25euros that really is less (18 euros pp approximately) but this is not for us and rather is to help local people is a tax to entry the Colca Canyon and everybody pay. Our tour guide is bilingual and speaks English and Spanish during the all explanations, however we will work to improve this aspect. Finally, I want to tell you that the title in your comment is no according with your comment, I think you could you have written another title according to your criticisms or observations.

Full day trip to Colca Canyon
Oct. 2019
An ok trip but a few too many stops to buy local trader’s gifts. Also the optional thermal baths looked uninviting so we gave that a miss. The breakfast was average at best and the optional buffet lunch was expensive for what was provided. Nice to see the canyon and condors though.

Dear Customer Thanks for your comments it help us to improve. The points of stops are the best viewpoints in the Colca Valley and at each point the local people sell. We stop for the viewpoints not so much for the stores.

Depends What You’re Looking For...
My girlfriend Tori and I went on this tour. We got picked up at the hotel on time and the bus was nice. Driver and the host were nice and knowledgeable however we found it to be a very long day for what you get out of it. The ‘breakfast included was just coffee/tea and a couple bread rolls with jam and you had to pay 2 soles more for a small portion of eggs. And then when you get to the various stops you have 10-15 minutes for the view and pictures and an hour for the main condor viewing. We went to the hot springs as well and they were relaxing although very unclean and didn’t look like they were maintained well (you get 45mins total).

We are a very easygoing couple and it wasn’t the worst day however we just found that it’s A-LOT of sitting on the bus for a couple views and you’re gone from 2AM to 5PM which in hindsight we feel it would’ve been better to do other things around Arequipa or a shorter tour for what we got out of it.

Colca Canyon TWO DAYS
Aug. 2019
You cannot do a 1-day tour of Colca Canyon in 1 day. We always do it yearly in August as a 2-Day Trip! You MUST be at the Canyon's Miradors (Lookout points) by 7-8 am. The Cruz del Condor on Aug 30 and 31 were WAY too busy with 100s to 1000s of tourists. We stopped at one outside Cabanaconde and then one after Cruz del Condor. it worked out VERY well. Check my latest Facebook post (3 Sept 2019).

Colca Canyon adventure
Jan. 2019
An early morning pickup at our hotel in a very nice van started the day. By 5amwe had been in the van for two hours, ou4 first stop was at 15000 ft elevation. It was a bit cool as we watched the vendors setting up their booths. We saw the column of stea: rising from an active volcano. We continued onward. Our breakfast stop featured great coffee and lots of food. By the time we reached theCanyon we were ready to stretch our legs. That we did as the Condors soared overhead.
On the trip up which was done in darkness I had the illusion we were hugging the side of a mountain. No we had traversed a large large plateau.

great views at risk of losing your life
Jan. 2019
great views of the edge of the andes, the condors, and all, at a high risk of losing your life.
the trip there is too dangerous given the drivers and road conditions.
we booked a one day trip tour (got picked up at 3am) and we were sitting on the first seats of the bus
the bus kept overtaking slower vehicles, on double yellow, near turns and crests, with no guardrail next to cliffs.
google colca tour bus accidents before you book any tours to be aware of just how dangerous this trip is.
even if the tour bus driver uses common sense and not over take where dangerous and maintain safe speed, there are too many unsafe drivers with heavy equipment that can collide with your and ruin your day if not your life.
also, the bus was traveling between 60-90kph, cutting the turns (apexing them as if we were in a race car). I asked him why he did that and he said to save the brakes and to make it to the condors in time. at one point on the way back we hit snow and ice on one side of the road, (5000 meter elevation) and the bus slid sideways for a good 200 yards before the driver regained control. I felt VERY unsafe and will definitely not recommend this trip under this conditions.
