It exceeded my expectations by far. the super professional driver and guide Henry. Attentive to all, the guide during the two days was telling us and giving information about everything. The experience of seeing the condors was the best. We were going to leave in an hour and a half, but we had only seen some from afar, the guide left us for another half hour, and then, several appeared flying very close. only a professional does it, many other tours had already gone and missed out on living that wonder. They complied with everything agreed. Excellent everything.

Nice excursion from Arequipa. It's great that you can arrange your stay yourself, Chivay, so that you can tailor it to your needs. We had booked the option without meals, but if you want to eat at the same location as the rest of the group, it is better to book the option with meals. This is cheaper than paying in the restaurant.

A perfectly organized excursion! Good coordination between the various care providers. Several messages in advance from the contact on site, to inform about the progress of the activity. The drivers were on time, the transport corresponded to my choice, the guide very competent, the meal taken in an excellent local restaurant. Everything went perfectly.
