This was a great tour. The guide was great, the van was comfortable, the driver was very good. They stopped many times along the way to give us time to see many sights and lots of local wild life, taking the time to explain everything along the way in both English and Spanish. We saw llamas, alpacas, vicuñas and condors up close. There was plenty of time to hike around and spend time exploring several places along the way. The lunch and dinner options were not great, but OK. The food for the lunches was buffet and expect buffet quality (meaning not good) and the dinner was OK with the show reasonably entertaining. Overall we were extremely happy with the trip and had a great time. We are seniors and had no issues with any of the trip, there were a couple of places at high altitude where we needed to stop and get our breath a bit, but I would say most people would not have any significant issues and you can choose to be more passive and easily avoid pushing yourself too hard.

Breathe deeply and look out the window. Read Wikipedia beforehand.

Avoid altitude and motion sickness by doing the above so you can enjoy the unique, spectacular views. I'm glad to have have had a GPS with an altimeter so I could track each level of height, and a plastic card and handkerchief to keep the ice from forming too thickly on the window. The tour guide was a good story teller, but sometimes she spoke too fast in her thick accent. The hot springs were unique, but if you spend too much time in them they sap your energy. I would do it again. Very enjoyable!

My girlfriend and I had a great tour. Saw active volcanoes and big condor birds in the colcoa canyon. The driver and guide were excellent and very knowledgeable. They even had some alcohol on hand to help with altitude sickness. Would recommend for other travelers

Victor was incredible, super friendly, organised and knowledgable. The driver was also great. Only criticism is that as we were a little delayed with the condors, we drove too fast back to Arequipa. All in all a great experience.

Very well-organized and the guide was informative and knowledgeable. She showed us some nice "off the beaten path" sites that we would have probably never discovered on our own.
