A great tour! The rainbow valley is wonderful and unique. After a walk through the valley, breakfast was served - even with freshly baked scrambled eggs and coffee! The guide was able to explain everything about the volcanism and the emergence of the valley with the many colors! We had a great time and would recommend it to everyone!

Great experience in a small group of ten people, generous breakfast with a guide and a driver more than attentive. Breathtaking landscapes with very detailed explanations from the guide. Our favorite moment was the spiritual experience where we heard the song of birds and the sound of the wind crossing the aircoiris valley. Thank you to Uriel our guide for this tour which will leave us with memories forever engraved.
