This tour started out badly. We were told to be ready to be picked up from 2:30 I believe and it was almost 4 a.m. Before the nice bus arrived. They had someone else's name listed and that had to be straightened out. From there it got better. The guide was very good, we saw a lot including 4 giant condors and had time at the hot springs.we were taken by taxi back to our hotel. This tour gave us the opportunity to see a lot of the country side in the area which we enjoyed very much.
This tour is very good value for the cost.
Awesome to see the condors in person.
Rosa was an amazing guide, she knew everything you needed to know about the tour and the zones we visited.
We booked this tour even though it was more expensive than others because the itinerary was longer and nicer but the guide did not respected the plan. We never went to Chivay and we stopped for lunch in a buffet place in the middle of nowhere.. so if you want to eat something you had no other choice. Most importantly we were interested in visiting the off springs, as well as most of the other people travelling with us and we agreed this with the the guide in the morning but then we never went there and the guide did no provide any explanation.. he sat quietly next to the driver for most of the tour providing the minimum information possible. We arrived in Arequipa 1h and 10minutes ahead of schedule. Thankfully we saw the condors flying on the Colca canyon and it was worth the trip but overall I will not recommend this tour, other tour operators had better value for money.
Poor service, poor food option, cramped van, not all covered as listed, will not be using Viator as I could get better value booking directly.
I would have given 2 stars but then it would have meant it was okay. I expect a lot better than aviator and its service providers. There are many options in the main square where you can book the tour for half the price I paid online for ther service provided. The driver was slow and did not reach until about 6:45am. The breakfast was very basic, I did not see any coffee. Their was more time spent on lunch and breakfast than the site itself. Lunch was in a very poor restaurant, prices were over the top for the food given and you had no choice since there was nothing else in the vicinity and it was not in the main square of Chivay where you could at least pick and choose. Here it was either this or no lunch. The tour did not go into Chivay at all. Yes, the tour gave time to see the condors fly, but to travel for a total of 7 hours for less than 4 hours of viewing, because breakfast/lunch was another 2 hours. I was not well which did not help matters, but it would not matter even if I was well. I expected better service and transportation booking though aviator otherwise I would have booked directly at the town square.
It was very disappointing! I expected more time in the canyon than hopping on and off the bus for 10min visit in 5 points total (including the colca canyon). The breakfast was awful, the service terrible! The driver was cheap (no AC), rude and a rectless driver. I DO NO RECOMMEND IT!
