The tour allows you to discover the typical flora and fauna of the Andean plateau (llamas, alpacas, vicunas, etc), you will visit a very high point at over 4900 meters to experience the thrill of altitude and take a trip to the spa , small but really cute! We then go to the cross of the condor where we were lucky enough to admire numerous condors on a very clear day. The guide was originally from the place and explained everything with great motivation and transport, I really enjoyed everything about the tour

For me, this tour was great because I saw an incredible amount in two days. You drive a lot, of course, and are let out of the van for a few minutes for photos and short visits to the best spots. As I wanted to make my way from Cusco to Puno (Lake Titicaca) and didn't have much time to see Colca Canyon. Perfect. Everything was super organised and the guide and driver were great.

Amazing experience. Perfect if you don’t fancy hiking a lot. Luisa was a very helpful kind and knowledgeable tour guide. We learnt so much and saw some incredible sites in the space of 2 days. Lots of llamas. Thank you. 100% recommend and very good value for money. Delicious buffet lunch.
