We did the 2D/1N Not Conventional Tour with Short Treks and had an unbelievably amazing experience. If you want an intimate look at Colca Canyon with an knowledgeable and accommodating tour guide, then this is definitely the company for you. Yes, it's a bit more expensive than some of the group tours, but it's completely worth it. Everything major is... More

My girlfriend and I booked this tour and we had a private tour with guide and driver. It was all organised well and our guide (not "Carlitos", we think "Jean", but are not sure anymore :-) ) was wonderful. He was very experienced and knew a lot about the fauna, flora and the history of the colca canyon and the... More

We are a Canadian family traveling Peru with 5 young children (ages 2-10). We had a fabulous time with Carlitos Tours and can't recommend them highly enough. Our guide, Jean, was a tremendous help with the kids and was very knowledgeable. The 3 Day tour was the right choice for our family as it allowed the kids a slower pace... More

We had a great experience with Carlitos Tours from start to finish. Great customer service, from the level of communication before the trip (speedy response to email, meeting personally a couple of days before to ensure everything was ok) to being very flexible on timings and itinerary, to throwing in a free city tour and even personally taking us back...

We've never been on a tour before with both a driver and a guide. We were pleasantly surprised with the service beforehand and afterwards, very much appreciated. We communicated by e-mail about 2 weeks in advance and we received the full explanations and options of the tours and easily arranged a time and place to meet. I would very much... More

If you're thinking of doing Colca Canyon with a guide, then Carlitos Tours is the way to go!! Arriving in Arequipa after having trekked around the Amazon and Maccu Picchu we were really tired and a little worse for wear.

Beforehand, Carlitos met us at our hotel and informed us of everything we would be receiving on the tour, which was very helpful as we knew what to expect.
