We were planning to take the trek to the Colca Valley. The night before we met Carlitos to talk over the details of the tour. It became clear to him and later to us, that we were not ready for such a trek and decided last minute to change it to a classic Colca Valley Tour. He was able to... More

My boyfriend and I are in our mid 20s and in a tight budget so weren't sure about spending the extra money on carlitos. Turned out to be the best decision and the highlight of our two month trip! We felt the extra money was well worth it because: - above all, we had the most AMAZING guide called Hubert.... More

We wanted to add to the glowing reviews of Carlitos Tours, and specifically our guide Jean. We did the 3 day/2 night colca canyon tour and were very pleased with the organisation and value for money offered. We were met the night before by another representative and given all the details about what to expect and what we needed to... More

Our group had the pleasure of working with Jean for two separate tours while in Arequipa, Peru. On May 20th, we spent the day at Toro Muerto exploring the petroglyphs. On May 21st-22nd we hiked Colca Canyon to Sangalle. Jean was amazing! During our hike, we had some health issues with members of our group. Without Jean's help, our group... More

We arrived in Chivay (actually Yanque) from Puno instead of going from Arequipa. The good news is we started our tour at 7am instead of 3am. Our guide, JC, arrived at our Lodge on time and spoke great English. He immediately interacted with our three boys ages 11, 9 and 9. We chose the shared bus to save money so... More

We had Jean as our guide. I really can't say enough about how wonderful and caring he was. We did the 2 day/1 night tour and it was rather hard but enjoyable. We stopped after about 5 hours of hiking and had lunch in a tiny town and the food was excellent. I believe it was Lomo Saltado with Alpaca.... More

We really enjoyed our 2d/1n tour with Juan. For anyone that likes a personalised tour, this is excellent. The company strives to make the tourists on its trip as happy as possible, and they succeed. They go out of their way to make it a great trip. The only advice I have is be careful about eating meat at the... More

Background: we chose Carlitos tours after reading Trip Advisor reviews. We had no prior friend recommendations to go off of who used Carlitos. We chose Carlitos after learning they had a 3 day / 2 night option with ability for a home stay and that their price included everything including all meals and some side activities (many others do not)....

We did a 3 days/2 nights tour of the Colca Canyon tour (both of us 29) Carlos was very good at answering my emails from home and answered all our questions once we arrived in Arequipa. It was very easy to reach him. Very well spoken and so nice! We started with a walking tour of Arequipa the day before... More

We (couple, 25 & 30) did the 2 day 1 night tour of the Colca Canyon. Jean was an exceptional tour guide! He not only taught us about the sights visited, but also about Peruvian life. Jean had an answer for any question and a great sense of humor! His English was very good, and he even taught us some... More
