I will try to differentiate my opinion of the delivery of the tour itself from my opinion of the tour as they are rather different. The only issue that we had with the company itself was communication. Apparently their website was hacked a while ago and now it is more secure than my bank's website. As a result it is... More

We booked a 3-day trip into the Colca Canyon and were really satisfied. Carlos visited us before the trip in the hostel and explained us everything. On the trip we spent a great time with our guide Jean. He was very kind and explained us a lot about the culture and nature. We also liked the stay at a local... More

I would recommend the 3 day trek even though you get picked up at 3:00 am from your hotel. The 2 day tour would have been too rushed and no time to relax. The group consisted of the two of us and Jean our guide. Carlitos Tours bends over backwards to make sure you have the best experience possible. We... More

We recently completed the Colca Canyon 2 day trek with Carlitos Tours and had Juan Carlos (JC) as our guide. We were the only 2 in the group so it was like a private tour. The trek was sensational and Juan Carlos was a superb guide. JC was very personable and concerned with our welfare and ensured we got the... More

We have used this company last September in order to organize private trip to Colca Canyon. I have to admit that whole process of booking went quite smoothly. Communication and email exchange was quick, which is not something common in case of Peru. So initial experience and expectation were high and we were not disappointed. We have been picked up...

We have had our Colca Canyon tour last August, and my suggestion is to chose them for your Colca Canyon tour also! The service was great, and Remy was a great guide. He was taking the time to explain us Inca history and this give a lot of added value to the Whole experience. We had an issue with hotel,... More

My girlfriend and I booked a 3 day, 2 night Colca Canyon trek with Carlito's Tour, and I couldn't recommend them enough. Despite the fact that most other tours follow the same route, we somehow felt that we were getting a better and more thoughtful service. Our guide, Jean, knew the area and country intimately, and had a lot of... More

Thanks to Carlitos and Jean for giving us such a wonderful experience!! We had a great time doing the 2 day Colca Canyon trek and we enjoyed every moment!

We booked the 3 day, 2 night tour and were lucky enough to have Carlitos as our guide. Let me start by saying that Carlitos was so amazing that I decided to finally sign up for a trip advisor account just so I can rave about the experience. The 3 day tour allows you to do a home stay with... More

Carlitos was awesome!! He went out of his way to accommodate us, even dropped us off at the bus station after we were finished the tour. The tour itself was awesome, we had a small group and the view and hike of the Colca canyon was amazing!! We did a lot of research, and it was awesome. We had an... More
