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

It took a lot of research before I finally decide to book Carlitos Tour for our 2N/1D Colca Short Trek and my research definitely paid off. Carlitos tour is the best TRULY! You get all the important information you will ever need prior to the tour from Carlitos himself who came to the hotel for the orientation. And for the... More

My wife and I paid top dollar for a private two day tour to Colca Canyon and back with lots of stops to see the sights. We did see all the sights and from a content standpoint we were thrilled to see so much in a short time from Vicunas to condors and earthquake faults to stunning sunsets... we were... More

Went with this tour because of the great reviews on trip advisor. Also didn't want to spend time looking around town negotiating for a tour. However for the convenience you really pay. We paid a lot of 165 dollars for a two day tour. This is wayyyyyyy too expensive for this tour. The food was very mediocre and the tour... More

Carlitos tours is a highly professional company. We did the three- day Colca Canyon trek and we were very satisfied with the organization and quality of the tour. We were met by a guide the day before the tour who provided us with a detailed briefing of the trek.Hubert was our guide, and he was honestly one of the best... More

For two days, my friend and I attempted to book a tour with Carlitos Tours because of their excellent ranking on TripAdvisor. We used their website booking tool, email, and called no fewer than 6 times. All electronic communication was completely ignored. Each time we got someone on the phone, they would assure us that we would receive an email... More

I booked the Colca canyon 2-day, 1-night tour with Carlitos and was very satisfied with entire experience. The day before the tour, Carlito met with me and my friend at the hotel to provide a detailed explanation of the trek, and advise us of what we needed to bring. Our tour guide, Jean Adco Apaza, far exceeded expectations. He provided... More

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
