We will be staying in Arequipa at the Sonesta Posada del Inca for two nights ( one full day in Arequipa) then will be heading to Casa Andina in Chivay for our 2 nights in Colca. I've yet to make any arrangements for a car/guide to Colca Canyon ( Xochitl said we could do it in Arequipa after we arrived there).
I'd just like some recommendations for transport/guide to the Canyon and back. Where in Arequipa do I find tour agencies - the Plaza? Car or bus, when going to Chivay from Arequipa? Are there specific tour buses?
Also, how does this work - do the driver and/or guide stay overnight in Colca too? We won't be doing any hiking down the canyon; mainly there to take in the landscape and hopefully see some condors.
