          Only Juanita matters
          The main attraction in this small museum is "Juanita" which is not a mummy as many have written, but a frozen corpse of a 12-14-year-old girl that was sacrificed at the top of mountain Ampato, around 500 years ago. The corpse is shown inside a three-layer glass box to keep it frozen. It is removed to a dark place every six months and replaced by "Sarita", another frozen corpse which is not as impressive. The six remaining rooms in the museum contain small objects that are kept as they were found, with little or no restoration. They are mostly of interest to specialists. No photos are allowed, even without a flash. This can be understood for "Juanita" or "Sarita" for obvious reasons, but not for the rest of the museum. The entry price paid by foreigners is high for what there is to see in the small museum, moreover, you can only visit with a tour guide (payment not included). You could eventually skip the visit.

          Better then expected
          Beat my expectations, thought it'd be much worse but was definitely worth it for how cheap it is. Better then expected.

          Amazing lanscape with professional crew
          What an amazing trip. Peter our guide and Persi our driver were very professional. The guide explained as alot about the story of the area and is quite interesting. You have more than enough stops to do pictures, shopping an brakes. Be ready for a long drive. The tour starts from arequipa with posibility to end in Puno or back to arequipa

          Just awesome!
          Salinas salt lagoon is incredibly beautiful. I was there during the rainy season so it’s not white but instead a big mirror. Our guide Elli was super knowledgeable and could answer all our questions about the region and the lagoon itself. Since we were only two guests, the whole tour was super flexible and tailored to our wishes. I can highly recommend this tour - it’s worth every penny :-)

          Enjoyable visit but doesn’t beat Uyuni
          My partner and I did the salt lagoon visit with Arequipa Tour when it looked like we wouldn’t get to Uyuni because of the Bolivian riots. The personalised tour was pretty good and I enjoyed that it did not feel rushed in any way; we were able to stop en route whenever we wanted and got to spend a decent amount of time at the salinas. Unexpectedly, we also had the best avocado I have ever had in my life at lunchtime! The salinas themselves were very nice to look at and seen fairly expansive once you are in the middle of them. We were able to take some nice photos and enjoyed walking across them. However, make sure you go after a period of good weather as if not the salt can be a bit grey. Unfortunately, this was the case with us and our guide wouldn’t stop talking about how much better it had been the week before..! In relation to our guide: Elly was very enthusiastic and knowledgable so it was on the whole good to have her as our guide. However, my partner found it confusing that the tour was carried out in a kind of Spanglish (ie sentences variously in English and in Spanish, sometimes both in the same sentence). This may have had something to do with the fact that I speak both and perhaps Elly enjoyed speaking both too. Finally, as a minor point, we didn’t appreciate when we were having a casual conversation during our walk and Elly stated that she would never want to marry a European man because she doesn’t like Europeans. We are both European (which she knew) so that opinion should probably have been kept to herself. Overall, I would recommend this tour if you don’t have time to see any other salt flats while in South America. However, it is expensive (we paid $95 each for a private tour) and definitely doesn’t compare to Uyuni (which we got to see in the end)!

          Don't book this tour
          This was a no go! Way too far in a crappy bus for only two viewpoints. The tourguide spoke mostly Spanish so half of the time we had no clue what was going on. We had to pay €25 pp to get into Chivay and lunch was not cheap either. Someone had to throw up in the van and we also felt sick ourselves. Not worth it.

          Full day trip to Colca Canyon
          An ok trip but a few too many stops to buy local trader’s gifts. Also the optional thermal baths looked uninviting so we gave that a miss. The breakfast was average at best and the optional buffet lunch was expensive for what was provided. Nice to see the canyon and condors though.

          Depends What You’re Looking For...
          My girlfriend Tori and I went on this tour. We got picked up at the hotel on time and the bus was nice. Driver and the host were nice and knowledgeable however we found it to be a very long day for what you get out of it. The ‘breakfast included was just coffee/tea and a couple bread rolls with jam and you had to pay 2 soles more for a small portion of eggs. And then when you get to the various stops you have 10-15 minutes for the view and pictures and an hour for the main condor viewing. We went to the hot springs as well and they were relaxing although very unclean and didn’t look like they were maintained well (you get 45mins total). We are a very easygoing couple and it wasn’t the worst day however we just found that it’s A-LOT of sitting on the bus for a couple views and you’re gone from 2AM to 5PM which in hindsight we feel it would’ve been better to do other things around Arequipa or a shorter tour for what we got out of it.

          City Tour great experience
          The tour was wonderful! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and had the curtesy to give each of us a pin with the Escude de Arequipa All the places we visited were fabulous and one can spend more time in each of them. My only suggestion us to tell the visitors to bring a snack. We tried “Choclo con queso” corn and cheese which was delicious!!

          Colca Canyon TWO DAYS
          You cannot do a 1-day tour of Colca Canyon in 1 day. We always do it yearly in August as a 2-Day Trip! You MUST be at the Canyon's Miradors (Lookout points) by 7-8 am. The Cruz del Condor on Aug 30 and 31 were WAY too busy with 100s to 1000s of tourists. We stopped at one outside Cabanaconde and then one after Cruz del Condor. it worked out VERY well. Check my latest Facebook post (3 Sept 2019).

          Not satisfying
          The tour wasn‘t as nice as expected. It is too expensive for what it was! The bus drive to Chivay was Okay although our guide Herman was not very enthousiastic as if he wouldn‘t really like to be there. When we arrived in Chivay, a local came to pick us up with the horse. The guide didn’t speak with us during the whole trip, he wouldn’t have given any information if we wouldnt have asked. His answers were always very short. Although we spoke in Spanish with him! The equipment for the riding was very uncomfortable. The trip to the Condor Cross was nice and we saw lots of them. The drive back to arequipa was horror! The driver Hector was very tired and I saw his eyes getting smaller and smaller in the mirror. As the road is very dangerous, I didn‘t feel safe at all. The guide fell asleep next to the driver. After I asked the driver to make a toilet break (not in order that I can pee but in order that he gets the break he definetley needed) But after the break, it wasn‘t better. I told our guide that I can see that the driver is tired and that it would maybe be a good idea to keep him awake. He laughed at me and told the driver 2 minutes later what I ve said (they didnt know I understand spanish!!) They laughed about me but the driver knew that I was right. He put some coca leaves in his mouth, put his glasses on and opened the window to stay awake...My critic is that he should have taken a break and the guide shouldn‘t sleep next to him but speak to him. It is his responsibility that his clients feel safe and..survive!! I wouldn‘t recommend this tour.
