Three Day Colca Canyon Trip
Nov 2019 • Couples
My wife and I spent 3 lovely days with Wilmar who evaluated our abilities and tweaked the trip to suit us. Wilmar is a very competent and likeable guide and organizer who is both entertaining and knowledgeable. We had a great trip and highly recommend booking treks with Peru Breathtaking Trips.

Colca Canyon to see the headwaters of the mighty Amazon River
Sep 2018 • Friends
I can't say enough about this 3 day trip to Colca Canyon to see the headwaters of the mighty Amazon River at 16,877' on Nevado Mismi with Wilmar Dias and our driver Hermano.

Wil patiently answered our hundreds of questions and Hermano heroically drove us through all the rough dirt roads. I'm so pleased I chose Peru Breathtaking Trips as we traveled places in the 4x4 that the big tour buses never go. The family stay in Sibayo was delightful, with gracious hosts and great meals, we learned a lot about the local culture as well as the Inca culture.

A memorable trip in Peru with Wilmar Aug 2018
Aug 2018 • Couples
we booked the private tour, with the Peru Breathtaking, a 3 days 2 nights trip from Arequipa to the Colca Canyon region :-) before the trip my wife looked up the info via Trip Advisor, ran info this Tour Agent, I was a bit doubtful if it's reliable to find a good operator via on-line ? her decision finally !!! the trip turned out to be a very memorable one :-) Wilmar, the guide, was nice, very R eliable, knowledge ! he is a young, yet mature man who know how to take care his customer ^_^ one thing we appreciate is that he won't "overdone" when he was trying to "brief" us the tourist attraction information, yet, when we found it interesting to inquire more in-depth, he was enthusiastic to tell us more, we learned a lot from him about the incan culture, the peruvian way of life ! on our way from Arequipa to Colca (1st day), the driver Huber, took a alternate road that was bumpy (roads condition), but we found it worthwhile as Wilmar took us to a mountain outlook, a easy hike, to see an ancient Incan cave, where we saw a lot of ancient walls paintings, in hindsight, we didn't believe the site, with such high value anthropologically, is so easily accessible without anyone to man it, not to mention any proper signage or entrance -.- Wilmar told us that he didn't bring every visitor here , it depends on the weather, the way he budget the time, we didn't ask him the details of his itinerary logistic behind, but we feel really thankful that we were there :-) the driver Huber, can't speak English, but he is a lovely young man too !

Oct 2017
We did a 3 day tour of the Colca Canyon. The guide Wilmer has an encyclopaedic knowledge of history and flora and fauna of the area. Very easy going and a well paced tour. Time spent admiring the view and the fauna was a real treat. The driver was very safe and the car new and clean. Would highly recommend.

Great Private Tour of Colca
May 2017 • Friends
We found this company because of a friend who visited Peru 2 years ago. We were a party of 4 looking for a tour of sightseeing and also some hiking. Wilmar was very prompt in sending us a proposal for our 3 days in Colca.
So, we started from Arequipa and drove towards Huambo and then to Cabanaconde(a bit bumpy road, not so high and less crowded) we stayed in Cabanaconde which is a little town with nice mountain views. The second day on our way to Colca Lodge we stop at famous Cruz Del Condor where we saw some of the Andean Condors.
Wilmar walked with us along the upper edge of the canyon for about 1 hour(nice walk). After stopping a couple of times we arrived to Colca Lodge for lunch. That afternoon we went walking to a little pre-inca town.
On our last day we left the hotel around 10am and drove back to Arequipa after the great days spent in Colca.
Thanks Wilmar and staff for making our visit a great one.

Breathtaking and unforgettable
Mar 2017
My boyfriend and I always wanted to visit Peru because we heard so many possitive things about the country. So, after some research we decided to take Peru Breathtaking Trips because of the great plan they offered.
We spent 15 days in Peru sightseeing, biking and trekking the most beautiful places, Started by touring Arequipa and trekking for 3 days the Colca Canyon. Then off to Lake Titicaca for a 1 day tour, what an awesome view.
Once in Cusco we visited Sacred Valley and did a biking tour in the area. We finished our tour by seeing the breathtaking Machu Picchu.
During our stay, our host Wilmar showed us all these places and shared his knowledge. He was the best tour guide we had.
Top Notch services from transportation to hotels and trains.
We will highly recommend this company to all our friends visiting Peru.

Excellent 3D/2N trip to Colca Canyon
Dec 2016 • Friends
We had an excellent trip to Colca Canyon (3 Days/2 Nights). Early wake-up at Arequipa and amazing ride to Chivay (including exploding vulcano sighting). Good breakfast at Chivay & early visit at Cruz Del Condor. Then we walked from Cabanaconde to Llahuar (really wonderfull location). At day 2 we went from Llahuar to Sangalle Oasis (nice but bring good mosquito repellent). Day 3 is all uphill to Cabanaconde.
Amazing walk, breathtaking views and exceptional guiding & service bij Wilmar.
A big, big recommendation !!!

Excellent tour
Oct 2016 • Couples
We came across Peru Breathtaking Trips when frantically searching for a transfer between Arequipa and Yanque after I discovered that car rentals were all closed when we would be returning to Arequipa. So a week before we were heading to Peru we got in contact with a couple of companies. Wilmar was fast to respond and extremely helpful in setting something up. Not only were we able to arrange transportation with him, but we also put together a 3 day tour of the region. It included a lot of the standards, Vicuna spotting, Colca Canyon, etc, but as a private tour we were able to get a lot more out of each of the experiences. Wilmar was also very impressively versed in the area and was able to give us so much interesting information as we went along. My only regret is that we didn't speak Spanish so we weren't able to communicate as much as I would have liked with our driver. However, Wilmar's English was great. It was a great trip.

A sour taste (and not just the pisco)
Aug 2016 • Couples
We did the 3 day colca trek which was excellent. Our guide Vladimir was super and adapted the route according to our requirements. He was extremely knowledgeable and engaging...absolutely no complaints.

However, we did the petroglyph tour the following day and were a little disappointed. We were puzzled at the 330USD price tag for two with no lunch included. This was nearly the same as the 3 day colca tour that came with food, guide and accommodation included. The tour consists of a 6 hour car journey for a one hour stroll around the petroglyphs and the possibility to have a quick lunch after, albeit rather more rushed than we would have liked. We wouldn't recommend this tour and we felt it didn't represent value for money.

Hello, Thanks for writing the review. Good to know that you liked the trek in Colca Canyon. Regarding the other tour, we will consider your comments to improve our service. As a separate comment the difference in pricing was because the petroglyph tour was a fully private while the trek was not. Once again thanks for the review, we will work on fixing details for our tours. Regards,

Terrific Guide, Wonderful Trip
Jul 2016 • Solo
My 3-day Colca Canyon trek with Peru Breathtaking Trips was one of the true highlights of my visit to Peru. Though still a young man, Wilmar has a surprisingly deep and profound understanding of the land he clearly loves. He's supportive and encouraging, and just plain fun to be around. He filled our time with tons of information about the legends, history, geography, flora, and fauna of the region, yet never seemed to be reciting mere facts. He clearly enjoys sharing his knowledge with others. He's also very intuitive, quickly adjusting the pace of our trek when I needed to slow down a bit, and picking up when I was feeling fine. I selected Wilmar because his reviews were good and his responses to my e-mails were quick and thorough. I couldn't be happier with my choice. I'm so glad I got to experience Colca through his eyes. Most highly recommended.
