I started my trip to Peru alone. then by chance I met three girls from Paraguay who introduced me to GoToPeru for the raimbow mountain tour. They were very kind. Agency of young, prepared and professional boys.

Great Tour
Sep 2019 • Couples
3 of us had our own tour with guide Linder. He was very knowledgeable and professional. Our driver was Kenny G. The hike was not as difficult as we had expected from previous reviews and description, however the first few hundred feet, until we got used to the altitude, were a little difficult. Linder advised to take it slow and we never felt rushed throughout the tour. Buffet lunch was good, but we had a late start so were one of the last ones through. Do bring a hat and gloves. It was nice weather, but did get windy and colder at one point. When in Peru, try to have small bills and chane for the washrooms. Many charge for their use. The mountains themselves are incredible. Everytime we turned around, the view was more spectacular. We would highly recommend this tour!

Great Trip
Jul 2019 • Family
The trip to rainbow mountain and red valley was memorable. Both the guide and the driver were very polite and always attentive, which is why I am giving this a 4 start. There are some improvements that could be made. 1. Send the group an advance directive on the weather! It was freezing the day we went and we (and some others in the group) were poorly prepared. Had I been a bit warmer, I could have scaled to the top of Rainbow Mountain. 2. if it's cold, ask if the group can sit indoors to eat the food for breakfast. It was freezing! 3. Please please be attentive to vegetarian needs. There was no 'hot' food for vegetarians in the freezing cold and hardly 4 items to pick from a buffet of at least 10 items. The body needs nourishment just as anyone. 4. The tour guide could have been more attentive to me. I saw other tour guides with even bigger groups help those who were struggling to the top. Ours did not help me or even talk to me at all and that was disappointing.

Challenging Day
Jun 2019
Hotel pick-up at 4:30am, followed by 1.5hr bus ride on a relatively smooth road, a stop for breakfast, and another 1.5 bus ride on a rough, dusty, winding road.

The view is beautiful, but there are many people at the top and it is crowded and difficult to take photos.

We have quite a bit of experience hiking and did this tour after spending a week in Cusco and doing other hikes, but had difficulty with the altitude.

On a group tour, it is necessary to try to keep up and do the hike within the time limit so that others are not waiting. I am sure I would have felt better had I been able to stop for more breaks. The guides were great and one always waited to bring up the rear, so while we were behind, we never felt that we were alone without assistance.

There are horses available that can be ridden most of the way up (the steepest part requires hiking) and back down for S/20 each way. They are small horses, so taller/heavier people cannot ride them.

I booked an English tour and received 2 confirmation emails in English, but we were picked up by a Spanish group. Luckily, Gotoperu had a second van traveling to Rainbow Mountain at the same time and the guides in that van spoke English, so they switched us to that group when we stopped for breakfast.

This was a grueling day. Nothing against Gotoperu, however—the guides were very good. I know that people experience this hike differently, and I think it has a lot to do with how the altitude impacts you.
