You can’t go wrong with Rojelio and Arturo!!!!

I did this with my friend. We got picked up from our hotel by Rojelio at 4:00 a.m. and in our group were a total of 9 tourists.

First stop after 1:30 drive was for a decent buffet breakfast. We had lunch at the same restaurant and there were plenty of buffet options including soup, for every taste and food restrictions you might have! The food was very fresh as it seems like this restaurant is a hub for all excursions happening in the area.
Second stop after another hour or so of driving was to switch to ATVs. We got riding instructions on English and Spanish; pretty simple, straightforward and safe as they provide hamlets with visor. Having sunglasses can be helpful. Get ready for A LOT OF DUST as you ride! Lol Everyone is wearing 2 face masks due to local government COVID restrictions so that was helpful. Riding back to the van, after hiking the mountain was more interesting as we got to ride at 75 km/hour for a short time.

The hike starts at 4700 m and is not an easy one even if it’s only 2 km. You have the option to rent a horse or ride on the back of a local person motorcycle for 70 soles. One person in our group had to be put on oxygen and our guides were all prepared! The impressive part was that they went back and forth on the mountain as we were hiking at different paths, to ensure we are all okay. Pretty impressive effort!!

At the top Rojelio took some awesome pics of me and my friend! He’s a very good photographer!

The view is breathtaking no matter what direction you are looking! Be prepared for gusty winds on the top at over 5000m and snow on your way down, as it happened to us in August!

Both guides were amazing the entire trip making sure we are having a great time and we make memorable memories! The entire experience was amazing and we recommend you both Arturo and Rojelio!!! A unique, beautiful experience!!!

Thank you Rojelio and Arturo!!
Love, Magda and Chris!

I was the last to be picked up at 4:00 am in the morning by our competent driver Raul. Rogelio, our guide, explained what our day would entail. Our group was friendly, happy and energetic, matching the spirit of Rogelio.
We drove several hours before arriving at the starting point for our adventure. We all sat down for a breakfast buffet cooked for us by a local family. Afterwards, we climbed aboard our ATV and strapped on helmets. Rogelio led the caravan of ATVs at a fast pace. We all had huge smiles on our faces as we splashed over puddles and traversed over the dirt roads. The landscape was vast and the roads filled with alpacas. I stopped every few meters to take a few photos and take in the scenery.
After an hour of riding the ATVs, we arrived as the base of the path up to Rainbow Mountain. We were now going to walk/hike 4 KM up to the mountain. I wore my camp slippers as I was not expecting to hike. Even with my unsuitable footwear, I was determined to walk to the vista point more than 1,000 meters from the start. The hike was one of the hardest, yet satisfying things I have done in my life. The combination of altitude (>5,000 meters) and my foot gear, it was challenging. 3 in our group were not able to overcome the altitude and turned back. Rogelio ran between those that turned back and those who made it to the summit with ease. He made sure that all of the guests were attended too and no one felt left out. I was amazed that he actually ran up to me without much effort.
After summiting the mountain, we all rode back to the starting point where we sat down to a hot lunch of local cuisine.
Rogelio deserves more than 5 stars for his support for everyone on the trip. I have recommended this trip to two of my friends and would happily recommend to anyone looking for a great adventure

Rainbow mountain by ATV was the best highlight of our week long trip to Lima and Cusco. The views are stunning and worth doing! Perhaps even better than Machu Picchu. We went in October and had great weather. The last bit of hiking is very tiring but renting the horse helps. We went as a double on one motorcycle. The guides were fun and tell you what you need to bring by the time you are picked up. Was probably 15 of us in our group. Arturo our contact was easy to communicate with leading up to the trip. Keep in mind the bathrooms available at the ATV base camp are only 2 rural stalls without running water or toilet paper, and everyone needed to use them, so if you can use the toilets at the breakfast restaurant!

Terrible. I booked this trip months in advance, and I never heard from them. So the day before the trip I both emailed and texted them. I sent a couple of texts before they responded at 7:30pm that night. It seemed like they didn’t even know I was even booked so I sent them a screen shot of the booking. I asked what time will we be picked up and they said 3:40am. Little frustrated at no response but okay. Well I got sick in the middle of the night. Huge headache and was throwing up. I sent a message at 2:00am saying I won’t be able to make it because I was not feeling well. They sent a text at 4:00am saying I was a bad Pearson. I’m a bad person because I am sick? I already paid for it, I never asked for a refund but they said I was a bad person. How horrible is that? I even have a screen shot of the text for proof.

This was seriously the best!! Our guide Arturo and the driver picked us up at 3:30am we did pick up 4 more people than we were on our way. We drove for about 3 hours till we got to a locals house where breakfast was waiting for us. Food was delicious lots of options Buffett style. Bathrooms are available there.

We then got on the ATV/quads and headed towards rainbow mountain. The ride there was breathtaking everywhere you looked. There were alpacas crossing right in front of us. Arturo kept checking on us to make sure we were safe knew how to drive etc. We rode about 45 minutes to 1 hour till we arrived at the base of rainbow mountain.

At the base of rainbow mountain Arturo takes pictures for us, gives us advice then we start to walk. He’s walking with us has us stop to catch our breath. This was helpful even stopping for 30 seconds completely re-energizes you. He has coco leaves to help with the altitude sickness.

After walking for about 1.87 miles or so you have reached the summit and it’s totally worth it. Just so you know it’s just about 17,000 feet plus or minus a few feet above sea level so you definitely need to take your time. (The hike took us about 1 hour 30 minutes then we spent about 30 minutes on the summit taking pictures and enjoying the view.)

After we were done we walked back to the ATVs rode back about 45 minutes to 1 hour to the locals house where we had a great lunch then the drive back to the hotel.

The drive to and from is beautiful and you get to really see different parts of Peru. Arturo was really the best guide he took pictures for us and kept checking on us. He wanted us to be safe and have a great time.

Also, for this dress warm bring gloves. As you’re hiking you’ll get warm but you’ll want the warm clothes for the atv ride.

**also, I did see a negative review just wanted to let people know we were picked up in a sprinter type van it was nice and comfortable. It is Peru so the streets are bumpy no matter what car you’re in it’s a bumpy ride.**

We booked a tour the afternoon before the tour and got up a early in the morning for the tour but no one came to our hostel to pick us up. We tried to contact them through the whatsapp contact and trip advisor. On whatsapp the message was set to recieved and read and they never replied. On trip advisor they sent a very brief message informing us that trip had issues on rainbow mountain.

They never informed us of the issues and never contacted us back about a refund. It looks like they are ghosting us now. I wouldn't recommend this tour operator at all.

We very highly recommend this trip. It is a combination of ATV riding and hiking with breath taking scenery. It is an early wake up but totally worth it. Arturo was amazing very attentive and knowledgeable. We were a group of six and felt safe at all times. They also carry oxygen if needed.. Noteworthy: Goggles and mask are recommended because ATVs can create dust. Also, bring your own gloves and A back pack to store the extra layers of clothes. The trail to the mountain is very stable and easy to walk. The distance was about 1.7 miles to the base of the mountain. You can opt to rent a horse for 60 soles one way to the base of the mountain 120 round trip.. The hiking to the summit is an additional 20 minutes of uphill mildy difficult climbing, windy and cold. We recommend gloves to the summit and head covering. The hike back to the ATV is enjoyable. There is an outhouse to use the bathroom where the ATVs are parked, bring your own toilet paper.. The route has high terrains with narrow switch back cliffs. There are options for double riders. Breakfast and Lunch was included. You will need to pay 20 soles to enter rainbow mountain and 2 soles per passport to get your passport stamped. Bring plenty to drink.

My husband and I were obsessed with our tour to Rainbow Mountain! The scenery on the way to the mountain from the area where we picked up our quad bikes was breathtaking. Our tour guide, Arturo, was extremely helpful and made sure we were safe throughout the entire experience. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone interested in visiting Rainbow Mountain using a more adventurous route.

This was the best thing I've done in cusco. The views from the ride are absolutely unbelievable and the quads are well taken care of. I will definitely come back and do this again, just for the ride up. If you're doing rainbow mountain i
definitely recommend this way. Please be aware there is still an hour of hiking uphill after the ride. You can pay an extra 50 soles for a ride on the back of a motorcycle

This tour was actually a two for one deal and includes ATVing and hiking to Rainbow Mountain. The beauty of God's creation as you navigate in between the valleys over the fresh water sources through the alpaca herds and up more than 17,000 ft (if you dare) to snow capped mountains is absolutely breath-taking and amazing. Even with the early morning rise/departure - this adventure is totally worth it. Couldn't find a better way to spend the day with my family nor a better group of tour guides!!
