I booked two days Colca canyon tour in American Tour company Arequipa. The food they provided during this 2 days trek was very bad. They also charged me double for buffet meal instead if 15 soles I had to pay 30 soles.

We did the Colca Canyon with Land Adventures and I really liked the guide and the whole experience. The walk in and out is a real adventure and quite difficult. We saw tons of condors and we really enjoyed that, I recommend it.
