Seeing the condors was excellent. Can be crowded but that's because it's so unique and well worth a visit. Don't go with overly high expectations and you will be very satisfied with the experience.

This trek was not for the faint hearted. Climbing out of the canyon was gruelling. We had a great guide and stayed in a lovely homestay. Watching the condors was amazing.

Hi Clare. Yes you can do it without a Tour, you can go to the bus station or Terminal and take a bus to Caylloma and its really cheap. There you can walk or take other buses to the next towns.
