We went with Carlitos tours on their standard 2-day Colca canyon tour (conventional tour with short treks) - it was our best experience in Peru. Our guide was Jon (John?

I am highly recommending Carlitos Tours to anyone who plans a hike to Colca canyon. The service is professional and personal. Carlitos Tours provides free transportation to and from the hotel (from bus station or airport of Arequipa) and the representative of the company provides at your hotel the pre-tour briefing. The groups are small (we had 3 persons +... More

We went from Arequipa on a private tour to Colca Canyon. Our guide was Jean, and our driver was Joel. Jean was very knowledgeable about the area and looked after our comfort and well-being, even to pre-ordering a heater for our room in Cabanaconde, and having oxygen delivered to our room when my travelling companion needed it. Joel is a... More

We used Carlitos Tours for the overnight tour of colca canyon leaving from Arequipa, Peru. This was a really good choice for us. Carlitos offered free transit to and from the airport to our hotel, which helped enormously! Carlitos himself arrived and was extremely friendly and upbeat! Later, we were met by a guide who helped us plan the next... More

Carlitos Tours is an excellent company with whom I booked a 2 day 1 night tour in the Colca Canyon with a friend. Our tour guide Veronica was fantastic! She was incredibly understanding and patient with me when I had difficulty with my ascent from the Colca Canyon on the 2nd day. Arturo, which is the coordinator who helped with... More

We did the Colca Canyon 2D/1N tour with them. It was a semi-private tour, where transportation was shared with other tourists but we had our own guide. They are not the cheapest tour but it is an all-inclusive tour aside from water and mules. I've calculated: the extra services they provided that you would otherwise have to pay for it... More

We did the 2D/1N Colca Canyon tour with Carlito's Tours. It was an amazing experience! Carlitos was our guide... a real packet of dynamite and very informative. The trip to Colca Canyon is very interesting and we saw many Vicunas along the way. We also stopped at various small villages and went for short hikes. We stayed in the lovely... More

We went with Carlitos Tours because they had great reviews and are the only agency that pay for health insurance for their guides. Also EVERYTHING was included, unlike other tours, they also pick you up on arrival in Arequipa, and take you to the airport/bus station on departure. The whole experience was excellent!! Really well run, thoughtfully planned, yummy food,... More

2 days before the start of the tour which we had booked months in advance, we received a short (rude) email, informing us that our tour has been cancelled. The reason they mentioned was that we have not been in touch with them for some time. However, since everything was arranged and confirmed (we already received a booking reference code... More
