See condors close-up, soaring and flying on thermals in the Colca Canyon - the world's deepest.
Arequipa's historical centre, including Santa Catalina convent.
Look for hand-woven souvenirs made by the highly-skilled weavers in the area.
Gentle walks through stunning mountain scenery.
Marianne and driver from Arequipa to Colca Lodge were great. Very informative and Marianne was quite a character. Lovely bubbly personality. The driver was kind and drove safely.
Colca Lodge was amazing and it was great having the 3 nights here to relax. We did a half day tour of the canyon including the Condor cross, villages and surroundings. We used a guide and driver from the lodge that were excellent. On the second day we walked up to the local village and watched the school kids dancing in the main square - apparently they do this every morning from about 6.30am.
We then did a walk which took us through the village, past some amazing scenery and up to some pre-inca ruins and waterfall. Walking back to the lodge the path took us through the terraces of working farmland.
The food was good and the staff were good.

It was an amazing trip. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and were so impressed with Peru, the people we met and the variety of experiences. Not only did it live up to my expectations, it surpassed them. I was afraid I might be disappointed with the Inca Trail and Macchu Picchu because I've wanted to go there for as long as I can remember but that was a dream come true. Even the crowds didn't take from my enjoyment. The second day there when we climbed Huana Picchu and then had time to wander the site at our leisure was really magical. Finding the Inca Bridge was a bonus and there was hardly anyone else there too!
The Peruvians seem to be really working on building their tourism industry with extremely efficient and friendly and well trained and educated staff, clean cities, good buses and well maintained sites. We were very impressed by the number of schools even in remote areas. This was our first experience of South America but hopefully not the last.
Thanks again. We're busy recommending you to other friends!!

Organisation was excellent. We were happy with all of our guides, they were knowledgeable and personable. Food was great and I liked that all of the hotels had some history behind them. We loved the order; it was nice to have the slower paced Amazon after the big hike. I think if the Amazon had been first, I would have been impatient to get going and do more, but as it was, all the down time was much appreciated.

Want to know what and where to eat in the Galapagos Islands?
11th October, 2019 11:42 am
Eating out choices in the Galapagos Islands have blossomed, with many new bars, cafes and restaurants opening in recent years, as hotel-based holidays have become more popular. Top-end dining has truly yet to arrive at the Galapagos Islands due to its remote location and difficulty in importing ingredients. However, the three main islands, Santa Cruz, San Cristobal and Isabela, offer a wide range of restaurants. They suit almost every budget and cater for most dietary requirements, from vegan to vegetarian, gluten-free and more. What you will find is Ecuadorian and international cuisine featuring a lot of fish, rice, vegetables …
