We were very happy using Peruvian Colca Trails and having Andres Calcina as our guide. Our hiking group wanted to explore southern Peru as it is our first trip to South America. Andres developed a two week program for us that covered the towns of Ica, Nasca, Arequipa, Puno, Lake Titicaca, Cusco and Machu Picchu. His deep knowledge in the history of his country kept us interested to learn more about Peru. He is very descriptive in his explanation. He is always on time and never misses an opportunity to personalize our experience each day. The Colca Canyon by far was our favorite hike and also Andres’ area of expertise. He guided us through the beautiful trails, explained the vegetation and the history of the region. He also made sure that everyone was safe and that we arrived back to Chivay on time. Another highlight of visiting the Canyon and staying in Chivay was the cultural show and folk dancing presented at one of the local restaurants. We had fun interacting with other guests and joining in the dances. Another bonus, Andres is a great folk dancer!
The accommodation he reserved for us were comfortable and restaurants he suggested were great and reasonably priced. We are very satisfied with all the places we visited. Thank you Andres for giving us an experience that is not to be forgotten.
