A different experience! It was a personalized tour where iconic neighborhoods of Arequipa were visited. Different views of the city and a very interesting closure in the oldest neighborhood called San Lázaro. With its anguished stone streets and multiple churches between El Barrio and the main square. A lot of history and many details that the tour allowed us to know and open our minds.

It was an interesting tour to get to know the area around Arequipa. The last stop could be saved (horse riding, old, simple mill). It got dark and the last 1/2 hour you can see nothing of the surroundings.

Great tour, option included English speaking tour, guide didn’t realize this so we had to ask and guide had minimal English. But did his best.

This was a great way to get an overview of the City of Arequipa, some of the surround suburbs and countryside.

Great tour to see as much sights as possible in a short period of time. Very friendly and helpful guides.
