What a wonderful trip! The breakfast is on the smaller side so load up on snacks. The lunch is FABULOUS! The hike is very hard but you can rent a horse/donkey if you’d like. The lake and mountains are beautiful! The tour made everything so easy and informative. Definitely recommend

This was such an amazing experience! PLEASE NOTE: I am a fit 30 year-old woman who does average amounts of hiking, and due to the strenuous nature of this hike, as well as altitude sickness, I ended up opting to rent a donkey to take me up the mountain! It is NO JOKE. That being said, riding a donkey up a mountain was a very cool Peruvian experience and I loved every minute of it! The Lagoon is GORGEOUS and totally worth it. My one disappointment was that the tour guide, after I asked, informed me that the Condor outlook no longer exists due to tourists showing up with drones, which ruined the condor habitat (humans suck). I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone. The food was also delicious! The drive was not too long as it was broken up by the meals. Be prepared to get picked up SUPER EARLY.

It was amazing!!!! Punctuality in the search, impeccable and variable coffee, attentive and careful guide. Even opting to go on horseback, he kept following until everyone who chose to do so was properly on their horses. Lunch without much variety but it was delicious. Transportation ok and careful. And the best, the view pays off !!!!
