Killawasi Lodge Colca Canyon tour

Hello,

My husband and I are considering a guided tour with Killawasi Lodge in Colca Canyon. Has anyone done a guided tour with them before? The tour we're looking at takes us from Arequipa to Colca Canyon, we overnight at Killawasi and the next day we go see the condors and then go on to Puno. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

We're looking for a guided tour of the Canyon with some hiking (but not trekking) and we only have enough time to do an overnight stay. We're open to other companies, but would like one that follows the itinerary of Arequipa--->Colca Canyon--->Puno. Thanks for your help!

We did a couple years, except in reverse starting in Puno, and it was great. The first day you get to the hotel around lunchtime and they do a,guided 2 or 3 hour hike around the canyon finishing with a stop at a hot springs. The next day you are on a group bus tour to see the condors with a few scenic viewpoint stops along the way. You get back to Chivay around lunchtime day 2 in time to catch the 4m tourist bus to Puno that leaves mid afternoon.

After some considerable research and, partly based on wes032s comments, I just booked Killawasi for their 3D 2N trip from Arequipa to Puno. Not sure when you are planning on going but we seemed to get the last two rooms for mid August. They seemed very efficient in the booking process and recommmended some nice places to stay in Arequipa.

Thanks. We were able to reserve for the end of March 2016. We're traveling during the off-season so it's easier to book last minute.
