      The Rainbow Valley Tour was an amazing tour. Early in the morning, I was greeted by the guide and not much later picked up by the bus. Its about a 3hrs drive to a little village where breakfast is served at a local families house. From there we went to the valley and started the trek. Be prepared for the differences in heights and different levels of air/oxygen. The hike is a great experience, the guide Edwin was great. In the valley, the weather changes every other minute. When I made it to the top, it just had become misty/cloudy. Even though it was a great hike and definitely a place to go to when visiting Peru!

      You must be in good physical condition altitude is uncomfortable to be at 5200 meters high is worth the scenery is spectacular and an incredible view that is in the list of 100 things before your die, you must carry water and chocolates to have energy at the end It is a great reward. Great Tour amazing , thanks for everything .

      The 1 day tour is a long day and the hike can be challenging for some due to the altitude, but the views are amazing once you reach the top. There was an abundance of local food for breakfast and lunch. Well worth it.

      The landscape was gorgeous. However, it was not worth spending money on this tour. Food was not good. The group was very slow so we went ahead and we had very little interaction with guides.

      If you have dietary restrictions, bring your own food. This is a long day.
      Gave rep list of foods I can't eat, was told this was ok, when we got there the info had not been passed on, and I was only given food I couldn't eat. There is nowhere else nearby to buy food.
      The views from the top are stunning. Worth doing for this.
      The trek is very hard due to the altitude - up to 5200 metres. Even if you are physically fit you may need to hire a horse. Do not pay the horse people directly! You are supposed to pay on the gate on the way out. Fee for the horse should be 70 to 80 sol. The horse people may try to lead you round the other way and overcharge you. Keep an eye on where they are taking you and try to stick with the rest of the group.

      This was one of the worst tours I've ever been. You can get the same tour on Cusco for 1/5 of the price. I asked around the people on my same tour I they paid 1/5 of what I paid. The service is terrible. We never saw the guide during the whole trekking, they didn't have any oxygen, they charged apart from entrance and horse service. The place is amazing but don't waste your money. Book your tour when you arrive to Cusco.
