We booked the tour with Ventura travel, because we were attracted by the idea of small groups and of being picked up at 6:30 instead of at 3!! We could't be happier with our choice!! We were lucky that the "small" group ended up being just us and we had a wonderful time with

My friend and I were looking for an activity to do while staying in Arequipa. Luckily we stumbled across Ventura, which provides an incredible experience in which you travel with a local guide and have the opportunity to try authentic local food (your guide takes you to a buffet

Response from Raoul C, Director de Relaciones con Clientes at 2-Day Backpacker Colca Canyon Trek from Arequipa
Responded 19 Aug 2018
good morning SIR First of all, I can not apologize for anything! You are a very complicated customer from the beginning. You say, we are a family of isrraelitas we do not have much money, we are very understandable please Family Your service is very expensive for Us.You ask for a special price, that your children of 9, 8 and 11 years can be in a single room together with you. Our company has 2 years of work, all our clients have the same service, the same type of transport, even many customers are happy with our transport SUV 2016 a service that we include everything. We do not understand you, WHAT YOU WANT? You ask for all the time that you are treated like a king, because you pay an amount of money that is below our normal standard. We are happy and proud of our work and the very good valuation of clients who really appreciate fair work, We are really sorry for how you think and how to make you happy. A work of many years many happy groups, the same service and you complain that everything is very bad, that is unfair, I am Raul I am always happy to do a personalized job with our clients, visiting the day before the tour for a breefing to see that everything goes right. I work as a guide since 18 years and I speak English very well. I am not perfect, I also make mistakes, but I will never understand you. I wait for you the last day at your hotel to talk with you, but you just turn your head and do not want to listen. You believe that you are always right. you only complain about the food, the transport, the guide and also about me and what you pay. Your phrase l will always remember. that we should add more money and treat you like a king. I'd better wish you a happy trip!

Took a private tour for 2 persons, cost was higher but was worth it, Christian the guide was excellent - good English, knowledgeable, helpful. It's 4 hours drive before starting going down which is really hard but with fascinating views. Way up was even harder but seeing the
