If you travel to Arequipa, you should not miss the Reality Tour by Miguel Fernández. He will drive you arround for ~4hours to look behind the scenes of touristic Peru. It is worth every dollar. We visited a local cementary where Miguel talked a lot about the local customs for celebrating the dead. Afterwards he took us to a local... More

We had an amazing tour of the non-touristy parts of Arequipa with Miguel, including the cemetery, a child day care centre he has set up, the market, and the stone quarry. Along the way Miguel talk to us about the economy, politics and history of Peru. He is a fascinating guy and has perfect English. I would thoroughly recommended this... More

The trip was very good. Everything was as I expected even better. Despite beatiful landscapes our guide told us many intresting stories about andean people and andeans mountain that you wont find in the internet. I recommend this travel operator to everyone - private tour in price of commercial :)

We went on the reality tour with Miguel, and we would like to recommend it to anyone coming to Arequipa. It's a really informative and eye opening experience that shows you the other side of Peru that you don't often see. It doesn't feel like you're invading people's privacy as everyone seems very happy to talk to you. The money... More

The tour I booked was good, but we had transportation problems. The tour started at Arequipa, on the way to ¨La cruz del cóndor¨, the car broke down. So we were translated to another bus, but there were not enough seats for all, so some people had to travel standing up for a while. That starting part made us a... More

An excellent, informative and unusual tour this is one for those wanting to understand modern Peruvian issues. Miguel is a fantastic host, passionate about making Peru a better place and to educating tourists about the hidden lives of the poorer classes. His tour takes you to a number of places to show you both what life can be like and... More

The Tour was very authentic and showed the non touristic parts of Arequipa. For us the Best part was the visit of the stonemasons and talking to one of the workers. He even showed us how his exhausting work is done. Our guide Yolanda was really nice and qualified. I would totally recommend this Tour espacially for those who do... More

One of the most interesting tours I have been on. Guide is excellent and you learn a lot about the real Peru - both the good and bad. Highly recommended.

My teen-aged son and I did the Reality tour with Miguel and the City tour with Laura. Very different tours but both with a window into the realities of Peruvian life. The tours were a nice balance of information and "walk around" time. Lots of information that will help the hapless tourist comprehend one's surroundings. Highly recommended!!

Thank Jean N
