The trip of a lifetime! My best friend and I chose this tour to celebrate our 30th Birthdays - it was Amazing!!! We had a really nice time visiting Cusco, Machu Picchu and going to the Rainbow Mountain. The tour guides were really nice and we told us a lot about everything. We visited in November and for Machu Picchu this was amazing - it was misty in the morning and sunny by mid-morning, so we got to see it with all weather types. Highly recommend going at 6am and spending most of the day there - circuit 2 and 4 were great! We even hiked up one of the mountains. Carlos, Judy, and Wilson were great and really educated us about each site.

Great way to experience Peru The tour was a great way to experience Cusco, the sacred valley, Machu Picchu and the Vinicunca mountain. We only had 4 full days, and it was the right amount of time. I was there with my best friend celebrating our 30th, so we will always cherish this moment. The tour guides (Carlos, Judy, and Wilson) were very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped us get immersed to the history of the Incas, and made us feel comfortable throughout the trip. The accommodation provided as part of the package was very adequate, and the overall experience was great.
Encantos en Cusco Estamos muy contentos con los servicios que hemos recibido. Desde el recojo en el aeropuerto, fueron puntuales con un cartel con nuestro nombre. La habitacion que pedimos fue hermosa en el hotel Mayu con vista a la calle 7 borreguitos, Royer nos atendio muy bien 10/10. La agencia se comunicaba con nosotros todos los dias, para saber como nos hiba en el tour o si es que necesitamos ayuda. Realmente muy serviciales. En aguas Calientes Daniel, estuvo atento con nosostros . El tour en Machu Picchu fue realmente magico. Tenemos que agradecer mucho a Alicia por el tour bien planificado y a Jose Angel por todas las atenciones todos los dias, nunca nos dejo solos.
Servicio de calidad Buena atención, personalizada, se adecuan a las necesidades, escuchan sugerencias y son muy amables, muchas gracias!
