    Tour operators delivered what was promised on the Viator listing, and more. Our Machu Pichu guide Sergio was quite knowledgeable and extended the tour well more than 3 hours (instead of the promised 2 hours, which would have been very hurried and not as satisfactory).

    The weather was not as terrible as it could have been, considering this is in the high Andes, and cooperated just enough to have good Machu Pichu experience.

    We opted for the 2-day tour with the Maras and Moray add-on and the Waynapicchu add-on. The company took care of arranging all of the transportation and guides for the different places, and it was an easy way to see a lot without booking multiple tours. Our tour guides, Guido for Maras and Moray and Maria for Machupicchu, provided excellent information and offered to take lots of pictures to remember our trip. Most of the time it was just the two of us, and only one additional person at Machupicchu, which made logistics super easy. Our driver, Jordi, also did a great job.

    My tour guides had this trip down to a fine science. The tours were wonderful, as I opted to see Moras and Maray before heading to Machu Picchu. Both guides each day gave us a wonderful sense of history and fascinating information and made sure we had no problems with hotels and travel. Machu Picchu was all I hoped it would be!! And in the end, my train was severely delayed on the return but they had a driver waiting for me to take me back to Cusco and he was lovely! I cant say enough good things about the experience! Would highly recommend them to anyone!!!

    This tour is awesome. Definitely a must do on your bucket list. However, this is a very active tour, lots of steps and hills. Absolutely beautiful scenery. Tour guides were great very informative. I would highly recommend.

    I was a single traveler who decided to take this tour to meet my husband who hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. While all of the arrangements were in order, I felt like none of the guides cared if I was there or not. Having travelled quite a bit, I was not afraid the ask questions and seek out my guide, but should not have had to do that. The person greeting me at the train who took me to my accommodation talked on her cell phone the whole time and hardly even greeted me when I identified myself to her. I did not hear from the next day’s guide until after 7pm for a 4:30am meeting time the following morning. It felt like the Machu Picchu guide didn’t care about the small group and certainly didn’t go out of his way to communicate plans or expectations. For the cost of this tour, I was extremely disappointed - it was the low point of my time in Peru.

    I chose this company because of good Viator reviews. Perhaps it was once ok, but our experience was less than stellar. The drivers couldn't speak English. On way there, driver was late

  • 18-Feb-2018

    This was a great, comprehensive tour of the Salt Mines, Maras-Moray, and Machu Picchu. The guides were very friendly and helpful, the transportation logistics were clear and easy to follow, and it was a great way to do the trip over two days.

  • 21-Jan-2018

    perfect and recommedable tour

  • 17-Nov-2017

    The tour agency was very thorough. Their driver and tour guide were very professional. We believe we received excellent service at a good value and we had an excellent tour.

    Freddi and all the associates were punctual, friendly, and eager to help. Our driver to Oluntantambo train station pointed out local sights and stopped to let us get photos. Would use their services again without hesitation.
