Traveler Reviews

  • 11-Jul-2018

    My husband and I joined this tour. Our Lima to Cusco flight was an hour late, but we were being pick up at the airport right away when we arrived. Eddie was our tour coordinator. He called or meet with us every evening to make sure our day was going well, and also give us the information about the following day. All of our tour guides were knowledge and wonderful. We had a fantastic time Machu Picchu is amazing! We had a two hour guided tour, and our tour guide Catherine was wonderful. After the two hour guided tour, we re-enter again and hike two more hours. We had a really good time. I recommend this tour.

    I booked this tour via Viator and it was outsourced to Kantu Peru tours however when we went for the tours it was outsourced future with a number being done by Ecotours.

    The hotels were rather basic and so we paid a further usd60 each for better hotels

    Day 1- half day tour of Cusco.
    Hotel: los portales- nice interior. Close to temple of the sun. Small rooms, good breakfast.

    Tour- pick up was on . We then gathered at the cathedral and was split further into language based tours. Our guide was good. Also tours the temple of the sun, saysashuaman, taytambo and other sites outside Cusco

    Day2-sacred valley.
    Pick up poor- was punctual, drove around a bit to pick up the rest then was brought to a bigger bus parked outside the city. We then were told to get off as it was for a Spanish tour and joined the English tour when the smaller bus turned up.
    Our tour guide was below average, rather patronising and irritating.talked unnecessarily for most of the transfer which can only be described as verbal diarrhoea.

    We then were left in ollaytaytambo to walk to the train station to catch our Inca Peru train to Aguas calientes. I'm sure we were meant to be dropped of but they could be asked. We arrived in Aguas and the tour representatives wasn't there. We managed to find the hotel- inti puntu- average with basic room and was on the 5th floor with 8 flights of stairs.
    Our tour guide Jessie or Jessenia can to meet us at 7.30pm to explain the tour for Machu the next day- she was excellent and very professional

    Day3- Machu.

    This was an excellent tour thanks to Jessie. She was patient , knowledgeable and very professional. The tour went well. We finished at 9.45am after 2hours and 45 minutes. We then did the Inca trail to the sun gate.
    We took the 1612 back to ollaytaytambo and then another 2hours bus ride back to Cusco.

    Day 4 - Maras, moray, las salines.
    Hotel- royal Inka 1, great location, bigger rooms than los portales, good breakfast, complimentary welcome drinks and helpful staff.
    Tour guide was good and knowledgable.This tour was more cultural with a stop at Chichero to see some Quechuan culture/art making.

    Day5- rainbow mountain. This was an extra, again outsourced to Eco tours. 4.30am pick up then a 2hours travel followed by breakfast and then a further hour.Guide- average, talked about the hike, tips etc but little on the actually mountain. Nature or formation of colours.
    Lunch on the way back was average and via the 1hour bumpy roads and turns further two hours to Cusco.

    Day6- airport transferred.

    In all the hotel upgraded was a good idea but the price quoted is higher with the hotel upgrades and also with the addition of rainbow mountain.

    Guides vary between excellent to slight below average- could be better.
    pick up can be irritating with the drive around.
