  • Great tour that covers the basics of Cusco. Our guide was great!

  • This is a great tour of Cusco that takes you to most of the significant sights around Cusco in four hours. The guide was fantastic!

  • 가이드 Eloi는 매우 해박하고 재미있는 안내자였습니다. 경제적이고 융통성있는 스케쥴과 경로로 관광을 이끌어주었습니다. 잉카 문명의 위대함과 스페인 침입의 역사에 대해 자세히 설명해주었습니다. 오후에 5시간 정도 진행된 쿠스코 시내와 근교 유적 관광은 매우 알찼습니다. 마지막에 알파카 가게에 들른 것은 조금 아쉬운 점이었습니다.

  • Took the same tour before with other operator and the guide gave better details/explanations on some areas of the tour. Puccapuccara was not visited in the tour, but most operators include it in this option.

  • We were very happy with our tour guide. He was very informative and helpful. One of the best
    we've ever had.

  • Although this the tour guide Adrian was great and very knowledgeable, I gave it a three stars because I never knew who the tour company was. The hand-off from pick-up to organizer to tour guide was disorganized.
