    We wanted a way to see the main sights of Cusco in one afternoon, with a little more history than if we were to just look at everything ourselves. This tour did all of that, plus organized the day so it was easy and efficient to see everything without having to order cars, follow maps, etc. Our guide was very kind and educated, and our driver was good and safe!

    Tour guide was very proficient with the history of the city. We visited churches, archeological sites, markets, and other interesting places with Inkan history. He has a vast knowledge to share. We really enjoyed his sharing the culture, traditions and history of the places we visited.

    Cusco is a pretty small city, and this tour was a great way to see everything in one go. Our tour guide was super friendly and knowledgeable, giving us information we never would have gotten if we toured the attractions on our own. We really loved the market and the church, and lucked into walking by the 12-angle stone while no one else was around. Definitely a good way to spend the afternoon.

    Nice tour, however our guide was not particularly in a good shape that day. But very eloquent and instructed. We had the impression that he expedite the end of the tour.

    I had just landed and was on my own and this Cusco tour with Viajes Pacifico was a perfect way to start out my trip and get the lay of the land. The guides explanation of Cusco's history was wonderful and the sites even more so! Beautiful place and fabulous tour guide!!!!!

    Most of this tour was spent bumping around in Cusco traffic. We went to another hotel on the other side of town presumably to pick up other passengers - they were presumably no shows but there was no explanation. After a brief tour of the markets we navigated back to the same hotel to pick up a couple who by now were presumably an hour late in a 3 hour tour - again no explanations or apologies or introductions. More traffic - a few stops and ended up back within 50 meters of our hotel to start the walking component. At no stage did the guide outline the itinerary or explain what was going on. While he gave quite interesting commentary when we did stop at various sights it was as if he was reciting by rote and at speed presumably to make up for lost time -he gave the impression he was clearly bored. Some of the views expressed on the inter-mixture of Catholicism and local beliefs were very interesting but somewhat dogmatic. Overall one of the worst of many city tours we have done world wide. Avoid.

    Incredible tour. it was the the perfect tour after arriving two hours prior to the tour. The sites we visited were well chosen to give a great view and cultural knowledge of Cusco. Our guide had a tremendous amount of knowledge and provided insightful cultural and historical context at all the sites we visited. A must tour to select for your first day.

    Very good tour! Kind of short, was probably expecting a little more churches, monasteries etc.. but the guide was very knowledgable.
