    The tour started in time as promised but what followed was only commercial. They stopped at a village called Chinchero which was not part of the tour where the women demostrated how they make the fabric out of lama wool. This place also had shops where they sell all sorts of clothes. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM HERE. IT IS 3 to 4 TIMES expensive than what you can get in Cusco. For ex, I bought a scarf for 35 soles here which was only 8 soles in San Pedro market, Cusco. I guess the tour company has some sort of commission with these people as the tour guide and drive were offered with free meals. We spent more than an hour at this village which was not part of the tour. Then at the rest of the places which were actually part of tour, the guide just rushed in everything and didn't give us enough time to explore and take some pictures.

    I booked this tour with my husband when we visited Peru for our honeymoon in March! It was great- we ended up being the only two in the tour so we were both picked up and dropped off at our hotel- very convenient! Our tour guide spoke English and Spanish very well and was very knowledgeable. We were very happy with our trip. The cost does not include entry fees into either site- together they cost 70 sol a person (about $20)-but we still felt the knowledge and travel was worth the cost of this tour.

    The tour was well organised, and we had a very nice, friendly and knowladgeble guide.
    The salt flats are amazing and definitely worth visiting.

    Punctual, friendly, and helpful staff. Tour is private, and takes you to the Maras Terraces and Moray Salt Flats. We also stopped at a coop in Chicheron to see traditional wool dying processes. Price is a little steep considering the local market economy, but it was worth having an English speaking guide all to ourselves.

    The sites are worth seeing, this tour however isn't as advertised. We were in a 20 person group on a bus. Half the group were Spanish speakers, the other English speaking. The guide would have to explain everything in both languages, wasting time and drawing out the tour. The textile shop we stopped at in Chincheros was dirty and not worth the stop, there are better ones in town to visit. The tour guide was lackluster and didn't go out of his way to be personable and you don't really have much time at any of the stops. Finally, it says hotel pick up and drop off - that was a joke. We were greeted in our hotel lobby and then walked 6 blocks to a street where the bus just stopped and forced us to hustle in quickly and at the end they just left us in San Francisco Square in Cusco and pointed that our hotel was that direction... Good thing we had our map with us!
