    As a solo traveler this was the cheapest tour to see all of the Sacred Valley as other operators quoted me almost $60 more You really do see everything and it was a fantastic lunch. The company is great and arrived to pick me up in time and even worked with me to get me to the airport on time. Excellent communication. And the tour guide was wonderful, knowledgeable and so nice. . My only criticism is that the tour guide had to do interpretation for both Spanish and English guests. It mightve been easier if it was an English guide for English speakers and a Spanish guide for Spanish speakers. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that this was a great tour.

    Julie was our tour guide and did an excellent job showing our small group around. They pick you up from your hotel. I chose this tour because it was the most comprehensive and went to the most places in one day. We even had time to take in some shopping at the market in Pisac. I highly recommend. This trip exceeded my expectations. Loved every minute. I really enjoyed interacting with the people and getting to experience the cultural side of Peru.

    Molto bello e molto concentrato. Ideale per chi vuol vedere tutto in un giorno. Per chi ha più tempo meglio dedicare due giornate ai 5 siti.
