    This tour felt rushed! It wasn't in the description that there would be a lot of walking up the stairs and back on a couple locations. The tour guide did a lot of talking that we couldn't even stop much for a photo op. He didn't give us time to take pictures. He'll do a history then on to the next stop. We also felt that non-Spanish speakers be put in a separate tour with English speakers only so that the guide doesn't have to take too much time in translating. He didn't even say anything to a fellow tourist who was rude and was talking loudly on the shuttle bus.

    El recorrido es hermoso y muy completo. Los pueblos visitados son bellos. El guía Junior excelente. El almuerzo mediocre, restaurant con muy poca variedad de alimentos. Además nos ESTAFARON. Una excursión que comprándola en Cusco nos pedían 100 soles, es decir 26 dólares, a nosotros nos cobraron 79 dólares.

    It's a great way to see a lot in one day - we were impressed by the archaeological sites, everything was included when it comes to entrances. Our guide was a bit rushed to best the crowds, but other than that the trip was great.

    Great tour for those with limited time. Was a full activity packed day covering the key sites in the valley. Guide was knowledgable and kept use busy and entertained. Recommended.

    It was very complete. A lot was packed in to this tour but there was sufficient time to appreciate the sites. Our tour guide Mike was knowledgeable and helpful. It was strenuous at times

    The guide was fantastic, she was able to give us a wonderful history to the Inca and coral civilizations that primarily developed great agricultural products. Namely the corn and the potato. We saw a variety of very important archaeological areas that help protect certain aspects of the Inca empire. I would highly recommend this tour.

    We had a great tour - very comprehensive-visited a lot of places. The tour was very responsive to our chat via Viator app. Our tour guide was Raul. He did an excellent job of taking us around, very knowledgeable, keeping the group together so we were all on schedule, pleasant, helped with the pics... And, some free samples along the ways....

    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.
