  • This tour was awesome!! We had a private car with a driver and our tour guide. We stopped at several archeological sites and hiked. We had a chance to take pictures and shop. Our tour guide took us to a wonderful lunch. We loved having the private tour.

  • The Sacred Valley tour was great. Our guide, Joel, was incredibly knowledgeable about all of the sites we visited and took the time to delve into the rich history of the Sacred Valley. We also had a relaxing lunch...and ended the day feeling like we not only learned a lot about the area but also had an enjoyable day with a person who has a passion about The Sacred Valleyff

  • We had a fantastic day on this trip, from start to finish. We ended up being the only people on the tour, so my husband and I had a private tour! I can imagine it would have been a great day even with a slightly larger group, but the personal element was nice. Our guide, Carlos, was excellent-- he was able to fill us in about everything we wanted to know about, from pre-Incan civilizations to modern agricultural techniques to contemporary politics. The food at lunch was fine, but the view from the restaurant was the real attraction there-- you could see the ruins of Pisaq while enjoying your lunch. We also stopped at a textile/weaving place, where the local women explained how they use natural dyes, etc, and how to tell the difference between alpaca and sheep wool. I really can't say enough good things about this tour. It ended up being one of the highlights of our whole trip.

  • We did this tour in October of 2016. Was a great tour and ended up being a private tour for the four of us. Our tour guide was great and we had really great conversations with him. It's a long day but you get to cover a lot of ground. Lunch was amazing!

  • Got to see many places. Tour guide was good.

  • We explored the Chinchera, Pisaq and Olliantetambo temple and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Our guide Coel was very knowledgeable, passionate, professional and explained everything in detail. He helped immerse ourselves in Inca history and it was a great way to see the sacred valley. We booked this the day before the tour, and yet the pick up, lunch, everything was conducted professional. Totally recommend this tour!

  • We had a great tour!! Hans was an excellent guide. He was very friendly and knowledgable. We visited all the sites where the history and important artefacts were explained very clearly. Thank you Hans for making our tour so memorable and for the dinner recommendation. We throughly enjoyed ourselves.

  • Amazed by the Inca history. Thanks to our tour guide Antonio, he's the best!!!
