One of the best experiences, especially because he takes you through every corner and you can have wonderful and unique views. During the whole tour he shares information of every corner and this is very nice because you are enjoying the trip. I highly recommend it. The quality/price ratio is 100%.

I really liked it, an intact Inca archaeological site and another site that predates the Incas. The Church is beautiful inside, it's a shame it's not possible to take photos, but I understand.

It was a peaceful ride. The guide served us very well and the tour was very pleasant and instructive. We just didn't like lunch very much, which wasn't included, but the rest was very good.

Absolutely amazing! Would recommend. What a great way of getting from Puno to Cusco. We had the best guide (Rolly), the best lunch and just the best day.

The trip was very successful and interesting The places that we visited very good The guide very good 👍
