This was a great tour! Henry did a fantastic job - he shared tons of interesting information about everything we saw and also kept the various itineraries of the group in mind. One caveat I would provide is that this was the first tour we had done in the area, and I can imagine that some of the stops made might not interest people who have already had their fill of alpacas, the beautiful mountains, etc.

We experienced an exceptional excursion guided and animated by Ali. The program, the comments, the desire to make us live and see the best of Peru frankly amazed us. Ali also made the effort to translate into French when we didn't understand. He bent over backwards over the two days to ensure that we had the best possible experience. Several options were proposed but never imposed. We were a small group of 13 people and we were pampered. Until the return to Puno where we were dropped off in front of the door of our accommodation. In short, we highly recommend this excursion, especially with Ali as your guide!

He is a great professional and knows a lot. He is also a very pleasant and efficient person. Thank you very much, Carlos.
