    Our guided trip exceeded our expectations in every way! We are a family of four and this was a private tour with the four of us, our own van and driver and our exceptional guide Miha Irivis with Willka Travel. We were met at our hotel by Miha and picked up together by our driver. Miha had an incredible depth of knowledge of the area, the history, culture, geology as well as the flora and fauna...very impressive and informative! Miha was able to assess our level of interest and personalize the tour to fit us perfectly! The sites we visited were great and Miha guided us through each site providing information and perspective that we could never have gotten on our own. Well worth it in every way and the easiest recommendation I have ever given! Thank you Miha....until we meet again. Craig

    I really liked it, but I missed some things

    The tour is worth it. We visited the main cathedral, then went to a koseiro which still has Incan walls inside and then we visited 4 archaeological sites around cusco. They are all small and fast to walk, but some stayed about 15 min. I missed going through the 12-angle stone, right near the cathedral. I found out about her only later and being a city tour, I think we should have gone there anyway. I also believe that even if it was by van, we should have passed a few points in the center and indicated some places, such as the San Pedro market, which is very worth knowing, but if I had not gone there by chance, I would not have known that it exists for some reason. that the city tour said nothing.

    Great tour of Incan ruins

    Although it was not a city tour of Cuzco, we did visit Qoricancha (church of Saint Domingue) in town. Then we visited the 4 Incan archeological sites around Cuzco: Saqsayhuaman, Q'engo, Puku Pukara, and Tambomachay. Our guide, Nelida, was excellent!!!! We had a wonderful time, plenty of opportunities for photos (and bathroom breaks) and also a short workshop on of to differentiate good Alpaca wool from imitation/synthetic one. I strongly recommend this tour. It's very much worth it!
