Our tour of the Sacred Valley with Serafino was great - he was super knowledgeable and made sure we kept up a good pace to see lots of things in one day. The tour bus was comfortable and we felt well looked after throughout the day. The lunch stop was a little basic and touristy, but this is to be expected. Just make sure you take snacks if you have any dietary requirements as these were not catered for! The tour stopped at a few local handicraft stores but we didn't feel overly pressured to buy anything and the presentations at these places were interesting to see. Thanks for a great tour!

I did this activity with Elvis and what an extraordinary guide, funny, extremely kind and full of explanations. We made more stops than expected (we fed alpacas in addition, attended the explanations to distinguish the materials in Alpaca, very useful for purchases) it was a full day, one of my favorites in Peru. My expectations were largely exceeded, I really took a real pleasure Thanks to Elvis for this day

This tour was phenomenal! From the start, our tour guide Mihai was very detailed and informational about the sites we were visiting. He added so much enjoyment and appreciation for each of the spots we visited. He narrated the entire trip (and was hilarious) and told historical stories about Ollantaytambo, Pisac, and Chinchero. The buffet was also very good food and has many options for all diets. We loved this tour and wish we could take Mihai with us throughout all of Peru. A must do while visiting this area!
