What people are saying about Cusco

An alternative way to get to Macchu Picchu that I particularly liked! However, consider that there are 7 hours by bus on the first day and another 7 on the second day for the Cusco-Hydroelectric transfer and vice versa, which are heavy motorbikes and on a road that in the first half is full of hairpin bends and in the second it becomes a steep dirt road. The walk from hydroelectric to aguas calientes is particular and characteristic, within everyone's reach as it is all flat and lasts 3 hours. The accommodation is a functional and basic hostel. The boys called us by name in the town square to find us. Macchu Picchu, on the other hand, does not need a description: it is simply pure spectacle and the guide made everything even more special with her genuine attachment and interest for the place, she was able to send us all the necessary information in 3 hours even if I would have stayed to listen to it all the day. The return, also uncomplicated, takes about 3.30-4 hours

An all round excellent adventurous fun trip!! Our tour guide Saul was fab with plenty on experience and knowledge throughout the 4 days! The hotels and food for fabulous & the organisation of everything including all the activities was great. Would definitely recommend booking the tour, we are so glad we went! Worth every penny :) The hike on day 2 is pretty long with lots of up hills so that may be something you want to bear in mind. Take comfortable shoes and breathe able clothes as it gets very hot. Pack light too!!

Very nice trip! We were the only ones to book the tour so we got a private tour!Our guide Efrain was very helpful and answered all our questions. The only thing I would change is on the way back a direct transfer to Cusco by train, because we had to change to bus at Ollantaytambo, which was a bit extra tiring and especially considering the price of the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Trip was amazing and Gustavo was an incredible guide. Can’t recommend this enough.

The service was excellent, helpful people, I recommend
