    Discover the best of Cusco's Sacred Valley on this full-day tour.

    The guide was exceptional. Everything was great but the last destination (Pisaq) was unnecesary: We drove there but we didn´t make it as the distance from Urubamba to Pisaq didn´t allow us to get there before the ruins closed. It would have been better to just stay at Urubamba and explore the city.

    Guide Algredo was awesome. He reinforces his eloquent speeches eith repeats that allowd u to retain all the information he dissipates. He showed us around on a busy day that covers Maras salt mines, Moray ruins, Chincherro ruins, a visit to a authentic Incan handicraft place, and the highlight being the Sacred calley at Ollantaytambo. Alfredo went above and beyond every single time you have questions and concerns. At the end of the tour, Alfredo helped us find the office of the next tour we had scheduled by walking with us around the Plaza de Armas at Cusco because of police blockade. Lunch at Taki wasi was an exotic buffet spread, it was sumptuous. Driver of the van was great, drove safely and never made any rough maneuvers. I highly recommend this tour with Alfredo and his driver Tinto.

I really enjoyed this tour. It was great to see all of the different Inca sites after having gone to Machu Picchu a few days before. Our guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job operating a bilingual tour. These sites have a lot of stairs (no seriously…a lot of stairs). Between the altitude and my strike against exercise, I definitely struggled. Our guide was super positive and took time to stop and explain things to the rest of the group while I panted in the corner. I very much enjoyed our activity and our wonderful guide!

Jose Luis was an amazing guide. He was very knowledgeable and very helpful. He was a pleasure to talk to about everything including politics in Peru. The pisco tasting was so much fun. And to get to make my own pisco sour drink made me appreciate the hard work of the bartenders.

The tour was excellent, the guide (Davies Yonathan) and the driver (Sabino) did an amazing job during the two days ( Sacred Valley and 7 Colors Mountain) that we traveled with them. I would highly recommend them as they are knowledgeable, engaging and caring!!!
