Great day trip! Richard was very knowledgeable and answered every question. Felt like a steal of a deal and my husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. I’d recommend starting off your time in Cusco with this tour. You will need money for the tourist ticket and if you’d like to do the optional tour at the end.

The city tour was great. My guide was very knowledgeable. The only down side is it felt a little rushed I think adding 1 hour more would make up for the rush at the first stop.

Loved all of it. Great value and well organized. We did not know to buy tickets for the sites in advance but it was not problem to buy them at the sites.

totally recommend it, tour guide is awesome and the places to visit are so cool

Great way to learn about Cusco and the Incan culture.
