Fabulous day, was picked up early and had a very educational experience. The buffet lunch was very unique and allowed me to try many foods I’ve never seen before. All the food was super fresh. The transportation was very nice, the driver was an expert. Everything was made very clear, from the historical information to when to get back to the bus. Loved the textile factory.

The tour was good, I was little bit disappointed that we did not stop by Chinchero archeological site when we were so close. We had interesting lecture on producing and dying wool with welcome drink. Ladies were nice.

Very passionate tour guide and overall everything went very smoothly and everything was communicated to us very well

Julio has been a charming and very interesting guide. The excursion has been great.

The guide explained a lot. We had enough time to look at everything ourselves
