    I really enjoyed the two day tour of the sacred valley and Machu Picchu. I had plenty of time to see all the important sites at a relaxed pace. My guide (Fabricio) was wonderful and informative and enthusiastic justifiably proud of the heritage of the Incan people here. The overnight hotel in Aguascalientes was better than I had actually anticipated - a very comfortable stay, I did not lack anything. The train ride was beautiful as well and the scenery as you drive is beautiful; the driver, Frannklin, did a great job and was always reliable. I really encourage people to book the tour.

    Fredi provided a fantastic experience for us in Peru. Everything will be taken care of for you on this trip, including your Cusco airport pick up and drop off. Kevin our driver and Gary our guide did a fantastic job driving us around. Gary provided insightful information about the sites and made the experience personal. He knew the best times for Machu Picchu to make the experience magical. This team made everything very easy. I highly recommend this tour!

    AMAZING ! A must do in peru

    A MUST DO IN PERU! First off they picked me up from the airport, which was so smooth. They took me to my hotel to drop my luggage and just get stuff for an over night in Aguas calientes. The tour guide was so informative and had the best knowledge of everything. He knew the best times to go to the ruins verse the shops so you could see the ruins of sacred valley with less people around. The train ride and hotel stay were great in aguas calienetes. We went up to Manchu picc hut first thing in the morning and it was great not so many people and we had the most perfect day. Tour guide knew all the little secrets about Machu Picchu that others didn’t know ;) 10/10 would recommend this to anyone

    Machu Pichu extraordinary tour

    We really enjoyed our tour of Cusco and Machu Pichu. I am glad we did the two day tour. It gave us an opportunity to rest and adjust to the change in elevation from Lima. It is very safe to travel right now. There are strict distancing regulations because of COVID. Machu Pichu is beautiful. We went in the morning and it was quite peaceful. Trip of a lifetime.

    Great Logistics - Easy way to see the area for the first time.

    This was a great way to see the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. As a solo traveler going to Peru for the first time, I wanted to make this as simple as possible, especially as I was unsure as to how the altitude would effect me. First off, the logistics were handled flawlessly. From being picked up at the airport, to morning tours, to drop off back at the hotel and then airport at the end of the trip, every guide and driver was where they were supposed to be, when they said they would be there. This company is located at Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu), and contracts out airport transfers and the Sacred Valley Tour, (as do a lot of others as well - as everyone on my first day tour was from a separate tour company) - but everything truly was seamless - if it wasn't for the different uniforms, and that the first tour company told us that, I would have not noticed. I enjoyed all aspects of the first day, even though you end up in some tourist shops, I enjoy the learning aspect of that, seeing how the crafts are made, and exploring markets. At no time did I fell overly pressured to buy anything. I also really enjoyed the lunch spot they brought us to. Some times on tours like this you can end up at a pretty crappy lunch spot. This was probably the best buffet tour lunch I have had. A slightly less expensive alternative was offered as well, which I appreciated. The second day was great. Its Machu Picchu. Not much I can add. The train ride in and out of Aguas Calientes was gorgeous, and they got me a window seat on the river side of the train. I would not have even known to ask for that, but if you are booking the train, see if they can make that happen. Might have just been a happy coincidence for me. As a bonus, the car ride back from Ollyentembo (SP) to Cusco, went over the high Andean plain and seeing those farming and lake communities at between 10,000 and 12,000 feet was amazing - lucky for the time of year, but do try and see it in the day light. The only downside, and this is probably a Peru thing, was the hotel in Aguas Calientes (Wyman SP?). It wasn't horrible, and I did get a good night's sleep. But it really is a step or two up from a nice hostel. My original room on the second floor was loud, I could hear everything being said in the Lobby. They were kind enough to move me to a room on the 5th floor, which was a little better once they finished cleaning the restaurant on the 6th floor. However the breakfast was better than acceptable in a beautiful room of the 6th floor. And the water pressure was excellent in the shower. If you are picky about hotel rooms, I would suggest seeing if you can upgrade the hotel - but the place is fine otherwise. And the staff is very friendly and helpful. Oh yea - make sure you are in decent shape before going - climbing the steps at altitude will tire you out. But the guides were good at measuring the pace and provided rest as we went.

    Great tour. Hotel was good. All tour guides were informative and friendly and made sure we knew what to expect. Would have liked a little more time exploring Ollantaytombo independently. Surprisingly delicious lunch. Would definitely recommend.
