Amazing sites!
Lucie_d

We had a wonderful guide who wrote a book about Cusco and its history. We ended up buying it. You get to see a lot of places during the tour and learn so much about them! Unfortunately, my husband and I were sick and had to leave the tour early. Luckily, the bus was able to drop us off at our hotel before Qorikancha (which we sadly didn’t get to see). Even though we didn’t get to finish the tour, we highly recommend it!

TOUR GUIDE NILDO WAS GREAT
Lashay_T
, Apr 2022
The guide, Nildo, was knowledgeable and spoke English well. He was great! There were at least 6 stops on this tour (more than I expected) so it was a lot to pack in for a half day. I loved that my group was small as well (4 total). I recommend purchasing the full tour pass that covers all the historical sites if you will visit others after this tour.

Not a City Tour - It’s a ruins tour
Kiersten_A
, Apr 2022
Thought this was a combo Cusco City and Ruins Tour but it was only a ruins tour - never toured the city of Cusco. Also you must have cash in hand to pay for the entry fees - a total of 95 sols per person - no credit. This was also a bilingual tour - mostly in Spanish. Tour Guide tried to explain things in English but he was difficult to understand. Felt like we did not get what was advertised on Viator. The company in charge of tour was also difficult to get in touch with in regards to pick up times etc.

Kiersten, Thank you so much for your time, the description of the tour it’s very clear, we visit 2 places in the City and the rest are archeological sites If you are used to not reading before buying a product, I suggest you read carefully what you are buying so that you will not have any problem in the future, we send you messages to reach you as well Thank you Rolando

Thanks for the great tour. The organising was excellent, the guide, Walter, very good! He provided enough information in a reasonable time frame. Picked up on time, no need for special effort to coordinate anything from my side

Big Dissapointment

I've been pretty satisfied with nearly all of my Viator experiences but this tour was a glaring exception. It was poorly organized and poorly executed. I'll be requesting a refund.

Didn't get picked up on time, about 45 minutes from arranged time and after multiple phone calls to find out that the tour had already started. joined the tour late. The transfer man lied about the starting time of the tour. Then I discovered that they had 4 names on their list and they didn't notice or care that I was missing. However the our was good and the tour guide was knowledgeable and helpful.

Great Tour
Laura W

This was a great tour of the ruins around Cusco and the big Cathedral in the square. Our guide, Wilfredo, was very enthusiastic and informative. He was passionate when he explained the history behind the sites we saw. We met him and the rest our group (about 15 people) outside the Cathedral in the main square. Wilfredo led us around inside the Cathedral and explained so much of the history there. Then we went to Saqsaywaman where we had time to take pictures and walk around the site after Wilfredo taught us about it. Then we went to Qenqo, Tambomachay, and Puka Pukara. These three sites were smaller so we spent less time there, but I think it was all the time that we needed to see them, learn about them, and take pictures. At Qenqo we walked through a cave where the Inkas performed sacrifices which was really cool. Also, all of the sites except the Cathedral were included on the tourist ticket. So if you bought that already, you didn't have to pay to get into the sites. Just show your ticket. Overall, great day. Thank you Wilfredo!

The tourist tickets required in Cusco are a bit confusing. I purchased the 10 day ticket expecting that it would cover everything but it didn't and I still had to buy entry into some of the sites visited. The tour did not start on time as the guide was half an hour late and we waited for some other people. The tour apart from that was excellent and tiring and the guide was excellent.

Really good tour! The guide was great at moving people along promptly so make sure we reached all locations before dark. It was a little hard to find our meeting point because the guide was a bit late, but that's my only real issue with this. We were concerned we were in the wrong place or had missed the tour.

I didn't give this tour 5 stars because we were sold to another agency. We were not contacted the night before about pick-up or anything and we had to call Viator to call the local tour operator. The tour guide we had was very excellent and he has a lot of knowledge to share. I just wish we were told earlier than we would be going with a different agency and we were contacted the night before about the pick-up time.

Hotel pick up at 1 pm was prompt dropped at city center but had to wait more than 20 min. in the heat before the tour started. Unorganized.if there was Viator flag or representative who speaks English would have eliminated confusion. Person who picked us didn't speak any English.. Finally some body called our name and tour started. Tour itself was good. Marco was informative and fun. Wish web site clearly shows the entrance fees. Spent over 30 for entrance fee.

This tour and our guide Jesus was great. We visited many sites. There was a lot of walking. Jesus was very informative and visibly enjoyed his job and interacting with the group.It is a lot in a half day but well worth the $$$. We used the 10 day tourist ticket for this trip and the sacred valley

Lynda_B

I think it would have been much better than I am going to write here. Reason being, I got altitude sickness half way through the tour and ended up fainting. The tour guide and multiple other people including the driver of the bus took good care of me but I was stuck on the bus for the remainder of the tour until dropped off at hotel hours later. Not their fault just the circumstances. I did however enjoy the tourprior to getting sick. Tour guide knowledgeable. It felt somewhat rushed at the beginning and abit confusing trying to find the start up point. I would recommend the tour but make sure you are acclimitized to altitude before starting any tours.

Good organization and great guide. Fantastic views. Although affordable, some clarity beforehand on price of entrance fee to the park would have helped, and to ensure I brought along Soles to pay since foreign currency not acceptable.
