Fantastic Tour by Liset!

Liset's knowledge and enthusiasm made our trip to Machu Picchu and extra special experience. It was my daughter's 30th birthday and we were in this magnificent place, but the history and detail she provided made it so much more meaningful. There wasn't anything we asked that she didn't know. She provided us with tons of information presented in a manner that what terribly interesting. It is evident that even after doing many, many tours she absolutely loves what she does. She took lots of pictures and provided us with a great restaurant recommendation. The trip wouldn't have been the same without her.

Luz was a wonderful and sweet guide, we had a great time exploring Machu Picchu together. Very friendly and knowledgeable, Luz paused often to ask if we wanted photo opps or if we had any questions for her. Luz met us at our hotel the night before to go over our itinerary and was waiting for us bright and early to head up the next morning. All bus and entrance tickets were taken care of - would highly recommend this service!

The guide was very patient and informative. We arrived at 6am and couldn’t see anything because of the fog. She waited with us for two hours so that we could see Machu Picchu and take the pictures we wanted. The tour ended up taking 5 hours instead of two, and she still did not rush us at all.

Excellent tour! Our guide Marco was prompt and personable. He was so knowledgeable about the history, archaeology and culture of Machu Picchu and was easy to understand (we're English speaking Americans), never boring. And a great photographer as well. We feel we got so much more out of the tour by it being private and could explore at our own pace. Thanks so much Marco.

We had a terrific tour with Johnny as our guide. He was very pleasant and informative and was able to perceive and adapt to our group's need for a slower pace and frequent pauses. It was perfect.
