Tour to the Rainbow Mountain, Vinicunca
, Apr 2019
The tour was amazing but not because its organization but only because the sights and the experience. The food was very bad and not worth what was paid. The guide did not pick-up us at the hotel as was contracted, also did not released us at the Main Square of Cusco as well. When it was questioned the guide answer impolitely. Anyway, the guide's knowledge and English is questionable.
