    Marcahuasi was the highlight of my travels in Peru!
    Aurora_T
    , May 2022
    I booked this tour months in advanced, when I didn’t really know anything about this place. When I saw photos online I immediately felt drawn to it and booked as a day Trip from Lima. Carlos picked us up from our hostel at 5:30 am to avoid the Lima traffic and the drive was beautiful! (If you are afraid of heights, I would avoid this experience just due to the twisty and long road you must drive to get there) When we arrived to Marcahuasi it was very peaceful and very few people were around. Carlos Guided us through the Stone Forest, explaining and letting us experience the true Magic Of Marcahuasi for ourselves. I have traveled all over the world and have never seen a place like Marcahuasi. Everything was so beautiful and I felt very tranquil throughout the hiking experience. I hope one day I can return back to Marcahuasi, this place is truly a hidden gem and I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to experience its magic.

    One of the best days of my life

    I'm traveling around Peru and up through Central America on my way to Hawaii. Saw 1 picture and booked this trip. This experience was just incredible and unexpected. Carlos and his little dog are a delight. He is an excellent death defying driver. There will be ups and downs highs and lows. I don't want to give too much away but the vistas are stunning, the company is great and you will really feel the mountains in your bones. Highly recommend. I will be back.

    This was one of the best trapped I ever.booked, worth every penny & totally worth getting up so early for. Carlos is a very energetic, worth a lot of knowledge about the area. He know this place by heart & is a very skilled driver. I felt entirely safe the while trip, while the roads are very challenging. Thank.you so much for this experience!!!

    What an amazing and unforgettable adventure!! Carlos is so personable, easygoing and a LOT of fun! The mountain itself was magical, breathtaking and well worth the drive with incredible views along the way. I wouldn’t have spent my last day in Lima doing anything else or with anyone else!

    For those who enjoy the "not a typical touristy" activity...

    Our driver/guide Carlos was entertaining (ask about Yma Sumac!) and a safe driver (necessary on the winding, single lane (at best!) gravel road up to Marcahuasi.). This is definitely for those who want a "not the typical touristy" experience. Marcahuasi is peaceful and tranquil. Local Peruvians I met could not believe I had visited their "secret" spot! Definitely recommended.

    This was a very unique trip outside of Lima. The ride up was beautiful and and the stone forest was mesmerizing. Carlos was a fantastic guide who knows the mountain so well. I felt very safe with his expert guidance. A beautiful and adventurous trip!

    Awesome Day Trip to the Andes
    JosephFischerOrtiz
    , Feb 2022
    What a great time! We reserved the day before and Carlos was very commutative from the start about what we need to bring and when we would be picked up. The crazy drive though the mountains in the 4x4 is almost as good as the hike among the massive stone structures. Great views, fun experiences, and entertaining company. Thank you Carlos for a great time Vale and I won't forget!

    Amazing Day Trip to the Andes

    , Jan 2022
    10/10 would recommend this tour to everyone who has a day to kill time in Lima. Carlos personally picked me and my girlfriend up from our airbnb and we drove the 3 hour car ride to the top of the Andes. The drive was possibly the most beautiful drive I have ever done. Carlos is an amazing driver, which was helpful since the roads up to the top of the mountain were so narrow. You will never see anything else like this while in peru!

    The tour guide didn’t show up and even after me texting him on WhatsApp he still didn’t respond. Not sure why he didn’t come. He definitely received the message. No tour so I waisted one day of my trip. And no even an explanation. Very disappointed because the tour wasn’t cheap.

    Is imposible to pick up a person if you dont give the address, we write the Day before and you never give nothing. You write at 5:53 am when the Experience start at 5:30 am. There are anothers persons that are in the Experience and they a give all the information in time. Is imposible to program a Pick up went you give the address after the time of start the Experience. Please be honest and say the truth. As you know all the messages are here.

    Best tour !

    , Dec 2021
    Awesome trip, tour guide took us from hotel, we hop in to the huge SUV and drove directly to the mountains. It was about 3 hours ride, but about 1:15h of that time was serpantines, scary but also the most beautiful road I ever seen, guide was a perfect driver and knew that road very well. When we reach the mountains, we hiked about an hour or less to reach the peak of the mountain. The view was incredible, its very difficult to describe it, you need to see it. At the time we were all alone in all the place, it was so peacefull and so quite, you can litterally hear your heart beating. Guide was very friendly and communicative , has a lot of stories of the place. To sum up, all experience was awesome. 5 starts out of 5 ! Hardly recomending this for everyone.

    Excellent tour with an excellent guide Carlos
    Warren_W
    , May 2019
    First, I misread a previous comment saying the elev was 4000 ft, when it is actually 4000m, over 12,000 ft! So, beware of altitude sickness. This review is mostly from my daughters perspective as this 74 year old learned his limitations. I couldn't make it, and turned back. My daughter went on with Carlos and hiked around 7 miles of very scenic landscape. Carlos was an excellent guide and driver up those dirt windy mountain roads.

    Giornata a dir poco stupenda, solo il viaggio merita il prezzo del biglietto. Marchauasi è un pezzo di paradiso a qualche ora da Lima, un viaggio mistico. Come dice Carlos, guida veramente simpatica e disponibile, non è un tour ma una esperienza! Super consigliata!
