Very nice trip! We were the only ones to book the tour so we got a private tour!Our guide Efrain was very helpful and answered all our questions. The only thing I would change is on the way back a direct transfer to Cusco by train, because we had to change to bus at Ollantaytambo, which was a bit extra tiring and especially considering the price of the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour!

The guide Vidal is awesome knows all the sites and all the information and was very useful. He was also very accommodating and planned the trip differently for my partner who had some altitude sickened He spoke really good English which is easy to travel together and understand what he was explaining. The trip was great and all the sites the the chincero ruins, salt mines, the moray Incan circles and also ollantaytambo ruins was awesome. Also the trip to Macchu pichu was the highlight The only downside is the hotel is aguas caliente. It was really not up to scratch and we didn’t have hot water when we arrive that night. Also there is no air condition and it was a warm night and humid. We had to turn off the lights to open the window cos there were lots of insects. Not sure it is what we envision a 3* hotel to be. The breakfast was very good though. Nice views of the river and great service The panaromic train was an experience
