    Overall, my husband and myself had a fantastic experience. We were lucky to be the only ones at our group, so we had a guide just for us! This made it very personalised, specially made easier the hike, as we could take the photos we wanted and stop when needed, although for my husband, he would say that the guide was walking too fast. All the activities (cycling, rafting and the zip line) were very well organised, felt very safe and we really enjoyed them. Watch out for the mosquitos! We were eaten despite the repellent. The thermal baths are not included but definitely recommended. The places we stayed overnight were very comfy, clean, had hot showers and the food was also good. If you are a big eater, there are also opportunities to buy snacks and water. Our guide Jaime was brilliant, giving us tips, information, always looking after us, making sure that we were fine and that everything was running smoothly. It is a great four day journey to Machu Picchu!

This was a really fun activity and a good way to see the surrounding areas of Cusco. The salt mines are quite interesting and Moray was nice. You will get a bit dirty on the bikes so wear appropriate clothes, and I highly suggest bringing a bandana or something to cover your nose and mouth from all the dust.

A cool way to both explore the Inca sites and enjoy the nature in an adventurous way, highly recommend it. It wasn’t tiring a lot as it was for half a day.

This trip was amazing! The guide was very knowledgeable about the places we visited and what we were doing. Definitely would do it again!

It was well organized and the guides explained throughly the operation of the quads. Safety first. Beautiful scenery.

I had a really good time the guide was really nice and told us a lot about the history of the places !
