This tour was phenomenal! From the start, our tour guide Mihai was very detailed and informational about the sites we were visiting. He added so much enjoyment and appreciation for each of the spots we visited. He narrated the entire trip (and was hilarious) and told historical stories about Ollantaytambo, Pisac, and Chinchero. The buffet was also very good food and has many options for all diets. We loved this tour and wish we could take Mihai with us throughout all of Peru. A must do while visiting this area!

A dense but very rich program! The guide was inexhaustible and allowed us to understand the specificities of the Inka culture. I recommend this excursion! A dense but very rich program!

Good tour. The places to visit are impressive. The guide that accompanied us was good in the amount of information. At times, he hastened the journey unnecessarily. We visited the first two sites in depth. Afterwards, we dedicated time to a place where handicrafts were sold, which was not scheduled on the tour. We did not visit the town of Chinchero. The guide was not good. He preferred that we visit a textile shopping place because it was convenient for him. We saw the town from an elevation without accessing the place.
