    Guide Algredo was awesome. He reinforces his eloquent speeches eith repeats that allowd u to retain all the information he dissipates. He showed us around on a busy day that covers Maras salt mines, Moray ruins, Chincherro ruins, a visit to a authentic Incan handicraft place, and the highlight being the Sacred calley at Ollantaytambo. Alfredo went above and beyond every single time you have questions and concerns. At the end of the tour, Alfredo helped us find the office of the next tour we had scheduled by walking with us around the Plaza de Armas at Cusco because of police blockade. Lunch at Taki wasi was an exotic buffet spread, it was sumptuous. Driver of the van was great, drove safely and never made any rough maneuvers. I highly recommend this tour with Alfredo and his driver Tinto.
