    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.

    A little confusion to start, told us pickup was between 0730-0800. Showed up at 0815. Than drove around in the van for 20 mins. We than went to their tourist transport area and sat there for 20 mins with no explanation. We wasted almost an hour time before we started the tour. Once we started the tour, realized my wife and I were the only English speakers, every one else in the van (12 total) were Spanish speakers. The tour guide was very good and bilingual, explaining everything in both English and Spanish. The tour itself was excellent and really enjoyed the places we visited and the time we spent at each location. The buffet lunch itself was pretty good, but started too late and lasted too long. 1330-1445. Only needed 30 mins and was starving by the time we got there. Overall, I would recommend the tour and would do it again.
