      We wanted a way to see the main sights of Cusco in one afternoon, with a little more history than if we were to just look at everything ourselves. This tour did all of that, plus organized the day so it was easy and efficient to see everything without having to order cars, follow maps, etc. Our guide was very kind and educated, and our driver was good and safe!

      Tour guide was very proficient with the history of the city. We visited churches, archeological sites, markets, and other interesting places with Inkan history. He has a vast knowledge to share. We really enjoyed his sharing the culture, traditions and history of the places we visited.

      Cusco is a pretty small city, and this tour was a great way to see everything in one go. Our tour guide was super friendly and knowledgeable, giving us information we never would have gotten if we toured the attractions on our own. We really loved the market and the church, and lucked into walking by the 12-angle stone while no one else was around. Definitely a good way to spend the afternoon.

      The overall tour was very good, the Cathedral was incredible, never seen anything like this one. Only thing it was hard to fully understand the guides English unless you were up close all the time.

      This was a good, quick primer for our first day in Cusco. We pretty much covered most of the highlights of the city that one could expect to in a half-day which is great because you don't want to take on too much without first getting acclimated to the altitude!. The price is reasonable, so I'd highly recommend doing this tour!

      Again, just fantastic. My favorite tour of my entire week in Peru and why I booked a second tour with your company for Lima. I should have asked about even more tours as I had some others I had pre-booked with other companies that were lacking. Angel knows his stuff and didn't pivot at my questions I am a huge history buff and had read about a lot of what we were seeing beforehand but had insightful answers for all. The Cathedral in Cusco was such an amazing place, made more so by knowing how to look for the indigenous influences used that knowledge as I visited many other Churches, etc. thereafter. Great start to the trip!!!

      My guide was excellent. Very informative about the history of Cusco and especially the cathedral where his expertise created a magical experience. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the city because on your own you will just be harassed by vendors and not really understand the history.
