  • Barbaa from CO gives this tour 

    Everything went like clockwork. We never had the chance to feel uncertain or unsure of our next move. The coordination between our greeters (Fernando in Lima, Nellie in Cusco, and Krishna in Machu Picchu) was phenomenal. As a result of an unexpected nationwide strike, Nellie worked overtime to reschedule our accommodations and train travel from Machu Picchu to Cusco. Our tour guides (Ruth in Lima, Lizbeth in Cuzco and Sacred Valley, and Irving in Machu Picchu were very knowledgeable and moved at a pace that was perfect for us. Ruth made Lima come alive. We developed a fast friendship with her. Irving made Machu Picchu a blast as we worked our way through periods of rain and fog. What better way to see the mysterious world wonder. Needless to say, Machu Picchu was awe-inspiring.. Of special note, our driver, Jannie was a saint staying with me as I fought though an intestinal virus. Dinners at both Inkaterra Hotels in Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu were beyond heavenly.

    we loved everything! Our guides were so helpful with their knowledge of the places we visited, helping us with all of our flight details, baggage, etc. They took such good care of us we really didn't worry about anything! All the places we visited were amazing, but our guides' engagement with us throughout our entire trip made it even more enjoyable!
