60's group-birthday celebration at Machu Picchu We were a group of 7 friend celebrating our 60th's in Cusco. Tatiana, the appointed guide, approached us the day before the visit to brief us about the tour and to align expectations. Tatiana showed a deep knowledge, big patience and a great sense of humor in dealing with 7 big boys. She is the main responsible in makung our visit to Machu Picchu a wonderful and unforgettable experience.

Meaningful and fantastic experience The tour guide is bravo and patient, and yet knowledgeable. He will answer all the questions related to the local culture if you do that. And the schedule is not tired at all but overall it is satisfying. Great memory and meaningful experience at Peru.

Empresa y guías súper, súper, súper recomendables!!!! Fue una experiencia única!!!! En estos dos días hemos conocido muchísimos restos arqueológicos de la civilización Inca y sobre su historia. Los guías Sandro y Benjamin son dos genios!!!! Todo el tiempo estuvieron a nuestro lado, atentos a nuestros requerimientos y siempre dispuestos a dar un poco más. Nos fuimos con la sensación de haber aprendido muchísimo y de haber conocido a full el Cusco. Son 1000% recomendables!!!!
