I wanted a visit to Peru that would challenge my fitness levels and Lyle and Lily delivered a first class experience, right down to selling me souvenirs of their own to ensure that I returned with presents for all my friends and family.

Lyle and Lily are so sweet and accomodating. I was traveling in a group of 8 (mostly family). My family is not always easy to get along with, and Lyle and Lily took it all in stride and managed to maintain the perfect balance between being personable and also professional. Great place for families with kids, people traveling on their... More

Thanks rabidbadger8, we really enjoyed having you and your family here with us and we actually found you all easy to get along with, having one group that is all doing the same thing (mostly) is logistically much easier than 5 groups going in 5 different directions.

I discovered Lyle and Lily on TripAdvisor, when Lyle offered up some free information about tour packages for Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. After lots of discussion and communication, the Walkers provided amazing, over-the-top service to me and my traveling party of 8 mostly non-spanish-speaking gringo/as. Spanning the course of about 6 months, Lyle and Lily helped us to... More

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time staying at GringoWasi. Lyle and Lily were more than accommodating and helped us get the most of our last few days in the beautiful country of Peru. Delicious home cooked food, and very comfortable beds. I highly recommend! It's a nice peaceful alternative to the hustle and bustle of Cusco, and if... More

A huge "Thank You" to Lyle and Lily for hosting our stay at the Gringowasi! We used Gringowasi as our home base and ventured from there into the Manu jungle, toured the Sacred Valley and then journeyed to Aguas Calientes to spend the night before our day in Machu Picchu. All in all we were in Peru about 8 days... More

I went to Machu Picchu in Cuzco and I stayed in Gringo Wasi. Nobody was in the hotel, just my daughter and me! The owners were extremely nice but the people who work there cannot be trusted.

We really enjoyed our 2 nights at GringoWasi. Lyle and Lily are very hospitable and the setting can't be beat. Staying in a small town outside of Cusco is a unique experience. It's peaceful and quiet, and a great way to start of a trip to the area. Our room was comfortable and breakfasts are great. We had both dinners... More
