Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu tour operators

Has anyone used Perutourism.com. My husband and I want to arrange a tour of Cusco and nearby ruins and another of Ollantaytambo and Sacred Valley. Any tour operator suggestions are appreciated.

You can easily join these tours once you are in Cusco. Theres loads of tour companies around the Plaza De Armas in Cusco.

However if you want to have a decent guide and the transportation I desperately recommended you to book in advance, I recommended to do sacred valley & Machu Picchu together in two days visiting pisaq market pisaq ruins , ollantaytambo ruins, then take train to aguas calientes and stay overnight there and the next day visit to the most magical machupichu. we can even suggest you to take private tour as if you book in the main square they will put you in a big bus with 30 people. We would like all our visitor have memorable experience and amazing Peru holidays as this is trip is once in the life time.

If you are planning to use a travel agency even for a short tour I think it is wise to find references and choose the one that is more appropriate to suit your preferences as well as your budget. Avoid street tour vendors.

I agree with the post from Alpaca Expeditions - avoid the day trips sold by agencies in and around Plaza de Armas. We booked a full day tour of the Sacred Valley with one of the many agencies. Price was reasonable 55 soles per person, but the tour was not as promised. First off, we were consolidated with a group of spanish speaking tourists on a bus provided by Puma Tours. They were 30 minutes late picking us up and then proceeded to drive thru town to pick up more passengers. One hour later we were back in front of our hotel, and not sure quite why. We decided to get off and find another way to tour the valley. We are still trying to get a refund! The guide whose English was minimal said that is the way it is on group tours and we were the ones causing problems, however three other groups left from our hotel beginning at 8, so I think these guys were just screwing around. We found a taxi that took us for the whole day, wherever we wanted to go in the Sacred Valley for 150 soles. We had a great day and at our pace, not that of a group tour. And I would avoid Puma tours at all costs!

I have not heard of them. I used Andean Adventures Peru and they were FANTASTIC. They offered reasonable prices and the guide we had, Ernesto, was one of the best guides I've ever had anywhere. His knowledge of Incan culture was outstanding.
