My sisters and I (@lasgarciashans) are used to traveling, and I can say without a doubt, that we have never found a company that would be as personally involved as Kantu, being aware of the most basic of our needs and want. They organized not only the private excursion to Machu Picchu, but also coordinated that we had a photographer accompany us to Machu Pichu and throughout our stay in Cusco. Our photographer, Luis Fernando, turned out to be an extraordinary young man who after a few hours was already like family, concerned about taking the best shots and making us feel comfortable and cared for. Our contact at Kantu Tour, Rommel, a charming young man and very committed to service, took care of absolutely all our needs, from the pick up from and to the airport, the excursion to Machu Picchu with all the logistics, he got us the photographer and organized a private dinner for us in our Airbnb, bringing a chef to cook us an exquisite dinner with traditional Cusco cuisine (delicious), which they ended up sharing with us as our guests. We had problems with the airline that canceled our return flight, and Rommel took charge of contacting the airline (which he did not have to do since we did not buy the airline with him), making sure that everything was fine. Likewise, he coordinated the COVID test with a laboratory that came to our Airbnb, and in 20 minutes we already had the results. These young men took over our hearts, becoming true friends, a worthy representation of the innate hospitality of Peruvians. We really feel more than pleased and we highly recommend Kantu Tour for all excursions and activities that you wish to do in Cusco, with the security that you will be treated, not as a simple client but as friends. Kantu Tour, thank you for such brilliant and fine attention! Rommel, Luis Fernando, and Kelly thank you for being such incredible human beings. Five stars plus to you all!!!!

We did the private full day tour with Kantu tours and it was so well organized, we were amazed ourselves. The day starts with a pickup at your hotel in a very comfortable car that drops you off at Ollantaytambo train station, you then board the train and get to Aguas Calientes. Here you meet your guide who accompanies you to Machu pichu.
The name of our guide was Elvis, who was incredible and patient. It was a very cloudy and rainy day and when we got to the top, we could barely see any ruins from there and he offered to wait with us until it cleared. Our driver Gerard was also very sweet. Highly recommend this tour company.

The whole staff from Kantu tours were amazing. Rommel was so helpful, attentive & easily accessible for any questions or concerns that I had. I communicated with Rommel via WhatsApp. He arranged to drop off the train, bus, Machu Picchu entrance tickets at my hotel and went over step by step what to expect for the tour. Samuel (driver) checked in with the hotel front desk and was on time for the morning pick up and safely drove us for about 1.5 hours to the Train Station. He reassured us that he would meet us back at the same spot at a certain time after our Machu Picchu tour. Once we got off the train, we met Jimmy (tour guide) who was holding a sign with our names printed on it and joined us on the 30 minute bus ride. It made me feel safe that their staff were all dressed with “Kantu” tours printed on their shirt and the car they used to pick us up was also well marked with their company name. Jimmy was very kind, friendly, spoke great English, very informative and took some cool pictures!! Do not worry which bus to take. They ALL go to the same place. Jimmy explained the bus are marked for the time frame thats printed on your ticket. Tour around Machu Picchu takes about 1.5 - 2 hours. Jimmy rode the bus back with us and walked us to the restaurant where lunch was included with the tour. Jimmy explained how to walk (5 minute walk from restaurant) back to the train station. Train station is small and there are signs prompting the time that they are boarding. Train ride to Machu Picchu and back home serves complimentary drinks and snacks. Once we got off the train, Samuel met us at the same spot holding a sign with our names printed. The drive back was smooth and safe. We practically fell asleep on the drive back. We were safely dropped off at the hotel and Rommel texted me on WhatsApp to make sure we got home safely. I really recommend using Kantu tours. The price I paid was well worth it!! No stress and very convenient & organize. Just fyi, Machu Picchu will not let you use hiking poles/sticks unless you have physical disabilities. There are no bathrooms once you enter the grounds. There are clean bathrooms located just before you enter the grounds but charges 2 Soles. Bring sunblock!! It was cloudy when I was there but still got sunburned (neck & forehead). Restaurant was okay- I got the Beef Lomo Saltado. Thank you for everything, Kantu Peru Tours.

Its definitely worth it to pay for the tour. Someone picked us up from our hotel- on time- and drove us to the train station. Once we got off the train someone was there waiting for us with a sign and got us on the bus and right through ticketing to start the tour. Our guide, I believe his name was Alex, was very knowledgeable about Machu Picchu. The only thing that was lacking was we thought we'd get some better photographs from our guide. Sometimes we thought he was taking pictures then later we found it wasn't on our phone. Anyways, aside from not getting great pictures the tour was perfect (they aren't photographers so I can't hold it against them). The hike up was a bit rough but once you get to the top it's pretty easy going. Lunch was pretty good. Great service. The chips and guac was delicious but the chicken was just alright. Frozen drinks were fantastic after a long tour outside. We paid for the vistadome train. We enjoyed it but if you're trying to cut corners I'm sure the regular train also has great views as besides smaller windows in the ceiling they were about the same. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to someone else! Also, if you get motion sick I highly recommend you take some motion sick meds prior to the drive- its pretty curvy. Alex was a great guide so I would recommend him as well.

My friend and I decided to book a tour with Kantu for Machu Picchu—well worth the money! They planned everything for us so it ran smoothly. We were picked up at 5:30am (the driver was perfectly on time), driven to the train station approx two hours drive. Then we were on the train for approx two hours. Then in Aguas Calientes we met our tour guide who was waiting for us and we took a bus to Machu Picchu. It was a private tour (us two friends plus the guide) and he was great with both English and Spanish and communicated perfectly very interesting background and info about the site. He took gorgeous photos of the two of us and we had great conversation! After, we took a bus back to Aguas where we enjoyed a lovely included lunch (I ate the Alpaca -delish!). Then the train back, where we met our driver again who drove us back to our hostel in Cusco. An amazing day! 10/10 would recommend!

We had an amazing tour. Our driver and tour guide were on time for our 6:15am pick up and the whole day was effortless. The guide was knowledgeable and gave us a unique perspective on Machu Picchu. Everything was easy and well planned which made it easy for us to enjoy the day! Highly recommend.

Kantu Peru did everything well.
Their driver (Cusco-the train) Jerel was awesome, safe, kind, warm.
The guide they had for us (Jimmy) was an archeologist - perfect fpr Machu Picchu.
He spoke excellent English, was warm, helpful, loved our (many) questions.
The lunch was great.
We recommend Kantu Peru.
Machu Picchu can be very overwhelming - having this all done was comforting

Our guide was fantastic and ensured we learned as much as we could about the discoveries and current archeological work at Machu Picchu.

The included lunch in Aguas Calientes was wonderful and the train ride to and from was beautiful and comfortable.

We do recommend you take plenty of mosquito and bug repellent!

From the driver to our guide these people are first class. Driver was prompt and took us to the train station as rapidly as possible. We were met by another guide who sheparded us through the station and onto the train. Our guide in Machu Picu was extremely well informed about its history and that of the Inca people. Overall--a great experience that I would recommend to anyone.
