This half-day tour is pretty much the standard Cusco starting tour and tons of people do it. Our tour guide was good but we really felt like we were cramming in too much stuff. All the sites were crowded and we didn't get much time at any of them, except for the cathedral where our guide spent an hour boring our teenagers (and us) to death. Here's what I recommend: Do the cathedral and Quoricancha on your own as they're close to each other and near the Plaza de Armas, which has lots of other cool things to do. Grab a taxi out to Sacsayhuaman on your own - it's really cool and worth more than the 30 minutes we had there. The only other site that's worth a bit of your time is Q'enko, which can also be done on your own with a taxi (it's near Sacsayhuaman).

I walked into the office in the morning time as we did not schedule anything ahead of time. We were presented with all of the information about the price of the tour and the extra cost for entry tickets. Although, some of the other tour participants clearly were not aware of the extra cost. We had a great walking tour visiting a couple of churches in the square and seeing architecture around Cusco on foot and then we saw some archaeological sites by bus. I think others in our tour group were not expecting such a fast moving tour, and it made it a little bit chaotic, but it was fine for us. The information presented was very enlightening about the history of the city and sites, and thought it greatly enhanced our visit. Some of the other tour participants were being rather difficult and trying to change the tour, and I thought our tour guide handled it well. I would not necessarily recommend this for families or older folks, as the pace was very fast due to the time constraints.

This tour group only had 15 reviews when we booked, but we took a chance, and it ended up paying off. Our guide (Marco?) was excellent. Kept things moving at a good pace. The tour price doesn’t include entrance fees, so be prepared to buck up another 120 soles to get into the sites. If I had to make a suggestion, I would tell the tour company to charge a little more and make the tour just a bit longer (maybe start an hour earlier) so we could spend a little more time at each site. An extra 10 minutes at each place would have been better, but all in all, very satisfied with what we got for our money.

This tour is great for people who are pressed on time, but if you have more than 1-2 days in Cusco I highly suggest you book your tour elsewhere. Each stop we only had around 20 minutes to explore with the guide threatening that if you’re not back at the bus within 20 minutes they will leave you behind. I’m all about being on time, especially when traveling in a foreign country, so I rushed through Sacsahuaman and showed up to the designated spot 5 minutes early only to find our bus nowhere to be seen. The guide didn’t explain all the directions well and made everyone so stressed out by saying how quickly we had to rush through every place or else we’d be left behind. Me and two other people got left behind at Sacsahuaman, even though we showed up on time to the spot to be picked up, but were not aware that the bus was on the opposite side of the ruins, not at the entrance. We had to take a taxi then a city bus to catch up with our tour. When we caught up we found out that over half the tour of 15 people were just as confused of where to go and luckily ran into the tour guide for further direction while exploring, unfortunately on our way back on the first ruins we didn’t run into her. Many people said they almost did the same thing as us if they didn’t run into her. I’m only giving it an additional star because our guide did appear worried and was happy we made it back to them and I heard she did look for us for awhile. However, this was the worst and most stressful tour I have ever taken while traveling abroad

The half-day Cusco tour with local Inca ruins was very nice, light and presented by an informative guide Marco Antonio, who provided a telling insight into the Inca and pre-Inca history. Would recommend.

Again AMAZING. The knowledge an the skills of the Inka people is just mind blowing. Did just the archeological sites and a textile producer that taught us the different quality grades of lama products and how to spot fakes.

This tour needs to be split from city items (like the cathedral) and the ancient sites. We got no time to explore any of the sites and it was such a waste of money! I would NOT recommend this tour.

The guide Freddy was extremely knowledgeable on just about everything. The tour is only $20.00 and I suppose that covers the guide and the van for transportation. There are entry fees for these sites, but you would pay them if you went on your own, so DO NOT let those keep you from the tour.

It imparted an amazing amount of knowledge for us about the Inca and would recommend it to anyone.

The tour covers two parts: Inca ruins outside of the city and a couple of Catholic cathedrals in the central Cusco. The guide was fantastic and he was very engaging and demonstrated deep knowledge of the history and connections of Inca culture with Catholic Spain.
The tour was very well paced and very informative !
