The entire tour was amazing. Valentin was so thoughtful and caring, and really we all enjoyed him as a tour guide so much. He really took time to show us all around the city and planetarium, and could not imagine our trip without doing this. 10/10 for sure. If you are going to Cusco, this is a must book trip with Valentin.

Valentin first showed us around Cusco in the evening and shared with us details about Cusco’s history before taking us to the Planetarium, which was later followed by a delicious local dinner. It was an amazing evening. Valentin is extremely knowledgeable about Cusco’s history and shared with us details about his childhood and growing up in Cusco. We enjoyed his insight tremendously. The Planetarium was a unique experience that we highly recommend. It was also very romantic. Overall our experience was exceptional and we think any trip to Cusco would be incomplete without a tour with Valentin’s Pachamama tour experience.

We used Valentin for our tour of Cusco. We couldn’t have been more happier with everything we did. We learned so much about Cusco and the people of the region. His English is wonderful and you will remember forever the stories he tells. If you can book him for any of the tours he does I am sure you will be very happy.

Our evening was just as described on the promotion for this tour. It is a good excursion, whether you are new to town and need to take it easy on your first few days, or if you’ve already been here a short while, like us. My teenage daughter and I had a wonderful, casual and informative evening with our guide, Ernesto. He was very attentive and thoughtful. And he spoke English very well.

Thank you to Ernesto and the team from Valentin’s Pachamama Journeys for your attention to detail from beginning to end!

Valentin and Kenny were the most knowledgeable, passionate, interesting and personable tour guides. Traveled to Peru with my daughter and son in law along with his parents. Letting Valentin know that I had bum knees, he took the utmost care in helping me navigate everything involved with the tour. We enjoyed San Pedro market, the Plaza square with our Pisco sours, the planetarium, and the best chicken dinner with Valentin, son Kenny and his wife. He told us so many details and facts about the history of Cusco. Valentin is such a fascinating man in his tour guide life and his private life. An outstanding human being all around. Guess I will have to go back one day so I can see his farm in the Sacred Valley!

Hi Carrie : For us it was wonderful to meet them and do the city tour with planetarium, the time was very short but we are pleased to know that they returned to their country with the joy that this tour was a good experience, we will be very happy that they return to Peru to be able to take them to our farm and learn more about our culture. Thank you for your comment and recommendation. Valentin

10/10 tour with Deyvis! We learned so much about Cusco, Inca tradition and more in our walking tour around San Pedro market and other key sites. Deyvis was super knowledgeable and great fun! The planetarium was spectacular, too. Would definitely recommend - a great way to spend an afternoon and evening in Cusco.

We arrived in Cusco and were immediately met at our hotel for a charming walking tour of Cusco. We thought the market might be a tourist trap so may not have gone on our own, but it was so much better than that. Lots of locals eating, shopping, and selling their wares. It was crowded and crazy but definitely fun to have a guide point out some of the more interesting details. The pisco sour was also lovely, in a spot overlooking the main square. We happened to get a cloudy night for the planetarium, but the team that runs the planetarium (by the way, unlike any US planetarium) has so much energy and enthusiasm for their work that it was fun anyway. We were able to see some amazing star clusters in-spite-of-the-clouds with their excellent telescopes. Overall, great evening.

I booked this tour somewhat last minute, as after reviewing my mother & I's itinerary for our trip to Peru I felt that I needed to "mix it up" a bit and do something that incorporated more of the local scene (flavors, people & experiences). Given that Cusco is at such a high elevation I thought the Planetarium would be very interesting & I was also very interested in visiting the local market (San Pedro) and seeing what the real feria's or markets are like for the locals.
Valentin met us at our hotel with his nephew Milton right on time. Both well prepared, warm & polite from the very beginning. Both Valentin & Milton are very educated and knowledgeable in their field, having worked their way up from farms & very rural areas in the sacred valley, to hotels and restaurants, to finally earning degrees in tourism/history and achieving certifications in english to pursue their dreams. We were very impressed with their knowledge and just the sheer dedication they had to accomplish these goals of owning their own tour company and striving to provide such excellent experiences.
We started off walking from our hotel in the Plaza de Armas to the San Pedro Market. I was astonished by the size of this market and it truly s more of a "locals" market, with vendors selling exotic animals, foods, clothing, etc..things you would NEVER see in the Plaza de Armas or touristy areas. Everywhere we looked we were overwhelmed by what we saw & how interesting it was. We stopped in the various sections (cheeses, chocolate,breads, poultries, etc) and were given samples, given information about the products, where they came from, etc ..was amazing. We bought some beautiful pure liver jewelry there for 1/3 of the price of the shops in the Plaza area as well. We stopped for a delicious Pisco Sour on our way back to the Plaza & got to know Valentin and Milton a bit more, truly wonderful human beings.
We then walked to our bus to take us up to the Planetarium & joined some other groups. The Planetarium was on a farm way up in the hills and it was beautiful, serene and quite compared to the bustling city Cusco has become. We had a 30 minute show about the starts, the Incan astrological beliefs and about the various constellations in the hemispheres in the Planetariums dome. We the went outside and were given warm blankets to look at the moon & stars. Was really interesting and I enjoyed the change of scene from museums, etc that we had done for the rest of our trip. Was a nice change!
Lastly, we ended our memorable day with a delicious local dinner of Pollo a las Brasas. You could tell this was a locals favorite spot, as Peruvian families were there having dinner in large groups, all speaking spinach or the native language. Again- I appreciated that we weren't being taken to the touristy areas & really seeing what life is like for the native people of Cusco. The food was soooo good & we enjoyed everything. We found out during this time that aside from the MANY tours that Valentin does & traveling, that he is a champion for his people, donating everything from clothing/shoes to poorer areas, to creating tours which engage the children in meeting tourists in hopes that it will motivate & inspire them to "dream big" and pursue an education. he helps build schools and is very well respected among the communities in Cusco, the Sacred Valley, etc...We enjoyed every minute of the tour from a tourist perspective, as it was fun, engaging, food was delicious and it was well organized. From a human perspective Valentin, was inspiring, kind, respectful, knowledgeable, driven and a human being we will both remember for the rest of our lives. I would highly recommend ANY tour with him and wish him all the best in his career and in life. Know that you are in great hands if you book a tour with him & I can guarantee that just like us, you will enjoy every minute of it. Best tour we had and thank you both! Muchas Gracias!

Not only is Valentin an amazing person, thoughtful and perceptive, he is an amazing tour guide. Talking with Valentin was like talking to an old friend. We spent time in the San Pedro Market, which is the main market downtown. We got a real sense of Cusco everyday life for a vendor and customers. The evening was perfect and the planetarium, and star gazing was a fun treat, very well done, and Valentin supplied blankets for the cool night air! Thank you Valentin for a wonderful evening in Cusco!
