          Wonderful experience!
          We had an amazing trip, Santu had everything under control and they made sure we had an unforgettable experience even under challenging conditions. Dany and his crew made us feel comfortable and safe at all times and they even had time to prepare a cake to celebrate my birthday, I won’t forget that detail.

          Amazing!!!! Highly recommended!!!Worth the money!!!!
          Amazing experience with them over all!! Highly recommend! As for my first trip to South America and traveling alone, I decided to get a tour operator, and after much research, and checking who are actually registered tour operators, I decided to go with Santu Cusco, and I couldn’t be more glad I made the choice. They listen to your wishes, your intents, and I really appreciated that from the beginning. They take care of you and made me feel safe-as a female solo traveller, this is much appreciated. They really your stay comfortable. They placed me in 2,5,10 min walks to the main squares of all the places, and this is really great because you end up having a bit of time to roam around a great city center for yourself, or just for dining out when you’re too tired. They arranged my whole trip for 32 Days around Peru (Chachapoyas, Trujillo, Chiclayo, Lima, Arequipa, Colca Canyon, Nazca, Puno, Lake Titicaca, Cusco) and Bolivia (La Paz and Uyuni) and really had a blast. And also, having discussions with the people I’ve met during the trip (all of them had much to complain about their tour operators), I realised how lucky I am with Santu Cusco, that my itinerary and everything else in between was well organised. Also, I believe that I have to highlight this, I have spoken with people while at Macchu Picchu, and even the guys working in Machu Picchu itself, and when they heard that I basically spent only a month planning before the actual trip, ALL were amazed as to how Santu Cusco managed to get me tickets to Machu Picchu, Huayna Picchu and Montaña Machu Picchu in such a short period. I have read from blogs that the tickets can get sold out, but getting such feedback from the people working there itself, says how Santu Cusco can work wonders. So for all those who are short on time, don’t doubt, go with Santu Cusco. And I appreciated them even more because at the end of my trip, the political crisis started, and I couldn’t be more glad with the last minute arrangements they had to make. Giuliana was a huge help and provided assistance all through out, from planning, to the entire trip. Also shout out to Yen! Thank you so much, Santu Cusco!!! This is quite a late review, but I really had the time of my life!!!!

          Excellent Tour Operator that will create a custom itinerary that fit your needs!
          Santu Tour operator created a custom tour that perfectly fit our needs and wishes for the days we had in Valle Sagrado. They helped us with timely and safe transportation, knowledgable bilingual guides and park tickets. They were accommodating, easily available and provided information every step of the way. I would highly recommend them if you’re thinking of traveling to Cusco, Valle Sagrado & Machu Picchu. It was a memorable, eye-opening experience!

          Awesome tour organizer
          Santu Cuzco helped us organize a trip to Puerto Maldonado in the Peruvian Amazon as well as a day trip to Macchu Pichu. Their local knowledge is incredible and their advice was indispensable. We wouldn’t have enjoyed our trip as much without them!

          Exploring Lake Piuray
          Great times exploring the lake in a polynesian canoe with the family, watching birds and enjoying beautiful weather and sights. Also practiced stand-up paddle with my daughter. Amazing experience overall.

          Unforgettable!
          Inca trail in 4 days: we organize the trip from our country with Santu, everything they told us that would happen, happened! And when we had trouble because of a strike, they helped us and solved everything in a way that didnt cost money and neither affected out tour. Highly recommendable! Speak with Giuliana and así her for the guides: Yoel, Jhymmy and Henry, and the cook Moises!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

          Cachora-Aguas Calientes through Choquequirao
          We did the 7 day trekking through Choquequirao ending in Aguas Calientes. That is an awesome trek, the camping very comfortable, the food excellent and the guide and staff are wonderful people. Dany is more than a guide, is a friend that really loves his land and what he does, he loves teaching you on the road everything about the Incas, the faith, the tradition and even culinary secrets. You leave all the stress in those amazing mountains, though you have to be in good shape to enjoy it.

          Amazing experience
          Everything from transportation, to food, to the guide was perfect. We started our day a little far from Cusco city, our air b&b was located in Urabama and our taxi picked up from the house where we went to the train station after, we met our guide at the train station and he was an absolute gem. Had answers to all our questions about Machu Picchu & and we had a clear understanding of the Peruvian wonder. Our tour up to Machu Picchu lasted around 2 hours and then we headed back to the town where our guide gave us a delicious lunch recommendation. This is my second time touring Machu Picchu and I can say the best time as well. Thank you!

          Machu Picchu
          With just one day of anticipation they scheduled our visit to Machu Picchu from Urubamba and back to our hotel. The tour trough Machu Picchu with Victor was very informative. I highly recommend this agency, communication was very easy though out the whole day.

        We had a great experience in Perú thanks to Guliana! We booked tours to Paracas, Ica and Nazca lines. Also had a great time in Cusco, Machu Pichu, Valle Sagrado and Montaña de los 7 colores. She managed to make our trip easy going, full of details and all very well coordinated. We met very kind and knowledgeable guides in all the touristy sites. I recommend to search and plan your visit with Guliana‘s help.
