    Amazing Tour
    Very informative tour of the historic Inca sites. My guide Jose was on time at my hotel and supplied water. Jose was very knowledgeable about all the sites, the history of them, and the continuing cultural traditions. He made sure to explain the incredible feats the Inca empire achieved through their construction techniques. He was patient and was easy to talk to. Would recommend!

    Lobo Fantastico
    We had an amazing private tour with Lobo. We went to several ruins around Cusco, we visited the Cathedral in the main square , the Temple of Sun Koricancha, Sacsayhuaman, Qenko, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay. Lobo was very considerate, attentive and knowledgeable. It was beautiful to visit these astounding ruins and to hear their tales spoken with great respect and understanding by Lobo. He was very connected to the ancient perspective of the indigenous people of the Inca empire and shared the reverence for Mother Earth and her great offerings. Highly recommend, we plan to do more tours with Andes Peru and hope to request Lobo!

    Definitely recommended for your Cusco Incan tours!
    We booked the Sacsawaman tour with Jose Ttito and couldn’t be more pleased with the knowledge and service provided by this company. We visited four different sites and on each Jose made sure all of our questions were answered and provided water for everyone. Jose has an in-depth knowledge and respect for the Incan culture and it shows! Definitely recommend this tour company for your Cusco site seeing! Ask for Jose!!

    Perfect Intro to Machu Picchu
    We booked through Sam Travel Peru group in Cusco and had a spectacular tour! They picked us up from our Airbnb and took us all around for a wonderful afternoon. Our guide was Joaquin Arias (be sure to ask for him) who was unbelievably knowledgeable about the ancient history of the Incan civilization. The tour was a perfect introduction to our visit to Machu Picchu. Afterward they made dinner suggestions and dropped us off at the restaurant door. I would definitely recommend Sam Travel Peru and Joaquin!

    Good tour of the city
    The guide was on time to collect me from the hotel. Bring cash 15 soles to the temple and 70 for the other site. They will not take dollars or card Great explanation on the sites, and would've never known to have visited all these places by myself. Water provided

    Great experience with José!
    José was an excellent guide and I appreciated that it ended up being a private tour. He has excellent context and the sites are truly breathtaking. Definitely a fantastic experience and an efficient way to see and learn about Cusco’s wealth of archaeological locations just outside of the city center. Thanks again!

    Great experience with Jose!
    I took half day tour by myself and couldn’t ask for better. Jose and Anthony made it easy and fun. They picked me up at the hotel and made sure that I had a great time. Jose is highly educated and knowledgeable about the Inca history and I’ve learned a lot from him. This excursion will definitely stay in my memory for ever. Thank you guys for being awesome!🤍✨

    Great tour!
    Great tour. Captured many of the highlights we wanted to see. We didn't feel rushed and was asked many questions about the city.

    As I was the English speaker. Jose was kind enough to do a private tour with me. He was nice enough to pick up and drop off near my Airbnb, where often other tours would not go to. He was very knowledgeable of the archeological sites we visited. Any question on the sites, or Peru in general he was kind to offer answers. As well as take pictures of me. We also stopped at this alpaca place "Manos de la Comunidad". Be mindful, it's a bit on the expensive side.

    Super city tour with Jose Tito
    Great way to explore the city and the ruins. Jose Tito was my guide and he was amazing. I recommend him to anyone doing this tour! Great knowledge with everything. Went on my pace as i need to acclimatise. He speaks english well too. We had a very good Peruvian lunch as his recommendation. And Jose our driver was fantastic as he drove us to the ruins and alpaca farm. The tour was supposed to be 10people max but i was lucky i was the only one and got joined by 2 other people in the afternoon.

    Half Day Tour
    The private tour was very informative and the tour guide was a pleasure to spend time with. His English was very good and the driver was very conscientious
  • martinpV2669JZ
    Enlightened by Cusco
    There were just two of us on the tour and we were accompanied by Miguel, our guide and Antonio, our driver so that we were treated to a very personal tour of the four Inca sites in the hills overlooking the City of Cusco. Miguel is a very knowledgeable guide who has a wealth of information about the history of the area and especially the Inca trail and how it links the important sites across South America. 10 out of 10.

El camino hacia el punto de inicio desde Cusco fue de 3:30h pero fue excelente, la naturaleza hizo arte con las rocas, la vista genial. La ruta de la caminata está en perfecto estado y no llega mucha gente. El camino que tomamos fue el de 1h de subida de caminata. La estructura hecha por los Preincas sobre las rocas en un precipicio es sorprendente.
