      Retirement bucket list adventure made easy via private tour with excellent guides and drivers.
      Amazing tour! Our tour guide Joan is so knowledgeable and passionate about the Inca culture and history. My father has done stair limitations and he made sure to go slow, take the climb slowly and recommend what to skip. Great communication with Joan via WhatsApp before the tour. Remember to tip your tour guide and driver for all that they do. Highly recommend especially for those with some limitations. Private tours are worth the money and peace of mind.

      First time back to Peru in 30 years and 100% loved it.
      The trip was extremely easy to navigate, from the moment we landed in Cusco, through out Machu Picchu and even the hotel we were taken care of. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating. Juan Carlos our tour guide took so many photos and showed so much excitement and passion for Machu Picchu and the culture. Views were also breath taking. 10/10 recommend to a friend!

      Private Transportation
      Joan and his crew were very responsive and accommodating throughout my entire time with them. I had an Airbnb in Sacred Valley, but all of my tours started in Cusco Square. The transportation services had no problem picking me up and dropping me back off after my tour ended. I felt very safe and the price was very affordable. I would recommend this service! Mucho Gracias

      amazing experience, knowledgeable guide
      trip of a lifetime! we were fortunate to have a very knowledgeable and professional guide, he got us at the hotel, and guided us through the process of embarking and check in at the ruins gate, due to some paperwork issues, that he sorted out in a very professional way. The tour route, was fantastic, he suggested the best viewing points, the best angles for pictures, he described the history and responded to ALL the questions with knowledge and VERY fluent in english

      amazing experience, knowledgeable guide
      traveling with family is not easy, but it was a smooth process with the assistance of Mi Guia, the guide picked us up from the hotel, took us to the bus line and dealt with the onboard process to get us to the ruins. Very knowledgeable and VERY good english, my sons and daughter 23, 25, 27, asked a LOT of questions, and he answered them in a very informative way

      safe and convenient
      1st time travelers, we were fortunate to have Joan and his staff taking care of us, the transportation on reliable vehicles equipped with oxigen, (that we needed at some point) and peace of mind not to worry about wondering on the streets to catch a bus. my kids love the safety and convenience.

      Outstanding, peace of mind for 1st time travellers
      This was our first time visiting Cusco and Machu pichu, and it would not have been nearly as smooth if it wasn't for our tour guide Joan. We had lost documentation that Joan helped us with the paperwork to follow as he knows of the process, to ensure a smooth travel, among other last minute issues that came up. If we didn't have Joan as our guide we wouldn't have been able to solve these issues and enjoy our vacation. My sons and daughter ages 23 25 and 27 were extremely pleased and comfortable. Besides that, he is extremely knowledgeable on the history of the Inca. Joan also speaks VERY fluent English, among Italian and even the ancient Quechua language. We were in very capable hands and so would you. You'll have peace of mind with him. Like we did. So at ease.

      JOAN gave my family and best first experience in Cusco!
      JOAN/john/joão (different names for different countries’ guests) is THE guide you want to do a tour with. He has a history degree and absolutely puts it to use by painting a vivid picture of how the Incan civilization came to life and unfortunately fell. Accidents happen but he is extremely kind, understanding, and accommodating; my whole family lost our Peruvian ID’s and he personally drove us to the police station in Cusco and helped us report them as lost so we would still be able to go to Macchu Picchu! When I was sick from the altitude, he didn’t hesitate stop at pharmacy, had oxygen and an SPO2 monitor on-hand, and was constantly checking on me. Joan plans the tour according to what YOU want to see and how much time you have, and in English or Spanish! He told me personally, but you can already tell that tell he is super passionate about what he does and never gets tired of doing these tours because he just loves sharing Peruvian culture, and it honestly makes the trip that much better. do yourself a favor and have a safe, fun, and informative trip with JOAN!! Here’s some pictures he took :)

      Joan- Private tour guide
      Joan is the best tour guide I’ve seen in all my years of travel. He was extremely knowledgeable of the history of the Incas and was amazing with the range of his knowledge. Besides those points, he was very accommodating to our needs, and he made a custom itinerary specifically tailored to us. He went from a tour guide to becoming a friend of me and my group. I wouldn’t go with any other tour guide for the Cusco region.

      Highly recommended
      By far one of the best tours I have ever taken. My original tour was canceled hours before I was to take off and this one appeared. I booked and they were extremely helpful in getting me an entry ticket. Juan Carlos met up with me at the plaza and we rode up together. He was so informative and proud! I learned so much from the information he gave. He was also the best photographer. I usually never take photos but he told me where to stand and how to pose. I have so many photos to show my family and friends. Grateful for his help. Would recommend to everyone!

      The best service in town!!
      Tour to Ica and Huacachina We had done 4 different tours with them in Cusco area so, when we learned about the possibility of visiting Ica from Lima, we spoke to Joan and in 30 min. we had a fully organised private tour to Ica for the next day! There's nothing else as a tourist you can ask for. The tour around Ica was very nice and Huacachina was simply breathtaking. Thanks to Carlos who was very friendly and showed us the main spots in town. "Chancho a la botija" was delicious!! Thank you guys!!

      Our guide, Joan did a wonderful job every single day we spent with him. He worried about us and that everything would be perfect, as it was. We have learned a lote about the culture and the country. He certainly made our experience in Perú unforgettable.

      Excellent! World class guides in Cusco
      Tours we did with them: Sacred Valley, Inka Trail + Machu Picchu, Rainbow mountain and Humantay Lagoon. Amazing experience! Our guide, Joan, made sure everything was perfectly organised, plus he is like a walking enciclopedia of Peru! The attention was excellent and they are fully trustworthy. Additionally, we had the chance to visit some local businesses and so that help the communities around Cusco. If I have the chance to come back to Peru, 100% will go with them.
