I could not have wished for a better company and tour guide to do this epic trip with! ( I actually did the 4 day Inka Trail but that wasn’t an option in this link) and had the BEST time ever! Coco is extremely knowledgeable, I learned a lot about the Inkas, the Peruvian culture, history, while we even took me off the normal inka trail and showed me inka ruins normally isn’t on the path. I felt safe and in good hands the whole time and by the end I gained a Peruvian friend! Gracias Mi Amigo!

I have done a ton of excursions throughout my travels and have met multiple guides, but this experience and guide is OUTSTANDING. From the get go, we appreciated the meeting/briefing with our guide and co-owner of the Company ,Coco! He reassured us with regards to the trip and clarified any questions/concerns we had. Next, he went the extra mile in offering us, free of charge, hiking backpacks bigger then our day packs and a pair of walking sticks each to facilitate our journey. Everything was beautifully scheduled and taken care of including transportation from our hotel in Cusco to, the train from Ollentaytambo, to the trek of Machu Picchu, to the food we ate (great portions and complete lunchbox meal) plus dinner in Aguas Calientes and a stay at a hotel. People had told us to consider booking everything separately and do it on your own, but I highly discourage that approach seeing as Coco ensures your transportation, tickets, mountain entrance and permits, food and his services as a private guide along the way! If done on your own, it is not only a hassle but also likely a disaster should you mess up, and essentially it is the same price!
As for the trek, definitely a beautiful experience and view of Machu Picchu, it is so rich and culturally and historically beautiful. Coco does a great job at highlighting all the details of the history, architecture and culture behind the Inca trail and sites and Machu Picchu! He also serves as a source for other needs! We needed help changing flights and he helped us with that and even with transportation to the airport. Beyond 5 star ! Would definitely return to more excursions in Peru with Coco!! Graciassss por todo!

We met our guide Coco in our Cuzco hotel the night before we headed to Machu Picchu.Had a great time with Coco, able to walk at our own pace(brisk) and Coco give us as much information as we wanted as he is so passionate about the area. We travelled to 5 South American countries in 4 weeks with Machu Picchu bring our highlight. Nice dinner and comfy hotel was included in our 2 day tour and probably could of spent another night in the Machu Picchu township as well as Cuzco.After the train and bus back to Cuzco we were met by Coco’s wife Ruty to gook us back to our hotel. Recommend this tour to everyone, thanks guys for a couple of awesome days👌

I highly recommend the vamos team if you are considering a tour in this region. Coco was amazing! Came to our hotel the night before and gave us a run down of the two days (even lent us a backpack)
Coco is Highly knowledgeable and really tailors to what you want to get out of the 2 days. My husband and I did the the tour alone, as we are not into big groups and like to go at our own pace - this was the perfect tour for us and the best way for us see some of the Inca trail and Machu Picchu - the highlight of our holiday 😊👏👍

My trip to Machu Picchu was truly unforgettable because of Ruty. She is kind, friendly, fun, and extremely knowledgable of the areas we traveled and Peruvian history/culture. I am so thankful for her being my tour guide because she also taught me different aspects of the culture that I had been craving to learn more of.
