        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.

        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

        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.

        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.

        It was once in a lifetime experience. We got a lot of amazing knowledge that you can’t got from Wikipedia and on line search. Strongly recommended for a private tour to unlock all the wonders!

        The best memories in Peru!
        Thank you to our guide for the wonderful explanation. We learned about the history of the city of Cusco and the scenery along the way, details that can't be found on Wikipedia or elsewhere. Highly recommended! A good guide's narration (and photos of course) will make our journey extraordinary and full of beautiful memories!

        Excellent Sacred Valley tour
        We had a fantastic day touring around the Sacred Valley with our driver Luis and Joan our guide. Joan was super friendly, spoke fantastic English and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him learning about the historical significance of the area. Joan was very knowledgeable about the various Inkan sites we visited including Moray, Ollantaytambo, Maras salt mines, and Pisac. We would thoroughly recommend the tour to friends and family 😊

      I booked the tour a few weeks before the trip. They contacted me about my travel arrangements and said they would meet me day of at 9:15 at the Aguas Calientes train station. A few day later, I contacted them to ask if the 10am entrance time to MP was appropriate as I was being asked by the ticket seller. The tour guide service said yes. Then at a later date, they texted and said for $50 more I could have a better deal and stay later at MP. I didn’t see that text but by the time I did they had retracted the offer and now were saying I needed to meet them at the gate of MP at 11am. Their written English was poor and when I asked why the change in plan, they said it was a group tour and I needed to accommodate the group and either enter at 7am or at 11am. I explained that I had paid for a small group semi-private tour of up to 4 people. But they insisted that I was wrong and said that if that had been the case I would have been charged more. When I looked at their website they appeared to have changed the tour options and details. Then they cancelled my tour the day before the trip telling me if I wanted a private tour I would need to re-book it. Of course, I chose to re-book with another company instead.

      sorry for the inconvenience we will work to improve our services. We are sure that you got confused when booking a shared tour thinking of a private one. and the best thing was to cancel that service so as not to incur a fault. thanks for your understanding.

      We had Emerson and Jair as our tourist guide. They were great, kind, patient and knowledgeable. We had Spanish and English speaking people in our group and everyone had a great experience. We learned a lot about the beautiful Inca culture.

      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 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!

      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

      Edith, my guide for Machu Picchu exceeded all expectations. From the moment she picked me up from Machu Picchu train station, I felt safe and taken care of. She was knowledgeable, not only about Machu Picchu, but about Peru’s history and it was a pure joy to learn from her why this place is named one of the seven wonders of the world. Without the understanding and the knowledge, the experience would not be as outstanding. I thank her for giving me this amazing experience.

      Visited Peru for the first time earlier this year with some family and friends. We arranged for private transport and tours for our group with Joan as our guide. Throughout the trip, service was always thoughtful and attentive, making any necessary changes to accommodate our needs. Thoroughly enjoyed all the knowledge and information that Joan was able to provide, but more specifically his personal experiences and stories that he shared with us. Highly recommended for anyone planning to visit Cusco. Hope to visit again in the future!
