Amy at Cusi travel was outstanding. She connected us with an excelent guide that spend 5 days with us, as well as quality drivers, vehicles, tours and more. We did the 2 day Inca trail hike to Machu Picchu, sacred valley tour including lunch in a local's home, Cusco city tour, and a trip to Polccoyo Mountain to see the rainbow colors.

She works locally and gives back to the community through scholarships and local charity. Also, her pricing was 1/2 that of Peru 4 Less for the same tours that we originally booked. I highly recommend Cusi Travels, and if you get the chance, ask for Valeriano as your guide. He was very knowledgeable, prompt, and fun!

We had an absolutely incredible time on the Inca Trail hike with Cusi Travels. They were amazing, catered to our every need, and helped us make sure that we were prepped for the hike. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and told us about Incan history throughout the tour. The food during the hike was amazing — way beyond what I expected. Our team of Quechuas were amazing as well and made sure our every need was met and that we were ready for the hike! I would absolutely recommend Cusi Travel to anyone traveling in Peru

We had an amazing experience with Cusi Travel. Amy was our contact to set things up and she was super helpful, quick to respond and answered all of our many questions. We decided on the classic 4 day Inca Trail and we are so glad we did. It was a once in a lifetime hike. Yes, it was challenging, but it was also the most beautiful and rewarding experience. Machu Picchu was absolutely worth the hike, it is truly a wonder to behold. Words and pictures don't do it justice. For us, the journey to get there was just as incredible as well. So many breathtaking views and archaeological sites to see along the way. The experience of camping each night and bonding with our team is something we will never forget. Our guide Edy was the absolute best, we highly recommend requesting him if possible. We can't imagine hiking the trail without him. The passion he has for his culture is truly inspiring. He has so much knowledge and expertise, we have no doubt we had the best guide on the trail. He is kind, genuine and always made sure we were doing OK. He is a true friend, we will surely miss him! Our team of Quechuas were wonderful as well. It's incredible to see how hard they work, we admired and appreciated them so much! Our chef Edwin made delicious, gourmet meals. It's amazing what he was able to cook for us, he's a real fun guy too! We are beyond happy and satisfied with the team at Cusi Travel and we want to thank them for helping make our bucket list adventure the experience of a lifetime! If you're looking for the best service, guides and a company that cares and gives back to their local community, look no further!

Edy and Cusi Travel exceeded all lei expectations.

We hiked the Lares Trail for my mom’s 70th birthday, and our group included 5 of us in total plus Edy and our support team.

From the delicious food to Edy’s incredible knowledge, the trip was a dream. Edy went at a comfortable pace for all of us, anticipated our every need and kept us laughing even through the most difficult parts. His high skill level at playing cards and extensive historical knowledge was a cherry on top.

Cusi took care of all the details as well, from delivering our luggage to appropriate drop off spots during the trek and accommodating our dietary restrictions.

I would recommend Cusi to anyone looking to do a trek to Machu Picchu.

My wife and I did a full day private Humantay Lake starting and ending in Cusco last week (end of May 2021).

I live in Peru, and have done several treks with may types of tour operators. And, I must say that Cusi Travel have been one of the best, if not a best one.

Jose, owner of Cusi Travel, was our guide. His English is far better than most local trek guides. His inspiring life story, passion and knowledge (from history to geology) of the region was an added value.

A true test of the quality of an operator comes when things go wrong. On our way back to Cusco, there was a road accident that would close the road (perhaps for many hours). So Jose and our driver were quick on their feet to figure out an alternative off-road options though remote andean villages. A unique experience with the sunset and mountain views. We got to our Cusco hotel safe and happy.

Thank you Cusi!

Talked to 4 companies to book a 2 day Inca Trail tour, we got clear and detailed information and a good price on an upgrade to a great hotel in Aguas Calientes.

We got an unrequested pre tour meeting where the guide provided yet more information, myself, better half and 10 year old daughter were lucky enough to get a private tour versus being dumped into another tour company.

Pick up was on time, our train was cancelled to KM104, our guide negotiated a free upgrade to the Vista dome train. When the tour started our guide Sonya moved at exactly our pace, we got the best boxed lunch I've ever had on any tour, it was from a high end eatery in Ollantaytambo, we all demolished the chicken sandwich, Quinoa wrap, chocolate brownie, fruit and cereal bar, each of which you'd buy in a cafe.

Our guide was great at Machu Picchu on both the first and second days and a bit of fun during the dinner on the first night.

We booked a walking tour for the day after the Inca Trail and it took us top parts of Cusco we did not know existed from previous visits, very much a case of asking for local knowledge, we got far better deals on souvenirs than we would have got asking for prices ourselves.

All in all a great travel agency that will deliver not just a tour but a local guide with a genuine passion for this special part of the world.

We planned this trip 2 years ago and of course Covid stopped us! Amy at Cusi travel was instrumental in helping us make the trip happen last week! Cusi travel is a family owned business and we were treated like family! We had 8 wonderful days to explore and learn about Cusco, the Inca history, and the culture of the peoples in this area of Peru. We had Edwin as our guide for the entire week and we’re so impressed with his knowledge and passion for his country. Amy put together a perfect week for us leading up to the 2 day Inca trail hike. We did the Cusco city tour, the Cusco day hike, visited the sacred valley highlights being the Moras salt mines, animal refuge, Pisac, Moray terraces and a sweet visit to a local prek class that Cusi travel supports.
The hike and tour of Machu Picchu was fantastic ( a little rainy but still spectacular).
If you want the best, call Cusi Travel!

Our guide, Flor, was with us for 3 days including an all-day hike on the Short Inca Trail. We are a family with 2 teen boys and all of us agreed that we could have never had as excellent an experience without Flor. She was there to get us buses when we needed it, she took amazing photos of us in the best places for the greatest shots; she knew who to talk to everywhere we went and she also knew how to keep it brief when that was important. The short Inca trail is only 1 day of hiking but it’s long and sometimes rainy and difficult and Flor was amazing the whole time.
She also took us on a tour of the sacred valley and just seems to know everyone wherever we go, maximizing our experience and making it as educational and enjoyable as possible. If anyone asks me how to see Macchu Picchu I will direct them to Flor immediately.

My husband and I went to Peru for our 5-year wedding anniversary and used Cusi Travel to plan. Amy and Jose were absolutely wonderful, helping us to plan everything from tours to drivers to ensuring we were always picked up and dropped off on time. The driver, Carlos, and tour guide, Sonia, that they secured us with were both phenomenal. Really knowledgeable about everything while also being quite personable.

Having Cusi Travel while in Peru gave us security and the ability to relax and enjoy without stressing about the details. Having someone we could message at any time for assistance made the trip seamless. Peru is a beautiful place and I highly recommend using Cusi Travel to make the trip!

I would highly recommend Cusi Travel to handle your bespoke plans to visit Peru. I worked with Amy on the travel details and she was incredibly detail oriented which made for a perfect trip from beginning until end. Cusi went above and beyond the call of duty and was there all along the way of our trip. We were teamed up with Puma as our guide and he was absolutely tremendous in his knowledge of Peru and the Inca culture. I was traveling with my mother and he helped here realize her dreams and he could have been better or more patient. I would highly recommend the entire Cusi team and I will be back to Peru and use them again. You need to look no further for your Peru planning needs. A++++++++++++++
