We are an adventuresome family that enjoys having freedom and flexibility when traveling. Because of this, we were seriously considering renting a car to travel throughout the Sacred Valley, Humantay Lake, and Rainbow Mountain. The lack of parking in the historical section of Cusco as well as rental car clauses that negated insurance when traveling off the asphalt persuaded us to hire Isaac instead. What a great decision!!! We spent 3 full days with him and had a wonderful experience!! Isaac is one of those rare individuals that instinctively understands when the group is eager for a guide, and when we are tired from the days excursion and just want to relax. He understood when our group wanted him to come along with us on a hike, and when it was better to give us a little space. He speaks excellent english, and is extremely knowledgeable about all of the sights in Cusco and throughout the region. He is also an extremely nice and interesting person, having grown up in a small, extremely rural village, worked as a trekking porter for years, and then ultimately put himself through "tourism school" and formed his own business and become an official guide. His van is large, modern and comfortable, and even comes with a couple of oxygen tanks for those that need it when suffering altitude sickness. He is also a very safe driver, and his prices are extremely fair. I can't recommend a better guide/driver for your Peruvian adventure!!!

We travelled to Sacred valley and Cusco region for 1 week during Dec 2019. Right from start we were greeted and taken good care by Isaac and his team in guiding us to one of a kind spots in this region. Isaac was very mindful in planning out trip and ensured the comfort of our family (we travelled with our toddler). He is extremely knowledgeable about the entire Urubamba region and the fascinating history of Incas. During our day trip to Chinceros, I suffered severe altitude sickness (@4000 meter) having breathing difficulties and losing my conscious. However, Isaac was proactive and immediately provided me oxygen and followed up monitoring my oxygen saturation and pulse. I am thankful to Isaac for prioritizing on our safety and quickly turning the bad incident to just a minor lapse.
Thanks again to Chacras. Looking forward to traveling to beautiful Peru soon.

Reuben and Isaac are a power brother duo! Reuben is SO FUN and so attentive. He made sure our oxygen levels were always where they needed to be during our difficult hike in high altitude at Laguna Huamantay. He is so fun for a big hike! Isaac is so passionate about the history of his country. And he is so welcoming, responsive and easy to work with when planning your day trips. I definitely think he is open to customizing any days trips you want to do. I definitely recommend booking private tours from Cusco with Reuben and Isaac!

Many people have said it, but Isaac is amazing and has demoted other tour guides and company’s for me, he is the gold standard. And I have travelled to 25 countries.

We originally planned just one tour with him to lake Humantay. We needed to leave from Cusco and be dropped off in Ollantaytambo. That meant we’d need a private tour and transfer. I found Chacras website, and Isaac responded straight away on WhatsApp. He offered us a good price, his van had oxygen, and we gave it a go.

When you are with Isaac, you feel like a team. He isn’t leading you around; you’re exploring together. Because he is both a guide and a driver, you get the best of both worlds.

For the Humantay Lake tour, he walked us to the head of the trail and then was there waiting for us when we returned. He then drove us back through the pass before it closed an onwards to Ollantaytambo. He named us “champions” for our speedy hike.

So, we arranged another tour with him the very next day, this time a tour of the sacred valley : ollantaytambo, Moray, Maras, Chinchero, Huillac village. Another great day. We avoided the crowds since we made our own schedule together, he explained everything in terms of Inca history. took photos of us, and waited for us patiently when we got distracted by some amazing alpaca clothing.

So, guess what? We arranged a final transfer with Isaac a few days later going from Cusco to Puno. Again, good price and flexibility to stop, etc.

Isaac is fun, experienced, interesting, super flexible. His prices are competitive and in many cases, much better value than what other tours are offering. He gives you great advice about other parts of Peru. I wish I’d known about him when I planned the trip! We strongly recommended him, you will not regret arranging any tour or transfer with this man. We literally spent the rest of the trip saying “if only we had Isaac…”

Isaac was a great guide on our trip to Rainbow Mountain. He also catered to our needs, scheduling the entire trip with us on less than 24 hours' notice. I would highly recommend him and this travel company if you're in Cusco.

Hiring these guys for your rainbow mountain transportation is a must! We had our tour booked within an hour of contacting them on their website in Cusco (we booked two days beforehand). Our driver was great and he would give us little tidbits about each town along the way to the mountain. He also allowed us to leave our belongings in the car while we hiked and have us free oxygen just in case (which we didn't end up needing but was reassuring to have)! It was a great experience! The views on the drive and from the hike were incredible! Can't recommend enough. We are so so glad we did this!

We went on a one week family trip from Dallas to Peru, and Isaac was the main reason why it was such an amazing experience! We went on a private tour of Sacred Valley, Lake Humantay, and Rainbow Mountain - we also arranged for Isaac to pick us up from Ollantaytambo station to go back to Cusco after a day in Machu Picchu.

Isaac is a wealth of knowledge about anything Cusco, the surrounding areas, and the Incas history. My favorite part of each day was listening to the stories he shared with us en route to our destinations. Isaac was flexible, punctual, and very patient with us during the challenging hikes to Rainbow Mountain and Lake Humantay!

We did our due diligence before selecting Chacras. The main differentiator to us (compared to other travel companies we came across on the internet) was the cost. Chacras is run by the locals - while they may not have the extravagant marketing campaigns as the corporate owned travel companies, I can attest that they offer superior service and take care of their customers with a signifcantly lower cost. 5 stars!!!

Excellent tour! Pick up was right on time and our tour guide, Isaac, was very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed learning about the history and landscape of Peru. Seeing the beautiful mountains and Lake Humantay is something I’ll never forget and I’m glad we had Isaac to show us around. We rode horses up to the lake, which we recommend if you haven’t adjusted to the altitude. Overall, the tour is great value and we highly recommend. We’ll definitely book again next time we’re in Peru!

We booked Isacc from Chacras Travel for a day trip to the alternative rainbow mountain (Palccoyo ) in September 2022 and would highly recommend his services to others. Before booking, I spoke with Isacc over WhatsApp and he was very responsive to all our questions and helped us decide which of the rainbow mountains would be best for us to visit, and was flexible in the time he would pick us up from Cusco (we wanted to avoid the early start time demanded by most rainbow mountain tours). We spoke to him again a day before the booked tour to confirm it was still going ahead, and on the day, he messaged us to let us know he would be a little late due to heavy traffic which we appreciated so we were not concerned about whether he would turn up. His vehicle was clean, spacious and comfortable, and Isacc himself was very friendly and an excellent guide. He drove safely, and told us a lot about the area, answering any questions we had. We learnt a lot about the local community and culture that we simply wouldn’t have known if he had not been so easy to chat with. The drive up to the mountains and the rainbow mountains themselves were incredible- well worth the long drive! I’d finished the Inca trail the day prior so my legs were pretty tired (part of the reason we chose Palccoyo vs Vinicunca), and despite having been at altitude for over a week, the increased altitude at the mountain top was still noticeable- Isacc did not rush us and allowed us to walk the path at our own rate so we could catch our breath, enjoy the views, and take as many photos as we liked. Id highly recommend booking Isacc for this day trip or any other- he’s truly a first rate guide and if I were to go back I’d certainly be booking him for more tours!

Isaac was an awesome guide! We did both siete colores and humantay lake with him and thought it was very worth a little extra money to get our own private tour so that we could walk at our own pace. Waking up a few hours later than the rest of the tours was so worth it too. Most of the places we went weren’t very crowded because of the time that we went. Isaac was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the first tour so much that we booked a second tour with him the next day!
