Had a great time with our guide John and driver Kevin doing the Peguche waterfalls/lake cuicocha + local crafts tour. It was great way to learn from local artisans and purchase directly from the artists instead of getting items through a middleman in the market....More

We had a great time on the horse ride, the guide was excellent. Sadly there was a bit of confusion, after booking the full day ride we only ended up having a half day ride. But the rep at Runa Tupari gave us the refund...More
