    Super cool ruins very close to Cusco. There's no need for an organized tour here. Take a cab and hire one of the many tour guides hanging out at the site to take you around and then walk downhill back to Cusco. Don't want to walk back? Pay the cab to wait for you. Your hotel can arrange that for you. You can go at your own pace and you'll spend less money than on a tour. As a bonus if you have the cab wait, you can stop at other ruins like Qenqo and/or Tambomachay.

    Bioandean Expeditions and their team put in a lot of effort to make this trip better. We really wanted to see the lagoon but a little worried about the altitude. Jhoel the guide convinced us and always walked with us assuring us and encouraging us, he did a tremendous job to make this something special
    .This is the first excursion we did when we arrived in Cusco and it was an incredible experience. The views are spectacular and the turquoise lagoon is truly wonderful. The whole day trip was well worth it and we highly recommend travelers not to miss out on this hidden gem.

    Wow! The 4-day Classic Inca Trail with Terra Quechua Peru was the adventure of a lifetime. We have a professional team of guides, chefs and porters who took care of everything along the way, but gave us the freedom to explore and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. My guides Donato and Alex were the best of the best. They created a very fun atmosphere, were very knowledgeable and spoke very good English which was very helpful to me. The food was amazing too. I had some of the best food of my life on this trip. And the views!!! The views are stunning and will really take your breath away. This is a bucket list trip that everyone should take at some point in their life. And if you can go with Terra Quechu, do it!

    Definitely somewhere to go and see when in Cusco, nice fountain and areas to sit. you will be constantly approached by people trying to sell items, they are friendly and if you say no will continue on, does get a bit annoying after a while though as cant sit in peace so would recommend taking a stroll through and finding a quieter square to sit in.

    Being new visiting Peru, we went with the guys from the Bioandean Expeditions agency who in a previous tour gave the confidence to continue touring with them.
    once again surprised with the wonders that Cusco keeps inside.
    The route, the walk, the landscape, everything is really impressive, you feel grateful to life for giving you the opportunity to see so many wonders.

    The first day, I just saw this cathedral from the outside. Honestly, that might have been enough. The second day, we went inside. There is SO much history and there are lots of neat artifacts to enjoy. Definitely go inside.

    We stayed in the San Blas area which we really enjoyed. Loved the thin cobblestone streets, many great shops and restaurants.

    Very fun time. The sales associates are VERY prone to get you to buy. Very fun to pick up some essentials/gifts/novelties.

    This is such a nice Ancient build, it shows a clear example that the Incas were incredible architects and made unbelievable templos around the city centre.
    Our guide show us each templo and explained all the history.

    I loved this tour, I can say that it is one of my best travel experiences and that it did not seem as commercial a tour as others in Peru. The Bioandean Expeditions agency is very good, they gave us a great service, they came to look for us quite punctually between 3:00 am and 3:30 am, that allowed us to be one of the first groups to climb the mountain, breakfast and lunch were delicious and the price of everything is worth it.
    The way to this place is full of incredible views, I did the "short" way, an hour there and an hour and a half back, walking next to a mountain that shone with its different colors and also next to a beautiful snowy I recommend very comfortable clothes, shoes with grip, bring water, something to eat (cereal bar and nuts). On the way up it doesn't feel that cold but at the top it gets really cold and the wind is strong so I suggest wearing a hat and gloves and a good jacket for those who think they need them, the mountain is absolutely beautiful!

    Wonderful place ideal to go with the family, it is a kind of mini zoo of llamas and alpacas, on visits to the place there is a local guide who explains to you about the upbringing and the destination of its precious wool.

    The entrance fee is included in the tourist ticket. You can spend 4 or 5 hours here.
    Try to arrive early to avoid tours.
    One of the most important works of irrigation on terraces of the Incas

    The explanations in English are good. They could make an English version of the 5 minute movie in the beginning. They have McReynolds few artifacts compared with the Larco museum in Lima but what they have is very fine. The lady in the front desk was very nice and courteous.
