    There are many agencies in Cusco and I can assure you that Terra Quechua Peru works very seriously. From the first moment the communication and attention was excellent. They arranged everything in advance. I give them a score of 10 for their excellent work.
    I dreamed a lot about going to the lagoon and I was not disappointed, it is a beautiful place, the walk is more or less an hour, however, despite being easy, the lack of oxygen is a personal challenge, however, there are many horses in case you need them. In my case I preferred to reach the top alone, it is too beautiful. and the walk to the lagoon is spectacular. I recommend it.

    My friends and I booked a classic 4 days Inka Trail with Local Trekkers Peru and it was incredibly very well arranged, they were ver helpful throughout the booking and made the whole process a breeze.

    During the Trail our guide Hendri was outstanding, we had some great laughs together and he really looked out for us when we got sick. He handled all of the campsites, food orders and found us the best campsites along the way. Always with a big smile and a sense of humour. also he is very well informed about the Peruvian Andes, he always told us some stories about the Incas, once in Machupicchu, he took us to another level with his explanation about this amazing Inca city Thanks Amigo!!!.
    Local Trekkers Peru, They take great care of his clients, they provided us with enough porters to make this trip easier, and let me tell you that these guys will take all our admiration since without them none of this amazing experience would have been possible, they were the owners of the show. Also we had enough food for our group very well prepared, tasty and varied, Cristobal our cookman was Fantastic he was always in good mood, thanks to him we don’t worry at all about food, he is a genius.

    Finally I can't recommend this company and these guys highly enough. Seriously, look no further.

    a regular trip that is worth visiting is totally impressive, with Andean culture that is appreciated, a tip is to take medication for altitude sickness

    Thank you again.

    Had an amazing time riding motorcycles with Everth. He made sure we were safe, and attentive to any needs. He led the way around the greater cusco area as we took in epic mountain views. And he played “el condor pasa” on the flute!

    We had an amazing time doing the 4D/3N Inca Trail tour with Sam Travel. Daniel was an excellent guide! We were always very impressed by his extensive knowledge about the history of all of the sites that we went to, and about the Incas in general. We were always very well looked after. The food that Mario cooked us was some of the best we've had on our trip so far, and it was all cooked in a tent! Thank you also to Bonofacio and all our porters - you really made our trip even more special.

    TreXperience is a local company who looks after the local people. If you want to support them and learn a lot about the inka and cechua culture, pmease go for this company. They were really good. And by the way, if you have a lot of problems going uphill, a porter or Robinson will carry you. I had a lot of fun with our tourguides Robinson and Maribel.

    Ricardo was a most excellent guide for our Sacred Valley full day tour. We went a couple of days before our trek to Machu Picchu, and I think learning about the culture, customs and history of the Inca and Quechua people really enhanced our experience in Machu Picchu.

    Ricardo was patient, knowledgeable, kept us on track and made the whole experience enjoyable. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone visiting Peru!

    We don’t know where to start to review the WONDERFUL experience we had with Llama Path. We used their service for an excursion to Rainbow Mountain and for the Huchuy Qosqo trek. Their office staff (Joe) made everything so easy and they were so organized. Everything went so smoothly thanks to their attention to detail! Naida was our guide to Rainbow Mountain. She was so attentive and always made sure we were safe and enjoying ourselves. She carried things when we were hiking up and was full of good information. I’m sorry I can’t remember the name of the chef but he was excellent as well. Gabriel Martinez was our guide for our Huchuy Qosqo trek. Words can’t express how perfect he is at his job. He is so passionate about Peru, the customs, the Inca people, and the traditions of his country. He is a perfect guide for this region. He has so much knowledge he could be a professor at the University! He told wonderful stories and kept everything so entertaining and educational as well. If you can request him for your trek, do it. He will not disappoint. He has lived in this region his whole life and travelled these trails MANY times. He was even a ranger at Machu Picchu prior to starting at Llama Path. You can’t beat his knowledge of the place. Moses was our chef and WOW what a gem he is. My son is gluten-free and Moses was so conscientious and took such good care of him. All of our meals were delicious, presented beautifully and gluten-free. When that was impossible he always had something special for my son. I celebrated a birthday while on the path. Moses did not know that before we started but somehow whipped up a birthday cake for me for breakfast on my big day. It was decorated and beautiful and the whole staff sang happy birthday to me. A beautiful memory I will treasure ♥️!! Speaking of the staff, our porters, Eno, Rudy, Victor, Flavio and Denny were like Superman!! Carrying their huge packs and running up the mountains was really something to see! Our campsite was ready to go and so comfortable. They were always running ahead to make sure everything was ready for us when we arrived. They even brought coca tea early in the morning to our tents before breakfast. They were all perfect gentleman and so kind. Such hard workers. Most importantly we felt safe and taken care of every step of the way. There was never a time where we were concerned or worried about anything. Gabriel and the porters made this such an easy, fun and exciting trek!! Save yourself time and energy looking for your tour company in Cusco/Machu Picchu and just book with Llama Path.

    We had a great trip in cusco, with inkatrail and rainbowmountain with our guide alberto. He was always on time, had great knowlegde, and was prepared. We really appreciated to just enjoy. Inkatrail was amazing, hard, but absolutely worth it. So was the rainbowmountain, to arrive the top as the sun rise was a special experience.

    This was truly a special experience. I'm so glad this was the company my boyfriend picked for our 4 day Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu! This was the hardest physical and mental thing I've ever done but I knew I could make it because of the expertise, energy, guidance and support from Daniel, our guide, and his amazing team! Daniel's knowledge of the trail and it's history made our journey really come to life!

    I was sick from the altitude (even with Diamox) but felt so cared for and supported every step of the way. The food Chef Felix prepared was delicious and kept us nourished for our hikes each day! The care Leonardo put into setting up the meals and keeping us hydrated and the way Rudy had our tents and camp site set for us, made each meal and evening restful and relaxing. Thank you also to Moises, Romolo, Juanita, Pilar, Gido as well! (Sorry if I spelled anyone's name incorrectly) We couldn't have done this without you!

    If you're thinking about visiting Peru this really is the best company to go with! We used them for multiple tours and have nothing but great things to say! Thank you and blessings always!!

    What a fantastic week spent sightseeing around Peru. I would highly recommend South Adventure Peru to show you around this beautiful country. We had 18 of us in our party. Ruben and his team took outstanding care of us, making hotel arrangements, entries into Machu Picchu, Pisqa Ruins, Moras Maray, Shanman Cleansing Ceremony, Salt Mines, airline and train tickets, and many other events. Our tour guides, Romulo and Andre, shared incredible knowledge of their country, providing us with a greater understanding. I would highly recommend Sout Adventure Peru to give you a grand tour of their country.
