Just finished this amazing afternoon tour with Luis. It was a lively, informative and extensive introduction to the indigenous people , their history, culture, language and way of life. An excellent and varied experience including a weaving demonstration, an introduction to local music and topped off by Luis showing us how to make a Pisco sour before we sampled this great speciality. Thank you Luis and Philipe. Brilliant afternoon!

Thank Joan M

Having done many free walking tours all over Europe and South America I love to use them as an introduction to a new city as well as learn a little about the culture. I found the Cusco free walking tour to be extremely dry in information. The guide didn't seem to be very passionate about the city and a number of the stops were businesses which made the tour feel like a sales pitch at times.

Can't remember our guides names, but he was warm and congenial, but his english was not the best. still he did a good job. this is a nice compact tour that starts off the main square takes you to the mercardo, some inca building history and then up to san blas for one of the best views of the city and a pisco tasting. I still gave the guy a good tip, others gave change which was an embarrassment. For three hours between $5-10 seems reasonable, not 50 cents. Remember, the tours are free and these guys are working hard.

Thank you very much for your good wishes and opinion.

Indeed our guides know that much of them city because they mostly relate to local culture instead of international culture, hence they must improve them english, but we make sure that little by little not only the pronunciation improves but mostly them general culture.

We invite you to keep on walking with us in Lima, Cusco and Arequipa, we are creating the revolution of this traditional way to know cities around the world.

Good tour! Gives you the basics of the city plus a little more. Really helped me get to know the history and move within the city alone. Good guide. Knew all the answers to our questions

Had this tour 2 days ago and it was great, the ascending steps at the beginning did take some breath due to the high altitude but it was totally worth it, they even took us to some places with vans! Good to explore quite many parts of surroundings tho it waa raining hard.
