This tour was one of my favorites - it's an all day tour with a variety of places and people to visit. Just when you think you're done with the tour, you are still on your way to another area :) Pumo, our guide, was very courteous and informative. He made the trip worthwhile.
Keep in mind that at some of the locations, there are steps to climb, so if you have a hard time due to a heart condition or from the effects of altitude sickness, you may want to reconsider. If you do not want to climb, there are places where you can stay and still enjoy the view. At Ollantaytambo, you can also walk around the local shops for souvenirs or sit and have a light snack (at your own expense) at a local café.
Lunch is included but since the tour company partners with several other companies, you may need to stop at other restaurants to drop off some of your fellow passengers. Overall, you are given enough time to eat lunch... you can also buy souvenirs at various times throughout the tour.
Besides the Machu Picchu tour, this is one I'd highly recommend if you are in the Cusco area. You can also get the tourist ticket (which is good for almost 20+ museums/attractions and costs about $60), but you will need to figure out the transportation options if you go this route (as well as have an English guide if possible).
Everything was fine. I was a bit nervous about travelling in Peru alone but all tours with the local tour provider I took including Sacred Valley were safe and extremely interesting.
Very informative tour. Caesar was a great guide.
Great Tour with a knowledgeable guide.
Enjoyable tour and a nice mix of experiences between understanding the culture and history. The tour guide is very good and provided excellent information from hotel pickup to drop off. The food is very good at buffet at a beautiful hotel in sacred valley. The groups are small and the tour is scheduled to miss the bus tour masses.
Great tour! Guide was excellent! Not rushed....suitable for those who enjoy a slower pace! Information provided was brilliant!
I wish the tour guide spoke more about the sites during our travels to the main attractions.
The tour guide at the main attractions was great though.
This tour was amazing!
Ollantaybambo is worth the trip
This tour was a disappointment. As a tour of the Sacred Valley we were expecting the tour to be more about ruins and culture and less about shopping and eating. The tour was a full day (8 hours), but we spent slightly less than an hour at the ruins of Ollyantaytambo. The tour stopped by Pisac, which has world-renowned ruins, only to shop. We spent about 3 hours in a bus and nearly 2 hours at lunch.
It was money poorly spent.
The tour was excellent! Our tour guide Miguel was knowledgeable, happy, and interesting. Our driver was safe and professional. The entire tour exceeded our expectations and we have great memories of this particular experience. We will definitely recommend Viator to our friends visiting Peru. Thank you!
Lesley was amazing, she had a vast knowledge of everywhere we went. She was extremely helpful and the day was wonderful.
The site seeing was excellent, as well as our eventual tour guide. However, the local company Viajes Pacifico was absolutely awful. After it was an hour past their designate pick up time from our hostel, we called them and they said we would have to take a taxi to their location. Once there, we got on another tour group's bus/van (at the direction of the organizers) and the rest of the day was great. I'm giving one star because Viajes Pacifico is worthless and I want to make sure Viator knows it.
Patricia led a great tour of the Sacred Valley. It was just the two of us on the tour. She was on time to pick us up. She knew a lot of history on the Inkas and of Peru. She explained it well, in a very interesting manor. Her English was great. Highly Recommended!
Wonderful guide who made the whole experience perfect!
