Sacred Valley, Pisac and Ollantaytambo Full-Day Tour from Cusco

Cusco, Peru

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Tour was very disorganized at the beginning. They told us we would be picked up at our hotel at 7:15am as we were the furthest away, but we were actually the closest to the meeting point for their buses. They did not pick us up until 8am, so we were very annoyed that we woke up 45 minutes early for no reason. The tour is of Sacred Valley Urubamba Valley which includes Pisac and Ollantaytambo. Our guide was good, but did not ever smile and was not very friendly. There is a lot of time sitting on the bus as you have to travel to the valley. I wish we had more time in Pisac to be able to walk to the Temple of the Moon. Ollantaytambo was magnificent, but I also wished we had some more time to walk around and explore. We also stopped at the Pisac Market obligatory commercial stop at a jewelry store which they disguised as a bathroom break and had time for shopping. We also stopped for lunch at a hotel in the valley buffet lunch, which was excellent. Our guide also made an extra stop at Chinchero by request make sure you request this as the views to here are magnificent during the rainy season to see locals make the alpaca stuff we felt bad for not buying much there, but the quality of their stuff did not feel as nice as in stores such as Sol Kuna. They returned us to our hotel last stop at around 5:45pm.

My Review

The starting point of this tour was just around the corner from our hotel. The tour actually started at 1:30pm and not 1pm as stated on Viator and ran for 4.5 hours and not 3.5 hours as stated on Viator. It was very rushed at the beginning as they herded as like cows into the cathedral, so we didnt have many photo opportunities up front. Our guide, Clara, was fantastic and very funny!

Athens Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

My Review

This tour was a huge disappointment especially after our 4-day Classical Greece tour was so wonderful. The city tour on the bus was a joke ... it was like speed drive-by-sightseeing and you could barely see the stuff. The stop at the Olympic Stadium was short and pointless. Going through the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum was a mess! There were 50-60 people in our tour group. We felt like we were herded like cows and you could barely hear half of what the tour guide was seeing. It was a complete zoo! Would not recommend this tour to anyone, but do their 4-day Classical Greece tour!

My Review

Wow, what a memorable experience ... one of the highlights of our trip to Greece! Irene was one of the best tour guides we have ever had ... so knowledgable and friendly. Definitely go with her recommendations for food, especially in Kalambaka. The bus ride was comfortable and the hotels were nice too. Only wish we had more time in Nafplion. Also wish they didn't shorten the trip so it excludes Sparta, but otherwise I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Greece.
