Fantastic tour. The guide was very informative, and because we arrived at the sites early there were very few people there.

Great tour! It was slower paced that the guide was more than happy to take pictures for me--a great way to see the site as a solo traveler!

From pick-up to drop-off the tour was exactly as described and timed (practically to the minute). Felt like a private tour (two of us and three other people) in our own tour van with driver and guide. Guide was informative, able to answer all the questions - good English. Qenqo, Tambomachay, and Pucca Pucara were very interesting, but the highlight - walking beside the massive stone walls of Sacsayhuaman fortress. Of the tours we did in Cusco, this was the most interesting and the best.

Wonderful experience. So much to learn and see. The entire area is beautiful. Be ready to do some climbing...it will prepare you for Macchu Picchu.

The tour bus and guide promptly showed up at our hotel. The tour took us to 4 closeby Inka ruins on the hill side. One of us had to pace slowly at one of the sites due to the high altitude but it was worth seeing the sites with a tour guide.

There were just 3 in our tour and that was fine with me as we got the attention of our guide, Vicente Fuentes. Nice, funny man.

Sacsayhuaman is a beautiful archeological zone in Cusco. It's amazing to walk through the park and wonder just how it was built. There are stones over 12 feet tall and magnificent patterns of religious Inca animals throughout. We were in a group of three people so it was great to have a more personalized experience with the guide! The guide was funny and knowledgeable as well!

My flight was not until the early evening, so this is a good half-day tour if you want to stay near the Cusco area. I'd recommend not going during the rainy season since there are rocks/steps to climb, which can be slippery and challenging. It's about a 3 hour tour, but since I was the only person that day, maybe it was faster. The guide was very informative and willing to take her time to show and explain the areas to me.

Towards the end of the tour, you will stop at a textile shop where they will show you the different types of alpaca vs. wool/synthetics. The prices are decent but there are so many other shops around, so depending on the quality of textiles you want to purchase, don't feel this is your only option. The high quality textiles are found at the Kuna stores, but you will also pay a much higher price for the better quality.

Overall, try to go during the non-rainy season. Your pictures and experience will probably be better.

This was a great experience for me while I traveled alone for a couple of days. I thought the guide was very passionate about the history behind the Inca people and was very informative. The tour bus was on-time and well worth the money to see all the archeological parks in the Cusco area. I would recommend this tour.
