Thanks for the great tour. The organising was excellent, the guide, Walter, very good! He provided enough information in a reasonable time frame. Picked up on time, no need for special effort to coordinate anything from my side
Didn't get picked up on time, about 45 minutes from arranged time and after multiple phone calls to find out that the tour had already started. joined the tour late. The transfer man lied about the starting time of the tour. Then I discovered that they had 4 names on their list and they didn't notice or care that I was missing. However the our was good and the tour guide was knowledgeable and helpful.
This was a great tour of the ruins around Cusco and the big Cathedral in the square. Our guide, Wilfredo, was very enthusiastic and informative. He was passionate when he explained the history behind the sites we saw. We met him and the rest our group (about 15 people) outside the Cathedral in the main square. Wilfredo led us around inside the Cathedral and explained so much of the history there. Then we went to Saqsaywaman where we had time to take pictures and walk around the site after Wilfredo taught us about it. Then we went to Qenqo, Tambomachay, and Puka Pukara. These three sites were smaller so we spent less time there, but I think it was all the time that we needed to see them, learn about them, and take pictures. At Qenqo we walked through a cave where the Inkas performed sacrifices which was really cool. Also, all of the sites except the Cathedral were included on the tourist ticket. So if you bought that already, you didn't have to pay to get into the sites. Just show your ticket. Overall, great day. Thank you Wilfredo!
The tourist tickets required in Cusco are a bit confusing. I purchased the 10 day ticket expecting that it would cover everything but it didn't and I still had to buy entry into some of the sites visited. The tour did not start on time as the guide was half an hour late and we waited for some other people.
The tour apart from that was excellent and tiring and the guide was excellent.
Really good tour! The guide was great at moving people along promptly so make sure we reached all locations before dark. It was a little hard to find our meeting point because the guide was a bit late, but that's my only real issue with this. We were concerned we were in the wrong place or had missed the tour.
I didn't give this tour 5 stars because we were sold to another agency. We were not contacted the night before about pick-up or anything and we had to call Viator to call the local tour operator. The tour guide we had was very excellent and he has a lot of knowledge to share. I just wish we were told earlier than we would be going with a different agency and we were contacted the night before about the pick-up time.
