The guide was very knowledgeable about the site. She took her time showing each section of the city.

Our tour guide Jaime was fantastic! The day we booked was rainy and he was able to delay our trip from 6am to 8:30 and it made a world of a difference. He took us to the best viewing and photo spots and was kind enough to take pictures of us as well. I would definitely recommend the guide was so knowledgable and informative.
Machu Picchu!

We had a great tour guide Marco! One of the best days of our lives being able to see Machu Picchu with a private guide who was very knowledgeable and knew the perfect places to get our photos taken for great memories of our experience. We hope you get Marco when you book this tour!

Our guide Benny was incredible! You get to see so much of the country side and her customer service was amazing! She took us all over the place to all sorts of ruins and the horses were so well taken care of and were so easy to ride! This is a must if you come to Cusco!

Wilber, our tour guide, truly made this day one of the best of my life. He met us briefly at our hotel the night before to welcome us, give us our tickets, and explain the next day. He brought us all through the ancient city, avoiding crowds so it felt like we had the place to ourselves. He educated us almost nonstop for the two hours and I didn’t find one piece of it uninteresting. He left us with options of how to spend the rest of the day at Machu Picchu, and we didn’t feel rushed at any point. Can’t thank him enough!!

Fantastic! Loved our trip and our guide was great! Met with us the night before to answer questions, check to see if we had our passports, confirm our time to enter MP, etc. Met us at 5:15 am and got our trip started--its confusing for first-timers so having our guide with us made it so much easier! Her knowledge was excellent and we loved the tour--just breathtaking! She gave us lots of time for pictures and rest if we needed. We took a bit different path so we avoided the backlogs of tourists, and our early entry kept the hordes out of our photos!
Would always recommend this tour!

This was the perfect way to see the site in the short time we had...less than a day! We were blessed with our amazing guide, Marco, who met us when we arrived at our hotel the night 10pm with no issues! He greeted us bright and early the next morning and made everything so smooth. Also, he was so passionate about explaining everything to us along the tour and made it very educational, but also fun and exciting! Our group was SO happy we went with this option instead of trying to wing it on our included our entrance fees, our bus rides, and our amazing guided tour! I would always recommend doing this tour!

Nellie met us the night before our tour at the train station in the pouring rain. Gave us our tickets and told us where to meet the next morning. We had perfect weather the next morning for the Solstice. Nellie was very well informed and made the ruins we were seeing become even more fascinating. I highly recommend Nellie and this tour.
Great tour
