    Amazing Experience Led by Bernardo
    Seliah_S
    , Jun 2022
    What an amazing experience led by our wonderful guide Bernardo. We were fortunate enough to be the only 3 along for the adventure. Bernardo was organized and had an amazing amount of history and relevant information about Peru/Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu. I’ve taken several similar tours and can say the most important thing when choosing is a reliable and easy going guide……Bernardo was truly the best. The whole experience exceeded our expectations and was worth every cent.

    Great experience with awesome guides Michael and Bernardo!

    , Jun 2022
    We had a great trip with Michael (1st day) and Bernardo (2nd day). It was just us in the van, so it felt like a private tour! On the way to the train station, we stopped at a llama/alpaca reserve (very informative stop), key scenic stops along the drive (very important!), also a shop selling local gems, metals, & handcrafts (less interesting), and Ollantaytambo (worth the hike up!). The Vistadome train up to Agua Calientes was ok, all the administration (tickets etc) was settled by them, so no hassle for us. On Day 2 the main goal was Machu Picchu and Bernardo brought us all the way up. He shared with us its recent history & the expedition that led to its discovery, and was also very patient and helpful with our photo-taking requests once at Machu Pichhu. (not easy as it can get very crowded!) On a whole, Michael & Bernardo are very knowledgeable about the history, culture, and local practices, we had a great time and would highly recommend them to others for a tour in Cusco and up to Machu Picchu!

    First and foremost, I have to give thanks to our tour guide, Bernardo, who was phenomenal. He went beyond in making sure the group was taken care of. He was knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and respectful. I highly recommend him. Overall, I am thankful for the amazing experience and the excellent service the tour company has provided. Best experience!! Thank you!

    Tour guides were amazing. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Would recommend this tour to anyone who visits Peru. Macchu Picchu is truly a world wonder but Pisac and Ollantanmbo are spectacular as well. Stop at llama farm is fun. Hotel in Aguas Calientes is good. Only complaint is the lunch buffet is not great and Peruvian roads can be bumpy so be prepared. Driver is excellent though.

    Wow! Everything was so perfect from start to finish. All the details were carefully organized and I was able to relax and enjoy. Our guide, Fabrizio, was AMAZING! He’s so knowledgeable, friendly, thoughtful and thorough. I gained a much deeper understanding of the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu because of him. Our driver, Roman (I hope I remembered that right) was also excellent, offering a smooth ride on challenging roads. I highly recommend this tour. Absolutely amazing experience!!!

    Caring and reliable tour agency makes for an amazing experience

    Fabrizio really made this tour amazing. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable but he works really hard to make sure we are all having a good time. Furthermore, we were in Peru during a difficult time - when there was a lot of striking. This agency - thank you to Frank - accommodated moving our booking 1 day early to avoid striking to get to Macchu Picchu. Once we arrived to the town, the strike started and no one could get out. They worked SO HARD to build a plan to get us out which lead to Fabrizio taking us on a 3 hour hike through the train tracks to get back to Cusco. Honestly, just overall amazing support and communication on all sized. Super duper kudos to Fabrizio and Frank for their incredible support during an unstable time. If you book this tour - you will be in VERY good and safe hands.

    We had an unbelievable experience with Machu Picchu Latin America through Viator. Our tour guide Michael was incredibly knowledgeable and provided information on culture, language, history, and so much more. Our tour of the Sacred Valley included Ollantaytambo, a petroglyph and sacred site that had been hidden by locals, Manos de la Comunidad (an animal rescue, alpaca and llama farm, artifacts rescue/museum and shop) providing indigenous women jobs, as well as a beautiful jewelry shop created by a coop of local artisans. We also experienced Machu Picchu early before all the crowds got there. An absolutely fabulous experience!

    DO NOT TAKE THE TOUR WITH MICHAEL
    Andrew_L
    , May 2022
    DO NOT TAKE THIS TOUR WITH MICHAEL. He does not teach history. The itinerary is awesome but when we go to these super cool historic sites like Ollyantaytambo instead of teaching us the fascinating history, he'd rather spread conspiracy theories about aliens building the sites with lasers. I didn't pay that much money to teach myself the history from reading online after learning nothing at the actual sites.
    icon Response from Host , May 2022
    Dear Andrew, Thank you for sharing your feedback, we hold our tour guides at a hight standard. With the above mentioned by yourself and experience on your past tour, a simple misunderstanding arose. The tour guide (Michael) is the best in the business and is always requested for our tours. Thank you for your valued feedback, this helps us improve and stay very competitive in the industry. If we can further assist you on this matter, please contact us. Thank you again for choosing us. Sincerely yours

    This journey has exceeded our expectations, we had the most amazing and memorable experience, that to our tour guide Gary and his crew made it even better. He shared his knowledge and made this trip an unforgettable one. Peru is a place that preserves it's culture, customs and traditions, and the people we met were so humble and loving. We feel so blessed to have had this opportunity to live and embrace every moment there. Thanks so much for facilitating and providing us with excellent service, we shall plan to revisit and recommend your services.

    My husband and I completed this tour from Cusco in April 2022. If you’re looking for a knowledgeable tour guides, with an overview of the Sacred valley and trip to Machu Picchu, look no further. These guys were professional, fun and passionate about their culture. We had Michael and Bernardo as tour guides, who both had fountain of knowledge about the history and nature surrounding us. The arrangements were also professional with quick responses. We had to arrange a different pick up since we were in Urubamba and they accommodated us without any hassle. I’d highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to learn about Peru, Cusco and experience the fantastic Sacred Valley as well as the magical Machu Picchu.

    Our trip to Machu Picchu would not have been as amazing without the excitement and enthusiasm from our tour guide Michael. He had a wealth of knowledge about the archaeological sites and each component of the trip was well-planned. He also made sure we had to best experience by staying ahead of the crowds. I would highly recommend this tour company to anyone considering visiting Machu Picchu. The communication and logistics were great throughout our 2 days.
