Not happy with no drop off at hotel my son and i became seperated and i could not find hotel

Very hard climb i recommend a horse i was trying to do it the whole way without a horse but got one half way up

Dear, It is stated on our website that it includes pick up from the hotel (in some areas), and does not say we offer drop off at the hotel, not for this kind of reservation, because we do not do it. In fact, we have emailed you with days in advance (14 days to be exact), telling you exactly where would be your drop off. Our drop off is downtown so it is pretty easy to take a cab for a really fair price (about 6 soles). The cab drivers know Cusco very well and could help you finding your hotel, specially a really known one that is the one that you were at. We are not happy with your review because you have received the service you paid for. Take care!

Beautiful Hike

The very early morning start to this tour is very worth it once you get to the lake. The ride for the most part is on smooth road so is easy to sleep. Breakfast and Lunch was great, but be sure to bring snacks because you will sure need a refreshment once you get to the lake. The hike is challanging however doable. I havnt done any hiking in Cusco and I did it without the horses. But again if you are struggling, you get many opportunities to hire the horses all the way up the hike. Well worth it!!!

This trip is definitely worth the hike up. They picked you up on time and ensured that you knew everything before the day of the trek. We enjoyed a nice breakfast before the hike and afterwards had a wonderful lunch. I would recommend this adventure. You'll have plenty of time for picture and will be able to learn more about the history up top. Very professional tour guide!

I was picked up from my hostel at 4:45 in the AM. It was a long drive to the area and the trek was difficult. The drive going to the lake was dangerous since it's like a cliffside and you'll just wish the driver will stop yawning. Breakfast and lunch was ok. Not filling, just bring an extra snack. Our tour guide, Freddy, was very helpful. He was prepared with a portable oxygen tank and gave us a walking stick. He didn't rush us at all. He showed us better pathways to trek to the lake. Highly recommended!

Although exhausting, we had a great time exploring Humantay Lake. There was an option to rent a horse for the hike but we decided to hike on our own. The scenery is just gorgeous. The staff were all professional. The included meals were OK. Would highly recommend this tour.
