A Must Do Tour
, Jan 2020
Tour guide Jorge and his Toyota Prado vehicle were excellent. This trip is far superior in terms of convenience (8am departure instead of 4 am), and amount of walking (30 minutes on level ground instead of 2 hours up and down ), and the scenery along the alternative route travelled, especially all the llamas and alpacas seen along the way. Jorge was most helpful and patient with me asking him to stop along the way for photo shoots.

This tour was a phenomenal experience. The pictures do not do it justice and we highly recommend this trip! Jorge was on time when picking us up and he provided us with a lot of history on Peru during drive to and from the mountains. Once we arrived at the mountains, Jorge was careful to check-in with us to see who we're feeling to ensure we weren't getting altitude sickness and he let us go at our own pace. The view from all the lookout spots were absolutely amazing! It was such a surreal experience. This trip is a MUST-DO while in Cusco.

This tour is great and worth doing it. The scenery is fantastic and the travel to and from is soothing and pleasant. However, what makes this tour even greater is George, our tour guide. He make me feel welcome from the time he arrived at the hotel lobby to the end. He was pleasant and very knowledgeable. attentive and courteous. He was addressing every question and concern on high demand. This is a great tour however, I think it would have not being the greatest if it would have not been George the tour guide. A big thank you to George for making this wonderful excursion so GREAT.
stunning view and easy hike

I am so happy to go with this private tour as the other one that well known for people in other side is so much harder to hike and need to wake up in at 3 or 4 am. The view is incredible and we enjoy it the peaceful 360 degree mountain around us so much!
