The trip of a lifetime! My best friend and I chose this tour to celebrate our 30th Birthdays - it was Amazing!!! We had a really nice time visiting Cusco, Machu Picchu and going to the Rainbow Mountain. The tour guides were really nice and we told us a lot about everything. We visited in November and for Machu Picchu this was amazing - it was misty in the morning and sunny by mid-morning, so we got to see it with all weather types. Highly recommend going at 6am and spending most of the day there - circuit 2 and 4 were great! We even hiked up one of the mountains. Carlos, Judy, and Wilson were great and really educated us about each site.

Great way to experience Peru The tour was a great way to experience Cusco, the sacred valley, Machu Picchu and the Vinicunca mountain. We only had 4 full days, and it was the right amount of time. I was there with my best friend celebrating our 30th, so we will always cherish this moment. The tour guides (Carlos, Judy, and Wilson) were very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped us get immersed to the history of the Incas, and made us feel comfortable throughout the trip. The accommodation provided as part of the package was very adequate, and the overall experience was great.

For its construction was used material from the Convent of San Agustin, currently the Marriot Hotel, which was destroyed by cannon fire by order of Marshal Agustin Gamarra.

From this place we will walk down to the Ejército Avenue Bridge that already existed in Inca times being part of the road that linked the capital of the empire with the Contisuyo in 1934 celebrating the four hundred years of the Spanish founding of the city, the bridge was rebuilt with a neocolonial style.

This artist was one of the best in terms of traditional imagery; his art, with elongated collars inspired by llamas and alpacas, is unmistakable and recognized worldwide.

It is said that the long necks were used to hide inside rolled canvases that were sent to Europe; although it is only a rumor. His religious works are impregnated with the daily life of the people of Cusco; you can see chicha sellers in religious scenes.
