A very nice visit to Cusco, surprising. We didn't expect anything and we had very nice views of the city, in addition to taking a typical shooter and a coke ceremony. Our guide AJ was very professional, spoke very good English. Frankly a very nice discovery, very pleasant.

Interesting tour, helpful and knowledgeable guide with assistants to make sure everyone was OK. Liked the idea of the mic with earphones which meant we could hear the guide even if not close to him.
