What people are saying about Ollantaytambo

Highly recommend this tour for sacred valley. The tour was well organized from the start to finish. Pick-up location, timing, tour plans and drop-off were well communicated. Lunch was good. Our tour guide - Mijael was very knowledgeable, fluent in English and friendly. The roads to moray and maras salt mine wasn't paved and was bumpy. However, the van organized was so comfortable and suspension was good. My husband has a bad back and he had no problems after the whole day tour.

Excellent day trip to the Sacred Valley! I particularly picked this tour because I only had a day and wanted to see as many places as I could. Our guide was amazing and explained Incas' history and culture well to us. Itinerary was well-organized and lunch buffet in Urubamba was delicious with many options! I also met some of the kindest ladies during this tour. Instead of returning to Cusco with the group, we stayed at Ollantaytambo.

Really great. We were received at our hotel as agreed. The guide Romolo took the time to show us the different sites. He was truly exceptional and took the time to answer all of our questions. He spoke very good English. We really recommend this activity you will not be disappointed!

perfect tour for those who in a short time want to see some of the most famous places in the Cusco area.

Great experience. Good pickup, the guide was very knowledgeable
