What people are saying about Ollantaytambo

Aside from feeing like I was on the brink of death from Vinicanca, it was so beautiful ! We found out night before our tour there was a fire near Humantay so they needed to reschedule us for a new activity. Sad and disheartening but they were keeping us safe. We ended up being the only people with our guide from Machu Picchu. Broli was so great, informative, supportive since I wasn’t well, and great to talk with to exchange conversation about our countries and love of travel. I was too I’ll for the food but heard it was great and the location was just gorgeous. The taxis, train tickets, and hotels were all very nice and was great to have the confidence in GYG to relax about those types of details. Thank you Broli! Gracias!

This was an amazing experience! Our guide, Carlos, was excellent and looked after us from start to finish. He took us to other spots throughout the trek and took the time to chat through the history and general knowledge of the different areas. The Accomodation and food was great throughout also. We trekked a special route for Haku Travel and it was beautiful and made the 2nd day. The trekking is that good it’s easy to forget about the activities but they were also excellent. 10/10 and I would definitely recommend. Our group was small also so it felt like we got a much more personal experience than what we would’ve got with another tour provider.

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.

Broly, our tour guide was amazing. He was patient and answered all of our questions. He is very educated on the history of Machu Picchu and the Rainbow Mountain. He is friendly and made our time very special that we will never forget. Thanks!

Great experience. Good pickup, the guide was very knowledgeable
