Excelentes guias e passeios ! Guia Richard super divertido ! E marco super bacana também… A minha única ressalva seria para as refeições, café e almoço , pois a comida é local e poderiam ter opções mais diversificadas ou opções apenas dos passeios sem incluir as refeições

Me contacté con la agencia por recomendación de una amistad y fue Jose Luis quien me atendió. Fue muy paciente y preciso al explicarme sobre el tour que deseaba. Durante mi visita a Machu Picchu tuve como guía a Eduardo quien fue muy paciente al tomarme fotos de diferentes lugares. Así mismo, su explicación sobre la historia del lugar fue muy certera. 100% recomendado.
