Tour Description

The one-day tour to the popular Humantay Lagoon in Cusco, Peru, is an impressive trekking adventure for nature lovers and mountain tourism enthusiasts. Along the way, you can enjoy unparalleled views of exotic mountains, fantastic valleys, and waterfalls.

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.
