Best trip we did, and worth every penny. Word of warning, the description is wrong on the timing. It takes about 1hr 40 to get to base camp... The entire activity is NOT five hours (you'll be gone from 8 am-5pm) which gave me a heart attack because we planned it on the day we were flying out and expected to be back at 1 p.m. but our guide got us a car to return to Cusco to make sure we got to the airport on time. Best tour we had during our time in Peru, hands down!

Our day to Machu Picchu was cancelled because of the strike so we did not have tickets into the park 3 days later when the strike ended. Everyone told us we were screwed but I went online and found these tixs. I was worried they weren’t legit but they worked! Highly recommend these guys for last minute tix to Machu Picchu. Saved our trip!

The tour and guide Ed were very good. The red valley tour should not really be more than 7-10$, its just a half hour walf from the Rainbow mountain.

Had the best experience on this tour. Ronald made it a great experience and took some amazing pictures.

An amazing experience with incredible guides! Highly recommended
