Charly was amazing! He took us to beautiful parts of the city we would never have seen if he didn’t show them to us. The pisco sour lesson was so much fun! We actually made our drink and boy is it worth the money after you have to shake it for a minute! Our dinner was a traditional chicken dinner that was delicious! Charly was great company and made the time fly by. We would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Cusco. Do it on your first day to get the lay of the land!

Our Peru trip was physically challenging and action-packed, and I am so glad that I booked this one relaxing activity to close out the vacation! Our instructor was very knowledgeable and welcoming. We really enjoyed learning more about Peruvian culture, especially in regards to cacao and chocolate-making. You might think that a 2 hour workshop on chocolate could get boring, but definitely not. It was chill but fun.

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.

Great fun and loads laughs and very interesting and informative
