Nice little, short trip outside of Cusco.

Our time with Yuber and driver Jimmy was incredible. The entire process was professional and courteous. Yuber is brilliant - his knowledge of Cusco, the Quechua people and Incan history was endless. This was just the tour we desired in order to learn more about the Inca Ruins around the city of Cusco. If you love history, archaeology and architecture this tour is for you!! A great supplement to our time at Machu Picchu.

We had a wonderful experience with out tour guide, Marinés. She was personable, well-informed, interesting and spoke English very well. She arrived on time and took us to the four Inca sights located outside of Cusco. I would definitely recommend her as a guide and recommend Viator.

Fantastic tour. The guide was very informative, and because we arrived at the sites early there were very few people there.

Great tour! It was slower paced that the guide was more than happy to take pictures for me--a great way to see the site as a solo traveler!

From pick-up to drop-off the tour was exactly as described and timed (practically to the minute). Felt like a private tour (two of us and three other people) in our own tour van with driver and guide. Guide was informative, able to answer all the questions - good English. Qenqo, Tambomachay, and Pucca Pucara were very interesting, but the highlight - walking beside the massive stone walls of Sacsayhuaman fortress. Of the tours we did in Cusco, this was the most interesting and the best.

Wonderful experience. So much to learn and see. The entire area is beautiful. Be ready to do some will prepare you for Macchu Picchu.

The tour bus and guide promptly showed up at our hotel. The tour took us to 4 closeby Inka ruins on the hill side. One of us had to pace slowly at one of the sites due to the high altitude but it was worth seeing the sites with a tour guide.

There were just 3 in our tour and that was fine with me as we got the attention of our guide, Vicente Fuentes. Nice, funny man.

Sacsayhuaman is a beautiful archeological zone in Cusco. It's amazing to walk through the park and wonder just how it was built. There are stones over 12 feet tall and magnificent patterns of religious Inca animals throughout. We were in a group of three people so it was great to have a more personalized experience with the guide! The guide was funny and knowledgeable as well!

Hotel pickup was prompt, and Robinson was a wonderful tour guide. He did a great job explaining the significance and history of the sites. The only thing I would change is the visit to the alpaca wool factory. I learned how to spot Alpaca wool, but did not appreciate the hard sell tactics of the folks there. It would have been great to be able to opt out of the final part of the tour.
