          3 Amazing Days in Cusco/Machu Picchu
          Our experience with Kantu Peru Tours was absolutely amazing! The communication when every individual was prompt and super helpful. Starting with Heidi when I booked for the wrong days. She was able to catch this based on the flight info I sent her and got it corrected for me ASAP! It was even more impressive since we booked the trip only a couple days prior. Our flight from Lima to Cusco was delayed and both Heidi and Waldir were amazing with keeping track of us and making sure we had everything we needed. They were very accommodating since we missed a part of the tour given the flight delay. Suggestion I would have is build in a full travel day before starting your adventure to account for delays. Cusco was also such a charming and interesting city, so I wish I had more time to just explore it. Evelyn came to our hotel and gave us an overview of our Machu Picchu excursion and did an amazing job of both giving us exact details (helped a lot!) and sharing some cultural insights and answering all our random questions. The entire trip to Machu Picchu was amazing. From the initial drive and getting to see more of the city, to the absolutely spectacular train ride and views (definitely upgrade to the vistadom if you can). When we arrived in Aguas Caliente we were met by someone with a sign with our name and she made sure we got to where we needed (super helpful since it was very crowded and hectic). The bus ride to Machu Picchu was also filled with breathtaking views! When we arrived we found our guide, Karol, super easy (he actually spotted us, not sure how lol) and he was an amazing guide. It’s a bit of a trek up and Karol was very patient and gave us so much good info on the way up. If you can do the extra trek up to Sungate. It’s an extra 40 min up the mountain, but the views are amazing and you get more time on the actual Inca Trail. Karol was also the absolute best photographer and captured the best memories for us. Those pics were worth the price alone! We were again greeted by our driver, Eddie, and it was another great drive back to the hotel in Cusco. The stars were out in full force, so the drive home was another great part of the trip. Eddie was also a great sport helping us with our Spanish and answering all our random questions. The last morning of our trip Waldir came personally to our hotel to escort us with the driver to the airport. He was so helpful throughout and just gave us a sense of ease. All we were focused on was having a great time and they did the rest in the most professional and helpful manner! I will definitely be back to Peru and will use Kantu for all our adventures 😊

          David is a gem!
          David was absolutely incredible! His boundless energy and infectious positivity were truly remarkable. He kept me motivated and encouraged throughout the hike, and just when I was feeling discouraged by the long lines, he managed to capture amazing pictures. The tour was very well organized. Note: the trip begins early and includes a somewhat lengthy road trip, so prepare accordingly.

          Magical Peru
          If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!! The service from start to finish made my trip such a magical experience. From day 1, Waldir was on top of everything and provided internaries for each day which put my mind at ease (especially with my last minute flight delay)! All the tour guides were fantastic and knowledgeable and the drivers were exceptional in their driving skills. I would definitely use Kantu again and recommend it to everyone! Ankita from Canada

          Amazing trip!
          Thank you Viator and Kantu tours for taking care of us while we were in Cusco. They were so kind to us during our stay in Cusco. Our tour representative Waldir ensured that we were picked up daily on-time and answered all our questions promptly. We enjoyed our stay in Cusco city/Machu Phichu/Sacred Valley and we are taking back all the memories that we have spent here.

          An experience if a lifetime
          My tour guide David was amazing. I had a really hard time with the altitude and he was there the whole time encouraging me while offering me coca leaves, candies and tea as well as some scents to get me up to the summit. Our driver was great as well. He drove with safety in mind.. he was not rushing , drove within the speed limit and pass other vehicles in a safe way. I can’t stand drivers who show off and he definitely 💯 drives with safety in mind.

          Rainbow mountain is a beautiful and unique experience. The company has everything well thought including breakfast and lunch. They provide with knowledgeable tour guides, we had the opportunity to trek with Wilmar and Freddy, super friendly and attentive guides. I would recommend this company and both guides to anyone interested on doing this unique experience.

          Great Humantay hiking tour experience with guide Oscar and driver Wilson!
          Our day trip to Humantay Lake with guide Oscar and driver Wilson was amazing! Oscar let us know the history of our views as well as performed an Inca ceremony for us. He is charismatic and fun and everytime he said “muchachas” we knew we were about to find out something interesting about the lovely Peruvian people, land and history. Wilson made the daunting drive to our humantay hike starting point very safe and comfortable. Ten minutes in and I forgot I was in a van at the edge of a mountain. The included breakfast and lunch buffet is tasty and nourishing. Try to drink their coco tea at breakfast. I didnt and got altitude sickness but there are plenty mules to ride for a fee. There is also coco tea at hiking starting point but it is not included. The view at Humantay is beautiful and worth it and Oscar made sure to get all of our photos at a picturesque spot. I was also the slowest in the group and Oscar stayed with me and I didn’t feel excluded or like a burden at all. The only downside is they do not do drop off at your stay, it is in city square and after the hike you wish that could be an option but it’s very small inconvenience compared to experience! I recommend this tour for beginners and experienced hikers alike! You will have a great time with Oscar and Wilson!

          A most special day trip to Humantay Laguna!
          I had the best day! Our guide, Oscar, was fantastic. He kept the group well informed and shared a lot of knowledge with us throughout the day. He also advised on the route up the mountain, which I was very pleased about. I made an informed choice to take the horse ride up. Oscar was also great at helpfully taking photos and videos for the group. I would also like to mention that our driver was great. He was very safe and clearly experienced at driving this route. Thank you !

        We did the private full day tour with Kantu tours and it was so well organized, we were amazed ourselves. The day starts with a pickup at your hotel in a very comfortable car that drops you off at Ollantaytambo train station, you then board the train and get to Aguas Calientes. Here you meet your guide who accompanies you to Machu pichu.
        The name of our guide was Elvis, who was incredible and patient. It was a very cloudy and rainy day and when we got to the top, we could barely see any ruins from there and he offered to wait with us until it cleared. Our driver Gerard was also very sweet. Highly recommend this tour company.

        This day trip to Machu Picchu from Cusco was very well organized with Kantu Peru Tours, we were picked up on time and our itinerary was clearly explained to us beforehand. When we arrived to Machu Picchu Pueblo, we met our tour guide Harol, and from there we had a great time exploring Machu Picchu and learning the history of the site. The included lunch was also delicious. Overall it was a smooth day and we were so excited to be able to see Machu Picchu, definitely recommend.

        My only note for the company is that the ride on Peru Rail was uncomfortable, they played very loud music and there isn’t a lot of leg room in the seats. Also, our tour guide could have taken more care to take some good photos, he went very quickly, but I understand he is not a photographer.

        Thanks!

        Its definitely worth it to pay for the tour. Someone picked us up from our hotel- on time- and drove us to the train station. Once we got off the train someone was there waiting for us with a sign and got us on the bus and right through ticketing to start the tour. Our guide, I believe his name was Alex, was very knowledgeable about Machu Picchu. The only thing that was lacking was we thought we'd get some better photographs from our guide. Sometimes we thought he was taking pictures then later we found it wasn't on our phone. Anyways, aside from not getting great pictures the tour was perfect (they aren't photographers so I can't hold it against them). The hike up was a bit rough but once you get to the top it's pretty easy going. Lunch was pretty good. Great service. The chips and guac was delicious but the chicken was just alright. Frozen drinks were fantastic after a long tour outside. We paid for the vistadome train. We enjoyed it but if you're trying to cut corners I'm sure the regular train also has great views as besides smaller windows in the ceiling they were about the same. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to someone else! Also, if you get motion sick I highly recommend you take some motion sick meds prior to the drive- its pretty curvy. Alex was a great guide so I would recommend him as well.

        First of all, the tour arrangement was done very smoothly by Waldir from Kantu Tours. The correspondence was easy and he was very responsive. He suggested the 2 days tour that included Sacred Valley - I was glad we took this tour as both days were amazing. The tour provided us with all the necessary tickets printed and in order for easy use. Everything was well organised - there was always someone to pick us up so I didn't have to worry finding transport or getting lost.

        For Machu Picchu tour itself, it was fantastic. The tour guide, Ederth was very patient. He didn't rush us at any point of time even when we wanted to wait at the viewing point for the fog to clear so we could get a nice picture of Machu Picchu. Instead, he told us a lot of stories while we waited. He also helped us to take a lot of good pictures. We ended up spending almost 4 hours at Machu Picchu which was really worth the time!!

        Overall the whole tour was amazing. It saved us a lot of trouble of arranging our own trip. Will definitely recommend Kantu Tours if you're planning to visit Machu Picchu! :)

        Highly recommend this tour! Everyone was extremely nice, on time AND we felt really cared for the entire day. We chose the 8 am pickup time for context.There were a lot of small touches that really made the whole day seamless like our itinerary, and tickets for the moving pieces — everything was well thought out and incredibly convenient. Our driver who picked us up and dropped us off was so kind and a safe driver. Lunch was delicious - we got a main and dessert and the restaurant was stellar.

        Our tour guide, Karol, was spectacular. Extremely passionate, knowledgeable and engaging our entire tour throughout Machu Picchu. We learned so much from him! It was also just a really special experience to not have a big group and go at our own pace throughout the site.

        I cannot thank the Kantu Peru tours team enough. Everyone was helpful, kind, responsive, and amazing for this once in a lifetime and unforgettable experience. I seriously recommend anyone visiting Machu Picchu to book this tour!!

        From the driver to our guide these people are first class. Driver was prompt and took us to the train station as rapidly as possible. We were met by another guide who sheparded us through the station and onto the train. Our guide in Machu Picu was extremely well informed about its history and that of the Inca people. Overall--a great experience that I would recommend to anyone.

        Our visit to Machu Picchu has been one of the highlights of our trip to Peru and we have to thank Kantu Pery Tours for organizing it and taking such good care of us. We had a small misunderstanding with our reservation but Christian has efficiently and promptly fixed it up so that it could go smoothly according to the plan.
        Everything was according to the schedule and the professionals who attended us were corteous and well-mannered. The highest point was certainly Rebeca, who guided us through the sanctuary sharing reliable information, in a calm pace, giving us time to soak in the atmosphere. Our special thanks go to Christian and Rebeca, who really went above and beyond!

        Everything has gone great for us. The agency was always very communicative about all my doubts, they gave us all the details of everything that was going to happen before starting the tours. The guide that accompanied us knew very well all the history of the archaeological sites and on top of that he took very good photos of us. We had a small problem with the train due to the rain, but the agency handled everything very professionally and left us calm and assured that our tour was guaranteed. I recommend this agency to everyone.
