We were picked up promptly in a nice van (which we had to ourselves), and our guide Luis put us at ease immediately and made sure we had everything we needed before we left our hotel for the day. While doing everything, from seeing how baby alpaca garments were made and exploring the stunning Moray terraces to walking around the engineering marvels of Ollantaytambo and Salineras de Maras, Luis was very patient with us low-landers (given the high altitude) and very knowledgeable about every subject (including history, birds, and photography) even not directly related to the places and things we saw, which added extra value to the trip. He had a great attitude throughout, and even if we hadn't been enjoying the trip and the things we were seeing (which we very much were), we would have been able to get through it with his infectious good attitude. Luis also gave us some great restaurant recommendations for dinner when we returned to Cusco, which we enjoyed and ended up going to several nights during the rest of our stay in Cusco. We hope to be back in Cusco and the Sacred Valley with Luis and exploor in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone visiting the Cusco area.

My friend and I had a great time on this tour. It was filled with incredible views and we learned a lot along the way. Exploor was really accommodating and picked us right up from our hostel. Carlos was a very knowledgeable guide and answered all the questions we had! He even helped us set up a COVID test for our next travels! I would definitely recommend to anyone!

We went on an amazing tour with "Grisita", Cusco's absolute best guide. She is knowledgeable, funny, empathic, helpful and a delight to be around. Our driver Hirwin, probably knows every road in the region from the smallest dirt road to the large main roads. He drives safely and smoothly. My dad and I were the only two people on this tour, and Gris and Hirwin made us feel like VIPs. We recommend anyone coming to Cusco to use them for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

We had such a great day on this tour. Having a great guide really makes a difference. Luis was not only very knowledgeable about the history of the sites but also very genuine and funny. We felt so comfortable with him as if it were not the first time meeting. I highly suggest this tour.

This tour company is a scam. Highly unprofessional. Wasted our whole day here in cusco. We got up early for pur tour of sacred valley and waited amd waited for them. Called them over a dozen times…no response. Our hotel concierge called them numerous times as well. More than the money…they wasted our day in Cusco. Do not boom from Exploor Peru…

Dear Akash and family Jain. We're very sorry for the unfortunate circumstance you have experienced and we understand that you're upset! As we previously told you, we did not receive any reservation notification from the platform you've used and thus, were unable to register, coordinate, and confirm you your reservation. Of course, this should not happen but does not depend on us. Our emergency number, which is available 24/7, is only shared with registered and confirmed clients to help in whatever comes up. Due to that we were unable to answer your calls made to our sales phone which is available from 8.30am - 9pm. We hope the best for your remaining time in Peru and please stay safe and health.

Gris was a very prepared tour guide, she carried books and notes in her bag to show us pictures while she explained historical facts of the attractions. And she gave us a lot of opportunities to interact with the local community and experience the food/drink/lifestyle they have.
Later when we had another tour with another company, I had a realization of how accurate and detailed Gris has studied about the attractions and their history in comparison to other tour guides that were also decent. She was exceptional. I highly recommend taking a scared valley tour with Gris, as she seems like someone who is truly passionate about her job and the community around it.

So great to hear about your time in the Sacred Valley with Gris, we appreciate your feedback! Gris and all our other guides are different from the majority, especially because of their passion about what they do. Also the interaction with locals and their culture is super important, to experience Peru as it was and is. A different experience far from the others. Now, with all that knowledge, you're fully prepared to discover Machu Picchu. Enjoy your time in Peru and thank you for making us part of it!

We had such a great experience with Exploor. The great live chat function (via their website) was excellent in making sure we were booking the tour we wanted with all out questions answered promptly via chat/email. The staff was wonderful. We did our tour with Carlos and Freddy. Freddy made us feel very safe during the long drives which were very twisty turvy and on cliffs. He is an excellent driver. Carlos did a wonderful job explaining the history behind each historic site and allowing us sufficient time at each site. The whole experience was so wonderful. The drive was broken up well in between the sites so it never felt too long in the car.

One thing I would change/suggest is to not include lunch and instead do lunch stop in Ollantayambo itself because it is such a nice, historic town and it would have been nice to have been able to spend more time there and have lunch earlier. By the time we had lunch it was late into the afternoon and we were starving. This would also allow people eat at any of the many restaurants that were available in the town instead of the included buffet lunch restaurant we stopped at, which was mediocre (& not very many options for anyone with dietary restrictions).

We had a small group and it was very clean/safe in the car and most people wore masks even at the tourist sites. The sites themselves were worth seeing. All would be easy for anyone to walk, except the sacred temple at Ollantayambo, which requires many steps, and would recommend being at least moderate fitness/hike level for that one. Especially when it is very hot outside as there is no shade/trees.

We really enjoyed this trip. It’s more expensive than other options but it allowed us to see more because of the small group. In addition to the sites, we also visited cultural stops that were interesting and fun. The stop at the Chicheria was especially great!
