          Great Peru experiences
          Very well organized. You get information daily about the incoming day with time schedule. Sometimes the day is so packed that you have to squeese times for eatung and drinking into the schedule. Take high altitude sickness seriously!!

          Terrible tour company. No itineraries leading up to trip and lost my suitcase.
          Please do not go with this tour company. Even if it’s last minute. I regret going with this company. The guide was fine and very nice but his English was not the best and he did not know much about touring Machu Picchu. I paid to hike Montana mountain and even telling the guide that’s all I wanted to do. He said I could do it in the afternoon after the tour of Machu Picchu with the rest of the group. This did not happen because you cannot hike the mountain after 10 AM. So, even though I paid to hike Montana mountain at Machu Picchu, I did not do that, the company did not reimburse me for the money I paid. They do not provide water along the tour and you have to buy it the whole time and the food was very small and not a lot of options. Getting tickets to Machu Picchu as well as train tickets and bus ride back to Cusco was also very confusing and not very helpful from the guide or the people at the office. The worst part was the woman, Katia, at the office. She was not helpful at all leading up to the trip. She did not provide an itinerary about the trip and what was online was not what we did. She said she was going to email me an itinerary and she never did, as well as addressing the concerns. I had the night before the trip. This company also lost my suitcase even though they said I could keep it at their office while doing the tour. Katia also tricked me about my suitcase when she said it was not at the office and asked me to identify the items in the bag. I thought she was using those items to identify the bag. I even wrote my name and phone number on the bag but the company still let somebody else walk off with it. When they admitted to losing my bag Katia said that I will only be replaced for the items I wrote down to identify it. I felt tricked, I did not feel welcomed, and I felt every question I asked was bothering this woman. Another girl on my tour had done many tours in South America and she said this was definitely the worst one. The trip itself was fun and we did a lot of cool things but the company treats you like they don’t care about you. I even tipped the tour guide, and when I told him I could not hike Montana mountain he acted like it was my fault. please do not give your money to this tour company, they do not run a quality business.

          The tour guide was very helpful in explaining us the history and assisting us with oxygen. He also pointed to us the good spots for pictures, which helped me avoid the line everyone was waiting.

          Super Worthwhile
          I thought waking up super early for the pickup was something I was going to regret but our tour guide Wally or as he prefers to be called Always Positive Wally made our day. After taking us to breakfast, we were ready for the long hike up to Lake Humantay. It’s definitely something that anyone who visits Cusco should go do. Definitely try and get Wally as he’s fun, knowledgeable and will help make sure you get there, whether it be getting picked up, or assisting on the hike up or down, or introducing you to someone new or to parts about the culture, it was definitely worth it!

          Amazing experience!
          Our tour was amazing, breakfast and lunch was at a really cute lodge. Our hike was also fantastic, all options of walking, horses, or motorbikes were laid out for us and we were encouraged to do whatever we wanted. Most of the group ended up taking a mode of transport but we wanted to walk it up, and our guide Wallie helped us up and encouraged us the entire way. 10/10 would recommend this tour.

          Memorable day great nature views
          The trip went smooth, the pick up was on time and the guide Nilton is friendly and entertainting, the driver Edwin has an excellent driving skills on these tiny roads that lead to the mountain. The breakfast and lunch were tasty and diverse. The only thing to be aware before booking is that the road is full of curves and if you tend to throw up equip yourself with pills or abstain from food. Its important to be in shape to hike until the top and definetely acclimatise in Cusco a few days before going.

          Fantastic Day Trip
          Amazing trip with a fantastic view. Guide Nilton was a standout - accommodating, funny and professional. Smooth process throughout that left us with a feeling of freedom while still making sure everyone was accommodated. Would recommend to anyway. Driver Cirillo was also a very smooth and efficient driver.

          Great experience. 3 1/2 hours including transit, saw Plaza de Armas, la Catedral, and iglesia de Santo Domingo. Our guide Mayrol was excellent, very informative and had lots of great stories. Perfect half day introduction to Lima.

          Overall it was unlucky not totally company's fault but above said suggestions will make you the best company.best.
          The local company who works with should check 24 hours predictions of the place before we are visiting, if chances are more than 40 or 50 of rain or snow, should notify customer, and give them option of another trip of same day or if they like to still take the chance of ruining or wasting their money and time. I was first time their, was not expecting like this . When we reached at mountain, it was raining and foggy that later changed into snow, and negative wind-chill, and worse was visibility was less than few feets. After spending all day, could not see the mountains beauty. Unfortunately I had an accident with another mountain bike, when I was coming down on a mountain bike sitting behind the driver with my hiking stick, another bike upward bound hit our bike, actually hit my hiking stick, that hit on the back end my upper left chest, fractured a rib. Guide was nice enough to drop me to clinic on our way back to Cusco that evening. Where I spent 3 hours. Anyway, I am back to USA, was in pain in rest of trip. Unfortunately I didn't have extra days to try to go back to rainbow mountain or any other excursion, if the local company share the weather prediction and offer them choices of continuation of original plan or change all together, it will just help to make an intelligent decision. This is my suggestion. Guide or our transportation should be equipped with emergency medication, gears and other things.

          7 Lakes Hike at Amazing Ausangate
          We spent an entire day with guide Robinson La Torre, from 6am until 6:30pm, and enjoyed every moment with him! I'm an avid hiker and don't normally hire guides, but I'm this case it was well worth it. There was so much to see at Ausangate that I had not seen before and his knowledge of the area, is people, culture and history made the trip a much richer experience. It was also very comforting to be with someone who speaks multiple languages, various extra supplies, and is prepared for any situation. This hike is AMAZING, especially with a friend like Robinson making sure you get the most from it!

        Wally's expertise and passion for the Humantay Lake tour made our experience exceptional. His insightful commentary and deep knowledge of the area added a rich layer of understanding to the stunning natural beauty we encountered. Wally's friendly demeanor and attentiveness to our group's needs ensured that everyone felt engaged and cared for throughout the journey. His enthusiasm was contagious, making the tour not only informative but also incredibly enjoyable. I highly recommend Wally as a tour guide for anyone looking to explore the breathtaking Humantay Lake region.

        Such an amazing trip from Cusco into the region of where Humantay Lake is located at.

        The bus that Chullos Travel Peru used was the best that I've seen in the city, very nice and comfortable ride(accounting for the bumpiness of going up a mountain!)

        My tour guide - Wally had such a great positive attitude and made some great jokes along the way. He was very considerate of everyone, and had a great skill of keeping everyone going - especially during the hike up the mountain to the lake.

        The hike up to the laguna can be quite difficult, but there is no race to the top, and there was no rush or feeling of being rushed with anything during the entire time of the excursion.

        Breakfast and lunch were provided, and was more than enough to account for the physical exertion that is required. Both breakfast and lunch are at a small restaurant in a remote town on the wall to the lake. The lunch on the way back was one of the most picture-esq memories that I have from my entire trip in Peru. Overlooking the mountains and hearing the intoxicating sounds of parakeets flying through the valley as you bask in the experience is something hard to put into words.

        I would advise that if you are not in good physical shape, the hike will wipe you out. Because of the elevation(over 14,000 feet) and consistent uphill hike for over an hour, it was very exhausting, but it is worth it at the top.

        The price is very reasonable and it is good to see that a lot of the money that is used for the cost of the trip benefits people native to the Cusco region.

        Great time and memories that I will never forget! Thank you Wally and team!

        I could not recommend this tour more. Our group had been separated due to separate bookings and Wally made sure that we were all together in the same group by taking in extra group members so we could be together. We stopped at the most beautiful lookout place for breakfast and lunch, the views were incredible! Wally made the sacred offering very special and meaningful, took wonderful pictures of our group in front of the beautiful lake, and explained so many interesting aspects of the lake to us. Wally made this experience unforgettable and our experience definitely would not have been the same without him. He helped us take horses up to the top because we were worried about the altitude, it was 80 soles and so worth it, it was surreal! We enjoyed this tour and loved Wally so much we booked rainbow mountain with him for the next day. 10/10 recommend Wally for Lake Humantay!!!

        This was one of the most amazing experience in my entire lifetime! The excursion to Humatay Lake is something that everyone should do in Cusco and especially with Everforever. They did such great job communicating the itinerary, planning the entire trip out and giving us best explanation about the history. On top of that, the trip came with delicious local buffet. I rarely write reviews, but this one I had to write it because of how awesome everything was.

        This was an amazing excursion, especially for the price! In addition to getting to experience Humantay Lake and learn a little about it from your tour guide, this excursion includes pick up from your hotel, bus rides there and back, and breakfast & lunch! My group was fun and lively, and the tour guide Wally was THE BEST! He made sure everyone was comfortable and having a good time! I would recommend this trip 10000/10!

        I was part of a group tour to Humantay Lake led by Heber Forever and it was a fantastic time with him and the group. Heber was a first rate guide keeping things on schedule and running smoothly while attending to every need of each person in the group. He was kind and attentive guide that made sure we were safe and comfortable throughout our journey to, up to the Lake, and back to Cusco. Not to mention the driver was also very professional and safe. Heber is a great guide who I would highly recommend to anyone interested in visiting Humantay Lake since he’s professional, friendly, and all around someone who will make it a better experience for everyone under his care.

        We had a fantastic time on our journey to Lake Humantay! We enjoyed a nice breakfast on the way up (about an hour into the trip). To echo what many others have said, our guide HEBER FOREVER was the best. A+++. He really made the group feel excited about our adventure and was helpful to anyone in need. My wife and I highly recommend this tour! You will come back to Cusco happy, tired and amazed by the beauty of this lake and the surrounding mountains.

        Exceptionally organised tour - highly recommend. Food is great. Wally our guide was always positive, funny, insightful and he made the challenging trek comfortable for everyone. You can pay extra to ride a horse up if required.

        Wally invited the group to participate in a ritual beside the sacred Laguna Humantay, which felt so special in the breathtaking landscape. He took photos for us and we were never rushed.

        Outstanding day!

        Wally is the perfect guide. He made the trip smooth and easy for the entire group. The breakfast and lunch was also very delicious! The hike itself is medium to high level- if you suffer from altitude sickness, I wouldn’t recommend doing this the first thing! However, there’s always an option to get a mule to help you hike up the mountain (extra cost). This was a well worth it trip ♥️

        The lake is absolutely gorgeous! Our tour guide Robinson was also great, always pushing us to complete this very difficult hike. The road to get to the top of the mountain is quite narrow and scary but the driver was very safe and professional. Unfortunately we come from sea level so we took very long to get to the lake therefore, we only had little time to spend there. Overall would recommend!
