We chose Puma Salkantay as the operator for our five day Salkantay trek in late Oct. because one of our friends recommended it. And after the trip we can say that we also recommend Puma Salkantay to any of our friends who want to have a good experience in Peru.
Edwin is very responsive from the beginning. Always very prompt with replying our questions and providing detailed information about the trip. Once we were in Cusco, he met us at our hotel to go through the details of the trip and patiently answered all of our questions. We really enjoyed our trip and Edwin's help along the way ensured our trip to be an informed one. We really appreciate his timely help. And we can say that we recommend Puma Salkantay to anyone who want to visit this part of Peru.

Had an incredible experience in Cusco, thanks to my tour guide Edwin. I planned this trip on a short notice and was traveling alone yet, Edwin made sure that I cover every important place in Cusco. The hotels were comfortable yet budget friendly, Edwin gave some pretty good food recommendations and helped all the way from getting a new sim card to exchanging currency and stuff.

Thank you so much to Edwin for helping coordinate my Peru adventure. Edwin helped plan and book a great itinerary of local adventures in Cusco as well as our long trek to Machu Picchu.

As a heads up, Edwin is a tour operator but you will be with someone else as the actual guide. Edwin did a great job communicating and planning everything which made my trip super easy. The price for the the whole trek and day trips was also much better than other places and you get a similar experience.

Edwin provided us with the best tour. His English was excellent, and adapted the tour to best suit what we wanted. He was also extremely helpful with other information we needed and also was there to help. Would definitely recommend Edwin’s tour to everybody! Cusco is truly a gem 😊

I highly recommend Puma. And the Salkantay trek. The communication before and throughout was excellent and Edwin took care to give a really useful briefing. The trek itself is through magical landscapes. The good food helped as did touches like coca tea in bed each morning. Vidal our guide had a great knowledge, enthusiasm and was very caring. A really fantastic experience!

I worked closely with Edwin when planning my trip and he was amazing to work with. Edwin set me up with an awesome City Tour in Cusco that I would highly recommend, he also set me up with my day trip to Machu Picchu and day trip to Humantay Lake. I would recommend all 3 tours if you have the time. The company will set up everything for you, and will give you a detailed itinerary for each trip. I was originally working with Edwin to complete the 5d/4n Salkantay trek; however, I had some issues with the airline and did not receive my bag so I ended up cancelling the trek last minute. Edwin worked with me the whole time to be sure I was seeing all of the best things to see in Cusco, and making the absolute best of my trip even though I couldn’t make the hike I originally had planned. Working with Edwin and this company was a great experience. Towards the end of my trip I met a new friend in Cusco and I referred her to Puma Salkantay, specifically Edwin, for her to do the Humantay Lake trip and she loved it too! I will be recommending this company to anyone I know traveling to Cusco.
