    Visiting the Humantay Lagoon was one of my best experiences thanks to Terra Quechua Peru, everything was planned from start to finish and we did not miss anything, we left Cusco early towards the lagoon but on the way we had different stops, where we could observe and have breakfast in the town of Mollepata, then we also had a long walk in which I was able to take different photos of landscapes, definitely the experience is unforgettable, the tour from the beginning very professional, during the walk to the lagoon Marco (guide) always worried about his group and supported us in what we needed. excellent attention

    I went with a friend and we did the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu for 5 days with Bioandean Expeditions. Since we went to the agency the day before starting the trip until we arrived in Machu Picchu, I felt very accompanied by the company. Our guide Mario, a genius! Very responsible, he always recommended what to wear and what the road would be like the next day.
    doing the inca trail is the best but there comes a time when you say you are not going to finish it, but when you get to see the wonder before your eyes you think that all the effort to get there was nothing and the reward is before your eyes, No forget after visiting Machu Picchu to take a bath in the medicinal waters of Aguas Calientes.
    I recommend this tour to those who want to meet and spend some time alone with the mountain. A variety of incredible landscapes, passing through rivers, trees, jungle, even rocky paths

    It is a square with arcades that is the true center of the city where all the important events take place, parades, demonstrations, parties... In this square is the Cathedral, the Cabildo and in the center there is a beautiful fountain

    Very well organized tour by Bioandean Expeditions with very friendly guide and driver. Pick up very early at 4 a.m. so you can get to the top of rainbow mountain long before you see the big crowd coming. the tour includes pick up from your hostel, breakfast and lunch.
    The place is extremely beautiful, I was able to see the colors and I had the best guide who encouraged me to reach the top. My friend and I had the best adventure, the food was excellent, there were many options and the transportation was super clean. A special thanks to Jose for his knowledge and information about the place.

    Easily reached from the center of Cusco by walking. the artisans market in the Plaza San Blas is less crowded than the central market and some of those who displayed their wares had stores near by.

    It makes sense to see this with a tour guide so you understand the history. Its a historical inca site and now a convent. It has beautiful gardens. There are paintings in the site too. You can see the inca architecture and the cleverness of the design to withstand earthquakes.

    I loved this tour, I can say that it is one of my best travel experiences and that it did not seem as commercial a tour as others in Peru. The Bioandean Expeditions agency is very good, they gave us a great service, they came to look for us quite punctually between 3:00 am and 3:30 am, that allowed us to be one of the first groups to climb the mountain, breakfast and lunch were delicious and the price of everything is worth it.
    The way to this place is full of incredible views, I did the "short" way, an hour there and an hour and a half back, walking next to a mountain that shone with its different colors and also next to a beautiful snowy I recommend very comfortable clothes, shoes with grip, bring water, something to eat (cereal bar and nuts). On the way up it doesn't feel that cold but at the top it gets really cold and the wind is strong so I suggest wearing a hat and gloves and a good jacket for those who think they need them, the mountain is absolutely beautiful!

    We stopped in as part of a tour of multiple Inca ruins around Cusco. This is a sanctuary for Llamas, Alpacas, and vicunas, and the like. The animals we saw appeared well cared for. attached to the sanctuary is a cooperative where the fur is processed into yarn, sweaters, woven goods, and art. They will teach you about the differences in the wool and how to spot imitations. They do also sell all the products they display.

    Small museum but was interesting. It was inexpensive and we spent about 1.5 hours. You start with a short video with english subtitles. We watched then walked around all of the placards were in english as well as spanish. It was a quiet spot and nice way to spend some time.
