What our clients say

Amazing guide

I was lucky to have a personal tour with Jimmy for my visit to Machu Picchu. Jimmy made my experience 5++++ stars! He is knowledgeable and friendly and also very helpful. He has a natural skill that enables him to customize his tour for his guest’s physical ability, interests, etc. I can’t recommend him enough and I look forward to taking another tour with him one day soon!

An amazing tour

Jimmy was an excellent and authentic guide. He had a deep knowledge of Machu Pichu and a very friendly demeanor. His English is strong as well. Very quickly, Jimmy created a little community in our group and was very intelligent in when to take a break on the climbs and such. I highly recommend Jimmy.
