It was Ritika and my first trip to South America and we had a fabulous time. Everything went smoothly beginning from the planning stages to the end of the trip. Daniel, our contact person in the US was available to answer any questions and we also had someone in Peru throughout the trip that we could contact if needed. Once we arrived in Lima someone greeted us at the airport and took us to the gate for our connecting flight to Cusco to make sure we would be safe and prompt. At each way along the trip, the transfers to and from the airport, connecting flights, to the rides from the train and bus ride from Agua Calientes, there was someone there to pick us up which was important for us as foreigners. We would highly recommend this company for anyone considering a trip to Peru.

“The trip was amazing. Very quick response: the most amazing thing by far for me was something that i don’t remember reading in any of your literature, or anything on-line. After dinner on Amanti, dead tired and heading to the party, I paused and looked up. And was frozen for ten minutes. Understand, I had never seen the Milky Way before. And here above me, on this perfectly clear night, was not The Milky Way, but THE MILKY WAY!!! It was huge. The stars were huge … and not blinking. The altitude! It was absolutely magnificent.”
Merry Christmas and many thanks for the awesome Inka experience that your company provided. This year’s Christmas card picture was Machu Picchu one of the many highlights of our summer vacation.
I must admit, I was skeptical about contracting a service that would arrange our travel plans but I was overwhelmingly surprised on how you coordinated perfectly the tour buses, train rides, hotel accommodations, tour guides and how easy it was to access your office when we had questions or concerns. I was so impressed that I told my husband we cannot plan another trip without this type of service. You and your staff -Boris, tour guide for the Trek and Machu Picchu were respectful, on time, hospitable and overwhelmingly generous. Boris went above and beyond to accommodate our travel in Cuzco. Our trek guide, horseman and cook were very kind, patient and compassionate with my family’s first experience in the overnight trek. We enjoyed beautiful views like the glaciers on the way to Rainbow mountain, hiking through the ruins inOllantaytamboand Machu Picchu.
We highly recommend Inka experience! Those acquiring your services will not be disappointed. I am grateful that you took the time to ask us what we expected from this trip as well as understood our limitations in order to personalize this vacation to maximize our experience in Peru. My children said this is the best trip that we have ever taken. Thank God and thank you all.

We had an amazing experience in cusco and have the Inka Experience to thank for that! Everything ran very smoothly and was an experience of a lifetime! Krista and I would recommend them to anyone
I just wanted to say Thank you!! Peru was such an amazing adventure!! We had so much fun, we didn’t have to worry about reservations, schedules, etc, your agency had everything planned until the smallest detail. I loved how easy it was to contact you every time I had a questions or comment. Having personalized attention always makes the experience better. We didn’t have to worry about anything except enjoy our time in Peru, so it was great. I would recommend Inka Experience every time.
We had a great time. Cusco and Ollantaytambo were relaxing, and the Inka Trail was a difficult but amazing experience and a fantastic way to enter Macchu Pichu. We lucked out with weather for the most part and mostly had rain only when we were sleeping. It was beautifully sunny as we got to the Sun Gate to see Macchu Pichu. Our guide, Julio, was knowledgeable and experienced and kept the group on track and upbeat through our mild bouts of altitude-related symptoms. Ollantaytambo is a great place to relax after the trek if you’ve already visited Cusco, and there are few tourists there.
Our only quibble with the hike was that everyone else was given (and took) the option upon booking to pay extra to have the porters carry their sleeping bags and packs while we were never given that option. Also a note to future travelers: make sure you have cash for tipping your guide and porters.
The Tambopata Reserve was gorgeous. Our cabanas in the middle of the rainforest were spacious and well appointed, though of course the weather was hot and humid. We saw all kinds of animals including monkeys, sloths, parrots and other birds, otters, armadillos, turtles, caiman, insects, spiders, snakes, and capybara. The food was fantastic, and the service was top notch.
Our whole experience planning the trip with you was easy and straightforward even though we kept changing our plans. I loved that you had a cell phone SIM card ready for us since buying a local SIM is something I always do anyway when I travel abroad, and I’m not sure that everyone knows to do it. It’s really a game changer to be able to use mobile internet (Google Maps, Trip Advisor, etc.) and to be able to make local calls. Thanks for checking up on us throughout the trip, too. It made us feel like we weren’t completely on our own in Peru.
Thank you for everything!

El viaje a Perú fue maravilloso, el paisaje, comida y cultura valen muchísimo la pena. La atención que tuvimos por parte de la agencia Inka Experience fue de gran ayuda, ya que nos permitió descansar y desconectarnos del estrés de viajar y los horarios, el personal era atento y te hacían sentir como en casa!
Mil gracias Inka Experience.

We had a fabulous trip! Thank you very much. Everything went really smoothly, and the guides (especially Henry) were great. We could not be more pleased with how well it went.
The homestay on Amantani was the high point. The girls loved it, and so did we. Henry was masterful in terms of being available to educate us and then ‘disappearing’ so we had alone time. The family was lovely, the views spectacular and the setting perfect to decompress a bit.
The altitude took a day of adjustment, but overall not bad. It was humbling for my native Coloradan husband to admit that he could feel the altitude!
The only thing we’d do different is to hike more in Colca. If we were to do it again, we would like to do a hike in Colca to get a better sense of the Canyon–anywhere between 1-4 hours. We liked the miradors and stopping to see animals, but I think we would have preferred to get out and move more. We would have been fine getting to Puno a little later, but I realize that might not be ideal for Miguel and the driver.
You were fabulous, so accommodating and helpful. We’ve been recommending you to everyone. We’ll work with you again!
Thank you very much!
We had an amazing trip in Peru organised by Inka Experience with our 3 kids.
We really appreciated our welcome chat in Lima with the mobile phone and the gifts for the cold weather.
Here are the highlights of our trip:
The punctuality and service of all intermediaries provided by Inka Experience.
The choice of the itinerary and the cities and sites to visit.
The quality of the transportation services (all high class vans, very comfortable)
The accuracy in replying very quickly during the planning of the trip.
The train ride from Puno to Cusco was amazing.
The JW Mariott in Cusco.
Our trip to Peru, organized by Inka Experience travel company, has been a memorable experience. Andres , our travel agent, took care of us at all times, from the moment we arrived in Lima, until we departed, making sure everything was as we expected.
He was very professional at all times, and tailoring the trip for our needs and expectations. All the hotels were good in different ways, meeting our expectations.
We totally recommend this agency for anyone planning to visit Peru in a customized trip. We will definitely contact this company in the future when we go back to Peru to visit other regions.
I heard about Inka Experience from an acquaintance at work. Her family had travelled with Inka Experience in the previous year, and they recommended it very highly. I couldn’t agree more. I booked a 9 day trip for myself and my daughter for December 2014. I did all of my work with Daniel Smith Contreras via email. He was thorough and prompt in responding to my many questions. The tone of every email was friendly, so I immediately felt in good hands.
Our original plan was to be in Cusco for 2 days and then do the 4 day hike on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, then return to Lima for a couple days. We were beyond excited. Unfortunately, my daughter became ill and I wasn’t fully adjusted to the altitude the night before we were to leave for the hike. We reluctantly canceled the hike. Daniel was able to rearrange our trip within a day! He had booked rooms to stay in Cusco, get train tickets to Machu Picchu and a hotel in Aguas Calientes so that we could meet up with the original guide at Machu Picchu. We enjoyed ourselves very much in spite of my daughter’s illness and most importantly, go to see Machu Picchu!
As I had purchased travel insurance, I needed a doctor’s statement for the claim to pay for the extra expenses. Daniel arranged for a doctor to come to the hotel, and he was very nice, professional and comforting. He dispensed medicine from his bag and gave us all the documents we needed. In dealing with the insurance company, I have had to ask Daniel for more and more documentation, and as always, he has been friendly, helpful and professional.
I highly recommend Daniel Smith and Inka Experience for travel in Peru.

Inka Experience made our trip an experience of a lifetime! Daniel very agreeably went back and forth with us to customize the itinerary to meet our needs – including cities to visit, hotels, and tours. The transportation transfers and guides were fantastic, and made everything easy for us. Inka Experience even provided restaurant recommendations and overall tips for traveling in Peru. During our 12-day trip, we visited Lima, Arequipa, Colca Valley, Puno / Lake Titicaca, Cusco, and Aguas Calientes / Machu Picchu. We loved every place for different reasons, but the home stay we did on Amantani Island on Lake Titicaca was definitely a highlight. The host family we stayed with was wonderful, and it was so interesting to learn about how they live. It was Chris’s birthday during our stay, and they sang happy birthday to him and even made a lei of flowers for each of us. Our guide (Elvis) for the whole Lake Titicaca experience was personable and passionate about explaining the culture, traditions, and history. Our city tours in Cusco and Lima were also fantastic, and the setting of Machu Picchu was even more grand in person than you can imagine! Photos do not do it justice! Booking with a smaller, Peru-based operator was the best decision for us and made the experience more personalized than going with a bigger company where you are one of many customers. We would absolutely book with Inka Experience again and recommend them highly.
Jen and Chris
Our trip from Canada to Peru was wonderful!
My family and I are very grateful to Inka Experience for the excellent service we had in the different cities visited (Lima, Cieneguilla, Paracas, etc.). Throughout our stay the service provided was just perfect.
All services were very well organized and excellent quality: transportation, tour guides, hotels, restaurants, information, activities, etc.
I recommend Inka Experience and his team for their professionalism, flexibility in management, punctuality, organization, and everything that one expects when traveling.
And of course to say about this wonderful country that is Peru, with diverse cultures, stunning landscapes, delicious and wonderful people.
Our next trip will definitely whit Inka Experience!
Many thanks for everything!

Recently had the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of using Inka Experience Travel Service while vacationing in Cusco, Peru. The quality and organization of the tour was impressive and very convenient to a traveler such as myself, being the first time I had visited South America. They were very communicative and attentive about every detail in the events of our itinerary, and made sure they our accommodations top notch. Our guides were courteous, knowledgeable, well versed in travel tips, and a pleasure to meet and be in the company of. Using this travel service made my vacation relaxing and stress free since they handled most of the details for us. My great experience was accentuated because of the wonderful members of the team on the tour and the order of events set in place with the tour company. I would recommend this service to anyone visiting this beautiful country!
Primero que todo muchas gracias por todo! Por tu atención que me pareció excelente, pues estuviste muy pendiente de nosotros y con toda la lora que te di estabas dispuesto a ayudar en todo momento.
La experiencia en general fue muy buena, puntualidad en la mayoría de los casos con una excepción en Cusco que tuvimos que esperar un poquito a la recogida para ir a Machu Picchu, pero nada grave, los hoteles donde nos hospedamos estuvieron buenísimos, la atención de los guías y las personas que nos recibieron fue excelente, todos muy atentos y cordiales.
Todo estuvo de acuerdo a lo planeado y la pasamos muy bien!!!
Definitivamente recomendaríamos a Inka Experience para la gente que conozcamos que vayan a viajar, es mas, un amigo viaja con la familia en diciembre de este año y ya les pase los datos a ellos para que se pongan en contacto contigo.
I just wanted to take a few minutes to express my great satisfaction with our experience in Peru on our tour last month. The trip was everything we hoped for and more. Your choices of accommodations were excellent. All of the tour pick ups were on time and all of the tour guides were wonderful. We were truly impressed by your detailed scheduling and care in setting everything up. Everything ran smoothly everyday was an adventure! Cuzco is an impressive city, especially at night and Machu Picchu has to be seen to be believed! The tour and overnight stay on Lake Titicaca it was a special highlight and our hosts were very gracious. All guides were knowledgeable and very kind – we would however wish to single out our guide to the Cañon del Colca, who was truly excellent. He knew so much about the region and felt much passion for his heritage. Peru is truly an amazing country with awesome people! Many thanks to the staff of Inka Experience for taking such good care of us. Your professionalism and consideration to our needs is much appreciated. I will certainly recommend your company to anyone who may be planning to visit Peru and will use your good services again for any future trips.
All the best,
Cuzco tiene muchas bellezas que no se aprecian, Machu Picchu es mágico, mi experiencia es descubrir lo que somos como cultura, respetarla y difundirla, la experiencia más valiosa es la que vivimos día a día, y en este camino es que llegue a Perú, Cuzco y Machu Picchu a continuar viviendo mi experiencia de vida que es valiosa por vivirla intensamente..
Me gustó el servicio brindado por Inka Experience, quienes se preocuparon de entregar el mejor servicio a tiempo y cumplieron con mis expectativas en Cuzco y Machu Picchu.
Destaco su preocupación por vivir mi experiencia en Perú de la mejor forma, y el respeto en las condiciones del servicio brindado.

We had a lot of fun and felt safe and relaxed all the way, thus enjoying the wonderful Cusco, Machu picchu, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo, their incredible people and a long, long, etc. The guys at Inka Experience planned everything in detail and left us only the fun part. Since the beginning you feel in good hands for they are really serious about their job and committed to having set even the smallest details of the trip. The incredible part is they do all this without having you involved in all the fuss, allowing you to enjoy your vacation from the very beginning: the planning ahead stuff. We totally recommend Inka Experience and would rate them with a solid Two Thumbs Up! Absolutely people to trust in for a different way to deeply reach a culturally awesome country!
Thank for everything,
Perú, uno de los lugares del mundo ideales para estar y disfrutar. Es un país donde existen todas las posibilidades que pueda desear un viajero, conocer de cerca la interesantísima cultura inca, su historia, y como no, una de las increíbles obras construida por los humanos a lo largo de la historia, como es Machu Picchu. Unos paisajes naturales unicos como son el altiplano, el lago Titicaca, los Andes, los desiertos con sus dunas y oasis, selva, una variadísima fauna salvaje y exquisita gastronomía. Creo que poco mas se puede pedir.
Mi experiencia por Perú ha sido genial, la gente de alli es muy amable y atenta, como el buen trabajo hecho por Inka Experience, te organizan un “viaje a la carta”, satisfaciendo los deseos particulares de cada uno. Siempre han estado muy atentos y he podido comprobar con esta agencia que en las excursiones estaban organizados los grupos donde los guías solo tuvieran que explicar en un idioma, haciendo que ese tiempo sea mas provechoso, y sobre todo que los guías eran personas con mucho conocimiento y experiencia. Para mi, muy recomendable hacer el trekking del Cañón del Colca que resulta una verdadera toma de contacto con la naturaleza y donde se ve a los majestuosos cóndores.
Gracias Inka Experience.
“Mi viaje Fantástico por Perú.”
Hacer un recorrido de 12 días por Perú ha sido una de las experiencias más extraordinarias que he tenido en los últimos años. Perú simplemente es fantástico; los recorridos históricos por Cuzco, el Valle Sagrado y Machu Picho fueron mágicos; la ciudad de Lima fue excitante (hice un vuelo Tandem que me elevo la adrenalina a mil) y las Islas Uros en el Sur del Perú fueron algo único. La comida es simplemente algo que NADIE SE PUEDE PERDER…deliciosa. La gente fue sumamente calida amable y me hicieron sentir como en casa. Fue maravillosos descubrir lo bien que tratan al turismo y la calidad del servicio en todos lados.
El plus lo dio viajar con InkaExperience ya que fue una experiencia gratificante: toda la organización fue perfecta, los hoteles con buena ubicación, los guías turísticos muy amables y con conocimiento del lugar. Me sentí muy segura y con atención personalizada. La atención de Andrés fue sumamente buena, me recomendó muchos lugares y planeo mi corta estancia de manera meticulosa… Volvería a planear algo con ellos!
Muchos Saludos desde Haiti.
Recién llegamos de nuestras vacaciones en Perú; 18 días inolvidables a través de las diversos paisajes, pueblos, gentes y culturas peruanas.
El país nos ha sorprendido gratamente y ha superado con creces nuestras expectativas. En gran parte se lo debemos a la profesionalidad con la que Inka Experience nos ha ayudado a organizar todos y cada uno de los detalles más minuciosos del viaje. Todos los servicios contratados (buses, alojamientos, guías, actividades…) eran de calidad contrastada y de gran seriedad. Todo fue sobre ruedas, sin dejar lugar a imprevistos y sorpresas de última hora.
De Inka Experience destacamos su saber hacer, su agilidad en la gestión y la implicación personal de su equipo para que el viaje sea mágico y único.
Gracias Inka Experience por hacer de este viaje una aventura inexplicable en palabras.
Perú, un país maravilloso lleno de contrastes. Un viaje muy enriquecedor lleno de emoción y de aventura. De entre todas las cualidades que ofrece el país, merece la pena destacar sus gentes, cultura, paisajes y como no… su gastronomía.
Gracias Andrés por la gestión realizada y sobre todo por tu atención personalizada. Ha sido un acierto haber contratado los servicios de Inka Experience.
Our trip from the U.S .to Peru was a trip of a life time for all of us, from the minute we landed in Lima to our departure back to the U.S. The staff at Inka Experience did an amazing job putting everything together for our large family group. They did a wonderful job providing transportation for all of our family members that arrived on different days and times. Our greeter, bus drivers, and guides were all very knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone felt well cared for and safe. All of the activities planed were just want we asked for. We saw unbelievable sights starting in Lima and ending in Cusco. The hotels arranged were all very comfortable, in excellent locations, and offered us a good nights rest after an action packed day. We will never forget the unbelievable and breathtaking sights we saw or the friendly people we met. Inka Experience helped us to learn, understand, and experience the Peruvian culture. Our whole family will never forget this time we spent together in such a beautiful place. We hope that someday we will be able to return and visit more of this beautiful country.
Thank you to all our new friends at Inka Experience.
Pat and Tim MacAvoy
Our Inca Experience was very interesting. Our guides were very informative. Jimmy, our bus driver in Cusco was an Excellent driver. He could maneuver around any obstacle. He was also very accommodating. Our tour guide in Cusco could answer all our questions and had much local and historic information to share. We had a really enjoyable experience. Thank you Inka Experience
I had a great time with my family on the Inka experience tour of Cusco. It was unfortunate that we were not able to go to Machu Pichu, but everything else about the tour was great. The hotels were comfortable and relaxing. The tour guide was informative, friendly and helpful. You could tell that he really cared about what he was talking about. He was very knowledgable. The transportation was also great. The bus was always on time, the transfers to and from the airport were flawless, and the people in charge of getting us to where we needed to be were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend the Inka experience to anyone.
Gracias Inka Experience!!!!!
Realmente disfrutamos nuestro viaje al Cusco!!! Es una ciudad maravillosa con una energia increible y muchas cosas por ver y conocer. Todos los servicios brindados fueron A1, los tranfers,el guia, la comida,los tours etc. Definitivamente queremos regresar a conocer Machupichu!
Trip advisor review from Eric & Adriana View review
Anyone considering a trip to Peru should go – now – before the country changes too much. Peru has so much to see that you can create the trip of a lifetime. But, please use a reputable, experienced and responsible tour company like Inka Experience. When traveling in Peru, it is difficult to make connections with – and judgments about – the many tour guides, companies, and independent operators that make up Peru’s booming tourism industry. That’s what Inka Experience does well. It takes your requests and uses its contacts and experience to work with you to create the best trip for you. My wife and I worked with Inka Experience to create a 16-day trip that included Lima, Cusco, mountain biking in the Sacred Valley, the four-day Salkantay Trek up to 15,190 feet, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and a jungle lodge. It was a trip we will never forget – from the breathtaking scenery of the Salkantay Trek and Machu Picchu to the roars of howler monkeys in the Peruvian jungle. When problems came up, Inka Experience stepped up and solved them. Our trip would not have been so memorable without Inka Experience
Trip advisor review from Thom & Ellen View review
My girlfriend and I decided to visit Peru namely for Macchu Picchu. We ended up staying for two weeks, and though we encountered several memorable experiences across several cities and regions within Peru, climbing to the top of Montana Macchu Picchu was definitely the highlight of our trip. I won’t spend much of my review here describing MP, as it is one of the Seven Wonders of the World that just has to be experienced in person. It is simply breathtaking, and no words can do it justice. You just need to go before it’s too late!
On that note, here is our little story that made visiting MP a reality for us (finally). Hopefully, our little story will help inspire you to visit too!
We had originally wanted to visit Peru last year, but by the time we performed our research, we were too late for purchasing permits to visit MP and other landmarks. So early this year, we decided to work with the pros to get the job done. We enlisted the services of Inka Experience (www.inkaexperience.com) and boy did we make a good decision. We worked with Daniel Smith to plan our visit. Not only was Daniel (owner and tour operator) knowledgeable, patient, and professional, he made sure our experience throughout was worry free and well planned. Daniel made it so easy for us: we told him what activities we wanted to do, and he took care of it all (scheduling, booking, logistics, travel, permits, tickets, EVERYTHING). Had we found Inka Experience last year, we would have been able to visit Peru then.
While in Peru, all our travel and accommodations materialized smoothly, beginning with the moment we exited the arrival gate at the airport. During our two weeks in Peru, we visited several cities, and at each pick up point there was someone to meet us and take us to our destination, whether it was to our hotel, to a tour stop, to an airport or boat ride, etc. All our tickets were lined up accordingly, with specific directions and details so we knew what we were doing and could properly plan and anticipate what was coming up next. We packed so many activities into our two weeks the trip was like a whirlwind, but because Daniel’s planning and communication were spot on, we never missed a beat and knew what to expect.
As if all this wasn’t enough, Daniel went above and beyond to take care of our unexpected tourist needs. One example was dealing with altitude sickness. My girlfriend got so sick she needed medical attention. Neither she nor I could speak or understand Spanish well enough to get by, and especially in this situation, we could not just wing it. Daniel not only acted as our translator, he showed up and talked to the doctors in person, representing our needs and making sure we were comfortable with everything that was going on. He helped us work things out with the travel insurance company as well.
Because of Daniel and Inka Experience, we avoided multiple ordeals of ignorance, communication gaps, and overall foreigner cluelessness. We were very appreciative and were lucky enough to spend our last night in Lima with Daniel watching an NBA playoff game at a local sports bar. What a downright down-to-earth and cool guy!
Trip advisor review from Suzanne and Michael View review
One of the best trips I’ve ever done in my life was the inca trail 4 day trek, ending in Machu Picchu. My entire Peru trip was amazing and arranged by Inka Experience tour guide company. below are my overall thoughts.
Inka Experience Tour Company – AMAZING
I worked with Daniel from Inka Experience and he set everything up for me and worked with my budget. Daniel and Inka Experience made me traveling alone to a foreign country much more comfortable and they were available 24 hours a day for any issues. Additionally Daniel spent several hours with me emailing back and forth to help plan the perfect trip that met all my needs. He offered suggestions and worked with my budget throughout and was very responsive. I was nervous due to lack of reviews or other information i could find on the Company, but everything worked out so seamlessly and amazing once I arrived in Peru, that I’d 100% recommend this Company to anyone wanting to travel to Peru alone or with a group. The complete trip was customized to my desires and every transfer/flight/hotel was on time/as expected/as advertised. Highly recommend using Inka Experience to plan any trip to Peru.
Machu Picchu – Inca trail trek and Hyuana Picchu hike FAVORITE PART of the TRIP
i highly recommend doing the 4 day inca trail trek. The beauty and natural surroundings are unreal and the feeling you get from hiking the strenuous trek was amazing. I recommend packing light – literally you could wear the same outfit all 4 days and bring one change for Machu Pichhu as the showers on the trek are freezing. i went in December which is their rainy season, but the weather is hit or miss w the rain. We got a lot of rain so make sure to bring rain covers for your packs and self, but the company provides all the tents and amazing food. You can also hire a porter for 30USD/day to carry your things which may make the trek more enjoyable.
At the end of the hike or if you just go to Machu Picchu, the hike to Hyuana Picchu mountain is a must and you need to reserve this in advance as only 400 people are allowed in per day. this is the mountain you see in the background of all the Machu Picchu pictures and the views are unreal. you can also hike Machu Pichu mountian itself, but the views are not as great. this Hyuana Picchu hike is strenuous, but over in around 30-40 minutes and well worth it.
I also traveled to the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest and Lake Titicaca. The amazon experience was amazing and I saw a lot of wildlife, but it was very humid. I stayed at inkaterra resort for 3 nights and based on the activities they had there, I’d recommend 2 nights only. there are many activities and my guide victor was so good that he could literally find animals by smelling them!
Lake Titicaca was magical, but a little touristy. I did the overnight stay with a family, but not speaking Spanish and the weather were a bit of a hindrance on this part of the trip. Overall the lake and the cultures on the different island within the lake were fascinating.
All in all, going with inka experience tour group made me doing all these events possible. I met several other people who spent a lot of time being carted around on buses or taken to random pit stops they didn’t care for. My trip was exactly what i had wanted given my time frame and budget. Additionally many things i read spoke to the large advance time you need to book tickets to Machu Picchu and Hyuana Picchu and inka experience was able to get me all the permits and tours I desired and really work with me on my trip.One of the best trips ever
