Amazing tour with Jonathan!
Aug 2019 • Couples
We spent the last two days with Jonathan on the 2 days ‘Exploring Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu’ Tour. Jonathan was absolutely amazing. He is knowledgeable, interesting, engaging, funny, organised and tireless! Everything went very smoothly, we had plenty of time in every place we visited. Besides tons of historical information we also got some insight into Peruvian culture. The dinner place he suggested in Aguas Calientes was incredible. I would definitely recommend the tour and Jonathan as the tour guide.

Amazing tour with an amazing guide
This tour was by far one of the highlights of our trip in Peru. We had a private tour for my girlfriend and myself and Jonathan was our tour guide. Jonathan was really excellent, we felt like he was a friend doing the trip with us and knows a lot of what he is talking about. We asked him hundreds of questions and he was always happy to answer. We love taking pictures and he never said anything when we asked him to stop to take pictures, he was really patient with us. Would definitely recommend this tour with Jonathan !

Our Machu Picchu exploration
Aside from the fact that the place Machu Picchu is a one majestic place our tour guide Auqui,(Chennisbtanger Yucra Choqqueconza his full name), is so knowledgeable and sincere with his profession that made our tour a one awe inspiring experience. His warm and gentle care specially to our friends who needed special attention due to their age and his expertise and information provided made our tour definitely a one that we would like others to experience. He is definitely a big asset for your business and for us a wonderful companion for exploring the Machu Picchu. Sulpiqui (thank you), hope I spelled it right. Auqui thought us this too. 😊

Custom Tour - Short Inka Trail, Macchu Picchu, Sacred Valley & more
May 2019 • Friends
We had a great experience with Inkayni Tours in our custom tour of Peru. Everything was well coordinated. A special highlight was
Our one day short Inka trail and time in Macchu Picchu. Our guide, Franco Pillco Bustamante, was exceptional and highly recommended.
Franco met with us the evening before, with a calming approach, explained what we needed to know and bring.
Franco was so caring and intelligent. He was a wealth of information on the Inka history and everything we saw along the way and often supplemented his explanations with graphics he had in his backpack. Franco was so patient and kind and helped with carrying things as needed . He made adjustments as needed in concern with our safety and success. This was important to me to achieve the trail being a sea-level resident and older. Coming thru the Sun Gate at the end of the day and seeing Macchu Picchu below was an experience I will never forget. Macchu Picchu was so beautiful and the next day we got to explore and learn so much more about how it was used. we had the magical experience thanks to our guide.
I also want to mention our EcoAmazonia tour near Puerto Madonado was highly enjoyable. We had a great guide Eber who led our jungle hikes with great knowledge and good spirit.

Amazing family trip
Jun 2019 • Family
My husband, myself and our 4 young adult children were on this tour.
We were given a briefing 2 days prior at the Inkayni office in Cusco. As discussed, we were picked up promptly at 8:00am by our guide Amadeo and driver Percy. They had a spacious van that seated even the 2 six-footers comfortably. Amadeo was easy to understand, accommodating and very thorough. Percy's driving was excellent.
Chinchero, Maras and Moray were all a must-see. We stopped for lunch in Urubamba- a clean and inexpensive buffet spread- before taking the train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes. We had upgraded to the Vistadome train for an extra $55 per person. The tour company put us up at the 3-star Golden Sunrise hotel in Aguas Calientes. It was basic, but okay.
Since we wanted to view the sunrise at Machu Picchu, the hotel brown-bagged our breakfast. They also stored our bags for the day. (Breakfast starts at 4 am)
Machu Picchu was breathtaking and Amadeo was very informative. We lucked out with clear blue skies. The kids climbed Huayna Picchu, which they described as "steep at times" but worth the effort. That was an extra $35 per person.
We were given plenty of time to walk around MP before taking the 20-minute bus ride back to Aguas Calientes. Also, the bathrooms outside the MP gates are clean, have toilet paper, and cost 2 Soles to enter. The optional "Machu Picchu passport stamp" is at a table by the entrance/exit.
For a small town, there were plenty of dinner and lunch choices in Aguas Calientes. (and 3 of us are vegetarian). When it was time, we boarded our train back to Ollantaytambo where Percy was waiting with the van to take us back to Cusco. Percy did a fantastic job bringing us back fast and safe.

Even the people in the Inkayni Peru Tours office- Myriam and Lisseth, whom I communicated with throughout, were very pleasant to deal with.
A definite recommend.

Amazing two day tour of Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu
Jun 2019 • Friends
We had a wonderful two day tour with our guide Rodrigo and our driver Guido - they picked us up at 8 am and we headed first to Chinchero for a tour with a local group who shares info on textiles - the view from the main square was amazing as well. Next we headed to Maras to the salt mines where they mine Peruvian Pink Salt - so beautiful and then on to Moray, the Inca agricultural lab. From there to Ollantaytambo where we had time for a quick tour of the Inca Temple before boarding the Inca Rail Line train to Aguas Calientes. We left our hotel at 5 am to take the bus to Machu Picchu and entered right when it opened at 6:30. Unbelievable to be there so early, before the crowds and watch the sunrise. Rules to the site have changed so it was really great to have Rodrigo with us to share history and help us understand local hiking options - the Inca Drawbridge trail and the Inca Trail up to Sun Gate. We enjoyed spending time with Rodrigo and getting to know more about life in Peru as well as hearing great info about the many sites we were able to see! Would highly recommend Rodrigo and Guido, this company and this tour - it was a definite highlight of our trip to Peru! A huge shout out to our driver Guido too - we have driven ourselves in many different countries but would not recommend here where all driving rules seem to be suggestions!

Great Trip to Machu Picchu
This tour was a great way to see the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu in an efficient way. Auqui was an excellent guide and knew a ton about the history of each place we visited. He had a good sense of humor and was very accommodating throughout our 2 day trip. We had added the Machu Picchu mountain hike and Auqui waited for us while we did it and then proceeded to give us the tour of the ruins. The logistics at each step was handled well and our hotel accommodation in Aguas Calientes was nice. Would recommend the private 2 day tour to anyone who would like to see Machu Picchu and the sacred valley in a short period of time.

Fantastic tour if youre short on time
Our tour guide 'Guido' was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and instructions were clear and concise.I would highly recommend to ask for him as your guide. As a photographer he was obliging in stopping or telling me there was a better spot to photograph something around a corner. He knew all the best spots. The driver Fernando they supplied was great. He drove at a speed we felt safe with and allowed time for photo stops. Even deviating slightly for us to get that perfect 'Shot'. I can't recommend either of these guys enough. The Sacred valley And Machu Picchu trip itself was everything you could want and no words describe it. The train ride up to Machu Picchu was spectacular. The trip is 10 out of 10 for value for money, and safely and knowledge.
