Just arrived at our hotel in Cusco after two days traveling with Valencia Cusco Travel.
First thing we did was to get online so we could write about our tour, and specifically, our tour guide.
We had the great pleasure to take this tour with Rene Suyo. Rene is professional, knowledgeable, pleasent, trustworthy and honestly ,the nicest guy you'll ever meet. He was incredibly patient, helpfull and cheerful. He had answers to any question we had for him, and solution to any problems that came up along the way. He showed us the special plants of the trail, and explained about every interesting thing we came upon. He definitely made the tour a once in a lifetime experience. The tour as a whole was wonderful, felt as if we were worthy of visiting this incredible pice of history, after hiking the 7 amazingly beautiful hours on the Inca trail. Most recomended to anyone who visits the area.

Dear Amitai: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with Valencia Travel Cusco. I´m sure Rene enjoyed attending your queries as much as you enjoyed your trekking. Definitely the 2-Day Short Inca Trail is an excellent alternative for all those who want to experience the Inca trail and enter to Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate, the Machu Picchu sightseeing is amazing. On behalf Rene Suyo and the whole team of Valencia Travel, thank you for letting us be part of your memorable holiday. Looking forward to welcoming you back! Rene Hurtado V. General Manager

Amazing hike and visit to Machu Picchu
May 2019 • Family
We had a fantastic visit to Machu Picchu, everything organized through Valencia Travel. Our guide, Ruben, was terrific all along the way. He was very informative, fun and helpful. He even carried my wife's backpack for a while when she needed to gather her strength during the hike. The hike itself was very strenuous and highly rewarding! I strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to experience the Inca trail but cannot do the full four-day trek. It was incredibly beautiful and we are so glad we got to experience it. Seeing Machu Picchu at both sunset and sunrise was unforgettable!

I also want to give special thanks to Vanessa, our travel adviser at Valencia. She provided clear and quick communication all through the planning before our trip, and she helped make the whole experience easy so we could simply enjoy it and not worry about the details.

Baby Trail with Corina
My sister and I did the two day Inca trail trip and loved. It was exactly what we wanted - enough of a hike but without the time required for the 4 day camping trip. Our guide Corina was fantastic. She’s a true professional in every sense of the word and we not only enjoyed her invaluable wealth of knowledge but her company as well. She completely tailored the experience to what we wanted and it couldn’t have been better. This was our third tour with Valencia in Peru and they exceeded our expectations every time!

Amazing Experience - Great Way To Visit Machu Picchu
Jul 2018 • Couples
My wife and I recently took this trip to start our honeymoon. The 2-day private service was a perfect mix of time on the Inca Trail and within Machu Picchu. Our guide was fantastic and all of the accommodations and the organization of the trip were wonderful. We cannot recommend this experience enough.

Great hike and tour with a great guide!
Apr 2018 • Couples
We started off the night before the hike and met with our tour guide Nicanor at our Hotel in Custco where he explained what we would be doing, answered all of our questions and gave us all of our paperwork and lunches for the next day. Valencia tours picked us up at the hotel the next day and we took a bus and train to the drop off location on the trail. The first day we hiked the trail, saw amazing views, and Nicanor explained all of the trails, ruins, and plant life to us. That night we had dinner with Nicanor where we got to know him and more history of the area. He was an amazing person full of knowledge and stories. The next day we did a tour of Machu Picchu and then Hiked Huayna Picchu. If you are going to take the Bus from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu (which I recommend or you will spend at least 2 hours trying to walk up switchbacks up the Mountain) be prepared to wait for the Bus. Nicanor knew when we needed to get in line for the Bus so we made good timing but there will be a line. It was raining that morning but cleared up once we got to Machu Picchu, be prepared for rains to come in and out. Nicanor was very knowledgeable of the site and its history. If you plan to do the Machu Picchu tour and the Huayna Picchu hike in the same day be prepared to do some moving. You can easily do 1 or the other in a day, we decided to do both in 1 day which proved to be a work out. For Huayna Picchu there are 2 paths, the first path that most people take is up the stairs to the top, then back down the same way. The second path (which will double your time on the mountain), takes you down the back side and around the mountain once you reach the top. If you are in good physical shape I would recommend taking the longer path as it is the only way to see the Moon Temple (takes between 3.5 to 4 hours while the path up and back down takes about 2 hours), make sure to bring water. Our guide knew all the paths and the history of the area since he was a local and grew up in the area which proved to make the experience better. After the hike we went back to the hotel to get our clothes and got on the train to head back to Cusco (the hotel will hold them after you check out so a 2nd night is not necessary unless you want to stay there for fun). The Valencia Tours bus was waiting for us at the Train station and brought us back to the hotel. After a long day of Trekking and walking it was great to have Valencia Tours handle all of the transportation and we could just relax. I would recommend Valencia Tours as a less stressful travel option since they handle all transportation to and from the hotel in Custco which allows you to focus on enjoying yourself. Overall a once in a lifetime experience, I would recommend everyone to do this.

Perfect hike to Machu Picchu
Mar 2018 • Couples
The 2 day hike/tour of Machu Picchu was perfect and well planned. After a day of hiking the hotel in city below Machu Picchu was relaxing -- bring a bathing suit for the hot springs. The guide (Wilbert) was very informative and spoke great English. Valencia travel took care of all the details for us and we had no worries/issues.
