          They taxi service was outstanding in every way!
          We used them nearly every day because they were all courteous and trustworthy. Highly dependable and came promptly! Lares Trip company makes you feel like family or a friend as they drive you around with care, and we would suggest them to anyone traveling in a group. Still, we recommend them if you are traveling alone because they treat you like family or a friend as they drive you around! Along the way, we also acquired some new information and facts that improved our ability to comprehend the culture. The most reliable taxi service in Cusco City! They can take your reservation for the cab you'll be using. Because the drivers were always knowledgeable about the best routes, we could get to our location within the allotted time. In addition, the vehicles were spotless and well-maintained at all times, making for a pleasant and pleasurable journey every time. It would be impossible for me to offer this taxi service a higher recommendation; they go out of their way to provide their clients with excellent service. Thanks to Richard and Lares trip for their time!

          A great way to see Machu Piccu but a few small issues
          Firstly this was an amazing tour, the local guide was brilliant. However there were a few issues which prevented 5 stars. Firstly this was advertised as a 10 hour tour but in reality started 1 hour earlier and was due to end 3 hours later than stated on the booking. This was only communicated to me at 7pm the evening before too late to change other travel arrangements. Also transfer from hotel to Inca Rail office never arrived but hotel found taxi for me. To be honest the issues including the return train breaking down did not ruin an amazing experience but could distress a more nervous traveller.

          Do not take this tour
          The car driver did not show up for drop off which was part of the schedule. The tour company send WhatsApp message saying ‘we will take a train’ ‘we will take a van’ - there was nobody from the company at the bus station and train station - I had to deal with that on my own. The tour lasted only 2.5 hours. The tour guide had broken English and was hard to understand. The data that tour guide provided were very basic - you can learn more about Machu Picchu by watching a short YouTube video. The trip is also way overpriced - you can go around main square in Cusco there are main travel agencies and tours cost $220.

          The Rainbow Mountain hike - a must-see
          The Rainbow Mountain trek was the most beautiful valley we’ve ever seen in oye life. Our tour guide came to pick us up at the hotel on time and ran everything perfectly. Despite bouts of rainy weather, he timed things so we summited with the sun. The altitude is a real factor here so to help you, the guide gave everyone a nice Jasmin spray to open up our nasal passage and some extra coca pick me up. We had all the usual symptoms of altitude sickness - headache, pressure in the eyes, feeling weak and despite all that I made it because the tour guide was patient and encouraging. I’d say you need 2-3 days of acclimatization before you even think of attempting this - it’s over 16,500ft and roughly 7km or 3 miles return. Even with a tiny elevation gain of 338m/1200ft, you’ll feel it. If you can’t get physically do it, you can rent a horse to take you as well. Along the way are many benches and stops, a bathroom (2 soles), and snack vendors. This is an absolute must-see area if you’re in Peru. Highly recommend this local company and our tour guide,George.

          An Amazing Rainbow Mountain Tour
          My friend and l booked the Rainbow Mountain tour. We had a good experience because the communication was clear about our excursion. We were picked up in our hotel in Cusco also tje drop off was close to the hotel. The tour provided us a nice breakfast and lunch, the group was with 10 participants, the van was very clean and the tour was very informative about the history and culture. We want to thank all the team of our expedition because thanks to them, the group has successfully conquered the colorful peak of Peru!

          We had fantastic expedition to Machu Picchu.
          We had a great time hiking to Machu Picchu with Lares Trip :) Our communication was clear from the biginning to the end. The Trek from Sacred Valley to the natural hot springs was impressive. We saw lakes, sharpy mountains, alpacas, llamas, native people and finished in the hot springs. After finishing the hike, we took prívate car to Ollantaytambo town, then we took train to Machu Picchu village where we spent the night and the last which was day four was to visit Machu Picchu site. Along the expedition, we were with horsemen, chef, assistant chef, and our tour guide Rubén. The crew gave us a great service. The food was impressive, horsemen were very friendly and our tour was very informative. We highly recommend hiking the Lares Trek with this locally owmed company!

          Amazing Lares Trekking to Machu Picchu
          I and my family booked 4 day Lares Trek to Machu Picchu. We did not know what comapny hike with! Likely, we were reading reviews and finally booked with Lares Tripo travel agency. The trip was amazing, our crew had 1 cook, 2 assistant cooks, 3 horsemen and our guide Mauro. The food was excellent prepared by Sebastian, the horsemen very helpful and our tour guide was very informative on the way to Machu Picchu. My family had fantastic time with Lare trip! Thanks.....

        The good moments are to show with people!

        We booked short Inka trail to Machu Picchu with a local company; where the service was detailed very well organised. The guide was very knowledgeable, fantastic views, many inca sites and the box lunch of quinoa was delicious.

        We want highly recommend to book 2 day inca trail with Lares trip because the company is locally owned and direct operator.
