Best Private Tour Guide Machu Picchu, Quillabamba, Sacred Valley Peru!
The Best Private Guide Extraordinaire! We were nervous to go on this trip with Covid, but Hernan assured me it was safe to come, and yes - we felt and were very safe here. I highly recommend coming now and missing the crowds - it is wonderful!

Hernan will customize your trip to suit your interests and help with everything you need along the way. We wanted to go off the beaten track and see more of LOCAL life in Peru. Hernan arranged a fantastic set of experiences for us in the Quillabamba region - an amazing lunch with a welcoming LOCAL family and then a tour of their farm. This was such a great experience. On this same leg of the trip we visited an amazing waterfall - had it all to ourselves to swim in and visited a hot spring to soak in. We also toured a coffee plantation with another LOCAL farmer and spent the day harvesting, preparing, roasting, and then drinking fresh coffee and chocolate! Amazing!

And of course, Hernan is the best local guide in the region to show you the caves, waterfalls, historic sites, relate the culture today to its roots, and brings a breadth of knowledge about the local flora and fauna. From where to stay to where and what to eat - he’s got all that all!

Even with all the Covid requirements to enter the country - it is easy breezy once you arrive. There is no need to retest once you enter the country (despite information I saw beforehand saying that you needed to do this or quarantine) nor to quarantine. The Peruvian people are very diligent about observing masking, distancing, and hygienic aspects of Covid.

Don’t wait until the crowds return - come on down now!

You may contact Hernan via email (have to write it in parts for it to be listed here) at hernanhermoza77 at @hotmail.com or via WhatsApp at +51 989 562 030

Virtual tour of Machu Picchu with Hernan Hermoza Gamarra
Jan 2021
As we cannot travel at present, my daughter booked a 'virtual tour' of Machu Picchu for me with Hernan Hermoza Gamarra yesterday. It was a wonderful experience! Hernan was so friendly and knowledgable, and provided us with a wealth of information about Machu Pichu, well illustrated with photographs, maps and diagrams. He told us about the history and geography of the area, and showed us around the ruins and also showed artefacts found there. He really took a lot of trouble and gave us generously of his time and expertise.
Hernan is a local man and normally a tour guide, but due to the pandemic there have been very few tourists, so he put his knowledge to excellent use in taking us on this very enjoyable 'virtual' tour. I thoroughly recommend people to take a 'tour' with Hernan. It made me look forward to the future, when maybe we can ask him to take us there in reality! Thank you Hernan!

Virtual Machu Picchu tour with Hernan
I arranged a virtual tour of Machu Picchu for my mums birthday as we are stuck in lockdown and she has always wanted to visit. I am so glad that we booked it and would recommend it even if you aren't in lockdown. Hernan was so brilliant, great communication and flexible approach to the tour, he asked what my mum would want to hear about and tailored the tour accordingly. He was so knowledgeable about the history and the geography and showed us some incredible photos. We all found the talk extremely interesting and got to understand a bit about Hernan's life and where he lives. The ability to sit in our own respective homes in London and get taken completely to a world in Peru was so special. I'd definitely recommend the tour to anyone who wants to learn about Machu Picchu and life in Peru, and to support a small independent business which is totally reliant on tourism. Thanks Hernan!

Hernan Hermoza - Tour Guides Peru Machupicchu
Sep 2019 • Couples
Hernan exceeded all our expectations. Don’t look any further for the perfect guide in Peru.
This trip was for our 30th anniversary. From beginning to end he thoughtfully helped to custom plan a very special experience for us. I told him what we wanted to see and the amount of time we had. He took care of transportation, bought all our entrance tickets in advance, etc. Everything went very smoothly. We especially appreciated his effort to give us authentic local experiences (hikes, food, weaving, lama blessing) and his ability to keep us away from the crowds. Outstanding service, great communication, wonderful tours of Machu Picchu, Cusco and the surrounding areas and exceptional insight to the Incan traditions and culture. We could not be more pleased with our memorable experience. Hernan is more than a local guide, he will be a life long friend.
If he doesn’t respond immediately be patient he might be out on the Inca Trail.

Hernan Gamarra is absolutely the best!
Jul 2019 • Friends
We would not have asked for a better tour guide than Hernan. His attention to detail with our many desires and questions was outstanding. Our time spent there was well planned out as he took care of details we didn’t even know how to ask about. Our experience was rich and wonderful.

Guide for Machu Picchu
Jul 2019 • Family
We contacted Hernan in March to enquire about his availability to guide us at Machu Picchu in July and although not available himself, he arranged for Roberto to be our Guide. Roberto was waiting at the train steps when we arrived in Aguas Calientes Calientes and was very helpful in taking us through the bus system up to MP.

We received very helpful advice from Roberto and he took us on a great walk up to the Inti Punku (Sun Gate) where the views back down the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu were fantastic. We had bought tickets to climb the Montana Machu Picchu but the walk up to Inti Punku was more suitable for our timings and was more than enough!

We learned a great decal from Roberto about the Incas, the different theories about the site, and about its history.

We would definitely recommend Roberto as a guide and thank you Hernan for arranging this for us.

This is the tour you want when visiting Cusco / Sacred Valley / Machu Picchu!
Jun 2019 • Family
When my Uncle and I started planning out our trip we found this company with Hernan. To be honest, we were a little apprehensive at first, but we are both really glad we went with him. Hernan started us with basic recommendation of where we should go and do based on our length of stay, June 2nd - 9th. We had certain criteria that we wanted and he was very flexible with helping us to achieve that. We stayed in touch using email to plan the whole trip and ask questions.

Due to our timing Hernan couldn't be our personal guide, but he would have someone else guide us, again a little apprehensive, but did not turn out to be an issue. We did meet Hernan on the first day to go over the trip.

Through our Tour of Cusco - Sacred Valley we had Edgar. He picked us up with a Private driver so he could talk to us directly and answer any questions we had.
In Aguas Caliente / Machu Picchu we had Roberto, he actually lives there and gave us a really informative look at Machu Picchu.

At anytime during this tour, if we wanted to stop and take a photo or wanted to add a small pit stop they accommodated for us. In fact we really appreciated Edgar suggesting to stop at little shops to try the local cuisine. The small things like taking different roads back than the way we came were also really appreciated.

All of our guides spoke great English and were easy to understand. My uncle is hard of hearing and had no issues.

What really made this tour is the customization, we wanted to book our own hotels / air fair. Hernan accommodated us by picking us up at every hotel airport we chose ready to go for our tour.

To say the least, please consider contacting Hernan to plan a tour, you won't be any less than happy when you are done.
