We had David for 3 days during our visit to Cusco and he was wonderful. Very helpful and completely tailored the vacation to our preferences. Good english (but not perfect) and very knowledgeable about Cusco and the Sacred Valley. Felt great to support a local who was born and raised in the valley. Service was very professional and communications were... More

David was with us for three days including our visit to Machu Picchu. It started with a pickup for the 8 of us at the Cusco airport and then to the city center to see the church and other Cusco sites. One in our group became ill with altitude sickness but David was prepared and after a brief interruption, we... More

David helped organize a Chocolatada experience for our family where we took hot chocolate, bread and gifts to a remote village for Christmas. He contracted with a local baker to provide nearly 500 loves of bread and also procured hundreds of toys. With two minivans loaded with food and toys, David and his driver and helpers took our family high... More

Just spent the day on a customized private tour with David. He is highly professional and extremely knowledgeable. He worked with us to create an itinerary that suit our needs and wants - we spent as long (or as short) as we wished at each sight. My husband and I are not market people so we skipped all of that.... More

We hired David for tour of some Sacred Valley sites on our way back to Cusco from Ollantaytambo. We emailed back and forth a lot before the tour and he was always responsive and willing to change the itinerary at the last minute (we even modified it the day before). Our day with David was a spectacular day. He has... More

Initially we were skeptical about engaging a personal guide in Peru as we used to be self-sufficient travelers but in our research about Peru could see it is a near necessity to engage a personal guide for the best experience in the country. The main reasons for this rationale being the need of a know-how help in this history rich... More

I found David via tripadvisor, so it's only appropriate that I give back to this community :) We had a fantastic time - prior to the trip, David was very responsive in helping us craft an itinerary that was customized to our interests. Deep knowledge, patient, and very professional. He met us directly at the hotel at the agreed upon... More

We booked a one-day Sacred Valley tour with David and were so thrilled that we did! David was excellent about quickly returning emails and answering any questions. On the day of the tour, our guide was Jaime and we had a wonderful day learning about the Sacred Valley and it's history. Jaime's English is excellent and he knew the places... More

I HATE (note the capital letters) group tours with all my heart. But at the same time, I don't like using those guide books while traveling alone, since I ask a lot of questions during tours. Since I wanted to travel alone, needed a safe ride in the Sacred Valley, and was looking for a good tour guide, David fit... More
