    This is a beautiful place to enjoy in cuscop, it is a place where you relax and you can think about many things, it gives you the peace you need, along the way you learn, meet and discover new things that you will not find anywhere else.

    Bioandean Expeditions and their team put in a lot of effort to make this trip better. We really wanted to see the lagoon but a little worried about the altitude. Jhoel the guide convinced us and always walked with us assuring us and encouraging us, he did a tremendous job to make this something special
    .This is the first excursion we did when we arrived in Cusco and it was an incredible experience. The views are spectacular and the turquoise lagoon is truly wonderful. The whole day trip was well worth it and we highly recommend travelers not to miss out on this hidden gem.

    A building that shows the fusion between both worlds, Inca and colonial architecture... a square full of life, a place of architectural encounters. A good place if you are in the city of Cusco.

    If you are reading these reviews to help you decide whether to do the Inca Trail or not, stop thinking and book with Terra Quechua Peru right away. It will be one of the best things you've ever done. You will see so much beauty that you never imagined your eyes could behold, you will cross some physical barriers that will teach you about your own incredible strength, and you will bond with all those you are blessed to walk this path with. The weather was fantastic. We ate like kings thanks to our amazing chef and porters who brought the food, tents and supplies... :)
    This was the adventure of a lifetime and every time I close my eyes to remember parts of the hike, I smile. I will always remember it, so I will give Terra Quechua my best recommendations.

    Very gorgeous! It is very centrally located so you will most likely see it when you're in Cusco. A gorgeous square that felt very safe and had some good restaurants/stores very central to it.

    Being new visiting Peru, we went with the guys from the Bioandean Expeditions agency who in a previous tour gave the confidence to continue touring with them.
    once again surprised with the wonders that Cusco keeps inside.
    The route, the walk, the landscape, everything is really impressive, you feel grateful to life for giving you the opportunity to see so many wonders.

    The first day, I just saw this cathedral from the outside. Honestly, that might have been enough. The second day, we went inside. There is SO much history and there are lots of neat artifacts to enjoy. Definitely go inside.

    This is such a nice Ancient build, it shows a clear example that the Incas were incredible architects and made unbelievable templos around the city centre.
    Our guide show us each templo and explained all the history.

    I loved this tour, I can say that it is one of my best travel experiences and that it did not seem as commercial a tour as others in Peru. The Bioandean Expeditions agency is very good, they gave us a great service, they came to look for us quite punctually between 3:00 am and 3:30 am, that allowed us to be one of the first groups to climb the mountain, breakfast and lunch were delicious and the price of everything is worth it.
    The way to this place is full of incredible views, I did the "short" way, an hour there and an hour and a half back, walking next to a mountain that shone with its different colors and also next to a beautiful snowy I recommend very comfortable clothes, shoes with grip, bring water, something to eat (cereal bar and nuts). On the way up it doesn't feel that cold but at the top it gets really cold and the wind is strong so I suggest wearing a hat and gloves and a good jacket for those who think they need them, the mountain is absolutely beautiful!

    Wonderful place ideal to go with the family, it is a kind of mini zoo of llamas and alpacas, on visits to the place there is a local guide who explains to you about the upbringing and the destination of its precious wool.

    The entrance fee is included in the tourist ticket. You can spend 4 or 5 hours here.
    Try to arrive early to avoid tours.
    One of the most important works of irrigation on terraces of the Incas

    The explanations in English are good. They could make an English version of the 5 minute movie in the beginning. They have McReynolds few artifacts compared with the Larco museum in Lima but what they have is very fine. The lady in the front desk was very nice and courteous.
