We hired David for multiple tours and services; airport pickup, Cusco tour, transport to hotel in Urubamba, Sacred Valley Tour, Salt Pan and Moray tour, and transportation to the airport. This spanned parts of four days and the total fee was $530. This was for three people and full transportation services.
Our desire was to have someone “take care of us” while we were in Cusco and the Sacred Valley. That is exactly what David did and we could not be happier. David is a wealth of Inca knowledge. If you desire to be immersed in Inca culture, David is the guy you should hire. He loves Inca history and has so much information you cannot absorb it all. Logistically, he replied promptly, was professional in the deposit and payment areas and delivered as expected.
If you read the forums, you will see that David has had a few instances of sending a substitute. That happened to us on day 3. I was initially very upset, but the substitute guide, his cousin Rojo, was fantastic. In fact, for what we had planned, he was probably better than David would have been. He took us to a hidden temple for a great hike and to a non-touristy place to eat. I felt we got an authentic Inca and Peruvian experience with Rojo.
David’s great reviews are justified and we are happy we hired him. I think his success, however, has challenged his management skills. As long as you know this going in, you will be OK. David and his cousin were fantastic and we were very happy with the tour. Please be clear in your expectations and you will be happy you hired him.
