I added a visit to Cusco to fill a bucket list item on the back end of a work trip. I knew I was already going to be in Peru for a week with work and didn’t have the time to plan another part of the trip. I put my trust in Cachi to take care of everything I needed once I got to Cusco, and they did! They were very communicative and answered all my questions. David met us at our hotel Sunday night in Cusco and explained the next three days. We had Hernando pick us up first thing Monday and take us to Sacred Valley, Aguas Calientes, and Machu Picchu.
Hernando was great! Fluent in English, new history, and fun facts about the places we visited, and even went above by waiting in line for us to make sure we were on an early bus for sunrise at MP. He helped with my friend’s backpack (carrying up the hike) and knew all the “picture spots”.
Thank you, Cachi!!!
