Merveilleux, foncez ! Que dire à part un grand merci. Nous avons contacté l’agence la veille, ils nous ont répondu directement en nous proposant des expéditions sur mesure selon nos envies et nos disponibilités (2 jours d’expéditions : 1. Vallées sacrés des incas et 2. Machu Picchu). Abel s’est rendu disponible pour nous expliquer tous les détails avant le départ et même pendant les expéditions. Nous avons passé deux jours incroyable, tout était planifié, nous n’avions plus qu’à visiter et s’émerveiller. Le tout pour un prix raisonnable ! Nous recommandons ! (Francais 22 & 26 ans)

Caminatas divertidas Hicimos el combo de montaña 7 colores + auzangate en dos días y fue una experiencia muy bonita. Ambas caminatas tienen vistas espectaculares y en la de auzangate hay animalitos silvestres, vale la pena ir. Gracias a el guía Jhon y el conductor Edilberto por su amabilidad y buena energía.

El dia estaba hermoso, soleado y agradable. Llovio justo cuando el tour termino. Jaime, el guia, fue muy amable y muy experto. Al principio, empezo el guia un poco rapido pero despues se relantizo un poco. El fue tan amable Que me ofrecio un gorro para protejerme del sol. Al fin de acabo, fue un paseo maravilloso.
