Edwin did a fantastic job of customizing tours for us during our time in Cusco. His driver Mario was amazing (I don't know how anyone drives in Cusco!). For our first five days, we got to see so many different sites and also got to experience Inti Raymi firsthand! Edwin was knowledgeable and worked with us to give us exactly what we wanted and he made my husband very happy!!
