Wilfredo arrived on time to pick us up from the hotel. The car was spacious and clean. He was flexible with us considering we were traveling with a baby and made sure we were all comfortable and happy throughout the tour. Wilfredo was knowledgeable about the Sacred Valley and the places we visited. Unfortunately we were unable to taste guinea pig because we fell asleep in the car on the way back to the hotel. We really enjoyed our tour with Wilfredo.
