A very enjoyable and informative tour around Cusco. A great way to spend a day, Bryan was super company and imparted his knowledge about Cusco & Peru fluently and with enthusiasm. I have already recommended Bryan & the tour to a friend. I am only disappointed I hadn't discovered Tours By locals when I visited Kathmandu a few years ago!
