This was an excellent tour that Bryan customized for us to cover a wide range of experiences in Cusco and Manchu Picchu. He is very knowledgeable, professional and pleasant to be around. During the trekking, we enjoyed the luxuries of our gear being carried by horses, camps set up for us before arrival and an excellent chef. The time we spent in an Andean village in the home of a local family, was a memorable immersion experience that we will cherish for years. We highly recommend using Bryan!
