Edwin was absolutely wonderful! My boyfriend and I could not have asked for a better tour guide to show us around Cusco and the area's surrounding ruins. Edwin was extremely knowlegable on both the history of Cusco and the Incan empire. But more importantly, Edwin was personable and lovely to spend time with - it felt like we were exploring the city with an old friend rather than a tour guide. I would HIGHLY recommend Edwin to anyone visiting Cusco! I couldn't imagine our trip being the same without him!
Mark MeldenUnited States
Edwin was our tour guide and he was excellent, well versed in the culture and history of Peru. He was flexible and took us to other sites off the normal path. He spoke English incredibly well and articulated some of the more complex ideas surrounding Peru and its' people. I would recommend Edwin and Tours by Locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mark, Thanks for your review, your high rating and your satisfaction of my tour, it is really my reward. Any time, Edwin Cusi

Everyone in our group had a great time with Edwin. He was on time, had a good driver for our vehicle, and is very knowledgeable regarding Inca and Cusco history. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jane, Thank you very much for your high rating and letting me take in this tour which was great. It was very nice to have been met you and made your days in my country memorable. Anytime you want to return I will be ready to make again another epic tour. Edwin Cusi
The whole preparation was excellent! Edwin was very helpful before we got to Cusco, on time to pick us up and very knowledgable during the tour. He took good care of us and a change of the schedule on the fly was no problem due to his flexibility. All our questions were answered. I can fully recommend him to everyone! He has a very friendly and open personality, simply a nice guy.

Tamara GrubbUnited States
We had an amazing tour with Edwin. He is knowledgeable, friendly and an excellent guide. This tour was listed as a driving tour but we wanted to hike it and Edwin accommodated us with a great day of hiking. We also went to Machu Picchu and are so glad that we did this tour first - there are a lot more ruins to see than just Machu Picchu! Thanks Edwin!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank your very much Tamara, I was my pleasure being your guide and spent some time together, and I appreciate very much your nice words, which actually compromise me even more to continue with good job guiding and making the trips Memorable for every body who go with me.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Weyman, Thanks for your high rating, it was a pleasure have been your guide in Cusco. Anytime you come back, always you will be very welcome to my city. Best regards, Edwin Cusi
A great tour to start off your visit to Cuzco! Edwin was a fantastic guide, was on time and arranged very comfortable private transportation between the different sites. Highlights were definitely the Inca sites over the Colonial sites but that is just a personal preference. Edwin provided me with a wealth of information on the history of the city in and surrounding areas. As well as informative, Edwin was also fun to hang out with and I fully recommend this and his other tours (see my other reviews
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marc, Thank you very much for the 5 stars Rating!!! any time you come back to Peru, you have one Peruvian friend more!
Reginald BellUnited States
We were not able to have Edwin; instead he sent Percy. Percy is a fantastic guide - he took us on a Cusco city /surrounding tour on the day we arrived, including walking from Tambomachay to Sacsayhuaman. Percy was not only incredibly knowledgeable but a delight to be with, and showed us many things we would never have discovered or known about without the personal guidance. We actually liked Percy enough we used his services on a second day to do the Sacred Valley - from 8:30 am to 7:00 pm!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Reginald, Thanks for your high rating, glad to heard you had great experience. we are very Professionals.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are glad to hear that things went great with Percy. In the unusual case where a guide can't personally deliver a tour, the traveler is notified in advance and given the opportunity to cancel or accept the substitute.
We were so glad that we had Edwin as our guide, he was a pleasure to be around and his knowledge of the Inca Empire gave a wonderful background and understanding of what we were seeing. Thank you Edwin, it would not have been the same without you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for trusting and your high rating.
