Our memories of our day at Machu Picchu will last a lifetime and Edwin's kindness, patience, and great information were essential to making that happen. He was extremely helpful and responsive prior to our arrival answering our many questions. At Machu Picchu, he was warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable -- knowing exactly how to time our program, take us to the most interesting spots, avoid the worst crowds, and making my children (ages 5 and 10) feel right at home.

My friends and I had taken a day tour with Edwin and booked return transportation with him the following day. We had changed our train tickets to a different time and Edwin was flexible in being able to accommodate to the change. He was very nice and professional. I would definitely recommend Edwin for a tour or group transportation!

Edwin was marvelous. He was incredibly knowledgeable and very well spoken. His English is very good and we learned so much from him. He understood our pace, and interests and we moved at a good safe pace and didn't miss anything. He was patient when I needed to rest s but more. We climbed Huayna Picchu, Machu Picchu, Inti Punku and visited the citadel in one 11 hour day. Was THE best vacation day!! Edwin is super!

We had already toured with Edwin for two days through the Sacred Valley so we knew the high quality of tour that we were to have through Machu Picchu. Edwin met us at the bus station in Agua Calientes right on time and then we spent the afternoon thoroughly walking around Machu Picchu, learning so much about the Incas. It was the best decision to use Tours By Locals.
Edwin did a good job. Loved the whole trip. Highly recommend this trip and this guide to anyone going to Machu Picchu and Cusco. Very knowledgeable and personable. Really enjoyed it.

Alison HorowitzUnited States
Edwin is absolutely outstanding and a guided trip to Machu Picchu would not have been the same without him. We spent over 6 hours with Edwin at Machu Picchu and the time flew by because we were having so much fun. Edwin is intelligent, personable, funny, and an outstanding photographer on an iPhone, he captured some amazing photographs of us. I HIGHLY recommend Edwin for Machu Picchu and any other Cusco/Sacred Valley tour. Our Peru trip would not have been the same without him! He truly deserves 5+ stars!
Edwin is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable in the relevant material and also well-educated overall. He helped and advised us in building our trip in advance. With well-spoken English, his presentment style is very relaxed and friendly, which made me and my friend very comfortable and allowed us to comprehend and absorb information. We happy we had Edwin as our private guide exploring major Inca site and Lake Titikaka, including pre-Inca archaeological sites, and we would absolutely recommend him.

Edwin's knowledge was exceptional. He was able to answer all our questions, not only about the tour we were on, but Peruvian way of life, political system, teachers' strike, etc. When we discussed choices for lunch, he took us to a local roadside establishment, giving us an authentic experience. The best thing was that Edwin understands the tour companies' schedules, allowing us to be at the sites without too many crowds. This made the day very enjoyable. We loved the weaving demonstration too.

Very good, customized tour of Machu Picchu by Edwin who dealt with our five-person family group including grandparents and a 6-year old child. He answered all our questions, made special efforts to include our grandchild, and dealt with old and stiff knees of the grandparents. Edwin is knowledgeable, efficient, and very personable. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Edwin did a tremendous job during this tour. He has an extremely high degree of knowledge on the subject on Machu Picchu, overall Inca civilization, the the Spanish conquests. His local experience is also quite valuable. Edwin is very fluid in his English communications, which was important to my wife and me. He was very flexible and adaptable to the needs of me and my wife.

Carol DavisTEXAS, United States
Edwin was a fantastic guide. His English is fluent...not advanced. Everyone in our group had no problems with his communication. He was very cooperative and when we asked him to extend our tour to transfers to and from the Cusco airport with city tour he was right on time and very professional. He took us to see various areas of Cusco and even suggested a Incan restaurant...we loved it. Our train/bus ride to Cusco was great. Everything was fantastic...including Edwin. He is a perfect guide for Peru!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol, Thanks for your high rating and kind words. It was my pleasure to being your guide and show my country in great way! I will be here for everybody who want to meet and consider me for their guide in Peru, specially my region. As a local guide I have a lot to share and show. Edwin Cusi

We had a wonderful tour yesterday. Edwin was extremely well informed and his information was presented in an interesting manner. His command of the English language was excellent.

Edwin put together a great one-day tour for me, and his descriptions of the features of Machu Picchu were very interesting.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your rating Jacqueline, the local knowledge the best, what we think and how our local scholars defend their theories after arduous studies! I will be happy to do the tour again as in other places!

We had a wonderful tour of Machu Picchu with Edwin. He was very informative and spoke excellent English. Truly a day to remember! The McCrone Family
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are welcome any time if you return to Cusco, as well as your kids; Thanks your your high rating!
Edwin is an excellent tour guide. Punctual, polite, friendly, informative, etc. Our Machu Picchu day tour went smoothly. In my opinion, Machu Picchu is the most captivating place in South America. Edwin, all the best to you, and hope to see you again in the future. P.S. Inca people are very beautiful, can't understand why the Spanish were so cruel 600 hundred years ago.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your appreciation and trusted me, I hope you will come back at some point, Greetings and blessings for you all.
