Raul made our visit to Cusco memorable. He is knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects from local culture, history, to agriculture, music and food. His tour was quite flexible and made adjustments to the published itinerary once learning our interests. One very memorable moment came on our visit to Moray, where halfway down into the terraces he took out his flute and played a mesmerizing folk tune. You could see how all visitors in the area stopped to listen to him. He's a wonderfully personable guide!

The whole day was a real pleasure. Raul is a perfect, very experienced, patient guide, who knows more than we ever imagined about places, history, astronomy, plants, food, agriculture, ancient culture - it was very informative. We asked Raul to change the program slightly and everything was possible. The sacred valley was blooming, we were overwhelmed by its beauty.

Raul customized an excellent day for our family of 7, consisting of grandparents to 1-year-old. The tour was paced perfectly for our energy and interests. He was well-prepared with documents, props and hands-on demonstrations to engage the kids and illustrate the beauty of the Sacred Valley and it's people. I highly recommend this guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Lesli, I'm very happy to check your review!!! Thanks one again for your visit!!! Raul!!!

Raul was really wonderful. He picked us up at the airport and took us on a one day tour in the sacred valley. It was the highlight of our 2 week trip. He is very knowledgeable,enthusiastic,spoke good English and worked very hard to be sure the itinerary we requested was accomplished in a comfortable fashion and a nice pace. He succeeded in all respects. I would hire him again in a minute and highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: There Terron, More than others I really appreciate your review!!! Thank you so much for touring my land!!! It is the best on my job to keep that memories on people who visit Cusco and love my country like you!!! Cordially, RAUL

Overall, Raul was nice and we learned a lot. On our confirmation, it was only noted that we had to pay admission to Moray so we were surprised we had to pay extra for admissions. I also wish I was told to buy the tourist ticket in Cuzco because admission to Pisac ruins would have been half the cost of that ticket. Since we paid an extra $60 for Pisac to be included in the tour, I was disappointed we didn't make it before dark b/c Raul took us to Pisac market even after I said I wanted the ruins first
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the feedback.By booking my tour you agreed that entrance fees (Moray, Salt pans & Pisac)were not included except the Machu Pichu excursions.I also state on my tours that lunch and personal expenses are to be paid locally by the traveller. In regards to the price of the Tourist Cusco ticket(BTG),the price is the same anywhere in Cusco or around the sights. The reason we arrived late in the Pisac Inca site is because you spend more time on the jewelry store in Pisac village than planned. Raul

Raul customized our tour so that it exceeded all expectations. We wanted to understand and learn as much as possible about local culture. He explained and demonstrated how and why things worked the way they did. His passion for understanding local culture and sharing that knowledge is unsurpassed by any other guide I've used. Tom
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your communication and comments Thomas. That's very important for me and for my job!!! Thank you for your visit! RAUL
