We would like to thank Raul for the absolutely wonderful guide service that he provided for us for the four days were at Cusco and Machupicchu. His knowledge of the Inca culture and evident passion for Peru and its history made our tour amazing. The transportation and the drivers were first class and when Raul had to leave us for one day because of medical reasons his back up guide Walter also provided excellent service. We visited all the major Inca sites. Thanks so much Raul.

Tour delivered as negotiated originally. Everything went smoothly, and as planned. Raul was an excellent guide, but only able to remain with us for the first days. His replacement, Jhon, was absolutely excellent too. The vehicles in which we travelled were comfortable and in good condition. All scheduled time appointments were kept without any failures. The knowledge of the guides was thorough and each carried a useful notebook with reference material that helped respond to questions we had.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: 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.

Raul provides a fantastic tour! He is exceptionally knowledgeable on a wide variety of topics...from astronomy, organic farming, Inka culture, natural medicines and more. He was also great in scheduling our tours...keeping us free of large crushes of tourists. But he is also highly flexible and happy to adjust a tour based on your interests and restrictions. Raul is very personable. He is also very dedicated. I can't recommend him highly enough. You will have a great tour if Raul is your guide.

Having Raul for our guide was the highlight of the trip! He brought the history of the Incas to life. His knowledge of the Inca's spiritual, architectural and astronomical was incomparable! We loved Peru; the food, chocolate, and empanadas, the mountains, valleys and rivers, and especially the Peruvian people!

Wow! I have been around the world and have had many guides -- and I can honestly say that Raul has been the most amazing guide ever! He is super knowledgeable, not just about the basics of Inca culture but about local life and insider aspects of that area. We spend 3 hours in the local market where he introduced us to so many amazing experiences that we never experienced in other markets across the world. We left Peru not only so more educated, but also with a great friend! Grab Raul if he is available!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Scott! Thank a lot for your review!!! Hope you and your family learn & experience a lot about my culture and my country! Greetings from Cusco-Peru!!! RAUL CASTELO
