What a great tour and I owe it all to my excellent guide, Edwin, and the driver Gido. They took excellent care of me and made sure I saw the best of Cusco and Machu Picchu. Edwin is a great guide. He is knowledgeable, professional while being very affable and friendly. I have travelled all over the world and used guides often. Not saying they weren't excellent but Edwin is one of the best. I highly recommend him and his tours and cannot say enough good things. It has been a highlight of my world travels.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Greg, Thank you very much for your high rating and recommendation. It is really rewarding to know that my customers enjoyed my tour. I am very happy that you enjoyed my tour. Indeed, I did enjoy a lot of your particular sense of humor too. I will be here ready to do deliver again another great tour. Edwin Cusi

Last week I traveled with my sister through Peru including the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. I am a 38 year old man that can speak basic Spanish and my sister is 27 years of age with no expertise in the language both from the United States. We had the BEST time with Edwin as our guide. We did two tours with him while in Peru and his companionship as well as knowledge of these sites was invaluable and truly made the experience incredible. He is funny, down to Earth, and very intelligent. BOOK HIM!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Matthew, Thank you very much for your kind words and high rating, it is really rewarding to know that you had a great time during our tours, I had an amazing time with you both too. I will be keeping doing my tours as great as we had. If one day I come to the USA, I will let you know to meet you again. Please forward my greetings to Molly, Edwin Cusi

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.

Edwin made history come alive! He took the time to explain the importance of the sites we visited and to help us understand the events that helped shape Peru's history. He was truly the best guide you could ask for - we asked a lot of questions and he was able to answer all of them and even elaborate further on important events. He was on time and attentive to detail, while also being laid back and ready to go with the flow for our interests! Thanks Edwin!

We are from New Zealand and have nearly zero Spanish, but we thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Edwin, who was a ready source of high quality knowledge in a very wide range of areas of our interest. We would thoroughly recommend him to other English Speaking travellers in particular, but I'm sure his caring approach would work for all.

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.

I would be amazed if there is a more qualified and professional guide in Peru than Edwin. I am amazed at the breadth and depth of his knowledge on history, geography, local custom -- you name it and his intelligence shines. Our tour of the Sacred Valley and Matchu Picchu was first rate in every way. He was very careful to slow down the pace to accommodate the older (and out of shape) person in our party but made sure we saw everything. You will not go wrong with selecting Edwin. He cares deeply.
