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 is awesome! Of the many guides we have known over the years, Raul stands out as the best ever. A true expert in all areas of Pervuan culture and history. A full day visiting Cusco and surrounding areas with Raul did not come close to scratching the surface of his knowledge. Raul, I'm sure you will understand when I say that we dream about ceri mayos!! Thank you for sharing both your knowledge and you passion for and love of Peru.

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.

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!

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!

Raul was the X factor that made an amazing trip to Peru an emotional and psychological adventure. He is a gentle man whose passion and pride for his Incan heritage is only matched by the depth of knowledge that he has acquired over the years. It was like an experiential undergraduate course on Peruvian/Incan culture. At the same time, he was very sensitive to the fact that it was our experience and knew exactly when to let us just take it in. Also, an accomplished musician. Highly recommended!

He met us right on time and led us through a great day of sights, food, experience and learning. Raul knows so much about the Sacred Valley, the people and the history, and spoke with great passion.

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

We also visited the Sacred Valley, a local market, silver shop, an animal sanctuary and a textile demonstration. We had a delicious lunch at a true local restaurant and enjoyed chatting about how he came to have such fabulous English speaking skills.
