Friendly and knowledgeable guide! We did a tour from Ollantaytambo to Maras salt mines and Moray with Carlitos and Cristobal. Carlitos was very knowledgeable and tailored the tour to what we already knew which was great. They also made the recommendation to start early which was a challenge but well worth it for the absence of crowds!

Great experience with a local guide I highly recommend this agency. We booked a trip with them from Ollantaytambo to Cusco visiting many unique sites of Sacred Valley on our way. Everything was well organised even though we contacted the agency quite late. The agency was very responsive and we kept in touch on WhatsApp all the time. Our guide Carlitos came on time and he was the nicest person ever, very patient with us and ready to take a lot of pictures. We learned a lot about Inca history from him. The whole day was a pleasure. Thank you guys for taking care of us! Thanks to you we fell in love with Peru even more.

Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley My friend and I took the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu tour from Cusco with Come See Peru and the whole trip was fabulous. We had an amazing trip and everything went as planned. Highly recommended!
Kickass personalized tour experience for a solo traveler, A++¥ Awesome company!! I am a solo woman and staying in Ollantaytambo and I wanted a tour package created just for me and they were able to do it. I saw the Maras salt flats, Moray, Pisac market, and Sacsayhuaman and it could not have been a more perfect day! The driver was a very safe driver and the guide spoke excellent English and took great pics. 10/10 recommend, you will not be disappointed!!

Great trip! Carlitos is an excellent guide!! He made our day trip fun and entertaining, he told us many facts from the site and it was amazing, to say the least. I would highly recommend taking a tour with Carlitos! He takes great pictures as well!
Thanks Carlos! Carlos is great tour guide and an excellent photographer. He told many interesting stories during the tour, also made many extra stops at beautiful view point. We really enjoyed the half day private Tour.

Un sueño hecho realidad Estar dentro de la ciudadela es una experiencia irreal, además de poder observar el maravilloso paisaje que hay al rededor, es una mezcla perfecta entre el poder humano y la naturaleza. Todo el recorrido de la mano de nuestro guía Juan Carlos, excelente! Siempre atento y súper profesional 👌

Wow! I totally didn't think we could do Machu Picchu in a day, but it is! The trip was EPIC! It was a full day but it was a blast! Macchu Picchu was incredible - I was weary that it was built up in my head (wonder of the world and all that) it was just wow. and made even more incredible by our guides - they knew the history, stories, and fun facts. They also made it feel like we were just traveling with friends - we loved our guides. highly recommend

The Best Day EVER! My friends and I did a private tour with Come See Peru Tours 1 day to Machu Picchu. It was a fantastic day! We definitely were moving all day (we got all of our steps :) ) But we didn't feel rushed at all - we truly got to enjoy machu picchu and aguas calientes. I enjoyed our tour guide and their stories both fact and myths about Machu Picchu. Highly recommend this tour company
