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.

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!!

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

Travel Guide
The archaeological site of Pisac is located in the province of Calca district of Pisac, in the time of the Incas Pisac was basically a crucial place where different food was produced as well as corn, potato, quinoa and others. But what do we know before the arrival of the Incas? Pisac was already inhabited by much older civilizations than the Incas, however, there is not much evidence of them, today the archaeologists summarize our history just talking about the Inca civilization, but we must know that in the archaeological site of Pisac we can find different monuments especially megalithic or gigantic constructions made by civilizations that no longer existed a long time ago. In our Sacred Valley tour you will learn more about this amazing place with our local guides.
Pisac handicraft market

The artisan market of Pisac attends every day. On Sundays, the market brings more merchants. It is the most traditional market in Peru.

Town of Urubamba

Urubamba is the largest town in the Sacred Valley. It has several tourist attractions. There you rest for a moment to enjoy a buffet lunch.

Archaeological site of Ollantaytambo

In the fortress of Ollantaytambo survive temples, enclosures and various Inca constructions with great similarity to Machu Picchu.

The Inca site of Ollantaytambo was a religious place in the time of the Incas but if we explore the whole complex we will notice that there were different periods of different civilizations that built Ollantaytambo, in Ollantaytambo we have enough evidence of megalithic constructions that date from before the arrival of the Incas, also you will visit the temple of the sun with its giant blocks that were placed perfectly in place and are still visible today. This place is definitely a must see during your Sacred Valley tour.

Archaeological site of Chinchero

The archaeological site of Chinchero is located at 3760 meters above sea level 35 kilometers from the city of Cusco, the beautiful chinchero part of its archaeological site is the exact combination between the constructions of the Inca era and the constructions during the time of the Spanish conquest, Chinchero has always been characterized for being a picturesque town with a lot of tradition and history, the people of Chinchero still wear the typical clothes of the Inca era and the language is still spoken by most of its population, chinchero also has its textile centers where you can interact uniquely with local families and learn from them.

Chinchero Textile Center
