Trip Advisor Reviews

Come See Peru has earned TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for consistently receiving 5-star reviews of our tours in Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu tours. This recognition highlights our exceptional service and dedicated attention to our clients.

Private tour of moray, Maras, ollaytamtambo and pisac Highly recommend this company - Carlos was a great guide, perfect English, passionate about his work and gave us many insights during our two days of guidance. We liked the first day so much that we booked another day with him. Cristobal the driver was lovely & friendly too and drove safely and well. The ruins were so much more interesting and rewarding with Carlos' knowledge. He took us to the less touristy parts of the ruins and provides architecture insights and history background as well. We also got lots of good food tips from him too and information about Peru and the Cusco region. We were initially hesitant in booking as it seems a bit expensive; however we would recommend that you just go ahead and book your tour! It's great and really worth it!

Outstanding Private Tour with Come See Peru We did a half day tour of the Sacred Valley, Moray, and Maras Salt Mines from Ollantaytambo with Carlos and Mario and they were outstanding and knowledgeable. Booking the tour was easy and they were very responsive to answer all my questions. They were right on time to pick us up from the hotel and their planning was perfect as we missed most of the crowd when we visited Moray and Maras Salt Mines. Carlos is professional, kind, passionate, and extremely knowledgeable. Having both of them who knew all the ins and outs of the area also take care to make sure we enjoyed ourselves made the entire trip memorable.

Wonderful and Productive Private Tour Wonderful tour by Carlos and superb driving by Mario. We were looking for transportation options from Ollantaytambo to Cusco, so figured why not get a tour out of it. No regrets. Enjoyed seeing Ollantaytambo and Moray ruins, Maras Salt Mines, and Pisac. They were very flexible with the start time. And not to mention, Carlos is an excellent storyteller and an amazing photographer. I highly recommend tours by this operator. Cheers!

Amazing tri to Rainbow Mountain What an amazing experience! I decided last minute to go see Rainbow Mountain and wanted it to be a special experience. Juan Carlos organized everything, making sure I was comfortable with the hike, the trip and the food for the day. My guide Matt was very knowledgeable, told me so many stories, shared traditions, essential oils and made the experience unforgettable. The drive was long but very comfortable, the food was really good and the views are just magical. The kindness of all people involved made the trip even more special. Thank you!

Best tour ever! Best tour ever!! ComeSeePeru brought us around the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu over three days from Urubamba. Carlos, our guide, was excellent, informative and knowledgeable - he took care to plan our schedule so we visited each site at the least crowded times. Mario, our driver, was also very skilled, and the van was very spacious and comfortable. Carlos and Mario went above and beyond to make our Sacred Valley experience a great one. We were sadly down with food poisoning, and Carlos helped with altitude sickness medicine and tea and drove us to the nearest pharmacies to get medicine. When we were tired after having to walk to the Moray ruins due to a road closure, Mario also drove up by a separate route to meet us by the end point, so we wouldn’t have to walk back again. All in all, ComeSeePeru made our honeymoon experience in Peru an amazing one! 100% would recommend for anyone looking for a thoughtful, well planned and insightful tour in the Sacred Valley.

Unforgettable experience with Come See Peru We had such a great time in Peru due to “Come See Peru”. Our guide Carlos and Driver Mario, took care of us like our family. We did 5 days tour with them from picking up from the airport till dropping us off it was just amazing! It was a very personalized experience.
The perfect private tour experience The BEST way to tour is with a small private tour and the team at come see Peru made the experience absolutely incredible. Nothing was rushed and the whole experience was calm, fun and educational. I booked really last minute at 9pm the night before our tour, Julio was a great help and was able to accommodate all of our requests. He arranged a slightly later collection for us as we had just spent a day travelling by minibus. Carlitos our guide was superb, his English is great. He was full of knowledge and able to answer every question we had about the 2 sites we visited. We also made an extra stop in Moras at a local families store for products from the salt mines and an additional explanation of how the salt flats are used. Nothing was too much trouble for our driver Cristóbal who was glad to stop at additional view points along the way and even took us to a fantastic lunch spot before driving us back to Urumbamba. The whole team went above and beyond our expectations and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
