          Amazing!
          Highly recommended! We were desperate to find tickets for the Machu Picchu since we hadn’t booked our tickets ahead of time, and there was a strike as well at the Machu Picchu at the beginning of our stay. But Oswaldo helped us and literally took care of everything! Thanks to him we got to see the Machu Picchu! Everything was well organized and Oswaldo was always available to answer our questions. He also helped us to book another tour that was sold out online. Thanks for everything :)

          Wonderful group and tour!
          We booked our tickets very last-minute (2 days prior to tour) and from the moment we purchased, the group was communicative (via WhatsApp) and helpful. They were prompt to our hotel, made sure we were clear on travel transfers (car - train - bus - arrive in Machu Picchu - bus - train - car). Only hiccup was that we didn’t realize we needed faceshields for the train, and we got a bit panicked when we had to give up our passports so the coordinator could buy our bus tickets. All ended very well, however, and we’ve already recommended this group to friends.

          The way to see MP
          This Tour is ridiculous, # 1 you can't climb both mountains in a day, unless you have done a triathalon, You have to leave from Agua Caliente stay overnight and then back to Cousco, If I had to do again I would have stayed a 2nd night and back more time in Olyotomtabo ? 3rd sacred city valley (has great zipline tour from there); If you leave your hotel from A.C. you can walk to Bus to MP in less than 10 min from anywhere, get 6am bus so you get there for Sunrise, the early climb for H.Pichu starts at 7am, allow at least 2 hours for climbing & stops along the way to take pics. You will be exhausted after climb we rested and then took the afternoon tour of the City 'the sun dial was open', we finished at 3pm and we were exhausted. And it was October not so hot but hot enough....; we did the natural hot springs and took eve train back to O....bo & bus back to Cuzco, too late, dropped us off at different location too an Hour to find the hotel that was 2 blocks away (did not have map w Hotel location my mistake); luckily hung in bar / drinks and had people help us figure it out. I would definitely stay a 2nd night in Agua Caliente, and relax then take the local Van cheap (we did from Cuzco to AC cab to van & van to O....tambo for $8.75 for 2 persons. The tour we booked $100 for entrance to MP / tour of city. Climb extra $18 for 2 included bus back from O....tantabo. cute little hotel in AC $35 / night w breakfast, (held our bags so we could go to spa 4pm and come back change before train). The specifics of hotel p/u ? from what city Cuzco and return are VAGUE... Total Rip off buy the tour when you get to Peru, in Lima or later, we were lucky and got it in Cuzco for 2nd day after booking. ie booked Mo 3pm+ for Wednesday climb @ 7am; You are insane if you try to go from Cuzco to MP see & climb & return. What a waste of a trip. Cuzco is not a great place. Nice Churches, get a massage, food not great / was much better up in O....tambo & Agua Caliente..... OK just my opinion.

          Lima, Amazon, Cusco & Old Inca Trail to Mach Picchu
          This was my first experience working through a trip advisor to plan a multiple city and multiple tour destination trip. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our experience and how James Gilmore, our trip advisor at Incas Expert Travel, assisted and partnered with us to help coordinate our 12 day vacation. 1 day touring Lima was adequate for our liking. Highlights of our Lima tour was our visit to the Larco Museum and the San Francisco church and its historical catacombs. Our visit to the Amazon Rainforest was highlighted by our stay at the Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion. Inkaterra Concepcion is an amazing place to stay with their private Cabanas and their local rainforest expert, Mirko. Wayki Trek was responsible for our Old Inca trail hike and Louis, a Cusco native, was our trek tour guide. Wayki Trek and its entire trek team/staff, from the porters to the chef, were amazing. Louis, our hiking guide, was top-notch and I would highly recommend anyone hiking around Cusco to leverage Wayki Trek and Louis. James Gilmore and the Incas Expert Travel organization did an exceptional job coordinate our first visit to Peru. The logistics were well planned, organized and communicated. When you are relying on multiple companies/parties to deliver a personalized and private vacation to the demands of a daily / hourly schedule Incas Expert Travel made it look easy and seamless. Thanks James for all your efforts and making our Peru vacation one we will never forget.

          Not what we expected
          We were unlucky and our tour didn't have a English speaking guide as we had booked. So unfortunately we didn't get a lot of the interesting explanations etc. Also due to the language barrier we "lost" our guide after taking a horse up the mountain. Thus weren't sure what to do once off the horse. I am an asthmatic and didn't want to walk the rest of the way up the steepest sections without the guide and the potential oxygen support. It wasn't worth the risk to my health. What we did see was amazing and still totally worth it.

          Sacred Valley &Machu Picchu 2D1N tour
          很棒的體驗,我參加了聖谷(包含O鎮和皮薩克古蹟)&馬丘比丘兩天一夜的行程,事先在網路用郵件跟Incas advisor 的Oswaldo訂行程,在郵件和wahtsapp溝通,對方有問必答,且到了當地確實馬丘比丘門票、火車票、巴士票等等都安排的十分好,中途有一些特殊狀況也都隨時保持聯繫協助我們,談定的接駁也都有準時安排好,兩天一夜我和我朋友兩人玩得非常開心!!推薦這家旅行社~It’s excellent. I went to the Sacred Valley (including Ollantaytambo and pisac)&Machu Picchu 2D1N tour, my Incas agency contact window is Oswaldo, I booked this tour in advance and he just arrange everything very well, including the entrance for Machu Picchu, the round trip train ticket fo MP, the bus ticket from Aguas Calientes and the transfer,.....the trip is really good and I have unforgettable experience. Highly recommend Incas advisor.

          Awful - do not waste your money!
          There is a reason this company has so many poor reviews and low on the list of tour companies in Cusco. Poor service and an awful experience. Our guide did not meet us as promised so we were left to our own devices. The tour company was non responsive when trying to get help. No solutions provided either. A total waste of money. Choose a reputable tour provider instead of this one.

        **The 2 star rating is for this deal not the trip or tour guide itself. Those were all great. **

        Machu Pichu is a picture perfect destination, the tour within the city was great, however the process after the tour was confusing.
        This package includes pickup and drop off but the tour itself is only about 2-2.5 hours and this package was a whole day event. In other words from the time our tour was over we needed to kill about 3 hours before we could catch the train back to Cusco. The train ride back was about 2 hours longer than the initial ride because we were getting dropped off in a different area than from our pickup, we didn’t know why.
        From the train station a bus is supposed to have picked us up, but they left us after I went into the restroom for 5 minutes, luckily we caught a taxi.
        If you are going to Machu Pichu buy your ticket in advance, get to the train station early and book your guide at the site. It would be a lot cheaper and you don’t have to wait on anyone’s schedule, just my opinion.

        The pick-up at the hotel was 40 min late which is particulary annoying at 4am. Also, the driver didn't come to pick us up in the return at the train station at Ollantaytambo, we waited for 20min and then paid to some other minivan. Machu Picchu was great of course but the organisation was awful.

        from the moment they did not want to wear the mask and protection they already put the group at risk ... you took too long to get out of the train station ... our car cannot wait too long for half an hour just for you Leave in Ollantaytambo, it is a long time, the car had to leave and you had to wait for the next turn ... they put a complaint without foundation

        Oswaldo did a great job putting together our tour in spite of many challenges with our schedule. We were met by where we were staying, transported to the train station, and then met in Aguascalientes for a trip to Machu Picchu. The tour we were given by Raul was very informative and it added a lot of context to what we were looking at. I recommend this tour to anyone looking to see Machu Picchu while staying in Cusco.

        Terrible organization. Last minute we were told we had to buy our own tickets and no one was alongside our group to assist us. We had to get the money back from the organizer. The pickup driver got lost in finding our Airbnb. I asked if he was using GPS as there are two streets with the same name as ours. After chatting with the other guests, the driver couldn't find anyone on time. Bus transportation up to Machu Picchu was also missing from our reservation. We had to pay out of pocket and once again connect with the organizer to receive that money back. The only good thing out of this package was the tour guide they outsourced. Book with another organizer.

        Our tour to Mach Picchu was beautiful. The scenery up and back was breathtaking and our time touring Machu Picchu was perfect. My only complaint was the process of transferring from the train to buses, which involved hundreds of people and Pedro, the person in charge, didn’t properly guide people and several of us got lost.

        This trip was perfect for first time visitors. Oswaldo came to our hotel the night before to explain how the day would go. All train and bus tickets were bought in advance which made it very easy. The trains were comfortable and the tour guide at Machu Picchu was thorough and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour!

        This was a great experience. I am 72 years old, over weight, bad knees and I made it all the way to the top and back down again. My son, daughter-in-law, daughter, 11 yr old grandson and two friends were here with me. My grandson was like a llama or alpaca going up the pathways, me I was slow but made it. We took great pictures and our guide Edwin made sure we took time to truly enjoy the beauty and immense splendor.

        Our tour operator was fantastic. There was a lot of communication ahead of the trip and plenty of people on the team at each step to guide you along.
        When I missed my return train, our operator worked extra to secure our ride back in to Cusco.
        I was very concerned because we did not have tickets to Machu Picchu ahead of time but the team got us in line for the daily tickets and we were able to see this wonderful site.
        Had we not chosen this tour option, we would have missed Machu Picchu… which is something you should never do when visiting Peru.

        Oswald made sure we had a fantastic trip from booking to completion. He answered all questions, provided information and tickets, and made sure we had all the contacts. From taxis, bus, and train, we really got to experience the whole trip and learn about the area, including the sacrad valley. The Day trip was exactly how he said it would be. We really enjoyed the tour of Machu Picchu. It was a wonderful experience. I recommend booking with Oswald.

        The company did a great job arranging the tour to Machu Picchu on the short notice. Everything was organized very well for the competitive price. The guide was knowledgeable and also made the great pictures for us. He also recommended a great restaurant to have a dinner prior to our train back. We enjoyed our tour - great experience. It was a little bit exhausting but definitely worth it!
