Great experience with bilingual guide.

Our guide was good when we were off the bus sight seeing because we understood what she was saying. She was hard to understand when the bus was moving. We thought that the tour was in the city of Cusco but it’s actually to see ruins outside of the city. My favorite part was the coca ceremony done by one of the locals.
