Mega! The team is super friendly! From the arrival to the flight and the service, everything was well organized! Besides comfortable clothes (it's quite chilly during the flight) you might consider bringing drinks (water) with you, but there seems to be a small kiosk nearby. We waited a bit for the team to fly after us and were thirsty, but this is only a side note. A very nice experience! Thanks so much!!

Hicimos esta actividad durante el mes de diciembre. Todo fue perfecto. Este tour en Cusco lo podéis encontrar aquí en la plataforma. Nuestro guia incluso nos apoyo con su tiempo con lugares donde comer, la gastronomia fue sensacional, como también nos dejo en un bonito lugar donde ver las mejores artesanías.

Jose was a fantastic guide! He showed us all the best parts of Barranco, and at our speed. Thank you for introducing us to the donuts also!!

Good way to see the coastline on my first day in Lima. Jose was an excellent guide and the trip was done safely on dedicated bike lanes
