Desde el momento en que me contacté con ellos para hacer consulta sobre los tour, hasta el momento de finalizar el tour, tuvieron muy buena disposición a contestar mis preguntar con mucha amabilidad, preocupándose siempre de que estuviéramos disfrutando. Tomamos el tour "SALKANTAY - MACHU PICCHU 5D" y quedamos maravillados con el paisaje, las historias que nos contaba el guía que nos acompañó y las artesanías que encontramos en algunos lugares. 100% recomendado
