Absolutely stunning!!!

Siebrand, Feb 2020

Very personal experience and well worth the money, the day before Yang our travel assistant came our hotel to give us a briefing and recommendations to make rainbow mountai tour and answered all our questions, the altitude is no joke though so definitely drink a lot of water or some pills prior to the trip. Our guides Carlos, Marta and driver Pedro were all brilliant. At all times they were helpful knowledgeable and made the experience memorable. HIGHLY recommend! these guys for your adventure in cusco. Siebrand Family.

Wonderful experience
