Peru Hike Company can pick you up from your hotel, as long as it’s in the Historic Center of Cusco. The pickup time will be coordinated with your guide in the briefing. The pickup time may vary between 30 and 45 minutes due to traffic. Cusco is a very old city, therefore, it has many narrow cobbled streets. Some hotels and Airbnbs may be located on streets without access to cars or on long, steep slopes, making it difficult to transport luggage. We strongly recommend that you book accommodation with good access.

Holger was the best tour guy ever!! He’s very knowledgeable and he taught us so much about the culture and the places we passed by. Horses were well-trained, and they nice thing about this tour and what makes Stand out from other tours is that Holger was riding a horse too and he took the Leed, because of that, we were able to go to far places. He’s so respectful and kind. This tour exceeded my expectations. Thanks holger!! You’re the man!!
I had the most INCREDIBLE time on this tour. My guide, Olgar, was very knowledgeable about the local Incan sites and natural plant remedies. We explored many different sites on horseback and walking. My horse, Sol Andino, was very sweet and made me feel super safe! I would highly recommend this tour, it is perfect for everyone!
