The Full Day Sacred Valley Tour was the highlight of my trip to Peru. Cusco Open Tour did an amazing job! The lunch in Urubamba was delicious, and the visit to Ollantaytambo was like stepping back in time. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. I would definitely tour with them again!
