Expected to learn a lot about Cusco. Did learn some things about the Inca's but overall the tour wasnt very good. Went to various places where they want you to buy stuff or eat at a restaurant. Information imo was not very interesting but this could of course be subjective.

Didn't expect that tour to be so interesting. Our guide was fluent english, a good teller, knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. The tour shows you around Cusco center, brings you to all the different corners of the place, learning about the history, the people, the food, the achitecture, etc. The tour last about 3 hours. The people working for Free walking... More

We were a small group so didn't get the bus. But that worked out well! Walking the streets of a new city is always more fun. The tour gave us a great overview of the food, architecture, history, music and drinks of cusco/inka. :) Our tour guide was enthusiastic about his city and spoke clear english - another plus. Highly... More

Great tour with lots of good information. Jamie is very knowledgeable and is clear to understand. After exploring the main square we took a bus to Sacsayhuaman to see the ruins and such. The tour ends at a great bar with amazing views to sample traditional Pisco sours. Nice afternoon all in all!

The guide was pleasant and energetic, and we did see and learn some interesting insights of Cusco, especially with regard to some of the Inca walls, main square, etc. But the guide put us off visiting Coricancha/Santo Domingo Church & Convent, on the grounds that the property was owned by the Catholic Dominican order, so the entrance money did not...

We did a walking tour in Lima and Arequipa. Lima was ok but not amazing were Arequipa was boring and just a sales trip from store to store which is ok if you want that but there was little history. I have done walking tour throughout the world and these two were the worst. Also at the end they are... More

We really enjoyed this walking tour, though it wasn't as 'fun' as walking tours we've done in Quito & La Paz. Our tour guide was really passionate about Quechua and Inca history, and we learned things you don't often hear about from typical tourist information. There were also free tastings of alpaca meat & ceviche (including a quick cookery lesson... More

I really enjoyed this walk, despite raining conditions, Luis's knowledge and enthusiasm seemed to keep the group warm. Interesting and a few little tasters on the way. One of the better walking tours I've done.

This was more a sales tour instead of a walking tour. We would have expected to learn more about cusco but now we know where to buy the "best alpaca clothes" and where to eat the "best alpaca meat". Would definitely not recommend this tour.

This tour was the worst free walking tour we have done so far in Peru. We went to a restaurant (where we can get a discount) a shop where you can buy alpaca (where you can get a discount) and then to a ceviche restaurant (where you can get a discount. Where we went in Cusco was nowhere of notice.... More
