Fünf -Tages-Trekking-Tour über Salkantay nach Machu Picchu Unser Trip, gebucht über Getyourguide, durchgeführt von Terra Quechua Peru, hat in fast allen Punkten unseren Erwartungen entsprochen. Von der Abholung am Hotel, die zwar deutlich eher als erwartet war bis zur Verabschiedung unseres Guides hat alles prima und reibungslos geklappt. Mir Renaldo und Asencio hatten wir zwei überaus liebenswerte Guides, die immer ansprechbar waren, die Bedürfnisse des Einzelnen berücksichtigt haben und dafür gesorgt haben, das alles reibungslos abgelaufen ist. Unser Koch Javier hat alles getan, damit zu jeder Mahlzeit verschiedene, abwechslungsreiche Gerichte auf den Tisch kamen und an unserem letzten gemeinsamen Frühstück sogar noch eine Torte gebacken. Das einzige, was wir nicht so machen konnten wie gebucht, war der Aufstieg auf den Machu Picchu Mountain. Terra Quechua Peru hatte uns den Aufstieg auf den Huayna Picchu gebucht, obwohl es im Vorfeld anders abgesprochen war. Daher ein Punkt Abzug. Trotzdem war auch die Aussicht von diesem Berg sensationell und abschließend bleibt zu sagen, wir würden Terra Quechua Peru jederzeit wieder buchen🙂

Excellent travel agency! We highly recommend it! Mr. Edwin did all the intermediation of our tours in both Cusco and Lima. Always attentive, responding quickly on Whatsapp, in addition to being clear about the information about each of the tours. The prices are fair and he works on the basis of trust, which helped us a lot during our stay. Its staff is punctual, helpful and lively, explaining in detail the main points and historical events. They are also bilingual (Spanish and English), making the experience even better. We highly recommend Terra Quechua Peru!

Highly reliable agency. The truth is we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent service received by this agency. From the first moment we had contact, until the moment we boarded the plane back to Costa Rica, everything was in perfect harmony and control on their part, they always made us feel safe and confident in every move we would make. Not only are they worth recommending, but when we return, God first, they will be our first choice for the activities we will do. We are really very grateful to their entire work team, which is more than qualified for the activities they dedicate themselves to, and yet, giving more than what they offer. Blessings to each of you and we hope to meet again very soon.

Cusco & Machu Picchu: an unforgettable trip We contracted Cuzco city tour, excursion to Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Huayna Picchu, Montaña de Colores and Laguna Humantay with this agency before traveling. The organization was impeccable and any problem that arose, Edwin resolved it immediately, always very attentive at any time. Super recommended. The places visited are spectacular, beautiful. They were all worth seeing. Combination of natural landscapes of great beauty, archaeological sites, culture, history, gastronomy.

Salkantay 5 days Very good experience! I did the 5-day Salkantay trek, domo by domo. As previously the height made me feel bad and after passing 4500 meters I started to feel bad, we looked for an alternative to be able to do the path but ignoring day 2 when we reach 5000 meters. Edwin helped me re-coordinate everything and also kept an eye on the departures. It was a little chaotic at the beginning because the day I had the meeting at the agency I had to go to the doctor to evaluate my lungs and that meant I didn't make it to the previous meeting, but Edwin still received me later at the agency and I help reorganize everything. The guides were 10,000! Edison and Brian, two young guides helped us all the way and were super attentive. It was fun. Edison incredible patience! The chef Gabriel made magic with his hands, the meals were incredible. I am not going to deny that when I paid online from Argentina I was a little afraid, but everything went super well and more than recommended! Then I hired them again for a day trip! Thank you Edison for all the support and Edwin for all the coordination.

Good agency for first timers in Peru This comment is for people like me who had more questions than answers when seeing the previous reviews of this post. I did an 8-day tour including Lima and Cusco with their main trekking and tourism attractions. In general, the agency fulfilled what was promised from the beginning and in general terms our trip went very well and we did not have any major setbacks. Additionally, the weather was very good throughout the week and that helped a lot. However, there are some things that no one tells you and some pros and cons of taking tours with Quechua terra. 1. In our case, the agency only coordinated and booked the tours with third parties who do offer the tours. There was never a presence of anyone from the agency on the tours, I only saw Edwin (manager) once during my entire stay and it was to cancel the entire tour. Apparently many agencies work like this in Cusco 2. By not having the presence of anyone from the agency, you depend on the subcontracted third party and the luck you have in terms of the guides. In our case everything went according to plan except for the colorful mountain guide who left us abandoned during the walk and we had to go to people around us because my partner suffered from an asthmatic attack. Additionally, he did not give any relevant historical explanation during the tour. 3. The agency's daily communication was reactive and not proactive. Personally, I had to write to them every night so they could give me the instructions from the other day. I felt that they were not very attentive to us, although every time the third parties were delayed or something like that, the agency always responded attentively to my calls. So much so that we finished the tour, left the country and to date we have not received even a goodbye or a thank you. 4. When you arrive in Cusco they literally give you an envelope with documents and reservations and you depend on yourself so that your itineraries and reservations are fulfilled, the agency does not intervene directly and again you depend on third parties. In our case we realized this and we had to rush our visit to Ollantaytambo (we hardly enjoyed it) to be able to take our trains to Machupichu, in this case the outsourced agency left us on our own in Ollantaytambo as if to say "from here on ahead they are alone.” 5. The city tour in Cusco and the sacred valley is done with a tourist ticket that is valid for 10 days, however the agency never tells you this and neither does it tell you that you have access to many other tourist attractions included in the ticket if You have free time in Cusco. We found out about this during the tours but it was too late and we couldn't take full advantage of it before leaving Cusco 6. Hotels and transportation are excellent, especially in Cusco and Lima respectively. We did not have time to plan the trip in its entirety, so this agency was a very good option for us, however I consider that for a second time it is better to plan the trip on your own, it is more enjoyable, without races and of course a lot cheaper since you deal directly with the companies that do the tours.
