info Info about this incredible tour

Make the most out of your time in Cusco and get to know its two highlights: Machu Picchu and the Rainbow Mountains.

Without a doubt, Machu Picchu is the most popular tourist attraction in Peru. Get to know all the details about Pachacutec, about Hiram Bingham, the discoverer of Machu Picchu and about the historical events and stories related to it in a private tour. Our tour guide will show you the best spots for photos where normal tourist groups don’t go.

Apart from that, you will enjoy the tour to the Palccoyo Rainbow Mountains which will astonish you because of their variety in colours due to the existing minerals in its soil. Forget the typical trekking tour to the Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain where you will be with hundreds of other tourists fighting to get the best photo with no people on it. In comparison to that trek, you will not only see “one” Rainbow Mountain but three and there aren’t any large crowds around. More than that, you will hike for only 45 minutes!
