If you come to Cusco, a visit to the Sacred Valley of the Incas is a must. I recommend a tour to visit the main ones, we did it with the agency Terra Quechua Peru.

Excellent, cheap, with excellent guide and buffet lunch included.
You visit Pisac, Urubamba, Oyantaytambo and other small villages. You visit Inca archaeological sites, craft markets, the views are more than amazing and everyone is very welcoming and friendly. Our guide Mauro was knowledgeable and fun. He arrived on time and took care of us all day. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, SACRED VALLEY !!!!

Went on this retreat to help deal with anxiety and depression

Chosed this retreat for the amazing scenery, location, and food. The instructors and the support of the group were incredible, I left feeling so refreshed after. I felt like my mind and body received a much-needed reset. Honestly worked better than I thought. Highly recommend this retreat to anyone! Worth every penny.”

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is a tour not to be missed, from the moment of pick up Terra Quechua Peru was attentive and punctual, the guide Miguel was really kind and gave us great information about the history and much more. We went to the ruins of Ollantaytambo and Pisac, all with beautiful landscapes. It is a very worthwhile tour. I recommend taking sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. We will come back with more time to see more of Cuzco.

Impossible to be in Cusco and not do the excursion to the Sacred Valley, we hired the tour with Terra Quechua Peru in private because we had certain time restrictions, it was a day tour through different villages, where you can see wonderful archaeological ruins, shopping in their craft markets, colorful typical products, and enjoy a buffet lunch, Andy was our guide, and at all times was concerned that each of the group members know the places we were visiting.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, THE BEST!!!!

We went to do the tour of VALLE SAGRADO VIP and really was amazing the attention of the travel agency Terra Quechua Peru, undoubtedly the best option to enjoy, the company surprised us on this tour .... The company was absolutely committed to detail, as for the service we were lucky to have a guide who was very professional and serious in his work, has a mastery in Inca history and traditions, we visited beautiful places like Chincheros, Moray, Salineras de Maras, the ruins of Ollantaytambo among others and we enjoyed a delicious BUFET MEAL.

Alfredo was a great guide! I was solo traveler and only English speaker, and he made the time to explain everything in English and answer any questions. The tour was long, but was a good way to see the major Sacred Valley sites when one does not have much time.

in a new car, with panoramic windows, air conditioning and a personalized itinerary, our driver RENAN, took us with a trilingual guide to the Sacred Valley, it was incredible! the quality of the information that FRANK gave us was a real history lesson!
We enjoyed it a lot, we had lunch in an excellent restaurant in a new hotel (photos) and we closed this day with a visit to the handicraft shop with a unique experience!
I recommend!!!
Fair price and excellent service!
very honest price that was worth it!!!
I highly recommend, Renan: +51997878443

Everything was wonderful thanks to Terra Quechua Peru, they took care of everything, transport, accommodation, entrance fees and lunch. They were attentive to me and my family at all times. What I appreciate the most is that even with everything planned, they are flexible to make changes and accommodate the needs of their clients.
Sacred Valley + Machu Picchu was an absolute dream! Daniel was our guide and it didn't take him long to make us feel like family. From start to finish, Daniel was more than accommodating, very knowledgeable and most of all fun. This trip was truly beyond my dreams and words will always fall short! I now have friends for life and endless memories.

I was lucky enough to get hooked up with Sutta from TreXperience hiking outfit. I had never done anything like this before and wasn’t sure what to expect. He was very knowledgeable, informative and just an all around nice guy! He was very patient with me, as the altitude was having an effect on my breathing. We went as slow as I needed, and he was very understanding. I would highly advise TreXperience, but especially Sutta as a guide for the many treks that they offer.

We were a party of four traveling on a private tailor-made excursion to Peru. Like many others we planned to visit the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and Cusco. We did visit those locations and associated cultural and archaeological sites. What I think is important about Kuoda were visiting unique, unanticipated, and off the beaten path venues and locations. These were not necessarily places that I would have selected or included for our trip. But, in every instance they were memorable and fun. These are the experiences that added real value and memories to our trip.
We were met outside the Cusco Airport by Ofelia and her driver Elisban. Ofelia, lives in Cusco; has spent seven years as Kuoda Travel guide; and, turned out to be knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to be around. Elisban was an excellent driver who took the worry out of travel in the Sacred Valley and Cusco. We spent six days with both and loved every minute spent with them. Two examples of how Ofelia went above and beyond. The first was her innocuous suggestion to use a local laundry close to our hotel. This was an excellent laundry that charged $9.00 to wash and dry a large bag of clothes. Secondly, Ofelia had no qualms identifying who or where it was appropriate to barter or suggesting shopping locations. The quality of Kouda’s guides and representatives is one of the things that make Kuoda Travel special.
In planning our trip, Kuoda Travel recommended two hotels. The first was the Tambo del Inca, A Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, the best hotel in the Sacred Valley. Hotel details and photos can be accessed on the internet or through Marriott. We spent three nights at the Tambo del Inca and found it to be a great choice and worth considering if you are travelling to the Sacred Valley. A second recommendation was the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo hotel in Aguas Calientes. This was also an excellent choice.
Several examples of places or locations I would not have thought to schedule or visited were in the Sacred Valley and Cusco. One was lunch at a small village in a modern and elegant private residence. Who knew except Kuoda? Lunch included our party of four and another 6-8 restaurant guests with the food exceptional. Following lunch, we visited a small village along the shore of Lake Piuray. Our party was given a display of local weaving by women who were local weaving masters. We were the only tourists present. The final example was a Pachamancal in the Sacred Valley. The Pachamancal feast involves marinating lamb, pork, chicken, potatoes and cooking them in an underground oven. This is something that Kouda included in our itinerary that I suspect most do not get to participate in. For instance, our Pachamancal feast included our group four, two other tourists, our guides, and drivers. Like many of Kouda’s venues, we were either there early before the tourist buses arrived or were the only tourists in attendance.
Our itinerary included travel by Peru Rail to Aguas Calientes, an overnight stay and two visits to Machu Picchu. Ofelia managed all the arrangements including train tickets, entrance to Machu Picchu, checking into our hotel, and two lunches. I took the opportunity to visit with Ofelia about her guiding experience. She has been taking tourists with Kouda for seven years and has visited Machu Picchu numerous times. She had walked the one-day Inca Trail trip over twenty times. Had taken the three-to-five-day Inca trail hike three times. And, most impressively, she had climbed Sugarloaf Peak of the Huayna Picchu at 10,112’ three times. Not only was Ofelia helpful during our visit, but knowledgeable of the Inca civilization and Machu Picchu history. Ofelia had literally walked the talk or should I say hiked the talk.
In Cusco, Ofelia took us to several historical sites including to the fortress of Sacsayhuaman, the Cusco Market, and a small café for coffee and Danish. She also took us to a great off the beaten path alpaca store, Millmas. Millmas provided a lot of the alpaca clothing to stores in Cusco and the surrounding area. Millmas had a broad selection and incredibly pricing. We ended our stay in Cusco eating guinea pig at a restaurant recommended by Ofelia. Elisban took us to the airport the next day for our flight to Lima and then on to Trujillo.
Let me summarize by saying that Kuoda paid close attention to large and small details. Their efforts removed some of the hassle and worry allowing us the luxury of enjoying our trip. If you are planning travel to Peru, Kuoda Travel would be a viable option for planning your itinerary.
