      This was a great tour! Lily was friendly and fun. She took us through the local market and practiced communicating in Spanish with us to purchase our tamales, Inca cola, and fruit. We learned a lot about the locals through Lily. It was a good amount of walking, and she took us up some steep trails, but nothing that was unmanageable. I would absolutely recommend this tour!

      We had a great time with Lily on our market tour. We met her at the Plaza Regocijo at 9am, which is close to the Plaza de Armas. From there we went straight to the market. Lily taught us about the local foods and helped us with our Spanish as we purchased snacks for our picnic. This was all included in our tour. Lily even helped me find the right vendor to buy some coffee to take back home. I have to say that butcher section was the most interesting. I'm not squeamish at all, so this was my favorite part. After the market, we took a taxi up to the Temple of the Moon. This tour does not include admission to Sacsayhuaman itself, but you will get a good view of it. During the walk, we asked many questions and Lily gave us tons of info about Cusco, the Inca, Peruvian history...she was very knowledgeable and friendly. Yes this tour does involve a lot of walking but Lily will adjust the pace if necessary. Overall, I thought it was a great way to learn about the history as well as modern ways of Cusco.

      Emily our guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and was attentive to our needs. We weren't the fastest navigating the Temple of the Moon and she slowed the pace and gave us encouragement. The Temple provides many lessons of the ways of life of the indigenous people. When in the market, she taught us the proper manners and idioms to use when buying our lunch. Be prepared to walk about 4 miles. You are treated to fantastic views of the City from on high. To see the juxtaposition of the old Plaza de Armas and the new football stadium is interesting to the eye. All in all, well worth it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

      A Wonderful Taste of Cusco! Llovana was relaxed and friendly as we visited the bustling Market, bought local unique foods, amazing opportunity to sample culture and the inside scoop Too! Ended up strolling the Inca trail nearby with visions of the Moon, monkeys and Pumas dancing in my head. ENCANTO!

      My husband and I took this tour with our guide LeLeana while our 22 year old twin sons took the Cusco City Bike Tour. There is a lot of walking. We got confused about where we were supposed to meet our guide and were 20 min. late to the meeting spot. There was no one there. We saw a guide from another tour agency and she called our tour company--Urban Adventures. In 10 min. Leleana, who had been our tour guide on the Cusco Night Walking Tour showed up. It was a private tour. Just us and Lele. So much fun! We went to the San Pedro Market and bought an Inca Cola, tamale and fruit to eat later. We took a taxi way above Cusco to Sacsayhuaman ruins and walked and learned with Lele. We went to La Vicunita Factoria where we were able to choose from the most beautiful baby alpaca knit goods imaginable. We had our picnic in the grass overlooking Cusco and learned so so much about the history and like of the Inca kings. Lele did a fantastic job! Highly recommend!

      Our guide Lily met us at the appointed time and was very welcoming and gracious. She shared the history of Cuszo as we walked tot he Market place. What a wonderful experience! She taught us a few phrases in Spanish so we could purchase some fruit and goodies to be eaten later. We learned so much about the cultural practices of the citizens of Cuszo. She then took us to the White Christ which had an awesome panoramic view and we enjoyed our purchases as we watched tradtitional indigenous women pose for pictures with their llamas. The stroll through the ruins was another great experience and very different from the one we took the next day with our regular tour group. So glad we chose this instead of the optional tour with our group!

      I always think that doing a city tour is a great way of getting to know the area, history, and culture of the local people. This tour did not disappoint and my husband and I were the only people on it. The guide Geovana was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. Without her we would have missed so much. She told us about the local history and pointed out different things. We visited the San Pedro market which was bustling with people where local produce and goods could be bought. Our guide bought us fruit that we hadn't eaten before to be eaten later on a hilltop of the Statue of the White Christ overlooking Cusco and they tasted excellent. Then a trip to the local archaeological sites of Saqsayhuaman and Qenko which was very educational. They only thing I would say was that a more precise meeting point should have been arranged as we nearly missed the guide. A tour not to be missed

      This is the tour everybody should take in Cuzco. The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and spoke English very well. The main focus was the San Pedro market, where the natives shop for food, household items etc. The best way to learn about the culture and way of life of the local people. Then we explored the most important and impressive Inca structures in Sachsayhuaman and Quenco. A very nice touch was that the guide with our input bought the ingredients for a delicious lunch which we enjoyed on a hilltop overlooking Cusco. The whole experience was very enjoyable, educational and pleasant.

      GREAT tour and amazing guide. The visit to the Central Market was awesome. Of course, the local ruins were great. Also, the tour was, truly, a private one for me and my friend (even though it was advertised as a small group). Loved it.

      I wish we did this tour to the markets before going to Machu Picchu. We could have saved at least 50% shopping here.
      Lilly our guide was very nice, showed us how the locals live, she also had us tried tasty tamales and passion fruit from the market.
