Group services versus Private services?

This is a question we all need to ask ourselves when planning a trip. The answer depends largely on the age, the particular interests of each person and, above all, the economy of each passenger. Below, we list the differences between conducting a group service versus a private service. It should be noted that, in either of the two modalities, you will receive top quality care from the entire team of professionals who will make your trip unforgettable

Group Services

  • The driver follows the stops designated by the tour
  • Groups can have between 15 and 20 people
  • Guidance is simultaneous in English and Spanish for the entire group
  • The itinerary has to be strict to fulfill the daily plan
  • Guidance is available at the same time for the entire group
  • The main advantage of group services is the affordable price

Private Services

  • The driver will make the necessary stops where you indicate
  • Of 5 or more people, the private service has a similar price to the group service.
  • You own the time you want to have at each stop
  • Guidance is in only 1 language and at the passenger’s choice (prior consultation for rare languages)
  • The guide will be available only for you and attentive to your requirements
  • The travel experience becomes much more personal and deep in knowledge

We urge you to get in touch with us so we can design your trip to Peru together, probably combining some excursions in private and some in group services. Our team of experienced voyagers knows what it means to plan a trip of a lifetime as well as the investment that implies, therefore, we want everything to go perfect.

You leave Cusco early in the morning in a private vehicle towards the magical and important town of Chinchero, a large agricultural, administrative and religious center in the Incas time.  It lies off the main road between Cusco and Urubamba and it is towered over by the Vilcabamba range and the snowcapped peak of Salcantay.  Today this large town is surrounded by several high Andean communities that every Sunday come to the village to attend a local mass in the language of their ancestors, the Quechua, in a tiny but stunning church that was built on top of an Incan Palace with ornate painted ceilings.

After the visit of this picturesque town, you begin a 4 hour (aprox.) hike through an Inca trail, towards the Sacred Valley of the Incas 9700f/2956m between forest and foliage while you enjoy wonderful views of the great mountains.  If you are interested in birdwatching, an expert guide will accompany you to enjoy this activity.
