José Alfredo y Valeria were amazing. I took this tour with my two daughters and we enjoyed it . We visited the four Main barrios of Cuszco. They were very patient with me as I’m injured in one knee so I had to take it slowly on the climbs and descents. But, if I was able to do it anyone can. The views are work it and both of them pointed good spots to take pictures. They shared amazing stories of life present and past here in Cuzco. Totally worth it!

It was great to learn about the city of Cusco on this cultural-photography walk. I was able to learn about the neighborhoods by listening to Alfredo and Valerie stories, which they are very educated about the subject. We got the chance to photograph the beautiful buildings, panoramic sights, and local people. Alfredo and Valerie were very friendly, and they carry a great creative vision.
