The beautiful city of Cusco was built on the foundations of the Inca, that makes it a city with a hybrid character, full of fascination and mystery. Peru is dotted with Inca sites, but none as famous as the “lost city” of Machu Picchu, considered the seventh wonder of the modern world.

But in addition, this area of Peru (Cusco Region) has also been blessed with natural gifts: a part of the cloud forest Amazon jungle falls within the limits of Cusco, and visitors can walk not only through the Inca past of this city, but also through part of the cloud forest, the Andes mountains and deeply valleys full of traditions and an admirable nature.

We invite you to discover the region of Cusco and Machu Picchu with us!

    The city of Cusco is known for being the starting point to visit the incredible lost city of the Incas Machu Picchu and for being the ancient capital of the Inca empire.

It sits on top of a mountain, 8,000 feet (2,430 meters) in the tropical forest, offering spectacular scenery with significant endemic biodiversity of flora and fauna

    Cusco and Machu Picchu are located in the same region (Cusco region) and are like two sides of the same coin.

    Giardino was recommended by a friend, and even though I had booked some hotels on my own, they managed to work around it, and provide us a wonderful experience from Paracas, Nazca, Ica, Huacachina to Puno. The guide Luis Angel was very knowledgeable, answered every question, and went over and beyond his duties to make the tour an unforgettable time in Perú.

    We had a fun and educational private Colca Valley tour and road trips with Ramiro (guide) and Herbert (driver) from Giardino Tours. They picked us up from the Arequipa airport, took us to our accommodations at Colca Lodge, took us on a beautiful hike to the isolated Chimpa Fortress... We are glad the agency we engaged to plan our Peru adventure chose Giardino Tours for this part of the trip!

    We traveled in Peru with having all of our trip booked through the Giardino travel agency. Karla helped us with the planning and booked the trip, the individual tours and our flights. The price for the tour overall was very reasonable... The guides were fantastic and were the best part about doing these tours. They were knowledgeable and had some of the best recommendations for us to do

    We went on a two-day tour with Luis and Julio and it was amazing! Luis speaks very good English and knows a lot about the history and culture of is own country. At every question, he could easily give you a good answer and explainating. Julio was a very good driver. We felt very safe and he stopt at the best spots for pictures. This was one of the best trips during our stay in Peru. We highly recommend this tour guide!
