Cusco/Sacred Valley Guide Recommendation

Jump to last reply

If anyone is looking for a great travel agency in Cusco, check out Harmony Travel, specifically Pabel. They originally were recommended to us by someone at the front desk at the Marriott in Cusco (an amazing hotel, by the way, I also highly recommend!). I corresponded some with Pabel before we left the US for Peru, and we also met with him a few times while in Cusco. I'm usually a very detailed trip planner and plan/book everything myself, but this time, because of my husband's crazy busy work schedule lately, our trip to Peru was planned entirely about 2 weeks in advance, so we needed help once we arrived figuring out our plans and booking some things (airport transfers, flights, etc) last minute. Pabel was awesome and he (or another Harmony agent) was always in the lobby of the Marriott hotel from around 8am-8pm every day. Their mark-up was very minimal (for ex, for bus tickets on the InkaExpress the markup was about US$3 per person if I remember correctly). I corresponded with Pabel at this email address: reservasharmony@outlook.com.

Secondly, it was through Harmony that we met a wonderful guide named Remy (unsure of spelling and unsure of his last name). We toured Chinchero, Moray, and Maras with him one day and had such a great experience we ended up hiring him to take us to Pisaq and Ollantaytambo for the following day. He is from Cusco, was a professor at a university in Cusco at one point if I remember correctly, was very very knowledgeable, and spoke excellent English. We had a great time with him and I don't hesitate to recommend him. I'm sorry I don't have a direct contact for him but, again, we booked him through Harmony Travel.

I don't necessarily always write reviews like this, but my husband and I had such a great experience I felt compelled!
