Why Machu Picchu Small Group Tours?

What sets us apart from many other tour operators in Cusco, Peru is that we specialize in private, small group tours to Peru with a maximum of 6 people.

The reason Peru small group tours are so important to us is that we personally see, time and time again, how much more enjoyable and peaceful an experience is when you’re not dependent on the whims of a large, unpredictable group of strangers, especially in a Machu Picchu group tour. In our ideal Peru group tours, we’re able to provide the highest quality of service and personalized attention to a small group of people.

Picture these common scenarios when you get smushed together with strangers in a large group tour:

  • You see adorable baby llamas at Machu Picchu and have settled in to get the perfect shot to send to your family, but your tour group has already moved on and you need to catch up before they round the corner.
  • You underestimate the effects of the high altitude (click here for altitude tips) and know you’ll be fine if you just listen to your body and rest for a bit, but everyone on your tour keeps pushing you ahead, exhausting you further.
  • Machu Picchu has been on your bucket list for years because of everything you knew you’d learn on the tour, but now you can’t hear the guide every time s/he stops to give tidbits because of a couple pushy families who always position themselves in front.
  • You have so many questions about Peru and Machu Picchu, but your guide barely has time to answer them because s/he has to cater to everyone’s questions in your large group.
  • There are a couple key spots that interest you in Machu Picchu, but you can’t bypass the sections you’re less interested in because you need to stick to the group who are all taking their sweet time.
  • You’re a senior citizen visiting Machu Picchu and want to take your time, but you constantly feel pressured by your group to walk faster.

Our goal is to avoid these types of occurrences so that you can thoroughly enjoy your time in Peru. Visiting Machu Picchu is often described to be a magical experience, and we want to lay optimal groundwork for you to feel that magic.

  1. Why do you work with small groups?

    Based on our experience, travelers enjoy their Peru trip and Machu Picchu tours much more when part of small groups catered to their specific needs instead of large impersonal groups.

  2. What if I'm a solo traveler or traveling as a couple?

    We may group you together with others, but your group will remain small and will still only consist of a maximum of 6 people.

  3. What if I have a large group of over 6 people?

    If you come as your own larger group, we'll try to keep you all together as best as possible. Sometimes, an optimal experience requires dividing a very large group, but it'll still just be you and your group on the tours.
