Hi everyone! I am Jose Martinez founder of "Free Walking Tour Cusco". I was born in this city and have been a hiking guide in Machu Pichu for many years, in fact I have visited it more than 300 times. As a result, I decided to create my Free Tours company in 2016 for travelers to discover the true history of the ancient city of Cusco, with me you will discover a very authentic and local explanation about the capital of the Inca society. We currently form the team of 3 guides willing to make you discover this wonderful city and discover the most important things in Cusco.

The 2:15 hours or so tour with Condor was fast and dense. We covered a lot of history, society, and sites. He speaks Spanish pretty fast, but not unintelligibly so. Lots of stairs and not at a leisurely pace, but he'll check in to make sure you're okay and offer you some agua florida to help with altitude adjustment. Offered to take lots of fun pictures. Hooks you up with the best local businesses to buy and experience things. Genuinely connected to and excited to share the local Incan history and culture. Positive and easy to talk to.
