Atención y excursiones de 10 Me topé con Danzak Perú de casualidad, dando un paseo, buscando agencias para concertar viajes.Fue muy sencillo.Además de amoldarme los viajes a mi gusto, me asesoraron de maravilla y el precio fue muy competitivo, el mejor hasta el momento de los que había preguntado.El trato fue inmejorable. Estuvieron muy atentos, preguntándome sobre qué me habían parecido las excursiones, informándome sobre cambios, guía de cómo hacer otras excursiones fuera del itinerario.Sin duda, fue una suerte haberme encontrado con ellos.Si fuera a Cusco, iría directamente a ellos para organizar las excursiones.Muchas gracias por todo.Fue un placer coincidir con vosotros.

Great Day Tour to Rainbow Mountain We took the one day tour with Jason to Rainbow Mountain; they took us to a different route which was only a 30 minute hike to the peak as opposed to the normal 2 hour route. The drive to this was much much longer though and the car was not comfortable which is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. It would've been nice to have been consulted with this decision as well, but luckily, we were all happy and glad to be on the shorter hike since we were exhausted from a 4 day hike that we completed the night before.Jason was great, enthusiastic and friendly. Rainbow Mountain itself is simply stunning, you cannot go to Cusco and not visit this wonder. Danzak Peru offers very reasonable prices too which is always a huge advantage.

Maras - Moray - Chinchero When we were in Cusco we did this nice day trip. We had the luck of being guided by Jason. He entertained us during the tour with his enthusiasm and lots of interesting facts. We visited the salt mines of Maras, got introduced to the Andean weaving techniques in Chinchero and learned about the 7.000 different kinds of potatoes in Moray :). We finished the tour with a delicious Peruvian meal and Pisco sour. A day well spent.
