Solo Traveller

I stayed in Cusco three weeks and booked all my travels with Mundo Mapi. They always welcomed me with a smile and fair prices for their trips. It was always well organized and Cinthia followed through throughout the excursions making sure everything went well. I strongly recommend this agency if you are looking for travelling with one you can trust!
