Picture perfect local tour
"Fabrizio gave us a really engaging tour of Cusco centre from a local’s perspective. He took us to the market, introduced us to some of the stall holders and arranged us to taste some locally produced chocolate. We then went to a local bar and guinea pig restaurant and tried some local beer before marching up some rather steep hills to take pictures in the best viewing spots. Throughout, Fabrizio explained the history of Cusco, local customs and prompted us to stop for photos in the best spots. A very enjoyable experience with a brilliant guide that we will remember for a long time to come. "MichaelAbout local FabrizioCusco, January 4, 2024
"Fabrizio was the perfect host for our tour in Cusco - amazing communications and flexibility, which are appreciated. Great knowledge as a local and perfect English. We have used Withlocals in Europe, but never in South America and it was a great experience and he is one of the best guides in the world!"JerryAbout local FabrizioCusco, October 22, 2023
Four amigos touring Cusco
"Fabrizio is a fantastic guide! It was an easy meet up and he took us to various spots around Cusco. He gave us an in-depth tour of the market and taught us about parts of the culture through this experience. We tasted fruits and chocolates and learned how various produce and products are used in daily life. A wonderful experience for our senses and mind. Afterwards we strolled through the town up to higher elevations for views and a history lesson along the way. Truly an authentic experience that all four of us thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you Fabrizio!"AntoniaAbout local FabrizioCusco, October 2, 2023

A great experience with Fabrizio!!!
"We had a 4 hour food tour with Fabrizio that was so good – he was warm and engaging and encouraged us to expand our food horizons. We ate local, traditional food like chicharones, and stuffed peppers, lots of potatoes, corn & cheese, and the fermented corn beverage Chicca, and for dessert, picarones. Everything was delicious! We walked all over Cusco – not just in the historic district – and Fabrizio gave us lots of info about the local culture. Highly recommend the food tour with Fabrizio!!"AlanAbout local FabrizioCusco, January 18, 2023

Hidden Gems of Cusco
"Fabrizio was a pleasure to spend time with. His upbeat attitude was enthusiastic and contagious. He was attentive to our interests and adjusted our itinerary on the fly to fit our needs. The time we spent in the San Pedro Market was a highlight of our trip to Peru. Learning about the culture of the people and their spirit is why we travel and Fabrizio was an excellent embodiment of that."DavidAbout local FabrizioCusco, November 3, 2022
A lovely afternoon with Fabrizio
"Fabrizio is a great, funny and down to earth guy. We enjoyed our time with Fabrizio so much - we talked about anything and everything. We were shown where and what locals eat, learned a lot about Cusco, food, culture and much more. It was an enjoyable and insightful afternoon spend with Fabrizio. We wouldn't hesitate recommending Fabrizio to other visitors of Cusco! "JakubAbout local FabrizioCusco, November 3, 2022
