Inkan Milky Tours SRL. – Tours & Walks

The touch of Local Indigenous Peruvian People!!!

Who are we?

We are Richard & Elvis, authorized tour guides and professionals in Tourism industry for more than 7 years. Back in 2012 we started the FREE walking tours project in Cusco city inspired by our LOVE to whatever it has to do with history, culture and service to our customers, we started this idea as Free Tours by Foot Cusco since then till now 2018 we have had a great time with every single customer.

Because of the huge preference and succeed we have in Cusco city, the last three years we have been competing with poor competitors who shamelessly were using our commercial name: Free Tours by Foot Cusco, to “offer” the “same thing” what we do, especially at plaza de armas of Cusco, they would offer Free Tours by Foot Cusco, tired of this situation we decided to make a huge restoration in our company, starting with the commercial name: Free Tours by Foot Cusco that had to be changed by Inkan Milky Way Tours, our Legal Name, so that nobody can use it to poach our customers on plazas or streets, we also had to change our Tripadvisor and facebook.

Having said so Free Tours by Foot Cusco is now Inkan Milky Way Tours Cusco, we are totally renewed, but still we keep the originality and the great quality on our service, based on more than 7 years of experience in the tourism industry, you can see our wonderfull reviews on tripadvisor as well.

This year 2018 we are also implementing the best custom tours in Cusco and Lima, best group prices, quality at the correct and reasonable price.

Can you meet us? Certainly

Unlike many big tour companies, we are small locally operated company, our customers can always meet us, we are still guiding, we are on the field in Lima and Cusco. For sure when we started the idea of free walking tours in Peru, it was only us (Richard & Elvis) as we became more popular over the last three years, we expanded our team to other like-minded people to be part of our team such as Pedro and Angela in Cusco.

Do you operate directly tours in Cusco, Lima and Arequipa?

Cusco: All free walking tours and custom tours are operated directly by us, except some group services that might be operated by third parties, to make it more affordable, whatever goes in Cusco we will do our best, we don’t try.

Lima: Because of the succeed that we have in the tourism Market in Peru, this year 2018 we are also operating DIRECTLY all free walking tours and custom tours in Lima, you can always see our reviews on google business and facebook, and book in advance.

Arequipa: At this beautiful city, we are partnered with free tour downtown Arequipa, this is the team that operates all our free walking tours in this city.

ELVIS PERALTA

This is Elvis “The King”, Co-Founder and your Tour Guide, together with my brother Richard we started the walking tours and bespoke tours with the aim of making top quality tours.

I studied tourism and hospitality business at the college, graduated and well- experienced in this outlet, every time I do my guiding I follow one motto: Few people really dislike history, it is merely the way it’s presented to you. Using my studies, my passion to my job, my experience and my willingness to do my best, I make people feeling good to great, more than offering tours I do offer emotions.

I have conducted well over 2000 tours of Cusco, having got almost 400 reviews on tripadvisor with my name, I have the city at my fingertips, ready to be shared.
I do speak well English since I have worked for many years in the USA in the hospitality business.

“This is a must for everyone new to the city. We did the 10am Downtown tour with Elvis – a local and super enthusiastic guide.”
