Free Tours by Foot Cusco – Inkan Milky Way SRL.

A SMALL FAMILY COMPANY – The touch of Local Indigenous 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 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 offer tours at no upfront costs for one important reason, so that everyone can enjoy a fun and educational guided tour.

When we first started, it was only the two of us leading the tours. As we became more popular over the last two years, we expanded our team to other like-minded people to be part of our team. You will find us guiding you (as we have always been) and answering all your queries by email or phone to ensure that extra bit of personal attention.

Working everyday on new tours as well as constantly learning and discovering what Cusco has to offer, is one of the things that we think makes our job one the great ones in the world. Apart from doing best walking tours, we do also offer best customized-private tours with reasonable prices, including best indoor touristic spots within Cusco city and surrounding areas.Read more about our story below

Cusco Free walking tour guide:Elvis


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.”
