Unfortunately the tour was a disaster. We had a Spanish speaking guide who could not understand any English. He promised there would be an English speaking guide in Chavin de Huantar, but there wasn't. So we could not understand anything from the program. Both the guide and the driver were rushing the group at every stop. The atmosphere was negative. After lunch the guide had discussed with Spanish speaking customers and they had decided to skip the museum visit. So we never got that experience. The local tour office didn't turn out to be very professional.
