Navidad is one of the best guides in archaeology, nature and the local traditions, He was my guide when I visited Machu Picchu and my experience with him was absolutely amazing, he is very knowledgeable, patient, helpful, great English and has a very good sense of humor. I am sure I am not the only one talking positive things about him, if you ever visit Cusco or Machu Picchu you should contact him, he is local so he will be the best host for you.
