    An Unforgettable Dreamy Experience
    , Jan 2021
    I was very fortunate to be able to visit Peru within a small window of availability during this long COVID nightmare. The experience lingers like a beautiful dream. Fredi did everything he could to work within the ever changing restrictions so I could have almost the entire amazing experience. Jordi, the driver greeted me at the airport , which is the most comforting feeling when you disembark in a foreign land not speaking the language. Fredi carefully explained all the details to me immediately upon my arrival at the Hotel Ruinas which was very nice and just two blocks from the Plaza des Armas. The sacred Valley and Machu Picchu were even more magical than I imaged. I often got the impression I was the only foreign tourist in all of Peru. Fabriizo, my guide was extremely knowledgeable about his second home (Machu Picchu) and made sure I got the best pictures possible. I learned so much that I keep thinking about and researching. It was hard to turn that last corner and not see Machu Picchu any more. Do spring the extra money for the Vista train. The seats are spacious and the windows give you a lovely view of the near rainforest. Jordi, the driver was very nice and friendly and never caused me worry at all. I felt very safe. He also shared a lot of interesting details on the ride back to Cusco. Lake Titicaca was beautiful as well. The trip was shorter than it would have been because of COVID restrictions, but I so enjoyed being out on the Lake and seeing the floating islands and how the people live there. It was so peaceful. Bring lots of soles because the women make beautiful crafts that are of high quality and you will love the memories they bring back to you. Also bring sunscreen. Fredi even found me a guide to take me around some Inca areas outside of Puna during my free time there. I wish I could live this whole experience all over again.

    Great tour but no way to leave Peru
    , Mar 2020
    Our tour was great. We enjoyed the sights and thought highly of the professional guides and drivers. Unfortunately, our 6 day tour was cut short by 2 days for the excursion to Puno. The Peruvian govt. stopped all flights out of here. Our tour operator, Fredi, was in contact with us. He sent his very helpful agent, Luis, to help us get a required 15 day hotel reservation. Fredi’s co. will pay for the 2 nights lost. We pay for 13 days.The problem now is we are on lock down in Cusco and our Mar. 24th Jet Blue flight back to U.S. from Lima is cancelled. We are without any information about our status as U.S. citzens and how to get out. Does anyone know we are here? Can you please help us? We need information as we are stranded. Thank you.
    Fabulous Trip
    , Feb 2020
    After searching many tours on-line I chose the Best of Peru 6-Day Tour. I found it to be excellent in every way. I was travelling by myself and found their friendly staff were there to greet me at every stop along the way. The hotels in Cusco, Agues Clients and Puno were clean and well located. It may have been because I was travelling in the off season but I was not with the same people for the entire 6 days. Instead different people joined the tour in each of the various cities. I actually really enjoyed this as it gave me a chance to travel with people from London, Poland, Germany and USA. The tour guides were also different in each of the locations. I can't say enough about the quality of the guides - they were knowledgeable and willing to answer any question I would ask. They would offer me helpful suggestions of places to eat and other sites I may want to check out on my free time. The 6 days were generally long days with early morning starts but it is how they cover all there is to see in a short period of time. I would highly recommend using Machupicchu Latin American Journeys to get a good overview of Peru. I did spend 5 days in Lima following the tour to attend my nephew's wedding and stayed at Ibis Larco Miraflores hotel - this was an excellent hotel and very reasonably priced.

    Peru trip
    , Jul 2019
    Awesome vacation. Transportation and guides were prompt. Tours were very informational. Guides knew the history. Felt a little rushed during Machu Picchu tour but still great experience. All hotels were clean and in great locations for walking. Favorite was floating islands on Lake Titicaca and island of Tequile. Best trip.

    Jam packed
    , Jun 2019
    Pros: we saw so much in 6 days, the guides were very knowledgeable, and the itinerary was well planned out. The hotels were all very nice and the included meals were delicious. Cons: we had different guides pretty much every day, sometimes felt rushed, and weren't given an option for lunch one day and had to buy the most expensive meal we experienced during our trip. Overall we were satisfied with our trip and would recommend to others.
    Beautiful Adventure
    , Jun 2019
    This was a beautiful active tour. The itinerary and reviews were accurate. We flew into Lima and did a day for ourselves there which I recommend. When we flew into Cusco a guide met us at airport and gave us a packet with our detailed itinerary, tickets etc. Everything went exactly as planned. Hotels were great. Pick ups were exactly as scheduled, and you have a point of contact every day. Be aware this is a very ACTIVE tour, EARLY starts about 6am every day. Lots of walking, stairs, uneven surfaces. But you will not be disappointed! We loved every part! You will appreciate the beautiful countryside, mountains in the clouds, and history. Macchu was breathtaking and more expansive than i realized. One of my favorite days was also Lake Titicaca which was the most beautiful water and island. Took my 3 kids (ages 8-12). They loved it. We also flew back from Juliaca to avoid the all day drive to Cusco. Look up sites on Google, just like pictured.

    Best of Peru is a great description!
    , May 2019
    Well organized, excellent , very knowledgeable guides, small groups, focused on the best and most interesting the Cusco and Puno regions have to offer
    Good to excellent!
    , Mar 2019
    The trip is well organized, especially pick up at airport , hotel, bus stations. The highlight to us was visiting 4 islands at Titicaca lake instead of Machupichu. Puno, our guide at Titicaca Lake , is very knowledgeable and gave us the history and culture of each island. He explained to us the plantation along the walking path. He organized us a culture dance and we wore traditional dress and learnt the amanyani dance. The overnight bus back from puno to Cusco is very comfortable. The seat was roomy and we have a lot of leg room.

    Great Experience!
    , Oct 2018
    From start to finish, the tour operators, guides, hoteliers, drivers, and everyone in-between was helpful, courteous, and attentive. The experience was wonderful in itself, but the people around us made it all the more better. October weather was perfect (for us), as it only rained a couple of times, and at night. Well worth every penny. THANK YOU!
