How to organize a Peru Tour
We are now back in England. I must tell you that my husband and myself have many wonderful memories of Peru and the people we met. The trip arranged ticked all the boxes and a lot more besides. The hotels chosen were excellent with comfortable beds and very helpful and friendly staff, plus a good choice of Peruvian food. The guides were exceptional - we saw and experienced many amazing things but we both feel that we were also given some insight into the "soul" of the country - and they all met expectations and much more.
We cannot thank Nicholas enough to the personal touches which included a birthday cake during our homestay on Lake Titicaca, and the delicious chocolates at our hotel in Puno for our anniversary.
I am so thankful that Nicholas was in charge of my trip!! He moved hotels, entrance days, bus tickets, and train tickets to ensure that we got to Machupicchu on our trip. There was a protest blocking the roads on several days and Nicholas made sure we got through without ANY problems. Our trip was seamless and our local guide was absolutely excellent!!! We have some friends who visited the same week we did and they ran into several problems trying to make the trip on their own without help. EXCELLENT trip and service!!Read More Read More Less
excellent, we have so much fun, the food was outstanding!!!
We cannot say enough about Nicholas's expertise and attention to detail in planning our trip to Peru. It was truly the journey of a lifetime! Every step of the way from Lima to Arequipa and Colca Canyon, to Cusco and the Sacred Valley, and to the mystical sanctuary of Machu Picchu, we enjoyed wonderful accommodations, superb local guides, and delightful Peruvian meals. Nicholas arranged our tour as a culinary adventure in addition to everything else, and we learned so much about food preparation and cooking using traditional ingredients and methods. The local markets were fascinating; we've never seen such overwhelming diversity of indigenous agricultural products!
Julio, our local guide in Cusco and the Sacred Valley, was absolutely terrific! His knowledge and joyful appreciation of Andean culture and history was simply contagious and helped to make our experiences in the highlands unforgettable. And we don't want to forget to mention our local guide at Colca Canyon, Elfer, who was also so knowledgable and personable. Our takeaway from booking our trip with Nicholas and the local agency is that they offer the best in matching clients with local guides and services.
Thank you, Nicholas, Julio, Elfer, and all the lovely people of Peru who welcomed us and made our journey so rewarding!
