USA Trip to Machu Picchu
We had a wonderful time while in your country and the care and service provided by Peru Vacation Tours was excellent. It was great to be greeted by a smiling, friendly face at each new stop along our journey. The tour guides were very professional and spoke excellent English.
We would recommend Peru Vacation Tours to anyone wanting to visit Machu Picchu, the surrounding area or any place in Peru! What an outstanding, once in a lifetime experience..you made our trip very easy and quite memorable.
Canada Travel Peru in style, on any budget!
Peru, a magical place with amazing scenery and wonderful people. But where does one start looking when the travel bug bites?
Unlike the all-inclusive resorts that are plentiful with deals on the internet travelling to Peru is quite a bit different. We wanted to ensure that we work with a reputable company. A couple of tips when searching for a good travel agency include customer service, location when you\'re on vacation and a good deal.
Our two-person tour started and ended in Lima. Peru Vacation Tours was instrumental in making our trip a memorable one. They specialize in luxury and budget tours. Being an English speaking traveller in a Spanish world, we had no problem communicating and the tour guides provided by Peru Vacation Tours were fluent in English. Every time we reached our new location, a friendly guide would greet us with coupons, maps and tips for the day or two that we stayed. On occasion, we accompanied other tours on day trips. Some of the tours were Spanish-speaking exclusively and our guide came along as a translator so we didn\'t miss out on anything.
Another great tip when traveling is the balance between modes of transportation. Peru Vacation Tours made sure that we took the train or bus when there were scenery and the plane when we had to get to our destination with speed.
Travel doesn\'t always go according plan. When we had to change hotels, we were able to call the Peru Vacation Tours and they answered the phone. I was pleasantly surprised when I didn\'t have to press 1, 2, 5, 8 as options to direct my call. The local representative was able to help us right away and we were able to continue our tour without any interruption. They even called the hotel at night to ensure that we were on schedule and on track with the new itinerary.
Thinking of travelling to Peru? I recommend, without reservation, Peru Vacation Tours!
USA Trip to Peru
I am responding to you regarding our Peru vacation and all the travel assistance provided by your company. I can assure you our entire trip was perfect - in every way. Diana Suttin did an admirable job in planning the tours and trips for us. Diana was very easy to work with and always available if we had any questions or requests for changes in our schedule.
All the hotels met our expectations and the food, and those people who served us, were truly nice. Actually, all the people we came into contact with in Peru were courteous and treated us very well. One of the best things was how well everything was timed and how all schedules were met on time. When we were to meet someone at a new destination, they were always there to met us and explain what we doing.
Peru is a great country to visit and we hope we have the opportunity again. And if we do, we will certainly contact Peru Vacations - your company did an outstanding job. I would recommend your company to anyone wishing to plan a trip to Peru.
Thanks very much.
USA We had a fabulous time in Peru
I am sorry it has taken so long to write to you. We had a fabulous time in Peru
and your company was excellent and on time on all occasions! You will be highly
recommended by us. There was one incident out of our control at the Cusco airport
on our way back to Lima. Our plane ended up coming in VERY late. And guess what?
One of your representatives was STILL there waiting for us. This was amazing and
deeply appreciated. I am planning on going again next year around the same dates...
end of April. We particularly loved the Hacienda we stayed at in Sacred Valley and the
place in Cusco was great too. Next time we go to Aguas Callientes I would like to stay
at one of the larger hotels near the bus station. It was quite a hike up to the hotel you
placed us in. Thank you for your part in making our trip an exceptional one and please
thank the company for their professionalism, knowlege and promptness!
I will be happy to have you plan our or my next excursion.
USA Thank you so much for the lovely trip!
Indeed, everything went well, my tour guide was very helpful and always on time or before. I was very happy with everything and will recommend your services to all my friends.
USA Dear Diana,
We had a wonderful trip, Peru is a truly amazing place. All the tours and the Inca Trail hike were great and the guides and pickups were timely and courteous. We want to thank you for all your help in organizing the trip. I will be happy to fill out some comments regarding your company on TripAdvisor.
USA Greetings from Washington!

Dan and Nikki Wood
Canada Hi Diana
It was absolutely amazing. Danielle and I are going to send a picture and a testimonial that you can use for your website! We cannot thank you enough. Peru knows how to treat their tourist. The only thing missing was that we didnt get to meet you. We feel so lucky to have experienced Peru and done it through your agency as we met different tour groups every day and different people. We loved it!

Oleg and Thomas from NYC
USA hiking to Macchu Picchu last week - super experience !
we flew from NYC to Lima, then on to Cuzco. Were picked up and started our hike - great food, excellent English speaking guide (very friendly and well educated), solid hiking and sleeping material provided... Saw plenty of animals, almost no other tourists ! The guide knew when and where to go to avoid the masses, even in Macchu Picchu !
Stayed in an excellent hotel in Aguas Calientes and took the train back to Olientotambo. Feeling very refreshed before returning home.
Our vacation was organized by PERU VACATION TOURS - ask for Connie ! they followed us during the trip and kept on asking how they could improve or help us out.
Oleg and Thomas from NYC
USA we want to thank you for making our Peru vacation, a memorable one
We are back in Miami, after experiencing a magical trip in Peru. First of all, we want to thank you and your group for a professional and well organized vacation. It made it all very easy and we felt right at home from the beginning. Everything went pretty much according to the itinerary you organized and there were no unpleasant surprises. Our stay in Lima was delightful. We experienced excellent dining with spectacular views.

Jan and Tony
USA It was WONDERFUL
I am so sorry that it has taken us so long to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip. It was WONDERFUL!!!! Even with the rain and cold, we still have told everyone that it was the best trip we have ever taken. We are telling everyone about your company and the great service we received.
Another thing about that hotel, we arrived on Tony's birthday. I did not draw it to their attention, but at dinner, they turned off the lights and brought him a cake. Everyone sang to him. We were very pleased and SURPRISED! The reception desk worker must have noticed when she copied his passport.
The catamaran-Did you know that we were the ONLY 2 passengers? We had our own private guide and the whole ship was just for us! It was FANTASTIC!!!
New York USA we enjoyed the trip
We had a wonderful and very successful vacation, thanks to your efforts.
Everything went pretty much according to the itinerary you developed
and there were no unpleasant surprises (so to speak).
Overall, we enjoyed the trip. Almost all the Guides were good and
effective. The selection of Corto Maltese at the Amazon was very good.
Alicja and Anthony Lipka
Chicago USA We will recommend you and your company to our friends
It is already two weeks since we returned from Peru and we cherish the memories of the wonderful trip we took. The whole trip was very well organized, everything went according to schedule, on time, smooth, and conducted in professional way. Our guides were experts on their subjects. They answered all our Incas history and current events questions to details, and they had great personalities, that we felt as we knew them forever. The accommodations were also superb and in great locations, close to the attractions.
We will recommend you and your company to our friends to help them with their travel arrangements. Whenever we decide to take another trip to South America we will definitely ask you again for assistance.
Thank you again for making our trip such great and memorable experience.
Alicja and Anthony Lipka
USA I will definitely recommend your services
WOW that one word that describes what we experienced during our visit of
Peru last week. All the places we visited, artifacts we saw, history we
learned, interactions we had with local people and fellow tourists, and mother
nauture gift of excellent weather that prevailed for the entire duration,
summed up to making it one of the topmost memorable events of our lifetime.
And, of course, all of that did only happen (and certainly were enhanced) by a
well planned tour schedule, good accommodations, transportation and other
logistics - all went very efficiently and smoothly, no complaints at all.
Thank you immensely from the bottom of my heart for your efforts and
cooperation in putting it together so well.
Personally, Iam delighted to make your acquaintance as a friendly and nice person.
We cannot seem to stop talking about our trip to our friends and family. One
friend of ours, who had been thinking of visiting Peru for some time, is quite
inspired and wants to plan a trip soon. I will definitely recommend your
services to him for the arrangements. Our son and daughter-in-law also have
similar plans for not too distant future and, of course, they will have your number.
Wishing you the best in your life and all your endeavors.
UK You're the best!!!
Thanks for your note and invoice on the hotel. Hopefully Continental
will reimburse us for expenses.
We will definitely leave a great comment on Trip Advisor. We thoroughly
enjoyed our vacation and I'm sorry that it's in the past instead of
future. It was wonderful!
Here are two of my favorite photos from our trip (attached):
Thank you again for your efforts and great response when we really needed
your help. You're the best!!!
Lori Thomassen / Jeff Meskey
Utah, USA Thanks for your help Stephanie
Stephanie, As you can see, Jeff and I had a great time in Peru. Usually, we travel independantly. And twice, we've taken a group tour, with about 26 other people. The itinerary you put together gave us the best of both worlds. We felt like we were independant, as we weren't always glopped together with the same 26 people. But it was so great to arrive in a new destination and have someone waiting to transport us to our hotel, with instructions for the next day's tour. The tours you put together were good, as was the food. I have already recommended you to a friend.
Thanks for your help Stephanie. Your country and people are beautiful.

Rahul and Agraja
BLOOMFIELD, CT, USA Stephanie was very patient to customize the trip each time.
Me and my wife recently had a wonderful trip to Peru. It all worked out very fast for us. We started planning our trip on 10th Dec 2010. And we were planning to fly to Peru just two weeks later! We called up Stephanie at Peru Vacation Tours to help us out in planning our trip. We had a tight budget. With just two weeks to fly, Stephanie did a great job in planning a wonderful trip for us.
We had several phone call and email exchanges before the trip. I was really picky with places to see...and Stephanie was very patient to customize the trip each time.
We spent one night in Lima (Hotel Ramada at Airport), three in Cuzco (Terra Andina Hotel), One night in the Sacred Valley and one night at Machu Picchu (El Mapi Hotel, Aguas Calientes). Peru Vacation tours suggested the best hotels for us, they booked the domestic flight reservations, train bookings to Machu Picchu and local tours.
All the hotels and local tours were great! I would like to particularly mention one incidence. Our flight from Cuzco back to Lima was late. We reached Lima at 3:00pm when we were supposed to reach at 11:00am. We were supposed to take a group tour of Lima at 2:00pm. Obviously we missed it. Stephanie at the last moment arranged a private Lima tour for us with a guide. The guide took us around Lima and made sure we do not miss the tour of fascinating Lima city.
They were also very helpful in rearranging our plan in Cuzco when my wife had a bit of altitude sickness.There are many tour companies in Peru. We had just made one selection based on our budget and needs. It turned out to be great and the tour company accommodated changes due to flight delay and made sure we had a fun Peru Trip.

Don and Elaine DeRuyck
Minnesota, USA Thank you for a memorable 50th wedding anniversry
Our trip to Peru far exceeded our expectations.Each day we anticipated our experience would be anticlimactic and each day continued to be over the top. We loved everything Diana suggested and the properties she chose were incredible. Arequipa, Colca, Puno, Titicaca, Uros and Taquile, Andean Explorer, Cusco, Sacred Valley,Hiram Bingham Machu Picchu and Lima. Diana was thorough and punctual in responding to our many concerns and questions. When meeting her in the hotel we fell in love with her warm personality. Our trip concluded with a wonderful dinner arranged by Diana at the lovely Rosa Nautica.
Thank you for a memorable 50th wedding anniversry. What more could one ask
for than riding on the Hiram Bingham to Machu Picchu in a stunning setting.
Thank you Diana
Don and Elaine DeRuyck from Minnesota, USA
UK You were correct in every way!
Thank you once again for all that you did in organising our spectacular trip to Peru. Since our return, we have not stopped talking of our experiences in your beautiful country and have absolutely no problem in recommending Peru Vacation Tours to friends who wish to visit Peru in the near future,
From the original contact phone call, right up to the penultimate day of our tour when we were privileged to meet you, your organisational skills and attention to detail were evident. Your advice on each of the hotels in which we were to stay was invaluable and trusted. You were correct in every way! Every day was planned to perfection and each of the tour guides were informative, punctual and friendly. It was blissful not to have to worry about where we were meant to be at any given time. This was all taken care of. Even down to reorganising our pick up from the airport because of our missed flight from Madrid owing to the French air traffic controllers. Everything was perfect. So much so, we want everyone to know we have put our next South American trip (to Argentina and Brazil) into your capable hands. Roll on next September/October.
Again, thank you.
California USA beautiful country
Thank you for helping put together such an amazing trip! The memories will last a lifetime. I was thrilled that we got to meet you and thank you in person after all the questions I had leading up to the trip and then having been taken
care of so well. You always had the answer and were able to accommodate and guide me in the right direction. We felt taken care of at every turn which allowed us to relax and enjoy our vacation in your beautiful country.
Scott and Jen Haen
Garden Grove, CA USA We had a great time!
I would like to thank you again for all that you did for us during our trip to Peru. We had a great time! Since our return, we have shared so many of our stories with family and friends and I've been promoting your company for the way you handled our predicament, especially because you were able to accommodate our needs. Another family that we met (also stuck in El Salvador with us) lost 2 days of their tour and I don't think they were pleased. Of course, I told them about your company. Anyway, I would like to share some of our pictures with you.
Miami , USA We just loved the tour
Peru Vacation Tour was the key to the success of our trip, from the time that we
contacted the office and spoke to you, until the last day in Cusco with our
great trip advisor Robert. All of our tour guides were very knowledgeable of
what they were showing us. Mr. Barrios from Nasca did go the xtra mile to help
us and make us feel welcome!
We just loved the tour and the whole experience of Peru, people, nature, music
and food. Peru is a wonderful country, with great people who are very humble and
friendly. Arequipa, the white city, what a great place! The Inca culture and
knowledge they had in 1400 s is very fascinating to me, and what I loved most
out of our trip was Cusco, the real Inca city and the Sacred Valley which goes
along the Urubamba river. There is some magic in this place, as if the
surrounding hills and nature know and keep all the secrets. The Nazca Lines was
a breath taking experience, Machu Picchu viewing was an amazing experience that
we would never forget.
One of our favorite places was the Lake Titicaca and the island of Uros and
Taquila, with hard working and inventive people living there. Colca Canyon was
another place in which you could feel the tranquility and sounds of this
beautiful country, and great, loving people.
My son Eric is 11 years old, the piece of history he learned by traveling to
Peru, is something he would never forget.
Thank you so much for preparing this wonderful trip!
Sara, Julia & Eric
UK The personal attention was exceptional.
We had a fantastic trip thanks to Peru Vacation Tours. We did not expect such a personal touch. Diana selected hotels for us based on discussion prior to the trip and did an excellent job catering to our desires.We are all vegetarian & the food that was provided on the Inka Trail was well above our expectations! Peru Vacation Tours personalized our trip which started in Lima, stopped in Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and to Machu Picchu via the Inka Trail. Every tour, bus ticket, and train ticket was prearranged along with a guide that picked us up at our hotel to deliver us to each event. Each guide had excellent knowledge of the area's we were visiting with good english. Our guide on the trail was Juan. His service towards us was second to none! I can not praise him highly enough! His knowledge,humour & caring attitude really made the trip all the better for us.The personal attention was exceptional. I highly recommend using Peru Vacation Tours. Well done Diana & all of your team.
USA we will definitely book with your company again
Hello Diana, You and your company were awesome in every way. You made sure we had someone to guide us every step of our trip; anyone associated with your company was great! If you were not our contact our trip would have been a much greater disappointment. We are the ones that stressed ourselves by trying to do so much in 2 weeks. The accommodations were all good and we had no troubles with guides, transfers or hotels. I was amazed that you actually answered your cell phone when we found ourselves stranded in Panama City because of cancelled flights; that was a great relief since we couldnt help but be nervous since we found you and booked everything over email with a company that is not USA based. We honestly worried we would show up in Lima and no one would be thereat¦..that of course was not the case and you were on top of things the entire 2 weeks we were there. I couldnt think of anyway your company could have served us any better then you did. We were always greeted with a smile and everyone was on time when meeting with us or picking us up. I would highly recommend your company for anyone heading to South America! Let me know what other areas you cover because we will definitely book with your company again if we are traveling in an area you provide services. Thank you, Always at your service,
USA It was definitely a trip of a lifetime
Thank you so much for such a wonderful adventure, it was excellent. I was glad we decided
limit our tours, we were both so exhausted and would not have enjoyed it as
much had there been more. The view from Machu Picchu was breath taking and
the night there so peaceful. We both wanted to stay forever. It was
definitely a trip of a lifetime.
Thank you again for making dreams come true.

NC.USA Peru Vacations was the personal attention and follow-up
As we told you in LIma, we loved our trip to Peru. We can't thank you enough for all the hard work you did to ensure that everything went smoothly.
One of the things that most impressed me about working with you and Peru Vacations was the personal attention and follow-up you gave us. Before and during our trip it was as if you were with us, making sure things went well. We enjoyed every aspect -- the beauty, the history, the food and the people of Peru. We hope to return on day to hike the Inca Trail and explore other parts of the country.
Serbia Dear Stephanie
Thank you, we managed to get back fine to USA and we just loved the tour and the whole experience of Peru, people, nature, music and food. Peru is a wonderful country, with great people who love children (luckily), otherwise it would be bad for us as you can see. The Inca culture and knowledge they had in 1400 s is very fascinating to me, and what I loved most out of our trip was Cusco, the real Inca city and the Sacred Valley which goes along the Urubamba river. When you are there, you feel the eternity and some magic in this place, as if the surrounding hills and nature know and keep all the secrets. Of course, Machu Picchu is an amazing Inca residence on the top of the mountain. Urubamba and the hacienda where we had lunch, was the best place I ever had lunch at, listening to relaxing andean music and looking at the vicunas and beautiful grass and nature while eating.
We also liked Lake Titicaca and the island of Uros and Taquile, with hard working and inventive people living there. Another place we loved was Colca Canyon and our great Pozo del Cielo ethnic hotel. I almost cried when they brought us to the room the Thermofors to heat our cold feet at night. Beautiful country, and great, loving people, who also have lots of taste and beautiful jewelry.
Thanks again, Radmila Runic with sons Duda and Alex (Mima) and friend and nanny Lula.
Everett, Washington. USA Dear Stephanie
Everett, Washington. USA
Best of Fortunes and Merry Christmas, Stephanie.
Without a command of the language and being unseasoned world travelers, we had some reluctance about booking our trip to Peru. It worked out splendidlyl in every way because of Peru Vacation Tours.
Our initial inquiry was immediately followed up with a phone call from Lima by Stephanie who spoke competent English. She was tireless in supplying facts and information in the sweetest and non-forced manner. She arranged a custom tour for us which included an excursion to Amazonia, and Cusco surrounding areas, as well as Lima.
Each step or the way, we were greeted and watched over by wonderful guides who spoke very understandable English. Guillermo in Lima, Lucy in Amazonia, Roberto, Virjullio and Angel in Cusco. Sorry if I misspell the names. Tipping the guides is customary but these did not self promote the custom like I ve experienced elsewhere. Each, kindly accepted what was offered. The guides even took us back to the airports and stayed until we got our boarding passes.
The acid test for this tour company came when my wife and I had a flight delayed, then cancelled (bird problem with the jet), all the passengers were scattered to many flights. We departed four hours late so I figured we would have to get a taxi for the long cross town ride to the hotel in teeming Lima. But when we arrived, there was a placard with my name on it as we deplaned. Let me tell you that was gratifying.
Peru Vacation Tours is a great value I recommend them without any reservations. Special thanks to Stephanie who even came to see us at the hotel on her "off work" hours to make sure we were OK.
Atlanta, USA Dear Diana
On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for a wonderful trip to Peru you helped organize. Everything went very smoothly. All our guides and group representatives were very knowledgable and helpful. Thank you for the wonderful time in Peru.
This Thanksgiving my family spent in Peru. With help of Peru Vacation Tours, we had a spectacular trip. Ive done a lot of research on travel agencies in Peru and the US, but Im very happy that my pick was Peru Vacation Tours. Diana has done an amazing job planning a 9 day trip for 6 people. She was very flexible with our schedule and wishes. She made many great recommendations to our itinerary. All the hotels chosen by Diana located in the great location, had helpful staff and great rooms. Our guides were always on time, spoke good English and were very knowledgeable. We were very pleased with customer service and professionalism of Peru Vacation Tours. We would definitely recommend this travel agency to other travelers who are planning to go to Peru.
USA We will recommend your agency to anyone we know that is travelling to Peru.
Diana, we're back to normal here. I started school today and Ken and Melitta have been back to work for a while. Thank you for a wonderful trip. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.
We had some reservations about travelling without a full time bilingual tour guide in a country in which we did not speak the language but we were very happy with way things worked
The hotels we fine or good. Every one was clean; of course we liked some better than others. In Nazca we had suites so that was very nice. The hotel in Chivay was very picturesque and the hot water bottles were a very nice touch. It would be an excellent idea for hotels in other colder areas such as Puno. Staying in the former monastery in Ica was a fun experience. The hotel in Cusco was interesting because it had been a Spanish mansion
We appreciated the way you and your staff kept checking to ensure everything was going well. The lady in Arequipa and the man in Cusco were particularly good. They did not take us on tours but checked to see that the tours were going well that we had no questions.
We will recommend your agency to anyone we know that is travelling to Peru. Our experience booking with you has made me more comfortable about booking over the internet and travelling without a full time tour guide.
Thanks again for everything.
USA Thank you very much for the best vacation of my life.
Sorry that it has taken so long to respond with my comments about our trip.
I would like to start by saying "Thank You" to Rosanna and Diana for all the help we received prior to the trip. The ease with which arrangements were made and the trip booked was first class. The trip itself was fantastic. The service was great from start to finish. All of the guides were excellent. I would like to make particular note of two. Eddie (our guide in the Sacred Valley) was wonderful. His knowledge of the sites and local history were wonderful and we could not have asked for a nicer, more likable gentleman. Secondly, Lordis (not sure of the spelling, but she was our guide on the Inca Trail) was super. She handled all issues with grace and was an excellent companion on the trail.
Thank you again for all of the hard work that went into making this trip a success for us. I would gladly recommend (and already have) your services to anyone looking for a world class vacation in Peru.
Thank you very much for the best vacation of my life.
USA Barbara and I had a wonderful time in Peru
Barbara and I had a wonderful time in Peru. Everything was excellent... the people were so nice and took very good care of us. Our hike on Salkantay trail was very organized and the food was excellent! Our tour guide (Mayra Montalvo) was the best!
it was a great trip!
Thank you again.

U.S.A Dear Diana
Thank you so much for all of your help in Lima and for personally taking us for a tour. You went above and beyond your duties and it will not be forgotten.
As for our 10 day trip in Peru, all of the hotels, tours, and guides were excellent. My favorite part of the tour were Lima and Cusco. Somer wants to come back to Lima and her favorite part were all of the animals.
Peru vacation tours did a fabulous job and i will recommend your company to my friends.
I attached the picture of you and Somer as well as a picture of the three of us in Colca canyon area.
Thank you again for making our trip to Peru unforgettable.

U.S.A Dear Diana
I wanted to take this opportunity to Thank Youfor making our dreams come true. Magical Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley and Cusco were fabulous.
As soon as we stepped foot off the plane in Cusco, Rolando Vargas was there to meet us. He was such a welcomed site. Rolando was pleasant, knowledgeable, courteous and had a wealth of information for us. When he delivered us to the Casa Andina, he informed us to immediately drink the cocoa tea and to rest -- no activity. We did exactly what he told us to do. Rolando informed us that he would pick us up the next morning for our trip to the Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu.
The next morning, we met our guide, Angel Salazar. He was wonderful! He shared so much information with us regarding the people, culture, customs, history, and overall life experiences. Everywhere he took us we were so amazed. He made the entire trip very special. His knowledge of the Inca civilization, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu was astounding. I never walked so much in my entire life. We saw everything and we were so happy. We were very impressed. Angel is the best guide we have every had anywhere in our travels. In addition, all of his instructions were perfect.
Diana, the hotels were unbelievable. From the Casa Andina to the Hotel Pakaritampu to the Inkaterra we were treated like royalty. The staff at each hotel went above and beyond their normal duties.
Rolando was there to meet us when we arrived back in Poroy for our ride to Cusco. On our last day, he escorted us to the airport and check-in to make sure we were safe and sound.
Our memories of Cusco, Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu will last a life time. Again, from the bottom of my heart thank you so very much for all of your hard work and for making our dreams come true. You are the best! I know at times we were very worried about the particulars of the vacation but after traveling and having you handle everything, we didn,t have any worries. I will let all of my friends and everyone else know that Diana Suttin of Peru Vacations Tours is the way to book a vacation. If you ever need me as a reference, please do so.
Thank you again.

Autralia Dear Diana
The trip was fantastic !
Thank you for your help in putting it together.
Everything worked like clockwork.The agents in each City and the tour guides were all excellent, they spoke good English and were always there to meet us at the airports and hotels and to organise our trips each day.
The highlights of the trip were Machu Picchu, the floating islands on lake Titicaca and the Andes train which was 10 hours of absolute pleasure, comfort and fabulous scenery.
As I said before, the agents, ground staff and tour guides were all excellent and really helped to make for a fantastic and memorable holiday in beautiful Peru
Thank you again.

U.S.E Dear Diana
Where do I begin....OUR TRIP WAS AMAZING! It was absolutely the best family vacation we have ever been on. Your country is beautiful. We fell in love with Peru at first sight. The people, the culture, the food, the hospitality. It was more than we expected it to be. Right when we got off the plane, and each time we did there was always someone to greet us, on time and ready to transport us to our destination. Your program ran so smoothly! The amazon jungle was spectacular. Our tour guide Berli was fantastic. He really went the extra mile and made us feel very welcomed. Corto Maltes was phenomenal! The food was exquisite! Probably the best food of our entire trip. The tours and guides we had in Lima and Cusco were wonderful too! They were very informative and friendly. The hotels were perfect! We had more than needed at each place and all the staff were willing to do anything we asked for. We all miss Peru and cant wait to come back. When we do come back we will definetley book with Peru Vacation Tours again. You have been wonderful to us. Thanks a million for everything! iMuchos Gracias!
My appreciation to a wonderful trip to Lima and Cuzco and to Machu Pichu. Inspite of our flight cancellation, we were able to make a good tour. Machu Pichu was nice tour but the Sacred Valley tour was outstanding. Our tour guide did a very excellent tour. Francisco and his associate were very wonderful in providing services. Thanks for the Pizcu Sour. My Regards to all.

Mexico Dear Rossana
Dear Rosanna, We had a great time with your tour. Everything was organized and the people we worked with were all friendly and professional. We had an amazing guide at Lake Titicaca who spoke very good english. He was friendly and was there with us the whole time. I would recommend this tour to people. Peru was such an amazing country and will definitely visit again.

EE.UU Dear Diana
Cindy and I want to thank you for the marvelous trip (adventure) you put together for us on very short notice. We had a wonderful time in your beautiful country, and only wish we had much more time to see more. Everything went so smoothly, from the moment we touched down in Lima and were met by your representative to take us to our hotel. From then on, we never had to think about how to get from one place to another - only to thoroughly enjoy our experiences.
All your services were top-notch, and your suggestions for tours were great!
For anyone reading the testimonials on this site - don,t hesitate at all to call Diana, sit back, relax, and let her set up your adventures in this beautiful country!
Hopefully, we will return one day and see more of this picturesque country and it,s wonderful people!

USA Dear Diana
We were really impressed by the professional organization of the trip.
I never felt so secure and pampered, and surrounded by kindness and order.
Every activity was very organized and led by excellent guides, and all details were taken care of.
The hotels and food were of first quality and every special request was met with a smile and whenever possible with a positive answer.
Thank you Diana, we will definitely recommend your company to all our friends.
CALIFORNIA USA I had a wonderful time!
I thought my trip to Costa Rica was fantastic, this one was even better.
Our accomodations were great and we never had one problem with our schedule.
Everything went just as planned and the hotels were unique and charming.
Gracious and beautiful people live in Peru. Not once did we ever have any issues.
We felt very comfortable leaving our belongings at the hotels.
Machu Picchu was majestic and you went back in time and just stood still in Peru´s history.
I would go back in a heartbeat to see more.
USA Dear Diana
I just wanted to let you know that Margherita and I felt VERY well taken care of. I don´t think I´ve had another touring experience where everything went like clockwork. Rolando did a great job and took care of all the details so that we could spend the maximum amount of time just enjoying ourselves. I loved both the hotels, and the Inkaterra in Agua Calientes was a real find--worth a trip in and of itself.
I will definitely recommend you and your company to friends of mine who are thinking of traveling to Peru.
Hong Kong Dear Maria Elena
Dear Maria Elena
It was indeed very nice of you to take the trouble to come to have lunch with us, not to mention the beautiful gift, which has been gratefully received. It shall be put on one of the walls in our house.
I shall deal with my comments shortly as I have just returned to Hong Kong yesterday evening, so I am a bit snowundered with work at present.
It was a great trip and we are grateful to your invaluable assistance in organising the same.
With best wishes
EE.UU Dear Diana
Hi Luis and Diana,
I just received your email and wanted to thank you very much for your attention to our concerns and the quick handling of my credit refund request. I appreciate your assistance in this matter, and your efforts this past winter in putting together our trip itinerary. Our adventures in Peru were incredibly memorable. I’m happy to recommend your agency to folks who express an interest in visiting Peru after seeing my slide show!
Los Angeles Dear Diana
I would like to express my gratitude for the time and effort you invested to organize our trip. I would like to let you know that I have traveled a lot and my trip to Peru was the best one, thanks to you. During our trip besides the authentic beauty and mystery of your country I experienced genuine human warmth and hospitality.
I embraced every minute of my visit. Upon our return to LA, me and my son were left with unforgettable memories of our trip and longing to come back. thanks a lot for everything and I hope I will hear and see you again.

Canada Dear Rossana
Good Morning Rossana,
Rossana it was a privilege to work with you in planning our trip to Peru and to meet you in person was very special to us. Thank you for all your thoughtful, professional and caring approach to us during our stay in Peru. You are a very sweet gal, and it was a privilege to meet you. Rossana please feel free to add this testimonial to your webpage. Please forward this email to your supervisor as we would like him/her to know how well you did your job.
We have arrived home and I have my 687 pictures of Peru on a CD. We have shown them to family already. Thank you for an unforgettable one month stay in Peru. Everyday was filled with adventure and excitement as we explored Peru and all that it had to offer. All services were provided as planned and everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, never rushed us proving ample time to” take a side street”, even a little shopping and at the same time covering all scheduled activities and even additional ones. The punctuality of the transfers and tour guides was amazing. Peru Vacations has an excellent net work of people in the tourist industry. When a complication arose, it was rectified professionally and immediately. The 24hr phone number available to us made us feel valued. The Amazon was a sanctuary, the ecosystem invaluable. Machu Picchu was all we had expected and hoped for. We even climbed all those stairs!
Our month in Peru was the best ever. Thank you very much for all your hard work in putting this trip together for us. It was well planned, the pace was perfect.

Los Angeles USE Dear Diana
In the beginning of the month of August, 2008 my family and I went to eru for a week of vacation.
First of all, I would like to say thank you to the entire country for being so nice and hospitable not only to us but also to the thousands of tourists visiting Peru every day. We have regreated that our vacation has been planned only for a week.
And then, the most important part of our vacation even before we left our home country was definitely Peru Vacation Tour, the company which has arranged every single step for us in Peru.
As extremely picky tourists we had a lot of questions, concerns and requests while planning our tour, prior to our departure. We were very fortunate to work with our agent, Diana Suttin who patiently and with deep consideration assisted us in resolving all our concerns and questions demonstrating excellent customer service skills, courtesy and kindness.
Later, while in Lima, we met Diana and her partner, Pablo Sarria, who happened to be very professional in organizing tours all over South America and all over the world.
Both, Diana and Pablo are wonderful tour organizers and, the most important thing, ery very nice people.
We have already referred all our friends to Peru Vacation Tour which will make your stay in any destination enjoyable!
Thank you, guys!
Texas Dear Diana
I just want to let you that we felt like your personal guests of your country.
We felt like everything was planned to perfection.
ALL of your guides and representatives was extremely polite and courteous.We could not have been happier with all of them. They all treated us like kings and queens.
Every day we felt like were being personally shown all the exciting sites of your country.
Even with the strike that happened ,it was a great vacation. After it was over we looked back at it and realized that this part of the vacation was something that just happened and we just went with the flow of the event. It was an adventure that we could have never requested but was glad we experienced it.We will all remember it till we die.
If you ever want to use my name as a reference please do. I have nothing but praises for you and your company.
Thank you again for memories that will last a lifetime.
Missouri E.E.U.U Dear Katty
I just wanted to express our gratitude for such a marvelous vacation! We commented several times during the trip that you had done a wonderful job arranging our visit. We thoroughly enjoyed everything. We only wish that we had more time to stay in Peru! All of the transitions were wonderful, and everyone did such a lovely job assisting us. We couldn't have asked for more!
In particular, Raul stood out as an absolutely fantastic guide. He was with us for 1 1/2 days in Cusco, and taught us a tremendous amount about the history of the Sacred Valley. Would it be possible for you to send us his address so that we can write a personal thank you note? I will try to even write in Spanish!
Could you also extend our personal thanks to Enrique for his assistance in Puno? He was very kind to escort us through the airport, and taught me some great Peruvian slang!
Thanks again for everything. It was a true pleasure to meet you! I assure you that taking a Tour with the reliable "Peru Vacation tours" Travel Agency was for us the best choice!

Canada Dear Diana
Diana, Thankyou so much for making our trip to Peru an amazing experience.. It was so much more than we even hoped for. We have been so busy since we came home and appologize for not e-mailing you right away as we promised. The package you put together for us was unbelievable. We didn't expect such a high standard of service, the transfers, the hotels, the breakfasts, our guides especially Elohgio (guide for the trail) were all excellent, we got to know the Peruvian people through them and fell in love with your country. We know we will be comming back because there is so much more for us to see and we will of course make all our arrangements through you. It was wonderful to meet you and talk face to face. We were all so impressed with what you did. Thankyou again !!!!! We loved all the tours but didn't expect the Imperial Trail to be so difficult, Elohgio was so patient and understanding with us, when we reached Machu Picchu however it was the most incredible feeling of accomplishment. We will carry the memory with us forever and would highly recommend you and your services to anyone going to South America. Possibly next year we may want to see Iguazzu Falls, Lake Titticaca, Arequipa and Easter Island (I know this may not be possible in one trip, but we spoke to people in Nazca that did do this.)
Thankyou again Diana for all your help.

L.A. California USA Maria Elena
We just arrived home this morning. The whole tour was fantastic. Everything went as planned. You did a good job of organizing. Thank you for changing the plans at the last minute. I was a little worried just before we left, but we had no problems.
The tour to Machupicchu was the highlight for me.
The hotel in Cuzco was great; also the breakfast buffets. The guides were all knowledgeable and I had many questions for them.
Thank you again for your great service.
Bath,England Dear Diana
The trip to peru was truly a once in a lifetime experience, the people, food, hotel and experiences were all great. The planning and organisation perfect. there were never any serious problems and never did I feel any regret in coming. I truly want to express my delight with the planning and the customer serice I recieved. All the t's were crossed and the i's dotted, nothing was left out, from bookings to transportation. Not once did I need to lift a finger nor make a phone call concerning preparations. it really takes a large weight off your shoulders allowing one to enjoy the holiday itself without hassling over paper work. I really think it was worth every penny I paid for and more. I truly wish to thank you for your hospitality and your efforts for making this trip a great experience.
New York, USA It has been a wonderful trip, all four of us enjoyed it very much. All services were provided as planned and everyone was extremely helpful and friendly.
Hello Maria, It has been a wonderful trip – all four of us enjoyed it very much. All services were provided as planned and everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The guide we had in Arequipa and Colca canyon is on top of our list – she was so knowledgeable, friendly, never rushed anyone proving ample amount of time to explore the attractions and at the same time covering all scheduled activities and even additional ones. All hotels were very good – very clean, with friendly and helpful staff. The food in hotels and included buffet lunches was very good. Also, every guide was happy to provide us with recommendations where to go for dinner. We also enjoyed the jungle lodge a lot – it was absolutely magical place, with excellent service and great interpreter who took us on all the hikes and trips in the preserve.
If you ask us to come up with one thing that we would change in the whole trip – it would be taking away one free day in Cuzco and adding it to Machu Picchu visit. It was such an amazing place that we wish we had some more time there.
Thank you very much for putting this trip together for us. We met so many interesting people on our way – both from Peru and also tourists from all over the world. This trip was very different from all other places we’ve visited before and we will never forget it.

Oregon,usa Dear Maria Elena. Thanks so much for making the arrangements for our great week in Peru. We weren't expecting the personal attencion we received in Arequipa or Cusco!
Thanks so much for making the arrangements for our great week in Peru. We weren’t expecting the personal attention we received in Arequipa or Cusco! It was so nice to have guides who knew the area so well and were willing to adapt to the time and interests we had. It would be hard to say which day was our favorite. We were so amazed by the tour to Chivay and the ColcaCanyon. Machu Picchu was all that we had expected and hoped for. We were also glad you continued to make sure throughout our time in Peru, that things were running smoothly. When complications arose, you took care of it honestly and professionally. Thank you so very much! All in all we would definitely contact Peru Vacations if we are to make another trip to Peru. You did a great service for us. We plan to keep in touch with our Arequipa guide—we are friends now! I am attaching several pictures. Sincerely, Karin Cochran Corvallis, Oregon

I apologize for the late response. First I want to say that our trip to Peru was wonderful! We really enjoyed it. Will, our guide, was great and his English was really good so that helped alot. We had a great group of people in our group and the food was really good as well. The hike was definitely challenging but worth it. The views and mountains were beautiful. Machu Picchu was spectacular. I would definitely recommend this trip to others. Nancy De Forrest
Bremmen, Germany Dear Peru Vacation Tours
We want to thank you for making our trip to Peru unforgettable.
Every destiny we met will stay in our memories just like the wonderful people who greeted us during all of our transfers throughout Lima, Puno, Arequipa, Cusco, and Machu Picchu.
We loved our trip to Lake Titicaca, the Colca Cayon and of course Machu Picchu was incredible!
Peru Vacation Tours is incredibly well organized; they always solved any problem that we could have.
We tell everyone if they ever go to Peru.

I’d like to write you and thank you for the wonderful time we had in Peru. Our visits to the Nazca Lines and Machu Picchu ruins were just amazing. The hotels were excellent, the location is good and the food was quite simply delicious. Our guide was very friendly and always punctual. He helped us all the time and we are satisfied with his job. Every question was answered with expertise and focus on our needs. It was very educational!!

U.S.A Dear Maria Elena
I can not compliment your company enough for the excellent job you did with the tour we booked through you. Everybody was on time,polite and informative. The guides Mr. Torres, Victoria and Roberto as well as Darwin could not been more help full. Thanks to them It was not just a vacation but a learning experience. I would also like to mention that the free lunches provided were excellent. The hotels clean and comfortable with great staff.
My admiration goes to the Peruvian people, the kindness and friendliness they showed.
I have been all over this world and would count this trip as one of the most enjoyable, thanks to you.
Thank you, Sincerely Hedwig Black
U.S.A Dear Maria Elena
Maria Elena – I want you to know how much appreciate the trip you planned for us – We had the most wonderful people greeting us, Rolando, and our guides were the very BEST – Virgil and Esmeralda were thoughtful, knowledgeable, and made everything about the time spent with them so worthwhile. We came away loving PERU and the experience of visiting MACHU PICCHU.
The hotel accommodations in the Amazon and in Cusco and at the Inkaterra Peublo were so comfortable and the staff so gracious – especially at the hotel is Cusco – I would give them a 5 star rating.
I was not impressed with the hotel in LIMA – I do not know if you got to see the hotel but if anyone says they want a pool for the last day of their stay – the pool there does not qualify – there is no place to sit outdoors, nor is it big enough to swim in – and in the morning they could not organize serving a continental breakfast - The room itself was comfortable and we liked the location and the staff was helpful, but it was not what we had expected.
I am mentioning this only because I want everybody who uses your service to come away knowing that you did a perfect job. Thanks for your efforts – we would recommend your service to anyone who wants to visit PERU. Daryl Westbrook
