My wife and I took a last-minute trip to Peru. We had less than a week to organize the trip. They were able to organize a private tour for five days in Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu with transfers and private guides – all with less than 6 days before the start of the trip. Everything worked like clockwork. Communication was extremely good, we were met by representatives at every step of the way. They helped make our vacation very memorable. I cannot recommend them enough.
This was a very well set up and very well executed tour of Cusco, The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Booking was easy and questions were answered promptly. Everything was taken care of for us from the planning of excursions (city tour, rafting, climbing and ziplining, Machu Picchu) to transportation to lodging to the tour guides once on site. We were met at the airport and transported to our hotel and given a briefing of what to expect the next few days to include restaurant recommendations that were spot on. Our contact in Cusco was always available to answer questions and to help us out when we needed; he assisted in making this a memorable experience. Overall we felt well taken care of and supported on our journey. Should I return to any areas that Peru Vacation Tours covers, I would absolutely book with them again.
Highly recommend Peru Vacation Tours. The pricing was very reasonable for what we did in 10 days. Kelly was wonderful at arranging our custom tour package. We contacted her and made our arrangements less than 2 months prior to our vacation and had to make multiple changes and adjustments (because of our own circumstances) but, she handled it all very patiently, attentively and thoroughly. She met all of our needs. We were slightly intimidated, going to Peru for the first time, but they had all of our transportation completely arranged and beautiful, clean hotels for us to stay in. Once we arrived, Yeny was also available for answering any questions and concerns we had. She was very friendly and knowledgable and helped acquaint us with things. We really enjoyed ourselves and are grateful for their assistance in planning the perfect trip for us.
Great Peru trip. Kelly with Peru Vacation Tours was very responsive and accommodating. She lined up many choices for us to make, outlined a very successful itinerary. Would recommend for your trip.
Everything was taken care of very well from the start to the end of the process and Peru Vacation Tours were very accommodating to making any changes! Worry free vacation planning and booking at a great price.
Peru Vacation Tours were very knowledgeable on the area we wanted to visit, which helped us save a lot of time and money. We were a bit concerned traveling to South America, but they helped us make everything stress free and very enjoyable. Thank you to the whole team.
Peru Vacation Tour, We all just reached home safe and wanted to send you a quick Thank You note for all your help in making our trip memorable 🙏🏼 We are so glad that we could make this trip and Peru and nature is just amazing and overwhelming at the same time. Thank you for making it all possible with varying demands from a large group. All the guides were very knowledgeable, especially Liz and Julia from Arequipa were very knowledgeable and nice.
The tour was very well organised and everyone was very helpful and friendly. The transportation was prompt and efficient. The Amazon section of the tour was my favourite part as it was very unique and unlike anything I’d ever seen. The food and accommodation there was excellent, would definitely reccomend.
Very happy with the service and the organization of our trip to Peru. Good selection of hotels. Would recommend
We loved our vacation trip package to Peru, by peruvacationtours.com. The lunch experience at ‘ Tunupa Restaurant’ was just out of the world. All the guides and the tours were well arranged with good , polite & punctual drivers. The experience at ‘Inkaterra Hacienda Conception’ was mind blowing! The guided tours by our expert ‘Mirko’ was extremely valuable, informative and precious. Mirko was a top professional! With a weather related flight delay of 7 hours landing at Lima’s Inkari Luxury Hotel which caused unwanted confusion at the Hotel’s check-in , on the arrival. Apart from that confusion every single moment of our stay at Peru was smooth and full of wonderful memories. Thank you Peruvacationtours.com for all the help and guidance! Much Appreciated!!
The arrangements made by Peru Vacation Tours were excellent. The transport by Taxi to hotels were prompt and efficient. The travel by bus from Cusco to Puno was a bit long but the tour guide was excellent. I suffer from altitude sickness so parts of the tour were challenging for I had to slow down and take frequent rest stops. The tour guide in Machu Pichu was excellent for he allowed for many stops where he explained the various aspects of the sites and allowed for recovery from altitude sickness. The hotels selected were very good. The visit to Unos -floating island in lake Titikaka was unique and very interesting. Also it was appreciated that all fees and lunch arrangements were included in the tour price which was appreciated
Luke was great and responsive. His operations team on the ground always kept us up to speed. There were a few small hiccups out of their control but they were able to help find a resolution that made the experience a fantastic trip. Would recommend. The slight issue were some of their drivers spoke very little English but we were able to still communicate with the little Spanish we knew and the little English some of them knew. These guys are the real deal – so go with them.
Great team, that is aware of everything happening on your vacation. Great organization, and very kind personnel. Everything went smoothly, we don’t find any problems. And Perú is a great country for vacations, they got amazing ruins, great beaches (try Mancora), and a fantastic nightlife on Lima city (you must go to Barranco and Miraflores).
My wife and I just got back from a trip to Peru organized by Peru Vacation Tours. I cannot say enough good things about this outfit. We had contacted them on a recommendation from some friends of ours who had used them on their hiking trip to Machu Picchu. Right from the beginning, Kelly Garcia was very good in communicating with us and setting up an itinerary. Two weeks before our trip, we got a complete itinerary including the hotel reservations, the boarding passes for our flights from Lima to Cusco and all the information for the daily activities. We were met at Cusco airport and taken to the hotel and our contact kept in touch with us at all times and was available on the phone for any questions. The tours that they had organized were excellent with great guides and very prompt. They were so good that their contact was able to switch our lunch reservations in Machu Picchu on the day that we were supposed to go to the citadel for a second trip. We called off that one and he changed it to another place in Aguas Calientes within half an hour! We were quite prepared to get lunch on our own, but he would have none of it! They arranged all the transportation including picking us up and dropping us off at Lima airport (we stayed an additional day in Lima on our own). Our contact in Cusco even contacted his friends in Lima to arrange a day tour of the city for us the day that we were there in Lima. Hands down, one of the best organized trips that we have had. Very highly recommended.
Our group of 11 people thoroughly enjoyed our experience in Peru and Bolivia thanks to the help of Peru Vacation Tours. I was very impressed by Kelly who helped to make our itinerary to exactly how we wanted. The 4 star hotel choices were great and the tour guides were very knowledgeable and courteous. The only issue we had was a change with one of the local flights, but this happens and Peru Vacation Tours we on hand to help us with this. Thank you Kelly and team. We will be going to the Galapagos Islands with you guys next year hopefully.
This trip was planned within two weeks of our arrival in Peru. We made a change in our itinerary during the trip to see soccer match. This was handled affordably and smoothly. Luke, his staff and all His contacts did a phenomenal job of making an unforgettable trip for myself and my son. I highly recommend Peru vacation tours. – Jim from Nebraska (USA)
PeruVacationTours.com provided me with a safe easy way to see Peru. I very much enjoyed my trip and they had me taken care of every step of the way. I felt the trip was well worth the price. Luke was patient and very helpful in my reservation process. If your interested in carefree travel in Peru, I recommend them in every way.
Our vacation with Peru vacation tours, was amazing our group of ten had a wonderful time. from the arrival to the airport in Lima. to our way back in cusco. the whole team was professional and knowledgeable in all areas. thank you guys. very specials thank’s to Luke.
The tour was very well organised and everyone was very helpful and friendly. The transportation was prompt and efficient. The Amazon section of the tour was my favourite part as it was very unique and unlike anything I’d ever seen. The food and accommodation there was excellent, would definitely reccomend.
Very happy with the service and the organization of our trip to Peru. Good selection of hotels. Would recommend
Peru Vacation Tours planned our 10 day vacation package to Peru. Our itinerary was planned so well and followed perfectly. There are so many adjectives to describe our experience with the top five being unbelievable, adventurous, fantastic, lifetime experience for my children, and breathe taking. There are so, so many favorite parts of the vacation which includes the amazon jungle in Puerto Maldonado as the top and following are Machu Picchu, Cuzco, eating alpaca, Inca terraces, all the Inca ruins and learning the history etc…I highly recommend Peru Vacation Tours to everyone. I give them 6 stars!
Our experience with using Peru Vacation Tours (PVT) was outstanding. From start, we did not really know all the things we wanted to see, but had some ideas. PVT gave several suggestions, always with good descriptions and suggestions. Also including price and finding suggestions that met our budget conditions. Also a lot of useful tips for the trip were included. From we first set foot in Lima til we left the last day, the trip was both breathtaking and hazzelfree! Drivers / guides met us at all necessary points, helped us with any questions we had – they were available when needed, and gave us space when we wanted to enjoy the time alone. Regarding the guides, as a person that loves traveling, the guides we had during this adventure were all outstanding, so personal really letting us come closer to Peruvians and understanding their culture, believes and day-to-day life. We had a weather hick-ups and one mountain we were going to trek got closed, but the guides PVT used went all the way to help us find an awesome alternative. Also, all bus travels were with a very comfortable bus liner, and when we wanted to change a ticket due to weather changes in Nazca, the PVT guides again really went all out to help us fix this with the bus company and fix transport to the bus (which we would never have managed alone). The whole experience has made me very positive to having a travel agency tailor make my vacation, and I will for sure use this again for my next trip when in a continent / country I don’t know. I really give my warmest tips to Peru Vacation tours for maximizing our adventure in Peru!
Although there are several competitively priced online travel companies to choose from for South America, we chose Peru Vacation Tours because of Luke Winstanley, whom we found to be extremely good at troubleshooting if anything goes awry. In our case, we were fortunate to recover a lost back pack at the airport which happens often with connecting flights. PVT persisted with the airline to have the bag delivered to our hotel. We also had a very reliable driver named Walter, who made sure we made our connections and also gave us a nice introduction to Lima. Overall, Luke put together an amazing 12 day package with excellent guides & drivers for Lima, the Amazon, Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Pichu, Puno & Floating Islands as we had requested. All of our guides were extremely knowledgeable and spoke both Spanish & English. We also asked him to arrange a birthday celebration for my 16 yr old son at our lodge in the Amazon and was amazed at the friendliness, kindness and hospitality of the staff at The Planet Lodge. Then, dinner reservations later that day in Cusco at Peruvian Kitchen, in which the staff sang HB in Spanish and the food and drinks were masterfully presented and very delicious! Our hotels were very clean and centrally located.
From booking and organizing the trip, to communication in the country, we always felt like the communication was beyond excellent (which is comforting when our Spanish was not the best). The trips were excellent- we were picked up at our hotel in the mornings and taken care of throughout the day with knowledgeable guides and fun, interesting experiences. Such an amazing trip that was made possible by Peru Vacation Tours! Thank you so much!!
Thank you Luke. Vacation was great! Everybody were happy. On a scale from 1 to 10 total score is 9.25 – very good. Some minor issues like taxi in Lima, but that’s okay. Everything was perfectly organized. A couple of suggestions – try to find tour guides with better English. The one we had in Machu Picchu and Titicaca Lake were very good, gave us so much interesting information. Tour guide in the bus from Cusco to Puno …. couldn’t understand him at all. I understand it’s not your service, but… Hotels very good, food good too. Small confusion took place when we took train to Machu Picchu … very busy area and would be nice to have instructions what to do and what to expect upfront. Anyway, we all had very good time and will definitely recommend your company to our friends. Ilya
From the very beginning I would like to say that I highly recommend Peru Vacations Tours as your agent for a vacation in Peru. I found them over the internet and the whole experience was great. I would like to emphasize the availability and customer orientation of Luke. From the very beginning he did his best to accommodate our needs and expectations. In addition during the entire two weeks trip that involved changing multiple hotels, transfers, flights, boats, tours, etc Luke was all the time available to help and solve any issue that arose along the way. In other words he gave us peace of mind that no matter what there is someone there to help when needed. I am very glad I chose them and we (a family of three) had an unforgettable experience. Thank you PVT, thank you Luke.
In the first two weeks of October 2017 I had my vacation and decided to travel to Peru, since it had been on my *MUST VISIT* list for quite some time. I requested tours information from several operators in Peru and chose “Peru Vacation Tours” because they had a big variety of tours – from couple days up to a month, groups and individually customized, and there was a Grand Andean Tour that included most of the places I wanted to visit in Peru. Besides that, they replied to my requests promptly, and sales manager was very attentive and helpful. The whole organization of the tour was perfect: I did not have to worry about anything but enjoy my time and fantastic places. I was met, guided, escorted everywhere; all booking was made for me. I never felt lost or ignored. I would highly recommend “Peru Vacation Tours” if you plan your vacation in Peru and don’t want some organizational details spoil your experience. Elena
I want to write and tell you what a FANTASTIC trip we had on many levels. Of course the sites we saw were amazing, the weather was perfect (still haven’t figured out how you arranged that one!), and the food great. It was wonderful working with you, you were always helpful, patient, and professional. There were sooooo many different parts to the trip, but they all worked perfectly and the trip was perfectly organized. The guides, leaders, coordinators, etc were wonderful, we loved the hotels you selected, as well as the locations and their services. The people to meet us at the various points were always there, the train and bus rides were well coordinated, as were the plane rides. With so many parts to the trip is amazing that it all ran so smoothly…due I am sure to your careful attention to details. I have attached a photo of our happy group. I look forward to planning another trip with you. Happy I was able to meet you in person and have a drink at the hotel. Best of luck to you always.
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!
We have returned home from our wonderful 3 week South America trip and I have to say, your Peru tour was the best! Your tour guides were great, beginning with Keylee who oversaw our itinerary and made sure everything worked out, even checking in for our return flight. Rony, the tour guide who took us from Cusco to Ollantaytambo was phenomenal, what a wealth of information, how he managed to keep track of everyone in Ollantaytambo was beyond me! He went out of his way for us many times, which we so appreciated. Victor Hugo was an amazing guide, so full of energy and customizing our Machu Picchu tour to one of our members who couldn’t do any climbing, he was outstanding. You have amazing tour guides. The only problem that arose was when we were in Cusco the first day and were supposed to get a private tour, the tour guide never showed up and Keylee was able to get us in with another tour, with William , who was also wonderful. The transfers and hotel were also great. We had a wonderful time, just wish that we had seen more of Cusco. It was a pleasure dealing with you and kudos to your fantastic staff!!! I will be sure to recommend your company highly. Sincerely, Peggy Petersen, Travel Trends, Hauppauge, NY PS, the restaurant that Rony took us to in the Sacred valley was excellent!
I would recommend Peru Vacation Tours to anyone. I flew to Lima and wanted to travel to Cusco and visit all the sites there. Not speaking Spanish I was concerned, however I contacted the firm and they set everything up for me. Flights, hotels, coaches and passes to various locations. Upon arriving at Cusco I was met by a friendly representative and he took me to my hotel and arranged everything whilst I was there. Would definitely advise anyone to use this firm and are very reasonably priced as well.
Thank you so much for that incredible vacation experience that you gave me! Great organization, very friendly and so professional. I hope travelling soon with you to discover more of that impressive country. See you soon!
Absolutely delighted with the service we received from Peru Vacation Tours and in particular, the personal touch and attention to detail of Luke Winstanley. Everything was thoroughly well organised and the trip went flawlessly, even when we wondered at times whether things would work, we need not have concerned ourselves, we were not let down at any point. We can unreservedly recommend this company to anyone contemplating a vacation in Peru. We had nothing to do but arrive in Lima. Thanks so much!
We had a lovely vacation in Peru. Hotels and guides were excellent. We had flight problems and had to change our itinerary, which was done very efficiently and we didn’t miss anything from our originally itinerary. Thank you
We visited Peru in May. We were a big group from USA with complex variations in our itineraries. Luke from Peru Vacations was very attentive to our needs. We had great experience from the ground staff who coordinated our tour smoothly. Easy and prompt to communicate and prices are competitive. I highly recommend Peru Vacation Tours.
I booked a Machu Pichu and Cuzco tour with Luke through pvtnew.test and it was an amazing, effortless experience. Luke handled everything for us from arranging flights from Lima, tours for Cuzco, Machu Picchu, and various other sites throughout Cuzco. I generally do try to book and organize trips on my own, and actually researched the Machu Picchu process myself extensively, and came to the conclusion that working with Luke was not only far more convenient, but it would actually be cheaper, easier, and resulted in a far better experience working with Luke instead! There are several things that particularly impressed me working with Luke: The tour guide for Machu Picchu was especially amazing, and he knew so many details about Machu Picchu. He knew the best spots for photographs, all of the history. I especially appreciated his photo albums of the past of Machu Picchu – added an extra dimension to our appreciation of Macchu Picchu that would not be possible without him! Working with Luke and his local partners added a dimension and convenience to the Machu Picchu leg that I would never have been able to achieve by planning on my own. Luke was also exceptionally responsive and customer-friendly, something I think is especially essential when working with a tour operator and travelling to a foreign country. Being able to develop trust with someone you’re working with a continent away is especially important to me, and Luke was perfect for that. I am a demanding customer, sending numerous emails, phone calls, both before and during the trip, and Luke always responded promptly and professionally. Even during the trip, if I had any questions, Luke was just an email or phonecall away, making the experience completely stress free. I really enjoyed the trip, and am glad I picked Luke and his agency. I have been, and will continue, suggesting your agency and the trip we took to all of my friends who are planning to go to Machu Picchu in the future as someone who can make the trip effortless, add value, and truly special.
I can’t tell you how happy I am with my travel experience to Peru with Peru Vacation Tours. As a solo traveler it can be tough and sometimes I can feel vulnerable or susceptible – but with Peru Vacation Tours I always felt safe, confident and in control. Communication was thorough, clear and concise. I always knew in advance what my next step was. It was terrific working with Luke Winstanley – he was knowledgeable, helpful, patient and professional. There were many components and logistics to piece together for this trip – but somehow, someway everything came together and worked out perfectly. I can’t overemphasize the successful timing of the ground transportation from airports, train stations and bus stations. The tour guides, drivers and various ground transportation representatives were terrific. They were reliable and always there to meet me with a comforting sign with my name on it. The train, planes and bus rides were well organized and coordinated. I especially appreciated and loved the hotels you arranged for my lodging as well as the locations and their services. I can’t thank you enough for your attention to detail. I look forward to planning another trip next year with you. My next trip will be with my daughter to hike the Inca Trail and experience several Cusco tours. Thank you so much Luke and Peru Vacation Tours for your wonderful service. Best wishes to you. Derek Miller
I had an excellent solo trip organized by Peru Vacation Tours in Sept. Booked the entire itinerary with Luke W. from US. He provided me sample tours with my budget and interest in mind, and we confirmed everything via email or phone call. I even had to do last minute date changes due to hurricanes and flight cancellations, Luke waived the change fees for me which was very appreciated. During the tour all pickups and dropoffs were very smooth. Everything was explained to me before and during the trip. Luke even dropped by at my hotel in Lima to answer any questions. It was a pleasure working with Peru Vacation Tours. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
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.
Highly recommend Peru Vacation Tours. I travelled to Peru alone and I don’t speak Spanish. Reliability and safety was important to me. The company delivered on both with efficient service, highly responsive communication in English. Everyday was activity packed customized per my preferences. Given that Peru Vacation Tours is a smaller company, they are more price competitive than some of the other companies I Googled and they deliver the same type of reliability and safety service. Don’t hesitate to book with this one.
I strongly recommend Peru vacation Tours agency to book your next vacation. All their services are excellent and they are very helpful. Also, they work based on your budget and they send you different options for you to pick your hotels, transportation and any other accommodation that you might need in advance. I am very satisfied with their service and I’m glad I chose them as my vacation planners, I had an amazing time
We loved our vacation in Peru! Thank you for everything that you arranged and coordinated for our trip. All of our arrangements and connections were smooth. We never had to wait for anyone or wonder if we would be met or picked up as we had messages each night with the details for the following day. Our days were full! The food is fabulous and we definitely indulged during our time in Lima and were very adventurous trying new foods and old favorites. We truly enjoyed our trip and we would recommend Peru Vacation Tours to anyone looking to travel to Peru. In fact, I have a niece that is interested in visiting PERU and I will have her contact you! We would definitely recommend PERU Vacation Tours to friends and family! If we visit Peru again, we would probably change and tweek a couple of things, but that is only after visiting once and knowing what we would like to see more of. The arrangements you made for this trip were wonderful and just what we had anticipated. I would recommend the 4 star option. Thank you The Magley Family
A great vacation with nice accommodations, good food, and wonderful guides. An absolutely great schedule of places to see & do with people meeting us at every location in a timely manner. It was exactly what we were told it would be with no disappointments. Peru is an amazing place to visit, especially when you are assisted with luggage, suggestions on tipping, places to eat & stay. We all had a wonderful time and have many great memories.
My wife and I enjoy very much during the 11 days of our Peruvian tour. We were very very impressed and satisfied of such great services extended by your Team. We have no hesitation to recommend any of our friends to approach you for their visit to Peru. Once again, we thank you very much for making our tour very comfortable. God bless you all ! Stephen
We loved our vacation. I want to thank you so much for making everything happen for us beyond to what we expected. The hotels were amazing, the service was amazing. Enjoyed every single second we spend in Lima, Cuzco and Machu Pichu. The Hotel in Lima was so convenient, close to shopping and close to the beach, the Lima city tour another experience we will never forget. Cuzco hotel Best Western was indescribable. We got a room on the 4th floor which came with an amazing view of the Catidra, Christo Blanco and with its own dinning area. The location was very convenient, right at the center plaza. Machu Pichu is an experience that we will never forget. The train ride itself was beautiful, the tour guide Victor was very entertaining and knowledgeable. We felt in love with Peru and planning to go back again within the next 2 years. Luke thank you so much for your patience with me when I was planing all this. I appreciate the fact that you didn’t mind checking things out for me for 2 months when I could not really make up my mind. I appreciate the phone calls just to follow up, giving me enough time to do my own research, not pushing me to get something that you wanted me to get. We are planning to come back and I will be in contact with you personal to schedule my next trip to Peru. Thank you again.
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. Sincerely, Charlie Miller USA, Wisconsin
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. Best regards, David
We would like to thank you for a wonderful vacation package and hospitality of your crew. Everything worked without a glitch! We had a good time in Peru. Thank you!
If you are thinking of going to Peru, there’s only one thing you really need do. Without any hesitations, just contact PERU VACATION TOURS and they’ll smooth your every step to Machu Picchu! Thank you Luke and Peru Vacations for an amazing and perfectly organised Peruvian Adventure! Nikki and Michael Gray – London
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.

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. Sincerely, Nancy Kimes
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, Genevieve Deittrick
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
Just to let you know we have returned from an unforgettable vacation! Everything your company for Lorna and I was absolutely perfect. All the pick-ups were always on time, your 3 guides Ruben, Carlos and Alberto were knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The hotels you selected were more than we could have wished for. muchas gracias!!
First I was very pleased with the trip and your services. I was met at the airport in Cusco, given a map with ideas of where to explore the first morning, this was very helpful. Your team always had my tickets ready and in order. I saw some travelers on tours who “paid” but weren’t given a ticket, so they had to re-buy tickets at the destination..This never happened to me. The guides were very good, they were informative and helpful. Also very pleased when I got off the train with hundreds of people, you had someone waiting to match me up with my guide, or to pick me up. The hotel was very nice with a beautiful courtyard and a very helpful staff. Thank you very much for your services, it was the trip of a lifetime, and you made it excellent!
Julia, 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!!!
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 didn’t 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! Nikki and Danielle
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. Thanks again! Andrew
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. Thanks again
Dear Julia, 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. Warm regards, Mayda and family
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. Best regards. Ashok
Hi Diana, 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!!! Thanks again, Martia
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
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
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. Kumar
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. Lori Thomassen / Jeff Meskey
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. Rahul and Agraja
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. Kind regards Sue
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! Love, Sara, Julia & Eric
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 Inca 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
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. Thanks again,
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.
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. Kenneth W. Carr CB&I – USA Operations
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. Thanks again.
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.
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.
Hey Paul, I just wanted to thank you for orginizing our “Sunrise in Machu Picchu” tour. This was the best trip of my life. Machu Picchu was beautiful and amazing. The tour was orginized perfect, we had no problems whatsoever. I was really impressed how smooth everything was. Great food, people, and tour guides. I already told my friends about Peru Vacation Tours how well organized it was. I have 2 friends that are planning to visit Machu Picchu in August. Take care and again many thanks!!!
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
We enjoyed the trip very much. The tour guides were friendly and very knowledgeable about the places we were taken. Our guide Yuri was great, and the hotel we stayed at was wonderful. Thanks for arranging everything. Thanks!
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 Peru Vacation Tours, 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! Thanks again!
I wanted to take this opportunity to Thank You for 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. Best regards, Dan & Karen Trailov Bob & Kathie Dies
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 definitely book with Peru Vacation Tours again. You have been wonderful to us. Thanks a million for everything! Muchos Gracias! Love, The Mortimer Family…Adam, Moana, Bryce, Jessica, Lyle, Sheila, Leisha & Tanner
My appreciation to a wonderful trip to Lima and Cuzco and to Machu Picchu. In spite of our flight cancellation, we were able to make a good tour. Machu Picchu 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 Pisco Sour. My Regards to all.
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.
Dear Rossana Further to my comments on tripadvisor.com, I would like to also say thank you directly for such a brilliant trip to Peru. Right from the first contact, you and you company were helpful and polite, not to mention excellent English speaking skills. Everything was planned perfectly and Icouldn,t fault the itinerary. Every tour guide and transfer was very knowledgeable and helpful, which made the trip run very smoothly. Thank you once again for arranging such a brilliant trip, you are highly recommended!
Very excellent service, Especially in Cusco the guide was incredible – Dixie
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.
Just to let you know that I really appreciate you handling us personally…. Peru vacation tours and staff are very professional and efficient. I am still savoring the memories of my trip. Don’t be surprised if you get calls from my family and friends because I recommended you already if and when they decide to visit Peru So long for now and more power to you and peruvacationtours. Thanks a million !
Dear Katty, We really liked our two weeks in your country and enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks to the really knowledgeable guides you provided us whith, we learned a lot about life and history in Peru. Hopefully, we can come back soon Thank you for a great experience
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.
I thought my trip to Costa Rica was fantastic, this one was even better. Our accommodations 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.
I just wanted to let you know that we 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. Thanks again!
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 snowed under with work at present. It was a great trip and we are grateful to your invaluable assistance in organising the same. With best wishes
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. Sincerely,
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! Mucho gracias!
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.
In the beginning of the month of August, 2008 my family and I went to Peru 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 regretted 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 Tours, 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, very very nice people. We have already referred all our friends to Peru Vacation Tours which will make your stay in any destination enjoyable! ***** Thank you, guys! Gracias!!!
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! Sincerely,
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.
Thank you 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 apologize 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 coming 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. Thank you 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.) Thank you again Diana for all your help.
Dear Maria Elena, I just wanted to thank you for all of your help with the trip to Peru. My father and I had a wonderful time. Everything was on time and easy and efficient, and I was very impressed with the friendliness and professionalism. I will highly recommend your services to anyone I know going to Peru in the future. Many thanks again!!
The trip you arranged for us was action packed and fantastic. Everything worked out well. I do not know how much to thank you and Peru Vacation Tours. All the guides and tour coordinators were great. The hotels booked were also great. Bravo! We plan to book again with you for visiting the Amazonas and you can use us as a reference anytime. Sorry to have worried you too much and not contacting you earlier. Happy New Year to you and everybody in your office.
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. yours sincerly
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. Regards,
Dear Leslie, We had an amazing time in Cusco, thank you! We were very happy with all the services; the hotel was really incredible! We really felt taken care during our stay and only wished we coul dhave been there longer! Thank you again and we will be sure to use your company on any future visits to beautiful Peru! Thanks again, Lily
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 Colca Canyon. 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.
Our whole trip was wonderful!! Thanks for all your effort. We certainly will recommend Peru Vacation Tours to my friends and family. With kind regards
Dear Carla My husband and I had a wonderful time and appreciate all your effort to make it an interesting and successful trip around Peru. Peru vacation tours is definitely the best tour operator in Peru. Cheers and all the best
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.
Thank you everything. we had great time and you planning was extraordinary. We enjoyed all the things and i am already planning on coming back in two years but this time to do inca trail and lake titicaca… Sincerely,
I want to thank you for the well organized trip you arranged for us. Every transfer, every tour, every hotel was wonderful!! We really appreciate your help. Take care
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. Thanks again and kind regards
Dear Friends, Thanks so much for organizing my trip. If you would like to use us as a reference then we would be happy to give a positive reply. We had such a fantastic time – thank you again.
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
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!

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
Dear Martin Thank you so much for a lovely time in Peru. The hotels were good and the food was excellent. We really enjoyed the adventure! We are very glad to recommend Peru Vacation Tours as the best tour operator in Peru.
Dear Peru Vacation Tours 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!! We will not have any doubt to recommend Peru Vacation Tours to anyone that is planning a trip to Peru.
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.
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
