Amazing trip!
5 - Excellent
  • Kristi Newmyer
“Amazing trip! Have not done much traveling outside the U.S., so was a bit nervous. Our travel specialist was James Mackender, and he made us feel very at easy with traveling abroad in Peru. Everything was perfectly planned--flights, pick-ups and drop-offs. Our guide for the Treehouse Lodge/Iquitos was Guido. Very knowledgeable, spoke excellent english, friendly, very personable. The Treehouse Lodge was beautiful, and the day and night excursions were once in a lifetime. Our next part of our Journey in Peru was seamless--the guide from the Treehouse took us directly to the river boat. The 7 man crew on the Spondias was amazing. They were so attentive, knowledgable about the amazon and Peru. My favorite part of this portion of the trip was when we spent time with a local family at the river village. They invited us into their home, we shared some food, and discussed the commonalty and differences of our daily lives. Our guide on the Spondias was Charlie, and he likes birds and was very knowledgeable about the different species of birds. Our chef, Francisco, was wonderful and his creations were excellent. Our waiter/purser was Jairo, he was a friendly young man, full of knowledge and we practiced english and spanish together. The only flaw was that we missed our connecting flight in Lima to Cusco. After an hour of being sent to 5 different desks to get our flight rescheduled, one phone call to James and in 10 minutes the whole situation was remedied. It relieved so much stress to know that James was looking after us. The last stretch of our trip was to Cusco and Machu picchu, and Zac was our guide. Zac was, hands down, the best guide I have ever had. He was so knowledgeable about Peru, Cusco, Incan history, Machu Picchu. The way he introduced us to Machu Picchu was perfect, and he even took video of our initial reaction to seeing this Wonder of the World. He was so kind, so enthusiastic, I definitely would do another trip with him as our guide. This trip was just perfect. James did an amazing job listening to what we wanted to do, and making all of those wishes come true. Will definitely be using James again when we travel!!”
Southern Peru Trekking & Adventure with Unu Raymi

“I booked an 18 day trip with the local travel specialists in March 2022 and would recommend them wholeheartedly. My 18 day adventure around Southern Peru was fantastic - James and the team were incredibly professional, organised and helpful. From the start of the process, James helped me curate a flexible tailor-made tour at a very reasonable and competitive price. Before the trip, the team was in touch regularly to discuss and provide ideas for places to visit. During my visit to Peru, James was highly communicative, friendly and went to extra mile on numerous occasions and provided an exceptional service. I went on a number of hikes which were superb and very well organised. Overall, my tour was a stress-free once-in-a-lifetime experience and a perfect way to see one of the most beautiful countries. My full itinerary included: Lima, Paracas > Huacachina > Ica > Nazca > Arequipa > Puno and Lake Titicaca > Cusco > the Sacred Valley > Llactapata Inca trail > Machu Picchu > Ausangate and Rainbow Mountain trek > Cusco back to Lima.”

“I highly recommend this trip to anyone who is looking to learn more about Inca history while hiking to Machu Picchu! The whole experience is planned so well by the tour company team- from the pickup at your hotel on the first morning, to the delicious meals (my chef, Walter, was amazing and the food was better than what I typically eat on a day to day basis). On top of that, our tour guide Lucio was so knowledgable and patient with our group. The porters carried all of our belongings from site to site, and camp was always set up for us when we arrived for our hike. An experience you wont forget. Worth every penny :)”

Machu Picchu - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

A trip to Machu Picchu is a must while visiting Peru. These majestic Incan ruins nestling among the clouds on their high mountain perch is famous all around the world. ‘Rediscovered’ in 1911 by Hiram Bingham, Machu Picchu has still not given up all its secrets and archaeologists are divided over its original signification and use. This mysterious site high in the Andes leaves few visitors unmoved and can be reached via famous trekking routes in Peru like the Inca trail, Salkantay trek and Choquequirao Trek

Tour Highlights

  • Arrive at Machu Picchu on foot after hiking the four-day Inca Trail.
  • Alternatively, base yourself at Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Pueblo), arriving after a spectacular train journey through the mountains.
  • Travel up to the ruins in time to catch the sunrise at Machu Picchu.
  • Look out for highlights among the ruins themselves including the Temple of the Sun, the Room of the Three Windows, Intihuatana and the Sun Gate.
  • Climb Huayna Picchu, the peak at the northern end of the ruins, for views of Machu Picchu.

Travel Tips

  • Visitors to Machu Picchu are limited to 2,500 per day so book ahead to avoid disappointment, especially at the busiest times.
  • Only 400 people are permitted to climb Huayna Picchu per day so you will need to arrive early. This means queuing for the first bus from Aguas Calientes before 4.30am.
  • Follow the vertiginous trail down from Huayna Picchu to see the less-visited Temple of the Moon.
  • If you are unable to obtain a ticket for Huayna Picchu, climb Cerro Picchu to the south instead. You will be rewarded by great views and fewer crowds.
  • If you want to avoid the overcrowded Inca Trail, you can take on the alternative Salkantay Trek which offers views of Machu Picchu from above before arriving at Aguas Calientes for a visit of the ruins the next day.
  • Take insect repellent and be prepared for both sun and rain even in dry season.
