Inca Trail and Amazon Adventure
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“This is an amazing trip visiting Cuzco, 5 days Inca trail including a night in a hotel in Aguas Calientes and 3 nights in Tambopata province (Amazon region) of Peru. My Son (12) and I had a fantastic adventure, thanks to all the hard work of our tour leader, porters and local guides. We were in a great company too, our lovely family group consisting of three other families. ”
Great experience!
5 - Excellent
  • Megan Opel
“I loved everything about this tour! Our guide, Edmundo, was very knowledgeable and clearly loves what he does. We got to see Rio from a different perspective. If you are an art lover, this is a must. If you aren't, there is so much history in the tour that there is something for everyone.”
Fabulous trip
5 - Excellent
  • Nila Bhaumik
“Dear Marcela, Thank you for the email. I have already reviewed your company on the general site, will add comments to the forum too. I first learned about the company from the Internet - reviews and trip advisor. I decided to travel with you because of your promptness in response, ease of working, good customer service and a good price. Seamless experience - everything was flawless and we did not have to worry. My favorite hotel is Don Los Cerros at El Chalten - very nice hotel, luxurious, superb location and views, spa - hot tub, good service. The best excursion was to Laguna De los tres - amazing trek up - difficult but exhilarating - worth the effort once we reached the top. The trip was fabulous!”
