    After searching many tours on-line I chose the Best of Peru 6-Day Tour. I found it to be excellent in every way. I was travelling by myself and found their friendly staff were there to greet me at every stop along the way. The hotels in Cusco, Agues Clients and Puno were clean and well located. It may have been because I was travelling in the off season but I was not with the same people for the entire 6 days. Instead different people joined the tour in each of the various cities. I actually really enjoyed this as it gave me a chance to travel with people from London, Poland, Germany and USA. The tour guides were also different in each of the locations. I can't say enough about the quality of the guides - they were knowledgeable and willing to answer any question I would ask. They would offer me helpful suggestions of places to eat and other sites I may want to check out on my free time. The 6 days were generally long days with early morning starts but it is how they cover all there is to see in a short period of time. I would highly recommend using Machupicchu Latin American Journeys to get a good overview of Peru.
    I did spend 5 days in Lima following the tour to attend my nephew's wedding and stayed at Ibis Larco Miraflores hotel - this was an excellent hotel and very reasonably priced.

    Awesome vacation. Transportation and guides were prompt. Tours were very informational. Guides knew the history. Felt a little rushed during Machu Picchu tour but still great experience. All hotels were clean and in great locations for walking. Favorite was floating islands on Lake Titicaca and island of Tequile. Best trip.

    Well organized, excellent , very knowledgeable guides, small groups, focused on the best and most interesting the Cusco and Puno regions have to offer

  • 26-Mar-2019

    The trip is well organized, especially pick up at airport , hotel, bus stations. The highlight to us was visiting 4 islands at Titicaca lake instead of Machupichu. Puno, our guide at Titicaca Lake , is very knowledgeable and gave us the history and culture of each island. He explained to us the plantation along the walking path. He organized us a culture dance and we wore traditional dress and learnt the amanyani dance. The overnight bus back from puno to Cusco is very comfortable. The seat was roomy and we have a lot of leg room.

    A must do for all to see and to learn about there culture from the past to the way the Peruvian life outside of the big cities

  • 22-Oct-2018

    From start to finish, the tour operators, guides, hoteliers, drivers, and everyone in-between was helpful, courteous, and attentive. The experience was wonderful in itself, but the people around us made it all the more better. October weather was perfect (for us), as it only rained a couple of times, and at night. Well worth every penny. THANK YOU!

    The guides were very knowledgeable, could answer any question thrown their way. The days started early and sometimes were exhausting, but we learned and saw so much. We were greeted by Luis and Ramon and then had escorts Mateo and Erick later. I cannot recall the name of the lake guide, but he was wonderful too. We were very impressed with the attractions.

    This tour exceeded our expectations in every way. It was a great way to see the highlights of Peru, especially if you only have a short time and want to make the most of it. We loved the Sacred Valley, Cusco, Machupicchu, Puno, and Lake Titicaca! From our pickup at the airport in Cusco to our drop off at the airport in Juliaca, the tour was well organized and the guides and drivers were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Every day was filled with moments of beauty and magic. A special thank you to: Fredi, Gary, Ignacio, Ivan and Nestor each of you helped to make our trip to Peru perfect! I will never forget my first glimpse of Machupicchu or dancing with the people of Taquile Island - just wonderful!

    Parts of this tour was excellent , Matchu Pitchu was great . The day before there were too many ruins too see plus because of the elevation I chose not to go at a higher altitude as I had to visit Matchu Mitchu the next day . The outings should be scattered . Also Lake Titicaca and Puno was not exceptional . I would not visit this had I known what it entails before . There was also a a very elevated mountain which we were not advised before hand about climbing to the top . I would not chose this either .There are parts of this trip I would not chose .

    Enjoyed the tour immensley. We had numerous guides and some of their English was hard to understand and the English translation time was a fraction of what they shared in Spanish. Our guide at the island of the reeds bullied us into taking an additional cost boat ride. Our over night with the local family was at times uncomfortable, but an experience that we will cherish
