This Peru tour operator did an excellent job planning our trip according to our interests. All of the guides were exceptional, and we learned so much more than we would have had we ventured there on our own. Every single one of our transfers were on time, and most of our hotels were very nice. Overall the trip was just about perfect. The only exceptions to the trip that were disappointing were: Aranwa Hotel in the Sacred Valley was an extremely beautiful place...however they decided not to turn the heat on even though it was cold...they did send room heaters that did little to warm the room....but the fact they gave us the run around about it not working was irritating. Hotel Novetel in Cusco gave us a not so nice room (I had to walk sideways to get out of the bed, it was so close to the wall). The only other bad moment was a waiter at the Sol y Luna telling us that two bottles of water were 8 soles then charged us 16 when we were finished. I just feel I need to mention these so perhaps they will not happen to others, but overall the good memories of this trip far outweigh these few blips. These were in no way the fault of the travel company, and I will absolutely recommend them to anyone planning a trip to Peru.
Pretty much all of it. We went there thinking that Machu Piccu would be the highlight, and as spectacular as it was, there is so much more that Peru has to offer. Colca Canyon and the condors was a sight to behold, the agricultural terraces, the salt flats, Madre de Dios and the jungle...we loved it all! And I must say, the food is some of the best we have ever eaten. I'm trying to find recipes now to try and recreate dishes that we had there.
I would not change our itinerary one bit, I would just pack some short sleeve shirts in with my long ones. It is very hot in the sun, but when you move to the shade it is very cool. Great weather, just be prepared for it! Also, if you are taking US dollars to exchange, the people in Peru do not like to accept folded bills that have a crease in them??? They say they have a hard time exchanging it if the bills aren't just about in perfect condition. FYI
