Think Peru Guestbook
"Can't thank you enough for the wonderful trip to Peru. Great organisation and itinerary. The hotels ,meals,group size and local guides were just right. And of course Santiago and Johnny were so kind, knowledgeable and helpful throughout. Peru has so much - history, wildlife,scenery,culture,food. We saw so much. We both enjoyed the Inca stuff but for me the highlight was Lake Titicaca."
Mary and Gerry George, Ultimate Peru Trip November 2013
"A big thank you for the most wonderful holiday. Everything went smoothly with us always being met by lovely people who couldn’t be more helpful and genuinely pleased to see us. We counted up that we had 11 flights which could well have been a recipe for disaster but everything was made as easy as possible. The Galapagos element of the holiday was fab and we were so pleased you recommended the Safari camp and the Cormorant was great and by far better than some of the other boats we saw. Then when we thought things could not get better we had the second phase of the holiday. The Peru part was also organised extremely well with no hitches and again lovely guides and fab hotel choices. Everything went so smoothly and all parts – Lima, Araquippa, Colca Canyon, Lake Titikaka, Train trip to Cuzco, Sacred Valley and wow, Machu Picchu were great. So thank you so much Rachel and we would certainly recommend your services for Galapagos and Peru travel."
Angela and Keith Bailey, Cormorant, Peru, May 2013
"A big Thank You for such a wonderful holiday. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything! The 5 days on the 'Cormorant' could not have been better, the service was 200% and we were lucky to have such a good mix of travelling companions on board. Peru was just amazing, with Macchupichu as the final highlight of the whole tour. Everything on the tour went like clockwork, all the guides and drivers were excellent, looking after our every need - even before we know what they were! The pace of the tour was just right, up very early some mornings but having a late start here and there enabling us to draw breath. We would be very happy to recommend this holiday and of course your services to other. Once again we were so very happy with the holiday and it will go down as one of the best we have had."
Barbara Merriman and Claire Inglin, Cormorant and Peru, May 2013
"Thank you for a really fabulous holiday. It all went perfectly. Santiago took charge of everything in Ecuador and things went like clockwork and we couldn’t have had a better guide than Carlos in Galapagos. Tip Top III and her crew really looked after us in the Galapagos. The wildlife that we saw was way beyond our expectations, you really can get close up and personal. After the wildlife in Galapagos, we were ready for some culture and our extension in Peru was excellent. What better place to rest than Colca Lodge lazing in the natural hot pools just feet above the babbling river with Llamas and birds to watch as well. The night we spent on Suasi Island also stands out as a real gem as we were the only guests that night – we had our own private island! Rachel promised that guides would meet us at every step across Peru and that promise was fulfilled everywhere. All our guides were very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. Americo and Edgar (guide and driver) became more like friend in and around Cusco and went out of their way to show us as much as possible and made helpful suggestions about things to do and where to eat on our free days, well beyond their call of duty. Now we are back home we are reliving the experience through our 4,000 photographs and wondering how we can possibly follow that!"
Ian and Janet Paterson, Ecuador, Rainforest, Galapagos, Peru, November 2012
"Words cannot really describe what an amazing time we had. Everything ran like clockwork. As you said, everything would be taken care of and indeed, it was. Every aspect was awe-inspiring, whether it was Peru, the Galapagos or the Rainforest. Every day brought something new. The guides, drivers/Samba crew, local people, places, views, wildlife (both on land, in the air and in the sea), accommodation and cuisine were all brilliant. We feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to see and experience all that we have. So, thank you so much for your advice and guidance and for your perseverance in formulating the itinerary and making it happen. I cannot thank you and the various teams enough. Your inside knowledge of Ecuador/Peru through personal experience clearly stands you in good stead for trip advice and formulating itineraries and I am so glad that I found you. I felt that you were on my wavelength from the word go."
Yvonne Wilson, Peru, Galapagos & Amazon October 2012
"A big big thank you to you and your teams. All our guides were fantastic, knowledgable and enthusiastic. The Andes were breathtaking. Thank you once again - it was a trip of a lifetime - although we will definately go back!!"
Wareham Family, Peru, Galapagos & Amazon, July-August 2012
"In a word-fantastic! I think we saw every creature that the Galapagos has to offer (except whales and the waved albatross)! The itinerary was excellent. The Peruvian portion of the trip went equally smoothly. We were met in Lima at the airport and again in Cuzco where we were very pampered and attended to. We had a dedicated driver, van and guide for the entire stay, all excellent. Cusco is not a wealthy city but it seems like a place where family is important and felt comfortable to wander around in. We loved the Sacred Valley. It's gorgeous and the history is fantastic. I admit not knowing much about anything but Machu Picchu going in-our guide Fredy filled in the missing pieces. Not only does he have a degree in tourism, he was formerly a professor in the subject, until he tired of being in the classroom and returned to guiding. He was recognized, and obviously respected, by other guides wherever we went. And the destinations were fantastic. A once in a lifetime trip that we will always remember! Thank you for making it all happen. We couldn't be any happier."
Linda and Jeffrey Stockman and Family, Galapagos and Peru, June 2012
"The holiday of a lifetime. The time in the Galapagos was absolutely amazing - everything was right - the boat was spacious and the crew v helpful. The food was good and there was certainly plenty and also plenty of variety. Peru was also wonderful. The organisation was brilliant - To sum up - what a wonderful holiday - we will certainly be recommending you to family and friends and may even come back at a later date to do the other half of the Galapagos. Thank you both very much."
Jane and David Moll, Ecuador & Galapagos and Peru, April 2012
"Thank you both for organising a superb holiday which I don't think will ever be bettered in terms of scenery and spectacular wild life."
