An amazing trip. Far exceeded our expectations. Everything was so well organised and when there were small hitches they were dealt with speedily and efficiently . Our guide Alina was amazing, so relaxed but super efficient in a totally non threatening way. She held together a disparate group of people in a manner that I'm sure made everyone feel safe , valued, respected. She was also great fun. An exceptional young woman. The only small let down was the 2 nd hostel in Bolivia which I felt fell well under standards experienced on the rest of the tour. No real washing facilities other than when camping isn't really acceptable in this day and age. But a very minor point. Otherwise FANTASTIC..”
Was very impressed with the organization of this trip. Darwing was great and knowledgable. The Inca trail was amazing. Our 2 guides - Ronald Ccana Sotalero and Guillermo Sana Cusi went above and beyond to make this a once in a lifetime excursion. They were excellent on the trail. The equipment, food - just everything - exceeded my expectations. If it wasn't for the guides encouragement and help I don't think my friend would have made it. Can not say enough about them and the Peruvian Sacred tour group.”
Our tour leader, Manny Salorio, was with us every step of the way. He was compassionate, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic in going above and beyond his duties as a leader. He always shared his expertise and accompanied us on his suggested places for dinners, shopping and other activists. He made the trip very successful.
The trip was excillerating and full of adventure. We experienced things that we didn't know were possible. ”
