Sebastian was very knowledgable and enthusiastic, but it would have been nice to have a bit of time on our own - particularly to have a meal together on our own in the Amazon. Jose was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Cusco and the Incas. All parts of the tour were very well organised and we felt we were in safe hands and had no problems at all.”
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.”
South America is a continent of tremendous contrast when it comes to natural beauty from the vivid blue expanse of Lake Titicaca in Peru to the dazzling salt flats of Bolivia, the mighty volcanoes of Ecuador to the parched deserts of Chile, the stunning scenery of Argentina's Patagonia to the thundering cascades of Iguazu Falls in Brazil - discover this and much more with our range of tours to South America.
