Dear Amazing Peru,
We wanted to thank you for a great & well timed trip. We loved the private guides we had in Cusco, Machu Picchu, & in Lima. They were excellent & really enhanced the experience. When we had group excursion, the tour guides made sure that we understood what was going to happen & where our transportation was going to be. We were always picked up when we were told we would be & on time. I was so happy to to hear from Kathleen. It was very reassuring that we had an exclusive Customer Support Service in Peru if there were problems. We didn't have have problems.
We liked all the hotels & a few were extra special. Sumaq in Machu Picchu was probably the all round favorite because of the food & service went above & beyond expectations. Dinner was outstanding.
Thunderbird in Lima - had the best bed & breakfast
Picoaga in Cusco - had a beautiful building & great location
Jose Antonio in Puno - was very accommodating when we needed a late check out & great view
Casa Andina in Arequipa - beautiful room, building, great location
Refugio in Cola Canyon - location was stunning & great staff
All the hotel staffs were very helpful. We always felt comfortable & made welcome.
We would definitely recommend this tour & your company to other people. We were very satisfied with the service & the product. Peru is a really fascinating country with lots to see. The Peruvian government really should be commended for taking control of their historic sites.
