Trip review
Peru

loved their trip to Peru

We loved this trip to Peru and would recommend it over and over again to our friends! Jannik did such a wonderful job listening to our needs and wants for the trip. He carefully planned everything, and the whole trip and all activities planned flowed seamlessly. We only 6 days to explore Peru and everything that was suggested was a great activity and really made us feel like we saw the most amount of items in the shortest amount of time. We stayed in Cusco a few days and then stayed in Ollantaymbo for a night, before hiking the last 1-2 hours of Machu Piccu. If you are physically capable and like to hike, I definitely recommend hiking up! We went back to ****** for the night and spent our final day in Lima. We did all the cities tours for each place and would definitely recommend everyone do these. It helps narrow down important places to see and actually understand what you are looking at! All of our tour guides spoke great English and were very knowledgeable of all the places we saw. Overall, everyone was extremely kind to us and the overall culture was so interesting and fun to learn. If you are debating this trip, just do it- you won't regret it!!!

Best parts:
I loved the culture, hotels we stayed at, and places we were encouraged to see. The tour guides were all very informative and made the tours very enjoyable. The schedule was right on and we were never late or rushed to get anywhere. So well organized, we had a great time!
Worst parts:
I really do not have any complaints about our trip, just two suggestions: 1) The itinerary is not clear about packing an overnight bag to Machu Piccu. In the future, I would change the verbiage to state: Your luggage must stay in the hotel at ******and will not come with you to Machu Piccu. Pack an overnight bag with necessities only as this will be the bag you carry around with you all day, including your hike. We got lucky and were told last minute that the bag would have to be carried all day, but some people didn't know that and were frustrated. 2) Tell the tour guide the first day to suggest buying altitude pills. I got really sick one morning and all the pharmacies were closed. I didn't know an altitude pill even existed until hours later. Just a tip to help travelers be prepared!

I am ...Hi Kristina and Elijah! Thank you so much for your great feedback and suggestions you made about Machu Picchu and altitude sicknes pills. I see you had perfect weather and pictures look amazing! I am glad to hear you liked hiking up to Machu Picchu, it is definately a nice and different activity than taking the bus even though it is not an easy hike. It is great you made it!;) We will improve our description and also let our staff know to inform our guests about pills and possibilities you have to get rid off altitude sickness. Thanks again and once you have time to come back some day to see more of Peru, we will be happy to assist you!:) Best wishes, JannikSee more
