What people are saying about Cusco

The Jungle Trek was an absolute highlight of our Peru trip. At first we were happy to get out into nature. We were literally overwhelmed by the variety and beauty! Our guide Gustavo was super friendly and tried hard and made the tour a great experience! All the people we met during the tour (hosts at the accommodation, guides at the rafting etc.) were very open and incredibly hospitable! Every day brought new adventures and we were able to enjoy every single one! The only shortcoming of the tour was the accommodation at Machu Pucchu, a hotel that wasn't particularly well maintained. But apart from that, we would recommend the tour to everyone and would definitely do it again!

An all round excellent adventurous fun trip!! Our tour guide Saul was fab with plenty on experience and knowledge throughout the 4 days! The hotels and food for fabulous & the organisation of everything including all the activities was great. Would definitely recommend booking the tour, we are so glad we went! Worth every penny :) The hike on day 2 is pretty long with lots of up hills so that may be something you want to bear in mind. Take comfortable shoes and breathe able clothes as it gets very hot. Pack light too!!

The fantastic Tour, the hotel where the manager is very apathetic, regarding the tip, it did not seem suggested to me, if not mandatory in all the places where the visit was made, I know that all those regions live from tourism but one feels obliged and spend a lot on tips.

It is a beautiful trip where you get to know other cultures of Peru, the only bad thing is that you spend two nights sleeping on the bus (round trip) and you come home tired.

Easy check in, comfortable transportation, ON time ! Fernando was professional and friendly. Way better than the other company I used in Peru.
