Nathaly - We had a great trip. Everyone was great and all of the connections and accommodations worked out as good or better than we expected.
The guides (Ignacio, Janet, Angel, Hernando...) were great. I managed to get sick on the airline food so I missed one of the tours (Sacsayhuamán) but Jill went and had a good time. Cusco was very enjoyable. We were upgraded to a better hotel in Aguas Calientes...really great. Lima was very interesting and we walked to the mall by the ocean several times. We had great weather at Machu Picchu and everywhere else even though it was the rainy season.
Thanks for your help
Kenneth Leroy Hartke
we are back home already :(.
We had an amazing time in Peru - the country is gorgeous, its people are awesome, the food is amazing, the nature is unreal and the whole trip was the best ever! Huayna Picchu was scary, but both my wife and I were more then happy to have done it. Even the weather cooperated and we were able to see Machu Picchu on a sunny day as well as when it rained and was misty.
The food was amazing everywhere we ate. We loved Chicha in Cusco and Pescados Capitales in Lima. El Mapi hotel in Aguas Calientes was the perfect choice for us and we also liked San Augustin International in Cusco.
Both guides (Angel in Machu Picchu and Adriel in Cusco) were great!!! Very knowledgable and passionate about their work and the country. It was great to spend time with them and learn so much.
Once again, thanks for all your help.
We are looking forward to going back to your magical country!!
Ya estamos esperando en Panama la ultima conexión para llegar finalmente a Cali.
El viaje estuvo muy agradable, sorprendidos con las construcciones y tesoros Moches y el remate en Mancora con los tres días de playa nos permitió recuperar las energías para retornar al trabajo mañana. El hotel Villa Sirena resulto espectacular, tanto en su arquitectura como en su servicio.
Te damos infinitas gracias, tus sugerencias resultaron muy acertadas y el cumplimiento en todos los programas fue perfecto. Realmente tienes un servicio muy eficiente.
Te envio un abrazo
Thank you so much for such an amazing trip. It was truly a trip of a lifetime. Everything was organized beautifully and I have been raving about your services since I returned home. Thank you again for all your advice, the vacation was absolutely perfect!
Everything was great, thank you again. The hotels were wonderful especially the one in Paracas, I would definitely recommend that one to everyone. Machu Picchu pictures dont even show how beautiful it really is. Thank you again for the book and I would definitely recommend your company to anyone traveling there.
Desde aquí les doy mil gracias por todo tu apoyo que fue mucho mas allá de la perfecta coordinación del viaje. Impresionante la preparación, amor a la tierra y a su historia y la calidez de todos los guías de PERU TRAVEL NOW.

Hi Nathaly, Thank you for providing me with the opportunity to visit Peru.
Touring with Peru Travel Now was absolutely the best way to visit a new country. I was astonished when I arrived home, read my notes and saw the photographs at how much we achieved in that seemingly short space of time. I could happily stayed much longer.
If I ever have the opportunity to travel again, my first enquiry will be with you.
Thank you once again and best wishes for your future tours.
We had a great trip. We learned about the different communities, especially at Lake Titicaca. Meals also were really good! I would recommend this tour to any of my friends travelling to Peru. Thank you Peru Travel Now.
Hi Nathaly, we are back from our wonderful trip to Peru. We will have to find an excuse to go to Peru again, there is so much to see! Everything was so effortlessly for such a perfect organization.

Hi Andrea: When we decided to go to Peru for our honeymoon we never imagined getting such great service from the travel agency. Mery was always available to give us guidance and information about the different places we were visiting. She was so sweet!. All this personal attention made our experience throughout our visit to Peru very enjoyable. Leaving Lima, after a nice historical visit of the capital, we headed to Cusco. This enchanted site was just the beginning of many amazing moments. On our way to Machupicchu, we visited the wonders of the sacred valley before taking the train to the mesmerizing site. The tour of Machupicchu was absolutely interesting, specially with the help of a very professional guide who took us to the most magical places on the tour sites! This is an experience we will never forget!
Thank you once again!!
Dear Walter: After so many years, my dream has finally come true! I had an exquisite time hiking the Inca Trail with a very knowledgeable guide who was very attentive to all our needs. To be able to see Machu Picchu was an unforgettable moment for me. The tour surpassed all my expectations and made me want to learn more about this amazing Culture of the Incas. The tour of Machu Picchu was the highlight of my trip. Cusco and the Sacred Valley are a must see for any visitor. In fact, these were great places to discover yourself in all aspects. I strongly recommend taking Peru Travel Now for your trip to Machu Picchu, a beautiful, mystical destination in Peru.
Dear Walter: I would love to come back to Peru for MORE! I had the best experience with your team at Peru Travel Now. The Inka Trail tour was an exceptional experience! The splendour of the site and the feelings I had when I reached The Gate of the Sun was breathtaking! It makes you forget all the effort invested in the long hike! All throughout the trail, I could feel something magical, that made me want to go faster and higher! It is no surprise why so many Peruvians are so proud of their culture. I also know why Machu Picchu is a national monument, and is now part of the New Wonders of the World! I will never forget the fantastic moments I was able to experience because of your team! I will certainly come back to South America, and learn more about the fascinating people and their traditions.
I had an amazing experience visiting Peru. To be able to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World was unbelievable! South America is full of beautiful places and this is a trip I will always remember. Peru Travel Now was a great team, to help me in my entire trip to Peru. I started in Cusco and the sacred valley before going to see MachuPicchu. This is a magical place, and walking in the Inca trail gives you a very special feeling. My guide was very good with all his explanations and the group was very fun too, especially with meeting people from so many parts of the world. I will never forget my trip with Peru Travel Now! Thank you, Mery and Walter! You made my trip so wonderful!
Hi Rebecca: Discovering South America and the treasures of Peru only left me with precious memories! This trip surpassed all of my expectations! Not only was I amazed by the scenery, but Peru Travel Now & Staff put in a lot of effort to make my stay an unforgettable one. More than reality, this was a magical experience that I will treasure for a lifetime. Cheers! Ps. I want to give special thanks to Walter for arranging my last minute extension at the hotel in Ollantaytambo. Those three extra days were a blessing.
I called to book a trip, and your people from Peru Travel Now were friendly enough to make me feel confident about my tour choices, especially Naty. She gave me all the details about the trip, including the safety measures you manage, taking care of everything, and even how you work along with the police to provide a safe trip to every traveler. Great! Even when we took the tour to Machu Picchu through the Inca Trail, you were with me. I felt really comfortable and protected, especially after all what people said to me about the dangers of South American travel; I found out it is not true at all. Even when I was walking in Wanchaq, I enjoyed being taken care of. Next time I come to Peru, I will bring my family.
When I decided to go to Peru for a vacation, I wanted a tout that could let me see as much as possible. Among all the possibilities offered at the Peru Travel Now office, I opted to take the nine day expedition to the Sacred Valley and Cusco. I loved being able to be in contact with nature. The whole expedition was fantastic, but the tour to Machu Picchu was the highlight of my trip. My trip to Machu Picchu was very well organized, the guide was full of great knowledge and I got to know a lot of the history of an exceptional country! Because of all this, I will never forget all that I experienced in Peru!
Hi Peru Travel Now! When my friend and I wanted to visit Machu Picchu, the Inca Trail was what we wished to pursue the most! We had a wonderful time climbing the mountains with great company. We had an unforgettable experience and made many memorable acquaintances too. Our trip was a success and a real discovery! There are so many wonderful sites and views in Peru and in Cusco; it was like walking through a book, and being a part of a painting! All your team was nice and helpful, especially Mery. She helped us quite a lot along my whole trip. Thank you for those great memories!
Hi Naty: Warm greetings to all our guides and devoted team members at Peru Travel Now who accompanied us throughout our entire trip, and made this adventure a great one. We had more than enough time to soak in all the culture from the very first moment we arrived in Cusco to the time we left. The whole experience in the Sacred Valley was something out of this world! It made us realize the power and the unlimited possibilities of humans! What an amazing inspiration this culture was! The salt mine in Maras has exceptional views and is very interesting too! To see the great works of the people of the mountains, who respect what nature has provided, is a fabulous thing! We had a great free day, near the ruins of Machu Picchu, after our previous tour, allowing us to explore the secrets of the impressive structure and gave us the opportunity to climb Waynapichu, for an unreal view of the mystical city of Cusco on our own. We cannot thank Peru Travel Now enough for all the exceptional tours, allowing us to have great experiences and lots of great family time spent together!
Dear friends: From its origin on the Lake Titicaca, where the blue of the water reaches the sky, and the powerful site of the lost city can be seen, I was transported back in time! I enjoyed seeing the dedication of the Uros people to their culture. It was very impressive to see them living on floating islands surrounded by magnificent mountains. The tour of Machu Picchu was one of the strongest moments of my trip. When I reached the ruins of Machu Picchu, I felt like I was on top of the world. It was a very positive experience and a quite transforming one as well! Peru Travel Now really did their best in making me feel as a live part in a documentary. Wow!
Hello! I have always been fascinated by pre-Columbian culture and the archaeological sites of Peru. Peru Travel Now satisfied my curiosity! From northern Peru, sunny Trujillo, the busy city of Lima, the Sacred Valley and to the mysterious city of Cusco, all the ruins and sites were full of exciting surprises. It was amazing to discover the communication system of the ancient populations in constant evolution. The famous Inca trail and Machu Picchu was a great way to finish this amazing trip to Peru. I have never had a tour so complete and so satisfying. I totally fell in love with Peru and its impressive culture. Thank you Naty and Mery for helping me arrange my Peru-hopping experience. It was a hoot n’ a half!
Hi Walter! I went back home with a different vision of South America; the beauty of this continent is impressive. Three countries with famous destinations, providing great memories: The Cristo Blanco in Brazil, Iguazu Falls, The Buenos Aires tour, a tango night in Argentina and finally Peru. The city tour in Cuzco was a great introduction of the history and culture of the mysterious land Peru has to offer. The Machu Picchu tour was one of the greatest moments of this trip. To see this impressive structure, was like a dream come true an there is nothing that can compare to the majesty of it. Thank you Walter, at Peru Travel Now. I couldn’t have made the most out of this trip if it wasn’t for your wise recommendations.
We wanted to have a different family vacation, for a change. The Inca trail and Machu Picchu tour were both perfect for a challenging and interesting destination! We started in the vibrant city of Cusco, where the history of the city was fascinating and rich. We then left for the Sacred Valley, all geared up to go hiking in the mountains, to reach the magical site of Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu was breathtaking! Even the kids loved this exceptional journey! All of us were left speechless, when we reached the top. We came back with a great feeling of self accomplishment and a very rewarding and informative adventure, too. It’s obvious that everyone at Peru Travel Now love their country so much; only that kind of love can provide such a warm service and passionate attention to detail.
We heard that Peru was great and had beautiful sites to visit, and what we saw, was incredible! We wanted to see as much as possible and opted to take a tour from the Andes Mountains to the Amazon. The spectacular sceneries we saw allowed us to take home some of the best pictures and memories of all my travels! From seeing the famous condor flying over canyons, to the Machu Picchu tour, in the Sacred Valley, we just could not get enough of this spectacular country! The three of us were absolutely overwhelmed by such impressive sites! Thank you for such an unforgettable time and experience! I hope anyone who visits Peru will have an excellent opportunity like we’ve experienced with Peru Travel Now. Be sure to ask for Naty or Mery; they’re just TERRIFIC!
Well, coming from another country, and more when it is the first time traveling abroad, could be a little scary. If I made or not the right decision, made me a little skeptical. And after all this stressful time I had I decided to do something different: to visit a place that has some mysticism in it. So, I was told I should visit South America, Machu Picchu, in particular. Once I made this arrangement I was excited to visit the Sacred Valley. The Inca Trail was breathtaking. And the food: Oh my God! The best, I can not describe it. Thanks to Naty and all of you for giving me the best experience in my life. Machu Picchu is a paradise and you made me feel special; just like being at home, because now Machu Picchu feels like my home now.
I am an adventurous person and I like to experience different parts of the world, and now I decided to visit a place very far away from my country. I said to myself that I need to visit Inca culture during my lifetime. Once planning my trip, you were so nice to wait for me, and more, because my Spanish is not the best, and you helped me with all the necessary paperwork for me. I can not believe the amazing experience in Machu Picchu and Titicaca lake, you made my staying a pleasant time. Next time, I need to go with my family, but not just for two weeks,at least two months. I really need to recommend your service: the best. I want to specifically thank Walter, from the bottom of my heart. He really made my stay in Peru a once in a lifetime experience. Sincerely.
Being a single mom I live with much stress. Well, I guess it was time for me to learn more and spend with my kids a wonderful time. One of my kids told me about Peru Travel Now, and I said why not? It is hard when we do not know anything about the trip with kids because thinking if they will be ok. But Peru Travel Now made us feel comfortable and safe, starting with the pick-up at the airport. The transportation to the hotel and then to our jouney was top class. We’ve never had something like this, ever... The trip with the Inca tour made us feel just as comfortable as if at home. We enjoyed the trip so much, that once we were in Aguas Calientes and Machu Picchu, something happened I can not describe. We felt a stronger bond between each other. We will definitely come back. Thanks to the guides, the tour operator, and all the people involved in the trip: Naty and Mery. Just the best!
This is the third time I go to South America, and still all the time I go there is always something new I learn; I am a teacher and this experience teaches me more, and my students always eagerly ask me more about South America. But the difference now is the experience with you, calling me constantly if I am ok, if I need something. This made me feel like I am your family, and yes I feel now a Peruvian-Japanese. The Inca Tour is a different experience because in that comfortable trip, the guides helped me make the most of the views in Cusco. Amazing! One question: what is the name of the big bread I ate in Cusco? thatt was delicious. Next time I need to go with my students. They need to see this amazing culture first hand. Thanks a lot Peru Travel Now for making a dream come true!
I travel a lot to many parts of the world, but sometimes they make me feel just as a customer. I hate that. I am Greek living in UK, and I said I need to visit one of the greatest cultures in the world, like the Greek Culture. Nice of you to recommend me a cozy hotel that was different; it was really another dimension in comfort, and I cannot forget when you guys from Peru Travel Now showed me in Puno the Alpacas and Llamas. Those are just amazing animals. That is a treasure in itself, the fauna. And visiting the Sacred Valley with Inca Tour was so comfortable and people so nice by the way, you guys were with me from the beginning to the end. Never ever will forget you guys, Pilar and Naty, and I will recommend you, always.
Hi Peru Travel Now! There are so many things to see and people to meet! All along our journey we met with locals, who had the most beautiful smiles I have ever seen! It was very special to receive all this energy! The Inca trail was absolutely fantastic with outstanding scenery. Cusco and the Sacred Valley was the most impressive part of our trip. Not to forget about the tour at Machupicchu that was above any expectations! All the entire family is going back home with precious pictures and great adventures to share! We will recommend this trip to all of our friends!
Hi Naty! We’re back. The splendour of Peru is terrific! People are really proud of their country for so many reasons! I had a great time learning about a new culture and visiting Machupicchu, one of the World Wonders. The walk on the Inca Trail was very challenging, but the beauty of the site and the calmness of the mountains made me forget about this strenuous trek, and I had the best reward at the top! I even kept going and climbing up to the Wayna Picchu, the little mountain as they call in the native language. The view, once again, was worth the effort!! Thank you for an unforgettable trip! My entire group is very happy to know better about Peru!
My choice was obvious: the Inca trail! For as far as my teenage years, I dreamt about this adventure. It was very well worth waiting for this magical time to arrive! The memory of the mountains and its surroundings, the walk along the path of the Incas, and the discovery of this amazing culture will always stay vivid in my mind. I lived unique moments with a very well organized tour. Seeing Machu Picchu at sun rise is something I totally recommend to everyone. There are no words strong enough to describe a moment like this!
Hello Mery! Peru was the best choice to take our honeymoon to, to start our new life together! The energy we found in the Sacred Valley is difficult to explain, it was beyond excellent. All the people we met were cheerful and vibrant with life! Our stay near Machu Picchu was the best part of our trip! We were able to relax in the thermal baths, in the middle of the impressive mountains. No wonder the Incas considered themselves gods! After a relaxing time in Aguas Calientes, we got up very early the next day to visit The Lost City! The memories of Machu Picchu will remain in my mind forever! After a guided tour, we had lots of free time to explore and walk up to The Gate of the Sun. Nothing can compare to this place! We felt very close to each other and the magic of this site linked us together, even more!
We opted for the Wonders of the World tour, so we could explore some of the greatest attractions South America had to offer. Everything we saw was completely worth it! The tour began in Brazil, with the impressive Cristo, the redeemer. All the amusement kept getting more and more exciting and impressive. Before going to Buenos Aires, also known as the Paris of the South, I got to see the famous, incredible Falls of Iguazu. I never saw such a spectacular scene with so much water! I did not know what to expect next in Peru, and when I arrived to Machu Picchu, I was even more stunned! I could not believe what I saw. The massive structure reflected the power of the Inca culture and at that very moment I felt the energy still. What a great experience I had!
I had an incredible experience visiting Peru! Although all of my 2 weeks holiday was amazing, I have to say that the Machupicchu tour was my favourite! The magnificent site, the landscape and the magnitude of this place is more than reality! I heard stories about the Inca culture but now I am a witness of their nobleness! The memories I got from this adventure will be stuck in my mind for a long very long time!!! I want to thank you all, Peru Travel Now, for creating these unforgettable souvenirs! I will be back to the land of sun, I promise!!
Since my return from Peru, I can’t stop all the images spinning in my head! So many beautiful landscapes, and nice people! I never imagined that a place could have empowered me so much! The energy felt in the Sacred Valley and the city of Cusco is very incomparable. The train to Machupichu just added to the charm of my trip. The roof window allowed me to take great pictures while the train serpentined its way to destination. I want to return to this magic place always, where the beauty and the immensity encompass anyone’s dreams or imagination! There is nothing like this in the world! Thank you Walter!
Planning my trip after a stressful year could be another headache; as a business man, I cannot afford anymore stress in my life. Oh, my God! No more. So, a friend of mine gave me the wonderful idea to visit South America, and I was a little afraid because it scared me to go all the way there from Africa. When I called you Walter, you were so nice to take care of everything with affordable prices, waiting for me at the airport, taking me straight to my lodging and taking care of my tours. You handled everything so smoothly until I took my flight back to South Africa. It all was unbelievable. The tours to Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail were like in heaven... I will recommend you, most certainly. My regards to all the staff at Peru travel Now.
As you know, a honeymoon is very important for everybody and we really wanted to make this one unforgettable. So, when I made the call to visit Puno and Cusco, I was a little concerned how you could hold this situation. Mery, at Peru Travel Now, took our case, and she made a dream come true. My wife said: “If I do not enjoy the trip, I will divorce you.” Well, she was delighted with the trip at the end. The tour to Machu Picchu was something I cannot describe, and to be honest we wanted to get a room in Machu Picchu. We just did not want to leave! My wife said: ”I will marry you again so you can take me back there for another honeymoon.” Thanks Peru Travel Now for moments like these!
Hello friends! We are really happy to express our feelings to that beautiful country called “Peru.” We are from Germany, and planning our vacation trip. We remembered about Maria Reiche, the German lady who studied the Nazca lines. We said: “we need to see Peru.” You should see my kids and I think you remembered who called: it was my daughter, an enthusiastic girl. I really did not expect you, Jeffrey, to wait for us and call constantly if we are ok with everything. That was so sweet. With the Machu Picchu tour, you showed us all the wonderful things Cusco had to offer. People over there were so kind with us. Another thing was once in Machu Picchu, my kids felt something; like peace they said. Well I guess now we know why Maria Reiche stayed in Peru to live. Thanks Peru Travel Now.
This is my second time in South America, so I decided to visit Chile, Argentina and I said which other place? Yes, of course. Machu Picchu. My brother in law, who is Peruvian, knew about you guys, so I said I will call and plan my journey. It was easy with you guys because you have people who speak different languages, so I could get all the information I needed. What I loved being at Cusco was that the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was comfortable. Surprisingly. I could see most of the region and when I got there, I just did not want to leave. I think Peruvian people should be proud of that. And thanks Pablo and Sylvia for the dancing classes over there. I enjoyed them a lot, so now I have something in my life to talk about.
All the time people ask me, since my heritage is Peruvian, many questions about Machu Picchu. And well, I knew some things, but shame on me, there were many things I did not know. Worse, my friends wanted to come with me here so that I would show them everything. I was so scared. However, thanks for the information you sent me, I could talk with my friends about the Incas without even blinking. Then, after arriving to Lima, it was nice of you to take us to the hotel and to our next flight to Cusco. I told my friends this is the way Peruvian people are. I think that the Inca Trail was a dream come true. The guides who showed us each place knew everything. It was a truly excellent service! Next time, I will take my family and I need you guys to help me out.
Hi friends! I am Canadian and I have family in Peru. I went there a few times to see them, but I did not have time to see around any other places. Now, in this vacation I needed to relax, but also I needed to learn more about the amazing Inca culture. I got your number on the web site and the best thing I did was to call Peru Travel Now; and you Jose gave me reasonable prices... Just enough to fit my budget! Machu Picchu tours was a wonderful experience and the service in the train was the best. Thanks for remembering about the gloves I forgot there. That was so helpful! I cannot believe you did this for me. Thanks again! Machu Picchu is a place that everybody is supposed to know, and it’s more pleasant when we find kind people just like you. My best wishes to you and thanks for a wonderful experience!
I hope walter you remember me. The guys at Peru Travel Now were so kind to talk to me in a friendly manner, even when I had been passing through a rough moment, I will never forget that. Especially Walter: You Rock! Also, when you took me to Lake Titicaca, and then to the tours at Machu Picchu... well... you made me feel safe, and really thankful for your patience in answering all of my questions. I know I ask a lot of questions, but your being patient with me means a lot. And still, while being in Machu Picchu, you guys were with me all day long, letting me know about the different sites in the Sacred Valley. It was wonderful! Moreover, you have people who know everything, which made explanations much easier to understand. A hug to all of you.
What an absolutely amazing experience it was travelling with Peru Travel Now! Their staff knew exactly where to take me, and they showed me everywhere, telling me so many fascinating facts about each place like: Aguas Calientes, Wanchaq, Machu Picchu, the museums, the nice countryside, etc. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu didn’t feel tough at all. In fact, for a non-athletic person like me, this trek tour was quite pleasant. Even after my brief asthma attack, the tour guide knew exactly what to do, and he ensured that I was taken care of. But, that did not stop me from going on with the group. I learned so much about Cusco and the Incas, that I did not know what to expect when you took me to Puno, next. I loved Lake Titicaca, especially the little floating houses in the middle of the lake. If I knew I was going to enjoy this trip like that, I would have taken my parents.
My name is Karl, I love photography. I used to travel around the world on my vacations to take great pictures especially in beautiful and exotic destinations. When I decided to come to Peru, I chose the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. I was impressed, not only by its beauty, but also by the History. I learned a lot about the Incas and their legends, thanks to the Peru Travel Now guide. He really knew everything about Peruvian ancient mysteries and he spoke English fluently. It was amazing. I fell in love with this country and I hope to come back again. Peruvian people are one of a kind and the food is something you won’t forget. I swear. Thanks for this great tour Naty.
Hello Naty- My trip to Peru was a unique experience for me and my husband. We were impressed in so many levels by the ancient Peru. We arrrived to Lima, and we took a very interesting tour throughout the capital’s attractions, that’s something I didn’t expect to be so entertaining. Peru Travel Now made a great job introducing Lima to us; but it was the Machu Pichu tours and the Inca Trail what we enjoyed the most. I really want to thank Peru Ttravel Now for your well experienced guide that was helpful and very informative; and the Hotel in Cusco was very comfortable for us. I was a little bit ill by the altitude sickness, but it disappeared quickly after being given a medicinal tea. We’re planning to come back. We heard so much about Puno and Lake Titicaca, so this year we’re going to be immersed again in the Peruvian culture. Thank you very much Peru Travel Now.
Hi everyone at peru Travel Now. I just want to thank to all of you, specially to Walter, for the great vacation I had in Peru. I enjoyed so much traveling to Cusco. I love adventure and trekking, so choosing the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was a great idea. I traveled alone and I felt safe and secure with your company. I learned a lot about the Incas, since you have a very well experienced guides, and they can speak English very well. I can’t believe how beautiful Machu Picchu can be. You can feel the energy... and the views were astonishing. I also tasted the delicious Peruvian food at several fancy restaurants in Lima and Cusco. I have no complaints about the Hotels I stayed in Peru; their customer service is very good. Touring in Peru is something I recommend to everyone, specially for those who love taking pictures. You won’t regret it.
I always felt completely captivated by Peru and its culture, and when I had the chance to travel to South America on holiday, I decided to travel to Cusco. That trip was fabulous, specially the inca trail to Machu Picchu. Peru Travel Now provided a great service, the tour was amazing. It was like a real advenutre. I felt like Indiana Jones, and when me and the crew arrived to Machu Picchu citadel, we were astonished with its magic and beauty. I recommend this trip to anyone who loves spirituality and who loves to learn about ancient cultures. The Hotel I stayed in Cusco has an excellent customer service. And the Peruvian food is amazing, too.
Traveling to Peru was a great decision my girlfirend took for our vacation. Being so close to Peru, because we live in Brasil, this tour was not expensive. I love photography and I knew that Machu Picchu was the perfect place for amazing photo shoots. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was the most exciting part of the tour, because the natural sourroundings and ladscape views were very impressive. Peru Travel Now provided us experienced guides, so we learnt a lot about the Incas Culture. We also stayed in fancy hotel and ate in beautiful restaurants in Cusco. Thanks Naty and Walter. We love Peru!
I traveled to Peru recently with a friend of mine because we always wanted to feel the spiritual energy of Machupicchu. Other friends of mine traveled to Peru before and they told us about this mystical and magical place. We so totally agree! The tour to Machupicchu was incredible. The views were fantastic and we really enjoyed meeting people there. I also recommend the inca trail. We also love trekking and this ancient path was perfect for us. After being immersed in the Incas Culture, we took a short trip to the sunny beaches of the Peruvian North, and we had a great time. Thanks Peru Travel Now for a great service anf for provided us everything we need. Great guides, by the way. We learnt a lot about this beautiful country.
