“Nice trip but make sure to review what is being booked”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

We did have a great driver and guide, but part way into the trip found out that the trip we'd thought we booked was not the same one that we were on. This company has several tours. I thought when I was booking from the webpage, that I was also choosing the tour. A later email attachment showed a booking for a different trip. The owner was kind enough to let us finish the tour as we'd intended but we felt uncomfortable about the whole situation.

“Dependable, Flexible and Peruvian Owned - They can do anything!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

We used Peru Adventure Tours (PAT), Arequipa and Cusco, to arrange our 16 day family tour. Our plan was to see everything we could in that time and we had a long list of desires. This required that we move often and over great distances. It was rare we stayed in a hotel more than one night.

PAT was able to arrange all guides, private transport, lodging and entrance to attractions for our very complex schedule. Early in the trip, I was concerned whether or not our next guide and driver would show up, but PAT never failed us and I soon relaxed. In addition to standards like Machu Picchu and the Nasca lines, they were able to add novelties like the Puerta de Hayu Marca, a jungle lodge and a day with dune buggies and sandboards.

I recommend them without any hesitation. Peru Adventure Tours will provide you with a specific contract at a very reasonable price with high quality service and personnel. You can trust them with your Peru travel plans.

Note: Spring for the 3-4 star hotel upgrade, well worth the money. Most meals were provided, depending on logistics, but the hotel breakfast buffets serve seriously runny scrambled eggs!

General Peru Tips: 1. Bring a roll of toilet paper to carry in your day bag. Many public toilets either do not provide TP or they charge for a few squares! 2. It is unwise for tourists to trust tap water in Peru. A UV light purifier can be purchased at outdoor shops for $70 and is perfect for killing any water borne bugs that might bother your tummy. Use lithium batteries in it. 3. Bring all meds you might need. The local boticas do not carry a wide selection of products and are very expensive: $35 for an ineffective nasal spray and ibuprofen goes for 50 cents per 400 mg. tablet!
