          I'm writing this review at 6 am ,was supposed to be picked up at 5 am,nobody arrived, nobody informed me the tour was canceled, my whole reason for coming to peru was to go to Machu pichu. Flying back tomorrow, it's been a waste of time and money, very disappointed, spoke to Raul, I guess he's the tour guide and he told me it was canceled yesterday, nobody reached out, no text message, no email, nothing.

          Terrible Experience! Avoid this company!!!
          Terrible experience! Our Machu Picchu trip was cancelled by this tour company last minute (we got a message around 8pm the evening before the scheduled 4am pickup). The trip was then rearranged (at an additional cost!) for the following day, we tried calling the tour company during the day but after several attempts neither ourselves or hotel reception could get through to anyone. After failing to get hold of anyone we contacted Viator who later sent us a WhatsApp message advising that we would be picked up at a point on the main square at 4am, but to ensure we are there for 3:30am. We waited from 3:30am on the day but by around 4:15 am Amaru had not turned up so we enquired with a guide of another tour company, nearby, the guide kindly called the Amaru office and surprisingly managed to speak to someone, the person advised they would call us in 5 minutes with an update. Over 45 minutes later we had not received a call and their office was not answering (again!) so we made the decision to return to our hotel. After checking emails in the hotel, we discovered that we had a cancellation notification from the tour company at around 4:40am (so effectively over an hour after the time we had been told to meet). So to summarise, this tour company only offered us cancellations, charges to rearrange and then further cancellations, resulting in lost days due to disruption caused by their unreliability. Avoid booking with this company and choose a reliable one instead!

          Awful experience
          Terrible experience. Our group of 12 had a reservation. I tried contacting the tour guide a week before for confirmation and no response. A day before, no response. An hour before, no response. 13 minutes after the pickup was scheduled the tour guide sends a message it was cancelled. Tried calling and no response. This is a terrible company. Do not risk taking this company.

          An unforgettable experience with Amaru Explorer.
          My experience with Amaru Explorer began when we put together our program with the sites that interested us. All that process was fast and with the best disposition. I did Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, Rainbow Mountain, Moray, Maras, Humantay Lagoon, City tour. The entire program was carried out flawlessly and well above my expectations. Also, I want to thank Darwin for the willingness and concern. Also, to the guides Thelma, Percy, Jonathan who are extremely cordial, entertaining and knowledgeable on their subject. Thanks. Keep up the impeccable work you do, it is a fact that I will recommend many successes to all my friends.

          Excellent, Intelligent, Fun and Knowledgeable Guides and Crew!
          Best priced, super small groups and efficient tour. My Husband and I decided for our honeymoon to visit Cabo in Mexico and then come to Peru directly after to visit Cusco, Sacred Valley and of course the magnificent Machu Picchu! We were only in Peru 4 days so we wanted to rest, see the main sights and leave. We avoided altitude sickness by drinking liquid Chlorophyll. Chlorophyll has a similar molecular structure to human blood. Chlorophyll increases the amount of red blood cells in the human blood, which increases the protein Hemoglobin that carries oxygen. We did not use the pills we were given from our doctor before leaving the USA. Chlorophyll work wonderfully! Two days before our tour emailed Raúl, the representative of the travel agency South America Exploor. He confirmed our reservation. The company has tours daily and they are “Pros”! They will make sure they pick you up on time and get you to where you need to go! From the moment I met our first guide Juan Carlo I knew we were in store for a excellent and fun day in the Sacred Valley! He is very intelligent, beyond knowledgeable and fun! Juan Carlo will ensure you have a great time/day in the Sacred Valley and Olltambuyo. Mild gripe and something they can work on is allowing an additional 30 minutes to shop in the Famous Pisac Market directly after visiting the Sacred Valley before heading to lunch! In my opinion this was one of the best shopping areas in the region. The gem shop we stop at was very Insightful on life, energy and gems. Just needed more time to explore other stores! I love to shop! After lunch we took a 4pm train ride to Aquas Calientes (Hot Waters). It was a nice time of day to take the train, because there was still sunlight out. You are able to see the natural and magnificent beauty outside the train while you trek up to the city along the side of the phenomenal Urubamba River/Amazon River. When we arrived in Aguas Calientes we were greeted by the fabulous Hotel Host Diana! She was beyond nice, very informative about Aquas Calientes and where to eat! The hotel is a 4 min walk from the train. Extremely close. I asked Diana what her favorite restaurant was and she recommend Mapacho Craft Beer & Peruvian Cuisine. The restaurant was not only delicious, but quite the party and super fun. They even gave the husband and I two complimentary Pisco Sours!! Mmmmm Our magnificent tour guide Marcial came looking for us the night we arrived in Aquas Calientas to discuss the our tour to Macchu Picchu. We missed meeting him that night as we were enjoying our time and partying late at the Mapacho Restaraunt! Marcial left our tickets with Diana. He met us at 5:45 AM at the hotel, then we caught the bus to the Magnificat Machu Picchu. It is everything you have dreamed about and more! Having Marcial as our guide made it even more spectacular! He is positive, spiritual, extremely passionate and LOVES what he does! He is educated and has a degree in tourism as well! Beyond knowledgeable and fun to spend time with. After our Machu Picchu tour concluded my husband reminded Marcial that we had a second day lunch included in our tour package. Marcial took us to the designated restaraunt which was Tupana Wasi (II) for our lunch and joined us. We had a lot of laughs and the food was incredible! The food was some of the best we had in Peru! My only other mild gripe besides not having enough time to shop was having to take the return train so late at 7pm. My recommendation to the tour company would be to book the train between 3-4pm. This would give you time to eat after Machu Picchu then be able to take the train in sun light to Ollytambuyo, see the beauty outside and arrive to Cusco at a decent hour instead of in the dark at 11pm at night. Other than that, this excursion will not disappoint! Excellent Excursion. Thank you South America Exploor travel agency!

          Got there in the end but it was organised chaos
          For anyone going to Machu Picchu via tour group service. Please read this review, as a first time goer to Machu Picchu and South America. I've learnt a lot and enjoyed so many things about Peru. Now for these tour groups - There are several things you need to brace yourself for in advance before going on them. 1) Early starts - You will begin the journey in your hotel in Cuzco to catch the train to Aquas Calientes usually in the evening where you will stay the night at a random hotel or hostel. These usually provide some sort of breakfast in the morning. But you have to get up at 5am to check out and catch the bus at 6am where you will still have to wait for the tour guide. 2) Dealing with lots of uncertainty - I didnt receive any tickets, accommodation details only until 2 hours prior the tour begins/catching your bus or train. Despite booking months in advance and asking for details beforehand. You will have to go on a gut instinct as I had to WhatsApp message the tour group, what exactly was going on. And they only drip fed the information. For example, I didnt know which bus to take as I had no bus ticket. I get a message that the hotel staff will print it out for me and another person will drop off my Machu Picchu ticket when I arrive. 3) Control your bladder Toilet stops are a luxury as they will make sure you go see everything in a limited amount of time. So the tour group essentially divides the tourists to smaller tour group so they can get a profit too from what I observed. This is fine but what happens is that everyone experiences different levels of quality. I enjoyed the tours with Elizabeth for Sacred Valley and Raul did his best but felt like he rushed the tour.
