This review is overdue, I had written it out then accidentally deleted it! Ugh. Then got COVID and alas her we go...

I cannot say enough good things about our recent trip to Peru with Peru Eco Expeditions! Outstanding on all levels. From the booking through to execution everything was 100% and exceeded our expectations.

I had originally reached out to Sara as we had booked the Palccoyo biking day trip and our plans changed and need to fill in an entire week. We had intended to go with Backroads and a group of friends, but with late notice they all backed out. I sent my wish list itinerary to Sara and she followed up with suggestions that were all outstanding. Plus they were able to accomodate last minute additions to our itinerary.
They customized the week for us and provided all transportation, pick up from airports, forwarding luggage, tour guides, shaman you name it! They even arranged flowers for mother’s day from my hubby to me while we were away.

The altitude kicked my butt but Daniel and his guides were all very patient with me and truly this helped make this a trip of a lifetime!

The drivers, guides and unique bespoke experiences they planned for us were all outstanding! Somehow Daniel seemed to find a way to time things that we often had these experiences to ourselves and avoided crowds.

Everything was personalized and his passion for his country was evident and a family affair with his mom even making the most delicious picnic lunches for us. Our trip was 9 days with a jam packed itinerary and we felt so well looked after.

Our itinerary included a 1/2 day trip in Cusco, transfer to Machu Picchu (we went by train and they sent our luggage on ahead to our next hotel for us), Sacred Valley, where we went to the Salt Mines, road horseback through the Andes, climbed trails with epic views, Palccoyo mountains and so much more!

We have travelled numerous times with Backroads and Kensington Tours and Daniel & Sara exceeded our expectations!
I only wish that they offered their service in more countries as I’d love to have that level of service again!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I don't know where to start...
Peru Eco Expeditions went absolutely above and beyond formalising a private itinerary for 13 days of magic in Peru.

Sara and Daniel held this trip that was scheduled in May 2020 during the height of covid, and waited until we could resume international travel 3 years later.

From when we arrived, right back until the last airport drop off to come home, every single detail was customed to a flawless and smooth holiday experience.

From day trips of mountain bike riding, cliff climbing, white water rafting, train tripping to engaging the most incredible tour company to complete the 4 day inca trail tour, these guys know how to prepare a fulfilling schedule with the right amount of down time inbetween.

We are utterly grateful to Peru Eco Expeditions for the most wonderful taste of a small drop in a very large South America 😊

This was by far the most adventure with the Luxury of having Daniel and Sara to guide us ☺️. Seriously we asked for a lot in two weeks and Sara made it happen. Sara was always answered all my many questions and was overly kind and helpful when planning. We didn’t worry about driving, booking anything, best hotels, waters, most our food, and were taken care of so well. Every person they employed was super kind and just a blast to be around. We loved our driver Kaitono (I’m sure I spelled that wrong ). I felt like I was leaving family. I will miss Daniel and my babe😉 Sara so much. I can’t say I have ever had that experience before.

Daniel & Sara have created an amazing company that shows how much they care and love Peru but exude it in the way they guided us and showed care for their clients. We had a group of five ladies and we were treated like queens. If we needed to go to the bathroom, they handled it. If we asked for anything they provided with a smile and if your lucky a hug :). We had an emergency and Daniel & Sara made sure to assist us and also not miss any of our trip.

I loved all our adventures (biking the Amazon, watching the cock of the rock, hiking lares and Inca trail, omg the skylodge is a must due, all the amazing archaeological sites, Machu Picchu, and biking rainbow mountain). I know I’m missing stuff because we did sooo much but they were all amazing. It left me wanting to see more. Peru has sooo much to offer. Great food, great experiences, amazing sites, and top notch people.

I highly suggest if you have the extra money to spend to use this company. They plan everything out for you and use the best companies. It was nice not to worry about a thing. We almost felt lost with out them.
So if you want a few day to yourself, you need only to ask. We jam packed ours and I wish I had more time to see more.
I can’t say enough good things about the company but more importantly the two who own it. So glad we were blessed to have them for the start of travel back to Peru.

Side notes : mask and shields are required on the planes. Mask were required at most places with people :) like archaeological sites, trains…

Misti it was our absolute pleasure to plan this epic experience for you and guide you on-site! We loved your group so much because of their positive attitude, outlook on life and flexibility / understanding about traveling during the covid situation. The good news is that face shields are no longer required on planes and the restrictions are starting to ease here in Peru. We also wanted to thank not only our Peru Eco Expeditions full on-site team, but our valued vendor partners, Apus Peru, who operated the Lares Trek and Natura Vive who operates the Skylodges. It takes a team effort and we are thrilled that you enjoyed all of our services from Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Amazon, Machu Picchu, Palccoyo & Lake Titicaca! Daniel and I truly felt that we were on your vacation - not guiding it! Again, thank you for still coming to Peru during this time, supporting our local economy and just being the absolute best people! We miss you! Besos, Sara & Daniel Bustamante

There are no words to describe my appreciation for Sara and Daniel. If you are looking for a travel agency that goes above and beyond to ensure all of your needs are met, look no further. Sara and Daniel worked tirelessly to help get my best friend out of Salvacion and back into Cusco amidst the Corona Quarantine when all other outlets had failed us. Sara directly helped us communicate with the US Embassy and Peruvian officials for days. We surmounted an unusual amount of obstacles along the way, but throughout the entire grueling process Sara remained steadfast—offering comfort and alternative ideas to get my friend safely out. If it were not for this incredible couple, my best friend would surely still be stuck in Salvacion with an indefinite release and a lack of proper supplies and medical care nearby. Never in my life have I heard of a travel agency that has gone to these lengths out of the pure kindness of their hearts. Book with them! I can guarantee you will not be disappointed ♥️

Thank you so much for such a kind review! I am so happy that we were able to successfully evacuate your group from the Amazon during the COVID-19 quarantine and that they are now safe & sound in Cusco!

Our family of six enjoyed an unforgettable week in Peru with Peru Eco Expeditions! We like to really pack in the unique experiences and learn as much as possible about the history and culture of a place when we travel. Mission accomplished! Sara created an enriching agenda for each day, complete with gorgeous hotels, intelligent and kind guides and seamless transportation and logistics. We felt cared for, looked after and safe while also trying completely new experiences! Our itinerary included: Lima tour, Machu Picchu, horseback riding, biking down Rainbow Mt., cooking class, and a tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We arrived back home amazed at what we were able to see, do and learn in and about Peru during our stay. If you are seeking a partner to provide a full, meaningful immersion into Peru, look no further than Peru Eco Expeditions! Thank you, Sara, Daniel, Hans, Carlos, Chef Jose, the team of incredible drivers, the owners of the gorgeous hotels and all who helped us along the way! Our family will always be grateful and appreciative of what you shared of yourselves and your beautiful country of Peru! A gift that will last a lifetime!

I cannot recommend this company enough. I looked into other travel agencies/tours and nothing compared to Peru Eco Expeditions. Sara curated our itinerary specifically for things we wanted to do, our interests (like food and hiking), and to our budget. This is so rare, as most other agencies have cookie cutter tours.

The hotels we stayed at were incredible. I enjoyed that we didn’t have to join a larger group, it was just my travel group of 4 plus our guide and driver the entire time. We avoided some “tourist traps” and got to enjoy more authentic experiences because of the expertise of Sara, Daniel, and their team. There were so many personal touches and careful considerations that I was not expecting that made this trip extra special.

If you are planning on visiting Peru I highly recommend Peru Eco Expeditions - you will be in fantastic hands.

We truly had the most amazing experience with Daniel and Sara. I contacted them a little later than I would have liked, in my planning process, and Sara responded immediately and catered to all of the wishes/hopes that I had in putting together the two days that I had available in the Sacred Valley, while enhancing my ideas with so many amazing additions and options. She was so communicative, helpful, and able to adapt to and personalize everything I wanted. She sent the most helpful and descriptive itineraries, and everything went flawlessly.

Daniel and Sara met us at our hotel in Cusco the first day and we spent the day with them driving into the Sacred Valley. My hope for that day was to see the Pisac Archaeological Site and the Pisac Market. Sara added in an experience feeding and learning about llamas and alpacas and their wool. We then went to the Pisac Archaeological Site, and were able to see the whole site and then hike the Pisac Ridge down into the town and visit the market. It was stunning. We finished up visiting a traditional empanada oven, and heading back into Cusco.

The next morning Daniel met us at our hotel again, and we went to a local community for a textile demonstration, and then on to the Maras Salt Mines. We then had the amazing opportunity to raft on the Urubamba River into Ollantaytambo. It was fun and such a unique experience. We finished up the afternoon visiting the Pumamarca Ruins and hiking through the canyon back toward Ollantaytambo, finishing with visiting the Ollantaytambo Archaeological Site. We had an amazing time.

I couldn't say enough good about Peru Eco Expeditions and Daniel and Sara. They were so fun to hang out with, answered a million questions from us, and planned the most perfect, personalized itineraries for us. I would recommend them to anyone looking to plan their time in Peru. I can't imagine more personalized attention in designing the perfect experience for your particular interests.

Daniel took us on an amazing hike to seven lakes at Ausangate. He both knew his stuff and was friendly. He readily answered questions and his wife worked with my friend to design the perfect day hike. It's very much a family affair as his mother makes the food, which far surpassed any box lunches we had on previous hikes. The hike was sensational and comes highly recommended from our group!

In September 2021, we took a 10 day trip to Peru with one other couple. The trip included visits to the Amazon, Cusco and no surprise, Machu Picchu. Never having been to Peru and with only a rudimentary knowledge of Spanish, we decided to outsource the entire trip to Peru Eco Expeditions. They came highly recommended by another couple that had used them in 2019. What a great choice. Sara and Daniel Bustamante, planned and customized the entire trip, based on our preferences. The only thing we had to do was get on a plane to Peru and back to the US. Everything else in between was taken care of. Lodging, logistics, guides, food etc. Daniel was able to accompany us for most of the time and is, besides a great travel companion, extremely knowledgeable about animals, flora, architecture, as well as current Peruvian and Inca culture. We also enjoyed Sara’s company during several days. Their attention to detail was remarkable from meals to clothing requirements to luggage lost, the list goes on. We very much recommend Peru Eco Expeditions and if we ever visit Peru again, they would be our absolute first choice.

We just got back from an unforgettable week in Peru organized by Sara and Daniel. Our heads are in the clouds and our eyes full of sparkles. Our trip was much better then anything we had expected (and we are picky) !! we loved being so immersed in the traditional culture as well as being so close to the nature, feeling very secure and comfortable all along. We travelled for 7 days around el Valle Sagrado and Cusco, Daniel and Sara planned our stay meticulously taking into consideration we were accompanied by our 3 children ( 14y/ 12y and 7y) nevertheless we hiked part of the Inka trail very confidently and to the Rainbow mountain as well.
Both Daniel and Sara have lived around the world; they are very knowledgeable, fun and easy to relate to. There are many places in Peru we did not have the time to visit this trip but we are excited have found the best guides to start planning next Peru trip already!
