My family and I did the classic 4 day Inca trail to Machu Picchu in August 2017 and had such a fantastic time with Jaime that, when we were in the area again in August 2019, we booked to do the two day Inca trail to Machu Picchu with Jaime. We found Jaime to be a very knowledgable guide with lots of interesting insights. He was also very good company and he got on very well with the entire family. Having Jaime as our guide was a huge part of what made the trip so successful and enjoyable. Jaime was very supportive when we struggled and motivated us to keep going in a way that made the hardest parts feel manageable - I would never have got up Dead Woman’s Pass without him! Jaime always stayed with the group, going at the pace of the slowest, which made us all feel safe and looked-after, something I know from previous experience not all guides do. I would 100% recommend Jaime and look forward to trekking with him again next time I am in Cusco!

So in August 2019 we did the 2 day Inca Trail with Jaime. We did the classic Inca Trail with him in August 2017. Because the 2017 trip had been so amazing we booked with him again in 2019. It is hard to explain what an amazing guide he is. Both treks but in particular the first are very challenging. Jaime is massively supportive and encouraging. He helped us when we struggled - he is very patient and helps to dispel moments of self doubt. He is also very good company, has a good sense of humour and makes the treks fun. He is very knowledgeable. We were trekking with our adult kids and Jaime was great with my husband and me(in our early sixties)and our grown up kids(in their twenties). He was a great hit with all of us. He has the ability to make you feel safe and to make it fun too. Our kids speak Spanish and they spoke to Jaime in Spanish at times. His English is excellent. We hope to return to Cusco soon and do the Choquequirao trek with Jaime. I simply cannot recommend Jaime as a guide too highly.

We did a back to front 4D3N Lares trek with Elias, starting in the Sacred Valley, ending in the thermal springs of Lares. I could wax lyrical for pages and pages of all the things we experienced, but you'd need a couple of hours, so I'll put it in dot points ;). 1. Elias is well read, knowledgeable about flora and fauna and a passionate bird watcher. He is patient, warm, friendly, super organised, highly experienced and fun! 2. His team were fantastic. Gido the cook was jolly and kind and what he could cook up on a camp stove was exceptional. 3.The walk was challenging and we all hit hard spots, my husband really struggled with the altitude (oxygen was on hand), my daughter pulled a muscle and found uphill super painful (a mule was available just at the crucial moment), my other daughter struggled with altitude (we slowed our pace until she felt better), I twisted my kneecap (a knee brace was supplied and then a hail storm provided a nice ice bath!). We were well looked after. 4. The scenery was absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful. The sound of running water accompanied us always. 5. Every detail was well planned and executed, including the hotel in Aguas Calientes, and lunches we had there. 6. The drive from Lares to Ollantaytambo was eye mistingly spectacular and our driver had the biggest, warmest smile that felt like a hug each time he picked us up. 7. History came alive as we walked through ancient sites and peeked into life hundreds and at times,thousands of years ago. 8. We're a bilingual family (Spanish/English) and we found ourselves slipping in and out of both languages with ease with Elias - his English is great. Big thanks to Elias and all at Peru Sensations for an unforgettable journey!

My friend and i decided on another trip of a lifetime after the last one 36 years ago - we trekked for 4 days up and over the Salkantay Pass, the weather was not the best but the small group and our wonderful guide Jaime made it all a lot of fun - Jaime was exceptional with his English and very thorough knowledge of the history and also the flora and fauna of the area . Another Very memorable trip

My sister and I travelled together for the first time together to celebrate my birthday by climbing Machu Picchu. We did the 2-day Inca Trail, spending a night in Aguas Calientes. Jaime Zuniga was our guiding light throughout the entire journey, starting from an orientation meet-up the night before our trip to provide an overview of what the trek would like, right to the end by escorting my sister and I back to our hotel once we returned to Cusco. The 2-day trek was incredible and perfect for our needs and comfort levels. Jaime was always ready to answer whatever questions we posed about the history of the train and Incan civilization, sharing anecdotes about his own family allowing us to get to know him a little more. Jaime was always making sure we were traveling at a comfortable pace, checking how we were feeling and providing tips on how to breathe properly while hiking. Neither myself nor my sister are big experienced hikers, and Jaime was extremely patient with a great sense of humor and kind heart. Peru Sensations and Jaime also prepared delicious lunch boxes for us, which were a great mid-trek reward! We would highly recommend this company and especially Jaime!!!
