Before this trip, I had limited experience holding a camera and did not know what to expect from traveling in Peru. Dan and Noe went above and beyond for their private tour. They created an extensive itinerary with attention to detail, adding in rest as needed. I was able to discover delicious Peruvian food, the vibrant micro cultures within Peru, and the diverse landscapes of Peru (rainforest, desert, ocean, mountains, alpine lakes). I had opportunities to practice newfound photographic skills. And I shared laughter and food with Dan and Noe as well as a team of other amazing locals along the way. Throughout the trip, Dan and Noe were flexible with the structured itinerary, and executed on feedback thoroughly. We could bring up suggestions or ideas and they would tap into their knowledge of photography and Peru to come up with sound plans on the spot. Overall, the trip truly felt like teamwork that catered to our individual needs, and resulted in an overall experience that is best described as bespoke. I not only learned about “the Peru of today” (Dan’s words), but gained photography skills, and new friends in Dan and Noe. Their passion for Peruvian culture and their love for photography are contagious and I could not be happier with the experience. Highly recommend the private tour with Dan and Noe.

Friends and I found Andean Photo Expeditions on Google and decided to take a chance by booking an 19 day personalized trip with them. This turned out to be this best decision we’ve made this year as the trip exceeded our wildest expectations. Unlike day tours, which Andean Photo Expeditions also offers, multi-day tours like ours provide more difficult and unpredictable logistical challenges for the operators, in this case Dan and Noe. I am happy to say that they have handled everything perfectly. Dan was meticulous in planning our expedition. We started our introduction to Peru in Arequipa region. We experienced the Salinas Salt Lagoon and saw condors, vicuñas, alpacas, flamingos etc. Then we moved on to the main course of the trip which was Cusco region. This included Machu Picchu, Rainbow Mountain, Pallay Puncho, Humantay Lake, Ausangate etc. Finally for dessert, we went to the desert and rode the sand buggy in Huacachina. The trip was cleverly structured in such a way that there was a gradual build up in altitude, physical intensity and grandeur of the views. Among the otherworldly landscapes and magnificent animals, there were also moments of real human connections. We met many local families who are friends with the guides and learned about their ways of life. The best friends that we made along the way though are no other than our brilliant guides Dan and Noe. As well as being consummate professionals, they are down to earth and great to share a drink with. We learned so much about many facets of the Peruvian life from them and in turn shared stories from our own culture. All in all, if you are going to Peru and are looking for a flexible private tour experience, I would strongly recommend Andean Photo Expeditions. This was truly a trip of a lifetime. Thank you Dan and thank you Noe!

Only the highest praise and gratitude for Andean Photo Expeditions for planning and executing a dream 19-day Peru trip. Everything was perfectly tailored to our group's interests and went off without a hitch, thanks to the team's professionalism, attention to detail, and true love and respect for the land, people and culture they were showing us. Dan and Noe took care of everything we had and hadn't thought of, without being overbearing and still giving us flexibility to shape our own adventure. Right from the start of planning months before the trip, Dan was patient and receptive to our ideas and expectations, tweaking our itinerary several times per our request. As we progressed through the schedule, our guides worked with us when we wanted to make further adjustments in the middle of the tour and took the reins on the logistical challenges of such. Our trip spanned touristic hotspots, vibrant local communities, bustling cities, vast natural reserves and remote mountains. The team treated us to a sweeping cross-section of the country and its people, opening our eyes and hearts to parts of Peru that I believe some tour groups would not have done. Remarkably, Dan and Noe also leave us much desire of the country, ensuring that we will return again in the future. It was a real treat to have had such mindful, knowledgable and trustworthy guides take us on our first trip in Peru. The team's attitude and service are of the highest calibre, after what must have been a painful lull in clients from the Covid pandemic. Andean Photo Expeditions is truly a gem and I cannot recommend them highly enough for your next holiday.

I recently did this tour with Dan. Overall excellent experience and would highly recommend it. I was picked up from my hotel on time, went to the outskirts of the city, near the Christ statue, and then slowly walked down into the city. Dan knew all the best areas for picture taking, and provided excellent advise for camera angles, settings, perspectives. I used a DSLR camera as well as iphone.

I started off with a day tour with friends around Lima with Dan and had a lot of opportunities for awesome photos of wonderful vistas of Lima, and got some great photo tips :) Then I spent 4 days with Noe on photo tours based out of Cusco. We started with the Alternate Rainbow Mountain, which was amazing! Then we continued with getting outside the city and seeing some amazing landscapes and learning more about landscape photography. My favorite day was when we went to visit a local family up in the mountains and learned about portrait photography. Bernardino cooked us a wonderful lunch and his family was so welcoming! My favorite moment was when we all piled into the van and drove up to a scenic spot overlooking a lake, and we all just sat there and enjoyed each other’s company :) Bernardino’s son even let me try to play his recorder lol Noe is a great photographer and guide and was so patient with my friend and I, and by the end of the 4 days he had both of us shooting in manual..that’s quite a feat! I highly recommend Andean Photo Expeditions and would love to go back and take some more tours with them, especially to the Amazon!
