We had a wonderful day of wine tasting in the Casablanca valley, Kylie was our guide and she was very knowledgeable and great fun to be with. We tasted at both large and small wineries with some great intimate experiences and behind the scenes looks. We also had an amazing 5 course prix fixe' lunch with paired wines at Casas del Bosque winery, would highly recommend.

On the recommendation of friends we arranged a trip to Peru (including a four day trek to Machu Picchu) and to Ecuador (including a four day cruise to the Galapagos) through Escaped to Latin America. Many thanks to Gary Sargent for pulling the plan together. Everything went smoothly and punctually.
There were a great many highlights on the programme, Cusco is beautiful, the Sacred Valley is full of awe inspiring sites, and the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu really gives a great introduction to the landscape, archaeology and history fully essential to appreciate Machu Picchu itself. A very special thank you to Yaritza Frisancho Chavez, our guide, togehter, with the fantastic chef and porters who led us through the route (the team came from Lima Tours). The overall programme also allowed us to see some genuinely interesting craft and culture demos (ie not just sales pitches) and to have a great trip to Lima (a fantastic half day gastronomy tour, strongly recommended, followed by an equally interesting city tour, make sure you go to the Fountain park at the end of the day). Ecuador was a great experience too (we went with Go Galapagos) and Rodrigo was a fine guide to the city. The cruise was a delight, informative, stimulating, and relaxing at the same time. Again we were blessed with superb guides.

We've just returned from the amazing trip to Peru which we booked with Escaped to Latin America company (Escape to Peru division). This tour was originally booked in 2019 for April 2020 with Rob as out agent. Everything was customized for our needs, like we added Nazca Lines and some free days in Cusco and Lima, added more days in Sacred Valley, etc. Before we could travel Covid came, so we moved our trip to fall 2020, then spring 2021 and finally to spring 2022 and this time it worked.
All this time Rob was keeping in touch about what was going on in Peru with the pandemic and he was moving all our tours and tickets, including internal flights with Latam without any charge and complains. This was nice comparing with the headache we had, trying to move flight tickets with Latam and United airlines from Canada to Peru and back.
Most of our trip went as planned, except for our visit to Lake Titicaca. JUL airport just decided to cancel all flights for a week, the day we supposed to fly there. We've contacted Escape to Peru and they worked with the Condor Travel, our operator on the ground, so we had everything resolved before the end of the day with some itinerary change.
So the travel was managed very well, and we certainly will travel with Escape to Latin America in the future.

We worked with Rob from Escaped to Latin America to put together a custom South American trip. Rob was so helpful in answering our questions, providing guidance and suggestions and making changes to our itinerary as we honed in on what we truly wanted to explore. Sadly due to Covid our trip was cancelled (for the time being). Rob and Gary worked tirelessly to refund our entire deposit even though some of the in country airlines we booked with went out of business. We really appreciate the professional way they handled this unprecedented time in the world of travel. When it is safe for us to travel we will for sure use Escaped to Latin America.

We use Escaped to Latin America to create a wonderful vacation to Peru (Machu Picchu). They developed the itinerary designed based on what we wanted to see and do. They planned for local guides, transportation, restaurants and boutique hotels throughout the entire trip from Lima to Machu Picchu and back. I highly recommend this group.

Just got back from a 3 1/2 week trip to Peru and Ecuador. Had to hike Machu Picchu and snorkel Galapagos. Everything else was icing on the cake that I left up to Rob at Escaped to Latin America. Not one hitch or gliche. Every single pick up, transfer, drop off was punctual and as planned. I did not stress once on this trip- the services were punctual, professional, excellent English speaking guides, great accommodations and safe clean vehicles and drivers. Would use this company again in a minute. Thanks Rob and Gary. Did take prescribed anti-altitude meds that really helped make the whole experience even better.

What a great trip. Rob helped plan the most incredible trip once again. We just got back from Ecuador and everything went perfectly. We did a detailed route through the country. Hiked volcanoes and the Amazon. Visited several cities and had a great time. Their advice and direction helped so much and we are very experienced travelers. We had a guide and driver every day which made things easy and seamless.
Traveling during the pandemic scared us, but we went and we are so glad we did.

My partner and I recently traveled to Perú for 11 days and we are super happy with the trip that Rob from
Escaped to Latin America helped us put together. Rob was very thorough and responsive
to all of our inquiries during the entire planning process. When designing the itinerary, he always
took into account our needs, interests, and budget. Consequently we ended up having a beautiful and unforgettable trip. When we arrived at Perú they connected us to a local guide/tour agency called Condor and both companies worked together seamlessly. Only once was the Condor guide delayed, but it actually worked out perfectly because it gave us a window of opportunity to pet a bunch of llamas and alpacas in Chinchero while we waited!

During our trip we visited Lima, several towns in the Sacred Valley, Macchu Picchu, Huayna Picchu, Cusco, Puno & Lake Titicaca. Our favorite places were Lima (if you love big cities, you will love it), Machu Picchu (must see), Huayna Picchu (magical hiking experience, not for the faint hearted though), and Lake Titicaca (one of a kind destination). The altitude was a bit challenging for us, specifically after arriving in Cusco and Puno. But getting to see the Uros floating island and Taquile Island in the middle of Lake Titicaca was worth it. After this experience, we would definitely book again with Escaped to Latin America. Thanks so much Rob!

My friend and I had saved for this trip of a lifetime for quite a while. We actually contacted several travel agencies, because of the diverse requirements we had. But Rob from "Escaped to Latin America" came through with flying colors! We wanted to get out in the local communities, try local fare and be immersed in this culture as well as being pampered. Rob put a killer itinerary together for us in record time and covered it all! We visited Quito and cruised Galapagos in Equador. Visited Lima, the Amazon, Sacred Valley. From there we hiked the Salkantay trek, explored Machu Picchu, Cusco, and lake Titicaca. Our guides were on time, flexible, knowledgeable and prepared. People in the local communities were welcoming and happy to share their customs, knowledge or backyard! I would do it again in a heartbeat!
