Having to get a Covid test for our international flight to Lima, Peru was the most inconvenient part of our trip south to Peru June 2021. ILE Tours helped us every step of the way. Before booking they sent us an itinerary that we were able to review and change so we added a 3 days in the Amazon Rainforest. All airport transfers (that I worried extensively over wondering if we would really be greeted upon arrival) were reliable, friendly, easy and never an issue.

We spent 10 days total visiting the Tambopata Reserve, Cusco, Machu Picchu, all the Inca sites and Lima. They were always available on Whatsapp so we could get questions answered immediately wherever we were. This is priceless to a chronic worrying traveler like me. Finally before departing Mark from their office took us to a clinic in Cusco so we could get our Covid testing done for our flights. He picked us up, took us to the clinic and got us a 25% discount on the tests because he new the attendant at the clinic's admittance counter. I can't recommend ILE Tours more with their personal service, great price and attention to all the small things. 5 stars.

We did a tour of Peru with my family. Some of it was classic Peru (Machu Picchu, lake Titicaca, Cusco, sacred valley) but we also did some of the less visited places of Peru, Puerto Maldonado, Tumbes...
Mark was working with us from the moment we decided we liked his itinerary.
There was always someone to assist us during the trip and we kept contact with Mark via Whatsapp.
The organization of the trip was amazing and we still felt we were traveling on our own, not a part of a big bus group which we hate. It was just well taken care of us. The hotels were all on good locations and were really nice. So I can only recommend ILE Tours if you don't like big bus groups where you always have to adjust to others, but do not want to go through the hassle of intense planning, ILE tours is the way to go.

It was our absolutely pleasure meeting you and helping your plan your extensive 22 day Peru itinerary. You saw the best of the desert coast, northern beaches, Andes Mountains and Amazon Rainforest. You guys really were flexible, adaptable, patient and wonderful travelers. We love when our passengers communicate with us on WhatsApp so we can be in 24/7 contact to answer questions, send last minute info, ticket re-prints, boarding passes, bus tickets and just to ask them how they are doing. But our favorite part is when they send us photos of their adventures. Thank you for entrusting us with helping you plan your trip to all parts of Peru. Hope to see you soon!

ILE Tours is a perfect travel agency both for those who want to know the most popular destinations in Peru and for those who have already visited them and want to know other beautiful, but not so famous, places in this very rich country, which was our case. Held in September 2022, our trip was carefully planned according to the places we wanted to visit.

We first visited Ayacucho, which served as a base to discover the turquoise waters of Millpu, the beautiful Qorihuillca Canyon and the archaeological sites of Pumacocha and Usnu. Then we went to Arequipa, where we visited the Plaza de Armas and the main historic buildings in the area. On the last day, we went to see the Sillar Route and the Culebrillas Canyon.

We then set off towards the Colca Valley, where we could appreciate the Andes from the Cruz del Condor viewpoint, and relax, in the late afternoon, in some of the region's thermal water pools. We then stopped for a full day at the Colca Lodge Hotel, one of the best places to stay in the Valley, whose private natural thermal pools delight everyone who stays there. Finally, we leave the Colca Valley and head to Puno, where we visit Lake Titicaca with its floating islands as well as the Inca Qamaña Rest Temple.

This fantastic trip, planned with much love by ILe Tours from a preliminary itinerary suggested by us, would not have been possible if we had not hired this excellent tour operator from Peru.

To the team, thank you very much for all your attention and for providing us with this very rich experience. We love your country.

We were in Peru from March 7-12, 2020, and every detail of our stay was arranged to perfection by Mark of Ile Tours. While my husband trekked to Machu Picchu, I was accompanied by tour guide extraordinaire, Miguel, who guided me through the Inca ruins of Cusco, then to a spa retreat in the Sacred Valley, where I participated in a private session with a shaman. From the Sacred Valley, I traveled by Vistadome train to Aguas Calientes, staying in a lovely hotel overlooking the river, and with a private tour of Machu Picchu the next day.

Mark greeted us personally when we arrived in Cusco and personally ushered us to and through the airport for our return flight. An American living in Cusco, Mark was attuned to our needs, truly taking care of us with personal detail and attention.

When our morning flight from Cusco made for a layover in Lima, Mark arranged a tour of the city while we waited for our overnight flight returning to the US. We were greeted at the airport and the Lima day tour was informative and memorable.

Our day guides in Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and Lima were all professional, knowledgeable, and personable. They were eager to share their knowledge not only of the historical sites but of their city, food, and culture.

If your travels take you to Peru, I highly recommend that you call Mark at Ile Tours. Also, for Cusco, ask for Miguel to be your guide -- he's a gentle soul who loves his city, the Sacred Valley, and his Inca heritage.

ILE tours were simply excellent. The guides were extremely knowledgeable. They planned everything for us from accommodations to transportation starting in Lima all the way through Cusco, Machu Picchu and Arequipa. The tour was simply amazing. They made sure the hotels were in the middle of the cities close to restaurants. I highly recommend them for your trip in Peru.

Mark and his team created a marvelous experience for our family of five over a week of Peru highlights. From the scenic beauty of Lake Titicaca, through the Andean plane on the luxury Andean Explorer train and on to Cusco our connections were perfect, accommodations luxurious and our guides knowledgeable and fun. We felt secure and well cared for the whole time. Our tour of Machu Picchu with our spiritual and sage guide Reuben was all we expected and more. Mark and ILE treated us superbly. I recommend his team very highly!

Planning a trip to Peru is much more challenging for me than going to Europe, and I wasn't able to find the time to start with train air and hotel reservations for our family of 4. As I had read reviews on T.A. about ILE tours, and how people were happy with the services, I e mailed Mark. He called me and spent a long time chatting about what I was interested in, We went back and forth with e mails and nailed down an itinerary for 19 days, and I held my breath and wire transferred a 30% deposit to his company. Absolutely no problems, from there we worked out the details of hotels and trains, and left all the reservations and arrangements to him. I wired the remaining final payment, over-packed, and took the night flight LAX- Lima. We had a connection in Lima to Arequipa, but for some unforeseen reason Lima airport closed, so Mark found me a great hotel in Miraflores for the evening, and we lost our first night in Arequipa. However, we took the next early am flight to Arequipa, and Mark was able to change our horse ride and rafting to meet our new messed up schedule. A day later we were picked up and drove to Colca Canyon, then onto Puno, and then the party train to Cuzco, etc. Every place had a driver waiting for us and a great hotel with wonderful breakfasts. Mark picked us up at the train station in Cuzco, and recommended a wonderful place for dinner - Limo. Yum! Following, we went to Macchu Picchu, my kids climbed the Huyanapicchu, took train back to Cuzco, and then off to the rainforest, Paracas, and home. He sent me e mails often asking how everything was. He arranged dune buggies, sand boarding, horse riding, rafting, and great Peruvian hotels.

All his drivers and guides were super friendly, spoke great English, and were always on time and professional. If anyone wants to contact me, send me an e mail and I will answer any questions. Please don't hesitate to use his company, they are based in Cuzco, not USA, but being local they can take care of everything, especially when some kind of unforeseen thing happens -- like the airport closing for the day.

After our trip to the Galapagos, we got in touch with ILE and told them what we wanted to do in the Cusco area. They arranged a custom itinerary including flights from Lima, great Cusco hotel, travel to the Sacred Valley, to Machu Picchu, and the incredible Inti Raymi festival. We had a great time and could not have asked for a better co to work with. Professional, flexible, responsive, proactive, and fun!!

My wife and I spent almost spent two weeks in Peru a month ago and it was absolutely amazing! We went to Inti Raymi, Trekked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu (HIGHLY RECOMMEND, BRUTAL AND BEAUTIFUL!) and spent a few days in the Amazon. It was a trip my wife and I will never forget!

This unforgettable trip was because of Mark and ILE Tours. Before the trip, Mark was constantly in communication with us setting expectations as well as answering the plethora of questions we threw at him. Also, I think it is worth mentioning that Mark is originally from the US and now lives in Peru with his family. He was once a tourist and is now a local. To get that type of insight through his lens is priceless.

Mark also understands that the first step off the plane can set the tone for the entire trip. That said, once you arrive he doesn't vanish, but rather shows up at the airport to meet and greet you as well visit you periodically at the hotel to check in. He is available during the entire trip if you have any questions/concerns. This is the type of personal service that all travel companies should mirror. For Mark and his family, the travel company isn't just a job, its their passion. Mark, thank you again for a wonderful trip!

Mark and ILE Tours created an amazing, first class and affordable tour for us in Peru. Mark is an American and it is very helpful to have somebody who speaks English help you plan your trip and be available on the ground; this ensures there are no miscommunications due to language barriers. ILE is also small which means you get personable service and they are very happy to customize an itinerary.

ILE booked us in outstanding locally owned and run hotels - much better than the more expensive hotels I had originally been considering. The local guides Mark set us up with were wonderful and gave us a real understanding of the country. Mark checked in with us at the end of each day and most mornings to ensure all our needs were being met.

I have planned vacations with several tour companies and Mark and ILE are the best I have ever used. It would be hard to find a company that provides better customer service or attention to detail. No request is too small.

My friends and I still smile when we think of our trip to Peru and Mark is one of our happy memories.
