Trip-Peru Travel Agency - an excellent choice

Last summer, I was searching for info about a travel company called Trip-Peru. They were recommended by another travel agency who does not operate in South America. I found very little information about the company but after obtaining trip cost quotes from several companies, our group of 8 decided to book with Trip-Peru.

We have just returned from a two week trip to Ecuador and Peru and Trip-Peru did a great job taking care of us and all of the details. More specifically, our travel specialist at Trip-Peru was Claudia Gil Arroyo and she did an excellent job of making sure everything was perfect. We had a great trip and I highly recommend Trip-Peru. I would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them.

Here are a few examples of the excellent service we received:

1- We were scheduled for the June 16th Celebrity Xpedition sailing in the Galapagos and the cruise was canceled on Monday, June 10th. Since we had worked with Trip-Peru to book a second week in Cusco and Machu Picchu to follow our Galapagos cruise, I called Claudia on Tuesday morning and explained the situation. We still really wanted to visit the Galapagos but knew that it was terribly short notice to find 4 rooms or a cruise in the Galapagos by 5:00pm that day. After 6:00pm, if necessary, no adjustments could be made to our flights without significant costs.

In a couple of hours, Claudia called back to confirm that she had found 4 rooms at the Finch Bay Hotel in Santa Cruz, hotel rooms in Quito, Ecuador for the pre and post Galapagos portion of the trip, and round trip flights from Quito to Santa Cruz. We were left with plenty of time to make changes to our flight from Atlanta to Quito.

2- Our group flew from Quito to Lima and on to Cusco where we stayed two nights before traveling to Machu Picchu. When we arrived in Machu-Picchu, one of the guys in our group realized that he had left his wallet in the hotel safe in Cusco. He called Claudia who promptly contacted the hotel and confirmed that the wallet was there and would be held at the office until we returned to Cusco to spend one more night before flying to Lima.

3- Our tour guides in Cusco, Machu Picchu, and Lima were excellent.

4- In every city we visited, Claudia had arranged for us to be met by representatives who escorted us to and from the airports and hotels. They took care of all of the details of checking us into hotels and flights.

In summary, Claudia and Trip-Peru were great to work with and I highly recommend them. They were absolutely wonderful!

We are booked with Trip-Peru Agency next week. Our Trip Specialist is Lady Sanchez.

Did you have any problems with getting enough bottled water for medications etc. Also did you have any problems with altitude sickness.

Thanks

I plan to have a family trip to Peru this Christmas and now narrow down to two agents. Trip-Peru provides cheaper quote but the other agent relatively "well-known" in this forum. Thanks for providing information of Trip-Peru. Do all tour in your trip handle by Trip-Peru people? Will they "sell" the tour to other agent if not enough headcount in the trip?

Bob G,

We experienced no shortage of bottled water. We were offered water when we were picked up at the airports for transportation to the hotels. We also had bottles of water in our hotel rooms and could get additional bottles if needed. No problem with having water available or finding bottled water.

We didn't experience altitude sickness but our doctor did provide us with a prescription for a drug to help prevent this. However, I stopped taking the medicine after two days because it made me dizzy. Even without the medicine, I didn't have any problems. We did take it easy the first day and night we were in Cusco and drank lots of water. I think that helped.

Hope you enjoy your trip.

mkdn,

Our group consisted of only 8 people and we were never put with another tour group. Also, I'm not aware of Trip-Peru selling their tours but they do have partners. In Peru, our tour guides and transportation to and from the airport was handled by Condor Travel but we only corresponded with Claudia at Trip-Peru. Claudia even met us at the Lima airport when we arrived to go over the details of the remainder of our trip. They all interacted like one agency and none of the details fell through the cracks. Hope you enjoy your trip.

We had a 10 day customized Peru-trip in August 2013 Peru-trip, which covered a lot of things and our agent was Claudia Gil Arroyo.

This was my first time traveling to South America, to a place where I don’t have much knowledge of and lack language skills. I traveled with my teenage son and my daughter. It was quite uncomfortable to make the decision to going there; I guess I was just scared.

In the Trip Advisor forum, people had good words about Trip–Peru, especially my agent Claudia. These comments made me decide to go. Now after the trip, I want to say I am very happy about the trip and Claudia did a wonderful job to help me to enjoy the trip. Her help and her service were excellent and were above expectations.

She had tailored and planned our trip according to our needs and she did the best to arrange the most suitable program and guide. Most importantly, she was able to monitor and response to the changes that we need to have.

Trip-Peru used the best travel company along all the way. Their staff is well trained, reliable and on-time. We especially thank the two good guides: Abraham and Andres, both from CondorTravel at Cusco. They were kind, well qualified, and spoke perfect and clear English. The one day trip in the Sacred Valley guided by Abraham was so joyful, mostly because his gentle personality and excellent guidance.

In summary, our Peru-trip organized by Claudia was extremely nice and successful, we were treated very well, we returned home with good memories of the country, and we actually fell in love with the people and cultures there!

I can only wish that all my future travels can be like the Peru trip, Thanks to the good agents and thanks to Peru!
