Let's try this again...

I'm guessing my original post was deemed inappropriate as it was considered as promoting a company?

I would like to know if anyone has done any tours with any of the following companies. I would like to know if they are reputable agencies - I do not work for these agencies and am not trying to promote them.

The agencies are, Loreto Tours, Lorenzo Expeditions and Peruvian Highland Treks.

Thanks in advance.

Ok - maybe i got confused. I saw a message saying the post had been deleted, maybe it was a reply that had been deleted.

If there are any moderators reading this then please delete this thread so there is just the one thread - thanks.

I would think a travel agent in your home town could advise you on someone/a company reputable in cusco.

we used cmt horizons in lima and cusco and would not use them again. we based the choice on a recommendation from someone living in lima.

I think choosing based on forum advice can be risky

Actually, I doubt most travel agents in small cities in England (or the US, for that matter) would have much solid knowledge of reputable companies in Cusco.

I have found Trip Advisor and other online travel forums like Frommer's, Fodor's, igougo, virtual tourist, etc. to be extremely valuable for trip planning. Of course, you should read many trip reports to gain an overall understanding of tourist's experience with these companies, and take it all "with a grain of salt." As many others have reported on this forum, there are always some fake postings touting one company or another, probably written by an employee posing as a tourist.

Caveat Emptor.
