Owner description: South Adventure Peru Tours is a family-owned business, created 15 years ago by Ruben & Tatiana. We decided to make use of our experience and knowledge to open our Tour Agency so that we could provide the highest quality tours around South Peru; but there was also an opportunity for us to help many of the young people in Cusco starting their careers and to provide some of the poorer communities around the Cusco Region with revenue to help sustain their livelihoods. We specialise in Extended and Family tours around South Peru. We will take you to the most stunning regions such as Ica Region, Paracas Reserve, Nazca City, Colca Canyon, Lares Valley, Ballestas Island, Lake Titicaca and of course to many of the stunning historical Incan sites such as the famous Machu Picchu, Choquequirao, Sacred Valley and more. Our team visits and thoroughly investigates all destinations, services and amenities featured on our luxury tours to Peru so we can be sure we are offering the best quality, services and price for you. We welcome you to Peru and Cusco and hope that you will embrace our ethos and have a great time while you are here with us.

“Excellent for arranging tours”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I came to Peru in June 2010 on short notice and had little arranged. After wandering around Cuzco looking for a suitable tour operator, I luckily stumbled into Ruben at South Adventure Peru Tours, and he was terrific at booking activities for me. He hooked me up with a Salcantay to Machu Picchu hike and a Sacred Valley bus tour. I don't remember the exact price, but it seemed ridiculously cheap considering how inclusive it was. And Ruben is terrifically personable -- he even greeted me with a hug at the Cuzco train station when I returned from Machu Picchu. A big recommend for South Adventure Peru Tours.

“Perfect service from owner Ruben and team”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

We used the professional and friendly South Adventure Peru Tours in January 2013 for a wide variety of transport and tours. The owner, Ruben, put together our package from landing in Cusco to our our eventual departure from the area and our driver from Lima to Paracas. We got lots of helpful tips as well.

The overall service was always prompt, professional and courteous but extremely warm and friendly.

Our tour was a self-requested package that was competitively priced (and below prices if booking through a UK based travel agent). It consisted of full transport from airport to Cusco, tours in Cusco, tours in the Valle Sagrado (Sacred Valley), drop off at hotel in Sacred Valley, transport to the train to Machu Picchu (to Aguas Calientes), the train journey itself, tour at Machu Picchu and transport from the train back to Cusco and then in the following days to Cusco airport to catch our flight back to Lima. Ruben even organised a private taxi (3.5 hours journey) from Lima aiport to Paracas in the south of Peru. For anything we wished to undertake ourselves we had clear info and help from Ruben and team as well. Ruben and his team met us and escorted us to any tours or other tour companies involved, ensuring all went smoothly. As we are usually independent travelers, we asked for a custom tour. Ruben also prvides many packages to meet your needs.

We emailed Ruben at the address on his website after reading about his company on trip advisor. He was quick to respond, detailed and thorough. We sent our deposit for our touring (roughly 50%) via Western Union and paid the remains on arrival.

Ruben donates 10% of his his takings to communities in Lares Valley who live in extreme poverty. We had amazing service, a great price and contributed to those in need. Thanks to Ruben and team for an amazing time in Peru.
