“Mountain Biking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Ruben and his wife were extremely friendly. We book a mountain biking tour and much to our surprise our guide was a world champion mountain biker, Yuri. Yuri was a great guide. He and my husband, who had mountain bike experience, had a lot of fun. While still making it fun for my husband, was able to keep an eye on me and made sure I was comfortable, since it was my first time mountain biking. We stopped at various intervals for water/snacks and photos.

We also booked a city tour with South Adventure Peru Tours. Ruben arranged for all of our tickets for the sites to be purchased for us at no additional cost. This was convenient so we didn't have to walk to the tourist office and purchase them ourselves. Our guide was a local Quechuan, and was extremely knowledgeable. The cathedral was extremely interesting and I only wish we would have had more time to explore it, but since we had 4 more sites to see it was not possible.

Also, 10% of the proceeds goes towards a charity South Adventure Peru Tours began supporting the mountain community of Lares, where Ruben is from.

Ruben also gave us a ride to the airport our last day free of charge since he and his wife were going to be running errands!

We highly recommend South Adven. Peru Tours. Ruben and his wife are kind people and make an effort to give back to their local community.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Thanks to Ruben and his family we had really nice time: in Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, with no worries about anything. Well organized., already very helpful before coming to Peru. They are very reliable, listen to the clients (as we needed some changes, they always ask what we want and prefer).
Thanks a lot!!:-))

“Excellent! Highly recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Ruben and his wife Tatiana are both excellent. First of all, they were very prompt and informative in their emails prior to booking with them, which is the main reason I booked with them on top of their excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. I only paid our 200 deposit per person and had booked multiple trips with them on top of the Inca Trail. When we arrived in Cusco, we went to their office, everything was already organized and they were able to make last minute adjustments for us to book additional tours. All of the tour guides they selected were excellent and knowledgable and very proud of their Incan roots. His company picked us up whenever we needed rides and it was evident that the truly cared for us to have a wonderful safe vacation. He and his wife and his company are the best! Book with them with confidence!!!

“Excellent Personal Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

We looked for private tours in Cusco (3 people, 4 days) and contacted few agencies including South Adventure Peru Tours. The immediate response from Ruben, with detailed follow ups, convinced me to bet on him... and it was the right decision.
Ruben organized everything in few days, accepted us like family and cared about every element of our stay. We went to Machu Picchu (climbed Huayna Picchu... a great experience!), Sacred Valley and more, everything went well as promised, with an excellent guide - Victor.
I would certainly recommend Ruben and his agency as a reliable and pleasant host in Cusco.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Ruben's agency was very helpful planning our visit to Peru earlier this year. He responded promptly to all our emails and Skype communications, addressing our concerns. Once we got there, Ruben, his family and associates delivered excellent service, making sure all of us were enjoying the trip. Everything went as planned.
Lima, Cusco, Valle Sagrado, MachuPicchu what a beautiful country, the mountains, the history, the people, the delicious food. We want to go back !!
The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Always ready to take us to our daily adventures. We recommend Ruben and his group highly.
