We had a great time in Peru and really appreciate all the work you and everyone at Machu Travel Peru put in to make sure our vacation was wonderful. The memories will be with us forever. A big THANK YOU to our guides; they were the best!! Please say hi to Ruben, Edward and Esmeralda for us. Their knowledge and enthusiasm made for a fun and educational trip. Ruben's knowledge of the flora and fauna of the jungle was incredible, and I know we saw a lot of things other groups didn't because of his knowledge and willingness to spend a little more time to really make sure we enjoyed things.

Edward was my personal favorite. Again I was amazed by his knowledge of the history and the area. I especially liked the way he related to Conor and Maegan. They both had a great time largely because of the guides. What made the trip really special were the more personal touches like the trip to the village to meet and watch the women weave.

The guides were all fantastic - They were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The drivers also did a phenomenal job. We've organized "private" tours previously, but we've never had a company that gave us such personal attention.

It's wonderful that you take the time to personally meet all of your clients and show them how passionate you are about making their tour a success. Your team shares this enthusiasm as well. We would certainly recommend Machu Travel to others considering travel in Peru. Please extend our thanks to your team - hopefully we will meet again in the future!

It's not the little things Machu travel does that makes a difference, it's everything. From the start of the booking process with the level of information provided and their flexibility, to the final goodbye after touring with each guide, the experience and their service is just exceptional and exceeded all our expectations.

Martha, as Managing Director, has a wonderful team working with her and she sets the standard like her visiting our group with a doctor when two of us were ill and somehow achieving multiple room upgrades for us. It's obvious that Machu Travel is not only popular with those who tour with them but also the properties where Machu Travel guests stay.

The final itinerary suggested, after our input, was just perfect for the amount of activities and leisure time. The guides are all very knowledgeable and pitch the level of information provided perfectly. They are also very friendly, good humored and very caring.

The drivers were all excellent and the properties at which we stayed were comfortable and close to the main attractions or organized to reduce travel stress. Rather than just a generic itinerary, Machu Travel Peru appear to really think about each individual program to make sure each guest has the best possible experience.

They may be somewhat more expensive than some others but you pay for what you get and what you get with Machu Travel Peru is fabulous value for money and a brilliant holiday experience

We are delighted with the trip and will certainly tell others who ask about your company and the individualized assistance Machu Travel offered in crafting the itinerary to our time constraints and interests. I am grateful for the special things we enjoyed because of each of the guides, drivers, and Machu Travel consultants each one of you added something special to our enjoyment of Peru.

I wanted to let you know that we're very pleased about our recent trip to Peru. In any case, all went very smoothly with our trip ....I was particularly impressed by Jhonatan's willingness to come out and get us from Ollantaytambo late one night other than waiting for us to arrive in Cusco. That saved my sleepy head kids and us tired parents an hour of transit so that we could more easily meet our early commitment in the morning for the train...In any case, you can share with these guides, drivers, and other assistants that we had a more restful and enjoyable trip because of their skill and attention than we ever could've had if we'd been responsible for our own transportation and information and arrangement of everything!

I can't imagine traveling internationally without huge amounts of help within the destination country. Thank you for being there and using your expertise, associates' skills, and flexibility to navigate the Web family through our pleasing itinerary. We'll never forget it.

Having just returned from my trip to Peru with Machu Travel, I can wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is interested in a great customized tour operator in Peru. We were impressed with their customer service from the minute we began our email exchanges while working out the itinerary.

We were VERY involved in every location and hotel choice and we asked many, many questions. They never complained and responded quickly to every question. We had certain things in mind and they made some excellent recommendations.

We spent the first four days in the Sacred Valley and we absolutely loved the area. The landscapes are amazing and we loved the special events Machu Travel arranged – a market trip with a local chef in the Sacred Valley followed by him preparing a lunch for us in his restaurant (one of the best meals we had on the entire trip - thanks Yesenia!); and another lunch in the private home of a Peruvian couple which was amazing – both the food and the company. In addition, they took us to a local village which no other tour company visits to see weavers and it was a very moving experience.

All this and I haven't even mentioned Machu Picchu yet! Our private guide, for most of the trip, Esmeralda, was so friendly and helpful and she was chock full of knowledge about everything we were seeing.Esteban, our driver, was always smiling, extremely conscientious and punctual and, most importantly, an excellent driver! We felt like we were traveling with our friends. As far as we are concerned the convenience, comfort and peace-of -mind offered with a private customized tour (with the best hotels!) is priceless. And Machu Travel Peru was by far our best private tour experience to date.

We received 2 phone calls during the trip from Hedder, Machu travel's Director who arranged our trip, just to check in on us and make sure we were enjoying ourselves. He made a point to come to our hotel in Cusco to meet us to talk about our experiences in Peru. We loved her! Hedder Puente is extremely customer-service focused… That is her true goal.

We were very happy to hear that he has expanded their services to the Galapagos and by next year they will be going to Argentina. We were thrilled as we will definitely travel with them again!!
