My experience with Reponsable has just been fantastic.

I find personalizing one´s trip an exciting way to explore not only Peru, but also other countries.
I first had a WhatsApp call with Alejandro to explain him my destination, trip duration and especially, what are my interest points. After that, Alejandro returned me with his great insight and feedback, introducing me the routes & possibilities that I´d never thought or read that Cusco & Titicaca would offer me.
- The guide that they offered me was amazing! Not only knowledgeable, but also very caring and good photographer (for a sole traveler, this is essential)! You can notice that, when they are well paid, they are more willing to perfect their job
- Surprisingly, I did my first mountain bike in my life in Ollantaytambo
- I did a llama trek solely, basically walked up to a hill in companion with apx 15 llamas, with 2 natives and had a quite picnic
- I spent the whole Christmas with Titicaca´s natives and I even explored villages and regions in which seemingly I was the only foreigner during that period

The whole wasn´t cheap, but certainly every penny was worthy taking into considerations that all the brand new experience that I had and all the unbelievable stuff I did.

Responsible Travel Peru has put together a one-month, tailor-made trip for us. After we had already paid a deposit, we had to cancel the trip for family reasons. Responsive Travel Peru was very helpful and reimbursed the contractually agreed amount without hesitation. Unfortunately we could not start the trip. The preparation and Pauline's consulting was excellent and I would at any time book again with Responsible Travel Peru.

small inca trail from Santa Maria to Alejandro's coffee house and next day walk from Santa Teresa to Aguas Calientes, along the railway. Very good job from our guide Eloy: safety walk, super good information, no hurry. Due to warm temperatures he always gave us time for rest and taking photos. Good explanation for every question from us. He always gave us time for ourselves. The Machu Picchu tour with him was very good , due to perfect information from him. Also thanks to Elena , who organised our unforgetable journey to Peru.

We spent almost 10 days with this excellent team in Peru and Bolivia. The whole tour was absolutely perfect! Organization, guides, support, hotels selection, local families etc etc. Resp travel agency is definitely one of the best organizations we have travelled with so far. I really wish there is more such professionals in this area in other countries!
thank you again and wish you many satisfied clients

The main aim of my trip was to practice Spanish in various homestays to gain an insight into Peruvian culture, and that is exactly what I got! I was so impressed with how smoothly everything went, and how my personal travel advisor, Pauline, was able to organize such a unique experience.

That I could message Pauline, Rosbert or their colleagues on Whatsapp was especially useful during transfers if taxis did not turn up on time, and gave me reassurance that if anything did go wrong I could always get help. I also wanted to mention the taxi drivers (I don’t know their names!) that picked me up in Lima when I first arrived, and the taxi driver that dropped me off in my final days in Lima, because they were extremely welcoming and talkative which put me at ease as soon as I arrived. It makes such a difference having good taxi drivers because they were often a friendly reassurance when I first arrived anywhere, as well as an extra chance to practice more Spanish.

The tips Respons gave me of things to do when I had free time really helped with structuring my days. The Colca Canyon was one of the best weekends I’ve had. Both these families in Sibayo and Coporaque were so friendly and welcoming, and I would love to return to see them again and explore more of the Canyon another time! I also really enjoyed the Salkantay Trek, making good friends, enjoying the delicious meals, and exploring the beautiful landscapes, with the reassurance of being able to use the back-up van when I injured my knee. It’s so good to know that the company acts as a mini-NGO providing support, training and guidance for local communities and training female porters.

I also enjoyed the Albergue Pankotsi experience in Manu. I particularly enjoyed getting to know Jesús and Walter, and Juan Carlos was also so kind and helpful and everyone did such a good job at giving me a memorable and enjoyable experience! I especially enjoyed the jewellery-making workshop with the kind owner’s wife and daughters (I feel awful to have forgotten their names!) and it was good to meet women from the community.

I loved all the hotels I stayed in, and Ninos Hotel in Cusco was especially good to have as a luxury break from the rest of the homestays and treks. I didn’t realize their restaurant runs from 6am-10pm until I got there, which was even more of an extra.

It is so great to know that my trip has contributed to sustainable tourism, benefitting Peruvians as much as possible, rather than a big package-deal international company. Overall, my trip was a fantastic experience and I’ve come back home with a love of Peru and definitely wanting to return again to re-visit some of the same places and explore more of the north as well!
