We took 21 people to Peru...Cusco and Machu Picchu and 2 were in specialized wheelchairs. The folks at AP thought of everything and made the trip as amazing as their name. With this size and the special needs of the entire group, not everything could be thought of in advance and they were more than willing to work with us to problem solve at every level. Not that we would ever recommend this, our group carried both wheelchairs up the one day excursion to the Inca Trail. With the help of the staff and some really strong men, we made it safely to the welcoming Sanctuary Lodge. The sites, travel, guides, hotels, food, trains...everything was incredible. We changed lives on that trip and these folks made it possible.

My wife and I recently utilized Amazing Peru to coordinate our independent travel to Bolivia and Peru in June, 2012. This was our second trip with them--our first being to Argentina and Brazil in 2009. We have only positive things to say about our experiences. The first trip (Argentina/Brazil) included multiple in country flights, connections, guides, and hotels--in each case the coordination between all these elements was flawless. Amazing Peru did a great job listening to us initially, providing recommendations, and making the arrangements--it was a perfect honeymoon.

Peru and Bolivia went the same way. But in this case, we had to account for 3 additional people coming from 2 different countries and putting the whole thing together. Amazing Peru did a wonderful job balancing our schedules and meeting the needs of the three parties involved. It was another great trip that included excellent guides, timely transportation and transfers, and modest 3-Star accommodations that were all really good. A couple of glitches occurred that were completely our of their or our control--municipal strikes for example (to be expected at times in those countries by the way so be warned), but nothing else went awry and it was a great two weeks. If we required any changes, Amazing Peru or the people they utilized to provide services were right on top of it.

We will be going back to South America for a third trip one day and when we do, we will contact Amazing Peru.

My wife and I planned to go to South America for our 30th anniversary. We decided to go in May of 2012. We looked into a number of tour companies and a range of price options. Friends of ours told us about Amazing Peru, and the great experience they had booking with the company. We contacted them first via email with a proposed itinerary. They were prompt in responding to our inquiries. We dealt with Jim Turner. After several emails and numerous phone calls to Jim, we decided that their itinerary was the one that suited us the best. They may not have been the cheapest, but they successfully met our criteria for the hotels we wanted and the tours we wanted and many other small details that made the planning on our part, simple. As promised, when we arrived in Lima, a driver was there to pick us up and take us to our hotel. That level of service continued throughout our 18 day stay. The guides and drivers they used were top notch. Many of our tours were small group, as we expected, but where it really counted ( Machu Picchu) we had a private guide. Jaime Vasquez met us in the morning in Cusco and was with us the entire day. His knowledge of the area was amaziing. We had a couple of questions during the trip and Jim was quick to respond every time. Again in Quito, Ecuador, our private guide went out of his way to make our day tour special. I cannot think of a situation where we felt uncomfortable all due to the detailed planning by Amazing Peru. We intend to return to Peru and would not hesitate to use Amazing Peru again or recommend their services to our friends.

We had a fantastic trip and Amazing Peru really does live up to its name. We are not as young as many of the travellers around and it was great to have everything organised for us. We came to rely on there always being somebody at the airport, station or hotel to meet us or pick us up. The accommodation at all the hotels was great even though we had only booked 3 star. We were really impressed by the itinerary. There was enough free time that we did not feel rushed from place to place. We would thoroughly recommend Amazing Peru to anybody who is considering a tour to Peru.

Stephen helped us organize a 2.5 week trip to Peru for a group of 6 people (three couples), everything was perfect! The hotels, guides, drivers and travel arrangements were excellent! Our trip was based on Amazing Peru trip No. 7 with some requested changes. With the exception of some altitude sickness the entire trip was awesome! I would highly recommend booking through Stephen at Amazing Peru!
Thanks for all your help creating this custom private tour of Peru!!!
