  • To visit Machu Picchu is to enter into a different dimension, in which the ancient Andean world view unfolds before your eyes like magic.
  • The Sacred Valley of the Incas is a place where you can enjoy the landscape and learn about the fascinating customs of the indigenous people!
  • Did you know that Lake Titicaca is the world’s highest commercially-navigable lake?
  • I know we're biased, but we think Peruvian cuisine is one of the best in the world! You won't be disappointed by what's on offer when you visit.

    Best parts:
    To visit Machu Picchu has been on my bucket list for some time. The Inca tribe as for some time been a major interest - this trip fulfilled both of these interests
    Worst parts:
    The Machu Picchu hike was the highlight of the tour as I have explained. When we arrived in Cusco we were greeted at the airport by Mario who gave us the info on our stay in Cusco and that at 7pm on that evening we were to briefed on the Royal Inca hike. No one from the agency deemed that briefing necessary. I had previously ascertained that we were to carry sufficient clothing and personal items for three days. this we did but without the benefit of the briefing AND WITH EXTEME BAD PLANNING ON THE PART OF PERUVIAN SUNRISE we were carrying 10KG on our backs the day we left for the trail. The itinerary states that we were to be picked up from the hotel at 06.45 but the agent James ( guiding in Ollantaytambo) called the agency on or behalf and informed us that the pick up was to be at 6.20 as a 6.45 pick up would see us miss the train to Machu Picchu. At 6.20 there was no evidence of a driver so I called the only number I had been given for emergency issues but that did not answer. At 6.40 a non-english speaking driver arrived and drove to the station - without one word either in English or Spanish being exchanged handed us two envelopes of documents and three bags of food for the hike - we were carrying the food for the guide as well- handed us his phone and the person on the other end of the phone spoke in Spanish which we did not understand - it transpired that he was talking English. At this point we did not even know when to alight the train. The bad planning referred is with all of the issue explained we were to be carrying all of our personal items for the entire trek where all the other trekkers had their personal items delivered to their hotels in Aguas Calientes The climb is at altitude and in rather hot conditions and we were carrying 10KG backpack and a food pack - also weighing significantly _ water, fruit etc. THIS PROVED TO BE A VERY DIFFICULT CLIMB AD A RESULT OF THE PLANNING/BRIEFING ISSUE AND SIGNIFICANTLY ERODED THE EXPERIENCE. There were three further errors /omissions on the itinerary regarding food inclusion/exclusion and timings but in comparison are less important. TH room allocated at P*** hotel was one of my worst experiences of hotel accommodation. It was possible to hear all bathroom activities and conversations from the adjacent room, briefings being held in reception were clearly audible in the room which also afforded great acoustics of a pack of local dogs chasing every passing car. Having complained to the guide we were given an excellent room - a move which was claimed as a customer service gesture instigated by Jannik? In Cusco a lunch was offered by way of apology in a restaurant which was being painted at the time of the lunch I had major issues with the lack of understanding with the local agent on specific flight issues regarding frequent flyer benefits i.e; airmiles and priority boarding. Prior to departure I asked Jannik to include our frequent flyer details on the flights so we could have priority boarding and receive the allocated miles; I was categorically informed that this was NOT possible. Some omnipotent power - ' the office' said that this was nor available. I confirmed with the carrier LATAM that we could avail these benefits with the simple inclusion of the frequent flyer numbers on the bookings. 'The office' had apparently informed the agent that I was wrong ( along with LATAM!) and at this time we would be denied these benefits. Suffice to say that at the check in on the first flight the agent from LATAM added the FF numbers and we were allocated priority seating and boarding and given the miles. I asked that the checking in process be left to me so that we could repeat the access to these benefits but ' the office'on both further occasions did the check ins - now insisting that frequent flyer details were added but on arrival at check-in we were told that the details were in fact missing - I had them added and have been credited the mikes and were given priority boarding
    Summary:
    Trip was ruined by the debacle we experienced on the Royal Inca trail

We deeply regret that your trip was affected by the incidents. The failed briefing for the Inca Trail unfortunately had a chain effect on all other events, which could not be solved afterwards. We know that we can not undo the experience, but we are pleased that you have accepted the refund offered. Unfortunately your first night at the hotel on Lake Titicaca was affected by noise and we are pleased that the room change we have made helped and you could have a relaxed second night in a very nice room. We will take the happened events very seriously to further improve our services, we wish you all the best for the future and we are always at your disposal. Best regards, JannikSee more

    Excellent holiday. We commented that everyday we were there there was something wonderful and exciting. All the guides were excellent, especially Dina who travelled with us from Arequipa to Colca Canyon.....the differences between lamas, alpaca and vicuña will stay with us forever !!! Benja, who did the Inca trail with us was also amazing. A big thank you too to Diego who was so supportive and helpful when our daughter was unwell :)) Our family vote this one of the best holidays we have ever had. Thank you so so much.
    Worst parts:
    Leaving Peru. The long coach journeys were tough at times as we are prone to travel sickness but these were made easier by the regular stops......there is nothing that Evaneos could have done to help with this! Finding bottled water at a reasonable price! It would be helpful if at each new destination, especially when you get off a flight, a bottle of water could be provided. When we travelled with Evaneos in India this was done and was much appreciated. It would even be fine to have a large bottle that everyone could top up their own from. Getting breakfast with early starts....some hotels are great and will give you a sandwich and piece of fruit and a drink....others, particularly the one in Agua Calientes were difficult.....not ideal when getting up at 3 .30 to stand in the bus queue.
    Summary:
    Lima--> Arequipa--> Colca Canyon--> Puno--> Cusco--> Agua Calientes--> Puerto Maldonado Arequipa....simply delightful........monastery was unexpected and wonderful The mountains and volcanoes....just...Lima--> Arequipa--> Colca Canyon--> Puno--> Cusco--> Agua Calientes--> Puerto Maldonado Arequipa....simply delightful........monastery was unexpected and wonderful The mountains and volcanoes....just amazing...even the altitude! Colca Canyon.....condors...one of life's perfect moments Cusco....delightful city and so much to do. We could happily live there. Short Inca trail and Machupicchu....even better than I had imagined and we had high expectations. Puerto !Maldonado.......we are in love with the jungle.... Please don't let tour companies spoil it by turning the field stations into luxury hotels.See more
