What Customers Say

  • All of the arrangements worked extremely well.  The extension activities arranged following the Inca Trail and Machu Pichu were just superb: mountain biking, white water rafting down the Apurimac Canyon, the Andean Explorer train journey from Cusco to Puno, and the 2-day trip to the islands of Lake Titicaca were all fantastic experiences, and incredibly enjoyable.  I had the time of my life every single day I was in Peru.  The hotel in Puno was very good, and all the hotel taxi transfers in Cusco and Puno arrived on schedule.  As a person who really appreciates knowing the details of any plan, it was greatly reassuring to see in advance the detailed timetable of all the activities down to the time of hotel transfers in Cusco and Puno, and then it all happened exactly as scheduled.  Wonderfully well organised - well done! So thanks for such a wonderful experience, I have been recommending Amazonas Explorer to anybody thinking of visiting Peru for adventure activities.

  • As you could tell by the pictures - I still have more to post - it was a memorable trip. We loved Peru and it was so different from any other country I've visited. It has unique culture and the scenery is jaw-droppingly beautiful. Plus, the history - man - the Inca were busy little buggers. It's amazing to wonder what kind of structures still remain uncovered. At Machu Picchu, Gonzalo (guide) pointed out a massive aqueduct across the valley/river from the site. It had just been discovered in the last nine months. Crazy. He told us they estimate less than 50% of Machu Picchu has been exposed and just a bit more than 20% of Choquequirao has been identified.   Speaking of Gonzalo, he was great. If I were you, I wouldn't hesitate to request him to guide future guests you send to Peru. He's warm, upbeat, enthusiastic and funny and he knows his stuff. Plus he is so proud of his country and his heritage. Having a private guide and vehicle really enhanced our experience.
