See What Our Past Traveler's Have to Say


  • The team that looked after us was very special. Signor Domingo who led the muleteers was fantastic. Edwar is a genuine man and a great guide.

  • Cristo was excellent. Very knowledgeable and easy pace with lots of detail- a first class guide. The kids enjoyed the chocolate museum and Machu Picchu. The climb of Waynapicchu is a highlight and the salt ponds were great. Ollantaytambo was also lovely. The bike ride was ok but it didn´t really lead anywhere to see anything, so could be improved or replaced.

    Family trip
  • I cannot say enough good things about Amazonas Explorer and our passionate tour guide, Cristo, the diligent porters, and all the people working in the background on the Amazonas Explorer team. My husband and I did the 5-day Machu Pichu hike this past September. AE is professional, organized, ethical, and made this experience one I will never forget. The porters were amazing, the food was delicious and we even had plenty of snacks supplied by AE. Cristo shared so much knowledge, that the few months since being back I've been reading more books about the history of Peru. He was so insightful and really put his heart into the tour. I really enjoyed visiting the Inca sites leading up to Machu Pichu and a few of our stops in the Sacred Valley. I also want to thank Andrea, who was our main contact with organizing the trip. We had planned to trek in May of 2020, but we all know the world had different plans. After postponing a few times, we were finally able to book for September of 2021. She was punctual, efficient, and organized. I know she did not have an easy job that year and I really appreciate her hard work. Seriously, book with this group! Amazonas Explorers, thank you for a trip we will never forget.

  • Jimmie was our guide. I felt he was very knowledgeable and especially appreciated his expertise in negotiating his expertise in negotiating the river and rapids. I felt very safe. He was very patient and encouraging on the Inca Trail. He left me with an appreciation for the Peruvian culture and I learned much about the history. Great guide. Also very personable.

  • My daughters,  my grandchildren,  and I took a private tour with Amazonas Explorer from July 19 to the 26th, 2019. The tour exceeded my expectations.  The guide, the drivers, the cooks were polite, knowledgeable,  and friendly.  They made us feel safe, comfortable and pampered.
    Every day was filled with excitement,  wonder, and overall fun. José,  our unforgettable guide, made sure of that. We toured Cuzco, Sacsayhuaman,  Tambo Machay, the Inca Temple of the Moon, the concentric circle terraces in Moray, the salt pans of Maras breathtaking Machu Pichu,  and Lake Titicaca. Our guide and driver in Puno were also top-notch. We were very happy with our hotels, food, and transportation. I can't say enough about the service provided by Amazonas Explorer.
    If you would like to tour Peru, we highly recommend Amazonas Explorer.
    Thank you for making my dream vacation a reality.

  • Our guide Juan Carlos Salazar is a wonderful man. We connected well, he was very polite, personable, extremely helpful and attentive to our needs. Pedro the chef was fantastic and the other meals were all tasty and healthy. All equipment was in good shape and well functioning and the complimentary water bottle was a nice treat- a quality and unique bottle. We loved the quiet hikes with very few people around, the views were spectacular, the crew was great, the km104 Inca Trail approach to Macchu Picchu was very special and the Lares thermal baths were so relaxing. It was a wonderful life experience, I will remember it for always.
