  • Chino was so amazing. By the end of the trek we felt that we had made a great friend, he was so kind, intelligent, and polite and was just great with our teenage children. We went 9km and told Chino we wanted to go really fast to challenge ourselves. We made the trek in about 3 hours instead of 5. We were very happy. The difficult initial ascent from km104 was a very vigorous trek which we loved. The ruins of Winay Wayna were magical and the amazing flowers, ferns, moss, and vines were the best. I loved it all except the scary bus ride down from Machu Picchu to the train station. Next time I will trek down.

  • I would give them more stars if I could. We did 2 adventures with them. The 1st was the mountain e-bike tour of Cusco. We mountain bike at home all the time but never riden an e-bike. This seemed like a great opportunity to try it out. Our guide, Juan Carlo, was awesome! He took us on some beautiful trails where we had amazing views of the city. He was very in tune with our skill level and considerate of our needs. Now I’m searching for an e-bike at home to buy!!!!! The 2nd tour we did was the one-day whitewater rafting trip on the Apurimac River. The road just to get there was an adventure in itself. The river is in a gorgeous canyon. Our guide, Victor, made us feel totally secure and safe. We also had a safety person in a kayak accompany us. They prepared a wonderful breakfast on the drive there, then a lunch that way exceeded our expectations halfway through the river. We even pulled over in our raft to check out a beautiful waterfall. All of their personal and safety equipment was in top condition, which reflects their ability to treat clients with care and respect. I highly recommend Amazonas Explorer! They offer several adventures and we’ll definitely book more with them next time we visit Peru.

  • Carlos was awesome, very helpful, knowledgeable, informative, friendly, good company. He was thoughtful about our needs and when feeling some illness he had helpful suggestions and was very professional. We felt well taken care of and highly recommend him as a guide. Pedro was an incredible cook and the meals on the trek were awesome. Food/ meals at restaurants were also great, snacks were just right and a good supply of water. We had a great size tent, sleeping bags of perfect warmth, Thermarest great, baño, and shelter great and loved the water bottles we were given. Highlights included the trekking for sure, the way Carlos introduced us to Machu Picchu when we reached the sun gate, and the shared enjoyment of flora and fauna along the way. Awesome experience of completing a trek I've wanted to do for a long time and spending it with my son and such a wonderful team that felt so unified

  • Dear Carol and everyone, My husband and I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent trip to Peru! We had a fantastic trip! You guys did such a great job of organizing everything for us, from the transfers/pick-ups/drop-offs at our various locations, to the amazing guides, the itinerary, the hikes, the picnic lunches, hotels, etc. We felt very well taken care of and at the same time got a wonderful taste of the beauty and culture of Peru. We were able to comment on our guide Ruben "Chino" for the Machu Picchu portion of our trip in the feedback questionnaire we returned to you. We also wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much we enjoyed our time with Omar Quintana on the Arequipa/Colca portion of our trip. Omar was extremely knowledgeable and adept at providing us with insights into pre-Incan, Incan, and Spanish cultural influences on modern-day Peru. He was also a fantastic natural guide, pointing out many birds and other wildlife, such as Vicuna. He took us on a really great hike while we were in Colca Valley. He was very professional, but at the same time friendly and sociable. He instilled a feeling of complete confidence in his leadership of our travels. We also were very happy with our driver for this part of the trip, Pablo. We thought all of the hotels were good. Our favorite of the trip was Colca Lodge. The hotel at Ollantaytambo (Pakaritampu) seemed really beautiful and the town would have been fun to explore, but we arrived there at almost dinner time the day before our Inca trail hike to Machu Picchu so did not really have time to explore/enjoy the hotel and town. I think we mentioned in our feedback form that we probably would have preferred skipping the Salinaras (although we know other people really enjoyed this) and having a little more time in Ollantaytambo. Our hotel in Algas Calientes (El Mapi) and the Quinta San Blas hotel in Cusco, were quite nice also. Our least favorite hotel was La Hosteria in Arequipa. While the location was great, our room the first night had a leak. They switched us to another room the second night which was better. But the quality of the hotel and the breakfast was not as good as our other hotels. Overall, we are very grateful for an excellent experience and trip and would highly recommend Amazonas Explorers to anyone planning a trip to Peru!! Thank you so much!! Gail and Rick

  • We would never have been able to organise this trip without a guide. Everything went smoothly and we had a great time. Everyone was very nice and worked very hard. Food was all very good but there was more than we needed. Everyone on the trek did a great job and we really appreciate their hard work. Jose was great. He was always on time and was very organised. He is also very knowledgeable and pleasant. He was very attentive to how everyone in the group was doing and we really enjoyed getting to know him. We knew the trekking was going to be difficult and it was. Jose did a good job letting us know what to expect and making sure everyone made it. The Inca trail was amazing and the best part was arriving to Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate. We have no complaints. We were especially impressed with how the trek was organised so we were able to avoid other tourists on visiting all the sites at non-peak times.

  • Before any more time passes, I want to tell you all how much we appreciated all of your help in making our trip to Peru truly memorable.
    From our airport pick-up and initial Cusco orientation by Chino to our final transfer with Daniel, every anxiety we had was met and alleviated by your responsiveness.
    Chino and Nati, we couldn't have had guides we enjoyed more; we felt in very capable hands, and you did a superb job "herding the 13 cats" that made up our group.
    It felt like the group really formed into a team, and I give you all credit for creating and supporting an environment where that can happen.
    We also appreciated the atmosphere of equality and respect that extended to all of our trekking support staff, and please once again extend our appreciation to all of them.
    We will definitely tell friends about  Amazonas Explorer when planning their trip to Peru.
