All I can say is, our trip was just about as close to perfect as it could possibly be. All of the arrangements you made for us for hotels and activities were excellent. Johana, our guide in Lima, and Valentin, our guide for Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu, were both exceptional and amazing – they were both very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly, and their English is very good. Fabrizio, our guide for Arequipa and Colca Canyon, was also very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly.
The trip was absolutely fabulous – we particularly loved Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu, but we also thoroughly enjoyed Lima, Arequipa, Colca Canyon, and Hacienda de Ficus – wonderful things to see and great guides to show them to us. And the weather could not have been more perfect – great time to be in Peru, even with the World Bank and IMF there, which I am sure kept you all very busy. And thank you so much for the lovely dinner we had at Calle del Medio – we also had delicious meals at Gastón Acurio’s restaurants in Lima (Tanta in Miraflores) and Arequipa (Chicha). Great food, everywhere we went.
And, not to be forgotten, all of our drivers were great, amazing in fact, very skilled – Alberto in Lima at the beginning, Mr. Élard in Arequipa and Colca Canyon, Abel in Cusco and the Sacred Valley (and back to Cusco), and Ubaldo in Lima at the end. Riding with them was quite an adventure, and we trusted them completely.
The service provided by Latin Discoveries was beyond excellent, you did an absolutely terrific job putting the whole trip together, and I do wish I could have met you.

It was great to have Latin Discoveries plan our family travel to Peru. The email correspondence was timely and they try to tailor your itinerary to what you need. While in Peru, we felt taken care of by their staff.
We were in our own group with private transport and our own tour guide. My kids were 12 and 14 and they fully enjoyed the tour guide's explanation of all the different ruins.
Our favorite day was the day at Machu Picchu where we learned so much about the Inca civilization. We had a wonderful time and we would highly recommend Latin Discoveries' service!

Latin Discoveries was very helpful, as much prior to departure as during our stay in Peru. We were constantly in touch with the team and always got efficient replies within the next hours. Any questions and requests we had were very well managed and in a very professional manner.
I remember having to ask about tips in Peru as I wasn’t sure what to give to our city guides, and Latin Discoveries was able to get back really fast in order for me to always feel comfortable during my stay !
We really appreciated that our tours were with native guides, that have excellent knowledge of their culture and city. The drivers were also always friendly, with a big smile, even after many hours driving!
I would definitely recommend Latin Discoveries to my friends and family. Everything was very well organized during the whole 3-week tour, and the guides spoke very good English!
