“We had an excellent trip! We were taken very good care of from start to finish. We really enjoyed our guided tours in Lima, Cusco, and the Sacred Valley, and obviously the most memorable part was our 4 day hike along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. The hotel in Aguas Calientes was such a nice treat after camping for 3 nights. We were really happy that we chose the 10 day itinerary with an added day to return to Machu Picchu and relax in Aguas Calientes after the hike. We loved Peru and would definitely recommend using Highland Adventures! Many thanks for all of your help.”

“This was one of my most memorable trips. The highs were very high, and I will never forget Machu Picchu. The guide on the last day who took me to the Larco Museum in Lima was extremely knowledgeable about Peruvian ancient culture. He made my last day a true pleasure and the snack in the historical tavern was a great wrap-up to the whole experience.”

“My family and I wish to send along a note of appreciation for the wonderful tour Highland Adventures arranged for us in Peru. It could not have been better, especially because of our wonderful guides Alberto in Lima, German Ara in Cusco, and all others; the lovely hotels … in all, perfection, plus the amazing scenery, history and people. Thank you again for an unforgettable experience!”

Ayumi Fujino (Japan)

“Thanks for our amazing trip to Peru! My 14 year old and I had a great time and were extremely impressed with the professionalism and preparedness of the guides and porters. It is very enjoyable and comforting to travel abroad and not need to be concerned with a all the details. The tour guides were on top of all the arrangements, informative and entertaining. The highlight for us was 4 days of hiking and camping the Inka Trail and then arriving to Machu Picchu on day four. What an incredibly beautiful and magical place! An added bonus was the delicious Peruvian cuisine prepared by the chef. These were no ordinary camping meals! I’m looking forward to my other 2 kids getting a bit older so I can share this outstanding trip with them also. Thanks for everything!”

Chuck Downs

“We had a terrific trip!  Transportation was always on time and really well organized.  The hotels very good, particularly the El Mapi Inka Terra in Aguas Calientes.”

Jorge Lopez

“Overwhelmingly positive experience with Highland Adventures. Peru’s ancient sites, living traditions and the respectful manner of its people blew us away!”

Annalize Heyns

“A friend and I booked a 10-day Peru tour with Highland Adventures. We liked the way we could add an extra day and customize our itinerary to adjust to our flights.  The trip itself was fantastic. The support team in Peru were prompt, friendly and efficient. The guides were always friendly and knowledgeable. The vans were newer and drivers very safe. Our tours were never more than a dozen people, and several times it was just the two of us. The hotels were all comfortable, and the folks at the front desk always made sure that we were set for the following day. The hotel stay near Machu Picchu was especially nice. We climbed Huayna Picchu the second day; we were really pleased that these tickets had been part of the package and that we had been able to spend two days at the site. The rainforest visit to Posada Amazonas was a great way to experience the jungle, and our guide there was also a gem. It was a well thought out itinerary, and what I really enjoyed was not having to schlep around with the same tour group the whole trip. We met many interesting people from all over the world, and felt independent, yet Highland Adventures had taken care of the details. The price was very reasonable, and the quality of everything that we did was consistent. I highly recommend Highland Adventures for your travel plans.”

Heidi Webster

“What an amazing time we experienced. So many details that were necessary to make this trip successful and boy was it successful. We felt wonderfully taken care of with every aspect of the trip. I would recommend this to anyone. I am very grateful that we were fortunate to connect with Highland Adventures. We were blessed!”

Colleen DeVine

Thank you for all of your help in organizing my wonderful trip! The trip was amazing from beginning to end. I loved the fact that everything was taken care of for me (pickup at airports, hotel reservations, etc). All of the staff were friendly and helpful. I am very happy that I chose the Salkantay Trek, as this ended up being a once in a lifetime experience. My time in Lima and Cusco was amazing, but the trek to Machu Picchu was very special and memorable. All in all, this was a perfectly organized trip with no short comings to speak of. Kudos to you and your team for organizing such an amazing vacation
