Testimonials

We take great pride in taking care of our guests and their tailormade travel plans in Peru, Bolivia and the Galapagos. Our travellers are our best advocates, and they frequently recommend our specialist travel services to friends, colleagues and family when planning a trip to our region.

Along with sharing their thoughts on tripadvisor forums, such as this one here, and on social media, such as Aracari facebook reviews here, here’s what more of them have had to say in their honest testimonials on travelling with Aracari:

Mark Green put together an amazing trip for our family of eleven, cruise on the Natural Paradise touring the Galapagos Islands, travel to Cusco and Hiram Bingham train to Machu Picchu. Everything ran smoothly, beautiful accommodations and knowledgeable guides. He quickly responded to any questions we had. I’m so glad we chose Aracari.

Thank you for making such memorable plans. It was a great adventure! Daniela was a wonderful tour guide along with the gentlemen at the museum. We couldn’t ask for anything more. I would recommend your company, whenever any of my friends travel to Peru.

I want to let you know that we had a wonderful time in Peru. Hard to imagine, but our experience exceeded expectations.  Everything went completely smoothly. One hotel was more interesting than the next and we loved your restaurant suggestions. We also appreciated your making sure we always had an excellent table with the best views.

I have already recommended you to two separate sets of friends who are considering trips to Peru.

Thanks again for helping us plan a memorable vacation.

We had a great trip. Very enjoyable. Of course Machu Picchu was the highlight. That was terrific and a great adventure. Hotels were all excellent. Well chosen!

Thanks again for all your excellent planning. I appreciated how organized things were at all times.

Thank you so much for making this vacation extra special for our family. We truly enjoyed it. We are especially thankful for moving our itinerary to help us resolve our issue and providing such great service. Everyone was exceptional!!

Our Peru experience far exceeded our expectations:- the beauty of the country; the people and their lovely hospitality and balanced approach to life; the tremendous food; the comfort and ease of traveling (made that much better by your superb planning, guides, and drivers).

For me, apart from the food, the highlights were traveling on the Hiram Bingham train to Machu Picchu; and our late afternoon experience at Machu Picchu with guide Juan, made that much more special by the fact that most tourists had left by the time we started out, and the gorgeous light of late afternoon combined with a beautiful rainbow.

I think the itinerary you laid out for us was perfect. It kept us moving at a good pace; gave us a chance to acclimate; and gave us a good sense of Peru without being overwhelmed.

Just getting back to normal and wanted to let you know that the trip was fantastic. The guides, the hotels etc were great. Every one of them added to our experience and made Peru alive and exciting for us. there was always someone to meet us when they were supposed to and the emergency cell phone and boarding passes always there for us was a great touch on your part. All the activities that were planned lived up to or exceded our expectations.

- Martin Slater, June 2017

Everything was excellently arranged, our overall experience was excellent, and I would not hesitate to recommend Aracari to others thinking of visiting Peru. We would particularly like to single out Juan, our guide in Cusco/Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu for whom nothing was too much trouble.
Thank you once again to you and your team.

- Xavier Villers, August 2017

Everything went swimmingly. No glitches. Unless you count wishing we’d had more time to spend in Peru.

The hotels were lovely, the train ride spectacular, and Machu Picchu a true wonder. We were impressed by both our drivers’ skills and our guides’ knowledge.

Thank you for your hep in making our trip to Peru a purely seamless pleasure.

My husband and I, and our 3 boys (age 7,10,10) have just returned from an incredible adventure in Peru, created by Mark Green at Aracari. From the first email and to our very last day (when we tried to extend our trip by several more days) Mark tirelessly answered every question, returned every call and took care of every piece of our itinerary. Speaking of which, our incredible itinerary was so tailor made and specifically ideal for our young children’s interests and abilities. Each of our guides in all of our distinct parts of our trip were perfect! Our food tour guide in Lima, Ronald was so knowledgable and patient! And our driver, Laureano, was incredible, always there waiting for us (even after a 4 hour train delay) and safely carrying us to our next destination! Our guide, Carlos, who we spent the majority of our time with felt like a family member by the time we left. He is truly the most knowledgable and special person and we feel so fortunate to have been able to have had him as our guide. Each of our hotels were incredibly unique, with top notch service, delicious food and comfortable surroundings. The people, the food and the culture of Peru are incredible and we would highly recommend this vacation to anyone! We especially would recommend Aracari to anyone researching this country as they are the experts!
