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!!

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, niece (18 year old) and I just returned yesterday from Peru – and wanted to send a HUGE GRACIAS to Aracari for making this trip one of a lifetime! Everything ran so smoothly from beginning to end – and there’s no way I ever could have constructed such a wonderful journey. For sure, it was packed — but we came back feeling we’d seen such a diversity in Peru — and truthfully look forward to coming back and exploring more. The entire Aracari team deserves our appreciation. They knew just how to counsel us and talk us through what would work for us given our interests and time constraints. It ended up being a perfect balance of wildlife, culture, adventure and a bit of relaxation. From the Amazon basin, to Sacred Valley, to Inka Trail, to Cusco and Lake Titicaca, everything ran so smoothly. And although the weather was terrible during our one day Inka Trail hike with rain & clouds obscuring Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate, we still wouldn’t change a thing – what a true adventure. I can’t thank Aracari enough. And I will of course recommend and tell everyone I know to use your services.

We had such a wonderful experience and I can’t say enough about our trip. From the day we arrived and the moment we left, we were taken care of. All of our guides were professional, timely, knowledgeable and made us feel at home. We learned and saw so many things. Our accommodation far exceeded what I had expected. Having gone with two 11 year old, the activities kept them busy and interested. I really appreciated Raul and his kindness. I do hope his hand is better. Fredy was wonderful and can’t say enough about him. I look forward to contacting you guys again when we visit the Galapagos islands.

Mark Green planned a 16 day Peru and Galapagos trip for us. He and the Aracari team were very responsive throughout the planning process. The trip was fantastic and the services on the ground were top notch. They are a luxury trip planner and that is reflected in their prices, but the services are so good that the value is excellent. Worth every penny. If you are hiking and get Mario as your guide, it will be one of the greatest guiding experiences of your traveling life. Highly recommend Aracari. They are pros.

One of our absolute best family trips ever. Guide (Francis Casapino) very knowledgeable, friendly, courteous, caring = excellence

- Carabello & Baum family, June 2016

My wife and I both think Aracari did a spectacular job organizing our land trip in Peru. The hotels were the best we have ever seen, the guides knowlegable and fun traveling companions, and the whole orchestration of the trip worked well for us.

We thought the attention to detail by your team was really first rate and we really enjoyed the time with Fernando and Hugo the driver. The day at Ollataytambo was just terrific and we loved the hike up to the top. We really liked the visit to Moray and the trek as well and then the picnic lunch – again Fernando was just terrific to coordinate with such precision.  The salt  mines were of great interest.

How terrific to be able to get coffee at 6:00 AM at Sanctuary Lodge and walk 30 yards to the gate at Macchu Picchu.

- Lee Cohen, July 2016

Francis (Casapino) took great care to listen to our needs and desires. He also spent time introducing us to the culture and sharing experiences

We returned from Peru late afternoon yesterday and I just wanted to thank you/Aracari so much for such an amazing trip. We had a truly magical/memorable/superb time and Aracari were brilliant. Their transfers aren’t just transfers – they’re like guided voyages! And our guide up Machu Picchu was brilliant – in fact, it made our trip. My quads are still aching from the hike we did up MP mountain on our second day there!!
