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:

We will of course recommend Aracari to anyone who asks – it was one of the top three trips we have ever taken…and to not have to think about taxis, trains, flights, etc – just makes it all the more enjoyable obviously.

We had a wonderful time in Lima with Aracari and will definitely recommend you to others.

- Peter Yong, February 2017

Many thanks for your attention. We had a safe return and a wonderful experience in Peru. The organization was perfect and we didn’t have to worry about anything. Our role was just to enjoy which we definitely did. Machu Picchu is a unique and amazing site.

By the way, the choice of Rafael restaurant for our farewell dinner in Lima was a great decision. Simply the best!

Thank you SO much for helping us to have the most wonderful time in Peru! My interlude with altitude adjustment illness was, because of the wonderful help we got from our hotel and fabulous guide (Adriana) and driver (Ugo), short. I really do not believe that without Adriana’s translating I would have recovered so quickly and so well. The staff at Sol y Luna was also exceptional in caring about me.

Our trip was really exceptional. We appreciate the hotels you helped select for us and every single guide. Bruce was also a treasure in Lima.

My husband was not looking so much forward to last day of tastings and art. He was absolutely enthralled with every minute. Again thank you Bruce!

Of course, Adriana is also exceptional. We really wanted to put her in our suitcase to bring her home!

Marisol, what a fabulous trip your people organised for us. Everything was wonderful from the guides, the drivers, the places, the food and the hotels. We both said it is without doubt our best holiday ever. I am hooked on Camu Camu and on the hunt to find them in the UK… probably not possible. We did really well up at Lake Titicaca and were fascinated at how people live.

My family of 4 just returned from an amazing trip to Peru, arranged by Aracari. Mark Green handled all the arrangements, making it a stress-free vacation. Everything ran seamlessly–all flights, trains, hotels. Our guide in Cusco and Machu Picchu was Fernando (shout out to our driver Hugo who was awesome too!). He had an incredible wealth of knowledge and we enjoyed his company. When my husband got sick, Fernando arranged to have a doctor meet us at our hotel. We also spent a wonderful day with Chef Penelope, learning to make Pisco Sours, exploring the markets and cooking in her beautiful apartment overlooking the water. We would use Aracari again without hesitation.

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.

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!!

- Ana Milton, December 2017

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.

- Marie Harrison, April 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.
