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 at Aracari put together an incredible trip to Bolivia for my dad and I. We were treated like rock stars from the moment we arrived and were greeted by Javier, and our tour guide Alan bent over backwards- visiting every place we wanted to go, answering every little question we had, and making sure everything went as smoothly as possible. I would gladly travel with Aracari again and recommend it to everyone!

We recently completed a tour with you (Peru – Colca Canyon & Inca Trail) and want to thank you for putting together such a first class, and wonderful trip. We always felt we were well taken care of, and treated incredibly well. The hotels and tours were all great. We would highly recommend you to others (I already have!). A couple points of note. First, Abelardo, our guide from Cusco through the Inca Trail + was amazing. He was the best! Knowledgeable, flexible to work to our level but never pushy, an excellent guide, and most important, a good person that was easy to be with. He was great. Also of note, Raul was also amazing – very much a gentleman who was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, and made us feel comfortable throughout. Thank you for putting everything together for us, and for making it such a great trip.

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.

Aracari’s attention to detail was excellent and much appreciated as this is what makes the difference. The itinerary was interesting, diverse, well structured and importantly executed without a hitch. Thank you for a really fabulous vacation!

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

Aracari team- Our initial contact with Mark Green was easy , informative, and very helpful with planning our trip to Peru. He zoomed in quickly to our ideas and with our discussions we were able to pinpoint hotels, restaurants , and experiences we would enjoy! Thank- you, Mark!

Having Raul meet us put us at ease with what to expect from our trip,guides and sights to come. He made sure we knew we were in control of when, what we wanted to do!

We would definitely recommend Aracari and we enjoyed our trip very much. Thank you to everyone who made this trip special  for us!

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!

Your help with setting it all up could not have been better … connections, guides, itinerary, transfers, accommodations were all smooth and first rate. All sites in the Sacred Valley were magnificent and we probably could have spent an extra day there and one less day in Cusco … the train experiences on Vista Dome and Hiram Bingham could not have been better. Lastly I cannot overstate how we all liked Leo Oblitas – extremely knowledgeable as most guides are but more importantly Leo is very personable and he connected with each of us on many individual levels. His devotion to his family and their experiences brought a new dimension to the trip.

Thanks for all you and Aracari did … We will be spreading the word.

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!

We had a phenomenal time with the tours. And John was so knowledgeable! I only wish we had more time to learn from him. I have already passed along your company to several friends headed to Peru in the coming months.
