Client testimonial – service in the most adverse weather conditions
â€œNow that we’re back from our Peru visit I wanted toÂ drop you a line to thank you for the exceptional service AracariÂ Travel provided us over the last week. We expected the highlight of our trip to be our visit to the Sacred ValleyÂ ending with our planned hike into Machu Picchu. When we learned of the flooding in the Urubamba River and the likelihood thatÂ we’d be unable to get into Machu Picchu your staff did a remarkable job of rearranging our trip in a manner that, in reflection, was moreÂ fulfilling than our original planned trip would have been. We had noÂ idea Peru was so rich in culture and ruins, both Incan and pre-Incan beyond Machu Picchu. We are indebted to Aracari for getting us to theÂ ruins at Pisac, Sacsayhuaman, Puca Pucara, Qenco, Tambomachay,Â Chinchero, and the all too brief visit to Ollantaytambo. When added to the visits to the Cathedral, La Compania, the Convent of La Merced, San Blas, the Inca walls of the Convent of Santo Domingo, theÂ Archaeology Museum, and too many other sites to remember in Cuzco allÂ I can really say is thank you for an extraordinary experience.â€
