Inspirational and Life Altering Journey
We returned from a truly phenomenal almost 2 week trip with Aracari, perfectly planned by Mark Green (so many thanks!). We saw so many wonderful and fascinating places all brought to life by our exceptional guides: huge shout outs to John Davis, Mario Huaman Pacheco, Lisy Kuon, driver Pedro, Jorge and everyone who took great care of us and made everything go absolutely seamlessly. We learned so much which was one of our goals… not just to tick off boxes of a bucket list. Aracari is masterful at this. The special experiences learning about the Achupalla plant during the visit to the Janac community and the “picnic” were awesome. Not to give anything away but what a picnic! We have never been treated to such an amazing time! Mario’s gentle urging got us up the 12 km of the Inca Trail which was a magnificent experience. All of the accommodations were wonderful, as well. Thank you so much to everyone with Aracari. We loved everything! September 2018
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe my wife’s and my four-day trek last month on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu organized by Aracari! The phenomenal vistas and impressive Inca sites visible only from the Trail coupled with the comfort – no, luxury – provided by the remarkable Aracari team of guides, porters and chefs made the trek a highlight of our lives. The food was delicious (and too plentiful) and the team couldn’t do enough to take care of us and meet our every need. Our head guide, Abelardo, was amazing in the depth and breadth of his knowledge and his ability to organize our days to maximum advantage. He was also a wonderful traveling companion.
Aracari’s planning and in-country support were flawless. They chose superb hotels in Lima, the Sacred Valley and Cusco. Their representatives awaited us at every airport arrival and made transfers effortless. Ada, one of Aracari’s reps, wasn’t rattled when Avianca canceled our Lima-Cusco flight while we were checking in. She went into action and, with only minutes to go before departure, she had us on a LATAM flight that got us to Cusco earlier than our initially scheduled arrival time!
Aracari has our unreserved thanks for putting this wonderful experience together for us.
Every year, my wife and I travel somewhere fabulous with another couple. This year was a trip to Peru, and we called Hellen to give us ideas and make arrangements. No, we did not rough it! We had a fabulous time in the Sacred Valley, Cusco, Macchu Pichu, Lima, and a 4-night Amazon cruise! Just a note, our flights to the Amazon going there and coming back were cancelled, and could have stranded us if not for the fact that the team at Aracari were right on top of the situation, and aware able to arrange alternatives in and out!
Thanks to all at Aracari . . .
Treated like royalty
We have just returned from a two week trip to Peru expertly planned by Hellen. She was exceedingly patient with our many questions, very responsive, and helpful in planning a well paced trip that fit within our budget. From our greeting by Raul at arrival in Lima to our final drop-off for departure, we felt well cared for by all of our guides and professional drivers. Bruce, Jose, and Ronald were wonderful guides and in particular Abelardo went out of his way to be helpful. Thanks for a marvelous trip.
