    We just returned from a custom trip to Peru organized by Mark Green at Aracari. We have traveled all over the world and would rate this trip among the top. Everything was perfect. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly, and some of the best we have ever had. Our hotels in Lima, Cusco, and the Sacred Valley were exceptional. We could not be more pleased with their services and felt very well cared for. In fact, we are booking our trip to Galapos and Ecuador with them for next February. We could not be more pleased.

    I totally agree with everyone that are saying good things about Aracari! I would recommend them 100 percent and will use their service again for sure! Machu Picchu is conquered with their help and next, it will be Galapagos. I cannot wait!

    We enjoyed all the Inca sites and each guide was extremely knowledgeable, interested, and very personable. We spent 4 days with Carlos and really enjoyed his passion for the country, as he was really well suited for us. All the guides were very accommodating and a pleasure to be with. This was a great introduction to personal travel with guides and it was a great experience.

    We had such a wonderful experience and I cannot say enough about our trip. From the day we arrived and the moment we left, we were well 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 I cannot say enough about him. I look forward to contacting you guys again, when we visit the Galapagos islands.

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

    As Alex was so very sick in Urubamba, Jose stayed with us through it all, translating medical questions and showing great care. We are very, very satisfied.

    What a wonderful and incredible trip planned to perfection. The guides are so knowledgable and we learned so much. In every hotel booked by Aracari, we got a free upgrade. I loved that I was not worrying about tickets, transportation, etc. We could really relax. Most importantly, my husband became very sick and required serious care. Our guide took us to a wonderful clinic and my husband received all the care we could hope for. The guide, Jose, never left our side. Aracari is well worth the money.

    Aracari organized a wonderful, 28-day private custom tour for me and my husband, where we visited Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley, Cusco, Lake Titicaca, Colca Canyon, and Lima. They developed a well-paced itinerary with great hotels, restaurants, and cultural experiences to match our specific interests and needs. Most importantly, our guides were amazing. They were well-educated with an in-depth knowledge of the country's history, culture, art, and spirituality. They were very flexible, kind, and attentive to our needs. In our experience as world travelers for over 40 years, we would rate the level of Aracari's service as truly exceptional and would give them our highest recommendation.

    I recently had the pleasure of traveling with Aracari in Peru. Their organization has highly qualified guides and their staff members are all passionate about their jobs. Our group experienced a disruption to our travel arrangements, due to a strike. However, Aracari handled everything beautifully, re-arranging our hotels, train tickets, and flights at minimal cost to us. I will definitely use their services again and cannot wait to go back to Peru.

    I have been on several trips with Aracari and they have all been pretty much perfect! They really know the region and have trips to satisfy all of one's requirements. But most importantly, they make it an authentic adventure, where you see and experience the real Peru. Plus, they are friendly and extremely helpful. I highly recommend them for any trip to Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Our family will miss spending time with Juan Zuniga, who was the guide. We very much enjoyed all the activities he shared with us, as well as his patience and guidance, and all of his fascinating information about Inca culture. We appreciated the genuine kindness of our guides, Juan, Javier, and Neal, who showed us in all of our activities. Juan was especially attentive to our children. We liked the Ollantaytambo and Sacred Valley the best; it was low key and the natural beauty was serene. To experience the New Year celebration with fireworks in the main Cusco square, was a fun cultural experience. Also, we loved our one-day trek into Machu Picchu; fabulous! Mark Green was extremely attentive and responsive. Thanks!

    I cannot believe that it has been over 2 weeks since we came back from our Peru adventure. I have been meaning to write to you personally to thank you for an outstanding trip. It was seamless from the moment we landed in Lima, to our international flight home. It was so well organized, especially in helping us acclimate and building up to our trek on the Inca Trail. The hotels were lovely and perfectly matched to our expectations, and our guides were extremely informative and helpful. I really cannot say enough about how impressed we were with you (and Aracari). Whenever we talk about our trip, we credit your expertise. Thank you for answering my million of questions, your support throughout, and for making this such a memorable trip for our family.
