Rainbow mountain
Good tour but very long day. Felt rushed to see rainbow mountain and the red valley, but then we ended up leaving over an hour after I got back to the bus because someone was late. Not that this was the companies fault.

Machu Picchu on a budget
Great tour. I really wanted to see Machu Picchu while spending as little money as possible. Peru Travel Company delivered and helped me accomplish my goal. The only added cost you can skip to save even more money which I did not do was take the train in. Honestly, it’s worth it though. The train ride goes through the mountains and offers great views of snow capped peaks. Once I made it to Aguas Calientes, the town at the base of Mach Picchu, my hostel had been pre-booked through Peru Travel Company and I even got a free breakfast the next day. I opted not to take a guided tour which I recommend if you want to take your time and not feel rushed. Overall, my experience with Peru travel company was awesome. I would recommend using them for all of your travel needs in Peru.

Very happy
Me and my friends booked the one day tour to see moray and the maras salt mines. The tour was cery well organised and we enjoyed a nice day. Unfortunately some days after the tour, we noticed a problem with a payment that we made on the tour. In the shop i seemed that our credit cards didn’t work, so we eventually paid by cash. But on my credit card bank statement, the money was subtracted. We got in contact with the tour company and they asked around. Eventually we received the money back :)

Great tour outside of cusco
I met some friends in a hostel while I was staying in cusco, and we took this tour together, the first place we went was chincheros, it was quite nice, the guide took us to a clothes weaving place, and then off to the ruins. Everything was great

Overall a fantastic experience
We got picked up at our hotel by our guide Carlos to be informed it’ll only be us on the tour which I found rather disappointing as it would be been nice to meet other people during the duration of the tour. During the rafting and zip lining you are out with other groups so it was nice to mingle with other travelers. It was here where our issue started, we found out other people booked their tours in Cusco and paid MUCH less than us as we booked through Viator. I know third party sites need to make money but we paid about $140 extra per person that if we booked on the tour site directly with the same package but this is not the fault of the company but our own. I really recommend this tour with Peru travel company but do not waste your money and book through any tour agency just book with them directly, our guides English was exceptional and William ( I believe it was him ) was checking in on us throughout the trip which was a nice touch. The tour ran very smoothly and was nice to learn some of the Peruvian history. The accommodation is basic as well as the food and make sure you take plenty of extra soles as the Peruvians charge you for EVERYTHING even toilet paper in the second accommodation it’s all cheap but it does build up fast. This will be the same for every tour so don’t let this put you off.

Long drive, but can’t beat being at the base of a legendary mountain. The puna landscape was incredible.

Peru Travel Company/ Salkantay Treck
Travel agency couldn‘t have been better. They organized everything perfect- always helpful and very approachable. We can recommend it for 100percent. Salkantay Treck: The food was awesome and it was a great experience. Make sure that you have appropriate equipment for the first night- it can get cold.

Inca Jungle Trek
The Inca Jungle Trek was the highlight of our trip. From mountain biking, to white water rafting, to zip lining, to finally seeing Machu Picchu, this trip included it all. William arranged our train and taxi back to Cusco after Machu Picchu so we had one less thing to worry about after our 3 day trek. He also maintained contact with us to assure that everything was going to plan. Our guide Richard was phenomenal. He was super knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. He went above and beyond making sure every detail was correct. Richard also did a fantastic job of explaining all of the Andino and Inca history. I would highly recommend this tour for people looking for some adventure while visiting Peru and Machu Picchu.

2 days Colca Canyon
We booked the tour with William because of a personal recommendation and i am very glad we did. The tour was impeccably organised, the food and accommodation of good quality and the transport comfortable. What made our tour however was our guide Milagros, such a knowledgeable and lovely woman. She took us around with gusto, smiles and was always ready to answer questions. The most amazing thing of all this experience is that I actually booked it for a date in July meaning June. When we realised (the afternoon before we needed to go) William bent over backwards for us and managed to put us on a tour nevertheless. I am very grateful for his kindness (it was completely my mistake) and flexibility and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and his company.

Feedback from my 4 day jungle experience
I booked this tour back in May 2019 with the very friendly staff. Everything from the booking process to the tour itself was very smooth. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour. The tour guide was explaining the Peruvian culture and he made it very interesting for us. We even had a little boogie on one of the nights The rafting was definitely my personal highlight it was so much fun. So was the ziplining! Definitely recommend this tour and with booking with this agency.

Taxi & guide from Cusco to Ollyantaytambo
William from Peru Travel met me at hostel to confirm details night before. The best way to contact William is via WhatsApp after booking. Ramiro was our guide & driver and picked us up from hostel on time in a very comfy car. We visited salt terraces, Maras, Moray & Ollyantayambo. Ramiro was very informative & English was very good. I am travelling with my 2 teenage kids who also enjoyed the tour. We also had fabulous weather, so much so the guide was taking photos! Thanks for a great day.

2 day rain forest, 2 day inca/machu picchu hike & 2 day colca canyon tour
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our tours with the Peru Travel Company. We booked in advance because we did not have much time to spend in Peru, only 2 weeks. We organised our trip around these activities and it was a wonderful holiday. The guides were fantastic, and William is very helpful and clear when he messages you, so you understand exactly what you are getting. I will recommend to any friends that visit Peru. Thank you.

Inca Jungle trek 4 days / 3 nights
Very good organization of our 4 days trek towards Machu Picchu. Our guide Carlos was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. The activities (mountain biking, rafting, ziplining) were a lot of fun and were included in the original price as planned. We even got a private room with bathroom in the 3 different hostels without extra cost (very basic accommodation and meals but normal for this kind of trek) Thank you William!
