Sun Gate did an excellent job. Jonathan planned everything well and thoroughly. Itinerary can be customized to meet (and exceed expectations). Representatives from Sun Gate met me at the Lima, Cusco, Puno (Juliaca) and Trujillo airports and transported to the lodging. Guides were very informative, made touring lifelong experience. Had unforgettable time exploring the culture first 7 days, and finally relaxing
at Chicama Surf Resort which is home to the longest left in the world.
I would highly and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone traveling in Peru

We just got back from an amazing trip through Sun Gate Tours. Peru and the Inca Trail have been on our bucket list for many years. My husband and I are now in our 60s, so we knew the time was now. Sun Gate Tours put together a wonderful trip for us. Jonathan Goldsmith was extremely helpful in putting together our itinerary, suggesting the Colca Canyon trip first to help us adjust to the altitude. We loved seeing the Colca Canyon, Andes condors, vicunas, llamas, alpacas, gorgeous wild flowers and much more. We loved our tour of the Sacred Valley. The Inca Trail was all we hoped for. Our guide, Daniel, was outstanding. Florintino, our chef, and his team were incredible. Of course, Machu Pichu was the highlight of our trip. Throughout it all, we felt very supported by the Sun Gate team. They took all of the worry out of the travel, leaving us to enjoy this amazing country. I would highly recommend Sun Gate Tours for anyone planning a trip to Peru. Rebecca

My wife wanted to see arqueological sites in Peru. As first time to Peru, I had David from Sun Gate to help plan our trip.
Everything was great, from first day pick up, all travel and accommodation was greatly planned. We had the Nazcar Lines, although our seats were a little obstructed by the aiplane wings, everything else were great.
Then, we flew to Cusco and there were Richard who accompanied us most of them way. We visited various sites, and Richard was very knowledge and kind to explain everything. In our vista dome train to Machu Picchu, where Watson guided us and led us to the important places and show us where to go at our free time. He gave us tips for our next day trip.
In all this trip, we were promptly received, everthing went smooth, no rushing, good hotels and transportation.

Sungate tours helped us avoid a potential nightmare while we were in Peru. My wife became very ill after eating something (we're pretty sure it was the snack they gave us on a Cruz Del Sur bus, don't eat the food on the bus!) and she had to be admitted to a clinic for treatment. Richard and Flor helped us get to the clinic and communicate with the medical staff to make sure everything was OK. After she recovered, Richard even went out of his way to make up for one of the activities we had to miss and gave us a tour of the Saqsaywaman ruins in Cusco. Richard is like a walking encyclopedia of Inca facts and customs, I learned so many crazy things and fun facts from him.

Sungate will go above and beyond to make sure that you have a good time even if something unexpected happens. I cannot recommend them enough!

My husband and I (in our 60's) had a fantastic 2-week trip to Peru in March. Although I planned the first few days (in Cusco) and the last few days in Lima myself, the best part of the trip was the 9-day tour that we planned with Jonathan at Sun Gate Tours. This was totally customized. Richard and Flor (our guide) came to our hotel the evening before we started our trek, to go over everything and make sure we brought the right things. The first 2 days was an overnight trek to Huchuy Qosco with our guide, Flor, which included a homestay. I must say the trek was more difficult than we expected due to the altitude (14,000 ft at times), and we were very glad we had rented the walking sticks. The homestay was a wonderful experience, and although very basic accomodations, I would recommend highly. The family was so welcoming and friendly, they sang and played flute for us, and made wonderful meals too. After 2 nights in Ollantaytambo, we did the 1-day hike on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, entering through the Sun Gate (wonderful!), and toured MP again the next morning. Back in Cusco, Richard explained the next leg of our trip-- to Lake Titicaca, including another homestay on an island. We spent those next 3 days with a group and some excellent guides. Thoroughly enjoyable. All the hotels booked by Sun Gate were very nice, clean and comfortable, the tickets and transfers all taken care of efficiently, drivers competent (no white knuckles!), and the whole trip went very smoothly. Flor, who we spent 5 days with, was a terrific guide. Highly recommend Sun Gate Tours.
