I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect trip to Peru. It was just the right mix of adventure, exploration and relaxation. I owe that to Victoria with whom I had two lengthy conversations and many email exchanges prior to my arrival. She took the time (and then some) to understand what I was looking for and left no stone unturned in crafting the ideal itinerary for me, a solo traveler who wanted to do some real hiking and also immerse myself in the culture and history. It was truly a five star experience from start to finish. All the guides were incredible – their deep knowledge and passion for their country enhanced the experiences I had with them. It was especially nice to have Victoria and Yohn as guides several of the days. Not only because they know the country inside and out, but also because they’re so welcoming and fun. They also made sure that even the touristy things had some insider twist to it which made every site special. Hiking the Inca Trail to arrive at Machu Picchu in the late afternoon, after the crowds thinned, was a highlight I never expected. As was hiking the less visited side of Rainbow Mountain. If I could hire Victoria and Yohn to plan every vacation I take, I would!
Adventure of a lifetime!
Our recent trip to Peru was an amazing experience thanks to Victoria and Yohn! From the first email and phone call, Victoria helped us plan every detail. Our accommodations, activities, guides, etc. were wonderful, and we were able to completely relax and enjoy the adventures knowing everything was taken care of. We are able to see many of the best sights from an “insider” perspective without crowds. Best of all, we got to spend several days getting to know Victoria and Yohn as they showed us around Cusco and the Sacred Valley, and we now consider them friends. Would highly recommend Crossing Andes to anyone travelling to Peru!
Victoria and Yohn helped provide the experience of a lifetime. We got to know Victoria so well in the months before our trip (April 2019), exchanging emails about trip options, that it was like visiting old friends when we arrived in Cusco and met both her and Yohn. We thoroughly enjoyed their company and trip guidance as we explored the Cusco Valley and Machu Picchu, whether hiking, sightseeing, or sharing a meal. Our three-day trip into the Amazon and the three days we had in Lima were equally delightful. We recommended Victoria and Yohn to family members who visited Peru in November 2019, and they had an equally fantastic experience. We truly can’t say enough about how wonderful it was to get to know them both.
