Peru Trip 2019-2020
My family and I traveled to Peru to celebrate Christmas and New Years after college graduation and definitely wished for a special and truly unique experience. Crossing Andes was a phenomenal company that provided very fast, accurate, and reliable information in order to help plan our trip. This was even more appreciated given the fact that we were a tad bit late in organizing our trip and were pushing our time limit (which also corresponded with a busy holiday time period). We were given an itinerary we all could agree upon within a few days of contacting Crossing Andes and I was personally enthralled by the remarkable speed that the company was able to arrange something like this. We arrived into Cusco where we started our trip and we were met by a most punctual and delightful tour guide. Very informative and always eager to crack a joke, we had a great time with him. Even better was that the tour guides were always on time and patient even if we were slow getting out of our hotels. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of Peru and every place we went to was always stunning and unique. I only hope that everyone can experience a trip to Peru like we did and Crossing Andes was a crucial part to our phenomenal time in a beautiful country!
Traveling thru Peru with teenagers
We had a fantastic trip visiting Peru. We are a family of 5, and have 3 teenage boys ranging from 13-18. The trip was perfect for us as we did a little bit of everything. All of our accommodations were fantastic, as were our drivers and guides. It was nice that Victoria called us prior to planning our trip in order to get a sense of how we liked to travel and what we wanted to do. Everything worked out perfectly!
An Amazing and Personal Journey
My time spent in Peru was amazing and it was the great effort that Vicky and Yohn put into my trip which made it amazing. They were not only able to take me to locations that are off the beaten path but also provided great suggestions and advice on how to truly enjoy my time in Peru. Further, they dedication to make sure all the small details of my trip were handled from travel accommodations to making sure I had great guides, allowed for a stress free trip. I would highly recommend Crossing Andes to anyone interested in visiting Peru. I can not wait to go back there again.
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!
