I had a wonderful time on this trip. Everything was planned so well, and the sights we seen was amazing! My favorites were Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca. I was in awe withe the ruins at Machu Picchu, it was a spiritual experience that I will never forget. Lake Titicaca was an immersion into the culture the people who lived on the Floating Islands. Then, we took a boat ride to see Taquile Island where we were greeted by the most humble group of people who shared their culture with us. And on top of that they made us a delicious lunch! This trip truly immersed us in the culture of Peru. I came back to the U.S. feeling so centered and humbled...

We had a great time, we visited beautiful places.

This was an awesome tour. Our tour director, Enrique Virto was fabulous. He was attentive, intelligent, energetic, and very aware of the group and individual needs. He shared his knowledge and experiences in Peru readily.

Linda

Peru trip with SmartTour was a excellent experience. MachuPicchu, Lake Titikaka, Sacred valley ,Cusco city … were wonderful. Hotels were very nice, food was delicious. Most of most, our tour director is very kind, very knowledgeable, responsible and humor. The bus driver was also very nice and exceptional skill on driving made us feel so safe and relax.

Lilia L

Muy bueno el tour. Recomendaría que el tour al Templo Sagrado (2do día) se hiciera mas adelante, para darnos oportunidad de aclimatarnos o adaptarnos a la altura. Y el cierre fue excelente pero ese tour de 2 horas por el Museo fue hermoso pero al ser de ultimo es algo agotador. Solo se los dejo como una recomendación. Saludos y gracias.

My wife, Faye, and I just finished your "Enchanting Peru" Tour led by Enrique, Of course, Peru is indeed Enchanting, but it was made even more so by the excellence leadership of Enrique. His vast knowledge of the Incas and Peru is enlightening to his travelers. But his fine sense of humor, his wide travel experience, his facility with languages, and his genuine, friendly helpfulness are all top-notch. Smartours is fortunate to have Enrique as a tour director. His recommendations for restaurants and other venues were excellent in every case. This was my 9th Smartours trip, and because of Enrique it was truly outstanding. I recommend the trip and Enrique very highly!

Smartours name says it all. We just returned from Peru and because of our extremely knowledgeable tour director, Enrique Virto, we’re much smarter about this country ‘s history, people, geography and culture. I can’t begin to express my appreciation for all that Enrique taught us and his humor, knowledge and resourcefulness were invaluable. Because of him we easily averted several issues that would have been disastrous if we had planned this trip personally. One faux pas that was resolved resulted in us visiting Arequipa, which was a simply beautiful city. Each day on this trip was like stepping into history. Daily we were amazed by something and when we thought it couldn’t get better it did! The quality of everything provided on this tour was top level, making it an AMAZING value for the money. When you travel with Smartours you KNOW that your satisfaction is their top priority. This was my second trip with SmarTours and I’m already planning my next.

Andrea M

Fantastic tour through high spots of Peru. Hit a few travel snags (cancelled flight, cancelled train) which the tour directors took care of promptly, minimizing disruptions to travel. THAT is what you pay for in a tour! Henriqué truly made the trip!

SmarTours name says it all! We just returned from Peru and because of our extremely knowledgeable tour director, Enrique Virto, we’re much smarter about this country ‘s history, people, geography, beliefs and culture. I can’t begin to express my appreciation for all that Enrique taught us and how he kept us safe and healthy at such high altitudes. His humor, knowledge and resourcefulness were invaluable and made the trip so special. Because of him we easily averted several issues that would have been disastrous if we had planned this trip personally. His attentiveness to each of our needs as truly commendable! One faux pas that was outside of anyones control was quickly resolved & resulted in us visiting an additional city; Arequipa, which was simply beautiful! Each day on this trip was like stepping into history. Daily we were amazed by something and when we thought it couldn’t get better it did! The quality of everything provided on this tour was top level, making it an AMAZING value for the money. When you travel with SmarTours you KNOW that your satisfaction is their top priority. Not having to struggle with pushing my luggage, knowing that my belongings were safe on our bus, having great sleeping accommodations, good food and any issues and or question quickly addressed are only a few things that keep me coming back. This was my second trip with SmarTours and I’m already planning my next.

Its started off with lots of confusion, but the whole trip ended up being amazing, thanks to Dagmar. We loved every day on the trip with everyone.

Jane

Peru was fascinating. Machu Picchu was amazing and the floating islands in Lake Titicaca were very interesting. The hotel accommodations were very nice. The city tours of Cusco and Lima were informative. Our tour guide, Enrique was excellent.

Melissa

This tour of Peru was my first international trip after getting vaccinated, but still during the COVID-19 pandemic. I was nervous about traveling, but this trip was so well put together and our health was closely monitored. Our guide, Enrique, was attentive not only to our adjustment to the altitude, but took our temperature daily and SmarTours arranged for a COVID test before we departed. All that to say, I felt safe and we saw so many beautiful sights, the highlight being Machu Picchu. Enrique was so knowledgeable that we learned a lot about history and culture and met some wonderful Peruvian people who were warm and generous. This tour provides great value for the money - the hotels were very nice and the food was tasty. I enjoyed seeing all the embroidery and weavings. I highly recommend taking this tour and hope you are lucky enough to travel with Enrique!

Maria

It was our first time to join a group tour. Smart Tours did not disappoint. Dagmar, our tour director, was very knowledgeable. So were the other tour guides. Dagmar took very good care of our group. Pacing was just right, accommodations excellent. We learned a lot about beautiful Peru. We would consider doing a tour with Smart Tours again.

Marguerite

Just returned from Peru and cannot say enough about this trip. It was all we hoped for and then some. Our guide Lucho was excellent and very patient. Our group of 11 bonded and with every day we just enjoyed all the culture and beauty of this country. Machu Picchu was stunning but Lake Titicaca was so interesting with the floating islands and the Uros people. This was our 4th trip with Smartours and I’m looking for our next adventure with them. Best value and experience around.

Enchanting Peru - Originally, we had planned on putting our own Peru adventure together, however, it became quite daunting not knowing which transportation companies to use, which hotels were conveniently located and how to reliably book all of our activities and related tickets. We were "swirling" and not making progress with our planning. We were actually considering a different destination and basically giving up on visiting Peru. Then, a very good friend (who has been on over 20 SmarTours) forwarded an e-mail to us on the "Enchanting Peru" trip through SmarTours. Our prayers were answered! For a very reasonable price, with an amazing itinerary, all we had to do was to make a telephone call...book it...and pack! There ended up being 14 total people on the trip..., which was perfect. All hotels we stayed in were top notch, each day well planned and the transportation comfortable and reliable. The best thing that happened to us on this trip was that our tour guide was Dagmar Becerra, a resident of Cusco. Dagmar became our teacher, our trusted advisor, a comedian, a kind disciplinarian (when some of us deserved it) and most of all, a friend. We learned more from her in 11 days, than we have in years. Based on this first experience with SmarTours, I plan on booking with them next year...but the next tour guide has big shoes to fill. (Thank you Dagmar - you ARE the BEST!!!)
