What past clients have written about our tours:

(People with a love of nature and foreign cultures are sure to have a great time, but you do not have to take just our word for it! Below are direct quotes taken from the Trip Critiques of past participants regarding the best parts of the trip and other comments:)Peru tour travel photos

J. Heyde: "No surprises, just as advertised! Your in country tour guides and hosts are absolutely first class. When you sign up for foreign tours without the benefit of face to face..., you are naturally skeptical about how it will all turn out, especially being aware that you might be stuck in the boondocks and not able to even speak the language. I don't know how you do what you do in planning these trips, but it exceeded my expectations."

C. Cyrus: "I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with your level of service, knowledge of the area and friendly helpfulness - as I usually plan my own trips independently. So to use an agent that actually provided what they promised was especially nice."

J. Ackerman: "The variety of plant, animal and insect life. Also seeing the way the people along the river live. Just getting away from it all and relaxing was great, and a nice change of pace."

K. Toni: "The entire trip was great, far beyond anything I expected... This trip really was one fantastic thing after another. I was a little apprehensive about doing it at first, because I was traveling alone and going to a place that I didn't know much about, but any apprehension was erased the first day."

M. Betzold: "This was for me a most enlightening adventure. I was awed and inspired by everything I experienced, and just when I thought it couldn't get any better, it did!"

J. Ackerman: "The canopy walkway, the variety of plant, animal and insect life. Also seeing the way the people along the river live."

S. Schmitt: "Walking through the jungle, climbing up in the canopy, trading with the local Indians."

L. Kalber: "The entire time aboard the ship - great food, nice cabins, wonderful weather (no insects!) and the view from the top observation deck. The day trips were major highlights - boat excursions to see wildlife, natives, etc."

L. Travis: "The very different lives and distinctive lifestyles and cultures. The warmth of the people of Peru, the friends made on the ship, Machu Picchu, traveling without fear or hassle."

R. Hanka: "The daily activities; The Amazon River itself; I can't think of anything bad; The nights on the Amazon River were outstanding, very interesting."

L. Kochendorfer: "Primitiveness of the jungle. Good shopping in Cuzco. Fantastic Inca ruins and mountains."

J. Laurich: "The organization was excellent, the itinerary was full and very complete, the food was outstanding, the guides were wonderful"

V. Hubbard: "The accommodations were unusual-interesting-exciting-better than I expected... I recommend this trip highly!"

J. Prater: ""Scenery of the Andes, Sacred Valley and twilight return to Cuzco, train ride to Machu Picchu! Sitting on the second deck of the ship, launch rides up the tributaries, visits into home of Amazones"

I. Barger: "Trip was fantastic! Everything I hoped it would be!"

H. O'Rourke: "I had a great time and a wonderful experience which I will remember forever."

W. Walser: "Everybody had only good things to say about every aspect of this trip! ...The food in the lodges was unbelievably good, wholesome and well combined. I can only recommend your services."

Alice Hollingsworth: "Seeing an entirely new culture - visiting the school and village - trading with the villagers - having the guides share their knowledge"

K. Thomas: "The relaxation in the jungle! No pressures. The guides were great. It was great to see them enjoy their lands and traditions. They were more than willing to help answer questions and most of all- have fun."

J. Ekoniak: "Fantastic vacation on every count: the place visited, the group I was part of, the local people and the company that packaged it. The quality of the destination was matched by the quality of your organization. I appreciate and admire your personal and business ethics, Charlie. I enjoyed speaking with you. Thanks."

D. Dean: "All I can say is it was great, fabulous, wonderful, etc.- I just hope it stays the way it is and I hope to go back some day.."
