Just wanted to say THANKS to you for another job well done. Last year you did a wonderful job on planning our Peru trip and this year it was the Galapagos. Both well done. Sudha, I and the kids just returned from the Galapagos and what a time we had. As usual, you delivered on everything you promised. The trip, one that we will fondly remember for years to come, was enjoyable as well as educational. And as always, it was a pleasure working with you during the planning.
As for the The Legend, it's a ship that you can feel very comfortable in recommending to your other clients. Yvette Hauser and her crew took great care of us, paying attention to every detail and ensuring we were comfortable and well attended to. As for our naturalist/guide, Jorge, we loved having him as our guide. In addition to showing us the sights, he also provided detailed explanations of why things are the way they are in the Galapagos. Given our science backgrounds and keen interest in this subject, we enjoyed and learned much from his talks. Between us, we now refer to him as ”Professor Jorge”. :) As for the ship itself, it has the amenities and comfort that of a large ship and yet the number of passengers on it is small enough to make it a more ”intimate” experience.
Well, that's all for now. Just wanted to say THANKS to you for all that you do. Clearly, when we travel again to South America, you'll be sure to hear from us.
Vinay and Sudha,
The trip was absolutely great. Your service was excellent. As a traveler who often makes his own arrangements, it was a great relief to have all this taken care of for me. The itinerary was excellent. I would highly recommend your services to any potential clients. I certainly would like to return for a more extensive tour of your country.
The trip was FANTASTIC! We thank you and your local colleagues very much for being so coordinated and punctual.
Christian had left the travel documents for us by the time we landed in Lima and called us twice to make sure we understood what the documents meant, if we had any questions, etc. Carlos met us at the airport in Cusco with signs and all, and Rosie briefed us afterwards at the hotel. Our tours were splendid -- both Janet and Darwin were very well-informed, energetic, and patient with our groups;we couldn't have asked for better guides. And the bus pick-ups and deliveries were always punctual (I am a great fan of punctuality). Both Carlos and Maria were at the train station as promised when we returned tired and weary from Machu Picchu.
Thank you again very much for a terrific trip -- you even arranged for the weather to be perfect! We are recommending you to all our friends and will definitely keep you in mind if we have plans to travel elsewhere in South America.
Kind Regards and much continued success to your group!

Our trip to Peru was fascinating. The detailed program that you so efficiently customized for us worked out beautifully. All your representatives were right on time to pick us up at airports and trainstations providing all kinds of information for the following day. This made us feel very confortable at all times. Rene in Miami was most helpful. The hotels were very good. Bernard , you were wonderful. You customized the itinerary to ourliking, responded to all our e-mails promptly and worked with us in aone to one personal way in spite of being very busy as owner and chief leader of the Company.
All in all it was a great experience. Thank you very much.
Mario and Pat,
We just returned home from Peru and wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had. Peru For Less exceeded our expectations for a tour company and made sure we had a safe, exciting, and informative trip.
The contacts and transport people were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there and guided us through every step of the journey. They were knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. We very much appreciated your phone call to check on us as well. I don't think we could have messed up the trip if we had tried.
We hope to return to Peru someday, and, when we do, it will be with Peru For Less. Nobody does it better.
Pam and I gave each other this trip for Christmas. It was the best gift we have given or received. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!

My trip was really great. Everything that we had planned ran so smoothly. All of my transfers were on time and the staff was very helpful. The horseback riding and rafting days were great. The bus tours were thorough and I met some nice people along the way.
I'm really glad I spent the night in Aguas Caliente. That gave me the opportunity to do some serious hiking on Huayna Picchu. It was spectacular! I was also happy with both of my hotels, which were nicer than I expected for a ”budget” tour. Thanks for making my trip so fun and easy! I will definitely recommend Peru for Less to anyone I know taking a trip to Peru.
We were absolutely delighted with the smoothness of the arrangements youmade. All our connections were there and everyone was helpful and friendly.This was a major benefit for us as we were first-time travelers, not only to Peru, but to South America. We loved the hotels in Arequipa, Aguas Calientes and the final one in Cusco. We also were very happy with the hotel in Lima.
These are the things we enjoyed the most (not in any order of preference):
1) Machu Picchu - we really needed the extra day there, and could have stayed longer. It is every bit as wonderful as the pictures show.
2) The scenery and countryside - Peru is beautiful and we have only seen the south. Our photographs show how lovely it is.
3) The people - a big one this - your tour guides are outstanding and everyone we met was incredibly friendly. It may be that my small amount of Spanish helped - I found people most anxious to talk to me when they knew I could understand them and respond in their language.
4) The food!!! How does everyone eat three super meals a day and stay so fit? The food at Posada Amazonas was particularly outstanding.
5) The buildings and ruins - how impressive! We felt that we were seeing a surfeit of riches on our tour of the Sacred Valley.
6) The cities - each one has its own character. We thought Aguas Calientes was a blast! I loved Arequipa.
7) Your internal transportation is outstanding - very professional, very efficient - and the fashion show on the return trip from Machu Picchu to Cusco was really fun.
8) The organization of the tour - because it was so very smooth, it gave us more time and opportunity to enjoy our trip. We had confidence that people would be were you said they would be and everyone worked with us to make this a great vacation.
I'm sure there are many more highlights that I cannot think of right now - you can tell what a wonderful trip we had. We would not hesitate to recommend your agency to anyone who is interested in traveling to Peru and you are welcome to use us as a reference!
Now that we have visited Peru, we will be very interested and concerned about what happens in the future. Your lovely country's biggest asset is its people, who work very hard, especially physically, in the countryside.
All good wishes, especially for the New Year!
Corrinne and Michael,
Thank you for following up on our trip! We had an absolutely marvelous time!! All the arrangements you made for us turned out just perfectly. Our hotel in Santiago was a lot nicer than we expected- we had a beautiful suite (even if just for one night)! Our time in Cusco was quite memorable. We had a nice hotel, not far from the Plaza de Armas, and within walking distance of all the good restaurants and shopping. The day we spent in Sacred Valley was awesome, and Jose, our guide, did a nice job of leading us through that adventure. However, we cannot begin to tell you about the Awesomeness of GOD that we witnessed as we drove through the Andes- especially on our way up to Machu Picchu! To top it off, our wonderful guide, Fabricio, made Machu Picchu remarkable!! He guided us to the edge of the cliff; when we got there (with our eyes closed) and we opened them to see for the first time a view that we had only vaguely imagined it was a very emotional moment. We are most appreciative of you and your staff that made these experiences a memorable one for us. We hope, one day, to be able to return to Cusco, as it was truly the highlight of our 23 day adventure.
Thank you, and may our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus, bless you richly!!
Mel and Mary,
Juleen and I had a wonderful time in Peru. Thanks so much to you and
Peruforless. The personal touches that were provided by you and the staff at
Peruforless were remarkable. We really enjoyed meeting with you and your
wonderful parents in Lima. Cucsco, MachuPicchu, and the surrounding area were
breathtaking and inspiring. We are grateful to all the staff members for making
our trip productive and worry free. Special thanks to Louise, Carlos, and Maria.
Our Guides Darwin Comacho Pederes and Sylvia were passionate and informative,
and gave us an excellent insight to the history and beauty of Peru and the
people. I would highly recommend you and the services provided by Peruforless to
others, and plan to use them again myself.
Thanks so much for making this trip a vacation of a lifetime for Juleen and I.
Best wishes until we see you again.
Dave and Juleen,
We are back in Malta! We would like to thank you and your team for a most enjoyable vacation. Considering the many countries (Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil) we visited, and the 14 flights we took, all went well. Hotels were of a good standard with the 'Emperador' in Buenos Aires being exceptional value. We were always met on time by extremely competent guides. Transport used was always clean and comfortable. Once again, thank you for a great vacation and I will certainly recommend Peru For Less to those who would like a stress free holiday in South America.
