Essential Peru

This tour gave me a fantastic insight into a very beautiful and diverse country. From the wildlife to the dessert and the lakes to the mountains, each day was different with new things to see and do.

Essential Peru

Essential Peru features an excellent itinerary and is well carried out on a comfortable bus with ample comfort and food stops. The gradual ascent into the highlands enables one to gradually get used to the altitude. There were more than a few early departures, but the rewards were great! Exodus fulfilled all its' promises. Airport pickup and drop off were accomplished with no inconvenience. The hotels used on the trip were well beyond the bare bones that I was expecting. It was a wonderful experience!

Highly recommended (but be prepared for the long journeys!)

All of the reviews of this trip are consistent in one thing - you will spend a lot of time on the road, but Peru is huge country and there is a lot to see so this shouldn't come as a surprise! I loved this trip - its varied, with a great mix of town and country and plenty to see and do. I personally found the altitude to be challenging at times but due to the mix of going high and coming down lower found this became easier as the trip progressed. The coaches used were very comfortable and the hotels were clean, comfortable and when in the cities well appointed for the town centres. Those in more rural areas were beautifully appointed.

Essential Peru

This trip covers a huge amount in a short space of time. The scenery through the Andes is breathtaking and other highlights included Cusco, Macchu Picchu and the homestay on Amantani Island-basic but adequate. There were a significant number of early starts and long bus journeys. Some of the toilets were undesirable and it was difficult to obtain lunch-best to organise a packed lunch before leaving. I would recommend about $1000 American for meals and daily expenses. At times the tour guide gave insufficient information. On the whole a truly unique and memorable experience.

Essential Peru

This was a component of my 6 weeks in Peru. It was long drives in the bus but you got to see the countryside of a Peru in detail. I felt like this was explained and I was prepared however some other people found the bus travel too long.

Wonderful but hard work

On this trip you get to see some wonderful things but it is very tiring with lots of very early starts and long coach journeys. The days at altitude are quite draining.

ESSENTIAL PERU

A very interesting and varied trip, though more tiring than we had expected. Our tour guide/leader was absolutely superb.

ESSENTIAL PERU

The whole tour was amazing-I really don't think we could have seen as much or experienced Peru by doing it ourselves. Our guide (Marcial) was amazing and all of the hotels were so much better than I had expected. The tour did involve early starts, but this was necessary to get the most out of the final destinations for the day by arriving at most places by mid-afternoon. Long days in the coach are also required, but they flew by with multiple stops for photos, comfort breaks and food.
