- Our Peru Trip - Sat, June 18, 2011 10:41 am
Pictures of our trip are on the Internet now at http://picasaweb.google.com/jay.gourley. The pictures in the album are arranged chronologically and each picture is tagged with geographic coordinates. You're welcome to download and use any of them. If you see anything I have identified incorrectly, please tell me. You did a great job as a tour operator. Please use me as a reference if that is helpful. You can also quote from this message on your web site if you like. I often travel in remote places, and I usually recommend people use one of the International tour operators like REI or GAP Adventures, instead of local tour operators, when planning a trip to a place they've never been. In my experience, local tour operators are only a little less expensive, are hard to reach, and usually know less about the tours they retail than the big international companies. But Inkatreks is an exception. You are accessible. Your prices are low. Your English is good. And your knowledge of tourists, trails, hotels and transportation is first-hand. And that's better than the service I expect from the big international companies. You've walked the trails in Peru in all kinds of conditions and you've been a guide. So you know what mistakes tourists are most likely to make. I learned all that in communication with you before I booked our Inca Trail tour and the Tambopata jungle tour. What came as a surprise was how careful you were coordinating our travel outside the two tours. I am used to tour operators sending me some written instructions on how to get from the airport to the tour. Your level of service better. You arranged five stays in three hotels for us. All were comfortable, conveniently located at low prices. You also met us at the airport and shuttled us from tour to hotel to tour. I never caught a cab, looked at a train or bus schedule or spoke to a hotel reservations clerk. Besides the money that saved us, avoiding that stress made the whole trip more fun. I'll be sure to tell my friends what a great job you did for us. You really understand Peru and you made a great effort to make sure every aspect of our trip was a success. Thanks.

En relacion al Camino Inca ha
sido una experiencia muy intensa. El paisaje es
sencillamente increible a cada paso y se requiere de mucha
fuerza de voluntad y determinscion para seguir avanzando.
Hacer este camino en grupo es muy bueno ya que permite
animarse a mas.
El servicio ha sido muy bueno, la comida tambien, variada y
sustanciosa. El guia nos ha trasmitido los datos necesarios
para comprender donde estabamos.
