Aracari travel earns my gold-plated five star rating. Our recent trip for four people was flawless. The guides were terrific, and the home office kept in touch throughout our trip. I requested "boutique" hotels and was thrilled with their recommendations.

Aracari is a first class travel agency.

Maybe a little steep for some, but great anyway.

Aracari es más que una agencia de viajes, efectivamente es un servicio pesonalizado de recomendaciones sobre los lugares y espacios más exclusivos del pais, cuenta con un staff de primera que trabaja en forma muy exhaustiva en los servicios de proveedores finales que usa, lo que hace que todas sus recomendaciones sean satisfactorias al 100%.

We agree. Our "Trip of the Century" earlier this year was indeed the trip of a life time. Our only challenge, how to find time to go back to Peru so that we can use Aracari again and again

Just returned from a trip to Lima/Sacred Valley/Cuzco/Machu Picchu. Aracari's professionals made the trip a unique experience, helped us navigate through the airport hassles in Peru, provided an amazing guide in Maria Teresa Vera Flores, and ensured all went smoothly. Wouldn't think of driving the roads of Peru without Aracari behind the wheel!

I had no idea how much undivided attention we would get from Aracari guides and handlers. Amazing service. Helped to tailor a specific itinerary to our needs that resulted in an amazing trip through Peru. A fantastic experience.

I have used the services of Aracari Travel twice over the last five years. Eight of us got together for the first trip (Lima to Machu Picchu, and places in between) and Aracari organized an awesome trip based on all our varied needs and requirements. For the second trip, Aracari recommended a great boat for a girlfriend and me to see the Galapagos and organized all the transfers. I am looking forward to using their services again. A trip with Aracari is a no worries trip.

Aracari's travel specialists created the perfect first class itinerary for our family and I wouldn't have changed a thing! From Inkaterra's Reserva Amazonica in the Amazon rainforest, to Sol y Luna lodge in the Urubamba Valley, to Inkaterra Logde Machu Picchu to Hotel Monasterio in Cusco, we were in the lap of luxury. Our guide ,Fernando, in Cusco was an unbelievable guide for us and took such good care of us, we had a hard time saying goodbye! The extra money spent was well worth not having to worry about a thing, we just rolled along trusting they would provide the best experience possible, and they delivered beyond our expectations!

THANK YOU!!!

Just returned from a 7 day trip to the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco and Lima... and our experience with Aracari was nothing short of excellent.

Our travel agent put together the perfect itinerary and our guides were friendly and knowledgeable. From the moment we arrived, everything was handled perfectly between airport shuttles, hotels, domestic flights, tickets, sight-seeing, etc.

I absolutely 100% recommend using Aracari's services. They made the trip exceptional.

Aracari did an excellent job of handling all of the transition points in our recent trip to the Galapagos, Sacred Valley and the Amazon. Guides were great, hotels with two exceptions were terrific and the support all the way through our many plane, van and boat trips was exemplary. Highly recommend them. Two exceptioins were as follows; Casa Andina Plaza in Cusco- we arrived at 10pm and did not get our plaza view room which we had paid for and instead got a room overlooking the busiest street in Cusco, non stop traffic all night. Not a moment of decent sleep. At my insistence they moved us to the plaza view room the next morning, it was fine. Next: absolute disaster in the Amazon at the Pantiacolla Lodge. No Hot Water and the room and bathroon were beyond substandard, avoid this place at all costs.

Aracari are the best travel people for Peru and Ecuador. We were always impressed with the knowledge of the guides, the sites, transportation, the restaurants, the hotels, and shopping.

Lima's Country Club with breakfast was picture-perfect. Guide Maria Nunez took us to Saqra for lunch-fantastic and cocktails at Casa Aliaga should not be missed. This was when we were introduced to pisco sours, a favorite drink in Peru.

Cusco we stayed at Sol y Luna- a true flower show and well-appointed cottages. Our guide, Adriel Vilcas, is of Inca descent and was well versed in Inca history. He paced our group of 4 with moderate climbing to Sun Gate and eating. The stay at Machu Picchu Sanctuary was worth the 1 year planning with Cecile Fabre. The Hiram Bingham train ride to Cusco should not be missed.

In Cusco stayed at Casa Cartagena a wonderful boutique hotel with fantastic breakfast, tea time, & cocktail hour. We loved the whirlpool and steam room. Adriel took us to dine on guinea pig-delicious.

Quito's Swissotel is 5 * and eat at La Choza a block from the hotel with live music.

The Cormorant Catamaran in the Galapagos was roomy with 8 cabins and the staff was always ready to serve. Our cabin was cleaned before we came back from breakfast. They glued my shoe back together when I broke it onshore. Every excursion (2 a day) ended with a fresh fruit drink and a small bite of food. Duncan, the naturalist, would give a talk each evening about the animals we would see the next day. It was

another great adventure we will cherish due to Aracari's dedicated staff that made our trip exceptional.
