We traveled with Latin Discoveries in April 2017 for a three week trip across Peru. We especially appreciated the wide variety of archaeological and historic sites that were proposed. The guide's interesting and precise explanations were very helpful. As our first Latin American discovery was a real delight, six months later, without hesitation, we contacted Latin Discoveries again, for our honeymoon, in Ecuador and to the Galapagos. The comfortable haciendas were very typical. and Andres, our guide, was absolutely fascinating during our trip on mainland Ecuador. The Galapagos cruise was of course the highlight of our honeymoon: the excursions, the ship and the crew were amazing! These were both unforgettable experiences in South America.

We have just returned from our trip and I want to let you now how satisfied we both were with all portions of the adventure. From the initial meeting at the airport in Cuzco to the final boarding in La Paz, the members of your team were with us. There was never a moment of a late arrival, a missed connection, or any time when we felt that our guides didn't have our interests at heart. It was a great trip and look forward to using you again when our travels take us south. Thank you

It was great to have Latin Discoveries plan our family travel to Peru. The email correspondence was timely and they try to tailor your itinerary to what you need. While in Peru, we felt taken care of by their staff.
We were in our own group with private transport and our own tour guide. My kids were 12 and 14 and they fully enjoyed the tour guide's explanation of all the different ruins.
Our favorite day was the day at Machu Picchu where we learned so much about the Inca civilization. We had a wonderful time and we would highly recommend Latin Discoveries' service!

All I can say is, our trip was just about as close to perfect as it could possibly be. All of the arrangements you made for us for hotels and activities were excellent. Johana, our guide in Lima, and Valentin, our guide for Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu, were both exceptional and amazing – they were both very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly, and their English is very good. Fabrizio, our guide for Arequipa and Colca Canyon, was also very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly.
The trip was absolutely fabulous – we particularly loved Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu, but we also thoroughly enjoyed Lima, Arequipa, Colca Canyon, and Hacienda de Ficus – wonderful things to see and great guides to show them to us. And the weather could not have been more perfect – great time to be in Peru, even with the World Bank and IMF there, which I am sure kept you all very busy. And thank you so much for the lovely dinner we had at Calle del Medio – we also had delicious meals at Gastón Acurio’s restaurants in Lima (Tanta in Miraflores) and Arequipa (Chicha). Great food, everywhere we went.
And, not to be forgotten, all of our drivers were great, amazing in fact, very skilled – Alberto in Lima at the beginning, Mr. Élard in Arequipa and Colca Canyon, Abel in Cusco and the Sacred Valley (and back to Cusco), and Ubaldo in Lima at the end. Riding with them was quite an adventure, and we trusted them completely.
The service provided by Latin Discoveries was beyond excellent, you did an absolutely terrific job putting the whole trip together, and I do wish I could have met you.
