My husband and I had an excellent experience with Cultural Immersions from the moment we called the agency and inquired about the tour. We worked closely with Hannah (via email) who carefully helped us plan an incredible (and stress free) journey. She was detailed and answered every question during the planning of this wonderful trip. Upon arrival, we were immediately taken care of! Our main guide was Willow, and he was a fun-loving local expert on Peru! We never had to worry about the itinerary because Willow always provided us with guidance and insight on everything that was planned. We also had a kind-hearted tour driver Cayetano. Willow and Cayetano were a great team and kept our trip fun and exciting! Throughout the trip, we truly enjoyed how the tour was "off the beaten path" and meeting many locals made our experience more authentic and culturally immersed us for sure. Thanks to Cultural Immersions we have made many lifelong memories of Peru. Absolutely loved it!
We truly enjoyed our trip to Peru. I normally prefer to book everything myself, but this time we traveled with 7 people, ranging from 3 to 70 years old, and it seemed hard to manage the logistics in Peru. The itinerary Cultural Immersion planned for us was perfect for all, and they had clearly listened to our preferences. Because everything was so well-planned we didn't waste any time, and the excellent guides made sure we saw and experienced as much as possible. It was a stress-free holiday, even though, looking back, it feels like we have done and seen so much. It was an unforgettable trip for all of us!
Who hasnt dreamt of a trip to Peru and discovering the sacred valley and Machu Picchu and other amazing Inca or pre-Inca sites? I know I have been dreaming of this trip since I was a kid. Yet, planning a trip to a foreign country might be a bit stressful when you are pressed for time and yet there is nothing appealing to me in joining a mainstream tour group where you have limited time to take in and understand the local culture, with no interactions with the locals. And well, Im of the age where leaving for a few weeks with a backpack is not quite an option either. I was really fortunate to discover cultural immersion and letting the cultural immersion staff plan my trip within Peru and letting their guides and drivers show me around was definitely the way to go. Everything on the trip was planned perfectly: the sites seeing, the places to stay but more importantly you get a personal attention so youll learn a lot about the history but also about the local customs and the way of life and thats what made this trip so extraordinary and so memorable. Excellent planning, excellent guides, excellent drivers, excellent lodging, excellent food, the sites visited were amazing and the planned local interactions made the difference: lunch with a local family in their home, stopping by a local chicheria and playing a traditional game, having trout prepared for you at lake Titicaca ..In a nutshell: the best trip I have ever had and the experience is going to be hard to beat. Thank You Cultural Immersion. Thank You Monique, Eduardo, Daniel and the rest of the gang.
The first part in Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu was fantastic. The hotels were great! Besides the ruins we also got to see many neat things that were totally unexpected. The visit to Mr. Kintu's house and shop was such a treat. The walk to the rain forest near Aguas Calientes was fantastic with many different kinds of plants (ferns and orchids, as well as wild begonia, etc.) to enjoy. It also helped us to appreciate the land besides Machu Picchu without having to walk the Inca Trail. Best of all, our guide -Daniel was very adaptable to our need and made this a very memorable trip. Ernesto was very nice eventhough we could not understand each other much. Please tell him that I am sorry he had 20 points taken from his driver license for trying to accommodate my interest in visiting the local market in one of the towns. The Monasterio Hotel was right in the middle of the City of Cusco and very convenient for seeing many things in the city. The hotel was kind of old but the service was first class. Too bad we had only one night there, otherwise we would have gone to see some more interesting places. We also like the quick visit to the Inca Museo.
From the planning that went really easy and with helpful tips before we even get there up until our departure, everything went according to plan. Our tour guide Alberlo was really nice and weve appreciated that he would wait for us when we wanted to either try a drink at the Cusco Market or see lamas at Sacsayhuaman. The tours allowed for a take your time pace so we could really appreciate what we could see, smell or taste!! Our trip to Machu Picchu with Marco as a guide was really impressive as well. Having done my research before going to Peru, it was nice to listen to Marcos stories about the Incas and you could really see his admiration about the Incas. But even if I wouldnt have done any research before going to Peru, both tour guides knew what they were talking about and gave us plenty of details. One thing thats great with booking with you guys is that you have done an awesome job in coordinating the visit of the main places we wanted to see in Cusco. I have to admit that our trip was really short and sweet but weve capture the best of the Incas empire with your help. Also, the room we had in Cusco was perfect with this nice view of the city with all the copper colored roofs. THANKS to all the team at Cultural Immersion!!
