Peru is an incredible country to experience. Full of the grandeur of past civilizations as
well as the cultural excitement of today's world. With so many things to see and do, I
wholeheartedly recommend Diana at Travel Andes. Her knowledge of the country
made travel effortless for our group of eight. From Machu Picchu to Spanish lessons
to home stays to transportation, Diana handled every detail of the trip so our time
could be spent absorbing the wonders of this enchanting land.
Washington, USA - January, 2010
Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu,
Nazca, Ballestas islands and magnificent
cities, such as Arequipa and Cusco...- the list
can be continued. The schedule of our visit
was very tight - we did not stay two nights in a
row in one hotel, but I wish we had more time
to visit other places. Thank you again for
helping us to arrange this great trip. I would
recommend Diana to anybody as a great
travel agent who never hesitates to make an
extra effort so her clients enjoy the trip and do
not worry about technicalities.
Let me tell you, we had a fabulous trip to Peru!! My entire family enjoyed the whole trip, from Machu Picchu to
Cusco to the beach at Colan, etc., etc.And I must tell you, your helpful guidance & local staff were a great part
of our enjoyable time. Edwin & Marlene were wonderful!! They went way over & beyond the call of duty in
many instances. They were prompt & very helpful right right away on Feb. 16; got us lined up & off to the right
start at the Sonesta. Please thank them - - again, from us! You were very attentive to all of our needs.
Gabriel's Yucay Trek was just right ("off the beaten path"); our entire family really, really liked Gabriel (and
Yucay!). The private tour of the Sacred Valley was also very, very good. In a nutshell, I would use your
services again and again. And I will recommend TravelAndes to many of our friends. Keep it up! So, we will
be in touch prior to our next trip to Peru or South America. Thank you, Diana!

We started planning our trip to Peru in January 2008. When we checked a tour package with another agency,
we found that it was too expensive. Through a mutual friend of ours we were introduced to Diana, the tour
operator of Travelandes. We let Diana know that we would like to cover Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu and the
Sacred Valley of Incas with the least cost and in a short span of 8 days. Diana worked with us in planning the
trip and came out with a cost which was far below the first packaged deal. After having planned the trip, Diana
and her colleagues, Edwin and Helen, did all the leg work for all the local tours by booking the air tickets and
doing the preliminary arrangements. Diana arranged for us to stay with local families in Cusco and Lima. The
families welcomed us with a warm heart and with enthusiasm which made us feel welcomed. Diana made it a
point to check on us every day to make sure that everything was being done as planned. The local tour guides
were very professional. Edwin received us at the Cusco airport, took us to our lodge and made sure that
we were picked up and dropped off for all the tours. Machu Picchu was the highlight of the tour for which we
took the backpacker train. In Lima Helen received us at the airport and took us to the lodge. Miraflores was
absolutely gorgeous and we enjoyed the beach and the city tour. Kudos to Diana for the wonderful job.

|The visit started with the Temple of the Sun, the principal religious center of the Incas. Afterwards, we visited the astonishing colonial Cathedral which
had more than 400 paintings of the school of Cuzco. From here we went by bus to visit the four ruins which were located at less than 8 kilometers from
Cuzco. These included Sacsayhuamán, famous for its enormous rocks; Q´enqo, Tambomachay and Puka Pukara, all splendid! And Machu Picchu,I
think that the photographs will show all that words cannot say! And we can summarize it well with one word - UNIQUE!
