This as was our first time on a tour to Italy the Itinerary was full, lots of wonderful places, great food and the company knows how to see Italy in like 2 weeks! Even though the weather wasn't the best we saw a lot of history, churches and the beautiful countryside of Italy. I would recommend this Grand Tour of Italy if you want to see the best spots in Italy.

Thanks for the excellent stay in Cusco, Peru! Everything was fine, from the very first to the last minute; from all the guides, who were always kind and positive, to the drivers. I would highly recommend Machu Travel for its professionalism.

We just returned from our trip to Peru. I cannot tell you how incredible our trip was! We could have done it without them, but I am so incredibly glad we didn't. You could not ask for a better experience! All of our guides were so helpful and educational! Thank you all! I know I am missing someone but great thanks to Deslie for her quick and informative responses to all my emails. Thank you to Sol for helping us and telling us what to expect while we were in Cusco and Puno. Incredible thanks to our guides: Guilermo, Percy, Eddie and Juan. Huge thanks to all the drivers we had... no way we would have been able to pull off what they did. Truly... if you are ever going to Peru... going through Machu Travel Peru should be your go to organization.

About Go Ahead Tours

Go Ahead Tours offers guided group tours around the world and on all seven continents. With 25 years of experience, they've built up an impressive array of itineraries and guides. 

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Groups never number more than 35 and may be as few as 14. Go Ahead calls this their 'Right Size Advantage.' A number of specialty trips include food and wine tours, religious heritage tours, family tours, nature & wildlife tours, and walking tours. They will also take you to special events such as Oktoberfest in Germany, Carnival in Venice, or New England fall foliage tours. 

As part of EF, Education First, Go Ahead tours specialize in cultural immersion and making connections, whether with locals or other tour members. 

Go Ahead Tours also promises value: if you can find a similar tour at a cheaper price, they'll match it, making it a good choice for budget travelers.  

Who Travels With Them?

Go Ahead is based in the US, and thus attracts mostly American travelers to their trips. Their age range is varied, but most travelers tend to be middle aged.  

Where Do They Operate?

Go Ahead offers a wide array of trips to over 100 countries on all 7 continents. Popular destinations include Italy, France, and the United Kingdom. They also offer trips to South America, Asia, and Africa.  

Why Travel With Them?

Go Ahead is backed by EF, one of the largest travel companies in the US, so has extensive resources at hand when creating their itineraries. They also use a combination of a 'western' tour director plus a selection of local guides, giving the traveler a glimpse into local life while still maintaining quality and comfort. 

About Machu Travel Peru

Founded in 2011, the relatively new Machu Travel Peru is dedicated to providing sustainable travels through Peru.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They create customized itineraries suitable to numerous travel styles. Their guides are passionate and knowledgeable about Peruvian culture and this enthusiasm becomes a part of your tour. You will make your way to Machu Picchu learning of Peruvian history and customs. 

Who Travels With Them?

Travelers interested in learning about Peru from a historical and local perspective. Many of their trips go to Machu Picchu - for which it is advisable to be in generally good shape. 

Where Do They Operate?
