I've seen a number of positive reviews for Aracari Travel, and I don't want to totally discount a recent trip to Peru using Aracari. We had a nice trip, but encountered some unexpected issues along the way. Aracari provides an emergency phone number to call when an emergency occurs. We didn't encounter any emergencies until the end of our trip. Our flight home was cancelled in the middle of the night. We had trouble with our phones trying to get in contact our previous hotel in the area, so we reached called the emergency line. We asked if they could help us contact the hotel, but we were told that was the airline's problem. We weren't asking for Aracari to pay for the hotel, just for help to contact our prior hotel to see if they had any vacancies before we took a cab there. We didn't receive any help from Aracari on this at all--we never heard back from them. The odd part of this was on the way to the airport to return home, we rode with the emergency contact, Raul, and heard how business wasn't about the money to him, but rather making sure people were taken care of while in Peru. We found it odd that hours after hearing this, the response to our emergency was totally different. It was very disheartening. Maybe we were a one-off time this happened, but I would want to know about this if I were searching for a travel company to trust while traveling, and especially regarding a company that claims "luxury meets authenticity".

We encountered additional flukes such as an unexpected hotel cost, incomplete packing information, and a missed opportunity in the rainforest. I suppose no trip is perfect, but these also put a damper on our trip.

As I state above, I don't want to totally discount our trip. We enjoyed the site seeing as well as the excellent guides, drivers, and experiences. After paying thousands of dollars, we were disappointed with being left in the dark.

Professional travel services. The only way to experience Peru!
Our family of 5 adults had a fantastic time in Peru and visiting Machu Picchu. We had no worries and even ran into a passport issue which the Aracari Team efficiently and quickly helped us resolve. Simply fantastic!

My mom and I just came back from an incredible trip to Bolivia with Aracari. Our travel planner, Erika, was incredibly professional, quick to reply and accommodating even before arriving, and planned a great itinerary for us. It was a pretty packed schedule, but we don't feel like we missed anything in La Paz or Uyuni/Siloli Desert. The places we visited and the information we received from the guides in both parts of the trip exceeded expectations and it's all still sinking in as we go through the hundreds of surreal photos we were able to take. We are extremely pleased with the week and will never forget our time in Bolivia thanks to Aracari! GRACIAS por una experiencia inolvidable :)

We tried Indian Cuisines at Old Delhi with some lip smacking street food. Guide named Prateek was exceptionally well in the knowledge about the monuments. Overall, It was a nice trip and we are taking lifetime memories from India. Will surely recommend Go hikes to our friends & relatives. Love from Sydney, Australia.
