From the hiking - to the food and our accommodations. everything was done beautifully. The people of Peru had a special impact on me. Our guide Leo had more spirit and knowledge that I could have imagined. We were all pushed to our limits. Johan and Roger made our trip. I came home and booked again for the Fall - enough said!

We loved every moment of the journey. The guides were knowledgeable, friendly and a joy to be around. The lodges are beautiful and comfortable. The food was incredible.
While Machu Picchu was the eventual goal, it was just one of a number of highlights. It was a memorable experience that I whole-heartedly recommend.

"This Peru travel agency planned and booked a custom trip for me and my wife to Peru in October 2015. The trip included a short stay in Lima, and almost a week in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Their service was outstanding. The planning for the trip was perfect, and we relied entirely on them as we had not been to Peru before. They also went beyond the call of duty by getting a reservation at a good hotel in Lima even though there was a huge convention of the world bank in town at the time. They persisted until they found a cancellation. they even booked two good restaurants for us in Lima. The guides they provided were also excellent, including one who was truly outstanding.

I never would have located this company except through Zicasso. Two years ago we made a trip to Brazil and we looked and looked for a travel agency of this kind and never did find one. I would highly recommend using Zicasso to find the appropriate agency if you are traveling somewhere that you have not previously been to, or if you do not have an agency you are satisfied with."

        About Mountain Lodges of Peru

        For more than a decade, Mountain Lodges of Peru have provided in depth cultural experiences for visitors to Peru’s most famous site: Machu Picchu.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        They focus solely on bringing travelers to Machu Picchu, on two major treks: Salkantay or the Lares. Truly integrating the local communities of Peru into their missions and activities, they are the perfect choice for supporting local operations and learning about the history and culture of the area from a local perspective.

        Who Travels With Them?

        A trek to Machu Picchu, especially along these two trails, is not for the faint of heart. Treks are between 4 and 7 days, and the altitude can be very challenging for some. But don’t despair! Average builds and physical fitness levels travel to Machu Picchu regularly, and your guides are well trained to help you on your way.

        Where Do They Operate?

        As their name suggests, Mountain Lodges of Peru is a Peru based operator, specializing in the countries regions. They operate tours to and from Machu Picchu along two major treks. 

        Why Travel With Them?

        For an integrated travel experience where your experience will introduce you to the indigenous cultures of Peru on a deeper level. 

        About Lost World Adventures

        Founded in 1987, Lost World Adventures offers private and customized trips to South and Central America and Antarctica.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        Your guide will get to know you before beginning to plan your customized experience. If you want to have a relaxing beach vacation, they can arrange that. Or if you’d rather hike up the adrenaline, they are able to offer that as well.

        Who Travels With Them?

        They accommodate anyone from honeymooners to large groups. Trips are generally in middle price range - you won’t find tremendously budget items here, but they do their best to craft a trip based on all factors, price included.

        Where Do They Operate?

        They are focused in South and Central America, with a variety of trips from beach vacations to Costa Rica, food tours in Argentina, or Machu Picchu adventures. They are also among the few small companies providing cruises to Antarctica.

        Why Travel With Them?

        For the variety of trip type and theme you can choose from. They have food and wine tours, adventure tours, beach getaways, and cruises - all of which are customizable to your likes and dislikes. If you’d prefer not to overly customize, they have pre-set itineraries as well.
