I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

The trip was one of the best trips we've done. Machu travel did a great job from logistics on airport, bus transfers, hotels are in the center of town, excursions were very organized, staff were there for us to take care of our needs, tour guides were very knowledgeable. Thank you!

We have had wonderful vacations with Uncommon Journeys. Tours are "spot on" in descriptions and the results EXCEED expectations. The professional tour guides are superb in trains, motor coaches and on cruise ships. They become, like most of the tour groups members, friends ( some result in long term friendships). U.J.'s CEO has appeared on our vacations in the least expected places and shares a segment of the tour with us.
We believe this tour company provides excellent products, superb guides and VALUE that often are uncommon in this segment of the business world.
We eagerly await out next vacation with Uncomon Journeys.
