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 spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you.

Excellent travel company. There were only 4 ladies traveling however, throughout the trip, we felt very safe and in good hands. Excellent accommodation, vehicles, sightseeing, guides and their followup care. The driver was very patient with our none ending shopping request. Would recommend to all
