I have to recommend SouthAmerican Travel to any one that is taking a tour to Peru or South America. My Dad and I went to Peru in April 2014 for 20 days. We found the site by chance on line and used their “create your own adventure” function and submitted it. We were contacted by Christina Schranz and she put a package together with everything we requested which included a 14 day tour of Peru from Lima to Cusco and then with a 5 day tour of the Amazon. She put the whole package together and we also asked for flights to be included and she found some for both our international fights and our connecting flights from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado and back to Lima. Christina was great and she replied to all our emails quickly and professionally. My Dad and I were very happy with here service and would recommend her to put any ones travel package together!

The tour itself was fantastic. We were very surprised when we arrived in Peru due to the fact that we weren’t expecting the treatment for a 3 star hotel package. We were treated like royalty we were picked up at the airport by a guide and usually a driver that took us from our hotel or airport to our next destination and gave us so much information about the area and the sites we were going to see.
The hotels were spectacular 3 star one hotel that did stand out was the Hotel El Mapi because it was far above average for a 3 star hotel with very nice rooms and a 3 course meal that was fantastic. The hotel staff was also very accommodating and helped us with all our needs. The only exception was in Cusco at the Terra Andina which was a disappointment both due to prices and poor room standards.

We had so many amazing tour guides and drivers I would like to name a few:
Christine Berg was a great when we first arrived and the city tour of Lima was very good and informative before we left.
Rosa Garcia was an amazing guide and we enjoyed the time and information she gave us thanks for the fun time and we will always remember the sand buggy ride!!
Wilfredo Ccalla was a very informative guide in Arequipa and showed us a very beautiful city.
Turismo Mer was one of the best bus drive/site seeing tours because it broke up the long drive with some cool attractions and a beautiful stop for lunch.
Raul from Export tours was our guide for the sacred valley, the Pisac ruins and visiting Ollantaytambo he was a very informative guide and very passionate about his culture and his job.
Martin Carrillo was a very informative about Quechua culture and the history of Machu Picchu and he was also very good a showing us amazing places up on Machu Picchu and some of the sacred places.
Enzo was a very amazing guide for us in the Tambopata National Reserve and river. He was very fun to be with and showed us some very cool animals and trails in the jungle. He was a very amazing person and my best wishes for him.

The Tambopata Research center was a fantastic facility with beautiful rooms and great services. The researchers were also very knowledgeable and great to be around.
I would like to thank you and all the amazing tour operators that we had the opportunity to travel with and the chance to meet these amazing people.

SouthAmerican Travel put together an amazing trip that was well laid out and hotels that were one notch above grade. Thank you for an amazing tour and wish all the guides we met the best.

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.
