I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful Peruvian experience. We
all had an amazing time through all the tours. The daily & nightly
excursions throughout Cusco were a lot of fun to experience. We visited
a college that partners with one of our colleges here in the US -
Broward, Florida. The city tours were exceptional! The sacred valley and
its people were beautiful. We enjoyed learning about the valleys and
peaceful life. Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu were breathtaking. Huayna
Picchu was quite the hike….but we made it to the top! Peru is a
beautiful country! All transfers were exceptional and all guides were
very passionate about their country and sharing their history. It was
truly an unforgettable trip. Thank you so much for all your help in
making our trip a positive memorable one.

Hi Yenseng. Just wanted to let you know that we had a really awesome
trip. Everything was so well organized and scheduled that we were able
to just relax and enjoy the trip. When Diego arrived with our tickets
for Macchu Pichu, I told my fiancé that it was almost more organized
than I am!!!
Anyway, excellent job, hotels were awesome, guides were excellent.

I am writting to you to share my opinion about our stay in your Country.
First of all, I want to thank you for your assistance in preparing our
beautiful trip. You did fantastic job. All tours have been organized
very well. All transfers were right on time. Hotels were nice.
I am very much interested in the history and trip to Peru, visiting most
important Inca's sites has been extremely exciting experience for me. My daughter also enjoyed all tours and was very excited having pictures
taken with lamas in Machu Picchu. All guides were very knowledgeable and
We also enjoyed Peruvian food. In Cusco restaurant we have eaten
Peruvian specialty - guinea pig. Cusco is a fantastic city with
extraordinary atmosphere of past and present times. Machu Picchu is a
wonder of the world.
Fantastic tour in Sacred Valley, train trip from Cusco to Machu Picchu
all were FANTASTIC experiences.
Luis, we thank you for this visit in your beautiful Country. We bought a
lot of Peruvian souvenirs. My best are: Inca warrior and black puma made
out of Machu Picchu stone.
My daughter tells all her friends about our trip and some people asking
about information regarding to organizing all tours and accommodations.
Obviously, if you do not mind, I want to recommend you and Peru Gateway
I’ll give people your e-mail address so they can contact you regarding
to visits in your country.

Thank you very much for organizing our exciting trip to Peru. Everything
was flawless and we enjoyed our trip tremendously. Accomodations were
excellent, food was good, and program was just right for us to get
adjusted to the altitude. We did a great a deal of going up and down at
Matchu Picchu. Train ride was a riot, haha, on the way back the train
attendants organized a fashion show, which was so entertaining that we
had to but a nice dress.
You kept your promise about the trip and how nice it would be!
All the best!

Hi Yenseng Yong,
This is Alina- nice to write to you again. Recently we came back from our
long five countries vacation, which included Amazon tour and Titicaca lake
tours. I want to say that both tours were interesting and very good
organized. We love the jungle tour- we learn a lot about jungle and animals,
and trees,and birds. We saw six different kind of monkeys, went for Macaws,
saw capybaras, swimming tapir, some jungle awesome birds.... Our guide knew
almost everything about the jungle- every day we learn some new things about
Tambopata. The food was good, the room was clean, the stuff was great! We
liked it so much!
Titicaca lake tour also was organized very well - when we came to our hotel,
the girl name Marina call and asked for me- we talked and she said the she
will be in our hotel shortly( to gave some instruction about our trip). So,
she came, explained everything, gave me contact phone numbers- no problem.
Next evening , after the Titicaca lake tour, Marina came back at evening and
asked if everything was OK. We had no problem with the tour- it was good(
the only one thing we don"t like - the boat was very slow, it took forever
to go from main land to the islands- but all boats there are very slow do to
high altitude). Anyway, after Titicaca lake tour on the next day we had
Chucuito July+Pomata +Sullustany+Airport - thats was excellent too- we had a
privet tour(nobody else considered it)- so we walked in our speed and saw a
lot, stopped in some interesting places. Our guide was very smart , polite
and had great attitude+ huge knowledge. And our driver was cool even he
didn"t speak english. So again we really like the tour. So far, both
Tambopta and Titicaca tours went very well and I would recommend your agency
to my friends if they decide to visits Peru.
Best regards Alina

Dear Mr Yenseng Yong,
We have returned to Australia from our trip to Peru and Chile. We would like to
thank you very much for the organisation of the 5-day tour to Cusco/Machu Picchu/Sacred
We have never booked a tour through the internet before and we were a little
nervous that everything would be as advertised. However, the tour was the best
prepared and most organised tour we have ever been on. Every transfer from
airport/hotel/train, etc was EXACTLY on time. We were rung every night to remind
us of our pick-up times and we were rung if the driver was going to be 5 minutes
late. Everyone was so friendly and polite. We must make special mention of our
guide in Machu Picchu, Carina, who was a fantastic person, fluent in both
Spanish and English, and she walked at my pace. It was a very good idea to have
a private guide
I would highly recommend your tour to any of my friends and family. Thank you
again for your advice and help in putting this tour together for us. The
efficient and friendly people made our trip so much more enjoyable.

Good morning Yenseng,
Just a note to thank you for doing such an exceptional job coordinating
all the pickups etc. that we needed to complete our trip from the ship
to Machu Picchu and back to our ship. It was a fantastic excursion and
both myself and my husband really enjoyed Machu Picchu, and experience
that we will remember for years to come.

Luis, I just wanted to write and thank you and Peru Gateway
Travel for planning a wonderful trip to Cusco, the Inka Trail and Machu Picchu.
I must say that everything was well planned and worked out perfectly. The Hotel
accommodation was excellent, the staff was very helpful, and the location was
great. The Cusco city tour was perfect and we definitely would not have been
able to explore and learn so much about the history of the area on our own. They
even kept communication with us after we decided to stay some extra time on our
own in Cusco to relax after the trek and ensured we had airport transportation
for our departure which I didn’t think was necessary since we extended our stay
on our own.
This was one of the most wonderful trips I have ever been on and I believe I
have Peru Gateway Travel to thank for it. I will be sure to recommend your
company to any friends planning trips to Peru in the future and when time
permits I will provide a positive Trip Advisor review as well.
Take care and thank you for a wonderful vacation.

Wanted to write and thank you so very much for the wonderful excursion you
prepared for us to go to Cusco and Machu Picchu. Everything was
perfect and went without a hitch. You even arranged for us to have beautiful
weather for us, especially while we were at Machu Picchu.
You can be sure that I have already given your name out to others on the cruise
who was interested in touring Peru. I am very pleased to also tell others of
your expertise in planning our amazing vacation. We will be sure to contact you
again for our future travels.

My husband and I would like to thank you and your organisation for a
memorable trip to Peru. Even though we only had 12 days available, you
arranged the tour in such a way that we had time to see everything with
some much needed "down" time in between. We also appreciate the fact
that we were able to book our own internal flights at our convenience.
All our transfers were perfectly managed, and we were kept informed each
step of the way. Special thanks go to Gustav and Paula in Lima, who did
our transfers there. The tour guides spoke good English, and were
informative and helpful. We had a really good time with Marco on our Ica/Nazca/Paracas
tour. The hotel in Lima - Ibis Larco - was modern, clean and comfortable.
Hotel Villa Jazmin in Ica was like an oasis in the desert - such a pity
we only had one night's stay. Hotel Rumi Punku in Cusco was fabulous and
we enjoyed our 3 nights' stay, despite suffering from "altitude sickness".
Sadly, we were not aware until our departure that the hotel had an
oxygen tank available for guests, which would have alleviated some of
the discomfort. (Our only "complaint" is that the tour guide on the
Cusco tour dropped us far from our hotel, so we had quite a distance to
walk in the
rain.) Naturally, Machu Picchu was the highlight of the whole trip. We
just sorry that we couldn't have been able to stay at least 2 days. Our
"rain forest" trip with Jorge up the Tambopata River was an adventure,
and although we didn't see as much as we expected, we had a good time.
The clay lick "Collpa" was very enlightening. Accommodation at the Wasai
Eco Lodge was basic - as expected - but very comfortable. We were the
only guests at the time, so we got 5 star treatment.
We hope to come back to Peru one day, in which case we will definitely
contact Cosmic Travel. In the mean time, we will recommend you to our
Thank you again, and may God bless you.

YenSeng and everyone,
Thanks for a great trip, my three weeks in
Peru was awesome. Although my
transportation was confusing in Lima, the entire trip was great. At each
stop there was always someone there to meet me
and take care of my needs. I
am surprised and amazed with your service. I
have to name someone in particular, CHEMU
(spelling) a driver in Nasca. Before I continue all the
guides and drivers really loved their jobs and
each one should be praised.
Getting back to Chemu in Nasca, after my tour he
and the tour guide dropped me off at my
hotel. After about 1 - 2 hours later I was working on the computer and suddenly
I see Chemu by my side. He asked me if I forgot
anything in his taxi, which I replied, "NO!"
Again he asked if I forgot
something, again I said, "I don"t think so!"
Then suddenly he shows me my camera, WOW! What else is there to say. Maybe I
was lucky, but the
majority of my contact with all Peruvians has
been met with such hospitality and friendliness, thank!
Before I used your service I was one who
planned my entire trip. For some reason I
decided to use a travel service. WOW, all the little things,
getting transportation, hotels, tours and other
travel details that I usually and takes lots of time was taken care of by you,
so all I had to do
was show up and have a great time. I always
liked to plan out my own trip
because I alway felt that I did the trip myself, but after your service, the
major things I mentioned was handled smoothly by you. I know I could"ve
have done it, but it would of been lots of work.
Again thank you for excellent work and service.
Each place was different and very unique and I
enjoyed all. My trip to your
country was fantastic and I hope to return soon. I have no doubt I will use
your services again.

Our trip was FANTASTIC!!!! You did an outstanding job. We loved every part of it.
The hotels in the Sacred Valley and Cusco were nicer than any hotels I have ever
stayed in the the USA! The tour guides were great. At Machu Picchu there were no
English speaking guides available so we had a private tour in Spanish--but since
Peruvian Spanish is so pure and clear we understood every word (I think I
mentioned we live near the Mexican border so know a fair amount of
conversational Spanish). Now my daughter is settled in with a lovely Peruvian
family in Cusco and enrolled in the Spanish school where she can improve her
Spanish even further.
I will send in the evaluation form of our trip but just wanted to let you know
how wonderful it was.

My husband and I had an immensely enjoyable vacation in February, thanks
to you, your superior tour company's operators, guides and drivers--all
very friendly, courteous, prompt, and knowledgeable. Every attention to
detail was paid to our customized tour of Machu Picchu, Cusco, Pisac and
Lima. It was fantastic to experience your beautiful country, it's
people and culture. Everyone should experience Peru! For us, it was a
wonderful, lifetime experience, and we will come back. We are

I would like to thank you and everyone at Peru Gateway for making our trip to
Peru so enjoyable and memorable.
The whole trip was wonderful and to find fault would be to seek out trivial
The staff who met us at airports were prompt and very helpful, as were those who
transported us to the trips we had planned.
The guides were all wonderful, each in their one way adding so much to our
understanding of the history and culture of Peru.
The hotels used were great, the Sonesta in Lima and that in Puno were very
comfortable and the staff in the hotels were excellent.
The lunches provided during the tours were excellent, particularly that provided
during the Sacred Valley tour.
Our only regret is that because of the limited time we had most days were so
full of activity that we were not able to just sit back and enjoy Peru. In
particular we regret not allowing ourselves a free morning or afternoon to savor
the delights of old Lima. However an unexpected bonus was the spare time we had
in Puno prior to pick up for transport to Juliaca airport. This allowed us to
savor just sitting by Lake Titicaca and to explore the Yavari ship moored near
the Hotel. This was an unexpected delight and we would recommend a visit to the
Yavari for any tourist staying in Puno.
Our first visit to Peru has only made us realize just how much there is to see
and do in Peru, and we confident we will be back to explore more.
We would thoroughly recommend Peru Gateway to anyone planning a trip to Peru,
and have already done so on Trip Advisor.
OOnce again thank you for making our first visit to Peru so wonderful. It was
everything we anticipated and so much more.

Just wanted to let you know how perfect our trip was. Thank you so much
for all of your work and coordination. Each meet and greet, transfer,
tour, etc was great. Your representatives were always on time and very
pleasant. I would especially like to thank Oscar who was our guide for
the Cusco City tour and the Sacred Valley full day tour. He was
absolutely wonderful. He was knowledgable, had a great sense of humor
and his English was very good. You are very lucky to have him working
with your organization and I would highly recommend him for future
clients. Corazon who took us to the airport for our departure was also
very helpful. She made sure that our bags were checked and that we were
all checked in as well.
Again thank you very much and I hope to use your services in the future
for my own travel clients visiting Peru.

I just wanted to let you know what a great time we had
on our trip. We felt taken care of every step of the way and appreciated the
care that your agents took from meeting us at the airport (so we didn't have to
barter for taxi fare), calling our hotel to confirm details for the next day or
giving us the tickets that we needed so that we didn't get overwhelmed.
I will highly recommend you in the future to anyone travelling to Peru.
The only recommendation that I would give for tourists taking the sacred valley
tour before heading to Macchu Picchu is to stop at the temple in Ollantaytambo
and maybe meeting up with the tour for the final stop.
Great trip and thank you very much!!!

returned from our travels in Peru, and had a wonderful time. I want to thank you
very much for all your help, especially when my husband wasn't feeling well in
Puno, and you helped us rearrange our tour plans. All the tour guides and
coordinators were professional, courteous, friendly, and always prompt. The
highlight of the trip for me was walking the last part of the Inca Trail and
coming upon Machu Picchu at the end of the day when all was still and quiet.

the tour operators and guides was especially notable. Our airport
transfers and tour pick-ups were always on time. The sites we visited

Dear Mayra and Jorge
We had a magnificent tour of Ecuador Galapagos Machu Picchu and Santiago in May
thanks to your wonderful tour arrangements and bookings.
It was great to be met at each airport with a personal sign of our own, amongst
a sea of faces. All of your agents were reliable and friendly, and contact phone
numbers were answered when we had airline delays and changes.
The tours to the above destinations were memorable and the tour people of each
country we visited in South America made our stay very pleasant.
All hotels were excellent, especially in Quito, and the Galapagos Legend cruise
ship was a first class experience.
Thank you once again

I wish to thank you for the travel plans.
The only problems were the hotel in Macchu Picu with the rooster waking us up at
1am, 3am, and 5am, and not knowing which airlines was flying us out to the
Galapagos. It was kind of scary when we asked for out tickets, and being told
that there was no record of us traveling, until my son found out that we were at
the wrong airline (we were told by the guide to go to counter 3, and it was
counter 8 that was our airline).
The islands you sent us to were a wonderful experience! The guide was
informative, and the lunches were very good. The Hotel Silverstein was very
nice, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the food was good.
The food in Peru, especially the buffet at the restaurant in the Sacred Valley
was wonderful. The best restaurant which my family raved about was the one in
the Sacred Valley. Please send all your visitors to that one!
They will love you for it! My children and I could not stop talking about it.
My daughter and I went to explore the old town part of Lima on out last day, and
had a wonderful experience seeing the military band perform in front of the
church, and seeing the fair.
I appreciated the fact that your contacts were following us when the plane had
electrical problems, and knew about our delays. It was good knowing that you
knew what was happening to us.
I appreciated all the guides you gave us.
I did become sick with altitude sickness in Cusco. The tea did not help. I
drank several cups of it. One of the tourist recommended the white/red capsules
which worked well, but took time. I would recommend that future tourist see
their doctor before coming to Cusco for a script of Diamox, if they can have it
to reduce the likelihood of this happening to them. My daughter had a slight
case, but my son was not affected by it. I should have asked the hotel for
We did take a side excursion to Isabella with another agency on Sunday, and that
was not a wise choice, for the sea was too choppy, and the boat had problems.

We have been back to Bangkok already. I just want to send you this mail to thank
you for your excellent program arrangement and coordination. Apart from minor
incoordination about the dinner, all other part of our trip are pleasant,
enjoyable and exciting!
We have been warned many times about traveling to Peru. However, everything was
higher than our expectation. Peoples were friendly. The trip was safe and well
coordinated. The accommodations were above standard of 3 stars hotels. Polices
were everywhere around tourist places and they were helpful. The food were good
especially the ceviches. Moreover, places we visited were very impressive
especially Machu Pichu, Arequipa, Puno and Cusco.
We have not climbed the Huayna Pichu as expected because my friend had been
there in April and he told me not to do so (He is above 70 years old). However,
we had been at Machu Pichu during sunrise and spent 7 hours there, including
walking to the Inca's bridge and the sun gate and were really impressed.

We had a great time in Cusco/MachuPichu. All the arrangements and connections
worked very well. The Gateway to Peru agents were all extremely good and
professional. The only criticism we have is the hotel in Agua Calientes was
poor. No Hot water at all for the time we were there so no hot showers were
possible. I would suggest that another hotel be used in the future. That kind
of thing in hotels is beyond your control I know.
We have been very pleased with everything you have arranged for us.

I have returned from the Peru trip you set up for our group and wanted to thank
you for such an interesting and informative trip. Peru is a beautiful country
and its people have a lot to be proud of. I enjoyed the variety and pace of the
trip and feel I touched several areas of the Peruvian culture. Everyone we
encountered was knowledgeable and extremely courteous and helpful. Lori and I
returned to Machu Picchu on Thursday morning to be a part of the 400 people that
hiked Waynupicchu! It is such a well maintained trail and well worth the
efforts to be a part of the 400:)!!! You might think to offer the second day's
entrance pass for people who like to hike and remind people that the Ministry of
Culture only accepts soles for the entrance ticket. If we had had more time, I
could have easily stayed another day at Aguas Caliente.
The only delay we experienced was with Star Peru Airlines as their flights were
delayed for 3 hours on our flight to Cuzco and 1.5 hours delayed coming back to
Lima (other airlines seemed to be departing on time). We enjoyed Saturday's
tour of the coast and Pachacamac and ate dinner at La Dama Juana where we
enjoyed seeing the Peruvian Traditional Dances being performed.

at Sandoval Lake Lodge was wonderful and truly one of the highlights of our

guests and seriously run down. I didn't take any pictures, but truly, it wasn't
open for business. I suggest you not book any other clients in that place.

Dear Rita and Mayra
FEEDBACK FOR GATEWAY TRAVEL
It is incredible that I have not personally met anyone from Gateway Travel. All
our dealings have been via email and maybe a couple of skype calls. However I
feel that Rita and Mayra are part of my family. They looked after me as though
I was someone very special and unique to them. Traveling on my own through Peru
was a fabulous journey and knowing that I had these connections made thisngs so
much easier. All my transfers were easy. I felt like I was being handed from
one pair of warm hands to another pair of warm hands. I did not have to think
about anything other than being ready at the right time.
There were situations on the tour that called for flexibility and they were
handled with grace and ease. I felt totally comfortable and trusting that things
would happen with this company. When I woke up one morning and decided not to
go on one of the tours it was Gateway Travel that made things less expensive for
me. When I wanted to change things mid stream they assisted me all the way.
They replied to all my small insignificant inquiries with grace and with
I have realised I am not so good with organised tours. My level of independence
must strike all parts of my life. However if I wanted to do another tour
anywhere in Peru or other places I would use this company.

I have been meaning to write and tell you how much we enjoyed the trip tp Peru
last November. It was the best trip I have ever taken. Everything worked
perfectly, from meeting Hal and I at the airport in Lima, flying to Cusco, the
hotel in Cusco(especially their breakfast), the Inca Trail, and getting us back
to Lima for our trip back to the US.
All of your support people in Lima and Cusco were extremely helpful and friendly.
Now about the Inca Trail. The trip was amazing and our guides, Saul and John,
were great. Saul's knowledge of the history and old ways of the Incas was
amazing. Camping out on the trail was a great experience. I don't think Hal and
I have slept in a tent since we were in the Army 35 years ago. Even the camp
food was excellent. The weather was great and the scenery was spectacular, but
the steps were tough, and the altitude did not make it any easier.
I would certainly recommend the trip to everyone. However, if you are over 60 (
we are 64) you had better be in great shape. I thought it was harder than
running a marathon. We were worn out, but we enjoyed the challenge.
Thanks again to Perugateway Travel for a great trip.

We're back from our exciting trip to Peru and wanted to share with you our
wonderful experience and offer a few suggestions.
We had wonderful meals everywhere we went. The food in Peru was outstanding!! It
was always fresh, well prepared, and presented. On our first day, we had pizza
in Miraflores that was just "out of this world!!" We loved the hotel in
Miraflores, Lima; very quaint and lots of history. Last, our guides were well
prepared. The highlight, however, was the Vistadome train ride to and from
Macchu Picchu with the smoked salmon lunch and fashion show!! WOW!!
Cusco was also a wonderful experience. The Monasterio Hotel was a grand
experience because of the terry cloth bathrobes and shoes, the friendly service,
and, of course, the food.
These are our Suggestions:
1. Day # 1 should not have any activities scheduled as there isn't time for rest
from the morning flight. Discovered that our bodies did not acclimate properly.
As a result, we experienced sickness for two days.
2. Should not need to pack up belongings and have luggage stored for one night
as a requirement for making the overnight trip to Macchu Picchu because guest
will return to same hotel next day.
3. There should be A smaller Van available to bring tourist back to the hotel in
Cusco after finishing the group tours. There should be no need to walk up to the
hotel from the SQUARE in Cussco.
We hope these suggestions will be helpful for your future planning.

To Whom it May Concern:
My wife and I engaged Mayra Velasquez at Peru Gateway Travel to assist us in
planning our vacation to Peru.
This letter acknowledges that she worked within both our monetary and time
budgets to provide a vacation that was well paced, educational and enjoyable. In
short she made our dream come true.
All our in country accommodations from hotels, to transfers, to air and train
reservation and the English speaking guides she engaged for us made our time in
Peru a truly memorable experience.
Mayra was always available both by phone and email to give us experienced and
wise counsel in the planning stages of our adventure. Her suggestions were well
thought out and her knowledge of her country is invaluable in planning a trip
that took us from the rain forests
to Cusco, a city 11,000 feet above sea level. Through it all, Mayra was always
pleasant and professional. Mayra and her agency have the attitude that the
customer is always right. They will do everything within their control to make
your travels in Peru comfortable and timely. When we arrived at each city,
waiting for us at the airport or train station was an English speaking guide. He
was carrying a big sign with our name written on it. We knew immediately that we
were in good hands.
I have no hesitation in recommending you use Mayra and Peru Gateway Travel to
plan your Peru adventure. I have given them permision to use this letter of
recommendation and forwarded to them photographs of our wonderful journey
through Peru that we also allow them to share with prospective clients.

it to the next meeting place. the young trekkers almost always cheered when i

Sorry for causing you such concern and for the late notice of the cancellation.
I was still hopeful we could make it to Cusco.
Anyway I am pleased to say, due to the profesionalism and can do attitude of
your organisation that we were able to complete the Inka trail.
We arrived at our hostel in Cuzco and within 10 minutes I had a phone call from
someone in your organization and said they would be coming around to see us.
When the lady got there she said if we could be ready in 20 minutes then we
could still do the Inka trail.
We had some reservations at first because of not aclimatising but then thought
It was one of the most challenging things I have done but also the best thing I
One person made it all that more special, our guide for the 4 days, Carolina. I
have been to few countries and been on a few tours where we have had tour guides.
No one comes close to Carolina. When we first met her she came across as this
very friendly person and straight away we felt comfortable.
On the trail she had very interesting stories to tell. Not only about the ruins
on the trail but, also about the history of the Inca empire.
My travelling companion suffered from a little altitude sickness after the 2nd
day and Carolina was always there to make sure he was feeling OK and even took
action to make sure he felt better.
At dinner and away from the hike she was always attentive and took a keen
interest in getting to know everyone better.
When my friends say they are going to do the Inca trail I will most definitely
be reccomending them to your organistion anf if she is available to ask for
I have one problem though. We were on a tour with 3 german people so it was a
small group of 5.
Hernan and I made the mistake of joining in with them in tipping our guides.
They had this system where they would give $2 per day per person. This came to
all of us putting in $16 each. In my opinion this was not enough. We wanted to
give Carolina and Juanna (forgive me if that is not how her name is spelt), some
more privately without the germans knowing. I think it would have made them look
bad if we had openly given them more in front of them. After we all said our
goodbyes we searched frantically near the bust stop to find them, without luck.
Can you tell me now how I might be able to send her and Juanna some more money.
As I am typing this I am embarrased we only gave so little. Hope you can help.

We had a fantastic trip to Peru. We can't thank you enough. Carlos Martinez did
a wonderful job in coordinating our Cusco activities. The Hotel in Cusco was
delightful, quaint and comfortable. We will definitely recommend it to anyone we
know heading to Cusco. The tour guides were great, and the people who met us at
the different airports and hotels were flawless. Once again Great Job!
The only minor complaint we had was over the El Santuario Hotel in Aguas
Calientes. it left much to be desired and I would encourage you to maybe select
a different hotel for your clients. (The hot water was very hit and miss, it was
under renovations, and the lights from the hall lit the room through a window
above the door.) We were only in the room for sleeping at night, so overall it
had very little impact on our trip.
The extra day at Machu Piccu was fantastic, and may be something you want to
promote with your clients. We wish we had more time in Cusco to see all the
local archeological sites, so we will be planning a return trip in the future
and will contact you when we do.

Everyone in our group loved the Royal Inca II in Cusco. Some of our members
needed some down time prior to the Inti Raymi. Thanks to your staff, they
were accommodated. I appreciate the efforts and professionalism of the tour
guides and bus drivers. The tour guide at Machu picchu was very knowledgeable
and we highly recommend her.
Our trip to the Amazon was also a very positive experience. The Wasai Tambopata
Eco Lodge was wonderful. The food was fresh and prepared typical
to the area. I was disappointed however, in that there were no birds at the clay
lick. Some other people from the lodge went to a different clay lick
that had hundreds of macaws. I realize that nature is unpredictable. However, I
did see a few macaws on the premises of the lodge.
I would like to make one suggestion. When we received your vouchers upon arrival
at the airport in Lima, we did not have confirmation numbers for our
domestic flights. When traveling from Cusco to Puerto Maldonado, no one from our
party was in the system. When we entered our passport numbers at the
kiosk, they were not recognized. We called Gateway Travel in Lima which in turn
called the airport to confirm our reservations. We did make it on the
plane with plenty of time, so all turned out well.
Thank you for your courteous service. I will recommend you to my friends.

My sincere thanks to you and your
Company for making such wonderful arrangements for the trip to Machu Picchu. We
were met and looked after just as we had hoped.
I would certainly recommend your Company
for any future trips. Your prices are a fraction of those being charged by the
Cruise Line for exactly the same service. We flew on the same plane, ate in the
same restaurants and road on the same buses and trains.
Many thanks again

We just returned home and one of the first things I wanted to do was thank you
for an exceptional trip. Your service was above and beyond what we expected.
Every little aspect of the trip went as planned, everyone was truly wonderful to
us and you covered ALL the details perfectly.
I want to especially point out how VERY, VERY pleased we were with our guide,
Carolina. She is truly a gem and you should be very proud to have her, she was
exceptionally knowledgeable, her English was flawless and she was very patient
with the middle aged, slightly out of shape hikers that we are!!!! She is really
a treasure and she deserves a big raise!! :) She is the best of the best.
Everything went wonderfully, we had a great time and again - I want to thank you
and your company for such really great service. If you ever need someone to talk
to potential clients or give you a recommendation - we would be happy to do so -
you made our trip a memorable and happy one that we will always remember.

Sorry for the delay in replying; We had a great time in Cusco and are now
back in Buenos Aires.
The staff at Orquidea Real were extremely helpful and pleasant to work with.
The accommodation was just what we had hoped for and we enjoyed it.
The whole services and arrangements for the tour were excellent, and we were
amazed by the way every part of the visit was coordinated.
Congratulations to all for a wonderful experience for us.
Also we met up with some other people who had used Peru Gateway, and they
were also praising the services you have provided.
We must return sometime!

We had a fantastic time and a very successful trip. We made it!!
Juan our guide was incredible, and the porters were sensational in what they
were able to accomplish carrying Mr. Botero over 1/6 of the hike over the
steepest and most difficult terrain. Thank you!!
Is it possible to work with your company to organize the Inca Trail Hike for
others who cannot walk from around the World to come to do the Inca Trail Hike?
Can we now offer many trips with those who cannot walk to come with their
friends to do the Inca Trail Hike. Can you refer people to us, or do we refer
them to you, so we together, can offer the Inca Trail Hike to those who cannot
walk from around the world?

We are now well home again after a fantastic week in Bolivia and Peru. Thank you

Our guide was very knowledgeable. He is enthusiastic about his country and the
sites he showed us, very courteous. Really take care of us.
I (Mrs Drill) have arthritis and he found a bench to me to sit at chan chan
while he took the group to the cemetery. He told me it was too difficult to me
and my husband said he was right.
We want to thank your company, Ever and Julio for a memorable day.
P.D: Having the water, the juice plus the snack of crackers was very appreciated.
The van was very, very comfortable. Thank you again.

We’re back from one of the most exciting vacations ever. Thanks to you (and your
crew) our week in Peru was magnificent. Everything worked perfectly.
Only one thing might have been a little better, and that was the breakfast at
the hotel in Cusco. It was very limited in the variety, but it did not spoil
anything for us.
Please let the guides and the drivers know that we were very pleased with them
and their effort.
Thanks very much

This is with regards to confirmation #32469.
I was given a customer satisfaction form to fill out but I was not sure to whom
to give it so I thought I would e-mail after I got home. With regards the pick
up service, staff, accommodation, and tours, everything was excellent. The
guides were very good , the timing was great. My only complaint of Peru was that
there was too much really good food !!!!!!
I would definitely recommend your company to friends who were going to Peru. I
was very,very impressed.

Thank you again for all your hard work in arranging our tour of Lima on
Wednesday, January 27.
We had a wonderful time. Bartolome Alvino, our tour guide, was absolutely
fantastic. He showed us so many things and told us so much about the city, the
history, the current conditions of living. Both he and our driver were courteous,
very prompt and helpful.
We will highly recommend Peru Gateway Travel – and will add you to our website:
worldatlas.com on the Peru page. We have hundreds of thousands of visitors every
day to our site. Next time we plan a visit to Peru, I will contact you for
assistance in our plans.

This is Jimmy Barry,
writing to you from the U.S.A. Greetings. My wife, Cathy & I want to
thank YOU for arranging all of the details for our 9 day trip to Lima,
Cusco & Machu Picchu. It was WONDERFUL, GREAT, THE BEST ! With the
exception of the problem on the evening we arrived in Lima airport (June
19) when no one came to transfer us from the airport to our hotel, since
I had no Peruvian coins, nor knowledge how use your public telephones,
I had to tip & pay another transfer service to call the telephone
numbers you had given to me to get someone to come to pick us up.
Needless to say, after a 7 hour flight from the US, my wife & I were
tired & not very happy that we were not picked up! Then after making the
call;, two people ( Paula Arayo & another man ) arrived at the airport
for the transfer.
Aside from this
unfortunate incident, the rest of the trip, all of the transfers, the
meals, the hotel accommodations etc. were very satisfactory. The trip
was very exciting & enjoyable , one I will not soon forget. I may return
with my son ( 40 years old) next year to show him the wonders of inti
raymi & Machu Picchu. If I do, I will not hesitate to use Peru Gateway
Travel and their very best agent, Miss Dalia Cruz Valverde, to again
make the arrangements for me. I hope that you will show my letter to
superior of Miss Dalia Cruz Val Verde:
You employ a very
competent agent in the person of Miss Dalia Cruz Val Verde. She is
efficient, courteous, knowledgeable & strives to accommodate her clients
in all respects. Keep her, give her a raise in salary - she is most

Dear Patrizia & Julia,
My family have arrived back home. I want to tell you how much we enjoyed
our trip to Peru and to express my gratitude for helping to make it such
a wonderful experience. I know you must have been very busy when the
strike caused the road between Juliaca and Cusco to be closed and I
appreciate the effort you made to get us safely to Cusco. I will send
some photos soon. I would like to tell you how especially pleased we are
with Carlos Pena (Carlos of the Jungle) who was our guide in the jungle
and with Senora Carmin of the Residencia del Sol in Cusco. When my
wallet was taken in Cusco, Senora Carmin was tremendously helpful and
she always made us feel like family. Carlos has an amazing knowledge of
the plants and animals of the rain forest (and of North America). He is
a wonderful person who I will always consider a friend.

Our tour to Uros and Llachon was

Please forward this to your supervisors. We had a wonderful trip to
MachuPicchu. Our guide, Raquel, was awesome. She is very
knowledgeable about Machu Picchu and is very enthusiastic about sharing
what she knows with others. Please thank her again for us.
We have only
a few minor improvements we would suggest. That more care be
taken to spell names correctly on signs for pick-ups - that was a
confusing. Also, there was little confusion in Aguas Calientes when we
arrived regarding which hotel we were staying at, so that our larger bag
could not be transferred there for us.
Again, thank-you for a marvelous trip. We really enjoyed it.

I'm sorry I didn't get back to you. Just slipped my mind.
We had a great tour, once it got started. We were delayed about 2 hours
by the Peruvian authorities but the tour was worth the wait. Our guide
was very knowledgeable and informative. The lunch was terrific. The
only negative was no shopping time but that was due entirely to the
delay in the morning.
I can't think of anything we would have changed except for the weather.
Very overcast as was most the the weather we encountered on the cruise.
Of course, you had no control over that situation. The tour itself was
wonderful and both buses seemed to enjoy everything.
Please don't hesitate to give my name as a reference if anyone asks.

We wanted to thank you (all) for a wonderful trip. Everything went well and
everyone was great. People everywhere were very friendly.
You were able to put together our requests into a seamless trip. We never had
to worry about what we were supposed to be doing and we had plenty of time for
exploring on our own. The hotels you selected were of good quality and in good
locations. We liked that you covered all tickets and entrance fees and that you
provided local phone numbers in all locations. We needed the phone number in
Cusco when the person meeting us did not know of the changes to our plane
reservations from the week before. (Our call found him waiting in the airport
parking lot.) The Vistadome train and the Inka Express bus were both wonderful
experiences. Machu Picchu has to be seen to be believed. Our overnight stay in
Aquas Calientes was nice and it allowed us to visit the site early morning and
late afternoon when fewer visitors are present. The tour and overnight stay on
Lake Titicaca was a special highlight and our hosts were very gracious. We had
the added bounus of being there for their New Year's celebration.
On our last day where we had the 12 hour layover in Lima we reserved a hotel
room in Miraflores and spent the day resting, eating, and touring Lima. The
only regret there was that we found out about the double decker bus tour too
late to take it.
A couple of lessons we learned from this trip: The first was that when at high
altitude always request a hotel room with a window. Good ventilation is
especially important. The second was that when buying many things from street
vendors, they don't carry much change (money) and ATM's just give out large
bills. It is hard to keep a supply of small bills and change for those
important negociations. Maybe trips to banks for change could help.
Thank you again for a wonderful trip.

We would like to thank you for organizing for us a very successful and enjoyable
Peru tour. Everything worked very well; all agents were most helpful and always
ready to help out. We also enjoyed very much staying at Casa Andina Private
Collection throughout the trip as well as the Colca Lodge.
All guides were knowledgeable and very kind - we would however wish to single
out our guide to the Cañon del Colca, Liliana, who was truly excellent.
If we may also make a couple of suggestions for improvement, we found the
morning & lunch part of the excursion to the Valle Sagrado uninteresting and
wished the visit to Cusco included more of its colonial heritage - this part of
the city deserves more than the visit to the cathedral and the two adjoining

and everything went smoothly. Your company really made our trip hasslefree, we
were met at the airport on time, the hotels were very good.I want to specially
mention our experience doing the Inca trail, it was tough but awesome, the guide
Mr Saul was very good and kept his team of visitors, porters and cook very well
organized and taken care of. Wish the weather had cooperated as well, rained
quite a bit but I guess that"s part of the experience.
