We really appreciated the whole organization of our trip. Everything was taken in charge (respect of the program, transfer timing). Every guide and staff member was welcoming and knew a lot about their culture and subject, being very friendly. We also liked the way PeruEtico works with respect to traditions, the environment and the population. During the trip, we particularly enjoyed the Myths and Legends tour of Cusco and the stay at Taquile. Thanks.
