Thank You very much for everything

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.

Patricia, I really enjoyed all of our tours and we had an incredible time in Cusco.
We"ll be sure to recommend Peru Gateway travels to any of our friends that
want to visit. The trek itself was excellent and we loved the guide
and all of our porters. The white water rafting day was also a lot of fun.

Mr. Yenseng Yong is to be commended for his tireless efforts to accommodate our wishes. The trip was complex and it all happened without error.
Excellent trip organization. Phone calls & messages from Eduardo in Lima. Guides were all friendly and gave us flexibility to enjoy the antiquities without distraction. 
It was a wonderful trip. This was my fourth trip to Machu Picchu, sacred valley & Nazca, I hope it is not the last!

Dear Yenseng,

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 are
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 friends.

Thank you again, and may God bless you.

Kind regards,

Hi, Denisse.

Thanks for your email. I received the payback in Lima, and everything is fine. I hope the taxi driver is ok.

I just wanted to say that I had a fantastic trip to Peru. You and your staff did an excellent job with everything – booking, the tours themselves, the work behind the scenes, tour guides' knowledge of Peru, friendliness, transferring me around. I thank you for an amazing trip, and I am really impressed with your company.

Please share my thanks with your staff.

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.

Hi Mayra!

I just wanted to drop you a note and thank you for all the help that you had extended the group.
This was a trip of a lifetime!!! The guides were very good, especially Oscar , most of all,
Diego was very prompt when picking us up.

We hope to use your company's services again since our family is interested in doing the Inka trail
in the future.

Thank you so much again!


Date : Tuesday, Jun 05, 2012

Dear Mayra,

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.

Thanks again!

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

Ola Denisse,

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 events.
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.

Once again thank you for making our first visit to Peru so wonderful. It was everything we anticipated and so much more.

Dear Mayra,
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.
All the best,

Hi Jorge,

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!!!

We just 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. What an unforgettable experience.
Thank you again, and please feel free to forward this to your supervisor and to use this email as a testimonial.

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

Dear Angella,


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 oxygen.

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.  So we learned our lesson-to stock to your plans, Angella! 

I will recommend you to anyone who asks for the best agency to go to if visiting South America.

In the future, I might want to return to Peru to see the rain forest, I will email you for your help.

Take care, and best wishes!

I hope that my daughter, Anna, did not give you a hard time!

Dear Angella,


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.


Thank you again for your help. We had showed the pictures and video tapes to our friends and will recommend Peru and your travel agency to ones who are interesting.





Date: Monday May 30, 2011

Hi Angie

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 told all my friends how great everything was and they already asked me for your contact!


Does your agency have sister agencies in other countries? 


Again, thank you for all your help Yenseng.

Dear Melisa,

We returned from our trip this week and I want tell you that it was wonderful.  Every thing went very smoothly and we were well taken care of.

Carolina was our guide and she did a terrific job. Her English was excellent and she was very personable and knowledgeable. She made the experience very special for us.

Thank you.

Dear Melisa,


First, I want to pleasantly inform you and your company that our  group was most pleased with the exceptional tour guides, the good food at restaurants you selected, and the very fine hotel accommodations provided from  May 8 to 13 through your services.  The tour was excellent, and the guides, Alvaro and Juan, were motivating, inspiring, experienced, interesting, helpful, and very conscious of our needs.

Hi Angie,

 I never got a chance to thank you for all of your help planning the trip. It was a wonderful experience and one that I will never forget. Here are some pictures so you see what I look like and maybe you could send a picture back so I can see who was helping me out this entire time. Maybe one day our paths will cross again and if you ever come to the US please let me know. Thanks

Hi Angella,

I just wanted to write and say THANK YOU for an amazing trip. Everything was great!!! All of our tour guides were informative and professional. We especially loved Carlos! I know we forgot to hand in our surveys but if you have an electronic copy, we would be happy to fill one out.

Again, thank you for all your help!

Dear Mayra,
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.
So thank you for your assistance with this trip.   I will be recommending your company!

Hello Rita! 
Sorry for the late reply.  The 2 days we spent in Lima before our departure back to Cananda went by so fast I hardly even had a chance to check my e-mails.  Justin has a family member who is a missionary priest and lives in Lima so we spent our last 2 days with him and had a great time. 
We were definitely impressed and appreciated the excellent service that you provided us through Peru Gateway travel.  Your follow-up phone calls and availability at various times of the day were much appreciated and we will have a lot of good things to say about your company!  We will keep excellent memories of our trip to Peru!  All the great tours we did and the nice people we met were unforgettable!
Sincere thanks,

Angella.......... we just returned from Peru and had a great vacation. Our time at Sandoval Lake Lodge was wonderful and truly one of the highlights of our trip. I do need to tell you that the Don Carlos Hotel in Puerto Maldonado was the only disappointment of our trip. The place was empty, not ready for 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.

Hola Rodolfo,


I had a wonderful trip in Peru, and Peru Gateway Travel did an excellent job for me. I was very happy with the itinerary and with the services provided while I was in Peru, especially the transfers from one place to another. I will be happy to refer Peru Gateway Travel to my friends and other people.


Muchos gracias.

Dear Rita and Mayra



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 accurate information.

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.

Dear Angella:

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.

Hi Melisa,

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.

Thank you.
Best regards,

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.

what a great trip. all the transfers were perfectly timed and the tours were wonderful. our accommodations in cusco was very comfortable and the staff very helpful and friendly. the 4 day inca trip was spectacular and our guide juan was just perfect. i was one of the oldest at 60 years old on the trail those days and felt very safe and pampered. one of the guides stayed back to be sure i made it to the next meeting place. the young trekkers almost always cheered when i came into camp. the weather however did not cooperate and the rains made the trails very slippery. we did not get that gorgeous view of machu picchu

that we hoped for but the tour of the ruins made up for it.

Thanks for all your help. I will recommend your tour company to my friends.

Date: On Sunday, the 14th of November, 2010

Hi Melisa,

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 why not.

It was one of the most challenging things I have done but also the best thing I have done.

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 Carolina.

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.

Once again thank you for a wonderful and exciting adventure.

I've wanted to let you know how impressed we were with your country.
our stay in Peru was truly amazing one.
we've met wonderfully genuine people and we had great and unforgettable time.
climbing Machu Picchu was terrific!!!
there is only one thing I think we should mention though.
the matter of tips for porters turned out to be a vital issue.we couldn't fail to notice how hard these men work on the trekking.
while for us it was evident that they should get a big tip some people were not so clear.
your email was very specific and we thank you for delivering this information.we just wanted to let you know that we encountered this situation and it was very awkward and in the end we felt really bad that maybe the porters didn't get what they should.
anyway,thank you once again for everything,I'm sure it wasn't our last time in Peru.

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.

Thank you for setting up the best vacation we've had in 10 years.

Hello Yenseng,
I want to thank you for all your help in planning our trip to Peru. Our group of eight people all had the best time ever. It is not easy to plan for so many persons of different ages and interests, yet it was a great success.
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.

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.

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.

Please let the guides and the drivers know that we were very pleased with them and their effort.

Thanks very much

Dear Maria,
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.

Dear Mayra:

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: 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.

Thank you again.

We'll like to send our deepest gratitude to you, your colleagues and guides for arranging such a fabulous and enjoyable trip for us.

The gorgeous scenery, your country's long history(previously unknown to us), the ingenuity of your ancestors, your lively music and dance, and the hospitality of the Peruvian people make our trip in Peru an unforgettable and wonderful experience.

Hello Dalia,

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 your superior.

To the 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 valuable!

Thanks, again,

James Barry,

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.  

Yours truly,
James Whitright

Hi Jenny- 

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 little 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.  Sincerely,

Cheryl and Sarah Loehr

Date: Tue, 26 may 2009

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.

Dear Jenny,

We returned on Sunday from Peru.  Susan and I had a wonderful time and love your country and the people.  Everything went very well and we especially loved the Inkaterra Hotel and Machupicchu.  Thanks for all your help and of course we will recommend your company to others.

We had a fantastic time, very educational and everything was perfect; no problems at all.

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.

Dear Iván,
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 churches! 
Well, all in all, we brought home many unforgivable memories from Peru!
Warmest regards,
Górdana Jerger and Luisa Morgado.

Just to let you know we had a great time in Peru. The arrangements for our trip were perfect 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.

Thanks again to your organization for  a great job.

Hi paola,

    it was great talking with you again, i wish it were because i was going on another trip to peru.  i"m sure i will go soon enough.  so here"s mine and xavier"s evaluation for fredi flores and the trip.

    the trip overall was spectacular.  xavier and i felt that as soon as we landed from the plane we were taken care of - ericson was there to pick us up and take us to the hotel, the hotel was nice (although the sound travels easily between the rooms) and so were the staff there, and so we really had a great time.  the only thing about the beginning trips(city tour and sacred

valley) was that they should communicate clearly with us.  when they take us from the hotel and drop us off at the church in plaza de las armas, they should let us know who we need to wait for and let us know that they would not drop us off at the hotel. but other than that, we enjoyed every minute of it.  mr. george was really on point with all his facts about the city and the sacred valley inca sites. 

    about the hike - fredi was an excellent tour guide.  he was very knowledgeable with the terrain, and he knew how to tend to the needs of the people in the group.  he was organized and took care of everything.  all we needed to say is that,  "we want to hike wayna picchu," and he"d make it happen.  the camping equipment and the food was good.  salkantay and machu picchu were incredible and fredi, florencio the cook, and walter the cowboy really made the experience special. 

     so thanks paola for organizing everything it was a trip of a life time.

I just wanted to take a few minutes to express my great satisfaction with
our experience in Peru on our tour last week. Overall, we had a wonderful
time--nearly everything was just great. Your representatives were always on
time, helpful, friendly and great to deal with. All of our tour guides
spoke very good English and all of the tours were excellent. Our
accommodations in Cusco and Aguas Caliente were wonderful as were the

Sanctuary Lodge. The flights to and from Cusco on LAN were outstanding and
we really enjoyed the train trip on PeruRail from Ollantaytambo to Aguas
Caliente and back.

 To Marcus, Jenny & team,

Well we"re back in Australia now and as I reflect on the photos taken during

 our trip I thought I should send you a short note to thank you for the manner in which our plans were initiated and executed.

It is somewhat scary to send a two and a half thousand-dollar deposit to a company of which you know nothing. But I must say that the professional manner in which you communicated helped aleeve the fear and when you advised that you had a toll free Australian phone number, that further helped confirm, "you"d done this before".

 From the time we arrived in Lima on May 22nd until the time we departed from La Paz on June 6th almost everything was perfect, with the guides all providing everything we required. We would recommend Peru Gateway Travel to anyone, and have already advised my Australian travel agent, and my copy of this email will remind him.

 I have absolutely no problems should you wish to use this to help give others confidence.

 Thank you and best wishes for future business.

Our trip was wonderful.  Everyday was an adventure.  Everything ran smoothly -- our flights were on-time; we were met promptly at each airport; the day trips were marvelous, with well-informed and fun guides.  I became ill, probably from bad cheese on an airline, and the hotel got me a doctor promptly, I was given medication, and the guide in Quito was fantastic in delaying our flight one day so I could recover, and changing around our itinerary in a seamless manner.   This was certainly the trip of a lifetime, and we owe it all to you and Peru Gateway Travel.  Thank you so much for all your efforts in making this a fabulous trip.

Hola Mr. Yong  I have just returned from my trip to Peru, and  I had booked the 7 day  Peru Adventure tour with your company. Just wanted to let you know the wonderful experience  that I had. Everything was really great, all the guides were very knowledeable, friendly, and warm. The hotel in Cusco called Orquidea Real Hostel was  wonderful , from it"s warm cozy room with unbelievable views of Cusco  to the young staff that was so friendly and kind to this single traveler that spoke limited spanish.  Also just wanted to mention the rafting trip that was just so much fun and the guide Orlando and his father Juan. Orlando was very  knowelegable of the river and Inca history, and had a great sense of humor. The whole trip from beginning to end was a experience that will be with me forever. Thank you again. I am now home in the USA but my heart is in Peru and it"s wonderful  people.

A quick note to thank you, Kirsty and everyone who was involved in making our trip to your country so memorable. We had a wonderful time and all the arrangements were perfect. There was only one slight hitch in Cusco when we were unsure of the time of pick-up but apart from that everything went according to plan.The staff were unbelievably helpful and prompt and our hotels were excellent.

Particularly helpful and knowledgeable were Dante in the Sacred Vally and Renan in Sun Island. These two were excellent guides.

We will send you more comments later.

Dear Angella, We would like to convey you and your many staff our sincere thanks for the exceptional work carried out by you all to make
our holiday in Peru so memorable. We had no idea in advance that we would be so well looked after and taken care of.
The arrangements made by Peru Gateway worked like clockwork for all our visits to the various sites and your tour guides were superb
especially Johnny Salazar at Machu Pichu who helped me so much to get about with my damaged knee.
Also please convey our thanks to Luis in Cuzco who worked so hard to take us around to and from trains and airport. We were so enthralled by
Peru that we will likely retun again and will unhesitatingly contact you to make our arrangements. Similarly we would have no hesitation in
recommending your company to any of our friends who may be thinking of travelling to Peru.
We much appreciated the excellent care and attention which your

We are back from Peru and really enjoyed the trip. Your company did an outstanding job arranging hotels, tours, etc. I will recommend you company to my colleagues. Also, all the tour guides were good. However, I thought two were really outstanding. They were “Adrian” in Lima and “Angelica” in Puno. Thanks again.

What a wonderful trip we had to Peru. We really enjoyed the sights we saw on our tours of Cusco, Machu Picchu, and Lake Titicaca areas. I really wanted to let you know how pleased we were with all our tour guides. Most of them spoke very good English. Every pick-up was on time (or even early). It was so comforting to get off the plane in a foreign country and see my name on a sign.
Machu Picchu exceeded our expectations. It is so much larger then we thought from pictures or TV shows we have seen about it. The Pueblo Hotel was a wonderful place to stay.
The guide we had in Ollantaytambo (Guillermo) was especially good. He was very helpful with Frances (she is 82 years old) on climbing the steps there, and understood that she needed to go slowly down the hill.
We also liked the Uros floating islands on Lake Titicaca, and learned a lot about how they got there. We made a couple purchases from a native lady named Delia. (Unfortunately, when we got home my dog chewed up the reed boat we bought from her. I wish I knew how I could get that replaced.)
The tour of Taquile Island was almost more than Frances could handle. At 12,000+ feet in elevation and some of the steps being almost as long as her legs are, it really wore her out, but she was glad she did it. The next day she missed the tour of the Sun Island, but the beautiful catamaran was a great place for her to give her legs some needed rest.
Thank you so much for your help in all our travel plans (and cancellations).

My family and I arrived safely back in the United States on March 31st. We wish to express our appreciation to you and the members
of your company for a wonderful 12 day tour of Peru.Your guides and drivers were always on time to pick us up for transport and
were very efficient, knowledgeable and courteous. The hotels you booked for us were clean and comfortable, the only problem being
the mix-up in our reservations at the Grand Faraona, which you corrected by speaking to them.The touring of Cousco, Nasca Lines,
the Sacred Valley, Macchu Picchu, and the reed islands as well as the overnight catamaran boat trip were all very interesting to
us and we certainly got our exercise climbing so many steps!Also, the included lunches were provided in first class restraurants
and were delicious, especially the buffets which provided a nice variety of Peruvian dishes to sample.
We wish you and your company much success in your business and thank you again for a most enjoyable trip to your beautiful country.

Hi Elisa, Carmen and all,

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip. I would just like to say everything
was perfectly organised from the moment we arrived in Lima to the moment we
left. Our connection to Cuzco was cancelled but the airline made sure all
gringos got on the next planes for Cuzco.
The tours were great, the guides very knowledgable and friendly and the
hotels were lovely. The food at all stops was amazing and I would just like
to say thank you.
My only complaint is the Hatuchay Tower had no heating in the rooms but they
soon gave us a heater when we asked for one.
Thank you once again and I will certainly recommend you or use you myself
Best Regards

Dear Jessica,
I just wanted to thank you and everyone at peru gateway travel for putting together such an awesome trip. I had an absolute blast. Everything was great to the food, the hotel, the sites, and the people I met.
Thank you

Dear Patricia,
Thanks you so much again ! I have been received the vouchers of Jungle Tour and Hotel in Lima already. Now, we are in Iquitos and feel hot and wet here, but we have good experiences during our trip, especially for your agency service, I will highly recommand your travel agent while all of our friends who want to visit Peru. I will send you some photos after I come back to Hong Kong.

We just completed our trip to Galalpagos and Machu Picchu. It was a wonderful trip and your guides, hotels, tours were great both from Peru Gateway and Klein Tours. For the most part, it exceeded our expectations.
Just a note, the Mira Flores Colon hotel was our least favorite hotel...and certainly not up to the standards of the other hotels you selected. Hopefully you will take this into consideration.
THank you for you assistance and helping us plan a great trip.
