I HAD A FABULOUS TIME!!!!! Our tour direct was the best, he set the bar EXTREMELY high for any directors that may follow on any other tours I may take. The other small tours and those guides were just as amazing. The knowledge they had was very impressive. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in traveling. I already have a trip scheduled for 2019. EF Tours has a fabulous thing going on.

Great Elements But Needs Serious Adjustment
This is an outstanding tour with many great elements like Machu Picchu highlights of Lima and other key ruins and great shopping opportunities however sumtur elements were extremely poorly planned by EF. Specifically when we flew to Cusco from Lima from zero altitude to about 11,000 feet we were marched directly to climb the local ruins which got everyone on our tour altitude sickness immediately and ruined the trip for many of our Travelers. This is absolutely inexcusable as EF always preaches safety and even in their own literature stresses taking it easy when going to high altitudes but then despite my prior to traveling having communicated my concerns to our tour director guide and others made no adjustments and consequently recklessly endangered the health of our group. For those who could still eat walk and survive without a glaring headache the food was generally very good and Peru is an amazing destination that deserves to be explored. One could easily travel from more than two months in Peru and not see all that it has to offer Machu Picchu is just the tip of the iceberg and not even the best place to go in Peru but EF needs to make major adjustments so as not to endanger Travelers simply to save money or for whatever misguided reason they had us go to the ruins and Cusco immediately upon our arrival by plane to Cusco at high altitude when we could have easily gone to the same site later in the trip after having a justed to the altitude.

Peru was outstanding!
From the director to the experience- all parts of Peru were amazing. I couldn't have made a better trip myself & it will go down as my best trip yet!

I had an overall good time . This was my first time being out the country and it will probably be one of the most memorable trips I take in my life. The only thing I didn't like so much about the trip was the dinner's, I feel that the food wasn't portioned right. I for example, they gave us so much rice. Other than that the trip was amazing and I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who would like to sightsee and learn more about his country!

Best Tour Yet
I have taken several EF Tours and this was the best one yet. Peru is simply magical and magnificent. Machu Picchu cannot be described. No pictures do it justice. I added the Amazon extension and this was even better than Machu Picchu. The jungle lodge was located right in the Amazon rainforest. You could hear all the creatures at night right outside your bungalow.

I have travalled extensively in my life and this trip to Peru for EF rates as my #1 experience. The itinerary, the EF tour guide were the best. The trip was worth every penny of the price. Thank you

This was my first time ever leaving the country and I can honestly say that I felt safe and happy the entire trip. My tour guide was the one that truly made this trip amazing. He made us laugh and was constantly looking out for us. You made connections with people and it sparked this interest and now I can't wait to continue traveling with Ef tours. The price and experience is worth it. You get more than what you paid for.

An amazing experience, get ready for a whirlwind travel experience. The depth and diversity of this culture is immense. The environments are so different and stunning. Do be forewarned, this trip is very physically demanding, more so because of the altitude.

I loved this tour and the tour guide I had. We had an equal amount of educational along with just the experience of the new culture all together. This was one of the best trips I have ever had.
