"Everything exceeded my expectations: the punctuality, the reliability, the quality of the suggested hotels, and the quality of the guides."

"What we think makes your company stand out is your customer service and dedication."

"What makes your agency exceptional is the personal, 24-hour service you provide, your ease of accessibility throughout Peru, and your prompt, courteous, and competent attention to our needs."

"As my wife remarked to me during our flight home, "everything exceeded my expectations." "Everything" here refers to the punctuality (all the pick-ups and transfers to and from airports, hotels and train stations), the reliability, the quality of the suggested hotels, and last not least also the quality of the "guides." The latter were not just some "tourist guides" in the usual sense of the word, but actually academics and researches who were established authorities in their field. They were of course fluent in English and seemingly LOVED to open our minds to the amazing world of the Incas."

"Here is my report of the glorious trip you had planned for my party and me in South America. I have to admit that, before the trip began, I had experienced some apprehension, wondering if everything planned would be carried out as promised or... would we encounter one difficulty after another? I wasn't very certain so I could not assure my friends that things would be all right! Now that I'm back, I can say for sure that one can definitely depend on Latin America For Less!"

Doreen (Singapore)
Traveled to: Rio de Janeiro, Iguaz? Falls, Buenos Aires, El Calafate, Cusco, Machu Picchu

"I can't recommend you guys at Peru For Less highly enough. Ale coordinated most of our trip and after a few weeks of emails and suggestions from Ale and changed itineraries we finalized our plans. We had planned to do all the bookings ourselves to save money as we have done this in other continents such as Europe and Asia without problems. But, we soon learned that South America is very different and we worked out that it was going to be a lot less stressful and most probably cheaper to book it through your services. This certainly turned out to be true."

Kris and David (Byron Bay, Australia))
Traveled to: Lima, Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Nazca & Paracas

"As you know, I have just returned (with your help) from your great country. Peru for Less was everything you promised....and more. I was always picked up on time and the drivers and guides were always friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and helpful. All the hotels were basic but clean and located well. Thank you so much for all your help. You always answered my emails containing many questions. I came to trust you and my trust was well placed."

When clients arrive to Cusco, our staff is there to meet each traveler personally. We review the details of the client's itinerary and provide practical information and insider tips for what to do, see, eat, and drink in Peru.

Personalized Travel Peru is a travel agency AND a tour operator
Travel Agency & Tour Operator

Remember, we are on-site to take care of you.

Typically, the travel agency (middleman) sells third-party tours to the client. The tour operator does the legwork (handles logistics). We are unique among travel companies because we sell AND operate tours for our clients only.

There are very few travel agencies based in the United States and Europe that have local tour operator offices in the countries they sell. We are one of the few, and can thus ensure the maximum quality of service.

The providers of Personalized Travel meet US and EU quality standards
Our Providers & Suppliers

We have high standards for our providers and suppliers in Peru. Whenever possible, we try to match U.S. and European travel standards.

We've spent years researching services on the ground. As a result of this work, we've found the best quality hotels, transportation services, tours, guides, and restaurants.

We have a key advantage compared to our competitors: our "feet on the street", our personal experience and in-depth knowledge of the places our clients travel to. This makes us unique among South American travel companies.
