I wanted to write to you to say thank you for planning one of the most wonderful trips I have ever experienced in my life.
I had such an amazing time, and did so many things in that short period of time. We both loved it. Our tour guide Ayul who we had for 3 days was incredible, helpful, and very professional; our drivers were so nice, and good too!! I mean driving through the rural areas was no easy task haha..
I can't thank you enough for planning our trip! To top it all and to my surprised Jorge and I got engaged in front of Machu Picchu which as you can imagine.. well I have no words for that moment. :) See attached.
Dear Betty and Susan
WOW....you really gave us the trip of a lifetime to Peru. I want to thank you for making the trip so wonderful and memorable. We enjoyed every minute. All the tours were fantastic, the hotels were lovely, and the itinerary was just right. Staying at the Belmond Sanctuary at Machu Picchu was worth every penny as we felt that we had Machu Picchu all to ourselves in the afternoon when everyone left to take the bus back to town, and we were first in line at 6 AM the next morning to hike to the sun gate.
But, I must say the trip was made even better by our guides, especially Fidel Gamerra. His passion for the Peruvian culture and his knowledge of ancient civilizations made the tour that much more special. We felt so fortunate to have had Fidel with us through the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and Cusco.

Prior to this Tour I had only taken one three day packaged tour in Australia. The reason being, anytime I had taken a Half or full day tour anywhere , I would usually get frustrated as it made no difference if I wanted to look/read something, too bad, Time up and I usually would get spoken to at least once for holding things up.
In planning this trip we thought that a package tour was our best and only true option Everything was totally Awsome, never felt hurried, my greatest fear. Fiesta Tours on your behalf provided us with a First Class product in all aspects.
There was always a Rep. waiting for us, taking us somewhere and ensuring that we were always well informed.
I actually believe that they went farther than one would have actually expected or hoped for !
The Services provided us could only be out done by the sight of Machu Picchu itself !

All four of us agreed without hesitation that the trip was a great experience. We are very grateful to you and your staff in Peru for rescheduling hotels and other transportation on short notice when it was learned that Bolivia had closed its borders. We are also grateful that we were not trapped inside the country when the political problems caused the border closings.
It was very reassuring that you and Maria in Lima were there for immediate assistance for rescheduling our second week. Sillustani and the Uros Islands were very enjoyable and fascinating, as was Taquile Island. All of our guides for the two weeks were knowledgable, personable, and very professional. In Puno, Eddie and Eduardo were standouts. Every guide that we had took pride in his tour and shared with us the rich history that Peru has to offer.
Again, thanks for your concern that we have a good experience with Marnella Tours. It was a great two weeks, and I will not hesitate to recommend Marnella to friends and family. Special thanks also to Joyce who began working with me a year ago to plan this trip.
Have a great week.
All the best,
Just got back yesterday from Peru and I wanted to tell you how amazing it was! The itinerary was brilliant because it slowly increased in elevation and we did fine with it-no altitude sickness. The your guides were magnificent!! Loved Marta, Patricia, Odealia, Bertha and the folks at Fiesta Tours Peru. The customer service was impeccable. We also adored Penelope and the culinary experience. The hotels were great too, especially Sumaq. I wanted to stay there longer! I also loved that we were able to go to Uros and spend the night in Taquile. I've been on many group tours and this was by far the best in terms of all around service, itinerary, and guides. I can't wait for India in September!!!
Tour was wonderful – everything went as planned.
Everyone that escorted us was polite, knowledgeable and responsible. Ivan Hinojosa was delightful and such a knowledgeable guide – We loved Peru and would certainly recommend Fiesta Tours Peru.
Thank you so much – This was an amazing experience for us.
Hi. Good morning. We had a beautiful trip. The services provided by your team were excellent. Hotels were excellent.
My name is Edward French, my wife and I have just returned home from a tour of Peru. Originally, I was dealing with Festival Tours here in the states. When we got to Lima, I found out that they had given you the job of taking care of our Tour in Peru.
I don't know who was responsible for seting up all the things we wanted to do on our Tour but I must say that whoever it was, they did a fantastic job. I would hope that you either forward this e-mail to them or send me their e-mail address so I can thank them personally. They did a great job. Please do either or both. Thanks again,
With all the trips you lead, we hope you remember us: Ralph and Lynn Torres. The last of May,
2015, you drove us to/from Nazca and Lima, we stayed in Ica, and Lynn was ill from the flight
over the Nazca Lines. You and Ralph spoke Spanish during much of the drive.
You were not only our driver, but a fantastic guide. As a result, we learned a great deal about
your country and the land we traveled through. You definitely made tha portion of the trip a
most memorable one.
We wanted to say thank you for all of you hard work and information. Having seen how
interested you were in your own country, we decided the best way to say thank you is to send a
gift. We hope you enjoy it.
The first gift, everything related to our trip, was easy to choose to share our entire trip with
you. All the research we did before we left and the pictures we took (sorry, but over 3,000
pictures have not been gone through to take out bad pictures or to turn them) are on what we
call thumb drive (USB drive). There were three museums that allowed pictures; in each of
those, Lynn took a picture of the museum pieces and the next picture is the description of that
piece. To Know where we were, we have also included our itinerary. The pictures are arranged
by LT (Lynn) and RGT (Ralph), and he is the better photographer. Hope you enjoy our tour of your
country as much as we enjoyed you and your information.
Second, we want to share a small piece of our country. As with Peru, there is so much to see
and do we could not include everything. We hope you enjoy the book we choose from a
museum in Denver that contains only Western art. This is art relates to what is the southwest
of our country (which is semi-desert) and includes cowboys, indians and scenery.
Again, thank you for all you did for us. if you and your wife ever come to the United States,
please let us know if you are in our area. we would enjoy seeing you again.
From travelers ... To Genaro
