Upon my return to Israel I would like to thank the Machete tours team that
arranged the Lares Trek ; The knowledgeable and very friendly and supportive
guide Edgar and the excellent and devoted cook & porter Mr. Modesto .
Thank you also for Yannett for the administrative support
Although it has been a very small "delegation " I enjoyed the trek very
much and it gave me the great opportunity to see and appreciate the
wonderful landscapes ,people living in the high land , the culture of the
region and of course the challenge of climbing and walking in high altitude.
The team that accompanied me was professional and at the same time always
looking to provide the best service and create good ambiance and this has
made it into an unforgettable experience.

We think both, Guide, horseman and Cook did a great job! The service was good and the staff contributed to a nice athmosphere in the group. We´ve had a very nice time with these great, service minded people :-)

The landscape we went through was exciting and varied and we saw lots of interesting animals and vegetation on the way!

We would´ve liked to avoid the tracks and walk only on paths in the mountains. We would also have liked to have better toilets.

Machu Picchu met the expectations to the fullest, even though I´d been waiting to go for 15 years.

All in all it´s been a nice trip.

Salkantay to Machu Picchu 5 days
October 2012

Hello All,

Im now back since some time in Sweden after the expedition in Peru. I just would like to say that Im so satisfied with everything for the expedition and the great arrangements by all of you. It has been a real dream experience and I recommend all my friends to join the same trip. Irma welcomed me at the airport and brought all pieces together for the trip. Victor was the best guide I could ever get, providing professional advice and ensuring safety for the whole program.

In July 2012 I finally got the possibility to summit mount Huascaran 6768 meters, with mount Pisco 5752 meters as acklimatisation. Victor turned out to be a true first hand choice who enabled me to summit these mountains. He was 24/7 ensuring a safe expedition, managing all situations professionally as a Peruvian Mountain Guide Certified and in perfectly spoken English. Victor prooved to have a deep knowledge about alpine safety, climbing technics, mountain and glacieer conditions, health issues, quality of epuipement providing first class tents and gear.

The team also included the cook Luis with the largest smile and best food in the Cordilleras, preparing desert at all altitudes even 6000 meters in minus 20 degrees. The porters Eber and Elmer were creating the most positive attitude, which is a must to summit. I never understood how they all could carry that heavy, be that fast and still talk and laugh at the same time. As Victor ensures quality for his staff by sending them all to alpine training every year, I felt safe with everyone in the team, which was proven during the climb.

Now having returned to Sweden and slowly starting to digest the fantastic adventures I would like to thank you all for these unforgettable days! For excellent organisation, summit climbs and friendly and yet professional way of guiding me to such achievements.

Also, after Huascaran I went for the Salkantay trip from Cusco to Machu Picchu, which was extraordinary however arranged by another actor on the market.

Thanks Victor, Irma and Ronald

Victor, please transfer my kind greetings to the team.

Best regards

Carina Ahlqvist

Dear Ronald,

As promised we have prepared the following feed-back on our family trip to Peru.

First of all: We had a great trip! We were always met and picked up when we arrived at a new place and things seemed generally very well organized. The following is our account of traveling as a family (2 girls of 9 and 12 years old) in Peru.

Lima: The hotel was nice and in easy walking distance from both the Larcomar-area by the sea and the tourist shopping area.
The journey from Lima to Aguas Calientes got to be somewhat longer than expected and planned. In Aguas Calientes our booking had been changed to a hotel called Green Nature. This hotel was right next to the railway station.
The guided tour to Machu Picchu was great. The guide, Ruben, was very good and even our youngest - who is nine, and does not understand English, was interested and liked the way he showed us different details and told stories.
The hotel in Urubamba - Hotel Amaru - was very nice! The beautiful garden was a great place to spend relaxing time and enjoying the birds in the afternoon. The girls could read or play and they loved the game room! This made a perfect base for trips in the area in the morning and relaxing time in the afternoon

The hotel in Cuzco was well placed, within walking distance to the centre. we really enjoyed the heating devise – Cuzco is cold... :).
In our Jungle tour: Cock of the rock lodge was a great place! We spend almost all our time in the dining area, with the fantastic surroundings that attracted much birdlife and other animals. Both our girls think that this was the best place we stayed – and we probably agree. The staff was very kind and helpful.
Blanquillo lodge: The sleeping area, that the manager himself called the dormitory, is very different from what we expected from a lodge. We were very happy (but surprised) that there were no other guests at the lodge while we
were there - we think it would have provided limited privacy. The surrounding area was fantastic, however, and totally worth it. The trips to the oxbow lakes were nice and we saw the otters and interesting birds here. And the Macaw Clay Lick was fantastic as well.
Our guide throughout the jungle trip – Robert – was just excellent Robert really did his best to accommodate all our wishes and put up with our different requirements. He had a good feeling with what everybody wanted and the children liked him a lot. Really family friendly!
The last lodge - Wasai, in Puerto Maldonado, was great. Just what we needed - with a nice little pool and sloths with young ones in the tree by the pool! A perfect place to end the trip!

Best wishes,
Jesper, Vibeke, Laura and Ida from Denmark.

Hello, Ronald!
I´m back in Sweden as you can understand. Here comes an evaluation of my
Peru tour:
Asked if my tour was worth the money...was it cheap?, was it expensive?... the answer will be meaningless because it´s not possible to estimate and materialize such experience in money or in economic terms.
If You try you have missed the point, I think.
I´ve been travelled a lot, in my time, and it´s hard to compare but this one was the best of them all! Also it´s meaningless to staple superlatives upon each other...
I have met so many nice people I have been treated so good and from Your staff I have been treated like a VIP all the time. They seams have no idea what the word impossible stand for. A special guide I will name is Eric "in Rainforest" Always a helping hand, trustable, well knowing and open minded! He ´s a gold nugget!!!!

Well, all arrangement has been kept, time has been kept and all events and sensations has presenters in suitable proportions. I have met clean, nice hotels, clean rooms good misses!
In short… It has been great! I have no complains!
It couldn't be better! You made my year, Ronald!!!!!
If you have need for me, Ronald, I will gladly help You as referent...
People can call me, cell (+46) 0737367719, at anytime!..... or mail [email protected] se
Ronald! I think You can be proud of Your country and your country men.
Again! Thank you!

Please convey our greetings and appreciation to Irma, Vivianne (in Cusco) and the young man in Lima which helped and guided us quite a lot and also gave us required guidance and support through some difficult moments because of the stolen passport. Overall everything has went well with the organization, hotels, vouchers, tickets, information, pick-ups at airports etc. from Machete tours.

Once again, thank you for a wonderful vacation,

You offer a trip that is really good value for the money, where most everything is included. The staff at Machete Tours offered a professional service too. So we would definitely travel with Machete Tours again.

Classic Tour with walk on the Inca Trail

I am really satisfied with Machete Tours, I don’t think I could have had a better journey. Everything was so well arranged and a guide came to meet me at the airport or other places that I went to, everywhere I went and made sure that I arrived to the places I was supposed to go to. It felt really good.

Dear Ronald:

Thank you very much for organizing such a wonderful tour for us in Peru! The service and attention we received during the tour were all top notch. All the guides were excellent. Ruth in particular who took us to Machu Picchu was outstanding. She was knowledgable, could anticipate our needs, and made us feel right at home in Cusco and the areas we visited with her. But they were all very good - Vanessa, Miguel, And Maria (in Cusco), and the last guide who took us shopping on the last day. We enjoyed immensely the restaurants chosen except perhaps for Las Brujas. But this was a minor blip as we thoroughly enjoyed Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, and Peru overall.

Thanks once again for organizing an amazing trip for us. Please convey our sincere thanks to all the Staff who assisted us during our stay in their beautiful country.
