This travel company was quick to respond and suggest an itinerary. They particularly impressed me by having someone meet me at every transfer point, so I was never unsure about where to go, how much time I needed, etc - really helpful as I was traveling alone and don't speak Spanish well. The suggested itinerary was also what I was looking for and again, it was incredibly helpful for them to have worked out all the logistics for me. The people who met me as tour guides and drivers were always very courteous, prompt, and professional and they spoke English.
Machu Picchu was amazing and the key reason I wanted to go to Peru, but the whole trip was wonderful. I feel like the jungle visit was a bit off the beaten path for Americans, so really happy they suggested it.
I might have added a bit more time in Cusco and I wish I could have had more time in the Larco Museum in Lima. I mentioned to them that the weavers I visited in Chinchero were not forthcoming about selling stuff that was industrially made rather than handmade, even though the guide explained to them that I only wanted to buy items handmade locally. I suggested to them that they recommend tourists purchase items at the Awana Kancha alpaca and llama museum, where they sell fairly priced merchandise made by 14 local communities. The quality is higher and the money goes to support the communities. I upgraded the hotels in a couple instances and am really glad I did. I didn't change the hotel recommended for the Sacred Valley, though wish I'd had a better room as the shower was terrible - it may not have bothered me as much if I hadn't just come from the jungle where there was only a cold shower available for 4 days. (There should have been a hot shower, but something was wrong.) But I was really cold in the Sacred Valley and was looking forward to a "real" hot shower and disappointed it was only a hot or cold trickle. (The rest of the hotel, including the room, was lovely.)
