After a lot of research online and on the phone, I decided to book my trip to Peru with Destination peru. They couldn’t have been more helpful in the planning stages, gave me all kinds of recommendations and saved my trip. I hadn’t planned enough time in Cusco, I thought it would be easier but Jared explained how it all works. Man was he right! I can’t imagine doing this trip without their expertise.
I got to build my own tour with them, focused on the ruins which is exactly what I wanted. Can’t thank you all enough. Especially the team in Cusco, Javier and Wilder and our driver Carlos. Trip of a lifetime. 5 stars!

My wife and I just completed a 16 day trip in Peru and it was amazing! Jared at Destination Peru put it together for us and he knocked it out of the park!!! We visited much of the country from Piura in the north to Cusco in the south. We loved Cusco and Machupicchu the most!!! What an amazing place. If you decide to go I highly recommend using Jared!!!
Jared and the Destination Peru
guides, Kenny & Gilbert, & coordinator, Javier, provided a fabulous trip for my sister and I and our husbands. Our private tour was indeed a trip of a lifetime. We loved the itinerary and the knowledge & helpfulness of the team. From the incredible buffet lunches & lodging in the Sacred Valley, the colorful markets & delightful Peruvian people, the pace that allowed us time for pictures, exploration, education, to the magnificent scenery of the mountain, ruins, terraces, we were left thrilled with memories for a lifetime. We loved trying many new foods & drinks, and learning about the different flowers, birds, and animals. The Inca history was fascinating.The Vista Dome train ride was unforgettable in its spectacular scenery, comfort, & delightful entertainment. Thanks again to Jared and his team for being so responsive to our many questions and for attending to all the details that made our trip so memorable.
After months of planning and researching and looking around at different companies, we decided to hire Destination Peru for our private tours in the Cusco area. As others have already mentioned, that was the best choice we made for our trip. Jared was on top of things, he was always 2 steps ahead. Everything went exactly as we had planned and was perfect. A lot of people we ran into in Machu Picchu were griping because something or other didn’t work out right, not us! Everything was perfect. Thank you, Destination peru, for making this the perfect trip!
I had an incredible experience in Peru with Destination Peru! I’ve done 2 trips with them to Machu Picchu. I also did a tour with them to Lake Titicaca and to the Amazon. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Jared thought of every detail. Even down to helping me know how to negotiate a piece of jewelry I wanted to purchase. Thank you! I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!

Jared and his team of guides gave us the most spectacular trip we could have ever imagined. We had a private tour with just my sister and I and our husbands. The trip Jared put together for us was absolutely amazing. There was nothing we would have changed. Everything was thought of for us from the seats on the train to get the best views to Machu Picchu to bottled water each morning for all of us as we began our tour each day. The restaurants choices were amazing. We tried so many different foods that were native to the region and enjoyed them all. The food was presented so beautifully in many of the restaurants we found ourselves taking pictures of the food as well as the scenic places we visited. We had an all around great experience of the culture in Peru as well as the scenery, hiking trails and ruins. We will cherish the memories of this trip forever. Thank you Jared and your team for this trip of a lifetime.
Jared is the best guide imaginable in Peru. He has lived in Cusco but also has an International perspective about the sights and history of the Incan Empire. His in-depth knowledge of the area helped make good use of our time, and the other guides who assisted us were equally friendly. We would never use anyone else for a guide when we return with our family in the future.
