Carlos F
Tour Inesquecível - Recomendação PERU GRAND TRAVEL Viajamos para Cusco em novembro e não poderia recomendar outra agência de turismo senão a Peru Grand Travel. Começando pelo atendimento do agente Clever que foi muito atencioso e esclareceu todas as dúvidas na compra do pacote, ajustando o roteiro para atender as minhas necessidades específicas quanto aos passeios, datas, etc. Chegando a Cusco posso dizer que a organização da agência é de alto nível. Desde a recepção no aeroporto e primeiras instruções no hotel com o detalhamento do roteiro e TODOS os itens de traslados, passagens, entradas, etc bem organizados em um deck para nós. Os guias foram outro ponto alto. Carmen, que nos levou aos pontos turísticos do City Tour em Cusco e do Vale Sagrado, explicando os detalhes e se esforçando para nos deixar a vontade. O Will que nos levou a trilha Inca de 2 dias foi também SENSACIONAL e como Quechua nos passou um pouco de sua cultura e seus costumes. Se você vai para Machu Picchu, faça a trilha e aproveite para conhecer toda esta experiência com muito respeito e ai passar a entender que é mais que uma trilha é uma peregrinação a um local sagrado de extrema beleza. Sobre a trilha e Machu Picchu, muito conhecimento, muita beleza e muita emoção em todo o percurso. Foi muito especial e ficamos emocionados ao final. Com ajuda do nosso guia pudemos vivenciar os costumes e fazer nosso ritual de agradecimento em um altar inca em Machu Picchu (PLUS da viagem). Novamente a organização desde o percurso até o box lunch da agência com tudo muito bem pensado para nos atender. Finalizamos a visita com um tour de 2 dias a Puno e ao lago Titicaca, um trajeto longo mas que foi confortável pelo ônibus de turismo e pela volta em ônibus leito (também tudo bem organizado e suportado pela agência). Só tenho a agradecer a Peru Grand Travel pela inesquecível experiência e por terem nos recebido e nos suportado em todos os temas, incluso quando encontramos pequenas dificuldades dentro da nossa estadia e tivemos uma pronta resposta e auxílio da empresa. VISITE MACHU PICCHU !!!
Visita a Machupicchu Hermosos paisajes. Excelente atención y coordinación. Guías muy atentos. Interesante información sobre la cultura andina. Conocimiento de antiguas civilizaciones
Ursula P
Incrível A experiência em Machu Picchu foi realmente incrível, mas todos os outros sítios preservados da cultura inca valem a visita! Para a montanha colorida e a lagoa Huamantay, tem que estar bem preparado. Foi um excelente serviço da Peru Grand Travel, responderam todas as minhas dúvidas e sempre foram pontuais. Não precisei me preocupar com o agendamento e a organização dos passeios e o hotel escolhido por eles em Cusco era bom.

A Maravilhosa Machu Picchu! Lindo!! O passeio foi sensacional, começando pelo Clever que foi meu primeiro contato, honesto, atencioso e sempre me respondeu rapidamente. Os guias foram todos muito atenciosos e além disso conheciam bastante toda a região e os fatos históricos. Efraim, Patrícia, Ângela e o Will. Quero destacar que em Machu Picchu tivemos uma experiência fantástica e o nosso guia, Will, nos impressionou muito, visto que conhecia profundamente a história Inca, pois o mesmo tinha raizes carcaças no povo Inca. Realmente adorei os passeios. Minha esposa ficou maravilhada e já quer voltar de novo. Nota 1000 !!!! Excelente !
Victor Hugo F

Viagem Incrível! Tivemos alguns equívocos na hospedagem, mas a Peru Grand Travel esteve sempre disponível pra solucionar. Ficamos em Cusco, mas sair para os passeios amenizava os efeitos agressivos (ao menos pra mim) do mal de altitude. Recomendo muito!❤️

Experiência memorável Tivemos a incrível oportunidade de fazer uma viagem de 8 dias com a Peru Grand Travel, cobrindo Cusco e Arequipa, e estamos encantadas com a qualidade dos guias em cada etapa da jornada. A pontualidade , simpatia e empatia de cada um deles nos impressionou! Pareciam genuinamente felizes por estar nos acompanhando, como se fosse o primeiro dia de trabalho. Sua paixão pelo que fazem brilhou em cada explicação e recomendação. Eles não apenas compartilharam conhecimentos valiosos sobre os locais que visitamos, mas também fizeram questão de garantir que tivéssemos a melhor experiência possível. Destaque especial para nosso guia de Machu Picchu que tirou foros e fez vídeos belíssimos! Agradecemos imensamente a cada um desses guias incríveis e à Peru Grand Travel por tornar nossa viagem tão memorável.
