What our guests say about this trip

Dear Enchanting Travels, thanks to you, we had an excellent experience in Peru. From start to finish, you delivered. Our Travel Consultant helped set the stage. Our Trip Coordinator and chauffeurs (apologies for forgetting their names) kept us on schedule, and pointed in the right direction. Our guides Dania, Nancy, Wilda, and Lisela kicked into gear and performed flawlessly … from the minute we landed in Lima … to our departure nine days later. They were knowledgeable, professional, attentive, and friendly. Each, in their own special way, contributed to our positive experience. Our favorite activity was visiting Machu Picchu. Wilda was easy to understand and made the place come alive! All accommodations, experiences, and activities were “as advertised”… and, “better than expected”. Enchanting understands their business, knows how to treat their clients, and fully stands behind their product (wonderful travel, without worry). We tell our friends …”check out Enchanting; you won’t be disappointed.” Thanks for the great memories. Best wishes, Rick and Iveta.
