Is This Trip Right for You?

This active program covers a good amount of ground each day. Expect from two to four hours walking on some touring days. The pace is moderate, however you will encounter some uneven surfaces such as sandy and rocky beaches, stairs, steps and significant slopes. A few early wake-ups, some at 5 or 6 AM, as well as one long 10-hour drive to Puno are necessary to cover the territory. Due to the high elevation, travel in the Ecuadorian Andes and the Peruvian highlands may cause some passengers to experience the temporary effects of altitude sickness. The altitude, 11,000 feet in Cuzco and 12,400 feet in Puno, may be a consideration for those who have heart conditions or are otherwise affected by height. We suggest you check with your healthcare provider before signing up for this tour. It takes approximately 2 hours to get to and from the areas populated with wildlife. You will experience wet landings in water, on sand or rocks and dry landings on wooden docks. This trip combines an escorted portion with the services of a Tour Manager and an independent portion with services that include local and naturalist guides. The weather in Galapagos is hot particularly December through June. Some hotels in Urubamba, Cuzco and Puno are built in the traditional local style and have no air-conditioning. During heat waves, these hotels can become uncomfortable, even at higher elevations. This is a Partially Escorted program. For more information, click here.

Our trip to Peru with Gate 1 was one of the best tours we’ve taken. All the hotels were four star rated. The sights (Machu Picchu, Eros, and Colca Canyon) were fabulous, the food wonderful, and the people very welcoming to tourists. Our tour manager Abel ranks as the best we’ve every had with Gate 1. Abel was friendly, very knowledgeable, approachable and above all a “fixer” when it came to minor issues that occur during any tour. We can’t wait for our next tours to Egypt, Vietnam, and Morocco.

The trip was a outstanding! As always, lots of moving around but worth every moment of it. Pavel keeps things smooth, entertaining, and educational. He is truly committed to Gate 1 and creating amazing travel experiences for his guests. The group blended so well, that it made it difficult to leave. My Peru travel family will always be remembered.

We had the time of our lives! It was the best trip we have ever been on! The food was amazing and Abel our tour manager made the trip into a magical experience! He was very knowledgeable, kind, very aware of our needs and made our group feel as if we were a family. He made the trip the special experience it was. Richard the helper was also excellent, always helping us down steps, always asking what we needed. He, Abel, and Julio the bus driver made a great team! This is our first trip with Gate 1 we will definitely be back! It was an amazing trip and please let Abel know that he brought the beauty of the Inca people into a magical reality with his wealth of knowledge ! Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip!

It was definitely the trip of a lifetime! My partner, Mark, and I have been dreaming of crossing Peru off our bucket lists for some time now and it was as amazing as we could have hoped for. The energy of our entire vacation felt magical, from visiting the bustling city of Lima to the rural highlands and everything in between. Our tour guide Pavel was so passionate and informative, shucks even the other couples we met in our group quickly felt like close friends. Gate 1 had all of our needs taken care of, transportation/hotels/dining accommodations went smoothly so we could focus on experiencing this together worry free. We couldn't be more delighted.

Our trip to Peru and Machu Picchu was fantastic! My daughter and I enjoyed ourselves immensely .... Our tour guide was always looking out for our safety. We stayed at very comfortable and clean hotel, ate at restaurants with delicious local cuisine, and our helper and bus driver were the best ... We also had the good fortune to travel with a wonderful group of people. The whole experience was so much more than we expected. Thank you for a trip that will stay in our memories forever!

I want to take this opportunity to tell how much I enjoyed my recent trip to Peru. I can't imagine what could have been done to improve my experience. First of all, I must commend our tour guide, Ronald, who bent over backward to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. His concern and compassion are beyond reproach. He was easily accessible at all times if there were questions or issues. A native of Cuzco, he certainly knew his stuff, and his knowledge of the history of the various regions was complete. He made the complications of the itinerary (transfers, etc.) so simple. The optional excursions were great, and Ronald seemed as excited as we were to visit these places. He's also simply one helluva nice guy. His job is not an easy one, but nothing clouded his focus to offer us the best experience ever. This was my first Gate 1 trip, and I've already booked a 12-day tour of Germany for May, 2019. I also very much appreciate that Gate 1 offers a reasonable single supplement, so helpful to those of us who must travel alone. Thanks for a memorable experience. I'm spreading the word about Gate 1.

He was kind, helpful, intelligent, funny and energetic ... The bus drivers and local guides were some of the kindest I have encountered. I can’t say enough about Peru, the Gate 1 employees and Gate 1 in general. Oh and I must not forget the people who picked me up and dropped me off at the airport. What gentlemen.

We loved this trip to Peru! My wife and I were accompanied by our two adult daughters. All four of us had a marvelous experience. Our tour guide Mr. Rolly Carasco was outstanding. He is passionate about explaining Inca history, customs, religious beliefs, and the role of the Spanish Conquistadors' devastating impact on the original people of the region ... Machu Picchu was more thrilling than I expected it to be. The other highlights: Cuzco, the floating Uros Islands, the visit to the school classroom, the Central market vegetable stands, and so much more. We would all enthusiastically recommend this trip ... We are already discussing and planning for our next Gate1 excursion.

Our trip to Peru was outstanding. I fell in love with Machu Picchu, Peru in general with it's beautiful scenery, and the people. Our tour director, Marcos Farfan, was wonderful! His ability to speak Quecha allowed us several very special opportunites, where we were able to visit the indigenous people in their work and home environment. One special memory was stopping by a family, out in their fields attending to their crops ... Marcos's ability to communicate with the family allowed us to see a real family in their natural environment. I am 74 and Marcos's helper, Alexis, helped me get to the top of the mountain so I could see the view of Machu Picchu, I had dreamed about all my life ... Every part of our trip was wonderful both for me and for my 23 year old granddaughter. It was a trip that transcended our ages and held wonder for both of us ... Thank you, Gate 1 for another successful trip!

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip to Peru. It was packed with fun, challenging activities & I will be recommending Gate 1 to other people (in fact, I already have). The trip was even more enjoyable due to the expertise of the tour manager, Arturo Espinoza. He was very knowledgable and professional. Arturo was very personable and charming, he was extremely helpful to everyone. He managed to keep the group together & he guided us through every itinerary smoothly. Arturo is a definite asset to the Gate 1 company and our group was lucky to have benefited from his guidance. I'm looking forward to another Discovery Tour in the near future.

My trip was AMAZING!!!! I have lived and worked overseas for 20+ years, so I travel a lot. I have never used an organized tour company before, I always make my own arrangements and do my own thing, but the logistics of planning a trip to Machu Picchu and limited availability of tickets pushed me to try a tour for this trip. OMG, it was the best experience! The staff (guide Marcos Farfan, his assistant Aldo, and driver Wilbert) was fantastic, the logistics were flawless, the group was diverse/interesting/fun, and the value for money was exceptional. My opinion of organized tours has completely changed, and I will definitely be looking to Gate 1 in the future for another trip (quite possibly with some of my new friends from this one!).
