This active program covers a good amount of ground each day. Expect from two to three hours walking on some touring days. The pace is moderate, however you will encounter some uneven surfaces, stairs, steps and significant slopes. A few early wake-ups, some at 4 or 5 AM, as well as one long 10-hour drive to Puno are necessary to cover the territory. 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 high altitude. We suggest you check with your health-care provider before signing up for this tour. Some hotels in 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 Classic program. For more information, click here.

This trip was beyond amazing! Peru has so much to offer and our guide, Ruben, was wonderful. He was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. He took us to wonderful restaurants, had great recommendations about what to do in the villages/cities during our leisure time, and even took it upon himself to walk around with a few of us during leisure time. Julio, our assistant tour manager, was also very knowledgeable - he and Ruben worked very well together! My partner on the trip got some altitude sickness symptoms and Ruben took wonderful care of him. Ruben made sure there was never a dull moment because he took the time to tell us stories and teach us about culture as we traveled from one destination to another. Beautiful hotels, especially Inkaterra! This was a great experience to practice my Spanish with locals (Ruben and Julio also both helped me)! I was pleasantly surprised about how seriously Peru took Covid precautions and was happy to comply. I have loved all of my Gate1 trips (I believe this was my 4th), and I recommend Gate1 every chance I get! Hope to travel with Gate1 again soon!Aubryn S.
Recently returned from Peru -A Hotels trip. I must commend both Edgar and Marcos as our leaders. They BOTH went above and beyond throughout the tour, but especially at Machu Picchu, where Marcos assisted several of us who were stressed due to altitude and terrain. He personally guided several folks individually to ensure their safety. He was the "million dollar man"! Edgar was simply stellar throughout. He used repetition to stress the important points and it worked. He is a jewel of a person. His tour of the Cathedral and Museum in Cuzco was the finest I have experienced in more than 20 years of touring churches. His nickname is 24/7 and it's true. He phoned each room at every stop to ensure all was OK after checking in each hotel. He is a 5 star employee and you should be very proud of Edgar.Michael S.
We LOVED Gate 1. It was our first time traveling with them and it was SUPER!! Every detail was well taken care of and provided for. I felt very safe and comfortable in a foreign country where I cannot speak the language. I was concerned over what I might encounter but Gate 1 completely took care of any concerns. We had a fabulous trip and I will certainly travel with them again and again!! Our tour guide, Washington was WONDERFUL!! So informative and dedicated to our trip. He took a personal interest in each person on the tour. He presented the culture in such a personal and sincere manner. I learned so much from him. He was so helpful and available for every question, concern or thought. Very knowledgeable. He also made it fun with his sense of humor and insight. His assistants were likewise as marvelous! Ernesto, Roberto, Alexis and even the bus drivers were EXCELLENT! Thank you GATE 1 (and the Peru tour guides) for making our trip a FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!Catherine E.
One can't but love our Tour Guide, Ruben. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable and professional but also has a GREAT sense of humor. It was obvious that he would do anything and everything to make sure we had a safe and wonderful experience. This was my first Gate 1 tour. IF the other Gate 1 Tour Guides are half as good as Ruben, then I'm sold on Gate 1. That's how impressed I was with Ruben. I was also impressed with our Driver, Julio. THANK YOU, RUBEN AND JULIO!James F.
Our 14 day Peruvian Legend trip was very beautiful. We learned at lot of stuff about the history and culture of Peru. Our tour guide Victor was very knowledgeable about the history and culture and he explained and took care of us very well. I would recommend this trip to everyone. Machu Picchu was the highlight of this trip. I also enjoyed Lake Titicaca with Uros floating island made with totora reeds with the uros inhabitant and totora reed boat.Meena S.
I had such an amazing time and experience during my trip to Peru. The program itinerary was immersive and very engaging. Many thanks to our extraordinary and exceptional tour manager, Raul Fernando and his team, Julio, local guide in Cusco, Broz, local guide in Puno and our super driver, Ernesto. The entire team, with Raul Fernando's leadership, was exemplary. They made sure that everyone was safe, especially during this time of pandemic and constantly reminded everyone to be careful and sanitize our hands everywhere we go. Each tour member was provided hand sanitizer as we board the bus and required to wear masks. Each hotel has mats entrances to sanitize footwear. Some of the hotels sprayed alcohol on our clothes (front & back) and anything else we are carrying as we enter the hotels. Hotel restaurants have tables set far apart. The government of Peru requires masks even outdoors and double masks in all indoor places, with some places requiring face shields in addition to the double masks. I felt safe the entire trip and truly had a memorable experience. Many thanks to the local team for also having a very organized Covid testing for our return trip. I hope that I will have the same memorable experience on my upcoming trip to Iceland.Livia L
Our trip to Peru was supposed to be a girls trip to Amsterdam but COVID hit and that trip was canceled. So the 3 of us kept looking for another Gate 1 trip and the 10 day Peru trip popped up on the Gate 1 site. We decided YES this will be our girls trip. What a great vacation and outstanding tour guides. Our guides were so knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable. The activities were the best. The hotels were OUTSTANDING. As 3 ladies leaving our husband's at home we requested 3 beds and each hotel accommodated us. The food in Peru was delicious as it was fresh daily. Of all the places we went I personally loved the floating islands at Lake Titicaca best. Yes we went to Machu Picchu and that too was amazing. I can't say enough about Gate 1 and our 10 day trip. You made each of us feel like family and met all out needs. We were pleased to see that Gate 1 helps a school in Peru. This is another reason they are #1.Catharine V.
We are very pleased with all tour guides and drivers, but having Marina with us the entire trip was excellent! She was not only well knowledge in the locations as well as being extremely organized/prepared or anticipated any questions or concerns we had, but very entertaining! She is a “hard working” woman. We all appreciate the excellent service she always provided with a big comforting smile and I love her jolly laugh. The itinerary provided a nice balance in learning about Rio de Janeiro, Iguazú Fall and Buenos Aires and time to explore on our own. This was another great experience with Gate 1 and we are looking forward to traveling with you again.Carolyn P. Manassas, VA
Every aspect of the trip was great. Well organized, great tour manager, good accommodations, good food, and amazing country. Overall a very good experience.Madhavi P. Dublin, CA
Our trip to South America was wonderful! The best compliment should go to our tour guide, Alejandro. His organization and thoughtfulness made the trip very enjoyable. The itinerary and hotels were very good too, though we had to have a very early start on couple of days. We will definitely spread the word about the trip to our friends.Tammy H. Walnut Creek, CA
The trip exceeded my expectations. Our guide Jorge is an expert guide and a very nice person. His passion for his work is evident as is his knowledge of local history and culture which he shares in the most interesting and understandable way. The other guides were excellent as well.Kathleen B. Portland, OR
It was fantastic! I couldn't have been more pleased with our tour manager, accommodations, food, etc. Our entire group was thrilled with our trip and we are making arrangements to travel to Ireland next September. I have already made our reservations and am contacting others in our group so they can make travel arrangements. We couldn't have done it without Gate 1. I would like to commend Rene, our tour manager, and Ernesto, our driver for the excellent service they provided to us. They were so accommodating to our group and had everything well organized. They are definitely an asset to your company and I would highly recommend them. Job well done! Looking forward to our next trip.Paula D. Waynesville, OH
Excellent! Good services, Excellent Hotel. Food is great. Tour Manger and Tour guide mastered their subjects and were very helpful!Dang N. Montreal, Quebec
It was wonderful. Beautiful scenery. Great hotels. A super tour director who worked overtime to make sure everyone had a great time. And, wonderful memorable visits and tours to some of the world's most spectacular sites. Gate 1 did a wonderful job at putting this tour together.Thomas J. Springfield, VA
Our trip was excellent. Americo was our tour manager and He had an excellent team to work with. They were always looking out for every person in our tour group to make sure, we all were safe and comfortable at all times. Thank you!Silvia H. Davie, FL
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.Victor C. Folsom, CA
This was one of my favorite Gate 1 trips. My daughter, Allison and I both really enjoyed ourselves. Our tour director, Rosanna was fantastic. We had a large group, and she handled it very well. Everyone was on time . That speaks for itself. Rosanna was knowledgeable and helpful, funny, polite, and always ready to help. She is one of the best ! The hotels we stayed at were beautiful. Also, they were centrally located , which made our lives much easier for exploring on our own. Our local tour guides, Pablo and Gisella were also very good. Great personalities and fun to be with. I loved visiting the school. I think it is wonderful that Gate 1 donates money to those less fortunate. I have nothing bad to say. Thank you Gate 1, thank you Rosanna for a memorable vacation.Claire G. Delray Beach, FL
It was marvelous! My daughter and I were in a group going to Rio de Jeniro and Buenos Aires. Our guide, Lucas, was helpful, friendly, and informative. Carlos, our city guide was also friendly, helpful and informative. They were very professional and attentive to our needs. We learned a lot of new things about the history of Brazil and Argentina. We will recommend this and other tours to friends and family.Loretta G. Deerfield Beach, FL
Excellent trip ! My first time with Gate 1 tour and I am very impressed. Our tour manager Henry is excellent, very good: knowledgeable (knows his stuff well), helpful, reliable there all the time, very organized and excellent management of the tour, responsible, looks after everyone, very conscientious and friendly, motivated, caring, kind-hearted, generous, honest.... what more can I say. Can't find any tour manager better than Henry ! He made our trip so very enjoyable, no stress ! Will not hesitate to join Gate 1 tour again.Philip C. Richmond Hill, Canada
We would like to thank you for a fabulous trip to Argentina, Chile and Easter Island. Everything went according to plan, hotels were great, we loved all 3 of them, the offered excursions (we took the one to Valparaiso and Viña del Mar and the sunrise over the Moai) were awesome and our tour guides were great. We would like to commend Veni, Nelson and Lili for their outstanding support and assistance. The tidbits of information they offered on the respective countries was well researched, good and helpful information regarding customs, history, politics, any topic we had a question about was answered. The professional and caring guides and their drivers were available when stated, the airport pickups were timely and I especially wanted to mention Nelson who was the one to pick us back up from when we landed from Rapa Nui back in Santiago and he made sure we all knew about our onward travel arrangements. Veni came to see us off on the morning of departure to Rapa Nui and Lili at Rapa Nui was full of anecdotes and I understand she also participates in local dances which were very well received by the participants who went to the event. In all, it was another successful Gate 1 tour and we will look forward to book with you in the future. Please extend our thanks again to the great guides we had, our group to Easter Island was small and we will stay in touch which is an added bonus of making new friends who share the love of travel.Carroll and Sabine M. Florence, AZ
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.Vanessa G. Laurel, MD
Our trip was fabulous. Not only beautiful scenery especially Iguzu but the food, people and culture was awesome. Our guide, Sylvia, was the best ever. She was quick, organized, thoughtful, knowledgeable and all the time with a smile and patience with everyone.Eleanor D. Charleston, SC
My trip was wonderful! Gate 1 is the best! Our guide, Fede, did so many extra things to make us feel special. You have my loyalty because you deliver quality and service!Patricia G. Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
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!Pamela D. LeRoy, WV
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.Dainan M. Upland, CA
The trip was WONDERFUL!! Another Gate 1 success!!! I highly recommend this trip. Our tour manager, Lucas, was the absolute BEST!! I have never had a bad tour manager at Gate 1 but Lucas went well above and beyond in being attentive to us and seeking the best experiences for us. He is one of my top 2 all time favorites with Gate 1 tours.Karen G. White House, TN
The trip was outstanding. The guide, Edgar, and his assistant, Henry, couldn’t have been more helpful or knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone considering a trip to Peru.Ruth M. Henderson, NV
It was lovely! Rogger and Pepe were wonderful, handling anything that came up and making sure we were all well looked after. Jose, our Lima guide, was excellent and Victor, our driver, navigated those mountain roads so well. A beautiful country with a rich history and culture. Machu Picchu was amazing!Kathryn C. British Colombia, Canada
The SA trip was busy but great. We are amazed at how much we saw in two weeks. The Delta Comfort Plus seats were worth every penny. I knew about the famous SA cities but the spectacular natural sights of Chile and Argentina Andes / lake districts and the Iguazu falls were a huge surprise. We had amazingly good weather in these normally rainy areas. Our guides were first rate particularly Jorge, our tour director. Jorge took care of everyone individually ... We have done mostly DIY touring in the past but we could not have planned and maneuvered such a complex and complete tour on our own without a lot of uncertainty, discomfort, and risk. So far we are big Gate 1 fans.Carl B. Catonsville, MD
We had a great trip, and Rapa Nui (Easter Island) was the highlight. Silvia was our tour manager, and she did a super job; not only organizing and arranging our activities, but also because she was very knowledgeable about restaurants and available services wherever we were. And Gino, our guide on Rapa Nui, was so good at painting a picture of the way things were that we could almost see the Moai being moved to their places on the island. And, thanks to Silvia, we were able to see the sunrise through the Moai on our final day.Jeannine M. Goodyear, AZ
The tour was great! We had an amazing time in Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. It was more than I could have ever dreamed of. Our tour guide Alex was excellent, and the group of people traveling with us were the loveliest people ever. The meals were the best, plenty of great wine. WE HAD A GREAT TIME! GATE 1 GETS AN AA +Sara G. San Antonio, TX
We had a GREAT trip. The weather cooperated, we saw spectacular scenery ... Our group was very compatible and our tour guide, SILVIA was THE BEST!!!!! This will go down as one of our favorite Gate 1 adventures!Stephanie S. Port Angeles, WA
The trip and hotels were great. Edgar, the tour manager is very professional. Gate 1 is a very organized and efficient traveling company. We are so impressed. We love Gate 1!Peter C. Greenvale, NY
The trip was fantastic with Easter Island being spectacular. Veni, our guide was also phenomenal. Wow!Cynthia H. Estes Park, CO
I had an amazing trip; the Glaciers of Patagonia were majestic, the waterfalls of Iguazú were spectacular, and the beaches of Rio were seductive. I left a piece of my heart in Buenos Aires.Heather B. Antioch, CA
It was excellent. All of the services promised by Gate 1 were carried out efficiently and as scheduled. Our tour guide, Rosana, was superb. Friendly and cheerful. Very informative. Helpful to everyone. Extremely well organized. All three places on the itinerary were fascinating. The included meals were very good. The included excursions were enjoyable. Even the weather was ideal.Richard L. Jamul, CA
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!Denise H. Blairstown, NJ
... Our tour guide Miss Silvana was very energetic and kind and she was on top of everything. She is an amazing loving lady that we were fortunate to have her as our tour guide for the entire trip. Everyone in our group loved her and very much satisfied with her managing the entire tour.Suren M. Manchester, MO
Our trip was wonderful. This is our 7th trip with Gate 1 and I have to say that our tour guide Silvana was exceptional. Not only attentive to the group as a whole but she also took very good care of each and every person individually. Her professionalism, patience, kindness and pleasant personality is to be recognized and commended. Our group in particular meshed very well from the beginning and despite the differences in nationalities and culturally we quickly bonded. Making it for a really amazing experience. The highlight of our trip was Iguazu Falls for both my husband and myself. Truly special!Diana R. Orlando, FL
This was our 5th trip with Gate 1 Travel. It was one of the best ever. Alex is one of your best tour director's ... He went above and beyond in customer satisfaction ... He took us on the guided tour, and pointed out all the dinning options. KUDOS!! To Alex for his attention to all of us in his tour.Bernard P. Attleboro, MA
We had a wonderful trip! The airline trip was really long but all the connections were ready and left on time. Ale was a terrific tour guide and kept us right on schedule! The sights of each place were great and lived up to more than our expectations! It was not too rushed to get from place to place and there was plenty of time to enjoy each experience. The hotels chosen by Gate 1 Travel were perfect. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Breakfast was great every day. We can’t say enough good things about the bus drivers we had every step of the way, always professional and friendly at all times. Bravo for our wonderful tour!Sheila R. SHAWNEE ON DE, PA
This trip was very interesting, many historical sites to see. It was very well organized, without needing to worry about anything. And our tour manager, Alejandro, was amazing - patient, caring, funny; would not be the same without him. It was my first trip with Gate 1 and I truly enjoyed it.Irina C. Santa Clara, CA
It was a great trip. Iguazu Water Falls is stunning, way beyond my expectations. The tour manager Flavio is very professional, warm hearted and helpful.Qiye C. Los Angeles, CA
Outstanding! I will definitely travel with Gate 1 again and of course recommend Gate 1. Everyone was wonderful! Our guides were great; knowledgeable, professional and friendly. We would love to especially commend your company for Marco who was our manager guide ... But he was above OUTSTANDING! He made sure everyone was fine, together and on time. He went out of his way to make everyone feel safe and comfortable from our arrival to the minute of departure. He is truly an asset to this company. My daughter did not like to travel with any company, instead she made her own arrangements, however, after this trip she has changed her mind and commends you for such an organized trip. We loved it and you will see us back! Thank you so much for such a beautiful experience. By the end of the trip our manager had us all feeling in a family atmosphere. Thank you Gate 1 Travel!Cristina H. Chino Hills, CA
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.Ramon G. Milwaukee, WI
It was marvelous. Our tour manager, Noelia, was extraordinary: sunny personality, had everything organized, attended to all details, was so kind and helpful in every way, extremely knowledgeable and a terrific communicator. The trip covered main sights, and had a good balance. I can’t imagine anyone doing it better. The tour members were lots of fun, a diverse group, and everyone was very pleasant and fun. I’m hoping to have my third Gate 1 experience soon.Sylvia D. Laguna Woods, CA
We just returned from our 10-Day Classic Brazil and Argentina Trip, and it was absolutely superb. The hotels we stayed at were all very conveniently and centrally located, and the food provided by Gate 1 Travel was excellent. Special thanks to our guide, Lucas Davicino, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, who was very professional and an all around exceptional tour guide. We're already planning our third trip with Gate 1 Travel for next year!Wung K. Olney, MD
Our trip was absolutely brilliant. The itinerary was great and all flowed so smoothly. Our guides were outstanding, especially Noellia in Rio and Iguaco and Buenos Aires. She is an absolute gem, went over and above for her clients and was so friendly and helpful. I am recommending Gate 1 to all my friends! It was the trip of a lifetime for us.Kathryn B.

I wanted to share that my trip to Peru was my first trip with Gate 1 Travel. I wanted to share that my experience was nothing but wonderful ... Ruben Aragon demonstrated such passion, patience and a love for Peru that it made my trip that much more amazing. We were able to see a lot of what Peru had to offer, talk to and interact with the local people of Peru. I felt safe, heard and really taken care of throughout the trip. Great job Gate 1! I will definitely be booking through Gate 1 again. Thank youLucrecia R. Providence, RI
The trip was fantastic. It was well organised and our tour guides were great. Raul Callapina the Machu Picchu and lake Titicaca guide was very enthusiastic and passionate about Inca culture it’s ‘contagious’. Abelardo our Amazon guide was great in showing us interesting places. Gate1 is travel is #1.Ruth W. Western Australia, AU
