Jesus Cardenas did an above exceptional job! His saavy saved us so much time. He always knew what time to get us going in the morning to avoid crowds, maneuvered crowds to give us the optimum exposure and photos. I would recommend him and Adventure Life to anyone traveling to South America!! Thanks for a wonderful experience!

This trip through Adventure Life was flawless. From the impeccable timing with the driver, Joel to the amazing cooks and porters on our treks and lastly our fearless leader, Mario Salas. Mario Salas, along with the others, treated us like family members from the moment we met at the airport. Mario Salas shared his passion for his country and the heritage left behind through his words and actions on the entire trip. Thanks to Mario and his humorous spirit balanced with this knowledge, we left Peru with a deep understanding of the history including the Inca's and the Spaniards, religions, politics, agriculture, customs, cuisine and so much more. Mario Salas is very special and created a desire in us to return to Peru and spend more time with him and his country. Adventure Life, hold on to him and his crew! They made this a trip that we will always remember. Thank you for your attention to detail. It did not go unnoticed. You have earned life time clients in us. Thank you again!

Peru Adventure, May 2016
I was amazed at how great the guides were and what a treat it was to have everything arranged. Everyone we came in contact with from Adventure Life were so helpful and friendly. It was an incredible trip thanks to all. Kassi and Kate did a wonderful job of getting us everything we wanted out of our Peruvian Trip!

Peru Adventure!, May 2016
Edwin in Cusco was an excellent guide. Very accommodating (stopping to look for birds) actually brought a bird book to help me in my passion. Made sure we were able to climb Huyana Picchu, one of our goals, by preparing us on hills and steps. Nancy did not feel confident to do the climb so he gave her acceptable alternative and accompanied me. Both my sister and I were impressed with how Edwin and Lima guide kept all visitors to the rules. Edwin was not inclusive, ready to help out other tourists. We thought he was great. Also, Ericson on Delfin was an excellent naturalist. Thank you to the Deflin for not leaving us when we were late. Would love to do Inca Trail with friends with Edwin as guide. Thank you.

Machu Picchu by Train, May 2016
We've been back now for a week, and continue to marvel at how smoothly the trip went. The itinerary was clear to a fault, hotel choices very good. The combination of Adventure Life's good planning and our guide's expertise resulted in an experience that we could not have planned by ourselves. Kudos to Erin for a great itinerary, and to Veronika including her suggestion of Machu Picchu Mountain when Huayna Picchu was sold out, which made Tim's trip very special. Maria enjoyed the Orchid Tour at Inkaterra very much while Tim was hiking. There are no words to describe the contribution that our guide Mario TribeƱo brought to our trip: he was knowledgeable, friendly, local (born/raised in Ollantaytambo), patient, while keeping us on track. He became family for 5 days, and any traveler should feel lucky to have him. Have traveled for many years, he is the best guide that we have ever had. He went beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome (for example: he didn't have to climb Machu Picchu mountain with Tim, but did).

Galapagos Adventure, May 2016
The Ocean Spray was a beautiful boat. The cabin was very large, bathroom new and spacious--would have thought we were in a hotel room, not an eight cabin cat! The staff was outstanding and being sick on board, they went out of their way to make sure I was being attended to.

Machu Picchu Pilgrimage, Apr 2016
Five stars all the way, and I would have added 5 more to each as my trip was truly that perfect. Loved Mario Salas, master guide. Our camp chef nourished us so well and I took photos of ALL meals, as they were exceptional. Smiles and attention given to us by the porters daily as they kept an eye out for what ever they could provide to make us comfortable. They were charming and I wept when it was time to say good-bye.

The Romantic Danube on the MS Amabella, Apr 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our adventure. The Ama Bella is a lovely ship with good accommodations. The staff was very good and I especially enjoyed my towel sculptures from Miller. The food was too good. Breads and deserts galore. We made some good friends on the trip and we learn a lot about life in the past and now in Central Europe. I would recommend some days up front in Prague and at the end in Budapest before flying home.

Galapagos + Amazon, Apr 2016
I could not be happier with my Adventure Life experience, from beginning to end. I travel a lot, and I think your company and personnel do an outstanding job. I truly appreciate your professionalism, attentiveness, and flexibility. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company and would be happy to serve as a reference.

Machu Picchu by Train, Apr 2016
We can not say enough about this amazing bucket list trip that we took. Adventure Life was so helpful in every way. The National Geographic staff on the Endeavor were all excellent and we learned so much. However, we really want to give credit to our local guides in Peru. Santiago was the BEST! He really showed his love and passion for his country. He was so informative and he watched us all very carefully to make sure we were tolerating the elevation and all of the stair climbing..:). We cannot say enough about Santiago, Marco, Henry and Katie who were also with us on parts of the journey. I loved Cuzco so much, I would love to go back some day. Thanks so much for such a wonderful adventure!

This trip was amazing!! Everything went so smoothly while we were there. Santiago, Henry, and Marco had everything taken care of I didn't need to worry about a thing. All of our hotels were to die for, I can't wait to plan my next trip with Adventure Life!
