Machu Picchu Pilgrimage

John Carstens (Machu Picchu Pilmgrimage, Mar 2016)

Our guide was truly exceptional. Teddy has a deep appreciation for the culture that he educated us about and he was invaluable when our flight home got delayed and rescheduled.

Gretchen Helweg (Galapagos + Peru Adventure, Mar 2016)

Our guide, Rafael Arevalo, was superlative. We tried, but could not think of one single thing that he could have done to make our trip more enjoyable! He anticipated every need, accommodated every request and completely surpassed all expectations. When doing exotic travel in the future we would go first to Adventure Life due to this truly fabulous experience.

Mary Courteau (Machu Picchu Pilgrimage, Jun 2015)

Islands and Incas

Our guide in Peru was Mario and he was excellent!! Highly recommend him. The Millennium guides changed a couple of times, as the first guide hurt himself. We ended up with Robert, who was excellent.

Patricia Lewis (Machu Picchu and the Galapagos, May 2015)

This was by far my favorite vacation thanks to Adventure Life. I've traveled to many wonderful countries in my lifetime but never have I experienced so much in such a short period of time. The Adventure Life guides couldn't have been more knowledgeable and accommodating.

Machu Picchu by Train

Lisa Bridge (Machu Picchu by Train, Feb 2016)

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.

Matt McMullen (South America - Trip of a lifetime!, Dec 2015)

Frankly put, everything about the trip was fantastic. It was truly the trip of a lifetime and Adventure Life's planning made all the difference in the world.

Great trip! Machu Picchu was fabulous as was the Galapagos boat tour. Travel arrangements were terrific, guides always on time as were transfers!

Cindy Chumrau (Machu Picchu by Train and Galapagos Cruise on the Legend, Nov 2015)

We did not have to worry about anything. All details were taking care of and it made for a very relaxing, educational, stress-free vacation. We had one snafu with a hotel reservation but our guide took care of it and it worked out just fine. In fact it was taken care of before we even knew it was a problem.

William Pierce (Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca, Oct 2015)

Our guide, Ayul in Cusco, Machu Picchu, etc. was excellent!

Manco Multisport

Kevin Simms (Manco Multisport, Mar 2015)

This trip was amazing. From the start planning it over a year ago everything went smoothly. They let us tweak the trip to how we wanted, they kept us in the loop for flight changes and just too the stress out of planning. Then During the Trip our guide was amazing! It was great. He knew the answers to all the questions we asked and gave us tons of incredible information. He meshed well at dinner with our group by telling hilarious stories about past travel groups and just life stories in general. Our food was fantastic! Every day we were hiking we would get done and just be tired and a little chilled, but the chef's had warm soup and tea and our entire camp site set up and ready for us. It was just amazing. I had a blast on this trip, the sites were breathtaking, there was no stress, and we got to do tons of stuff. I would and have been recommending this to everyone.

Cordillera Blanca Trek

Amanda Haddad (Cordillera Blanca Trek, Apr 2015)

Everything was absolutely amazing. Our guide, Christian, and hotel staff were kind, attentive, helpful, and caring. Everyone went above and beyond to help me.... Everyone I spoke with was incredibly helpful from Milagros and Fabiola in Peru to the staff in the US-- THANK YOU!!!!! I cannot say enough good things.

Wild Tambopata

Troy Coberly (Wild Tambopata, Jun 2015)

Everything went as planned. Had the time of my life. The only thing that I would suggest is that you need an extra night in Lima before you get on the plane home, to clean up and get your gear cleaned..no matter how hard you try, you still smell like a 10,000 year old rain forest...

Patrik Guggisberg (Discover Peru and Wild Tambopata, Sep 2014)

Our Peru trip was amazing! All the transfers worked perfectly and the guides were always on time. We did 3 days with Perol Chico. It has really been one of our highlights on the trip!All in all, great trip, great experiences, great planning! Thank you Adventure Life! And thank you particularly to Erin, Sullivan and Laura.

Easter Island

Sandra Wagner (Easter Island, Feb 2016)

Tommy was a wonderful guide. We really enjoyed our time with him and the whole trip was great!

Rechelle Paranal (Easter Island, Sep 2015)

What an amazing experience. My husband and I don't typically do guided tours since we prefer to research a location, "plant" ourselves in a neighborhood, and immerse ourselves within in the culture. HOWEVER, every time we do a guided tour (Belize, Easter Island) we use Adventure Life. The guides are locals and have always provided us with a fascinatingly unique perspective. Josie, our guide on Easter Island, was extremely knowledgeable about Rapa Nui history and had an amazing candor that brought the historic as well as current life of the island alive.

Dianna Williamson (Easter Island, Dec 2014)

The trip ran smoothly from start to finish. The guide was amazing and made our trip on the island extra special. Thank your fine ladies for me Mary and Jodi who were just wonderful from start to finish. Our next trip will definitely be with your company.

Carlisle Chenault (Easter Island, Oct 2014)

Ramon was an excellent guide. Very interesting with personal tales of Easter Island from an historic point of view and familial.

Cachiccata Trek

Karyn Coppinger (Cachiccata Trek, Apr 2015)

Juan Barrios was a fabulously experienced and wonderful guide. He was knowledgeable, kind, helpful, and funny. The trip was well organized an executed, and we loved what we saw and learned about the that part of Peru. The chef on the trek was inspired, lots of wonderful dishes and plenty of variety, lots of fresh food. Wait staff (Martin) porters and wranglers also worked hard and made the trip quite enjoyable.

Newton Debardeleben (Cachiccata Trek, Apr 2015)

This was the first guided trip I have ever taken and thought it was great! Juan was a wonderful, professional guide and I would highly recommend him.

Craig Kling (Cachiccata Trek, Apr 2015)

Juan was an excellent guide and I learned a whole lot about Inca and Peru. It was a great trip.

Manny Kiesser (Cachiccata Trek, Oct 2014)

Really amazing trip. This itinerary seems a well-kept secret. Edwin helped out with some extras that weren't part of the itinerary, namely getting us some extra time with the pacco and squeezing in a trip to Chinchero, where the textile co-op stayed open an extra few hours to wait for us.

Aqua Amazon: Luxury Amazon Discovery

Roy Fruiterman (Aria Amazon Cruise and Machu Picchu, Mar 2015)

The attention to detail, and the feeling of security we had while we were with Adventure Life staff and guides, is unparalleled. Your guides are passionate about their homeland. Their love for the Amazon, the Andes, and the people therein, is contagious and exhilarating.

Activity-wise Erin did a great job in suggesting hikes which were unique and very special. For guides Alan was very knowledgeable and did a great job. However Gonzalo Lima was outstanding.
