A trip to Peru, if you plan on seeing all the sites, is a logistical nightmare. Trains, planes, autos, and boats !! Incas Expert Travel handled our trip flawlessly. Everytime we stepped off a boat, plane, train or auto an English speaking guide awaited us. Never once did we need to look for help. The guides are the best, special shout out to Henry in Puno, Juan Carlos in the Sacred Valley and sandro in Bolivia. All guides were knowledgeable, bilingual and enthusiastic about their tours. I highly recommend James and the group at Incas Expert Travel for the best Inca experience possible.

Amazing company, why? Because they truly care about each person and tend to EVERY SINGLE detail to a T.
James made sure all our questions and concerns were answered in great detail.
The tour guides and drivers that they contract with were walking historians. Details were important to everyone.
The food and lodging were 5 star.
The trek company that they contract with, Wayki were beyond imaginable. The guide, Fredy, the cooks Timoteo, Jose and Isidro the porter were so thorough, looking out for our safety while showing us the most extreme and amazing trek, history, geography, culture, cuisine, nothing was taken for granted. Everyone made sure our time was amazing.
I will tell everyone about this trip!!

Absolutely hands down the best trip I’ve ever taken and it’s all due to our wonderful travel advisor, Liz. She made it easy from start to finish. She listened to our travel and budget requests. She was timely, efficient, professional, and beyond helpful. I don’t think we would have been able to plan this trip without her help. There are so many fine details when it comes to planning a trip to Machu Picchu and Liz made everything so easy. Additionally, everything was even better than expected. The hotels were wonderful as were all of the staff, drivers, etc who helped along the way. We felt confident and safe during the entire trip. Would recommend more than 5 stars if possible! Do yourself a favor and book through Inca Experts (and request Liz!)

We had an absolutely wonderful trip and experience with Incas Expert. James was incredibly easy to deal with and prompt in response. We put in a request for the itinerary we'd prefer, and James made it happen with ease. All of our tour guides were wonderful, our transportation was always on time and easy to use, and the hotels were splendid (we did the 3-star accommodations).

Liz at Incas Expert put together an outstanding trip on very short notice. Every detail was handled perfectly. I could not have asked for a better itinerary. They were so accommodating and made adjustments for my preferences and time constraints. I can not recommend them highly enough.

Liz of Incas Expert travel was terrific. Highly recommend this travel company. We had a wonderful 2 week sojourn in Peru. Hotels were marvelous, guides were informative, excursions fun, flights on time...everything worked...and Liz handled all our emails and texts promptly and with TLC...tender loving care.

My experience with Incas Expert was professional and exceptional. I booked a last-minute trip to Machu Picchu through Incas Expert. The booking experience was smooth and I was met every step of the way by a local expert/guide during my trip. I would highly recommend them.

My husband and I just returned from a fantastic trip, hiking the Inca Trail for 4 days, spending several days in Cusco and finishing our trip on Lake Titicaca and Isla Suasi. Every detail, reservation, contact, and accommodation was expertly handled by Incas Expert Travel. Rachel was quick to reply to any and all questions and she also was available and responsive to our questions once we arrived in Peru. The Wayki Trek Team, leading us on the trail, exceeded all our expectations! I would highly recommend Rachel and Incas Expert Trave to anyone planning a trip to Peru.

Everything was excellent. Our transfers were all on time and the guides were very knowledgeable. When we arrived in Lima too late for our flight to Cusco, Rachel had already arranged a transfer and a room at a Lima hotel. She also rescheduled our chocolate workshop after we missed the first day of our trip. We loved the hotels, especially Sol y Luna and our Inca Trail hike with Miguel was incredible. With a group of 10, ages 9-73, it was so much easier to have Incas Expert taking care of all the logistics. Once we were all there, we were able to spend our time enjoying Peru!

Incas Expert travel was phenomenal to work with!!! Jackie was the best travel agent I've ever used! From planning the itinerary, to booking a trip of a lifetime, through our entire 15 days of dream vacation, EVERYTHING went incredibly smoothly. Highly, highly recommend!

Having private local tour guides made our Peru trip extra special in that we not only experienced so many special places, we learned so many insightful things from wach one. Having all the details with transportation and guides planned and coordinated also really made the trip special. Thank you for a lifelong exceptional experience.

I had done a long research with different travel agency. And I am glad that I chose Incas Expert Travel. From the beginning to the end, our trip advisor James Gilmore planned our itinerary base on what I like to see from each cities and booked all five stars hotel for us. Everywhere we went in Peru, we had a nice big van for our own group of 14 peoples. The driver and the tour guys are all very experience and professional. Even when we call for their emergency phone number late night to change our plan for next day due to altitude sickness issues. They have someone on call at night to answer your question and guide you if any problem. Incas Expert takes care all the detail everything we need for our tour, transportation, train ticket, domestic flight, ticket to Machu Picchu. Peru is definitely a adventure trip with lots of hiking on the mountains everyday on our itinerary but there is also tons of shopping to do in Peru as well. Incas Expert Travel has the best services, reliable, reasonable price packages and I would definitely recommend this travel agency to all my friends and family.

My 14 year old son and I completed a bucket list trip from June 30 through July 21 this year all across Peru. Incas Expert Travel planned the entire trip and we could not be happier. It was the perfect trip and every detail was scheduled so we had no questions or issues at all. Throughout the trip we had several group and private tour guides, all of which were super nice and knowledgeable. I cannot think of anything I would change. Rachel, our travel adviser was awesome to work with and even met us in Lima. The highlights were the 4-day trek to Machu Pichu, Via Ferrata, Cusco, the Amazon and my son ate so much bread he was nicknamed Panito! It was a trip of a lifetime thanks to Incas Expert Travel!

Rachel of Incas Expert Travel was a joy to work with and helped us plan our perfect "first time" trip to Peru. All of our expectations were exceeded and we felt we spent the perfect amount of time in each location and learned a ton from each of our amazingly knowledgeable and friendly guides (Ivan - Sacred Valley/Pisac, Ruth - Moray/Moras, Peter - Machu Picchu, Irene - Cusco and Jose - Lima). Incas Expert Travel's handling of the in-country travel logistics eliminated any worries we had and Rachel was super helpful with tips and recommendations for hotel and restaurants. We highly recommend using this service and are now looking into organizing a trip to Patagonia for 2020.

JOB WELL DONE!!!
17 DAY PERU TRIP
I don't usually post reviews; however, because this travel experience was so exceptional and the level of service provided was so good - I am going to post this review.
To begin, I found Incas Expert Travel online and because they were a "foreign" (read as "not based in the US") company, I was skeptical and hesitant to proceed.
However, after speaking with their staff and travel agents, specifically the agent helping me - Jackie Becker, and after receiving very professional informational brochures about the company and their services, I did not feel they were a "fly by night" operation and I chose to proceed.
To say that the company went "above and beyond" would be an absolute understatement.
I was looking for a "luxury travel agency" for Peru, and although there are high end travel agencies in the US that can book in Peru, those agencies did not have the flexibility, nor the local knowledge to customize the trip that Incas Expert Travel was able to put together for me.
I booked a 17 day trip for my family, the majority with private guides, private transfers, etc., and definitively nice hotels to stay (as this was my families first time to South America and I wanted to make sure they were comfortable).
After multiple conversations and e-mail's, Jackie and Incas Expert Travel put together a world class trip. I am a very seasoned traveler and concede that without their help, it would have been an impossibility to organize and book they trip and itinerary they put together for me.
I highly recommend the company and their agents. They are definitively a professional company and anyone that has any hesitation about booking with a company outside of the US - don't worry at all. They did a great job and I absolutely recommend Incas Expert Travel.

Thank you for coordinating an awesome travel experience to Peru. The levels of professionalism, attention to detail and customer service far exceeded my expectations.

We recently took a trip to Peru and had the pleasure of working with Jackie from Incas Travel. She really understood what we wanted and put together the best trip to Machu Piccu. We had so many choices with Incas travel as to what we wanted and we got a truly customized trip. We had two excellent tour guides - Javier and Peter - who I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Sacred Valley (Javier) and Machu Piccu (Peter). Everyone associated with Incas Travel was exceptionally professional and highly knowledgeable. Jackie and her team made sure we had a once in a lifetime experience!

Excellent service in every regard, aspect, and execution. I usually do all of my travel plans myself, but you and Inca Experts have given me something to rethink in the future.
I would recommend Inca Experts to any and everyone for their Machu Picchu Travel plans.

My family of three just got back from a fabulous trip to Peru. We worked with Liz to plan the trip. Everything was great -- accommodations, restaurants, guides, and transfers. Everything was planned so wonderfully that we never had to worry about anything. Liz was great in helping us plan and make decisions. I highly recommend Incas Expert!

James Gilmore Trip Advisor
This was my first experience working through a trip advisor to plan a multiple city and multiple tour destination trip. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our experience and how James Gilmore, our trip advisor at Incas Expert Travel, assisted and partnered with us to help coordinate our 12 day vacation. We spent 2 nights and 1 day touring Lima, 4 nights and 3 days touring the Amazon rainforest, 2 nights and 1 day touring Cusco, 3 nights and 4 days hiking the Old Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and a final night in Cusco prior to catching our flight back to the United States.
Things we liked about the trip itinerary and a few minor changes we would make if we were to do it over again: 1 day touring Lima was adequate for our liking. Highlights of our Lima tour was our visit to the Larco Museum and the San Francisco church and its historical catacombs. These are 2 must sees while visiting Lima as well as having a nice lunch at the Larcomar shopping center overlooking the Pacific Ocean watching surfers hone their skills. Our tour guide, Janet, could not have been more knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her to anyone touring Lima.
Our visit to the Amazon Rainforest was highlighted by our stay at the Inkaterra Hacienda Concepcion. Inkaterra Concepcion is an amazing place to stay with their private Cabanas and their local rainforest expert, Mirko, made our visit there exceptional. While we stayed there for 4 nights and 3 days, if I were to do it over again would recommend staying only 3 nights and 2 days. You definitely could see the majority of what Inkaterra has to offer with the shorter duration.
Our trip to Cusco prior to hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was too short when trying to get our bodies adjusted to the altitude in the mountains. We basically, only had 1 ½ days for our bodies to try and adjust and that was just not enough time. I was surprised about how the altitude really did impact that majority of first time visitors. Therefore, I would really recommend at least 2 full days and 3 nights in Cusco prior to a challenging hike like the Old Inca Trail. With that said, Machu Picchu and the Old Inca Trail was the highlight of our trip and it is definitely a must see for those looking for a challenging trek with amazing vista scenery. Wayki Trek was responsible for our Old Inca trail hike and Louis, a Cusco native, was our trek tour guide. Wayki Trek and its entire trek team/staff, from the porters to the chef, were amazing. I have never seen any group / team / brothers, as they like to call themselves, work so hard to provide to our every need / desire. Louis, our hiking guide, was top-notch and I would highly recommend anyone hiking around Cusco to leverage Wayki Trek and Louis. A highly professional / high quality organization for sure!
In closing; James Gilmore and the Incas Expert Travel organization did an exceptional job coordinate our first visit to Peru. The logistics were well planned, organized and communicated. When you are relying on multiple companies/parties to deliver a personalized and private vacation to the demands of a daily / hourly schedule Incas Expert Travel made it look easy and seamless. Thanks James for all your efforts and making our Peru vacation an extremely satisfying experience - one we will never forget.

Everything ran smoothly from the time we were picked up in airport in Cusco through being dropped off at the end of our week. The tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly. We had amazing drivers who navigated the streets of Peru safely. All the hotel accommodations were clean and comfortable. We had a great trip with memories that will last us a lifetime. Rachel, who coordinated our trip, held our hand along the way and was always accommodating to any changes or add-ons we asked for. I would wholeheartedly recommend this agency to anyone looking to explore Peru.

Fantastic customized tour with every detail taken care of. We were met at every point by a company rep and guided to our destination. Everything ran like a fine clock. The reps and guides were all highly qualified and friendly. There were just the two of us and we were cared for brilliantly. I would recommend Incas Expert Travel to anyone. Worth every penny.
