My experience with Reponsable has just been fantastic.
I find personalizing one´s trip an exciting way to explore not only Peru, but also other countries.
I first had a WhatsApp call with Alejandro to explain him my destination, trip duration and especially, what are my interest points. After that, Alejandro returned me with his great insight and feedback, introducing me the routes & possibilities that I´d never thought or read that Cusco & Titicaca would offer me.
- The guide that they offered me was amazing! Not only knowledgeable, but also very caring and good photographer (for a sole traveler, this is essential)! You can notice that, when they are well paid, they are more willing to perfect their job
- Surprisingly, I did my first mountain bike in my life in Ollantaytambo
- I did a llama trek solely, basically walked up to a hill in companion with apx 15 llamas, with 2 natives and had a quite picnic
- I spent the whole Christmas with Titicaca´s natives and I even explored villages and regions in which seemingly I was the only foreigner during that period
The whole wasn´t cheap, but certainly every penny was worthy taking into considerations that all the brand new experience that I had and all the unbelievable stuff I did.

We were very pleased with our trip, and especially with Eloy, our wonderful personal guide. The drivers were very helpful and friendly, and the hotels Responsible Travel selected for us turned out to be lovely places to stay. We are committed to sustainable travel, and we feel the trip was much more ecologically sound because we worked with a responsible company. Kudos to everyone involved!

The main aim of my trip was to practice Spanish in various homestays to gain an insight into Peruvian culture, and that is exactly what I got! I was so impressed with how smoothly everything went, and how my personal travel advisor, Pauline, was able to organize such a unique experience.
That I could message Pauline, Rosbert or their colleagues on Whatsapp was especially useful during transfers if taxis did not turn up on time, and gave me reassurance that if anything did go wrong I could always get help. I also wanted to mention the taxi drivers (I don’t know their names!) that picked me up in Lima when I first arrived, and the taxi driver that dropped me off in my final days in Lima, because they were extremely welcoming and talkative which put me at ease as soon as I arrived. It makes such a difference having good taxi drivers because they were often a friendly reassurance when I first arrived anywhere, as well as an extra chance to practice more Spanish.
The tips Respons gave me of things to do when I had free time really helped with structuring my days. The Colca Canyon was one of the best weekends I’ve had. Both these families in Sibayo and Coporaque were so friendly and welcoming, and I would love to return to see them again and explore more of the Canyon another time! I also really enjoyed the Salkantay Trek, making good friends, enjoying the delicious meals, and exploring the beautiful landscapes, with the reassurance of being able to use the back-up van when I injured my knee. It’s so good to know that the company acts as a mini-NGO providing support, training and guidance for local communities and training female porters.
I also enjoyed the Albergue Pankotsi experience in Manu. I particularly enjoyed getting to know Jesús and Walter, and Juan Carlos was also so kind and helpful and everyone did such a good job at giving me a memorable and enjoyable experience! I especially enjoyed the jewellery-making workshop with the kind owner’s wife and daughters (I feel awful to have forgotten their names!) and it was good to meet women from the community.
I loved all the hotels I stayed in, and Ninos Hotel in Cusco was especially good to have as a luxury break from the rest of the homestays and treks. I didn’t realize their restaurant runs from 6am-10pm until I got there, which was even more of an extra.
It is so great to know that my trip has contributed to sustainable tourism, benefitting Peruvians as much as possible, rather than a big package-deal international company. Overall, my trip was a fantastic experience and I’ve come back home with a love of Peru and definitely wanting to return again to re-visit some of the same places and explore more of the north as well!

Excellent trip, good hotels, well organized and planned. We especially want to recommend our wonderful guide in the Andes, Eloy Chambi Molina. Very knowledgeable, deeply connected to the old culture, he taught us about the plants and flowers along the trails, the customs and practices of the peoples of the Inca empire. He added so much to our experience. A terrific very engaging person. Highly recommended.

We spent almost 10 days with this excellent team in Peru and Bolivia. The whole tour was absolutely perfect! Organization, guides, support, hotels selection, local families etc etc. Resp travel agency is definitely one of the best organizations we have travelled with so far. I really wish there is more such professionals in this area in other countries!

Recently returned from Peru organized by Responsible. Simply gave them our flight arrival & a list of what we wanted 2 do. Organized our 2 week trip hour by hour. From the drivers who transported us between airports, hotels n train stations to the guides who walked us around Lima, thru the Andes and up M Picchu. Extremely accommodating and knowledgeable staff booked all the hotels, organised lunch boxes, booked riding. We just had to turn up - no stress, no worries..didn't even have to think! Thank you, Alison

Everything is very well organized, everyone is in time. Nice to have good local guides en drivers. The places to stay are always very special, not a regular hotel. I can strongly recommend this company.

We used Responsible Travel Peru services in our trip to Peru in October 2017. The service was very good, everything was very well organized and the experiences were great. We can also highlight the attention we received from the staff. We hope to repeat the experience in the near future.

Review by Obaid Sserumkuma2 years ago
I had an amazing time during my 3 days Trekking with Responsible Travel (I took the tour called "La aventura del cafe 3d/2n, a 3 days trekking to Machu Picchu).
On this tour, you get the chance to sleep for 2 nights at local coffee farms, so, instead of sleeping in tents, we had a warm and confortable room, and also the owners of the farm prepared our dinner and breakfast with local food - and it was delicious! They were so lovely, and we could also do a walking tour at the coffee fields and see the processing facilities. In the end, we enjoyed samples of the coffee they produce there.
Beside of that, the trekking was also good. Our guide, Miguel, was very attentive. He speaks spanish and english.
We were on a group of just 2 (me and myboyfriend), plus the guide, so everything was made just for us.
I highly recommend Responsible Travel if you are looking for tours with small groups, good guides, and personal attention. Everything was perfect from the time they came to my hotel to explain the tour, to the moment we ended the tour and arrived at Aguas Calientes to visit Machu Picchu!
