We just returned from an 6 day family vacation in Lima/Cusco and Machu Picchu. did an excellent job with planning and organizing our custom vacation. We were very pleased with the organization, promptness and attentiveness of our tour coordinator. We enjoyed mountain biking, archaeological sites, hiking, and wonderful dining. I would recommend Iletours and his company highly! 5 stars!
“The Best of the Best!!!”
We had the best time in Peru thanks to Mark and the Iletours team. We are quite
picky when it comes to our vacations and don’t settle for less than 5 star quality but they
made excellent recommendations and we stayed in the Best Hotels. The trip was very well
planned and coordinated and they were very patient with us considering the many changes we
made while planning the trip. Mark, our travel advisor, was very helpful and answered all our
questions before and during the trip. I recommend Iletours
“Completely Stress Free!”
I am so glad that we went with Iletours for our memorable trip to Macchu Picchu. From the planning stage to the actual trip, they have been excellent: very responsive to our e-mails during the planning stage and we felt very taken cared of during the actually trip. Our tour guide, Jair, is very knowledgeable and patient with us (especially with the questions of an archaeology and history enthusiast here).
Definitely Definitely recommend that if you want a stress free holiday in the great Machu Picchu, go with Iletours!
“Excellent and Perfect!”
We went out our honeymoon in October and used Iletours to book the whole 6 day trip. Everything went perfect; every private transport was on time, every guide spoke perfect English for our private tours. Mark arranged everything in Cusco and our guide Henry in Cusco/Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu was great! Would def.book with Iletours again when visiting Peru!
“Trip of a Lifetime!”
My husband and I booked our honeymoon to Peru through The Iletours Company. We traveled in October of 2014. Neither of us speak Spanish very well and decided it would be best to book everything through a travel company, which we've never done before. We couldn't be more happy with the service, tour guides, and exceptional planning. Everyone we interacted with was extremely friendly, resourceful, and nice. We traveled to 3 major cities/areas in Peru and all timelines were perfect. We couldn't have had a better trip. Our tour guide throughout Cusco, Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu, Mark, was excellent. We also went to Lima and Puerto Maldonado. Every city we went to we were always given all the information we needed up front on timelines and our next tours.
We honestly had the trip of a lifetime. I'd highly recommend this company if your traveling to Peru.
“Machupicchu fue increible, recomendable para la familia!”
Nuestro primer viaje con mi familia a Machupicchu fue increíble un lugar mágico e indescriptible imaginar que antepasados de origen americano hayan construido una majestuosa ciudad encima de una montaña, montaña que tan sólo verla es imposible imaginar tan difícil proeza. Gracias por haber organizado mi viaje y brindarme un servicio de calidad con un precio altamente competitivo y bueno. Recomiendo encarecidamente a todo aquel que quiera viajar a Machu Picchu y disfrutar de hermosos paisajes pintorescos de Cuzco contar con los servicios de ILETOURS ya que su personal es muy amable. Gracias Mark!
“Amazing Personalized Service”
Iletours made our trip to Peru an unforgettable experience. They helped us with a personalized itinerary that made the best use of our time there and led us to experiences we would never have found on our own. They made our travel worry free with all the logistics handled seamlessly. The guides were outstanding. We are so glad we chose this company. Worth every penny!
