Cheap Peru Tours - View Peru Travel Company

Hello,I'm planning a trip to Peru in August and came across a travel company called Cheap Peru Tours. They quoted me a reasonable price for the selected tour but I want to do my due diligence on as much info as possible before I close the deal. Cheap Peru Tours is said to affiliated with View Peru $ Signatures.I've been shopping around and most of the Peru based tour companies I've come across feel shady.

My questions for Cheap Peru Tours:
  • Has anyone traveled using Cheap Peru Tours? If so, what is your feedback.
  • Are they a legit reputable organization that can be trusted?
  • Were there any issues with during your travels?
Any information you can provide would be very helpful.

Thank you,
~Asia

Nope, no need to use a tour agency if you don't want to unless hiking the Inca Trail, when a guide is mandatory.

Never heard of them and, like mlgb, I dont think there is any need for a tour, a travel agency or tour operator will add little but cost.

Peru has a very well developed tourism infrastructure. It is easy to arrange transport around the country, hotels can be sourced on booking.com etc. If you need or want a guide at any specific location, then it is easy to arrange either directly or though your accomodation.

This site is decent source for tour operators Andean Travel Web Guide to Peru

Hello Asia,

I would be careful with the tour company Cheap Peru Tours. I checked the website and it looks in many points similar with other so-called former travel agencies that exist for a short time. I met some guys there some years ago who are really good in SEO, but they do not work like a travel agency. I do not want to generalize it but I would always check if there is an address or some faces that you can contact.

It's better to just ignore them to do not be disappointed afterwards.

Please have a look for agencies like LlamaPath.com, VivaPeru Tours.com, AlpacaExpeditions.com.

These companies and many other ones are really well recognized in Peru and there are directions and persons behind the websites.
Otherwise, those agencies are also licensed to offer Inca Trail Tours (in case that you want to do Trekking to Machu Picchu) and that's always an important indication for a trustful operator.

As mentioned before, Andean Travel Web Guide to Peru is also a reliable source.

Hope that helps you bit and have a lot of fun in Peru.
