Here is a relatively independent website that lreviews tour operators in Peru. You may be able to find something on there. If you have the time, it is straightforward to organise a trip yourself and save quite a bit of cash.

Right?

Never heard of Escapes Unlimited.

There are a lot of individuals holding themselves out to be travel agencies. They have a web presence only. Will buy your bus tickets, flights and hotels, and hire out to local guides who may or may not show up.

Right! Not sure where my brains are right now. Must be the altitude or the jet lag.

Thanks. I did find some news articles and blogs so it seems they are legit. I will let you know after Novemeber. Thanks for the Andeantravelweb.com site. There was a lot of great info on there.

Hi Angelinfla, We used Escapes Unlimited for our trip to Bali last November. They were very efficient and the price was excellent. The local guide was really good and the included extra trips were terrific. I would recommend them and use them again for sure.

Hi Joanw . Thank you for your time. Yes I was a little sceptical when they said they would only accept a check or American Express. So just not knowing someone except a google search on the internet I was a little weary. I am using Roe at escapes unlimited in Santa Ana California. Is that who you used? I know I am seeing a lot of escapes unlimited locations on the net I don't know if they are a chain or just many travel agencies have named themselves the same name
