It is very important to me that you know how pleased and happy we were with everything [Manu], but especially with our excellent guide. He was a very competent, likeable and flexible leader for the whole group (with us there were four South African Ladies).

My son and I just returned from Peru, and I want to tell you how much we enjoyed the trips with Manu Expeditions. Our guide Catarina was amazing. She was an excellent guide. The trips were very well organized. I would certainly book with Manu Expeditions again.

Truly an amazing experience. Carlo's local knowledge, medical knowledge, general good humour and encouragement got us through a challenge which I will never forget. The rest of the team were excellent also, highly organized and very efficient.
