Group services versus Private services

This is a question we must all ask ourselves before planning a trip. The answer depends a lot on the age, the particular interests of each person but above all on the economy of each passenger. Being in a group of 15/20 people with different interests will probably mean that some of them will want to make shopping without stopping on a souvenir market while others with 10 minutes will have enough, and although there is a schedule for each activity there always exist the person who arrives some minutes late running, causing a loss of your precious vacation time, at the end of the day. Besides, the local official guide of the group will guide in both, English/Spanish languages, will has a strict stipulated itinerary and will be available for the 15/20 people at the same time. The main advantage of this service is the affordable price.

On the other side, with the private services you will have a very accommodate driver who will make the necessary stops where you indicate and for the time you will considerer convenient in each place and a local official guide who will guide in your own language (when possible, if not just in one language, most of the times English) and who will perfectly know your particular interests to make of your trip a very personal experience, without losing time in places that are not of your interest. The main advantage of a private tour is that you use your vacation time more efficiently, learn more about the country and have all the attention of your guide, no doubt a “must” for the demanding client. If you have 5 or more people in the group, we recommend you take the private services as the price gets very close to that of the group services.

We urge you to get in touch with us so we can design your trip to Peru together, probably combining some excursions in private and some in group services. Our team of experienced voyagers knows what it means to plan a trip of a lifetime as well as the investment that implies, therefore, we want everything to go perfect.
