Unu Raymi Tour Operator & Lodges is the best. They planned our amazing trip to Peru, Edwin our guide, Jesus our driver. James managed our trip through airport accidents and transportation strikes, making sure we didn’t miss any of the main highlights of our trip. Truly amazing! I highly recommend it and would certainly go back on our next incredible journey.

An Unforgettable Peruvian Adventure with Unu Raymi Expeditions – dic. de 2023 • Pareja

Our trip to Peru with Unu Raymi Expeditions was incredible. Everything was so well-organized by the team. Peru blew us away with its breathtaking and diverse landscapes, and we saw way more than we ever expected.

There are too many excursions deserving of special mention, but a highlight was spending Christmas with a local family on Amantani on Lake Titicaca. It was a unique and heartwarming experience that we’ll always cherish. Machu Pichu, Rainbow Mountain, Humantay Lake etc., were all dreams come true, however, the team at Unu Raymi showed that there is so much more to see in Peru! Every day was an adventure.

Each day, a local tour guide would pick us up and show us around. They were all amazing and we learned so much from them and about the country and its rich culture. A special mention must be made of Herbert, our guide for Machu Picchu. His expertise and passion for the site made our visit there all the more enjoyable.

Behind the scenes the coordination was flawless. A huge thank you to James and Edwin for planning and organizing everything. They went above and beyond, especially considering my health issues before the trip and the fact that we were on our honeymoon! They made sure we got to see and do everything we wanted, and more.

The whole team at Unu Raymi Expeditions made sure everything ran smoothly, from start to finish. They were always on time and made sure we didn’t miss a thing. If you’re into high-energy, action-packed adventures, we’d highly recommend Unu Raymi Expeditions. They made our trip to Peru the trip of our lives, and we will be choosing their services when we go and see the rest of South America in the years to come!

Simon & Mimi (AUS) - South Perú Expedition

Mimi and I have just completed a one-month trip of a lifetime with Unu Raymi Expeditions. We are experienced independent travelers who, as active retirees, enjoy private, escorted touring that is customized to our interests and abilities. Originally planned for early 2020, the trip was severely disrupted and reorganized many times due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Potentially, these changes could have spelled the end of our wish to visit Peru and all that went with it. However, James Mackender and his team worked overtime to maintain and amend our plans and ensure the trip went ahead when clear to do so.

The result was well worth the wait. At every turn, James and his team planned, booked, confirmed, and followed up on all details resulting in a stress-free visit which we cannot fault. The quality of accommodation, guides, transport, drivers, and advice was just as we anticipated and such a result does not occur without professional input.

Mimi and I would highly recommend Unu Raymi Expeditions and James and his team without reservation. If we return to South America on another visit, James will be the first person we call.

Accommodation.

Great.

-The staff at all locations were engaged and reacted rapidly to any concern. We appreciated and enjoyed each hotel’s facilities, food and locations/access to local sights and amenities (food, shopping, walking areas).

-Although the accommodations in the Iquitos Doubletree were very nice, we must comment on the internal noise impacting guest rooms/suites overlooking the pool. We would strongly recommend a plaza-side room in preference to a pool-side room. The noise (loud disco/club music) on the poolside was unremitting from morning through evening and far greater than the traffic on the plaza side. Additionally, this hotel was the only one of our accommodations that did not provide daily drinking water. Our personal complaints initially made to staff were subsequently reinforced to management by James. These complaints were heard and we were satisfied with the resolution. Our concerns are the loud music and lack of water represent the hotel management’s standard operating procedure, and this practice will remain. We would have preferred a bottle of drinking water each instead of a cookie!

The Lima Hilton hotel staff, particularly at the front desk, dining room and executive lounge, deserve special commendation for exemplary customer service and friendliness. We greatly appreciated this.

Of the hotels, El Albergue in Ollantaytambo was the stand-out. We loved the setting, the spacious room, the friendly staff and truly enjoyed being on the train platform. The restaurant staff was very accommodating with our requests for ‘light’ dinners and the staff stayed late as we chatted with fellow travelers after dinner over another (!) bottle of wine. Memorable.

The Amazon cruise with Delfin 1 was off the scale. We were accommodated, educated, fed, watered, and pampered beyond belief; strongly recommended. We were also very pleased we booked on the smallest of Delphin’s ships. This made the onboard and outstanding expedition experiences personal and so enjoyable. Delphin’s staff are exceptional.

Transport.

Excellent. The standard of the vehicle was most suitable and the drivers were very professional and safe. Jesus was particularly good.

As an aside I would recommend the Hiram Bingham train in preference to the Belmond Andean Explorer. This is due to sleep being extremely difficult on the Andean Explorer on night one due to sub-standard trackwork and altitude on night two. The train, food, staff and accommodation were magnificent but if you cannot get a good night’s sleep it makes for a less than wonderful activity. Again, the Belmond staff were exceptional.

Food.

Excellent. We loved being introduced to the local fare, although we are not accustomed to big meals at lunchtime! All the restaurants were wonderful; we especially enjoyed the cooking lesson at the restaurant in Lima and the picnic at Ollantaytambo.

Locations.

Excellent. In our early planning process, we only personally chose Machu Picchu, Lake Titikaka and the Amazon. They were magnificent as expected, as were all the other sites recommended by Unu Raymi, especially in the Sacred Valley. All sites and experiences exceeded our expectations. We learned so much and since our return to Australia, we have referred to our books on Peru to review and seek additional information on our experiences.

We recommend visiting Colca Canyon as a 2-day trip. For us, it was too long a round-trip drive for a one-day experience (especially allowing for the altitude). But we loved seeing the condors soaring, and we would have not wanted to miss that.

Professionalism.

Excellent. Nothing needs to be added. We greatly appreciated James’ and Martha’s concern and willingness to help us retrieve a lost phone. Truly above and beyond the call of duty.

Communication.

Excellent. Before, during and after the trip communication was outstanding. During the trip James contacted us every day to confirm details and address any issues. We could not have asked for more.

Safety.

Excellent. Especially when it came to road transport. The drivers demonstrated the patience of Job, and they all kindly and consistently made our comfort, health and safety issues, especially in relation food and water, a priority. Our safety was clearly a concern of the guides during all of our activities.

Guides.

Excellent. All guides were well-chosen to manage visitors of our age. At no time did they attempt any activity before first confirming we were OK with the prospect. Additionally, at altitude and when climbing steps, the guides checked regularly on our comfort level. Their individual knowledge was wide-ranging, and we learnt so much more than anticipated due to the guides’ education and backgrounds and ability to put tours into a much-larger cultural and historic context. Martha, Herbert and Freddie were standouts. We commend Martha’s willingness to amend the itinerary on our final day. She and the driver literally made a u-turn and gave us a very special final experience at Pachacamac.

Finally, in addition to the history, culture and amazing sites, landscape, nature we experienced with the guides and drivers, we will long treasure the daily informal interactions we shared with the guides and drivers: Lots of laughter, family stories, and commonalities despite our supposed differences.

We also greatly appreciated the ‘down time’ built into the itinerary, especially around travel days.

Payment Process.

Needs Improvement. The problem may well have been due to international rules and Covid delays, but the process of payment requires addressing. In these days of global credit, it should not be difficult to pay/transfer funds.

Unu Raymi tours helped me organize a three-week vacation in Peru. This allowed me to visit many of the country’s most important sites but with the flexibility to add some additional places to my itinerary. The planning was excellent in that all tours, transfers and hotel arrangements were very smooth and the various contacts were very helpful, considerate and professional. Although getting around Peru and seeing all the fabulous sites made for a quick vacation with lots of traveling, it was worth it as there is so much to see. The standards of the hotel, food and tour seemed to be very good value for money, within the budget, and I received plenty of extra guidance in planning my own aspects of the trip and support when an unexpected medical issue arose.

The website has interesting information and guidance that helped me plan accordingly; I think this could develop, although James was very helpful in helping me plan the vacation, including travel and packing considerations. Overall, it was a memorable few weeks for me.
