Nina Fogelman and Ancient Summit staff at Ancient Summit were beyond exceptional.  They made our Peruvian experience extraordinary in every aspect and their attention to detail surpassed all of our expectations.  Their main concern was to provide us with a wonderful, safe and problem-free experience while in Peru and they succeeded. The guides were top notch, knowledgeable, approachable, fun, kind, and friendly with a great sense of humor.  Most of all they were passionate about Peru and really brought Incan history to life. My sons, aged 18 and 23, enjoyed their first exposure to South America.  We were all physically challenged by the Inca trail, but it was well worth it as we were exposed close up to the beauty of the Andes and Machu Picchu.  There were so many highlights from our trip — our day of horseback riding in the Andes, the wonderful hikes to and around Machu Pichu, all the wonderful sights of Cusco and the Sacred Valley, and being treated like royalty at a small authentic Peruvian village.  At the village we learned from the “mamitas” about the ancient process used for creating intricately designed and colored textiles.


I can’t say enough about the level of professionalism and high standards of Ancient Summit. The vehicles they provided were comfortable and the drivers were punctual and always willing to make any stop for pictures. The hotels were gorgeous and welcoming and the food was fantastic wherever we went. Ancient Summit thought of everything! It was a vacation beyond memorable and Ancient Summit is an agency that I would highly recommend to anyone who is seeking a trip of a lifetime. Peru is a magical land with so much to see and we only wish we could have had the time to visit the rainforest too.  Next time.  Gracias Nina and the fabulous Ancient Summit staff!
