My wife and I just returned from almost a month in South America. We generally self direct but decided to use a personal guide for our 8 days in Peru. We found Ancient Summit Enterprise, Inc. on this forum, www.ancientsummit.com, and had a wonderful time in Lima, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Ancient Summit is run by Nina Fogelman from her offices in FL with great support from her family and staff in Peru. (561-248-5120).
We wanted to be able to stop whenever we saw a photo op and we wanted to meet local people as much as possible. She arranged everything we asked for and our personal guide and driver ensured that our every wish was fulfilled.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Nina for her attention to detail and personal approach to planning and executing the tour that you want. She happened to be in Cusco on our first day and accompanied us to the Sacred Valley for a special luncheon and tour of the area. She is truly dedicated to ensuring that her clients are well cared for. You can’t go wrong.
