We first learned about Ancient Summit from our young cousin who had a personalized trip designed for her and her boyfriend. They loved their experience so we called Nina to discuss our upcoming trip. What we think separates Nina from the rest of the pack is that she listens to what you want to do, see, enjoy and experience. For example, when we expressed a long-standing interest in music, she arranged for us to visit a unique museum in Cusco showcasing old and new Andean and Amazonian instruments — complete with a demonstration. We told her about our interest in ethnic cuisines so she also set up a private cooking demonstration.. .fun and delicious! And we had a private lunch with one of her dear friends. We may not have spoken the same language, but we communicate easily and enjoyed every moment.

We found the quality of the guides and drivers to be outstanding. Aside from their extraordinary knowledge, our guides, in particular, were ready to follow our lead in terms of pacing our day. If we needed more “down” time, they worked that in expertly. They were professional in every sense of the word.

The vans we traveled in were first rate. We were greeted with fresh bottles of water each morning and afternoon and we spent our days in air-conditioned style.

Nina is very responsive – and responsible – to her clients. We’d travel with her again most definitely.
