Why choose Exploor Peru?

Why choose Exploor Peru?

Amazing picture, isn’t it? You want this and we want you to have the time of your life there, too.

That’s our main goal: to show you the best of Peru in your own terms, i.e. your set time, your defined budget and your preferred travel style.

But first things first. Before telling you what sets us apart, let’s get the “travel agency thing“ out of the way. We’ll keep it short, we promise.


To Travel Agency Or Not To Travel Agency?

Travel through Peru on your own or splurge on a travel agency? Here’s the latest advice about picking the right choice for you.

Coke or Pepsi? Cat or dog? Easy, right? To travel agency or not to travel agency? That is the question. The definitive answer is partly taste, partly budget and partly real-world considerations. However, when considering all the trade-offs carefully, we think going with a travel agency is the right call. Let us explain.


3 Widely Believed But False Claims

1. “Going with a travel agency is way more expensive than traveling on your own.”

In fact, going with a travel agency can be cheaper at times if you take into consideration all the time saved and the hassle-free experience. As a one-stop shop, we can help you customize your trip up to the last detail at the right price.

Do not take our word and check out our price benchmark compared to other agencies.

2. “I don’t need an agency. I can Google my way out or ask around.”

Not quite so. As insiders and with lots of experience from previous travelers, travel agencies have access to knowledge nowhere to be found online because that’s our main job. Granted, these days the Internet is there to cut off the middle man but that’s when they don’t bring any value to the table.

Aside from the usual suspects when planning a trip -limited time, the language barrier and the unexpected unknowns- travel agencies can be a real asset when it comes to which is the right trip for you.

Say you want book the ideal hotel in the Sacred Valley to celebrate your anniversary. Well, we haven’t just researched the best hotels online, but we’ve also been there ourselves, so we know from first hand experience which one is the perfect one for you.

3. “Travel agencies force you to buy all services (tours, accommodation, etc.) at the same price range all bundled in a package.”

95% of the time that’s true, but not with us. At Exploor Peru, we believe in total flexibility. No matter how you want to travel, it’s always your call. When we started the company, we were very aware of this issue and that’s why we created different product categories targeted at different travelers’ needs from the get go.

Looking for 100% peace of mind with even the last detail ironed out? Check out our custom tour survey and we’ll help you create the perfect itinerary. How about seeing the Best of Peru in 6, 7.. up to 10 days and booking accommodation on your own? Then our Best of Peru packages are the ones for you.

Flash trip with limited time and want to see Machu Picchu and the Best of Cusco and surroundings? Say no more, our Machu Picchu and the Best of Cusco tours are what you need.

To sum it up, we fully understand that different travelers have different preferences when it comes to planning their trip and we totally embrace it. So, whatever your preference, we got you covered.

Alright, I’m almost there…but why choose us?

Glad you asked. Long story short: there are 3 main reasons…

    My 10-day tour with Exploor Peru was nothing short of extraordinary! From the vibrant streets of Lima to the ancient wonders of Cusco and the serene beauty of Lake Titicaca, every moment was a revelation.

    The itinerary was meticulously planned, ensuring we explored each destination at a comfortable pace. Our guides Walter, Junior, Peter and Cesar were not only knowledgeable but also passionate about sharing the rich history and culture of Peru. Their insights added depth to every experience, making it all the more memorable.

    What truly stood out was the commitment to avoiding crowds, allowing us to appreciate the authenticity of each place. This made our journey really unique!

    Lake Titicaca was a highlight, where we enjoyed serene boat rides, visited the Uros Floating Islands, and immersed ourselves in the local culture. The views were simply spectacular!

    Overall, our tour with Exploor Peru tour was incredible. I returned home with a deep appreciation for Peru’s diversity and a treasure trove of unforgettable memories. I can’t recommend this tour enough to fellow adventurers seeking a truly immersive Peruvian experience. Thank you again

    I felt we were ripped off. There was confusion with our reservations, and we were double-booked. To avoid Viator fees, Exploor insisted we send money via Paypal which we did. When we had to cancel, the company would only refund the cost of lunches that day. But the company never did. And the company should have refunded at least half but kept all our money.

      Dear Ron, We sincerely apologize for the negative experience you had.

      We understand your disappointment and would like to address your concerns. After thoroughly investigating your order details and speaking with the guide who conducted your tour, we discovered that you had made bookings with both our travel agency and another company. On the day of the tour, our guide and driver were eagerly awaiting your arrival in front of your hotel to begin the excursion. However, you made the decision to proceed with the other company instead.

      Regrettably, since our guide and driver had already been scheduled and committed for the day, we are unable to refund the payment allocated for their services. Nevertheless, we acknowledge that you did not partake in the included lunch, and we are more than willing to provide a refund for that portion of the package.

      If you would like additional clarification or have any further concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us directly. We wish you the very best in your future travels.

      Warm regards, Your Exploor Peru Team
