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.
