UK travel company to Peru - MP, Cusco etc

We have just started researching a trip to Peru and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good UK travel company to help us?

We have around 14-16 days, would like to do some trekking (moderate), visit MP etc. Does anyone have a suggested itinery/recommendations?

Also, when is the best time to go?

Suggest you look at Peruvian companies instead.

Any UK company will be outsourcing to a Peruvian one.

Cut out the middleman, and reserve directly with a local company, so you know exactly what you will get & what quality of service. Saves money, too.

There are many local Peruvian companies highly recommended on this forum, including Pachamama Explorers, Llama Path, Q'ente, etc. They all have guides with excellent English language skills.

I would follow Redheads suggestions.

You can also contact Aracari, a local company with a UK office.

We have recently returned from a trip to Peru, including the 4 day hike.

We used Llama travel in the UK and was very pleased with the hotels, transport and guides. We are looking at using them again but this time to the Galapagos.

Hi

We have just returned from Peru and booked a jungle trip with Peru Best Tours. The travel advisor, Mike, is English and we found him very helpful
