Fantastic Experience in Cusco, Sacred Valley & the Peruvian Amazon Jungle

  |   Cruise Extensions

A few months have passed me by and I have had chance to reflect on what was a fantastic experience in South America. This was largely down to what you and your team offer at Rainforest Cruises. The team at Rainforest Cruises was excellent in dealing with my bespoke needs as a traveller. I felt that everything was taken care of from a planning perspective but also that I was involved and informed with regard to the planning stages of my two week experience in Peru. 


Machu Picchu


My experience from Cusco onwards was expertly well thought out in terms of timing and rest days. My initial day in Cusco was sufficient to acclimatize to the altitude before I set off on a five day trek to Mt Salkantay, culminating in a life changing experience at Machu Picchu. The company that Rainforest Cruises operates with for this five day trek is professional, forward thinking and cost effective. On the night of my stay in Cusco I was met by a lovely local man who helped me to decide on the key equipment for the trip as well as reiterating the schedule for the five day trek. The tents used, the cooking staff, the food, the guide, the horses and the walking equipment were all of an excellent quality.




On a separate note, as part of my itinerary, I had four internal flights which were fantastic. They were very quick, the time of the flights were very agreeable and made this made the whole experience even more euphoric! A massive thank you to Leanne at Exito Travel [Rainforest Cruises' recommended flight provider] for her efficiency in dealing with my itinerary. It is worth mentioning that the flights remained very cheap despite the fact that they were booked by a travel company.

The second phase of my trip to the Peruvian Amazon jungle on one of the estuaries of the amazon river, which was truly amazing. Rainforest Cruises had ensured that I was staying in a luxury lodge which was emaculately clean, friendly and professionally run. The vast array of activities during the week made for an interesting and eclectic stay with a whole host of animals ticked off! I must say that the experience with the Shaman is one which will stay with me for life.


To summarize, none of this would have possible without the efforts of the fantastically well organized team at Rainforest Cruises.


Thank you all so so much.
