Thank you so much Carlos and Mauro- You made our Inca Trail trip so special. Your good humour, passion and knowledge was more than we could have asked for. SAS should be proud to have such great staff. Also a MASSIVE thanks to the portors and chefs-what amazing guys!
We hope to come back to Peru one day, we will be sure to use SAS again.
MUCHOS GRACIAS AMIGOS. Gemma and Tristan.

We took two trips with SAS in May 2009 to celebrate our birthdays. The first was to Tambo Jungle Lodge, everything about this tour exceeded expectations, the food, accomodation and best of all our guide Jackson, with his immense knowledge and fantastic English he really went out of his way to spot wildlife for us. We have travelled in many countries and took many tours and this guide is worth his weight in gold, a real credit to SAS. The second was the 4 day Inca Trail, again food and accomodation were excellent and the guide Saul very knowledgeable. Well done SAS for having 1st class guides.read more

Our Inca Trail trip on May 12-15 was awesome! You should be very proud of your staff -- from booking, check in, transportation, food, trail -- everything worked seamlessly.
Our trail guide, Saul Palma, was excellent. He is articulate, informative, passionate about the history, and has a great sense of humor. The Inca ruins -- all of them, not just Machu Picchu -- are beautiful and rich in history, and Saul was incredible at explaining things. Please let him know how much we enjoyed his company and friendship. We e-mailed him but didn't receive a response so we're not sure he got it.
The food was superb, all the people so nice. Peru is a wonderful country, and we will highly recommend SAS Travel Peru to our friends. Hotel Marqueses was also a great place to stay while in Cusco.
Thank you very much for making this our most memorable trip ever.

Dear SAS Travel,
We just completed the 5 day/4 night trek to Choquequirao. Our guide was Roberto and he did a fantastic job. The trek was quite challenging and Roberto was incredibly patient as we navigated the steep canyon to reach the ruins. Moreover, he provided us with wonderful information about history, culture, and politics from beginning to end. We were entertained, enthralled, and enriched by the experience.
We also have to mention the wonderful cooks (Alberto and Ricardo), who never failed to amaze us with their incredible culinary skills in such remote places. They tirelessly supported us by setting up camp, feeding us, and assisting us during difficult parts of the climb. Thanks also to the horsemen (Acquino and Johann) who were also tireless. They were altogether a most impressive group, one that represented SAS travel very well.
Thanks for one of the most amazing experiences of our lives. We will never forget those five life-changing days in the Andes.

Many thanks again to your company for our tours while in Peru last month. A special thanks to Aldo, our guide, on the Salkantay Trek 2-8 May.
He did a wonderful job and we so enjoyed our experience on the trek.
We also did the 3 day tour of Lake Titicaca and had a great experience staying with the local family on Amantani Island. Is there any way we could get the address for our host family there? We stayed with the town mayor/chief and his wife, Aurelia. I'm sorry that we don't have any more information about them.
Muchas, muchas gracias!

Dear SAS Peru >
Just a short note to let you know how wonderful our inca trail trip was. We were the May 27 group that left the night before. Although the begining was somewhat chaotic due to the protests and strike, the trip was much better than expected thanks to the great leadership of our guide Jose and his assistant Hugo. Their knowledge, enthusiasm and style was perfect. The porters were also very helpful, flexible and professional. I will recommend SAS without reservation to our friends who plan to follow in our adventurous footsteps.
Congratulations on a job well done.

Hello: I'm a peruvian/canadian citizen and used SAS travel for my honeymoon in January 2008. My husband and I had a fabulous time and were very impressed with the quality of service as it meets North American standards. The guide Martin was very fluid in english, punctual, friendly and knowledgeable. The buses were all new Mercedes. I already recommended SAS travel to a couple of friends from Japan and Canada that are visiting Peru; and now I'm linking your site to my wedding website!..... keep it up guys, strive for excellence!....read more

Everyone at SAS Travel
Thank you so much for making my Inca Trail experience SO WONDERFUL -
I had a really great time.
Our guide Saul was hallarious, and kept everyone in really great spirits,
even on the difficult days. People in other groups were staring at us,
wondering where we found the energy to sing "in the Jungle" on the way up to
Dead Woman's Pass, but it took our minds off the difficult climb ahead, and
this was actually my favourite of all the days!! Please pass my thanks on
to Saul and Hugo, who kept me company at the back of the group.
Everyone I dealt with at SAS was just great - from my initial enquiries, to
the guides, the cook and the staff at Aguas Callientes. It was a lovely
treat arriving at the hostal at Aguas Callientes - I was expecting shared
dorms, but the private room with private bathroom were among the nicest
rooms I've stayed in since I arrived on my budget holiday to South America.
I am really glad I spent the extra $40 or so to go with a trully exceptional
company. I have already recommended SAS to other travellers and hope they
will do the same when they come down the mountain.

Dear SAS Travel
I just wanted to tell you what a terrific group of porters and guides we had on our trip leaving Cusco on Wednesday March 4 and arriving in Machu Picchu on Saturday March 7, led by your terrific guide Hilbert. Valentino was a fabulous cook; Hilbert and the coordinator really made sure we were all well cared for. And I especially want to commend Justino who helped me, the slowest of the group, to complete the trek and really enjoy every part of it, in spite of my relative lack of fitness, having to do some of my hiking in the dark because I was slower than the group. Justino was wonderfully knowledgeable about Inca and South American history, about the birds and the flowers and terrain, and always found something to entertain me as I was trying to gather my strength to make the next surge uphill. He taught me how to walk efficiently and conserve energy – and nothing was as rewarding as making it to camp each night with his help. I absolutely encourage you to promote him to a lead guide – he is knowledgeable, thoughtful, calm and very easy to understand in English. My experience was truly made special by Justino.
I ve seen other groups but SAS is a first class and superior service.
Thanks for a fabulous trip.

The 4 day Lares trek has been the experience of a lifetime. Isaac has been an absolutely fantastic guide in every way. His enthusiasm and passion for the trek really made the experience for me. I loved his guided tour of Machupicchu and feel like I have a much beter understanding of Peruvian history.The porters and chefs were a fantastic team. It was a real pleasure to take part in the trek.
Thank you so much SAS !!!

Just completed a 4 day Inca trail and celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. SAS did a wonderful job organizing and planning our trip, campsites and food which was excellent and wholesome. Reuben was an outstanding guide who was very very enthusiatic and showed us everything we could soak up on this incredible Journey to Inca land. Hugo was equally brilliant always compassionate and lending us a hand on that most difficult "women's pass' and the whole group and my family had a most enjoyable time that we will cherish for the rest of our life. way to go SAS and all your wonderful Staff.
