Client Testimonials:


Jhon was amazing and definitely made the trip as successful as it was! Noelle K., Ridgewood, NJ
Inca Trail Private Journey Deluxe Option
Jhon was able to lecture authoritatively on Incan/Peruvian/South American history, archaeology, botany, colonization, and cultural anthropology. Which, by itself, might make me want to push him off a convenient precipice (of which we saw several) if he weren't such a considerate, supportive, and competent guide! Drew C., Albany, NY
