Client Testimonials


Jhon's knowledge of and love for the Inca culture came through time and time again, as he described the sites and also wove his personal insights into the narrative. He and his crew of porters attended to every detail, including a bottle of Champagne and New Years hats to celebrate the New Year at the remarkable campsite at Phuyupatamarka. I don't think there is a more beautiful place to celebrate the coming of the New Year!

Inca Trail Private Journey
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!
