“Quality Tour with Quality Staff”
My daughter and I took the five day Salkanty Trek to Machu Picchu with Cusi Travel in September of 2012. It was one of a number of treks we took on our three month Peru, Bolivia and Argentina holiday. Although the tour put us over our daily personal budget of $65 and cost more than many other tours being offered by the dozens, possibly hundreds of agencies offering treks to Machu Picchu,the UNESCO heritage site, Jose the owner of Cusi Tours and our guide, is in a class of his own.
Jose had been recommended to us by a friend of a friend and after reading his responses to our emails, learning that he was Peruvian, that he was the owner and that he was to be our guide, we decided to choose him and his company over all the others.
Not to repeat what has already been written about Jose Cusi elsewhere, (please refer to comments on the Cusi Travel web-site which my daughter and I completely agree with), I can only add that Jose has working for him probably the best camp cook in all Peru. He actually has trained as a chef and like Jose, takes tremendous pride in his work. Jose himself we think personally guides just so he can enjoy the food and cooking being provided on the treks.
Because I am a budget-type traveler and outdoor enthusiast, I am not accustomed to the quality service and attentiveness that was being offered but for those discerning tourists who are the type that want and are able to do multi-day hikes and have come to expect the best, Cusi Travel will meet your expectations.
