My husband and I recently returned from a 7 day trip to Peru. I can honestly say that it was the best trip I have been on and that is in complete credit to Jacada.First, the planning process was so enjoyable. Lily, my travel agent put together a great itinerary that was personalized based on exactly what worked for us. Closer to the time of our trip we were assigned a travel concierge, Berni, who worked so hard to make sure every small detail from restaurant recommendations, spa appointments, and small tours were perfect. While on our trip the planning was executed perfectly. The transfers were seamless, the hotels were top notch, and each activity was booked ahead of time without hiccupsWhen we arrived in Peru we were treated like royalty from the second the wheels touched the ground. Our guides helped us with everything from checking into our hotels, guiding us through the airports, helping us pick out the best dishes on the restaurant menus, and even recommending extra activities along the way that weren't on our original itinerary.A few examples: In Lima - our first night we stayed at the airport hotel as we were scheduled to fly out to Cusco the following morning. Our guide picked us up from the airport just to walk us across the street to help us check into our hotel. The following morning we were running a few minutes behind. He sat with us while we finished breakfast and had a great conversation. What could have been stressful in a different scenario turned out to be a lovely morning. Nilo - our guide in Cusco and Machu Picchu was one of the most special people I have ever met. He was so kind and considerate. His goal was to make sure that we enjoyed our vacation as much as possible. Upon arrival in Cusco, he recommended a stroll through the market and helped us pick out fresh and local fruit to try. When I told him I wanted a poncho he made a stop at a local shop where we learned about how the authentic alpaca ponchos are made. He reminded us to barter to be sure we paid a fair price. He was already prepared with tickets for us to visit Moray and Maras (two locations I really wanted to see, but didn't ask to have them added to the itinerary because I didn't think there would be time). He was also our guide on our Incan Trail hike to Machu Picchu. He made sure to point out the best locations for photos. . He was so smart. I felt like we were learning the entire time we were with him. He was also beyond prepared. He carried lunch for us that was catered from a delicious restaurant in Cusco. He carried extra water, sunscreen, and bug spray. At one point we started having muscle cramps and he was prepared with electrolytes and fashioned walking sticks out of bamboo. I was also very impressed because he shared that he went home and did research on how best to avoid cramps so he can make recommendations for future hikers. We were supposed to hike Mt. Machu Picchu, but we were so tired we wanted to sleep-in instead. Without a second hesitation he reorganized our itinerary for the following day so we could enjoy a restful morning in our hotel. He was nothing short of amazing!! We also really loved Marisol, who was one of the kindest women I have met. We spent the day with her while on a food tour. She gave us tips and tricks on Peruvian cuisine. She even recommended a cold brew coffee with pineapple, which is now a new favorite treat of mine!! There are some people that you just feel a connection to and I feel truly blessed to have met her. We even exchanged email addresses to keep in touch.I could think of 1,000 other reasons why this trip was amazing. But the bottom line is that I will not travel outside of the country again without the assistance of Jacada.Thank you so much
