I was very satisfied with the services provided by Jim and his company. I visited Peru in the beginning of July 2021. The local tour guides and driver were all excellent, and lodging was superior. I experienced altitude issues but everyone was very patient and understanding.

Jim Turner was amazing. Everything that he promised, was delivered. Great communication before and during the trip. All tour guides were professional, always on time and very accommodating. I would highly recommend Jim Turner for any future trips.

My husband, sister, a friend, and I decided to visit Peru and complete the Inca Trail trek to Machu Pichu. A friend of a friend had used Amazing Peru several years back and recommended the company to us. I wish I had seen the negative TripAdvsior reviews before I booked, as that would have saved me a lot of money and stress. So please heed these warnings and do NOT book with this company. My experience: We booked the 4-day trek back in January for an August trip. This made sense as the permits for the trek sell out quickly and we wanted to be assured a spot. We paid in full and never got a receipt or any acknowledgment of payment. I didn’t think much of that, as sometimes international companies aren’t as good with communication and just chalked it up to an oversight. As the trip approached, my friend who organized this started contacting the operator, David, for more information about the trip. He was really slow to respond and at one point we thought he ghosted us, only to finally hear from him weeks later. But days before we were set to leave, we still didn’t have basic information about when were going to be picked up or any itinerary. We called the company’s phone lines which had been disconnected. We traveled to Peru knowing we had likely gotten scammed but determined to make it to Machu Pichu anyway. We finally got an email from David telling us the guide would meet us in our hotel the night before the trek for a briefing. The guide showed up and presented us with a completely different tour than we had paid for- the one that did require the costly permits and was NOT the Inca Trail. I guess this is their scam strategy- have customers pay for costly tours and then try to get them to do something completely different thats a lot cheaper for the tour operators. We declined this alternate tour and found our own way to Machu, but we weren’t able to trek there like we planned, which was a real disappointment. I emailed David asking for a full refund and he said there was a “mix up” on the booking form which is why we were presented with a totally different tour. But no explanation for the lack of communication or disconnected numbers. I filed a fraud claim with my credit card company and got reimbursed, but I ended up spending way more $ than planned given we had to quickly find accommodations and alternate travel plans to Machu. I think Amazing Peru was once a legitimate company but that is clearly no longer the case. Not sure if it’s a full scam scheme now or if the company recently fell apart, but either way do not book with them.

Happy for you to contact me if you wish. My wife worked with his tour group online for 9+ months organising part of our South American holiday including Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Iquitos etc: Over $10,000us was paid in advance. After a week in Chile we landed at Lima airport expecting to see a sign with our name on it at Arrivals. When we couldn’t find anyone, we checked our email and while we were in the air they had cancelled our trip and to this point (2 weeks later) have refused to refund us. Looks like we’ve been conned but have our people looking into it.

Dear Aaron000026, We had previously replied to your wife’s post 336kylieg below and once again must inform you that unforeseen external events can happen that are out of our control, as was the case with the major issues at London Gatwick airport which closed the airport for several days due to the presence of drones operating near the airport. This was widely circulated worldwide news. As you are no doubt aware, we are currently coordinating efforts with your wife regarding an insurance claim. If you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact your travel advisor directly. Thank you
