GUESS WHY VSA HAS RATED 5 STARS ?

  •   I absolutely loved out time in Peru and Hilton and Noah really made our stay unforgettable. This is not your typical agency that just wants to squeeze money out of you and show you the generic sites for a premium. I consider VSA your local insider friends that will make sure you see all the hidden spots and have an amazing time!! If there is anything you are thinking of doing, just ask them, they will figure out a way to make it happen with your budget :)100% recommended!

  •   I spent an incredible week in Cuzco, peru. The agency planned a perfect agenda for me where we were able to visit a lot of the sites, they were also very attentive to my requests and tailor made my agenda there to fit my needs. Would definitely use them in any of my upcoming South America trips �

  •   I went on the 14 day tour in Peru and it was definitely one of the highlights of my whole trip! It's incredible how many stunning different landscapes and beautiful cities you see in such a short amount of time. Everything was perfectly organised and the tour guide Hilton is amazing. He knows every place you go to really well so you always eat in the best places and stay in the nicest hotels/hostels. Also Noah was with us, another tour guide who will take over this trip soon. He is an awesome person and a great photographer like Hilton. I'm sure the tours with him in the future will be just as great and special because he was born in Peru so he will show you his home. We had a lot of fun and were a really small group which made it even more special. I completely recommend Visit South America to anyone who is planning a trip to this beautiful part of the world. You will have the time of your life! Thanks so much for the amazing trip, see you in Bolivia!

  •   I did the Peru on a Shoestring trip a few weeks ago, it was my first time really traveling on my own, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The VSA crew was super friendly and accomadating, Sofia was awesome, she helped me with any questions and concerns that I had, and she was always super quick to respond. Once I landed Hilton and Noah were great, from city to city, they took the hassle out of everything, they knew the best places to eat, drink, and have fun. When it came to setting up any tours, they took the lead on that and made the whole trip as stress free as possible! Throughout the whole trip, I met some incredible people and made some new friends. I would recommend traveling with Visit South America to any one looking for adventure through South America. They're awesome!

  •   I did a week-long customized tour of Cusco and Lima and the VSA team has been very organized and flexible throughout my tour. Sofia was very accommodating from the very start when I first inquired through email and she provided me with guidance and tips on how to do my tour since I only had a few days. I didn't bother inquiring to other tour groups because I felt Sofia's sincerity when I kept on changing my itinerary and asked too many questions. Hilton was also very hands on during my trip making sure I was taken cared of well and did last minute arrangement when I again changed my mind. :))) They went the extra mile when they arranged a mini tour for me in Lima when it wasn't part of the original itinerary. Jeff brought me to these local artsy places where I got to see vibrant city life of Lima.What I liked the best is how everything was personalized and genuine. Looking forward to my next trip with VSA! Will definitely be back! :)

  •   The most incredible service we could have ever dreamed of! We used Visit SoAm for information about our trip to Peru in particular, Machu Picchu and booked a Rainbow Mountain excursion with them - it was AMAZING. Our guide, Nilo ensured we were comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our day trip. Sofia helped us plan our trip to Peru from start to finish and was immensely helpful. I can't recommend this company enough!!!

  •   It has always been my dream to travel to Peru and Bolivia and with the help of VSA I had the trip of a lifetime. My Brother and I did a 25 day tour that was expertly arranged and simply exceeded my expectations. From sandboarding in the desert, trekking mountains, the breathtaking scenery and amazing people we met along the way this trip was just sensational. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide, Hilton was simply the best. He did everything to accommodate anything we wanted to experience and see, was always translating, helping to barter and taking amazing photos for us, and he knew all the best spots to eat and drink. It was like we hired a friend who took such excellent care of us and made sure everything was hassle free so we could just enjoy and have fun. I would highly recommend VSA and I can’t thank Hilton and the team enough. Can’t wait to travel with you again!
