What Our Visitors Say

Amazing overall experience, one that will always be with us. Our guide Roger was awesome, a lot of knowledge and took wonderful care of us on the trail! We appreciated everything about him and the support team. First Step Expeditions gave us excellent customer service starting months prior to the trip and stayed consistent!!! I highly recommend them and our rock star guide Roger!


Our group of three and a fantastic time doing the Sacred Valley, Lares Trek, and Machu Picchu with first step expeditions. From initial contact to booking they were very easy to communicate with, not pushy, and able to accommodate some special requests…overall the trip was a once in a lifetime experience. I highly recommend First Step Expeditions to anyone lookingto visit Peru. We will definitely be using them again if return to Peru!
