Van Eeden & Duijnhouwer Testimonial - Gran Vilaya & Tambopata

We traveled to Peru in late August 2018. I had been there once before, about 20 years ago, focused on what is now known as the "gringo trail" in the South. This was my partner’s first trip to South America, so in addition to the South, wanted to also get off the beaten track up North.

Luckily, I found Miles and PeruNorth …. He has lots of information about Peru overall, and especially the North. We had a rough itinerary and Miles gave me several tips re: destinations, flights and treks.
