People who stayed in this apartment, have only the best opinions about it.

We toured Peru by car for 2 weeks and were completely enthusiastic about the entire trip. Nora and Mario responded to all our wishes and put together a perfect and individual trip for us: the hotels were great, the excursions were great, the organization was perfect! We didn't have to worry about anything - everything was as described

Andean Origins ist eine Reiseagentur, welche als eine von wenigen Fly-and-Drive anbietet. Wir haben uns für eine zweiwöchige RdReise durch Südperu entschieden. Schon während der Reiseplanung und -vorbereitung waren wir von der Aufmerksamkeit und Professionalität überzeugt. Das Vorschläge konnten von uns abgeändert werden und wurden perfekt aufgenommen bzw. integriert. Von der Ankunft am Flughafen in Lima, über die Übergabe des KFZ, bis hin zur Deponierung von Eintrittskarten in den Hotels war alles durchdacht und für uns vorbereitet. Auch während eines "incidents" vor Ort, war Andean Origins erreichbar und hat sich um uns gekümmert. Sehr begeistert waren wir auch von den ausgewählten Hotels (Standard, Location, Sauberkeit,...). Andean Origins bleibt unser Ansprechpartner für die nächste Reise und ist absolut empfehlenswert. Zusammengefasst: es war wunderbar. Danke für alles.
We have booked a three-week round trip with a car as a self-driver. All the hotels were excellently chosen the journey very well thought out. We received an exact map (using an app) and were able to navigate very well. Even before a road blockade (strike) we were informed and were able to avoid a traffic jam. The selected guides were exceptionally qualified and quickly responded to all special requests. The excursion to Rainbow Mountain suggested as an alternative was also sensational and very well described. We would book here again and again. Many thanks for everything
