WHAT OUR PASSENGERS SAY

Love travelling with Dragoman. Only company I have travelled with since 2002. Enjoyed most the Inca trail.
Laurence R
Generally speaking the trip was great. The leaders were fantastic, both in organization, creating a safe and fun space, and helping with any issues that occured during the trip. The type of travelling is challenging, and very fast paced in terms of movement, but very very rewarding. I would, and will, recommend dragoman to anyone interested in travelling.
Malene N
Great job by the Dragoman leaders on our trip.
Gary H
My first experience. I was not in the least disappointed. It was great!Certainly, Machu Picchu was fantastic. I enjoyed the overland travel in the Dragoman vehicle. It was an up-close look at the countryside and at the people.
Frank B
Excellent group leaders, well organised, good mix of freedom and group activities, good variety of activities. Would recommend Dragoman, and consider and another trip with them.
Simon H
Good tour, back up plan worked when I had to be taken off the trek.
George B
Well arranged, truck well maintained and equipped and professional team to guide us through our own adventure

All the Inca Trail guys were first class, but Alfredo the cook was amazing.

Smithy and Jamil on the Community Trek were excellent. They gave us so much information, always had time for us and were so engaging that they really made the Community Inka Trek extra special and one of the highlights of the tour.

Jonathan on the Community trek was excellent. He explained what was involved in the trek for the day, the difficulty and terrain and the time it will take us. His tour through Machu Picchu was excellent with wonderful knowledge about the site.

Once again the rangers and cooking staff from the Inca Trail exceed our expectations.

It was a wonderful experience for both myself and my wife. We caught up with our daughter and boyfriend in Cusco who also came on the trek.

Most of the local guides were good. In particular Jonathan who was our guide for the Community Trek, he was fantastic.
Natasha R
Local guides performances were perfect.

The truck was fantastic. For the first part Darren was looking after it, then we had Sinead who was awesome too. Everything was perfect.
Daniel J
The gudie taking us over the altiplano was really infomative!
Madelaine O
Smithy, Martin and Pierro were all fantastic characters, well versed with knowledge of the land and really caring about the clients on the trip.

I can't rate all three of our leaders (Kate, Jacopo and Noel) highly enough - they all contributed to making it a trip I won't forget in a hurry. I thought they struck the balance excellently between being absolutely on top of the day to day business, while making sure that everyone had a good time (including leaving us to our own devices at times). I'd like to give a special 'shout out' to Noel, who was an absolute pleasure to travel with, a fantastic laugh, but always a reassuring presence in the group.

The organisation of the Community Trail trekking was excellent.

The crew who accompanied us on the Community Trek were fantastic - helpful and encouraging, they allowed everyone to go at their own pace, made it great fun, and were full of knowledge. I became fairly seriously ill with altitude sickness on the second day of the trek, but the crew were great and got me through what was a really difficult experience, offering help but allowing me to complete the trek at my own pace.
Peter W
Both crew were very good

The cooks and porters on the Community Trek did a wonderful job in looking after us, many thanks to them. Ruben and Jose were great tour guides!
Barbara Martina T
The crew set the mood - never let their possible bad days (if they had any, they hid them well) affect the group's mood, which must be extremely hard.
Carly D
We really enjoyed our time with both Eoin and Noel.
David E
Leader was incredible and made the trip what it truly was. Total trust as a driver, guidance of activities and always safe. A genuine person who is a real asset to Dragoman. Co-driver was great, always full of energy and never unwilling to help with anything - enthusiasm showed always.
Georgia S
Great guys. So enthusiastic and always eager to help!
