Nov. 2019 • Friends
El servicio de Peru Andes Top inmejorable, comenzando por el transporte puntual a primera hora, aprox a las 4 am, hasta la llegada al punto de desayuno, inmejorable comida, el omelette de lo mejor, tambien nos atendieron con bebidas locales para aplacar el mar de altura; posteriormente el guiado hacia la cumbre y laguna muy metodico, asistieron a los amigos q no pudieron cargar con su equipaje, y el almuerzo buffet tambien muy bueno de regreso.

Communications difficile avec l'agence Peru Andes Top
Jul. 2019 • Solo
Lorsque j'ai acheté mon excursion de l'agence Peru Andes Top, il fallait indiquer le nom de mon hôtel. J'étais dans un airbnb alors j'ai voulu m'assurer qu'on allais pouvoir m'y prendre. Après 3 courriels, un texto, un message téléphonique et quelques messages Whatsapp, où à chaque occasion, je répétais mes coordonnées et l'adresse du airbnb, ce n'est que la veille de l'excursion à 17h44 qu'on m'a réécrit. J'ai finalement pu chatter avec Max et avec Edwin. Ce dernier m'a demandé de lui envoyer un Google maps de l'endroit où je suis logé. Je lui ai expliqué que l'adresse que je lui a donné se cherche facilement par Google maps sans problème. Je n'étais pas équipé pour lui faire parvenir.

Le lendemain matin à 4h10, jour de l'excursion, je reçois un Whatsapp du guide ou du chauffeur qui me demande les mêmes informations que j'avais déjà donné par plusieurs moyens et à plusieurs reprises à l'agence, à Max et Edwin. On me demande encore une fois un print de Google maps, que je n'étais pas plus en mesure de fournir. Il m'ont finalement trouvé quand même.

Pour ce qui concerne l'excursion elle-même, le tout s'est ben déroulé malgré la température moche de la journée (pluie, brouillard et neige). Il est à noter que contrairement à ce qui était indiqué dans l'annonce, le niveau de difficulté est plutôt de moyen à difficile, surtout qu'on monte une montagne abrupte dans la boue, la neige et le crottin d'âne. Une fois rendu au lac, la vue n'était pas du tout ce qu'on attendais, le brouillard cachait la montagne et le lac ne dégageait pas les couleurs qu'il devait vu l'absence de soleil. Malgré ceci, je dois souligner le bon travail de notre guide Nilton, J'était le seul du groupe qui ne parlait pas espagnol de façon courante et il a pu en faire des bouts en anglais. Nilton s'est assuré que tous ses condoritos aient pu bien de rendre et redescendre.

Dernière déception, l'excursion devait se terminer aux hôtels de chacun, mais nous avons été largués près du centre-ville de Cuzco. J'habitais San Blas, à une bonne demi-heure de marche de là.

Good afternoon Sir, First: I am so thankful for your review. Second: That re-questioning is part of our looking process. We have to make sure (more when our costumers are staying in Airbnb) that we completely know where their exact location is. Third: I am so deeply sorry that the weather wasn´t the most proper and placid for your tour. But those external facts are beyond our reach. I wish you could have had better climatic conditions. And last but not least: We pick you up at your hotel, but at the returning, we leave everybody in the same place. It´s part of the conditions that are explicated on the reservation. With no further additions Max.

Espectacular!!!
Un minitreking de una hora y cuarto muy buenooo!!! Recomiendo tener un entrenamiento mínimo... la subida es un poco agotador... la laguna se encuentra a 3850mts y el cuerpo poco acostubrado lo siente. Igual la experiencia vale la pena!!! La agencia muy atenta. Recomendado.
