Aaron was a wonderful guide; knowledgeable, personable, punctual and adaptable. He showed us around Lima, had us to his Mom's house for a delicious dinner, and then took us to Cusco and through the Sacred Valley to Machu Pichu. The trip was well planned with many interesting stops. Aaron also set up connections and tours for the rest of our trip to Lake Titicaca - which was a huge help. Thank you Aaron! You made our trip easy, interesting and fun!

This tour was the best tour ever. Ever. Everything was planned, organized and handled by Aaron, accommodations and restaurant choices were top of the line. Never did we have to wait in a line for a highlight we were visiting, and the highlights were not rushed or crowded into one day, Aaron balanced tour time and our time perfectly. Aaron treated us to a traditional Peruvian barbecue, cooked in hot stone in the ground and to die for ceviche served by his mom, superb!! No other guide can offer that.

There is no way to praise and thank Aaron enough for an AMAZING tour (actually multiple tours) in Peru. From the time he picked us up at the airport in Lima until a week later dropping us off at the train in Cusco everything was arranged. Pickups, tours in Lima, Cusco, Ollantaytambo, and especially the two at Machu Picchu. He even climbed Huayna Picchu with us. And the 3 meals included are NOT to be missed. As a fellow TBL guide I really appreciated his efforts. Thank you SO MUCH Aaron!
Aaron was very helpful in all aspects of my trip from setting up an itinerary that I liked to helping out with all logistics including airline tickets,train tickets hotel rooms and site entrance tickets. Aaron is very knowledgeable in the many sites that we toured in Peru and I would recommend Aaron as a guide for sure.

Aaron definitely deserves his excellent reputation as a tour guide. He is super-friendly, flexible, knowledgeable, and can adjust to any size problem or request. We learned a lot and laughed a lot. He also makes a Hell of a pisco sour. His mom is a Hell of a cook. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Aaron was very accommodating. I booked one tour with him and told him of my complete expectations and he designed a complete custom tour for me. His covering of all details was beyond any expectations.

Excellent trip! Aaron coordinated everything for us, trip had all the convenience of a group tour yet was very private and tailored to us. Mix of major tour sites with local vibes. Highly recommend!

I/we cannot say enough about Aaron's guidance, planning, help and knowledge for this trip. IT WAS THE FINEST. We wanted to learn more about the culture and the history of Peru and of course Machu Picchu. Our two days in Lima were great including the marvelous luncheon in his home provided by his mother. Pisco sours, ceviche and tenderloin. It doesn't get much better. The sacred valley, Machu Picchu, the trip there and back more than met our expectations. The whole trip was great. Ed & Karol
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you Ed & Karol.... it was great to meet you and be part of your trip in South America. We hope you come back one day. Aaron

Aaron was a spectacular person and guide, this is our fourth time using Tours by Locals but Aaron outdid everyone else by 1000%. At every corner that we turned he had a new trick, a restaurant, archeological site, farms etc. Lake Titicaca and Sacred Valley were spectacular but getting up at 3:45 AM was worth it when we visited Machu Picchu, Aaron was with us dawn to late night, he became part of our family the visit to his house was a gesture that we have never experienced. be very proud of Aaron

Aaron is a great tour guide whom I now also consider a good friend. He did a fantastic job of overcoming problems that might have ruined a good part of my trip including a transportation workers strike in Cusco and Lan airline having cancelled our reservations without notice. All in all Aaron worked very hard to keep me happy and give me a great overview of his country. My sole complaint was that we had shared accommodations at one stop which, as a very private person, I felt a little uncomfortable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much to put your holiday vacations in my hands, All this little unexpected problems gave me a headache but i am happy have not affect the itinerary. Hope you come back to South America soon. Aaron

Our guide was Aaron, I can say it was one of our best trips. He was in charge of everything from airline tickets, train tickets for our lunch and made sure our stay at the hotels were of good quality. The first day we were picked at the airport, he took us to his house to prepare a typical dish of Peru and teach us to do a good Pisco Sour. We went to great restaurants at night. He gave us the opportunity to meet Peru from a Peruvian vision which was very interesting.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you enjoy every detail I choose, and made your trip unforgettable.
