Some previous happy day hike clients said:

Ethel & Charlie of Scotland

They stayed in Morales Guesthouse in Huaraz and did 12 day Hikes and Tours 
Thank you for a great time in Huaraz. from the 1st email request until Paul took us to the airport in Lima we received first class service with everything going to plan.The packed lunches were great and kept us going through the day. All the guides were very knowledgeable & had a good command of English. The day hikes were most enjoyable with amazing scenery & all the guides were patient while we took countless photos. Keep up the good work. We would have no hesitation to book with you again. I will recommend your company to some friends.

Dr Stephen Murray from the UK

‘ I spent a week with Peruvian Andes Adventures staying at their hostel and walking each day with a guide, sometimes on my own and sometimes as part of a group. I wanted to sample their day treks and see some of the more scenic areas within reach of Huaraz. I had a fantastic week . The scenery and mountains were unforgettable –definitely worth coming back for more . The day trips take you right in among some of the highest mountains in Peru [and in S America] including Huascaran and left me awe struck with the rugged beauty of the area –Scotland will never be quite the same again !Finally a word about Eli Morales and the other staff including the guides. This is a family business and runs efficiently and courteously. I cannot speak highly enough of their professionalism, reliability, friendliness and willingness to impart local knowledge. Not to mention Eli’s invaluable help when problems cropped up with my flight back from Alta to Lima.’

TOURS by CAR

Road Travel:

Most of the day hikes & tours require road travel to the start of the hike & return back to Huaraz. Roads are generally dirt roads (not paved) and for many of the hikes or tours they are high mountain roads and can be bumpy. Times taken for road travel are longer than you might expect for the distance covered.
