The South America Cosmos tour was beyond our expectation. It was well organized with a bonus of hotel upgrades in the Peru portion of the trip! Our tour director was professional and accommodating. Our local guides were likewise professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The itinerary in Peru was designed to acclimate us to the altitude changes which was quite helpful as we were able to fully enjoy the highlight of our trip to Machu Picchu. Overall, this was our 3rd tour with Cosmos and we have been quite satisfied with the value of their services.
