Here are some practical tips to identify a reliable Travel Agency in Peru so you won’t have to worry about last-minute complications.

Millions of people all over the world take the opportunity of their vacations to travel to Peru and enjoy its different wonders, such as: Machu Picchu in Cusco, Lake Titicaca in Puno, Nazca Lines, and Manu National Reserve in the Amazon, among others.

But what do we have to be aware of before selecting the tour operator? How to identify a reliable travel agency in Peru? Let’s see it below.

Licenses and credentials are essential

Tourist economic activity in Peru is regulated by various agencies, mainly by the Regional Directorates of Foreign Trade and Tourism.

Therefore, one of the first things you should consider are the current licenses and/or credentials of the tourist agencies, which allow them to operate in a legal and responsible way.

Therefore, registration in the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur) and the municipal license are essential. In the same way, the commercial register and tax domicile are also important.

For example, Trip Peru has the following ones:

  • Company Register: Registered in Lima with registration Nº 11849370 and entry number C0001.
  • Tax domicile: 327 Schell Avenue Office #301, Miraflores, Lima, Peru
  • It is also important the taxpayer number (RUC) registered in the National Revenue Agency (SUNAT) and the accreditation in the ASTA (American Society of Travel Advisors).
  • Taxpayer Number (RUC)  20512626204
  • Trip Peru’s ASTA Certificate
  • Other associate references: Tripadvisor and Prom Perú.

Qualified assistance by travel experts

Another way to identify a reliable travel agency is by the quality and experience in travel assistance.

Travel agents must be well-trained to clearly and timely answer any questions about the tours. So they have to provide you with detailed information about Peru’s destinations, best travel dates, hotels categories, security, and documents, among ot Also, remember that every agency has the responsibility to specify what is, and what is not, included in travel packages.

For example, in northern Peru tours usually visit the museums of Chiclayo, where you have to pay an entrance fee. Your travel agency must specify whether or not these payments are included.

Quality, experience and gentleness in customer service!

Web Presence: Positive reviews and ranking, website and social media.

The best travel agencies in Peru have a professional website, where they present clear and detailed information about their kind of tours (experiential travel, adventure tourism, etc.), experience, benefits of the tours, contact details, accreditations, as well as testimonials from their customers. They also have an updated blog with useful articles for their readers.

On the other hand, they must also have web presence in social networks, where you will be able to check the reviews and ratings of other travelers.
