Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "It was an incredible experience and I loved seeing the different cultures and the diversity of wildlife"
Tribes Service: "Paul always provided a prompt response to any queries I had."


Casa Gangotena
A beautiful hotel, I was surprised by the continuous police prescence 'guarding' the entrance.
Mashpi Lodge
A wonderful experience, beautiful setting, knowledgeable enthusiastic guides.
Hotel del Parque
A beautiful, peaceful hotel.
Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo
This was my least favourite hotel. There was a lot of reconstruction work taking place. There was obviously a problem with the drains as that seemed to be part of the excavation work and unfortunately the smell in the bathroom was horrendous. I did mention it at the front desk but didn't recieve any feedback. The inclusive tours were also poor, I went to the early morning bird watching and the young guide was not very knowledgeable.
Sol y Luna Hotel
A beautiful setting, I loved all the extra touches like a hot water bottle in the bed. It was so peaceful and again the staff were very helpful.
Origin and Theory
Wonderful staff, extremely knowledgable guides, Antonio was exceptional.
