"My wife and I had our two week trip organized through Conquer Peru. It was certainly one of the best experiences we have ever had! We had our itinerary planned out very well. We were met at each destination with a guide/driver who knew our itinerary very thoroughly. Accommodations were centerally located, clean, and comfortable. After doing some research, we found that Conquer Peru gets you the best prices. They are partnered with reputable businesses and local companies. Matilde did a wonderful job of organizing! I strongly recommend a consultation before you make any plans.
"My husband and I and our two college-aged sons travelled to Peru on an amazing trip organized by Matilde. We spent two weeks in country including an amazing four days in the Amazon plus time in Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Matilde's contacts in Peru were all warm and welcoming and we felt well taken care of. At one point we had to make a change in our schedule and Matilde and her contacts handled it very smoothly and professionally. We felt like their top priority was to make sure our trip was exactly what we hoped it would be. We loved our experience with Conquer Peru and highly recommend Matilde for her knowledge of the country and experience in planning an amazing adventure.
"Knowledgeable guides are like family at every location, from Machu Pichu and Cuzco to Puno and Lake Titicaca,( titihaha), the hotels where our reservations where made are first class in Puno the Overlook stay on our arrival as the evening closed in gave us a view of the Lake that was awesome. I recommend seeing it from this view. I enjoyed the visit to Peru with the guides and helps of the family of Conquer Peru, the name is well respected. At MachuPichu the guides all know each other and will help in showing you around should you lose your guide in your picture taking of such a pyramid creation of a marvelous civilization.
My wife and I and our Peruvian guest where very well pleased with our experience there, the train ride to Cuzco from the Ruins was the Rave. I cant find all the words needed to place the positive emotions of the beauty and equal service that was rendered to us in our few days there. I should go back for a few weeks there.
"Fantastic vacation to Peru that met all my expectations, ending with a one of a kind experience at Machu Pichu. The vacation package included guided tours of many attractions in and around Lima, Paracas, Ica, Cusco, and Machu Pichu. The tour guides from Conquer Peru were very enthusiastic explaining the history and traditions of the Incas. Matilde planned a travel package at the best hotels with a one on one experience that a travel agency might not have provided.
"I went on a group trip with Conquer Peru and it was the most incredible experience! I've never been on a trip that packed SO MANY activities and experiences into two weeks, but I truly feel like I got to see the best of the best. Not only did we travel across the entire country, seeing Machu Picchu and the Amazon, Lima and Lake Titicaca, but we knew every restaurant, hotel, and site we visited was an authentic, high quality experience because of Matilde's expertise and knowledge about Peru. It's so fun to travel with a local who can be both a guide and a friend as you take in all the sights. My favorite part was the unique hotels Matilde found for us, like the bungalows along the Amazon river. And of course, Machu Picchu exceeded all my expectations. It really was the trip of a lifetime, thanks to Conquer Peru's organizing!

"Conquer Peru provided excellent guides and a true Incan experience throughout our trip. KB adventures was the outfit they used for porters, and the food and service was exceptional. Our guides were all very educated, humorous and patient with us gringos.
Any question was answered prior to the trip, and I suggest asking anything you can think of to make your trip more comfortable. I'd do it again and ask more!
"Matilde, truly a trip of a lifetime. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know interested in making this trek. Who knows, maybe I’ve got it in me to do this trek one more time. Joy
"Our family had an amazing experience thanks to conquer Peru. We visited Lima, Arequipa,Chivay, Puno, Lake Titikaka, Cuzco y Machu Pichu. Matilde and every single person involved we’re so kind and friendly. Thanks Matilde and her crew for this amazing experience!
"My cousin and I traveled to Peru this past May. We had an amazing trip and fell in love with the people the place the food everything!! It was a seamless visit because of the wonderful tour guides we had from Conquer Peru travel agency the took such good care of us and showed us so much with out making us feel overwhelmed they gave us plenty of time to rest and enjoy the food and shopping. I highly recommend them as they are very knowledgeable about all things Peru and answered all my questions. I have recommended them to all my friends and family.
"What an amazing trip. Matilde did such a great job putting the trip together. Franklin in Peru was very helpful. Everybody was great. I will most definitely recommend Conquer Peru.
"I am grateful for Conquer Peru and all their coordination in making this trip possible for my partner and I. We were both able to enjoy our vacation and not have to worry about navigating a new country or getting lost. All the tour guides were really generous and we enjoyed being able to see so many different locations: Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Rainbow Mountain, and the Amazon Rainforest. No matter where you want to visit in Peru, Conquer Peru has an itinerary for you. Best of all they were able to ensure I had vegan meals throughout the trip. Definitely recommend.
"I found Matilda from Conquer Peru’s Instagram account. We discussed my inquiry via Instagram message and managed a pretty good deal for a private tour to visit the Rainbow mountain. 1 day before the tour, we were lucky that Matilda was in town for another tour, so we met up for a quick brief for the following day’s tour. She was helpful & such a dear.
The tour itself was with a local guide named Anibal (cmiiw with the spelling) with excellent english and was very insightful about the local culture of Cusco & the surroundings. He was also so patient with us, bcs the climbing to Rainbow Mountain wasn’t easy!!! (Plus it was snowing heavily, and we weren’t appropriately dressed for it)
Overall it was an amazing experience, and would totally recommend anyone going to Peru to join Conquer Peru! Thanks Matilda!
"Matilde put together an incredible itinerary for me for my 2 weeks solo travelling in Peru. She really got to know my personality and my travel style to come up with the perfect places and activities for my stay in Peru. It was a custom made trip for me that I will always cherish. What made it outstanding is Matilde has a local expert in every place in Peru. I was always greeted at the airport and then taken to my hotel so I never had a worry at all the whole time. Highlights included a gourmet local food walking tour in Lima, The Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu, staying at a research center in the jungle. And the wonderful guides and contacts in every city - they were all exceptional and went above and beyond. Matilde was also checking in with me along the way to make sure all was going well. Amazing service! Overall a magical trip that will stay in my heart for a long time. Thanks Matilde !
"Matilde Melendez is a cheerful, friendly, tour director who thought of every detail. It was my first time to Peru and I felt I got a real taste of what the country has to offer from Lima to Cusco, the Sacred Valley the Amazon jungle and all the little towns in between. Of course, Machu Picchu was even better than anticipated! Getting there was super easy thanks to Matilde's superior planning and detail. All in all, it was a delightful adventure with a fantastic tour guide!
"I would highly recommend using Conquer Peru to book your travel to Peru! Matilde was very responsive to all of my questions and helped calm any of the travel nerves I had. The trip itself was the experience of a lifetime. From being called to dance on stage at the Damajuana in Lima to meeting locals who are changing the world in the Amazon rainforest to seeing Machu Picchu with my own eyes and hiking to the top of Rainbow Mountain is blinding snow - how could you not have the most life changing trip ever? I loved my time with Conquer Peru so much, I'm going back in July 2020 to hike the Inca trail!
"My trip on the Inca Trail this October (2016) was easily the trip of a lifetime. I found the experience to be the most memorable trip I have taken.
The contacts in Lima (Monica) and in Cusco (Franklin) met me at the airports, and made every effort to make the visit trouble free. They were gracious hosts and very knowledgeable about all aspects of the Inca culture. On the trek, the guide (Jorge) was exceptionally congenial and took the time to point out interesting sites, plant and animal life and had an extensive knowledge of Inca history. He managed the trek professionally and everyone had a wonderful time. Since I am an older trekker, Jorge gave me a lot of attention to ensure my safety, and let me proceed at my own pace.
Aside from the wonders of the Inca ruins, I have to mention the people were all gracious, friendly and accommodating. The porters are a sight to behold as they run up and down the trail hauling loads on their backs that amazed all of us. Do this trek and have the experience of a lifetime!

"As a recent college graduate, myself and two friends wanted to go on a trip that that would have lasting influence on our lives. Going to Peru with Conquer Peru's help made that a reality! Conquer Peru created an easy link to set up explorations, city tours, and experience the Peruvian culture way beyond any of our imaginations.
I was impressed by Conquer Peru's knowledge of the country and their connections to top flight tour guides that made three non fluent Spanish speaking 22 year olds feel safe and secure while also having tons of fun.
Machu Picchu and Huacachina Lagoon, were clear cut favorites for me and my friends and without Conquer Peru's sound advice on what destinations fit with our time, budget, and priorities, Huacachina would of never been on our radar. I can without a doubt in my mind say that If I hear or know anyone interested in traveling to Peru, the first thing I will do is tell them to use Conquer Peru for their professionalism, knowledge, friendliness and the genuine sense of caring they showed me and my amigos over the extent of our 3 week trip!

"We wanted to see all we could possibly see in the two weeks we had in the country. With Conquer Peru we were able to maximize our time and see everything we set out to see and more!
Conquer Peru arranged every aspect of the trip perfectly. I was impressed by the details taken care of such as getting off a train and thinking that I would have to hunt for transportation, but instead, getting greeted by a friendly guide.
I would highly recommend Conquer Peru to everyone considering a trip to Peru.
The decisions were ours to make but once they had been made we could relax and enjoy ourselves without a care. The guides were all very professional and punctual and made sure we got the maximum experience out of every day.

"Our three day trek to Machu Picchu was an experience of a lifetime for all of us. The guides were exceptionally patient and helpful, the food was amazing, and the views were breathtaking!
The girls loved their visit to the jungle! They each wanted to get the best picture of the parrots at the salt lick, and the pet monkey at the lodge was a huge hit!
- Girl Scouts Western Washington
"Conquer Peru was fantastic. We didn’t have the details of our Peru trip figured only that we wanted to visit Machu Picchu. Matilde provided us with several options to help us better plan our Peru trip. We were provided with taxi service to and from the airport as well as a full day Sacred Valley Tour. The taxis drivers were fantastic and felt extremely safe.
- Tim R. Woodinville, WA
"My favorite part of my trip was the four days we spent on the hike. Being out in nature, friends and family comradery, physical challenge, the reward at the end, the learning experience, was a dream come true! With Conquer Peru you are treated EXTREMELY well by great people! The guides and porters are very hardworking genuine people who give you a wonderful time. They are laid back and cater to your needs to help make your experience enjoyable.
- Jeff B. Seattle, WA
"From the moment we stepped foot on the tarmac in Peru to the moment we flew home, our trip was well orchestrated with opportunities to experience whatever it was that we wanted to see, without being too scripted. We were able to decide what we wanted to do and the following day our ride arrived on time and took us to our destination, whether it was the countryside, some ruins, or the market.Every aspect of my trip was top-notch and I would un-hesitantly and unequivocally recommend Conquer Peru to anyone looking for that trip of a lifetime.
- Brian F Seattle, WA
"Everyone was very friendly, we really enjoyed working with Matilde. She even arranged us cars when we didn't expect it, she was on top of her game! Franklin was very friendly and helpful in Cusco, we felt safe with him and trusted his opinions.
We would recommend working with Conquer Peru to our friends. Working with you made our trip seamless and so easy!
- Mike S. & Jessica R. Kirkland, WA
"Conquer Peru made the whole experience easier and I felt a lot safer and comfortable knowing we had a team of tour guides and agents helping us out.
Thanks so much for all the help!!
- Ryan E, Los Angeles, CA
"I initially found the idea of going to Peru very intimidating. I don’t speak Spanish, I had never been to South America, and I really didn’t have time to do a lot of research. There were many things that I was reluctant about, and ultimately I never would have taken on a trip like this without the help of Conquer Peru.
Not only did we have the privilege of being guided by locals, we also had the freedom to choose some independent experiences once we felt comfortable. My boyfriend and I had the most beautiful experience staying in Cusco on our own. We took a Peruvian cooking class which had us shopping in a 100-year-old Peruvian market, when we returned to Lima we ate brunch at the top of a fancy hotel tower overlooking the ocean, and we toured world famous architecture in the Barranco district of Lima.
If you are considering taking a trip I would highly recommend investing in the guidance of experts like those at Conquer Peru, the experiences that will result will pay you back in life long memories!
Thank you Conquer Peru!

"Working with Conquer Peru really enhanced our travel experience in Peru. We did not have to worry about anything throughout our trip and it was really nice to just "go with the flow" and not worry what we should do next, or where to sleep. It was such a stress-free trip that it was perfect!
