The Only Peru Guide was established by Paul Jones, some seven years ago, now a resident in Peru. It is a continuous project to help visitors to Peru. We all need a little helping hand when travelling so that’s what we’re trying to do. It can be stressful planning a vacation no matter where you are going. We can help take that stress away. The Only Peru Guide is here to take some of that hassle away.

Peru has so much to offer the tourist, from the obvious Machu Picchu and the Historic city of Cusco to the less obvious mountain biking tours or less visited hikes. We, at The Only Peru Guide, try our best to give our honest and open thoughts on what to do when you get to Peru. We want to help you plan, help you choose, help you create great memories.

On our website you will find truthful reviews on everything from restaurants to Spanish schools to adventure interests. We have tried our best to break Peru down in to logical sections; Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca/Puno, Lima and Peru’s Amazon, as well as a section dedicated to Trekking and Adventure Activities. Within each of these parts there are subdivisions that make it easier for you to find out the best bits.  We have endeavored to make it navigable and quick to find what you are looking for.

We as a team have collectively visited, sampled, tried and tested a lot of what Peru has to offer. Therefore, we can truly and honestly review restaurants and cafés, pubs and nightclubs, hotels and hostels. We can give our candid and frank opinions on tour companies and tourist excursions. We want you to know the best treks to do, the best places to eat, the best hotels to stay in and how to do all that for the best prices. We want you to have a clear and true idea of the best things to do and what to avoid. We want you to have the most enjoyable, stress free and memorable trip to Peru.
