Our Travel Reviews
We did a custom 15 day tour of Patagonia including Buenos Aires, Ushuaia, El Calafate (Perito Moreno Glacier) , El Chalten (Fitz Roys), Torres del Paine National Park and Santiago. Seppe was wonderful setting up this tour for us. We suggested locations and he arranged the transfers, hotels, tours, etc. Great Job.
- Hotels were a nice mix of small boutiques and larger hotels. Locations were terrific. Staff and amenities were perfect for what we needed. Breakfasts at the hotels were very good. Hotel Las Torres in the park was amazing. Thanks Seppe!
- Guides/excursion were outstanding everywhere except for one location. Language skills and local knowledge were terrific and often tours were adaptable to our needs and interests. We canoed the Beagle Channel, trekked the Fitz Roys, amazing excursions options at Las Torres, winery tour, outstanding lunch overlooking the Pacific at Vina del Mar.
- All transfers between airports, hotels and activities went very smoothly. In country air flights were fine and departed on schedule.
This is our second trip with SATO. We just can't say enough for the quality of experience and value they bring. We continue to recommend SATO to our friends.

Our trip was fantastic. All the guides and drivers were excellent with very good knowledge of Peru's tourist attractions. All of them were very punctual. All hotels were upto our expectations with the exception of Hotel Hatun at Machu Piccchu. There was lot of noise coming from the adjoining building's construction work. To operate the fireplace, reception had to be called, even then the fireplace didn't work. However, the staff at the hotel were very friendly and very helpful.
Overall trip experience was 9 out of 10.
My travel consultant, Seppe, did a great job in organizing the trip for me. He listened to my requests and answered all my questions in a timely manner. Even when there were issues during the trip, he is able to fix it for me. I sincerely thank him for this unforgettable trip in Peru. I would recommend SATO to everyone who wants to travel to South America.
First of all, I want to begin by stating, we've never used a travel service before. We usually plan and take care of all details ourselves. But with the lack of time and not knowing the language we looked into sato. SATO is absolutely the way to go, I simply emailed Seppe our availability and interests and he filled in the blanks with a few emails. All arrangements were taken care of, pickups, transfers, hotels, tours, some meals and all tickets. It was wonderful and so relaxing!
It was very tailored to our likes, a mixture of group tours, private tours and free time. Seppe was so responsive answering any questions we had and all the tour guides Janet, Patty, Ivan and Rosa were so knowledgable and helpful. The drivers David and Morris were great too (and some of those hairpin turns were intense!). Boris greeted us and was our main contact once we arrived, also a wealth of information. We spent 10 days in Cusco, Ollantaytambo & Aguas Calliente. Machu Picchu was incredible but was only 1 part of this incredible trip. The sacred valley has so much to see and the people are wonderful.
If you've ever had the desire to visit Peru. Just GO, you will never regret it. SATO tours is the perfect way to have it all come together!
We highly recommend SATO Travel for creating a customized trip that fit our needs. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. The lodging, especially Posada Amazonas and the Sonesta in the Sacred Valley, exceeded our expectations. Seppe worked with us to make it efficient and cost effective.
I just got home from "A Trip of a Lifetime" that was arranged through SATO Travels! Top on my bucket list was Machu Picchu and after a friend recommended Seppe Bleukx at SATO Travel all arrangements were flawlessly put together. Seppe put together a 9 day trip that covered Lima, Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. He listened to all my requests, answered all my questions, and prepared an itinerary that lived up to all my expectation, graciously and timely.
Every moment of our trip was orchestrated to meet our every need, from airport pick ups, tour guides, drivers, train tickets, bus transfers, airline tickets, and the most luxurious hotels I could ever imagine.
Everyone on their team went above and beyond the call of duty from Juan in the Lima office and Boris in the Cusco office to make sure our trip was special and all details came off without a glitch.
All of our tour guides were exceptional! Henry who led us through Cusco and the Sacred Valley was so knowledgeable, a local with a degree in tourism, he passionately filled us in on the historical, spiritual, and cultural significance of all of the sites we visited. Paul, another local guide at Machu Picchu also shared the same passion and knowledge, along with curtious care in our experience of the citadel.
I cannot recommend SATO Travel enough! If this trip is on your list of must sees, then Seppe at SATO travel should be on your must contact list! Don't wait, just do it!
