Incan history informs every aspect of Robinson's trips to the Andes, including the riveting destinations of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley. He specializes in off-the-beaten-track tours, often guided by history experts. "I'm a keen amateur bird watcher–ask me about the cock-of-the-rocks in Machu Picchu, macaws at the Manu clay licks, or the Spatuletail hummingbird at Chachapoyas!" he says. Robinson also creates deep-dive gastronomy tours in Lima, complete with private cooking workshops, market tours, and, of course, meals at some of the best restaurants in the city. Many of his clients combine vists to Peru with nearby countries, giving Robinson the opportunity to introduce them to Bolivia's Uyuni salt flats, the mysterious Tiwanaku ruins, and professional astronomy sessions at Kachi Lodge.

"There's a reason that Thomas is such a sought after travel consultant when it comes to trips to South America, and particularly Peru. He asks insightful questions and listens intently from the first moment you meet him to ultimately curate a trip that is 100 percent tailor-made to your interests. I recently worked with Thomas to design a trip to Peru (a surprise for my wife) and every single detail was absolutely spot-on. All of his recommendations concerning our accommodations, dining and daily itinerary/excursions were impeccable. He has so many contacts in the region he can make almost anything happen — just ask! He was so responsive to all of my questions during the planning phase and, during our trip, he and his team checked in with us regularly and were available anytime through the agency's app, which showed our daily itinerary, flight and hotel information, and specific recommendations in each location for restaurants and activities. Plus, we were upgraded at hotels over and over again thanks to Thomas. My wife and I are very well traveled and have worked with many travel consultants over the years. Thomas is, without question, one of the very best." - Terry B.
