What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Not one highlight. I enjoyed ALL of the Inca, pre-Inca, and Spanish sites that we visited. I enjoyed the visit to Machu Picchu very much, but no more than other Inca sites. Maybe it's just too familiar from all the pictures I've seen of it over the years. Not sure why, but I particulalry enjoyed the visit to the funeral towers at Sillustani.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

"Machu Picchu was indeed the highlight climbing to the sun gate exhausting and exhilerating .The Inca bridge easy but a dangerous walk made more dangerous by the antics of a few young 20somes ( not on our group) Seeing the magnificant condors put on a show for us was a definate highlight. As was the optional trip to Ballestros island ( how do you spell that )  Why is it an optional trip as the alternative is to stay on the bus. We were lucky to have a humpback whale surface beside our boat give us the once over and head off with a wave of his tail.
Lake Titicaca was ordinary local women singing "row row row your boat" as we left gives you an idea of how touristy it is. The Nazca lines are obviously best viewed from the air."

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

"The whole holiday was diverse and there were many enjoyable stops. Macchu Pichu was the highlight though. The condors were amazing too. The other wow factor was definately the terracing after Colca canyon. Stunning!
All the food we had was tasty & the portion sizes were large"

This holiday takes you to all the main tourist sites in Peru and more. The scenery was amazing and varied (don't bother taking lots of  books as you'll spend your time on  the bus looking out of the window), there were plenty of opportuntities to shop for local handicrafts and to experience different facets of life in Peru .We had breakfast in the market at Arequipa, went  swimming in the Pacific and  in hot springs at Chivay, met peruvian farmers near Titicaca and got to be quite expert in Incan life and society , thanks to Explore's local  guides.The organisation of the tour was excellent and our tour guide a font of  knowledge on old and modern Peru - even if lunch was a bit of a moveable feast and investing in breakfast is recommended. The range of wildlife was fantastic - definitely take the optional tour to the Ballestas islands and the Amazon which was out of this world. And I regret not taking a flight over the Nazca lines (breakfast definitely not recommended!) Lots of people warn about safety in Peru but I didn't find it an issue when I went off on my own. It helps to speak a little Spanish. The highlight for me was Sullistani which was a very atmospheric place. And if you're travelling from the UK give Heathrow a miss and fly with KLM from Amsterdam on a direct flight to Lima with excellent food and entertainment. I only picked Explore as they did what I wanted in a specific time period but I would recommend them. ( PS - 14th May 2011)

The holiday exceeded my expectations in the variety of landscapes, sights and places we saw during the trip. I had thought that the highlight would be Macchu Picchu which was why I had chosen the trip, but other sites like Sacsayhuaman were equally impressive. The condors flying at the Colca Canyon were also an amazing experience- I couldn't decide whether just to watch in awe or try to get some decent photos. There was unfortunately industrial action around Cusco while we were there which meant a change in plans, but one that our courier Jo handled very well. What was most unexpected was that although various websites said that the rail link to Aguas Calientes had been restored, it is still not possible to do more of the journey by train. If your thinking about whether to add the Amazon Extension or not - then if at all possible do! It was amazing to be in the jungle for three days and I suppose that should also count as a highlight! The Refugio Amazonas is an amazing place to stay- our guide Paty was absolutely great and nothing was too much trouble for her. I'm so glad to be eating beans on toast for the rest of the year as I wouldn't have missed the jungle for anything. A good camera is a major asset on a trip like this! (PSA- 29th May 2010)
