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

The highlight has to be the day spent at Machu Picchu, exploring the streets, temple and terraces in warm sunshine, but the day-long (optional) train ride from Puno to Cusco came a close second for its fantastic scenery, good food, live entertainment and luxurious facilities. I also thoroughly enjoyed our visit to a mountaintop community on Tequila Island - eating fresh trout next to a hedge of gladioli full of hummingbirds, in glorious weather &heavenly.

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

Walking the Inca Trail. The walking was great with incredible views and Inca sites on route. The organisation of the trip was faultless and, in that we began later in the days than most of the other trips, in 4 days of walking we only met one other group on the trail - this made such a difference - to get the wonderful scenery all to oneself!!!!. We were well looked after, good food and plenty of it. The rest of the trip was also good, I especially enjoyed 2 completely free days in Cusco where there are so many churches and museums to visit. I felt the amazon extension was a little disappointing, less well organised and a conspicuous lack of wildlife!!.

What an amazing and diverse country, full of history, culture and stunning scenery. This tour provides the perfect balance to enjoy and marvel at the history of the Inca’s, but to also enjoy the local hospitality and warmth of the people who welcomed us when visiting the towns and villages. Undoubtedly the highlight is the Inca Trail trek which took my breath away, revealing dramatic landscapes and views across the Andes that can only be found by foot, whilst the open sided wooden jungle huts nestled deep into the Amazon jungle took us into a whole new experience. It was like two adventures in one! (PMA - June 2011)

A great trip with a well thought out itinerary.  Spectacular scenery throughout.  Good accomodation and guides too. Doing the trail to macchu picchu over 4 days allowed time to visit the inca ruins along the way and ensured quiet and beautiful camp sites. Amazon extension well worth it... in a fantastic lodge.  Our advice - from Puno vist the Uros islands but skip the long slow boatride to tacquille and have an afternoon off travelling and get used to the altitude.  2. exchange money to nuevo sols n the UK (only need dollars for the explore bookings/rentals)  3.take the train option from Puno to Cusco... luxury! and 4. try to avoid flying with's a long way and the service and comfort on the airline wasn't great! (PMA - 17th Octoer 2010)
