What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

I have several highlights from the tour. The Andean Explorer, Colcha Canyon, Macchu Picchu, the tour of Lima with Omar, the cathedrals and churches including convent in Arequipa, museums in Nazca, and Cusco, the landscape, the people, Lake Titicaca. The markets. It is one of the best countries and trips I have ever done with Explore.

Tour Leader Name

Lobo

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Lobo was great. Omar was brilliant in Lima. Local guides were good.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Try and get some altitude sickness tablets from a travel clinic or get them when you are there. A lot of bus travel on public buses.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

We had to get Lobo to book the trip in Lima and paid extra. An extra day in Lima at either end of trip would be good with city tour laid on.

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

The whole trip was perfect. I saw and did what I thought we would do. The scenery was great. The flight over nasca was outstanding. Arequipa with its colonial look and the volcano and snow capped mtns. was picture perfect. Puno and Lake titicaca,along with visiting the Uro people was another outstanding part of the this trip. The train ride from Puno to Cusco was a very unexpected  extra bonus to this trip. Scenery to die for. And then finally the reason for my trip,  Machu Picchu. All I can say is WOW WOW what a place. It is so much better that I would have expected. Doing the tours out of Cusco was a nice way to finish off a great trip.

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

We enjoyed the whole tour, Peru is a land of contrast and spectaular beauty. The Peruvian people were very friendly and this was one of our most memorable trips. We were in a nice group of 10. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. The transport was efficient and comfortable. All the places we visited were interesting and worth going to. It is difficult to highlight the most memorable moment when you visit Nasca and see the lines, or see the Volcanoes of Arequipa onroute to the Colca Canyon and then seeing 12 giant condors, or having stayed on taquile island and swim in Lake Titicaca after visiting the  uros islands, and of course the spectaular Machu Picchu. Peru is a must for people to visit and this trip is the best.

How was your Explore Tour Leader?

Nilton, who was our tour leader, was one of the best. He was fun,knowledgeable, helpful, and showed us everything with enthusiasm. Nothing was a bother and everything was well organised and calm.

Once again I was very lucky with the group and the tour leader. Everybody so nice, well travelled and the adventurous type!! The tour leader was very good and really helpful. We toured around most of the country, from Lima to Nazca to Arequipa to Lake Titicaca to Cusco and Machu Picchu. Hours and hours of a coach journey across the Nazca desert to reach the Nazca lines and other pre-Inca archaeological sites. Just after a few days I wanted to escape from the sand, wind and the absolute lack of the colour green. Then after a whole night of travel we reached 2400 m on the Andes and yet again a very desertic environment. Arequipa, the ‘white city’ is very interesting, in the middle of active volcanoes. We have met Juanita, the young girl sacrificed to the gods of Ampato volcano, whose body has been preserved intact because frozen. What sad story of her and many other children sacrificed to the Inca gods…We couldn’t go on with our plan to visit some islands on the Titicaca Lake as there were violent riots in Puno, the town we were due to take the boat from. So, we spent some time in a near-by town, infamous for all sorts of nasty things but we went on treks on mountains near-by. Finally we managed to reach the islands of Uros and Tequile and meet the rather primitive native people living on that immense lake at 4350 m!! Breathing was really challenging and many of the group were quite ill. From here after a whole journey on the Andes amongst pretty valleys and impressive canyons, other archaeological site Inca and pre-Inca, breathless views and luckily so much ‘greener’ we arrived to picturesque Cusco. From here we got the train to Machu Picchu, a wonderful journey with spectacular views of high mountains covered in snow and forests. Machu Picchu is a truly fascinating place which I will never forget. (QPS - 10th December 2010)
