It was a great trip. Particularly memorable was the Andean Explorer train, trip to Macchu Picchu and Puna - but it was all wonderful!

Highlights: All day folk-costume and dance parade through streets of Puno (morning), and carnival with fantastic costumes (afternoon) a parade held by the different university departments which lasted 18 hours from 09.00 am til 03.00 am next day. Fantastic.
On the way to Copacobana in Bolivia we stopped to visit one of families who helped Thor Heyerdahl to build the famous Kontiki reed boat which attempted to trace the route of the first immigrants from South America to Easter Island. Bought a signed copy of a typical Lake Titicaca reed boat (signed by son), also fabulous alpaka cardigan and stunningly colourful tablecloth made by family members.
The MANY possible outcomes of height sickness, I had none of the expected symptoms, appart from being out of breathe, but over 4000 m. suffered from urine-retension, - fitted with catheter to complete holiday. Group leader Helmut was fantastic.

No problems with booking and information about group - it's useful to know the age range. Itinerary was detailed. Some advice about luggage would be useful eg a suitcase is fine. The tour guide did a good job .
The only problem was the guide had to leave before us on the last day to join another tour. There were a couple of problems for some travellers at the airport that were sorted out eventually by another Explore member of staff.
The wait at Lima airport was overlong and this felt like a wasted day at the end of what had otherwise been a very good holiday .

An amazing trip! Definitely the best I've been on! Highly reccomended!
There were so many highlights! Nazca lines, the amazing city of Arequipa, experiencing the high altitude as we moved into the Andes, and of course Machu Picchu . Not to mention a great tour guide as well!

My personal tips for anyone thinking of going:
- If you're travelling alone, be sure to ask about who else is on the trip to ensure there are some people of similar age, etc. There's a great crowd on mine, a variety of ages and background!
- I went during Jul/Aug, which was perfect! The Peruvian Winter but still so very hot compared to Britain, and nice and dry so no rain or mosquitos! Be sure to take plenty of sun tan lotion. I took a mosquito net, but it wasn't necessary.
- Taxis are very, very, cheap. So make the most of them.
- The itinerary contains a few 'free days', make sure to explore what's available in terms of day trips. We did a dune buggy tour in Nazca which was amazing!
- The altitude was a struggle at first so make sure to stay hydrated. Paracetamols help so make sure to pack plenty.
- So there's no concept of squash in Peru, as in Robinsons orange squash etc. So if you don't like water (I don't), make sure to take some with you otherwise you'll be stuck with overly sugary drinks the whole trip.

- This is quite a big one.. if you have the time, do try and learn some Spanish before you go. I know slim to no Spanish, and most Peruvians no slim to no English - this makes life awkward when you're in restaurants, taxis, and shops, etc.

Have fun!
