Tailor made holiday in Peru
Memorable parts? EVERYTHING - it was just great! Tips? To inform themselves very early (6 month before booking) to get the most out of it. We therefore had the best holidays ever and people we met on our tour were just jealouse, because we could do all the cool stuff (we had organised the permits for Huayna Picchu, the Trek to Huchuy Qosqo etc.) Local benefits? Yes I do Overall rating? Great! (more)Barbara Buchegger
From £3350 including UK flights
Hiking the Inca Trail in Peru
Great fun and an amazing experience. Thank you to our brilliant guide, the incredibly athletic and dedicated porters and to the guys in the UK who organised the trip for us; everything was perfect. (more)Elfie Burgess
The most memorable part of the trek was on Day 2 where we hit the highest point of the trail at 4,732m! (more)Wei Seng Mak
This was the chance of a lifetime and we grabbed it with both hands! A fantastic experience and I cannot recommend it enough! (more)Erica Johnstone
From £610 excluding flights
Bolivia and Peru tour
Memorable parts? Inca Trail! Making it and seeing Machu Picchu. Tips? Bring clothing for a variety of weather. Be prepared for early mornings, the possibility of altitude sickness... The more in shape you are, the more you will get out of the trip as well! Local benefits? Yes, I think the homestays were great, and the trip encompassed ecotourism, especially in the Amazon. Overall rating? Great. (more)Rachel Carbonell
From £2800 - £3235 excluding flights
Inca Trail & Amazon holidays
The Inca Trail was a challenge...you need to be fit. (more)Christopher Innerd
The most exciting part of my holiday was walking through the Sun Gate after climbing the last 50 super steep steps of the Inca Trail. We were so happy to have done it. (more)Julie Fahrner-Schibli
There were some many memorable moments - from watching Machu Picchu arise out of the mist to spotting Giant Otters in the lake in the Amazon. The whole holiday was exciting. (more)Misbah Arif
From £1440 including domestic flights only
Family teenager holiday in Peru
Memorable parts? The camping, food and walking through the Sun Gate and seeing Machu Piccu are a few of my many highlights. Our guide, Reni was terrific and the family we travelled with were super. The holiday gradually gears you up for the big trek, you acclimatise in Cusco before exploring the Sacred Valley and attempting the mountain bike ride. Tips? The accommodation is on the whole fairly basic, with one or two quirky gems, but we weren't expecting the hotel in Agua Calientes... (more)Jo Turnbull
From £2954 - £3264 including UK flights
Arequipa to Machu Picchu Peru tour
Memorable parts? Condors. Mountains; Machu Picchu; Alpacas; La Paz; Titicaca; .... Tips? Make sure you have plenty of camera capacity. Be prepared for good food and hot nights. Local benefits?

South America tour, coast to coast
Brilliant, amazing and so informative and well organised by our guide Etienne (more)Anne Marie Murray
For me it was a life long goal to see Machu Picchu, which no picture or video can replace the memories logged in my head of the sheer size and awe of this place. But also whilst travelling through other countries, the beautiful landscapes just amaze you. (more)Michael North
Every day was a wonderful experience during our stay in Brazil and Ecuador but I guess the Galapagos will be the most memorable. (more)Ann Hammersley
From £2888 - £2938 excluding flights
Peru tailor made holiday, highlights
Our trip across Peru definitely benefitted local communities, because much of our travel was hosted by them. (more)Simon McArthur
The whole experience was superb - but if I had to pick one it was arriving at Macchu Pichu at 5.00pm after a day's hike to find it empty (it closes at 5.00pm so everyone had left). An empty Macchu Pichu was an unexpected surprise. (more)Ric Pimental
From £1650 excluding flights
Peru tailormade holiday
Memorable parts? Peru is a wonderful destination with so much more to offer than just the iconic Machu Picchu - all thoroughly recommended. Tips? As we did, do the circuit in an anti-clockwise direction, so that you finish up with Macchu Pichu as the jewel in the crown, but don't miss out Arequipa and Colca Canyon. Local benefits? In a relatively poor country where tourism is so important to the economy, every aspect of such a trip benefits the people somehow - even paying... (more)Paul Mors
From £1530 excluding flights
Peru family adventure holiday
Memorable parts? We were hiking for few hours through beautiful Inca trail and at the end we had seen Machu Picchu in clouds and then in a full sun. Tips? Take good rain gear when you travel during wet season. We were there in December and weather was good, but sometimes we got surprises. Local benefits? I think we benefit local people. We visited places stayed in hotels, bought souvenirs. It seems, money we spend stayed there. I hope money collected in tickets will be... (more)Iwona Warszawska
From £1353 excluding flights
Peru and Inca Trail small group tour
One of the best I have had, a truly wonderful experience...the trip to Machu Picchu stands out just because it is such an iconic place, but the rainforest, the desert, lake Titicaca, Cusco, Colcha Canyon, were all brilliant places to visit. (more)David Greaves
The holiday was superb from start to finish and far exceeded our expectations. The expected highlights of Macchu Picchu etc lived up to expectations with the remaining destinations visited exceeding them (rainforest... colca canyon and sacred valley). (more)Duncan Cairns
Utterly fantastic! (more)Jo Curry
From £975 excluding flights
Inca trail & Amazon Rainforest holiday
Extremely enjoyable. There was a lot of travel involved and a fully packed itinery but well worth it as we seen so much and so many great experiences. (more)Keith Charters
The overall experience was very good. ...The Inka Trail and the first glimpse of Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate. (more)Chris Chaddock
An optional visit to a farm in the rainforest was real eye-opener. The Libertador Tambopata lodges were excellent and gave you a real feel for the rainforest. (more)John Duff
From £2899 - £3199 including UK flights
Highlights of Peru holiday
It was a great experience and I was surprised by the diversity offered by Peru; the cities being very different from the smaller towns and the towns being vastly different from the solitude of the Inca trail and the Amazon. (more)Riaan Breedt
Absolutely amazing!!! I would definitely recommend and would do it again if I could! (more)Kristiina Puusaari-Sheahan
From £2199 - £2399 excluding flights

Very well organized travel, beautiful country with interesting contrasts (from desert to amazon jungle), kind people, good level of travel possibilities and accommodation. Recommend to people who like to be in the close touch with country life. (more)Igor Borisek
Many great memories. Machu Pichu and the Amazon jungle would have to top the list. Viewing the Nazca lines and the sand dunes of Huacachina were also really special. (more)Stuart Rieger
Walking in Chivay region independently was one of the highlights, and a great starting point for the holiday. We also spent some time with a charity in Ollantaytambo and got to know some fantastic people working for the charity as well as local families. (more)Jane Lewis-Evans
From US $1835 including domestic flights only

From £2549 - £2949 including UK flights
Peru holiday, Cusco to Lake Titicaca
Memorable parts? The trip up to Machu Puchi, our guide Wilfredo was very knowledgeable and stopped to let us drink in the pure awesomeness of it all and when we reached the top the feeling was surreal and brought not just a lump to my throat but a tear to my ear. Tips? Take plenty of insect repellent as the mosquitos are in their millions Local benefits? Peru's main economy is from mining but all our guides stressed how important tourism is to their country Overall rating? My... (more)John Hawkins
From £1095 excluding flights

(more)Ruth Hindshaw

Jungle conservation & research, Peru
Memorable parts? Getting to spend time walking through the jungle and seeing so many great animals and birds. The best moments were the tree frogs, manu poison frog and the rainbow boa! I really enjoyed the construction of the bird hides and biogarden even though sometimes it was really hard work! Pancakes for breakfast were great! Tips? There was a lot of walking and physical activity so itís really important to expect to do lots when you get there and probably need reasonable fitness! Local... (more)Melanie Veal
From £1475 excluding flights
South America overland tour
Memorable parts? Iguassu Falls the Uyuni salt flats and the Inca Trail. Tips? Donít go with this operator and donít worry about the language barrier. Local benefits? In parts but I think it could have been better in particular on the Brazilian leg (I did the southern cross with this operator) where I donít think there was any effort to interact with the locals. Overall rating? Overall it was an amazing experience I think the trip needs a few tweaks and if Iím honest... (more)Tim Antill
From £4049 - £4249 excluding flights
Peru tailor made holiday, Machu Picchu & Tambopata
Memorable parts? Taking boat trips on the side tributaries of the Amazon! We loved seeing all the animals. Tips? Allow more time at the Ankatera Maccu Picchu Hotel. There is a lot to do there and we didn't allow any time there (except for seeing the ruins). Local benefits? The Amazon portion of our trip benefited local villages and supported conservation of primates. The time in the Sacred Valley definitely benefited local cooperatives and individuals. Overall rating? 9/10 (more)Nadia Al-Alawi
From £2000 excluding flights
Peru tour, Andes to Amazon
Memorable parts? On the Andes to Amazon I believe it was the Manu Wildlife Center. It was a charming facility with nice staff. Of course, the wildlife that we were fortunate enough to see was fabulous. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. Unfortunately during our time in Peru I picked up a nasty bacteria & viral infection. I was admitted into the hospital for 3 days / 2 nights which was during a portion of our arranged trip. We were not able to drive from Cusco through the cloud... (more)Christine Kinkel
From £1725 excluding flights

Overland tour to South America, Andes to the Amazon
Memorable parts? Hiking on a glacier, coming face to face with penguins in Punta Tomba, canyoning down a 40 metre waterfall, meeting all my new friends Tips? We had a great time, and made 21 new friends... but it is quite intense being with other people for such a long time... bring earplugs and ipod and a very very warm sleeping bag. Local benefits? Yes, we always took our rubbish with us, and were careful not to make a mess. Overall rating? Had an amazing time,... (more)Caroline Eccles
From £1785 excluding flights
Ecuador activity holiday
Excellent....Ecuador is a lovely country and well worth spending a week there before heading to the Galapagos. (more)Caroline Blagg
The most memorable part of the holiday was the wildlife - birds, dolphins, turtles, snakes, Jesus lizard...Ecuador is incredibly diverse, people genuinely interested, especially when "the only Gringo on the Bus!" and the operator is very efficient. (more)Phil Madden
From £1095 excluding flights
Inca Highlights, adventure tour
Most memorable were horse riding on the hills above Cusco, Cusco itself a beautiful city, the floating reed island and most certainly the time on the island with local family, I loved their way of life and their hospitality. (more)Ruth Stanley

Peru holiday, Inca Trail, Cusco & Lake Titicaca
Inca trail and Machu Picchu was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Mandy Risso
The Andean explorer train ride from Cusco to Lake Titicaca was an excellent way to see many aspects of Peru from the city suburbs through the slums then farming communities, through the middle of market towns and past the spectacular backdrop of the Andes. (more)Jane Lines
The most lasting memory will probably be our stay on Amantani Island on Lake TitiKaka. We stayed with a family without water and electricity and it was both enjoyable as well as being an eye opener. (more)Chris Simmons
From £2155 excluding flights
South America highlights holiday
Amazing! Completely unforgettable. Everything was nicely organized to the last detail (more)Kiana Askari
