Holiday in Peru & Inca Trail
As each day passed it became my favourite day so far! The Inca Trail of course and the island home stay have to be my top two. The holiday was made all the more memorable because of the great group we were travelling with and of course our guide Dante. (more)Helen Leng
Sitting on top of WaynaPicchu looking at the cloud forest and mountains was the highlight. (more)Joanna Tupper
Walking the Inca Trail was the hardest thing I have ever done but the exhilaration and euphoria of the whole group as we walked through the Sun Gate is something money cannot buy and a memory that will last forever. (more)Christine Ingham
From £3095 - £3679 including UK 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

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 £2395 - £2635 excluding flights
Quito to La Paz overland tour
Memorable parts? Trekking the Inca trail was fantastic, it exceeded all my expectations. The porters were superhuman and the tour leaders superb. It is the best experience I have had so far. Tips? Listen to the safety tips of your tour leaders regarding valuables. Things did go missing on public transport with some of my travelling buddies. Local benefits? We visited local communities and bought direct from them. Stayed with families to experience their daily life. Overall... (more)Yuetmui Chung

South America tour, coast to coast
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
There were so many memorable parts! - Rio, Cusco, Iguacu falls, Machu Picchu, the rainforest, etc. Overall a brilliant cross section of South American sights and culture. (more)Brian Wright
From £0 including UK 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

From £1790 - £1990 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 £2799 - £3099 including UK flights
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
Peru & Inca trail small group tour
Memorable parts? Visiting the Amazon Jungle was the 'unmissable' part! A unique environment to experience - the river, the heat and humidity, the giant trees and canopy, the sounds of the jungle; seeing animals, birds, a cayman and catching piranhas! Our guides were experienced, caring and very knowledgeable; the lodge-accommodation (Posada Amazonia) perfect for this setting. Tips? Don't bother to take any snack food from the UK. We were very well fed throughout and even on the trek... (more)Jo Herrold
From £1590 - £1740 excluding flights
Peru Amazon Rainforest family adventure
Memorable parts? Machu Picchu was absolutely incredible. It lived up to our expectations and exceeded them in every way. Tips? Check the weather before you go. Different regions have very different temperatures and dressy clothes are not needed anywhere - even at very nice restaurants it seems. Order your soles before you go and have enough on hand for tips, purchases, meals, etc. We'd recommend $500 USD. Local benefits? We feel our holiday benefited local people in the... (more)Dee bertino

Trek to Machu Picchu
Most memorable? Hard to choose. Obviously, the magnificent view of Machu Picchu, as we arrived, but the welcome we had from the people in the villages was wonderful. (more)Karen Waring
From the trekking to actually standing and looking at Machu Picchu was so memorable. Being on the top of Wayna Picchu will be something I shall never forget! (more)Trudi Clark
From £2294 including UK flights
Highlights of Peru holiday
Memorable parts? Arriving to the Sun Gate at 6am after the Inca trail...and seeing the clouds moving away and revealing Machu Picchu! The homestay in the peninsula of Lake Titicaca was also the most amazing experience as was the bus ride from Puno to La Paz... those views of the Lake Titicaca were so beautiful, both on Peruvian and Bolivian side! Also riding the Worlds most dangerous road in Bolivia was super!!! Tips? Remember that Peru and Bolivia are developing countries and hygiene... (more)Kristiina Puusaari-Sheahan
From £1999 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 £3209 - £3639 including UK flights
Andes overland journey, Atacama desert to Machu Picchu
Memorable parts? Visiting Machu Picchu. Tips? Be prepared for the effects of altitude. We didn't get altitude sickness but suffered from tiredness, headaches and shortness of breath, especially when walking up hills. You need to give yourself longer to do things requiring physical effort. Local benefits? Yes, all guides, drivers and hotel staff were locals and we stayed with a local family on Lake Titicaca. There was an emphasis on conservation and reducing environmental... (more)Dianne Margaret Reidy

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
Swimming in the Amazon, learning about the jungle and meeting a Shaman, Salsa dancing in Cusco, staying with a local family in Armanti and folk dancing to traditional music, the colours, textiles and crafts, music, food and drink (more)Amanda Whittington

From £1719 excluding flights
South America overland expedition, Andino
Memorable parts? Uyuni Salt Flats as it was amazing and of course Machu Pichu... despite climbing and barely seeing it from the Sun Gate, the clouds eventually lifted and we were able to get some gorgeous photos one of which I have attached. I also loved the town of Cuzco and Punta Sal in Peru. Tips? On this trip you would meet loads of travellers which I thought was good as you were able to share experiences and learn about people and their life choices! The most important thing... (more)Roxanne Glaud
From £3589 excluding flights
Hiking the Inca Trail in Peru
The most memorable part was trekking to 4215 meters high along the Inca Trail and watching the sunrise over Machu Picchu while at the Sungate. (more)Glenn Beck
As we came out of our dinner tent on the second night we all gasped, I saw what was the most beautiful sight I have ever seen...5* I really cannot rate anything higher - we were seriously impressed by everything! (more)Emily van der Waals
Amazon, Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca and of course the Inca Trail were all amazing places...The country and people are amazing, the scenery breath taking (more)Julia Radtke
From US $750 excluding flights
Lake Titicaca & Peru highlights holiday
Memorable parts? Being amongst high Andes mountains and half uncovered Inca ruins without any other tourists around, but with good friendly helpful guide and other staff to look after us. We were able to interact with locals in a way quite different from that occurring in areas over run by tourists. Tips? Take warm clothes- it was freezing at night at altitude. Definitely include an Amazon trip as a good contrast to the mountains. Donít buy hats- there are loads of hats, ponchos... (more)David Rampersad
From US $2825 excluding flights
Lima to La Paz tours, Inca adventure
The human, non-commercial elements were as rewarding as the fixed features like Machu Picchu, Islas Ballestas, Nazca, Titicaca; the chance to explore, interact, share a joke, have fun, bargain, to understand the frustrations and limitations, to take part in local living, if only briefly (more)Weng Yee
Most memorable? The incredible scenery over the Andean mountaintop passes. (more)Sean Mcardell
Macchu Picchu was lost in a cloud but as it cleared it was a magical experience and the pain of the trek eased into a sense of achievement. (more)Tracey Lawrence
From £1671 - £2025 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 tour
Memorable parts? The satisfaction of reaching Dead Woman's Pass on the second day of the trail. Tips? Definitely spend 3 nights in Cusco before the trail to acclimatise to the altitude. You never know how much it will affect you and it could ruin your trip. It is not worth the risk and it does not matter how fit you are. Drink plenty of coca tea to help too. Local benefits? The guides and porters would have benefited from our holiday, but I get the impression that the porters... (more)Nick Lewis
From £550 excluding flights
Inca Trail & Amazon holidays
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

Very good, lots of diversity. Hiking through the Andes was most memorable. (more)Mona Donovan
From £1145 including domestic flights only
Peru small group holiday, Lima to Cuzco
Memorable parts? Meeting local artisans and craftspeople, seeing the sights of the city of Cusco and especially Machu Picchu! Tips? Learn a few phrases in Spanish for those times when you're on your own exploring the area. If paying locals for photographs (as seems to be extremely prevalent in the areas where tourists flock), be sure to work out the price and pay ahead of time to avoid any potential problems or misunderstandings. Local benefits? Yes- I bought a number of things... (more)Jennifer Janviere
From £915 - £1170 excluding flights
Lima to Santiago overland holiday
