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
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
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

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
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
Peru walking tour, Inca trail, Titicaca and Nazca
It was the most challenging holiday I have ever been on. I came back home with many wonderful memories. Our guide, Carlos Luchuga, contributed a great deal in the success of my holidays. (more)Teresa Trippenbach
Great...Hiking the Inca Trail to see Macchu Picchu at the end and the Nazca Lines were the most memorable parts. (more)Jack Bond
From £2549 - £2949 including UK 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
Adventure holiday in Peru
Memorable parts? The homestay with local families on Isla Amantani where we had to dress up in local costume for a fun evening of Peruvian dancing! Tips? Make sure you are fit enough for the trekking part Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? The combination of the magnificant scenery plus the amazing Inca ruins made it especially memorable. (more)Ruth Hindshaw
From £1916 - £2485 excluding flights

Memorable parts? Machu picchu and the Uyuni salt flats. Tips? Pack well, all types of clothing are necessary and be prepared for the unexpected. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Exciting. (more)Michelle Zammit
From £2499 - £2699 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 £1629 - £1769 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
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
Unforgettable experience. Cusco and Machu Picchu were the highlights. (more)Maitane Zubiaurre
From £1849 excluding 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 holiday, Tambopata & Inca Trail
Memorable parts? Visiting Machu Picchu - simply breathtaking! Tips? You can never have too many changes of clothes for the jungle... Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? A fantastic experience to see some wonderful sights. We learned so much and everyone was friendly and welcoming. (more)Claire Wood
From £1995 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 £2132 excluding flights
Peru holiday
Memorable parts? An option within our trip was to trek the little used Moonstone trail. What a good choice it was - amazing scenery, a real physical challenge (highest point 4850m and highest camp at 4300m)and peace and solitude - we didn't see another group during the 4 day trek. The altitude did make the going hard but our guide (Elias) was a great help and the views and sense of achievement upon reaching the highest point were tremendous. Camp 2 was a stunning spot, on a slightly raised... (more)Steve Braysher
From £3159 - £3849 including UK 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
From £537 excluding flights

From £640 excluding flights
Peru and Inca trail small group holiday
The Inca Trail was by far the highlight of the trip. One of the most amazing experiences of my life. (more)George Efstathopoulos
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! (more)Jo Herrold
From £1819 - £2290 excluding flights
Peru adventure holiday, Sacred Land of the Incas
Machu Picchu was wonderful but also really enjoyed the Uros Indianson the floating islands. (more)susan gough
The two most amazing pieces of the holiday were finally arriving at Machu Picchu and the truly beautiful lodge in the rain forest. (more)Maria Ingold
From £1800 - £2140 excluding flights
Inca Discovery holiday
Memorable parts? Hiking through the Peruvian jungle and feeling like you were discovering the Incan ruins yourself. Tips? "It's cold on the top of the mountain" means snow, even in March (summer). The weather was colder and wetter than I anticipated. Local benefits? We benefited the porters who were carrying our luggage, and were pretty environmentally friendly. I wasn't sure how to take the very aggressive salespeople- I think it's better to sell something than to just... (more)Melissa Mundo
From £899 - £999 excluding flights
Inca trail holiday, Peru
Memorable parts? Leaving. Tips? Do not book with this operator. Local benefits? Overall rating? I would never book with this operator again. Could you pick worse hotels if you tried? (more)Antoine Taridif
