Galapagos adventure holiday
From
£3,418
excluding flights
So much to list! I think snorkelling with the turtles on Galapagos and having humming birds at my finger tools feeding from a nectar pot was the most memorable. Unbelievably fantastic! All enhanced by the fantastic guides we had in Quito, Galapagos and Bella Vista Cloud forest! (more)Chris Goldthorp

Bolivia and Peru tour
From
£2,684

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
Family teenager holiday in Peru
From
£2,772
including UK flights
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

We had a fantastic group of people on board so I had a great time although traveling solo. I was very pleased with the itinerary of the cruise which really made the most of the days. During the week we got to see practically everything which honestly made it feel well worth the investment. (more)Sari Sironen

Galapagos activity & wildlife holiday, land based
From
£4,240
excluding flights
Memorable parts? All of it ! Surpassed expectations. Micromanagement by competent guides impressive. Just one guide did not speak adequate English ( on a boat tour ) Tips? Do not even clean teeth using local water. Sea water can be quite cold ( especially at Kicker Rock). Wet suit hire is cheap and advisable for some Good mosquito prophylaxis essential Local benefits? Cannot really comment - I fear for the Galapagos with plans to increase tourism dramatically (200,000 - 500,000... (more)Elizabeth Powell-Brett

From
£1,650
excluding flights
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

Bolivia adventure holiday
From
£909
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Visiting the salt flats - they were beautiful, and totally original. A real experience! Tips? Insist that your tour leader comes with you on the 3 day tour of the Uyuni 4x4 tour - the drivers are completely irresponsible (drinking beer at breakfast, driving dangerously, driving the vehicles when they are not roadworthy), and rude (not listening to the group's concerns regarding the above, and threatening to leave people stranded in the middle of the tour), that it...

Bolivia & Amazon jungle holiday
From
£1,585
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I loved the Bolivian salt flats which were astonishing (although shockingly cold at night), and the pampass tour, especially swimming in the river and having the dolphins come up and nuzzle me! Tips? Bring extra warm clothes for overnight sleeping on salt flats - there is no heating and although the salt hotel is not too cold, the 2nd night is really really cold. If you're flying direct into La Paz give yourself 1-2 days to aclimatise (take it slowly). I arrived... (more)Paul Brant
Peru family adventure holiday
From
£1,605
excluding flights
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
£1,150

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

From
£1,995

The contrasts in landscape, flora, fauna, people, buildings, wealth, weather, food, transport and so forth were just extraordinary in the true sense of the word in the Galapagos. So glad we did such a variety of activities too and stayed on land to have the flexibility to do our own thing at other times. (more)Doug Cramond
The SEA LIONS are great encounters. Especially on San Cristobal Island being such close proximity with them on beaches is almost unheard of anywhere else in the world! That is a real specialty of the trip! (more)Anni Jancsek
Highlights of Peru holiday
From
£1,955
excluding flights
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

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
