review 4 Aug 2010

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

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.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

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 and other warm things like fleeces cheaper than home and they make good souvenirs.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes. The trekking operators packed everything in and out, used gas rather than local wood to cook and I saw them politely paying locals for services. There was a good relationship. We also were able to buy directly from local individuals rather than larger shops.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Really enjoyable, very well organised, much higher standard of transport, guiding and food than I had expected.
