We were very sorry to read your comments about your holiday with us.

We are very keen to be able to investigate your concerns, however your review does not outline your specific issues. We would be very interested to know these and would be grateful if you could send any further comments to our customer service team.

In the meantime we have gone through to our team in South East Asia and ask that they review the hotels used on your trip to try to identify any problems.

Thank you for sending through your feedback. I hope to hear from you in due course.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

In the hotels, we encourage passengers to reuse towels and sheets to conserve water and reduce the consumption of detergent.

On the trail, we promote use of reusable canteens for water and give passengers a chance to purchase at the beginning of the trip. All proceeds from these purchases support our foundation's many projects in the Sacred Valley region. We also provide passengers with a responsible travel bag and encourage them to refuse plastic while on the trail. Our porters and cooks use biodegradable soap while camping to minimize the harmful impact of chemicals on the environment.

People

This trip gives you plenty of opportunities to get to know the culture and vibrant history of Latin America. There are numerous chances for local interaction, including a visit to a local community in the heart of the Sacred Valley as well sharing conversations with your porters while on the trail. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn from a friendly local who strikes up a conversation during your journey.

All hotels on this trip are locally owned, as we try to contribute as much as possible to the local communities.

Local guides are employed to help explain the cultural differences and the historically significant places that we visit. Your guide will be able to direct you to many local eateries throughout the trip, helping you discover real local fare at real local prices (and probably helping you learn some Spanish at the same time). All travellers are encouraged to explore with the group and on their own, learn a few words of the language and interact with the locals as much as possible. We continuously monitor the development of our local porters and support them professionally in their goal to become a trip leader.

There are plenty of opportunities to support local merchants in the markets and stalls that we pass along the way. We can purchase traditional handicrafts from local artisans and learn more about the importance of preserving these crafts.
