Seeing Machu Picchu for the first time from the sun gate on the 1 day Inca trail walking tour. Crossing the salt flats and altiplano in the 4x4 vehicles. Both were incredible! And the guides that we had for both were excellent, providing great commentary. (more)Karen Soppitt
I loved every minute of my tour, but seeing Machu Picchu with your own eyes takes some beating, I have been to 5 of the seven wonders of the world now, and Mach Picchu is the best. (more)Michael Dickerson

The tour was absolutely fantastic... (more)Ian Robertson

There were a lot of hares around that morning though... Otherwise there were so many amazing mountains and lakes to see (we were very lucky with the weather) particularly up the french valley and near Glacier Grey. Tips? Pack as light as possible as there are some days with a full pack on your... (more)Philip Tucker
