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

I fell in love with Patagonia and in particular our time in Torres del Paine. It's absolutely stunning!

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

Don't expect to have much free time for independent exploring, it's an action packed itinerary.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes

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

This was my first trip to South America and going solo I was a little nervous. It was great to be part of a group and explore Chile together. Even though the itinerary is action packed everything is organised for you so long travel days are stress free. This trip allows you to experience the diversity of Chile from the deserts to the lakes and mountains. It's a great adventure! I particularly enjoyed our time in Atacama at valley of the moon and the optional stargazing evening. We also had the chance to go to the hot springs which were so peaceful. My favourite part of the trip was Torres del Paine, it's such a beautiful setting and feels so remote.

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

Atacama Desert & Patagonia - these were quite stunning.

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

The holiday was quite expensive and I had to share a room with a fellow traveller. I was disappointed that the tour operator made no attempt to advise if the fellow traveller had any habits such as snoring that would keep you awake most nights. Having discussed this with the holiday rep there was nothing that could be done, about this. Taking into account the cost of the holiday. I feel that the tour operator have a responsibility to highlight situations like this to their customers so that a solution can be found before embarking on the holiday. If our tour operator can not do this then I would not hesitate to use another travel company.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes we stopped in local hotels and dinned in local restaurants.

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

The country was great and the scenery was quite spectacular for this I would give a 4 or 5 star rating. However, the lack of sleep for the reasons stated in 2 above and the fact the tour operator could not find this out from a polite questionare before the holiday has reduced my overall rating to a 2 or 3 star.
