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

The hospitality of the hotel staff and guides. The Amazon jungle trips. And Heather's constant monitoring even over the Christmas week end….

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

On arrival at Lima, take an immediate connection to Cusco, rather than spend half a night in Lima. Do Pisac on the way back from Ollantaytambo to Cusco, rather than as part of the Sacred valley tour. There is no baggage restriction on luggage on the boat from PEM to the Inketarra Resort. Ensure the guides speak good English. Remember that even water is charged for in "all inclusive AP rates". Very European, un American practice.

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

Yes, nice to meet NO EXPATS, meaning every service was provided by locals. The bus from Aguas Caliente to Machu Pichu reduced the number of vehicles that would otherwise make that round trip. The few resorts approved in the Amazon forest results in higher rates, but must be good for the environment.

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

Very Good - a "4" on a scale of 1 to 5..

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

Peru is a wonderful destination with so much more to offer than just the iconic Machu Picchu - all thoroughly recommended.

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

As we did, do the circuit in an anti-clockwise direction, so that you finish up with Macchu Pichu as the jewel in the crown, but don't miss out Arequipa and Colca Canyon.

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

In a relatively poor country where tourism is so important to the economy, every aspect of such a trip benefits the people somehow - even paying a child to take their photograph is a valuable contribution. Likewise, tourism as a source of income, by its very need, supports conservation of the tourist sights. Balancing this need with the reduction in environmental impact is a conundrum that Peru seems more aware of than a number of other countries we have visited. We wish them well in their efforts.

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

A first rate and memorable experience made to run like clockwork by the efforts of the team at the Holiday providers.
