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

Horse riding on the hills above Cusco, Cusco itself a beautiful city, the floating reed island and most certainly the time on the island with local family, I loved their way of life and their hospitality.

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

Check that you have booked the right tour for you, I found later while on the tour I could have been more organised and utilised my time better had I have booked more through the tour operator than trying to go it alone-which I did before and after the tour and it wasn't easy. I hadn't discussed the various possibilities fully with the London tour office.

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

Clearly the time we spent on the reed islands and on the island with local families benefited the locals. And any money spent in the local economy would be advantageous. The slow boat across Lake Titicarca certainly didn't impact on the environment; I have to say I would have liked it to go somewhat faster. I would have preferred to have stayed in more small hotels run by families or stay more often in small guest houses or people's homes.

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

Excellent. The organisation of accommodation, timing of transport and connection of transport was perfect. I was very impressed. A great mix of culture, sigh seeing and interaction. The guides were tremendous. One in particular, forgive the spelling, Ernan, a young man of 27 whose home is Cusco. I have been to many places, joined many tours and he is by far the best guide I have ever met!

Swimming in the Amazon, learning about the jungle and meeting a Shaman, Salsa dancing in Cusco, staying with a local family in Armanti and folk dancing to traditional music, the colours, textiles and crafts, music, food and drink (I'm vegetarian and it was all incredible and fresh), breathtaking scenery, spiritual mythology, Inca ruins, learning about different ways of life and meeting fantastic people!
