Reviews for Inca trail & Amazon Rainforest holiday
Paul Brown review 28 Aug 2018
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?It is really hard to single out any one thing. There were a number of magical moments along the way - rounding a corner on Day 1 of the Moonstone Trek to see an eagle sitting perched, less than 100 feet away from us; climbing up through the snowline to reach the top of the highest pass on Day 2, and see the long view down on the other side; Machu Picchu (which is mind-blowing); ... and then the entire three days in the rainforest.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?Don't understimate the altitude: the two and a half days that the operator gives you in Cusco before starting the trek is really useful time to acclimatise (and easily filled with interesting things to see and do). I would take poles, even on the Moonstone Trek.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?Yes. Most of our guides/horsemen/cooks were locals; we were shown some of the best places to by locally made souvenirs; the operators commitment to the environment was apparent throughout the holiday.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?Just do it!
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
