Reviews for Peru and Inca Trail small group tour


review 9 Apr 2014

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

It is hard to pick one, as all the parts were really wonderful. I suppose the trip to Machu Picchu stands out just because it is such an iconic place, but the rainforest, the desert, lake Titicaca, Cusco, Colcha Canyon, were all brilliant places to visit. A lot of the success of the trip was down to Ricardo our wonderful Peruvian guide, who was not just a guide but became a lovely friend.

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

Take the altitude sickness possibility seriously. It affects some people, but some get away with no effect, just be careful. Be prepared for imperfection, these trips require you to go with the flow, put up with things when they are not quite right, it is that sort of country, and you need stamina.

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

The use of local people, local facilities, and avoiding using global companies will definitely benefit local communities. I am less convinced about the impact on the environment and conversation being of benefit. It is the age long dilemma of the costs versus benefits of tourism, at least this way the impact is softer and more considerate.

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

One of the best I have had, a truly wonderful experience.
