"Faultless. The accomodation varied from good to superb. The food was certainly a surprise and was of a much higher standard than expected. The guides were both top class and the overall organisation was exemplary. Could not be any better, from intial conversations, which were many, to the booking process, the pre takeoff information and all aspects within the Peru interior. Tom provided a service way beyond that expected from a travel company. In fact to expand on this, he was so helpful many years ago when we originally looked into travelling to Peru that i was determined that should we take the plunge then it would be through Tom. Much appreciated indeed."

It was an amazing trip. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and were so impressed with Peru, the people we met and the variety of experiences. Not only did it live up to my expectations, it surpassed them. I was afraid I might be disappointed with the Inca Trail and Macchu Picchu because I've wanted to go there for as long as I can remember but that was a dream come true. The second day there when we climbed Huana Picchu and then had time to wander the site at our leisure was really magical. Finding the Inca Bridge was a bonus and there was hardly anyone else there too!

Communication through email was excellent. Questions were always answered right away. Great service! Wonderful tour and excellent tour guide. Lots of highlights, Uyuni and trek were probably our favourite. Also we were lucky to get Julia as our guide. She did an excellent job.

We both felt our South America holiday was the highlight of 2012, and it was easy to see why people travel halfway across the world to see the sights of Peru and Ecuador. Our highlight overall was probably the Galapagos cruise and we never guessed how fascinated we’d become by the landscapes, the island and sea animal life, and the history of the islands. However the Inca Trail was also every bit as good as we expected; we were very glad we decided to take the extra day in Macchu Picchu as there really was all too much to take in on the first day and the weather was much better on the second. From an organisational point of view, it was such a relief that everything worked; as we were trying to pack so much in to a tight timescale it seemed risky that had anything gone wrong it could have been difficult to get back on track. We felt in safe hands throughout. In particular Jesus in Cusco was a very good host and made us feel welcome straight away. All the information given out beforehand was very comprehensive and I can’t think of anything on the ‘we wish we’d known that before leaving’ list.

Everything worked perfectly: folk were there to pick me up when they should have, lodges were great, food included was delicious, flights all worked and were on time, the list of "things to bring" was accurate (and welcome), the Inca Trek was strenuous but spectacular, the Amazon was fantastic (that eco lodge was so unusual, but so worthwhile)... all in all, nothing went wrong and everything went just right. What a pleasure - a million thanks to you (and Tom) and Andean Trails. I'm happy to endorse you guys any day of the week and of course, will never stray further than your website for any future journeys to that part of the world. Cheers and thanks again.

The trip was wonderful. Thank you for all of your help. The guides were wonderful, especially Jesus in Cusco. He took my son and husband to a football match and really went above and beyond to make sure everyone had a great time. You organized a great trip for us and we enjoyed the beautiful country and the friendly people. We would definitely recommend you and have already forwarded your information to a friend who is planning on hiking the Inca Trail with his wife for their tenth anniversary. Thank you again for everything.

We LOVED the trek. It was hard, beautiful, cultural and well organized. Our whole family enjoyed the 3 other trekkers in our group and the staff was great including cook, guide, horsemen and other help. Yamil, our English speaking Peruvian guide did a very good job and our cook made a birthday cake for a Scottish woman in our party! Our guide showed us the school that is supported by the income from the treks. They apparently provide a yearly salary for one of the two teachers at the school. This seems fantastic. We camped in two villages and it didn't feel too intrusive since our group was small and no other groups were seen trekking.

Our holiday was FANTASTIC, definitely lived up to all my expectations. Where to start? Peru was great, really enjoyed visiting the ruins, exploring the Sacred Valley and resting in the tranquil surroundings of the Green House. We went to Pisac, Moray, Maras and Salinas (loved the salt pans) and also wandered round Ollantaytambo before getting the train. Our Machu Picchu visit was really well organised and the guide was first class. It was a fantastic experience and it was great watching the ruins and the mountains emerging from the clouds as the sun came up. Our only regret was that we didn’t spend any time in Cuzco as it is a lovely city and we would like to have explored. The hotel, Casa San Blas, was also really nice.
