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.

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.

The high points included reaching the tops of the volcanoes (pun not intended), but also included ice climbing during the glacier school. The Tambopaxi hostel was excellent (with very friendly staff), as was the hotel in Riobamba. We thought Ramiro is an excellent guide and engages well with the clients. We felt very looked after in the refuge on Cayambe and felt we benefitted the local communities.

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.

The guides were quite simply outstanding. They really made the trip a wonderful experience. I felt they were absolutely part of the team and there was no ‘client/guide’ barrier whatsoever. Professional and diligent throughout, and always good humoured and practical.

"We had a number of highlights: seeing pumas in Torres del Paine- the pumas were a bit of a distance away and had their backs to us for most of the sighting! ; the Perito Moreno glacier; the stunning scenery; the Tango show in Buenos Aires; spending time in Rio. "The whole trip ran like clockwork! Every guide was ready and waiting for us at the airport as arranged and were knowledgeable and friendly. They made every effort to enable us to have vegetarian food wherever possible. "The travel companies in each country were very diligent and called us on arrival to confirm arrangements, including copies of vouchers and any other information we needed, which was very helpful. "Overall, the whole trip was extremely well-organised and delivered from both the UK and South American sides. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the pre-booked activities and were particularly impressed with Carola, our guide in Puerto Natales, who was both knowledgeable and friendly."

It was a great holiday, very well organised, a truly excellent tour leader (Lucia Herrera, one of the best ever. Nothing was too much trouble, she worked so hard and always remained cheerful) and to top it all we had the most amazing weather. It was very warm and sunny in Ushuaia, and the Beagle Channel was like a millpond! The flights all worked out really well, so got home with no delays, change of airports or anything. Thank you so much for your help with booking these – they couldn’t have been better. Difficult to pick out one particular highlight as we had amazing views of Fitzroy, Paine, and Ushuaia. The whole trip was wonderful, but if there has to be one particular highlight, I would probably select the morning spent on the Beagle Channel. The light was amazing, and we saw penguins swimming, albatross feeding on sardine shoals, sea lions basking on rocks and numerous gulls and cormorants. But then sitting just below the Torres del Paine with a clear view all round was also amazing. I would rate the organisation and the food as excellent – easily the best I have had on a trek. The food was both good to eat and plentiful. The cook at the second camp was particularly good and his baked salmon dish was the best meal of the trip – better than anything the restaurants produced. The first two guides Juan Pablo and Juan (2) were both very good. The hostel accommodation was fine, particularly the hostel in El Chalten which was the best of all. On the whole, the camps were fine and the large dining tents were great. I hope we benefitted local communities. We ate in local restaurants and visited all the National Parks. I think all the food was locally sourced and it was very interesting to stay in the Estancia in Tierra del Fuego. I saw and did everything I had wanted to do in the time.
