The cruise was great - fantastic organisation, very professional staff and all very interesting. We can’t recommend the cruise highly enough but it was not full – about 90 on board out of a possible 120. We were tempted to go on to Antarctica!

It was a great experience in TRC!!! We saw plenty of Macaws and even got to hold some chicks, plus we had a great array of monkeys, capybaras, peccaries and caymans along the way too, not to mention the outstanding birdlife and amphibians, so I was overall very happy... it is a nice piece of forest and met and exceeded our expectations, and our guide Yuri did his best to meet our many demands... we went on several night walks, found some obscure invertebrates and snakes, got to see an anaconda even... some guys were luckier still and there were reports of a puma and a giant ant-eater, the second time only apparently being seen there at TRC, but we didn't feel like we didn't see enough! :) The boat trip was on itself a highlight, especially with the river being in full flood and navigating the rapids and the giant trees flowing down it was a real adventure! Back to work now, but I think I have a few strong contenders for the picture of the year ... not just macaws but also a harpy eagle landing on its nest! ;) Many thanks for making it possible and tailoring it to our rather demanding specifications!!! I will recommend Andean Trails to everyone and hope to have a chance to travel with you again!

We have just returned from a holiday of a lifetime. Everything went like clockwork - the scenery was stunning, the people friendly, the guides informative, excellent food and accommodation. We really can't decide what we enjoyed most - the Colca Canyon, Lake Titicaca, the Inca Trail, Amazon Jungle, the amazing train journey from Puno to Cusco, the Sacred Valley, free time in Arequipa and Cusco, the Lima Tour. Everything was equally incredible! Many thanks to you for the excellent organisation and please convey our thanks to all the reps. and guides who were all so helpful. We shall have no hesitation in recommending Andean Trails to anyone interested in a holiday in Peru.

My apologies for not replying to this email earlier...as you can imagine getting into the swing of things again after our trip has taken some time. Our experience in Peru was absolutely WONDERFUL!! From the places we stayed and visited to the food we ate to the people we met, it was wonderful. It is hard to pinpoint just one highlight of the trip, but our time on the Incan trail was certainly one of our favorites. It was truly amazing to see the sights and be able to experience this incredible part of Peru. We are so thankful that we upgraded our hike to the luxury trail because it allowed us to move at a slower pace than the other hikes and really enjoy our time. Our tour guide on trail was Jose' Silva and he was phenominal. His knowledge of the trail and the history as well as his love for his country was a joy...he also had a fantastic personality which made our time with him fun! The crew of porters who cared for us were amazing and kind men who made us very comfortable throughout the journey. We would most certainly do this again, and we would not change a thing. We also enjoyed our tour in Cusco. The company who toured us was great--they were well organized and it was obvious they knew what they were doing. When I have more time, I will send some photos of our time in Peru. We would most certainly work with Andean Trails again. We appreciate you taking the time to answer all of our questions while we were planning. We were very prepared as we followed your packing list exactly, and we think our trip was amazing due to your knowledge of the treks.

Everything about the trip was memorable but if I had to give something as a highlight it would be the macaws at the clay lick and an evening walk which the three of us did on the last evening in the forest and we sat and watched a couple of capybara on the beach and then walked back to the lodge in the semi darkness with lots of fireflies around. We will certainly use your company again when we next want to visit South America.

The boat selection and the cruise itinerary were outstanding. Both Amazon rainforest and Galapagos were excellent. Everything was perfectly organised. All parts of the trip fully in line with the itinerary. Local representatives were available at the meeting points, they organised the documentation, the transport, everything. Frankly speaking, I was a bit worried due to the lack of experience, but everything worked out well. No low points. Everything was excellent, the guides were very professional and helpful. Accomodation was also well selected, fully in line with the expectations. Next time, we will spend more time in Ecuador and visit other parts of this fascinating country.

The highlight was the boat (Flamingo) - it was very comfy, the crew and guides were excellent, as was the itinerary. Great food, service, comfort – loved it. There wasn’t really a low point, although at times it was chilly which we weren’t expecting.We had a really memorable holiday ... We would consider going back another time to do the northern itinerary.I found your help in organising it very useful...
