I had to write to say, thank you for organising a terrific holiday for us! The scenery and the people were wonderful! The scenery in Peru was just as stunning. However....the people surpassed the scenery!!! Manuel was our guide....he was fantastic and his enthusiasm for his country/people/culture was palpable! The porters was SO impressive and did everything they could to ensure we had a great trip! The Huchuy Qosqo trek....was amazing and the homestay with Wilma and Demicio touched all our hearts!!! They welcomed us into their home and we had such a lovely night with was a privilege! I’d recommend this to anyone going! Thank you again Tom! We’ll certainly be recommending ye!!! Already have!

High points: the trekking, stunning landscapes, the immersion of the jungle. Lovely people. No low point.!! Accommodation/ food/ guides/ overall organisation - all excellent. Guide and porters especially worth a mention. Tom gave us very good advice on the Inca Trail, i.e. to run it out of sync with the bigger groups. So no big crowds.
