I was amazed at how smoothly everything went, having only had experience in developing countries of Africa and Asia backpacking which is usually quite fraught at airports and railways. We were collected and looked after with absolutely no fuss, refreshments and comforts sorted out all the way by courteous staff.
The trekking guides cooks and wranglers were all great. Food was varied tasty and much better than I'd expected. Tents and mats were fine. The Amazon lodge was really nice and the programme you put together kept us busy and entertained. The best bits were jumaring into the tree and kayaking, although it was all good.

Good bits - pretty much everything! We would happily recommend Andean Trails to anyone. Particular positives: Quick and straightforward immigration, pleasant, friendly efficient airport hotel, great rooms and lovely helpful staff. Really efficient and attentive guide (Juan Carlos) - really knew his stuff - history, landscape, activities and wildlife. Great days out (4 guides to 4 of us for river activities; driver and guide for others) - we particularly liked the driver (Walter) who was always where he needed to be and had usually got the awning up and picnic ready. Casa Andina PC at Sacred Valley was lovely - a great base and very comfortable. Really enjoyed the day hiking near Ollantaytambo and the guided exploration of the town. Train ride was spectacular and comfortable. Dawn at Machu Picchu was special.

How do I successfully achieve high altitude acclimatisation? This is the question that anyone travelling to the high altitude Andean areas of Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina or Colombia should be asking themselves. Successful acclimatisation will make a huge difference to your visit. It will mean you have a much safer and more enjoyable experience, whether trekking or climbing high Andean peaks. Over the past 25 years I have been up many 5,000 m plus peaks and trekked many fabulous routes in the Andes. I have suffered altitude headaches, lethargy, loss of appetite and certainly lack of breath when trying …
