- What was the highlight of your holiday? Was there a low point?
The absolute highlight was the private Salkantay trek. We loved the trekking through the beautiful mountain landscape far away from the crowds, with absolutely amazing crew of the local agency: our great guide Elvis who strived to provide us with the real Andean hiking experience, and our fabulous cook Cezar who spoiled us with fantastic 3-course vegetarian meals!
- How would you rate accommodation/ food/ guides/ overall organisation?
Everything was very well organized, fully in line with the agreed program of our trip - all pick ups & guides were super professional and always on time. A special notion to all organizers in Cusco who were very attentive and taking great care of us, and to our guide in La Paz who offered us very interesting & refreshing city tour.
Food was great, our absolute highlights were ceviche and everything cooked by Cesar during our trek; as a special notion - we requested vegetarian meals and this request was fully observed in all places.
- Did you feel you benefitted the local communities?
Yes - in each place we had guides from local agencies who often took us to places where we could meet and support local artisans & people from local communities. We especially liked the visit at organic coffee farm run by the female cooperative in Peruvian cloud forest.
- What would you like to do differently next time?
Most of our trip was the private tour, with however few exceptions like the group visit at Lake Titicaca and semi-private drive in Uyuni; next time we would go 100% private tour that allows to fully tailor the trip to our interests and pace.
- Out of interest why did you choose the places you visited and why Andean Trails to organise your trip?
Peru & Bolivia were always on our bucket list and we’re very happy to finally make this dream come true. Landscapes with mountains & deserts, great history, as well as contemporary local culture & food are absolutely fantastic!
Andean Trails was recommended by Responsible Travel - we were looking for an agency that is expert in organizing trips to South America and also can offer a tailor-made private experience - our expectations were fully met, and our agent Kat helped with many recommendations that made our trip even better.
Thank you once more for organizing such great holidays!

It was a fantastic experience... for me personally it was so rewarding and a real personal achievement.
The highlight for me...perhaps that iconic initial view down to Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate, the whole trip was great.
All our guides were fantastic and passionate and knowledgeable and the porters are incredible.
I would definitely recommend Andean Trails and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and advice which was so very helpful and glad we took a pair of walking sticks each!
Definitely made me feel restless, a fab memory to share with my daughter and looking forward to the next trip

Larry and Gillian are coming to the end of their month of travelling with Andean Trails in Patagonia. We put together a tour designed to take them off-the-beaten-track – read the first instalment in their blog – covering Santiago and Aysen and remote border crossings. Once in Argentina, Gillian and Larry trekked to the base of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre, and took a day tour to Perito Moreno. They then set off for Torres del Paine on a self-guided trek. Their tour has ended with a few days in Ushuaia and a flight out from Buenos Aires. Check their progress below …
