Wow!! What an amazing trip. There really was no particular highlight as every segment was so different and so amazing! Basically the highlight was the whole trip! Everything ran like clockwork. All the tour guides/drivers were on time and all transport was on time (flights, buses, taxis). Everyone was friendly and helpful and not once were we made to feel scared or unwelcome.
Thank you so much for all your help with organising this trip of a lifetime. I am so happy with my decision to choose Andean Trails as our guide for this five week trip and of course I will be recommending (have already actually) Andean Trails to family and friends.

Our guide (Santiago Mata) was a strong positive factor — knowledgable and very helpful, but not intrusive; flexible and anticipatory of any problems that might have been encountered.
Accommodations were fine — some more interesting than others, but all more than adequate. We spent relatively little time in the hotels and generally stayed in each only one night, so cannot give a critical evaluation, but overall, they were all fine. Food was also fine. We ate “local” foods as much as possible, generally with our guide’s advice, and had several very nice meals in the more urban areas. Overall organization worked our just fine for us.
