It was an amazing trip.
We all thoroughly enjoyed it and were so impressed with Peru, the people we met and the variety of experiences. Not only did it live up to my expectations, it surpassed them.

The Santa Cruz – Ulta trek was good acclimatization training for Huayhuash and we were glad we did this trek first. The four young Americans with us were good company.
The high camp below Yanayaku Pass across from Contrahierbas and the pass itself, and the earlier close-up sight of Alpamayo from the base camp side were the scenic highlights for us on this short trek.
Huayhuash is in a different league scenically and physically. It is really spectacular. It’s also not for the beginner trekker. We really liked our own small trip and flexibility we had in altering things with Rodolfo’s suggestions and knowledge.
Rodolfo was absolutely terrific in every way. He is an excellent organiser and guide and very worldly in his knowledge and views.
So all in all we are very happy with AT and your on-ground operations in Peru. Again, Rodolfo was terrific in Huaraz and on the trail.

What you will find is Ecuadorian and international cuisine featuring a lot of fish, rice, vegetables …
