Trek on ancient Inca trail (no permits needed) on a path that connected Cusco to Machu Picchu.
Full, guided tour of Machu Picchu after this wonderful, off-the-beaten-path trek.
The walk lasted four days, a time to get lost among the beautiful scenery and camp two nights under the incredible starry nights in a beautiful, peaceful and secluded parts of the world.
There are many different ways to reach Machu Picchu. Undoubtedly, this is route is a great visual experience through unexplored lands – one I loved.

Highlights - everything really but probably Isabela.
The island was so beautiful, lots of areas to explore on your own - the walk to Muro de las Lagrimas, lagoons, beach, watching the pelicans diving for fish around sunset. Los Tuneles was probably our favourite snorkelling trip. Kicker Rock would be a close second, we have some fantastic footage of hammerheads.
All the breakfasts were fresh and enjoyable as were the lunches provided on the trips - especially the ceviche on Los Tuneles tour. Andrea, our main contact was great always on time, very friendly, lots of useful information. Overall organisation was excellent - no problems.
Thanks again Tom - it was worth the wait!!

To be honest I don't have the words to describe the Galapagos. Breathtaking!!
Thank you so much for the excellent organisation, planning and support. The flights, boat, crew, guides, food and itinerary were excellent and worked really well. The wildlife was simply amazing and the weather perfect.
No low point. Highlight - everything, but in particular seeing a part of our planet that has not been ravaged by humans.
We wished to see as much of the Galapagos as possible and the boat made this possible. We chose Andean Trails because they responded very quickly and efficiently to our original request. Tom has been excellent and we would highly recommend Andean Trails again.
