1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Walking over Warmiwa˝uska and visiting the Uros on Lake Titicaca. Both experiences were amazing!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared for the physical aspect of the vacation as well as the high altitude.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, we had an amazing local guide - Wilmer who was very passionate about his cultural heritage as well as his community. He explained the importance of tourism especially after the pandemic. Everything we used on the treck was reusable and we were incoraged to use refills for our water bottles to reduce waste. Peru itself seems to try and separate waste (paper, plastic & other) by providing appropriate bins in tourist areas.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

For me, it was a one off, once in a lifetime experience. Just amazingly fantastic!
