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

My favourite part of the vacation was sailing down the Amazon river for the first time - I got goosebumps! However, generally, the best thing about the trip was the people - Joel, our guide on the Inca trail was very knowledgeable (more knowledgeable than the museums about the history of Machu Picchu!); the cooks William and Abel provided food so delicious that we ate like kings in the mountains, and the Group 3 porters were all lovely and made the trip such a success. Thanks go to them - they were the best part of the vacation. Joel deserves every success and should definitely be voted back in the top 5 guides in Peru.

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

Get stuck in! You'll only get out what you put in. Make friends and get your hands dirty.

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

Yes - although I think that there could be more done to help local people (perhaps schools in the different farming areas near Puerto Maldonado could be set up with some of the profits), I generally felt that the vacation was beneficial to local people and was sustainably organised.

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

One of the best things I've ever done in my life. I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about doing it.
