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

The Inca Trail was by far the highlight of the trip. One of the most amazing experiences of my life.

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

Make sure you read the Q&A of what to take with you for the Inca Trail

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

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

Great vacation - only critisism would be the accomodation in Cusco (Pascana) which I thought was below average, with poorly working showers, limited hot water and smelly beds.

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

Visiting the Amazon Jungle was the 'unmissable' part! A unique environment to experience - the river, the heat and humidity, the giant trees and canopy, the sounds of the jungle; seeing animals, birds, a cayman and catching piranhas! Our guides were experienced, caring and very knowledgeable; the lodge-accommodation (Posada Amazonia) perfect for this setting.

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

Don't bother to take any snack food from the UK. We were very well fed throughout and even on the trek didn't need any extras. Just buy the odd snacks you might want when you are there - better for the local economy and less weight to carry yourself!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes. We used a lot of local transport (by road, water and air), ate at restaurants rather than hotels, had many opportunities to buy local, hand-made crafts and were encouraged to tip our guides, etc. The small group of 9 meant it didn't feel too 'touristy'.

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

Excellent. Great variety; Amazon Jungle, being at altitude in the Andes Mountains; treking to 4800 metres; visiting ancient civilisations at Machu Picchu and Tiwanaku; climbing Wayna Picchu, visiting the island people of Lake Titicaca; the cities of Lima, Cusco and La Paz.
