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

Visiting the less touristy areas of Peru - Kuelap, Gocta, Revash and Leymabamba. Going deep into the Amazon Rainforest and learning more about this important ecosystem. The sheer diversity of Peru.

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

Peru is huge, distances between attractions are large and travel can take big chunks out of your vacation. Watch out for altitude sickness, there is medication you can take and itís worth discussing with your GP before leaving home.

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

I hope that the money we spent in country will benefit local people. The rainforest visit certainly supported conservation efforts and the learning from that visit will allow us to modify some of our behaviours now we are back home, for example we will stop eating beef unless it is UK reared.

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

Fantastic but hard work. We saw lots of Peru and really enjoyed all of the places we visited but to do that we were up early every morning and traveling most days. Lots to see and do, good food, lovely people, and everything very smoothly organised.

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

Multiple events throughout the entire Galapagos and Peru vacation: snorkelling with Sea Iguanas, snorkelling into a cave where white tipped sharks were sleeping, a Llama selfie along the classic Inca Trail, sleeping in pods on the side of Sacred Valley, condors at Colca Valley

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

Get walking ahead of the trail. Walking sticks are a must. Bring some music for the trip.

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

Yes - The thing I like about responsible travel is that I always meet the guides and find they are all locals. Also, the hotels we stay in notably are trying to make a reduced impact on the environment with reduced plastic, encouraging avoidance of a daily clean set of towels/bedding etc.

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

Bucket list vacation, bucket list memories.
