Small group adventure vacation

Whether you are traveling alone or with friends/family its good value, and a great way to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is plenty of free time to explore at your own pace. This trip will appeal to travelers of all ages who enjoy meeting new people as well as seeing new places.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Inca Highlights, adventure tour

Environment

Local guides will lend their expertise to the journey, including the ecological, historical background and cultural significance of the places we visit. Our Inca Trail Porters policy protects the rights and conditions of porters and is strictly enforced.

We have developed a policy on porters in Peru, pledging that all porters hired on the Inca Trail will have the same meals as clients hiking the trail; they will have access to tents; should they fall sick while hiking they will be evacuated; all gear must be weighed prior to trekking to ensure it is not too heavy; and an enforced weight limit of 5kg for each passenger is set.

Additionally we encourage our travelers to tip porters that they feel have provided excellent service as a way of supplementing their income. When we are in Aguas Calientes after Machu Picchu there is time to wander the markets found there where we encourage buying local handicrafts and gifts supporting the community.

For other activities we choose only the best trained guides, who will help you to appreciate the importance of respecting the environment of these heritage sites and understand the conservation efforts being undertaken in various areas.

Your entrance fees will help to conserve and preserve heritage sites, such as ancient ruins, while entrance fees at national parks support the conservation efforts of forest and native animal and bird species.

Furthermore, all travelers are asked to adhere to responsible travel practises while on tour which includes ensuring all lights, electricity and air conditioning is switched off when leaving hotel rooms, requesting that towels are not changed everyday unless necessary and leaving behind no litter or other waste while on excursions.

Community

We will visit many local shopping districts and markets along the way, giving you plenty of opportunity to support local merchants. We would encourage you to purchase traditional handicrafts from local artisans rather than mass produced goods from chain stores, as you will learn more about the skill involved in the production, while also supporting the craft itself.

We visit the Witches Market in La Paz where passengers are able to purchase handmade handicrafts from the local women in traditional dress as well as trying out their Spanish skills when bartering! When we visit Lake Titicaca you can also support the local merchants by purchasing traditional gifts made by the Amantani cultures found there.

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


Horse riding on the hills above Cusco, Cusco itself a beautiful city, the floating reed island and most certainly the time on the island with local family, I loved their way of life and their hospitality.

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


Check that you have booked the right tour for you, I found later while on the tour I could have been more organised and utilised my time better had I have booked more through the tour operator than trying to go it alone-which I did before and after the tour and it wasn't easy. I hadn't discussed the various possibilities fully with the London tour office.

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


Clearly the time we spent on the reed islands and on the island with local families benefited the locals. And any money spent in the local economy would be advantageous. The slow boat across Lake Titicarca certainly didn't impact on the environment; I have to say I would have liked it to go somewhat faster. I would have preferred to have stayed in more small hotels run by families or stay more often in small guest houses or people's homes.

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


Excellent. The organisation of accommodation, timing of transport and connection of transport was perfect. I was very impressed. A great mix of culture, sigh seeing and interaction. The guides were tremendous. One in particular, forgive the spelling, Ernan, a young man of 27 whose home is Cusco. I have been to many places, joined many tours and he is by far the best guide I have ever met!

Swimming in the Amazon, learning about the jungle and meeting a Shaman, Salsa dancing in Cusco, staying with a local family in Armanti and folk dancing to traditional music, the colours, textiles and crafts, music, food and drink (I'm vegetarian and it was all incredible and fresh), breathtaking scenery, spiritual mythology, Inca ruins, learning about different ways of life and meeting fantastic people!

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


Book it and enjoy! Be prepared for an adventure...

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


Yes - it was great having local guides who had a good understanding of the local ways of life.

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


10/10. Trip of a lifetime!

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


Cusco and Machu Picchu.

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


Take it easy for the altitude, use ONLY potable water even to brush your teeth.

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


It definitely benefited local people as they make money from tourism, not so sure about the environment....especially in Machu Picchu.

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


Unforgettable experience.
