“My wife and I loved this trip in South America with many breathtaking landscapes on the way. The tours included were excellent and the guides very informative. We loved the tour to the Uros floating island and the visit to the community near the lake Titicaca. Highly recommended.”

“The trek was awesome! The scenery is wonderful and although the trek is difficult, you are totally rewarded with the beautiful views and especially the Machu Picchu site. Our guide was excellent and told us many stories about the Inca culture.”

“The four of us did the W trek on our own. We saw a lot of people with a guide, but also plenty of solo hikers like ourselves. Personally, I don't think a guide is necessary, the trail is well marked. We went in the summer and it was great becuase the days were long and we were able to take our time. ”
