“We had an awesome trip and the team was great. The trek was quite difficult but we did it at our own pace and could stop when we were tired. We were quite exhausted but we were then rewarded by the beautiful views. The guide was very supportive and knowledgeable. It was a great trip, but you need to be in good shape if you want to enjoy the trip.”

“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.”
