“This was a really good week of my two weeks. A good mixture of skiing and valuable instruction from Alex. He managed the mixed abilities of the group members really well using the penguins (don't ask!) to assist him in doing this. The other participants were good fun and easy to get along with. The hotel as usual was really good.”

“The trip was excellent and far exceeded my expectations. The walking is good. There are a lot of steps and some uneven sections but the distances and days aren't particuarly long. Most days we had a late lunch on arrival to our accomodation. There's plenty of opportunities for seeing the culture and taking part in other activities e.g a chinese massage, an acrobatics show, tea taasting, visiting temples etc.  ”

“We did the Inca Trail trip with the optional Amazon extension. The whole trip start to finish was professionally managed by insightful and knowledgeable guides - the excellent Julio and Shandy. The rest of our group were lovely and we enjoyed their company on the trip immensely. The trail is reasonably hard for an experienced hiker because of the altitude but we were all encouraged by the guides to walk at our own pace which really made the trek up dead woman's pass a fun and enjoyable experience with a guide always behind us as a back marker never hurrying us. All the guidance received about the day ahead and advise on the trek from both guides was spot on they made our trip trouble free and a real adventure. The chef and porters were amazing hard working people and made the trip feel like luxury. Anyone wondering about whether to book this trip should just go ahead and book it! You won't regret it! You need to be 'half fit' for the hike to enjoy it and make the most of it. I cycled 15km 3 times a week and a longer ride once a week of about 50km and found that enough to make the hiking enjoyable and not too hard. The Amazon extension was very good and we enjoyed it. Coming from South Africa and being people who have been on safari several times meant that we were slightly under whelmed by the wildlife but all the same enjoyed the experience of being in the jungle.”
