“Never been to South America before, but if the other countries in SA are half as brilliant as Peru, then I will have to go back. Everything from food to itinerary, accommodation, and overall arrangement was great. I could not have done this better myself, and it was nice to be able to lean back and enjoy, while our guide made sure we all had a great time.”
