“Really well organised, with nice extra information and a pretty care for the traveller. The 4D/3N to Machu Picchu was a challenge in hours of walking, but our nice guide got us trough with beautiful environment! 4D/3N Uyuni Salt Flats was relaxed, by jeeps to a lot of beautiful nature!!”

“We had a fabulous adventure to Machu Picchu. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Views of the snow-capped mountains are breathtaking. The trek was quite difficult for us sometimes but the guide was very motivating and we could take some breaks.”
