It was all good and every location was special so cannot choose one in particular.BC, Beckenham
A fantastic travel company for Peru. Highly respected locally. The whole Itinerary was flawless with extremely professional local reps in Peru. I believe the Inca trail company in Cusco to be the best there!JD, Swansea
Highlights?: Maccu Picchu and the trains to and from the Sacred Valley, also the hotels in Cusco and the Sacred valley.AJ, London
"We saw some amazing scenery, the train was wonderful and Machu Picchu unbelievable."PS, Stanmore
It was memorable because of the cultural and geographical variety so can't pick out particular part. We were in 3 different climates, in mountains, jungle and coast. Probably enjoyed the places where we had most interactions with nature i.e. Lake Titicaca and jungle.SL,
Most Memorable Moment?: Machu Picchu... does anyone traveling to Peru ever put anything else? :-)ME, Carlisle
I had a fantastic trip in Peru, meeting friendly people and seeing some wonderful sites. All the agents in Peru were prompt and very helpful.KU, Crouch Hill
Most Memorable Moment?: One day hike to Sun Gate/Macchu PicchuSF, Woking
"The most enjoyable… having chocolate pancakes in the narrow cobbled streets of Cusco. And in the mountain village of Aguas Calientas. And in lots of other places. The kids having fun with the cats at the cat park of Lima. Meeting a mountain family and finding out about their way of life. This included meeting their guinea pigs – kept purely for their meat.”LBM, South Africa
"Obviously Machu Pichu was a highlight but Ollaytaytambo was impressive, Chinchero was lovely and Cusco was fantastic [we're looking into buying a house there!] the Vistadome, particularly with the staff on the return journey to Cusco, who put on a fashion show, music and dancing for us, which they genuinely seemed to enjoy too, was fantastic. I'd also really recommend Huaco Pacllano in Lima - I'd never seen a site like it before."SAG, Hythe

Most memorable experience: "Impossible to pick! Machu Picchu, the floating Uros Islands, the Nazca Lines, and seeing the condors were all incredible experiences that we will never forget."KF, Reading
Everything was fantastic. We had a great holiday that we will remember for years to come.CLA,
The Inca Trail with the 3 day camping has to be the most memorable part. It was an extraordinary adventure - tough, exhilarating, stunning and as a family with grown up children an amazing challenge to do as a group of 5. We all loved Peru and our holiday. Peru surprised us. It blew our minds. The country is stunning, the people charming, the history fascinating and the food absolutely delicious. We look forward to returning and maybe trying the Salcantay trek! We will definitely want to return to El Tambo for more chill time!GC, London
Highlights: That's hard.., so many... for Alex: inca trail, for us: condors, lake titicaca, huchuy qosqo, ruins around cusco, colca canyon riding, chinchero market, moray & maras, macchu Picchu / inkaterra. We loved it all.CB, Sandwich
Most Memorable Moment?: Perhaps looking down on Machu Pichu for the first time, or was it the ceviche for lunch as part of the buffet in the Sacred Valley, or maybe Buenos Aires( a mixture of New York side walks and Parisian Boulevards )or the tranquillity of the gardens @ L'Auberge Hotel. and not forgetting the splendour of the Basilica at CuscoAD, Cheltenham
"All of it was memorable in different ways as the culture is so different. We found the Peruvian people helpful and cheerful. We enjoyed Arequipa, the Colca Canyon and Lake Titicaca, along with all of the trips and transfers."GH, Keighley
"The people, mixing with the Peruvian people in the markets, talking and laughing with them."JL, Cobham
Highlight: Reaching the sun gate mid/late afternoon to see Machu Picchu bathed in sunshine.RK, Worcester
There were so many highlights, but Machu Picchu and climbing Huana Picchu and the whole Galapagos trip are the most memorable.GJ, Richmond
We had a private tour, which we think was the best way to do this sort of trip. Although we had only 9 days in Peru in the Cuzco area, we managed to cover an extensive amount of material in depth and the whole trip was unforgettable. The local organisation was superb - punctual, knowledgeable, reliable, etc.PS, Reading
Highlight: Being able to recreate photographs at Sasqaywaman above Cusco of our relatives who came to live in Peru in 1910.CC, Bristol
Inca Trail: This was an incredible experience. The guide/porters were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.DH, Aylesbury
Undoubtedly visiting Machu Picchu. Albeit have to give special mention to Soy y Luna, Colca Lodge and Antigua Casona San Blas, they made us feel very special. Finally the organisation and the guides were all warm and friendly and made us feel like family.RS, Northwood
“We enjoyed all the places we visited on our holiday in Peru, and the experience was enhanced by friendly and knowledgeable local guides. The spectacular scenery we saw will stay in our minds for quite some time.”MM, Newcastle Upon Thyne
I really liked variety on this trip - amazing culture, history, nature all in one trip. Machu Picchu tour was great, excursions in rainforest were very memorable.
"We were so thrilled to have the 3 nights in Cusco - a) we all LOVED La Casona so much (the amazing bathrooms, the fireplaces (lit) in the bedrooms, the staff, the ambience, etc, and b) we SO enjoyed all the amazing restaurants in Cusco (we are food and wine lovers, so had a great time!). Machu Picchu was absolutely AMAZING too - something to remember forever. We did love Hotel B in Lima too, but of course we were jet-lagged and only there for 1 night....We had an amazing time in Peru - the highlight being Machu Picchu. I would strongly suggest that people should stay at the Sanctuary Lodge at the site to get the best from the experience. We loved Peru - and really loved Cusco."JH, London
Most memorable experience: “Colca Canyon, Floating Islands on Lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu without doubt. The journey from Ingapirca to Cuenca was very beautiful.”CR, Truro
Highlights?: White water rafting on the Urabamba river, Pirahna fishing and the lake titicaca tour.MH, London
By fay the most memorable part was our time at refugio Amazonas.... The staff made our stay wonderful. Really cannot recommend this place enough.JW, Swadlincote
