"Some excellent memories from each of the areas in Chile we visited – Santiago, the Atacama Desert, the Lake District, Torres del Paine National Park, Puerto Williams and Easter Island. The two highlights were Torres del Paine and Puerto Williams – in the former you felt as if you really were at the bottom of the world, almost like the outback in Australia. The daily activities in Puerto Williams were excellent.
Mr Brendan Fitzgerald"
"Loved the variety included in the holiday and the visit to Machu Picchu will never be forgotten.
Mrs Carole Wilson"
"We experienced a wonderful holiday and a friendly group of travelling companions; it was good to be part of a small group with a considerate and efficient tour escort.
Mrs Brenda Everest"
"Easter Island was amazing, just as I expected. The first sight of the crater at Orongo was breathtaking
Ms Carol Gould"
"There were absolutely no points in the holiday where I felt anything less than ravished by the scenery and captivated by the people and places we visited.
Mr Anthony Suggitt"
"Three equally moving scenes - the floating islands of Lake Titicaca, the town of Cusco, and Machu Picchu. The trip brought out the rich, and extensive, cultural heritage of Peru through the variety of places that our tour included.
Mr Iain Sim"
"The whole Explora experience really is something special and I think pretty good value for money. I was the only person doing the Travesia from El Chalten to Torres del Paine - it was fantastic!
Mr. Peter Kudirka"
"The welcome and friendliness of the Chilean people coupled with their civilised attitude that is modelled on the UK, was inspirational. The scenery from the Atacama to Patagonia is just overwhelming.
Mr Derek Lester"
"The guide, Valentino, was very efficient, excellent with local knowledge, always pleasant and punctual; an essential requirement. Comparing the desert and Patagonia is like comparing chalk and cheese. All the places had inspirational characteristics. Food and wine were varied and of a high standard.
Mr Stephen Fidler"
"Seeing Machu Picchu was still a wow moment even after visiting the other Inca sites.
Mr Mark Paterson"
"The Iguacu falls were probably the high spot, closely followed by Corcovada. The Manaus experience was very special too.
Mrs Vivienne Taylor"
"Peru was definitely one of the highlights. On a tour such as the Grand Tour of South America there will be many highlights. One of the unexpected real highlights for me were the rail journeys in Peru. PeruRail are fantastic and the three rail journeys we took were amazing. Great fun, well organised and very good quality trains and staff.
Mrs Claire Lawley-Woods"
"The most inspirational moment was impossible to define - so many interesting and beautiful places including of course Machu Picchu.
Mr Gordon Claridge"
"Our trip to Peru was the most exciting, interesting holiday I have ever had – in fact it was a life-changing experience.
