"We have just returned from Peru - The Train to Machu Picchu tour. I am writing to congratulate you on this holiday. The hotels were first class and the travel arrangements were flawless. The local guides were knowledgeable and friendly and our local tour manager looked after us very well. It was all a magnificent experience.
Tom and Wendy Tasker"
"To all your staff and those of your associates in Peru a very big and heartfelt thank you. The professionalism, support and guidance given throughout our tour were nothing but high quality and we would have no hesitation in recommending your tours to anyone.
Mr Stuart Jones"
"The most inspirational moment was impossible to define - so many interesting and beautiful places including of course Machu Picchu.
Mr Gordon Claridge"
"The incredible scenery, particularly of the Atacama desert and the Torres del Paine Nat. Park. Seeing volcanos from the air and then driving/walking around them was amazing.
Mrs Caroline Roberts"
"My first sight of Machu Picchu [was inspiring]. The emotions which I experienced were so powerful and surprising. An unforgettable moment I shall never forget.
Mrs Patricia Beeston"
"The visit to Easter Island was really the highlight of the holiday - an experience not to be missed.
Mr Timothy Marsh"
"Going round the Grey Glacier in a boat and drinking a pisco sour with ice from the glacier (at least so we were assured!)
Mrs Alison Jamieson"
"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"
"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 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"
"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"
"Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your work and help with our trip to South America, it was the most incredible and inspiring experience for both my Mum and myself.
"Almost too many [inspirational moments] to choose from - Lake Titicaca and its islands, Colca Canyon, Pre-Inca terraces, Alto Plano, native craftwork, Machu Picchu, Native South American peoples and their history, customs, values and characters, being at Machu Picchu on my 67th birthday...
Ms Lesley Evans"
"Our trip to Peru was the most exciting, interesting holiday I have ever had – in fact it was a life-changing experience.
