"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"
"Our trip to Peru was the most exciting, interesting holiday I have ever had – in fact it was a life-changing experience.
"Hard to choose between walking by the waterfalls at Iguazu and sitting listening to the jungle sounds in the Amazon rain forest.
Mrs Ruth Wilkinson"
"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"
"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"
"Many thanks for organising our South American trip, it was beautifully planned and executed.
"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"
"The high plains (Alto Plano) were fantastic to experience and to see the people who survived there. View down into Chivay was very impressive. Drive up to Macchu Pichu was hairy but well worth it - the views were breathtaking at the top. Train from Puno to Cusco was very very enjoyable. We were not looking forward to a 10 hour train ride but thoroughly enjoyed it. Peru Rail staff very well turned out and very helpful and service on train excellent.
Mr Roger Cockle"
"Visiting Machu Picchu was particularly exciting as the setting is so strange and unworldly - and its resident population of llamas is very beguiling! Seeing the sun rise over Lake Titicaca was also unforgettable.
Mr Charles Cox"
"Macchu Pichu & Lake Titicaca were both fantastic experiences, but it was the services of our tour leader Miguel which made our holiday so much more enjoyable - he was patient, professional and very efficient.
Miss Jane Henderson"
"One of the best holidays we have ever taken with several inspiring moments of which Machu Picchu has to be the top.
Mrs Angela Lawes"
"The holiday was very diverse and each day we had new and exciting experiences.
Ms Margaret Newton"
"The trip to Machu Picchu was incredible. The time we had there gave us the opportunity to really get a feel for the place and take all the photos we wanted to.
Ms Raffaella Facchini"
"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.
