"The Iguacu falls were probably the high spot, closely followed by Corcovada. The Manaus experience was very special too.
Mrs Vivienne Taylor"
"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"
"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"
"Seeing the citadel of Macchu Picchu in the flesh at close hand ranks with the awesome sights of the Taj Mahal, the Great Pyramids and the Treasury in Petra for instance. To this must be added the visit to see the Condors up close. Fabulous.
Mr Derek Lowdon"
"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"
"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"
"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 first sight of Macchu Picchu through the clouds was amazing. The descending cloud made a magical place all the more mysterious and mystic. Truly magical experience.
Mrs Yvonne Thorp"
"The floating islands on lake titicaca were impressive. The views at Machu Piccu and Rio de Janerio were fantastic.
Mrs Hilary Reid"
"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"
"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"
"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"
"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"
"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.
