"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.

"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!

"Loved the variety included in the holiday and the visit to Machu Picchu will never be forgotten.
Mrs Carole Wilson"
"The visit to Easter Island was really the highlight of the holiday - an experience not to be missed.
Mr Timothy Marsh"
"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"
"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"
"We have just returned from the most amazing trip to Peru. The highlight of the holiday was without doubt walking the Inca trail. What an experience. I wanted to thank you for all your help and advice. The itinerary you prepared for us was perfect.
"The floating islands on lake titicaca were impressive. The views at Machu Piccu and Rio de Janerio were fantastic.
Mrs Hilary Reid"
"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"
"Getting really close to the glaciers from the cruise ship was terrific.
Mr Richard Dobson"
"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 holiday was very diverse and each day we had new and exciting experiences.
Ms Margaret Newton"
"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.
