"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.

"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"
"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 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"
"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"
"Our trip to Peru was the most exciting, interesting holiday I have ever had – in fact it was a life-changing experience.
"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"
"The Iguacu falls were probably the high spot, closely followed by Corcovada. The Manaus experience was very special too.
Mrs Vivienne Taylor"
"Just wanted to let you know that we had the most fabulous holiday in Brazil and much of it was down to your careful planning and attention to detail.
"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"
"Loved the variety included in the holiday and the visit to Machu Picchu will never be forgotten.
Mrs Carole Wilson"
"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"
"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 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.
