Most Memorable Moment?: Every step of the way was amazing... But Machu Picchu was undeniably the crown jewel of the tripJB,
"The aim was always to get to Machu Pichu and we did it in style all the way. MP was everything we expected. Cusco, Sacred Valley and Machu Pichu hotel all fab as was the Hiram Bingham train ride back to Cusco."JE, London
Highlight?: Walking and running on the cliffs of Lima. Food tour in Lima.CC, Settle
Highlights: So many . Cuzco ,explora stay in Sacred Valley ( including amazing hikes) , Macchu Picchu , lunch at AStrid y Gaston in LIma.MO, London
The Peru holiday was all very well constructed. Favourite parts were the floating islands, the nocturnal canoe trip and the trek to Macchu Picchu. Organisation was brilliant and it all hung together very well. Thanks!AMW, Letchworth
Highlight: Being able to recreate photographs at Sasqaywaman above Cusco of our relatives who came to live in Peru in 1910.CC, Bristol
Most Memorable Moment?: Getting to the top of Huayna Picchu.PR, Edinburgh
Most memorable experience: “The jungle was fantastic and being alone in Lake Titicaca as well.”SD, South Ealing
Most Memorable Moment?: Perhaps looking down on Machu Pichu for the first time, or was it the ceviche for lunch as part of the buffet in the Sacred Valley, or maybe Buenos Aires( a mixture of New York side walks and Parisian Boulevards )or the tranquillity of the gardens @ L'Auberge Hotel. and not forgetting the splendour of the Basilica at CuscoAD, Cheltenham
By fay the most memorable part was our time at refugio Amazonas.... The staff made our stay wonderful. Really cannot recommend this place enough.JW, Swadlincote
"We saw some amazing scenery, the train was wonderful and Machu Picchu unbelievable."PS, Stanmore
Highlight?: Machu PicchuRN, London
Highlight?: Seeing Machu Picchu for the first time, it literally took my breather away, Ineven had tears in my eyes it is so stunning.CE, Rickmansworth
Inca Trail: This was an incredible experience. The guide/porters were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.DH, Aylesbury
"Obviously Machu Pichu was a highlight but Ollaytaytambo was impressive, Chinchero was lovely and Cusco was fantastic [we're looking into buying a house there!] the Vistadome, particularly with the staff on the return journey to Cusco, who put on a fashion show, music and dancing for us, which they genuinely seemed to enjoy too, was fantastic. I'd also really recommend Huaco Pacllano in Lima - I'd never seen a site like it before."SAG, Hythe
For me, I think that it was the Lords of Sipan and Royal Tombs Museum, and the Temple of the Moon at Trujillo. For Angela, it was Tucume and the Temple of the Moon.PS, Reading
Highlights?: Maccu Picchu and the trains to and from the Sacred Valley, also the hotels in Cusco and the Sacred valley.AJ, London
“The range of experiences was like an assault course on the senses. The geography, the cultural diversity, the wildlife, the colours.”RC, Ealing
"It was the overall experience that was important and I keep finding myself recalling small details that were entrancing at the time and then got lost in the next bout of sensory overload. In the end, I'd say it was the fact that I was able to speak almost nothing but Spanish for the duration of my trip that gave and gives me the greatest pleasure. Partly this is satisfaction that I adapted my Castillian Spanish so well to Peru. More importantly, I know that I got much more out of my guided tours because my guides were able to convey subtleties in their own language that would have got lost in translation. This is one of the key pluses of the 'tailor made' model. Having mainly private tours and excursions meant that I rarely had to compromise on this, for me, key aspect of the experience."DM, Nottingham
Machu Picchu was the most memorable part of the trip. The rain forest was fun. We loved the Andean Express train journey too.MdlATS, London
"All of it was memorable in different ways as the culture is so different. We found the Peruvian people helpful and cheerful. We enjoyed Arequipa, the Colca Canyon and Lake Titicaca, along with all of the trips and transfers."GH, Keighley
A short note of thanks for organising our Peruvian holiday. The fast moving itinerary went exactly to plan, all the accommodation was excellent and exactly as you described....We all thoroughly enjoyed the two weeks and will recommend JLA to friends.AF, Chiswick
Highilght: Watching condors rise on the thermals in Sondondo.RE, London
Highlights?: Both the Inca Trail and Puerto MaldonadoCR, Morden
"We were so thrilled to have the 3 nights in Cusco - a) we all LOVED La Casona so much (the amazing bathrooms, the fireplaces (lit) in the bedrooms, the staff, the ambience, etc, and b) we SO enjoyed all the amazing restaurants in Cusco (we are food and wine lovers, so had a great time!). Machu Picchu was absolutely AMAZING too - something to remember forever. We did love Hotel B in Lima too, but of course we were jet-lagged and only there for 1 night....We had an amazing time in Peru - the highlight being Machu Picchu. I would strongly suggest that people should stay at the Sanctuary Lodge at the site to get the best from the experience. We loved Peru - and really loved Cusco."JH, London
Inca trail, Machu Picchu, cusco, colca canyon, Arequipa, uros islands Guides on inca trail, sacred valley, 3rd party: cooking course in cusco, trek in colca canyon, salsa dancing cusco, via Ferata in sacred valley.CM, Eastleigh
Highlight: Reaching the sun gate mid/late afternoon to see Machu Picchu bathed in sunshine.RK, Worcester
"It is difficult to pick out just one experience from such a plethora of new ones. There was so much to see and absorb in Peru which was fascinating, but Machu Picchu must rate very highly in our list of memorable events on the mainland as must the whole Colca Canyon experience including the drives through the Highlands to Chivay."ND,
Highlight?: The train journey to M Picchu and seeing M Picchu - absolutely awesome and I got a seat on the left of the train (for best views!). The tour of the Salt Flats and journey to San Pedro were stunning too. Really good tour guide during this part. Hannah at JLA was a great help before and during the holiday. She made it possible to visit on the desired dates (e.g. so I could go on a star gazing tour in San Pedro during a change in mood cycle). Always replied promptly to my emails. Especially appreciated little extras - e.g. being on the left of the train to M. Picchu for the best views, being allocated window seats on planes, etc. All this meant I could really enjoy the scenary. Stand out hotels were in Urubamba, M. Picchu, and Uyuni - all exceeding my expectations. I didn't realise so many lunches / dinners were included which was a great bonus.MP, Amersham
Most Memorable Moment?: Cusco - such a great atmosphere with so much history.MH, Manchester
