Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

A must do trip. for most of the 8days on the choquequirao trail we hardly saw other walkers, and when we did it was in passing. and at choquequirao there was one other group, and we pretty much had the site to our self. the trails were tough at times, but the rewards of stunning views and totally amazing sites . and every time you turn a corner, they appeared to get better.
their are many but having lunch on the terraces at pinchaunuyoc absolutely stunning , lunch and seeing condors at parador abra san juan. valentine and achillies prepared the most amazing food. every day something different macho picchu

Rolando saico excellent new his country and the history of the sites has a real passion for his country . this really came across then speaking with him. nothing was to much trouble. made the difference of this being not a good holiday but a brilliant holiday.

if your thinking about this trip do it now . I thin with new infrastructure going on this trail is going to get a whole lot busier. insect repellent don't forget it. their not about most of the time, but make up for it when they are.

peru is a beautiful country full of culture. with great people . that respect your space and don't try to push you into buying things you don't want . this is a country to put on your bucket list.

Very enjoyable and well lead trip through some of Peru's less busy trekking trails. Some fairly tough climbs and descents but well worth it to find the tranquility of the Lost City of Choquequirao and explore Peru's beautiful and varied scenery. Was also good to be able to visit Machu Picchu on the last day - a great way to finish the trek!
3 key mommnets stand out;
- climing the hill from the camp site and entering the Lost City of C. Stunning.
- the point where Machu Picchu first comes into view in the distance
- the indiviudals in the group each reaching the top of the Choquequirao Pass - a great sense of achievement!

Very good. Really knew his stuff in terms of the history of the Incas and was a very approachable. Also had a very good sense of humour and interacted very well with the group.

Bring lots of insect repellant!!

Great trip, loved every minute of it. Thinking about my next one already!
