Peru is a wonderful country with its varied landscapes and diverse cultures.
Nothing can quite prepare you for the stunning vistas in the Andes and the
once in a lifetime experience of the Inca trail, culminating at the Sun Gate
and that first view of Machu Picchu. All this led by our outstanding guide
Bobby and shared with a lovely group of people. A BIG thank you.
Undoubtedly that first view of Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate after 4
strenuous but amazing days on the Inca trail. It was quite an emotional
experience.


What a legend Bobby is! THE most fantastic guide, who shared his passion and
knowledge of his country and immersed us into its heart and cultures
throughout the trip.


1. Read the trip notes carefully
2. Get yourself physically fit for the trek which I personally believe is
higher than the moderate level 3 graded by Exodus.
3. Altitude will have an affect!
4. There are long drives but the scenery is always extraordinary and do help
you acclimatise to the altitude.
5. Days were pleasantly warm but the nights very cold particularly on the
trek and in Cusco, so layers are essential..
6. It is worth taking the optional extra flight over the Nazca lines to fully
appreciate the extent of the carvings.

Not just a holiday, more of an adventure!
Achieving day 2 of the Machu Picchu trek to Dead Woman’s Pass. Although not
long as a days trek, the rise in altitude to 4200 metres was tough!


The group leader, Bobby, was excellent in every department. A more capable,
competent and helpful guide in all probability does not exist. His
involvement with the group was welcomed by all and resulted in the trip being
a huge success for the group participants.
The information he provided on the various sites visited and the relevant
history was most interesting and created further discussion within the group.
With regard to the travelling and accommodation, Bobby took full control and
made our holiday somewhat carefree, thankfully!
A big thank you to Bobby!


Take warm clothing for the camping part of the trip as the nights can be very
cold!


The long bus journeys were tiring but it is part and parcel of the trip and
seeing some great sites and wonderful scenery.

A superb trip, very well planned and executed. The views were just amazing
and the porters food incredible. We were so well looked after. Our guide,
Bobby, was excellent and so informative. He knew all the best places to eat
as well! Hotels were all good and we would thoroughly recommend the
experience to others.
Arriving at Dead Woman’s Pass.


Bobby was brilliant, he couldn’t have been better.


Take plenty of thermals for the camping part as it was so cold at night.


Thank you!

Excellent Guide, Bobby (Ubaldo), helped the group understand so much about
Peru’s history, culture, fauna and amazing achievements of the Incas and
preceding tribes, and all done with real sense of humour. Off the Inca trail
Bobby continued to look after us, so the small group that flew back to UK
were looking for him to help sort us out at Gatwick. The porters and cooks
were also brilliant, not sure how they covered the route so quickly and made
food and camp sites so comfortable. Also helped having a really friendly
group of fellow travellers. All-in-all a brilliant experience.
Standing on a high point in the Andes above the camp watching the sun come up
- red glow spreading across the mountain peaks, magical.


Bobby (Ubaldo Quispe) was brilliant - gave so much insight and things to
think about, always joking, but real sense he was looking after us and
getting things organised. Missed him when we got back to UK!


If weather clear, take advantage of flight over Nascar lines, but don’t eat
for a couple of hours beforehand. Really brings home the scale, but involves
a lot of weaving. During Trail, take things slowly, but the guide will
explain things like that.
At Machupichu you are limited to small bag/ ruck sack, had left our small
bags behind, would have been good to know about the limitation before leaving
Cuzco.


Only frustration was breakfast 1st day at hotel Tambo in Lima. Due to early
start breakfast was minimalist, tea/ coffee, bread, jam. My wife doesn’t
drink tea or coffee, so nothing to drink for her, and somebody else didn’t
eat bread. Apart from that, the hotel was comfy and breakfast was good in
normal opening times.

This has been my dream holiday for as long as I can remember. Nazca lines,
Andes, walking the Inca trail to Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca. It was more
than I could have hoped for. The amazing scenery welcoming people, amazing
food, Pisco sours and a friendly enthusiastic Tour guide. Without the long
coach journeys we would have missed all the amazing scenery! The flight over
the Nazca lines truly amazing and well worth doing. Day 2 of the trail
definitely the hardest but the thrill when you reach Dead woman's pass is
nearly as inspiring as reaching the Sun gate and seeing Machu Picchu for the
first time. I was ill at the end of the holiday so missed Lake Titicaca.
Reaching Dead Woman's pass was as equaling inspiring as the emotion that
overwhelms you when you reach the Sun Gate and see Machu Picchu for the first
time.


Our group Leader Willmer Delgado was an amazing ambassador for Exodus and
for Peru. His knowledge of Peru and its history had us all enthralled for the
whole 15 days in Peru. Nothing was too much trouble including helping track
down my missing suitcase . Our assistant guide on the trail Kleverth was
along with Will very patient and being one of the slower walkers who suffered
with altitude sickness I was never made to feel like I was holding anyone
back.


Drink the coca tea when offered to you as it does help on the trail. Don't
let the coach journeys put you off, the scenery is amazing, you get to see
Vicunas and Alpaca's roaming free, Condor's and Flamingo's.
Above all enjoy the whole experience, a few early mornings wont kill you!
