I booked an early bird trip with this company and paid for a single supplement, they then added the single supplement again and refuse to acknowlege that I did in fact book the single supplement at the start of my booking and have proof of the balance. stay clear of this company!

For the most part of the tour was amazing. Our tour guide Shabby and our driver Drew were the best and made the trip completely memorable... I have to say that it doing 18 day tour was the best part of it all, with all the free days... A shorter tour would've been too rushed... The tour was a comfort tour and you pay for what you get... The hotel in Germany was horrible (smokers dream), but Shabby handled that for us... The excursions were good, but none of the food dinners you can pay for were worth it... I'd've rather went to a restaurant on my own... Our group was amazing and I have many new life friends!!! One of he top experiences I've had!!! I plan on doing another tour in the next year or so! We did the Europe Explorer 18 day!!

Me and my sister took the Italian Delights tour in September/October for 12 days and had a brilliant time. We saw all the best sights of Italy (some that we didn't even know we needed to see!) tried most of the local foods and cuisine, and had a brilliant tour guide Roma who gave great insight into everything we saw. Some of our fellow travellers were not impressed with the accommodation, but for the price we paid, and the very little time we spent in the hotels, we didn't find this an issue at all! I would recommend to others taking this tour to arrive in Rome a few days early to see inside the Colosseum (as only the outside is included in the walking tour). The only reason I haven't given this 5* is as a tour group we all agreed that we needed longer in Pompeii to look around rather than in some of the shopping stops. Overall, fantastic price for a brilliant tour which crammed in everything we wanted to see!

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

The trip was one of the best trips we've done. Machu travel did a great job from logistics on airport, bus transfers, hotels are in the center of town, excursions were very organized, staff were there for us to take care of our needs, tour guides were very knowledgeable. Thank you!
