This South America travel company did a great job of turning a trip dream into a reality. We had a tall order--family with kids, 3 week trip, traveling to Galapagos, rain forest and machu picchu--and they delivered. From the moment we landed in Quito until the day we left Lima, we were taken care of as much or as little as we desired. Nothing fell through the cracks and there were no hitches in our itinerary, guides, flights, lodging or meals. All the activities and tours were geared for our family and for the most part and where possible, it was just our family on essentially a private tour of the locations we wanted to see. The locations speak for themselves, but there are two instances where this company really shined. First, we spent 5 days in the rain forest which is exciting but due to the nature of the rain forest, accommodations are pretty rustic. At our next location, the lodgings, while still 3 star as we requested, were extremely luxurious and a wonderful surprise. Second, our travel company suggested a white water rafting trip in the Sacred Valley for our family--it was fun and there was amazing scenery. We never would have thought of it.
Galapagos--snorkeling with sea lions and sharks, seeing boobies and frigate birds on Seymour Island, getting up close and personal with giant tortoises.
Peruvian Rain Forest--seeing 4 species of monkeys, living in the jungle, finding a tarantula.
Sacred Valley--ruins at Pisac, white water rafting, visit to agroturismo to see chicha making and potter at work.
Machu Picchu--the ruins themselves, climbing Huaina Picchu, having a guide.
Cusco--the old town and San Pedro Market.
A little less time in the rain forest, it was one day too many.
