Where to start?
- Cayman spotting at night from a canoe on the Amazon
- Home cooked guinea pig in a family home
- Looking down on Machu Piccu from the Sun Gate
- Playing with the disabled children and orphans at the Rainbow Centre
- Learning how to play Zapo at a family run chicheria (chicha is the local corn beer, an acquired taste!)
- The lovely cobbled hills of Cusco
- Stumbling across a Pacha Mama festival in the Sacred Valley
- Doing the Inca Trail (well, one day of it, but still means you can say you've done it!)
- Inca Kola for the kids (like a Peruvian Irn Bru) and Pisco Sours for the grown ups!
And for Mums...great markets!
Our guide in the Amazon - Edwin at the Tambopata Lodge - was an exceptional young man, with a wealth of knowledge of and passion for his home. He was equally good with kids and adults, and is an eagle when it comes to spotting wildlife. All this after he'd only just recovered from dengue fever too!
Carlos was our guide for the Inca part of the tour. Again, very knowledgeable, and clearly loves his country though happy to share its chequered history and the cultural issues which still affect it. And he's VERY concerned that you put on enough suncream, watch the steps, drink enough water...:)
