Casa Aliso
Gorgeous house. Very helpful. Loved it.
Casa Andina Premium Puno
Very nice hotel ideally situated.
El MaPi
Lovely and quaint. Well suited to the setting
Costa del Sol Ramada Cusco
Lovely friendly atmospheric local hotel.
Wyndham Costa del Sol Lima Airport
Just an airport hotel. Nothing special but adequate
MY Letty
Letty, fabulous! Also food very very good. Everyone could not have been nicer or more helpful. Claudia, the steward was amazing! As we paid extra for cabin on Letty, was a little disappointed with it. We expected small and cosy and it was. Bed though was small and pushed in under slanted ceiling. This reduced bed size and meant waking each other if we wanted to get up!

Our Memories

"It's really hard to pick out anything in particular. We would have an amazing day and think it could not get better, but it kept on getting better. We are not city people, but loved Cusco and Quito. We stopped in Madrid before flying and it was amazing too. Machu Picchu was just so special though some of the hiking quite tough! Walking sticks recommended unless you are very young and fit! As for Galápagos, it was one surprise and great after another. Being on a small boat was amazing, just like a family. Whole crew great and fellow guests too, we have made many friends. "
