Holiday review by Ms Janine Sparks

Name: Ms Janine Sparks

Date of trip: 05/09/2015

Number of people: 2

Arrangements worked well (except one hiccough when we were taken to the wrong Hilton hotel in Lima, so we had to get a taxi to the correct one). Weather was fantastic, guides were wonderful, scenery was out of this world, food great (and nice and healthy), lodges very comfortable, other trekkers were great!

Tribes Overall:

What an adventure, it was fantastic.

Tribes Service:

Paul answered all of our questions, very helpful and knowledgeable.


Took great care of us at all time, especially when I was unwell. Very caring. Rodrigo in lima in particular was extremely knowledeable, professional, and gave us some great recommendations for when we had done free time the following day. You should use him as much as possible! Great guide.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

Yes, many examples where it was clear that local people benefitted from our trip.
