My daughter and I have recently returned from a World Expeditions Best of Peru and Bolivia tour and I thought that I would give you our thoughts on the tour. The accommodation, meals, transport and organisation were excellent Ė the long-boat trips were just lovely.
After arriving at our accommodation in Cusco (the owner was such a nice woman) we met our main guide, Veronica Illa. There was nothing that Veronica didnít know about this wonderful area around Cusco and she was willing to do anything for us. She is certainly a wonderful guide and we feel privileged that she was our tour leader. Once again the transport,drivers and attractions we visited were excellent. We were always picked up on time and our luggage was always taken care of. Everything ran very smoothly.
The ruins at Ollantaytambo were breathtaking and Veronica explained in detail, the Inca history. We loved our accommodation here! We started off on our 4 day Inca trek and at an early stage got to marvel at our wonderful porters. They are such hard working people who we admired greatly. The tents were always set up for us well before we arrived for meals and sleeping (and the toilet facilities).
But I think everyone was surprised by the quality and quantity of the food that was served up for each meal Ė piping hot and on time, every time. The gear pack and tents were all in very good condition and everything ran like clockwork. We were sad to see our porters leave us on Day 4.
The history of Machu Picchu was explained so well by Veronica and we had a lovely stay at Aguas Calientes before our trip back to Cusco.
Lake Titicaca is a magical place. The floating islands are amazing but the jewel in the crown on the lake was Taquile Island. We had such a wonderful time on this island with the homestay family. The family was very welcoming and we had a fun-filled time with their 3 little girls. They served us lovely food and we could have quite happily spent another night on this island to wander and discover a little more.
Our Bolivian guide, Sandro Diaz and our new driver took us to our lovely Hotel in La Paz.
We felt that Peru was so happy to welcome tourists to their wonderful country.
Overall,we had a wonderful experience in a different culture which we enjoyed immensely. I knew that I would love Peru but I just didnít realise how much !! Thank you World Expeditions.

Why World Expeditions?
World Expeditions has been specializing in creating tailor made adventures for a wide variety of private groups and family holidays for over 30 years. Over this time, we have specialized in taking many small private groups and families to destinations all round the world. With all this experience under our belt, we’re well suited to develop an itinerary perfectly suited to the needs of your private group. World Expeditions office staff are also very experienced and regularly travel on our journeys so we can pass on tips and first hand knowledge gained in the field.
Benefits of travelling in a private group
There are many benefits of private group travel. Though probably the benefit you’ll love the most is whilst you get the holiday of a life time, you don’t need to worry about organising it all, as that’s our job. And it’s a job we do well.
These holidays do not feature in our brochure, so the only people on the trip are those within your group. You choose the style of travel, the class of accommodation and the inclusions so the journey perfectly suits you and your group. Plus it’s totally up to your group to determine when and where you wish to travel, offering you greater flexibility and independence.
Also as you’ll be travelling as a group, you can rest assured we’ll secure a great price which will be cheaper if your group did the same itinerary without our assistance. Travelling with us also means we can take you safely to remote places and get you off the beaten track giving you a greater experience of the destination than a regular tourist.
Organising Private Group Travel
Organising a private group is as easy as picking up the phone or coming into our office. Just let us know where you wish to travel to, how many are in your group and an estimated date of departure and we’ll start researching and investigating your itinerary.
Once you’re happy with the trip, we’ll then put together a full set of detailed Trip Notes outlining the daily itinerary, the trip highlights, trip inclusions & exclusions, fast facts about the country, visa requirements as well as some other helpful info. These Trips Notes can be distributed to your group, so everyone has a clear idea of the holiday.
If you need a bit more info, then World Expeditions sales staff are more than happy to organise private information nights especially for your group based on the itinerary we create.
Remember as a fully serviced Travel Agent, we can also take care of your flights and visa’s as well as your land arrangements – so we’re a one stop shop.
