My tour turned out to be a trip of a lifetime. I really appreciated G Adventures's consideration of local persons and services. It really made it possible to experience Peruvian culture. I have a great deal of respect for G Adventures's low-impact tourism policy!

The G Adventures tour far exceeded my expectations, and I would recommend G Adventures to anyone when considering a tour group option. Everything was taken care of, and a special mention to our tour leader Caroline who did a tremendous job from chasing down lost luggage, to taking us to the best restaurants every night! The high point of the trip was when our group made it first to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu and watched an awesome sunrise over the Inca City. A big mention also to G Adventures for outsourcing their treks to tremendous companies.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever trip to South America. The Inca Trail and Cusco were great, but for me the homestay on Lake Titicaca and the stunning views of La Paz were the highlights. I was very, very, very impressed by the staff of G Adventures in Lima in helping me catch up with the group in Peru after my flights in were disrupted by Hurricane Jeanne.

I got back two days ago from a tour Inca Empire. Our tour leader did a great job for the group and amazed me. He had a good sense of humor; was well organized, made good decisions in special situations and took care of everyone who needed the most. I have no doubt in my mind that I will recommend G Adventures to all of my friends. Thank you G Adventures for giving me a chance to meet many nice people and making my trip unforgettable.Thanks also to our tour leader who encouraged me and took care of me during the difficult Inca Trail hike.

My name is Rebecca Durbin. I recently went on a G Adventures tour - the inca trail from April 27 to May 11. My tour leader was Jeff Kennedy. I can not express how INCREDIBLE he was!! Not only was he a fun person to be around, he made the trip itself interesting and I learned a great deal about Peru and the people of Peru. Jeff went from a great leader to an outstanding leader very quickly, however. I had some trouble with the trail and Jeff immediately took my health into his own hands without a thought. He was gracious and made me feel at ease, difficult because of the disappointment that came with what I thought to be as failure. When at the hospital, he acted as a translator - and even insisted that I take notes to pass along to my doctor at home, and receipts so that I might be reimbursed for expenses. Because of his clear thinking even in the midst of a possible emergency, my doctors here have been able to use the info gathered with his help, and therefore are better able to treat me. I can not express how deeply grateful and thrilled that Jeff was my tour leader. If there were an award, a medal, anything at all, I would gladly recommend him to be a recipient. I can only say that when I describe my experiences with friends and family, I will encourage them to use G Adventures because of Jeffs impeccable performance. If all your leaders are as wonderful as he is, your program will only grow in popularity and prestige.

The trip was amazing, a great blend of culture from the Incan civilisations as well as the modern day Andean culture. The Inca trail was definetely the highlight of the whole trip and having a guide who was a local was a fantastic asset for us all.
