To be honest, I have never been a tour person. Working for STA Travel has prompted me to take a different style of traveling approach and after taking this tour, I can honestly say that it is one of the best journeys I have every experienced. The tour was amazing and in the space of 3 weeks I saw and did so much without having sacrificed anything or been left wanting.

This was the best travel experience of my life! I've done a lot of solo backpacking and was unsure how I'd like being on a tour but this trip took care of all the annoying details of traveling so that I could focus on the cultural experiences and having fun with the amazing new friends I made on this trip. I could never have covered so much ground in so little time, yet it never felt rushed or like I was moving on before I was ready. I can't recommend this tour enough.

It was a good tour. Walter is a good tour guide. I thought Machu Picchu would have been the highlight but it was tough call between it and the Bolivian salt flats and desert. San Pedro de Atacama was an unexpected surprise too! It was just too cold in the Bolivian desert.
