Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Itinerary Focus

Our trip to Peru and Galapagos was absolutely spectacular. Active Adventures didn't miss a detail and their primary objective was to make us happy and safe in everything we did. Our family of four - my husband and me, and our two college-age kids, loved all the activity which included hiking, biking, kayaking, scuba, and snorkeling. We started every day early in the morning and didn't end until well after 8:00 pm. The trip also included planes, trains and automobiles that was much like the movie of that name, but no reason to dwell on that. I felt like we got to be with the local culture and were immersed in our South American environment. Our group was also fantastic and will hopefully travel again with our new friends.

The Iguana trip really is 2 trips taken over a 2 week period of time just as advertised. The Peru portion definitely is activity level 4 compounded by the Altitude. I would definitely suggest that guests arrive a few days early in an attempt to acclimate to the altitude. We stayed in the Inka 1 hotel for the 2 days we had arrived in advance & highly recommend this hotel . They transported us from the airport & allowed us to check in @ 8 am to get some much needed shut eye after an overnight flight . Our tour actually went out of the Hotel San Agustin- very nice hotel but very noisy which made it difficult to sleep . The visit to Sacsayhuman was perfect for day 1 . Day 2 bike / Hike was simply awesome & the surprise lunch was fantastic. Our tour guide for the week in Peru was Arturo and he was everything anyone could ask for - attentive, articulate, knowledgeable and pleasant . The Day 3 hike had to be changed due to mudslides- thus an already long & Challenging hike was made even more difficult. ( 9 am- 6 pm at altitude). A rescue horse was available although the team did not use it . We had excellent weather and I don

An unexpected tour hiccup pushed me onto the Chinchilla in a serendipitous turn of events that allowed me to discover the beauty and wonders of Lake Titicaca and the Uyuni Salt Flats. Whilst my original intent was to do the Inca Trail, the Chinchilla was not a lesser alternative, as all the usual bells and whistles of an Active trip were still in abundance, plus the bonus of the spectacular sights I saw instead. (I did manage to do an abbreviated Inca trail on my own, with Rainbow Mountain thrown in. Which led to this epiphany: the Jaguar and Chinchilla would make an incredible combination.) That said, I did find the Chinchilla less strenuous than the Jaguar (as described), and would have wanted a little more Active with the Adventure. In part, this was because the supplemental tour guides may not have gotten the memo, and failed to incorporate certain activities that were advertised (e.g., the hike to the highest point on Taquile Island didn't happen). There is a fair amount of travelling involved, shuttling from Cusco to Puno to Copacabana to La Paz, which could have been a factor, but I would have been perfectly happy to start earlier, as well, if it allowed for more activities.

Or in some instances, tweak the itinerary. I was underwhelmed by the visit to Isla de la Luna, as we spent considerably more time travelling on the boat, than on the island itself, and the ruins were not particularly interesting or impressive. I wonder if a visit to Isla del Sol would have been better, despite being overrun by tourists. Maybe from a cultural perspective?

And maybe a little less time in Copacabana. The climb up and the view from Calvary Hill redeemed this stop for me, but other than this, there wasn't much in terms of cultural interest. The scene by the lake shore was busy and frenetic, but the water was too cold for me to venture in.

Nevertheless, the trip was incredible. I was impressed and awed by the beauty of Peru and Bolivia. I tried to stay awake during the long drives because the scenery, from the mountains to Lake Titicaca, were almost always spectacular. And don't get me started on the Uyuni Salt Flats. Beyond words. And the Luna Salada Hotel was simply amazing. I couldn't believe we were staying there.

As with Active trips, the food is usually an attraction in itself, moreso in Peru. The restaurants in Cusco and Puno were stellar. But also dominated by tourists. I was always itching for the opportunity to try more authentic local cuisine in establishments that are popular with the residents. The smaller group size for this trip afforded us the opportunity to go off the tourist track on a number of occasions, which led to wonderful discoveries, as well. The chicharron I had in Puno was the best I had in South America, and the fast food chicken (Pollo Copacabana in La Paz) that our driver in Uyuni recommended was flavorful and delicious. Perhaps that's an option you may want to include in your future tours. Other travellers may not be as adventurous, but I would welcome alternatives if offered, even if it was on my own.

Finally, the guides. Wilson did an excellent job of shepherding our small group around, even if he was under the weather. He was quick to respond to our questions, as well as to accommodate our requests. He managed the logistics seamlessly, and provided guidance and direction, especially on what foods to try.

And a special shout out to Israel Villaroel and Juvenal of Sande Andino. They made the trip to the Uyuni Salt Flats truly spectacular. They knew the territory well, and brought us to the best spots for photographs or to admire the view, especially at sunset. Our day at the salt flats was hands down, the best of the whole trip.

All in all, another amazing trip.

We had a fun, exciting, wonderful trip of a lifetime! We did not want to be driven around on a bus with old people, and this sure was nothing like that! It also was manageable for those of us who wanted to be outdoors and active, but are not military buff. Erick was very accommodating about adjusting the trip activities to fit our abilities, and he was fast thinking, capable and resourceful about getting help when I got in trouble with altitude sickness and its effects. He and Pablo were both enthusiastic, fun and engaging guides. They both took us to a wonderful variety of great restaurants with fabulous food throughout the trip.

This trip was exactly what we hoped for - packed with gorgeous views, amazing history, beautiful handcrafts and lots of time being out in the beautiful landscapes. Our time in the Galapagos was equally magnificent - we swam with turtles and sharks, saw many unique birds and enjoyed the unique culture on 3 separate islands. The guide were incredibly knowledgeable and skilled at managing the group. We were thrilled with this second trip with Active after a wonderful time in New Zealand last year.
