    The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable about the history, architecture, geography, and wildlife of the sites we visited. They knew how to ensure we saw the full range of the animals we expected to see and many more. We enjoyed the variety of daily excursions and found we were able to get enough exercise and enough rest. The accommodations and meals were outstanding. We were always well taken care of and guided expertly through all the airports, trains, buses, and ships.

    The ruins were amazing. Loved the Galapagos, snorkeling, and the wildlife. Many of the activities required the physical capability to participate, which may be something to consider for elderly travelers.

    Everything was wonderful, but the surprise of seeing all the stars while in the Galapagos Islands was amazing. All the guides on the whole trip were so good about pointing out good places to eat and shop, even to escorting a few of us to the silver factory in Cuzco so we would find it okay.
