    This was a great trip and a great introduction to Peru. You cover a lot of ground in a short period of time, seeing city, jungle, and mountains in 9 days. Intrepid has themselves a top notch group leader in Ale.

    Wonderful trip overall. There were 8 of us on the trip which was a good number. It was fast paced but possible. Great variety in places and more strenuous than I had predicted.

    This was our 8th Intrepid trip & the standard was as expected (i.e. good). It was incident free (for us anyway) and well organized. We enjoyed the variety of aspects to the trip, particularly given our limited time.

    This trip was great! Our guide Patricia was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about the sites and very informative about her home country. I didn\'t realize how much history was in Peru and how it\'s still evolving.
