    3.5 - Good

    That was an impressive tour with a lot of new experiences. Overall, I had a great time, even though there are surely ways to improve the schedule a little (and the breakfast^^)

    3-day hike during trip was best part. Rest, good if you're new to travelling and want your hand-held going from main tourist sites. You'll see the tourist-Peru but won't go too deep into the real Peru. Vegetarian fare consists often was omlette, cheese in bread, or worse, meat badly picked out from a meat dish! Would do shorter tour of just main tourist sites.
