All the excursions that Amazonas organised were very good. We enjoyed the Kayaking despite the weather not being great that day. It was incredibly well organised and the guide who did that with us was fantastic. they cooked an excellent lunch cooked by the lake which was great. The salt mine was well worth a visit and was fascinating. All the hikes were a great success particularly the one ending up in Ollantaytambo at an amazing organic farm/distillery/restaurant called El Albergue where we had a traditionally cooked meal, a Pachamanca. It was a spectacular day, possibly our best.
The hike to the Sun Gate was a great success though we found it quite tough despite the fact that we are reasonably fit and had done several hikes at altitude in the preceding days. It was a great way to see the ruins but we were absolutely shattered at the end. Our guide was excellent both at explaining the local flora and fauna but also pacing us and coaching us when we were getting tired. It took us 5 hours. There were very few people on it until we got very close to Machu Picchu and we were really glad we had done it. It was a good recommendation.

Cristo was excellent. Very knowledgeable and easy pace with lots of detail- a first class guide. The kids enjoyed the chocolate museum and Machu Picchu. The climb of Waynapicchu is a highlight and the salt ponds were great. Ollantaytambo was also lovely. The bike ride was ok but it didn´t really lead anywhere to see anything, so could be improved or replaced.

Jimmie was our guide. I felt he was very knowledgeable and especially appreciated his expertise in negotiating his expertise in negotiating the river and rapids. I felt very safe. He was very patient and encouraging on the Inca Trail. He left me with an appreciation for the Peruvian culture and I learned much about the history. Great guide. Also very personable.
