Atacama to Machu Picchu
What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour
Sights and experiences come at you thick and fast on this tour so picking one out isn't exactly easy. That said, the Bolivian Altiplano and Uyuni Salt flats spring to mind as stand-out landscapes. Wonderful.
Tour Leader Name
How Was Your Explore Tour Leader
Brilliant. One of the best Tour Leaders I've ever come across. Unfortunately this won't be much use to future travellers as she's retiring. Jo will be a hard act to follow.
What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour
Take clothes for all seasons. Don't worry about the altitude, but have Ibuprofen handy in case you get the typical headache. Take an alarm clock, you'll be up early most days!
What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?
"There were many highlights, but the most memorable were:
1. The Uyuni salt flats. They were extraordinary, surreal, like a Salvador Dali painting come to life. No photograph can do them justice, they have to be seen to be believed.
2. The road from El Alto to La Paz. The world's most extraordinary ride from an airport to the city.
3. Just about everything in Bolivia, the most extraordinary country I've ever been to. Nowhere in the world is like it."
How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Joana was absolutely fantastic. She was positive and helpful throughout the duration of the tour. She "oiled the wheels" for us, sorting out tickets, rooms, problems, you name it, so that we could just concentrate on having a great time and the holiday of a lifetime.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Bring warm clothes and sturdy shoes! You'll be at high altitude most of the time, so it'll be cold, especially at night. Follow your leader's advice on dealing with the altitude - drink plenty of water - and coca tea! - and take it easy.
Do you have anything else to add?
I am seriously thinking of doing this tour again, I loved it so much.
