Liz at Andean Travel constructed a perfect itinerary for us.
Particular high points were the Amazon rainforests (Corto Maltes) where our guide, Franklin, was outstanding.
Naturally the Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu was also a big highlight. Our guide for the day at Machu Picchu, Xavier, was excellent - he provided the right level of detail and gave us time to explore on our own when appropriate.
Huge credit also to Lisbeth at Andean Travel who was on hand to ensure that the packed itinerary went smoothly every step of the way.

Hotel Review
Corto Maltes Amazon Lodge
Puerto Maldonado

The perfect combination of solitude and comfort conveniently positioned on the Madre de Dios river in the Amazonian rainforest. We spent 3 days at Corto Maltes and enjoyed 2-3 expertly guided treks into the jungle each day.

Authenticity & Character
Great level of comfort without detracting from the authenticity of the jungle/rainforest location.
Madre de Dios river. Arrival and departure by boat.

Corto Maltes Lodge 2/3 (Sandoval Lake Program)
Puerto Maldonado

The highlight (alongside Machu Picchu) of our Peru trip. Our guide, Franklin, was outstanding.

Quality of Experience
Food was excellent in light of the rainforest location (and I’m a veggie which can raise a challenge where there are limitations on the options available).
