Globus did a great job with the tour. However in the future I would recommend a little gap in the intensity of the days activities and the one nights in several hotels. This posed to be quite exhausting. Overall they did a great job and delivered on what was promised Thank you .
We had a fabulous tour director, Adrian. Macedo. I could not have hoped for anyone more meticulous with detail and organization
Everything done well.
Excellent Trip. Tour Director, Adrien, was great.
Globus/Monograms delivered as expected. The pre and post parts were managed by Monograms. and we were met at every change of locations by an escort. However there were some hiccups not within the control of Affordable tours. On arrival in Lima at 9:30 pm, I was advised that the location of the Amazon lodge had been changed. It was because of civil unrest at the original location and the change was justified. However, they had to know 2 to 3 days in advance, and did not notify me. The new arrangements were great but could not have been made in the one day while I was traveling. Upon return to Lima for the main tour, the guide for the main portion did not know of the Amazon change.--- Also, when I arrived in Quito I was given incomplete and inaccurate written information on the Galapagos portion. I was met at the Galapagos Airport by Kline Tour representatives of the ship, none had a Globus sign as advised. No information on the flight from the islands to Guayquil was provided, the ship had to call others to find what our flight was. The paperwork given to me in Quito listed a different hotel in Guayguil than the one on the original schedule, but that was incorrect, we were taken to the Hilton as scheduled. My cabin on the ship was unpleasant. It was designed as a single, but had two twin beds which left six inches between the bed and the hull of the ship opn one side and mothering on the other. I had to crawl on the bed from the foot. There was no place to store my large suitcase. So, left it out on the second bed, which was against a wall on one side and the 2nd bed (that I slept in on) the other side. The ships phone was on the porthole ledge, no table or chair in the cable. It also was on the lowest deck for passengers. Below me was a two deck space for the ships engines, They were so loud as to limit use of the TV. The next cabin size was a junior suite that was much better and if given the choice, I would have paid extra for the upgrade. Hotels in both countries DO NOT HAVE HEAT, only AC. Take warm sleeping clothes. Two hotels provide small electric heaters (shaped like radiators), The Hilton Guayguil suggested I turn of the fan for the room AC and open the Window. That worked!! I am out of room to add more. But, Good Trip!!
Fantastic experience of not only place/geography, but of people/culture. Peru Splendor was quite physical in terms of activity..walking & climbing.... we loved it. Our tour director and his associates were professional, helpful and kind. They really were very informative and they really cared for our concerns.
It was a wonderful well planned trip.
The only thing I did not like was spending a night and day tour in Lima. It would have been better to go directly to Cusco.
Had a very wonderful trip. Liked the smaller group of 26. Scenery was fabulous. Love Globus. This is our 3rd trip with them. This was the most strenuous, but I did expect that.
Peruvian food was delicious! Hotel rooms were also good. The way the trip is planned (short stop in highest elevation of Cusco, then lower elevations before back to Cusco for 2 nights) helped us all adjust to the altitude. Though it was still tough climbing up steps! Drink lots and lots of water. All our guides spoke good English and got us where we needed to go.
