Our group tour ended up being the two of us and after some in trepidation, it turned out to be brilliant. at each destination a guide was there to help with everything. In fact due to the time spent, you became close with them and they made the trip wonderful. Santiago was great with the recent history and the passionate guide who helped us feel at home. Galapagos is literally another world and just by luck, it was low season and so fewer people. We met other great travellers in the rich and diverse land. The closeness of the animals and the bringing to life Charles Darwin's theory was second to none. We would go back again. Cuba, a place that is safe, warm and friendly, don't believe what you are told as the Cubans have a different view on history and how they live, works and works well. This is an amazing land rich with culture and music and mojitos. Brilliant. Peru and the Incas and the level of advancement from 1000 years ago is superb. 70% of all food that we know originated from Peru. This is a must travel, but ensure you take your altitude tablets and drink the Coco Tea. The whole tour was the brilliant, well organized and actually great that there was only the two of us. Worth every penny!
