The rafting was particularly enjoyable. The quality of the home stay accommodation was much higher than expected. The mini fiesta put on by the host was a welcome bonus. Another highlight was the picnic lunches that were served 'in the middle of nowhere'. Home cooking at 4000m WOW!

Our adventure holiday was amazing and surpassed my expectations. Peru was wonderful for us including our two children (11 & 13) and I would recommend it to anyone. The Rainforest accomodation was particularly special, striking the right balance of comfort, yet exposure to nature which you want to experience.
Each of our trip leaders were obviously well experienced. They all made us feel safe, had excellent english and were very personable to us and our children. Their knowledge of the Inca's and rainforest added so much value to our adventure as they each originated from the areas we visited.
It was clear that our health, well-being and happiness was paramount to each of the Agents used, their staff and the support crew used for our activities. Our food was always prepared freshly and was excellent by our dedicated chef Jose' in Cusco. This was an unbelievable family adventure for my 40th birthday and could not have been better. I will be recommending KE to all my friends and clients alike. They are obviously a leader in their sector.
The rainforest extension was very memorable as the guide was from the indigenious area, and he saw a startling variety of wildlife on the many sight seeing trips. This included going up a forest tower to overlook birds and the rainforest canopy as dawn broke, through to visiting a botanical garden where a Shamen describes the use of plants in medicine/healing. In Cusco, all the activities we did were excellent with high quality/new safety equipment. Each day, our support team met us at the end, in the minibus, with lunch prepared and set up for us overlooking a great view. It was truly wonderful.
Although it was more expensive than competitors, we believe in getting what we pay for and value for money. After speaking with your staff (Rachel) we had more confidence in your experience and organisation, not to mention the advice in planning our extensions starting at the rainforest first for example and working to higher altitudes.
Your firm are obviously experts at our type of holiday adventure and we are glad we followed our instinct!
