We enjoyed the trip greatly. Having been to Peru on a G Adventures tour previously we were again impressed with the organisation and would recommend G Adventures to other travelers.

I enjoyed the company of the people on this tour, and judging by the age range, I felt this was the ideal tour for people in their 20's and early 30's. Having the staff put up our tents, prepare and clean up after all our meals was wonderful and made the camping experience very enjoyable.

A great experience - not only the animals but their habitat, how they live. Also great opportunity to see how the Masai live.

Well run tour, the food we were served up while camping was fantastic especially given the circumstances the cooks were working in. Our driver, Eagle Eyes, was great at spotting animals in the distance. His nickname was well deserved. We saw the big 5; and in the crater there were thousands of animals just wandering around. I really enjoyed every aspect of this tour.
