Possibly I hadn't given this trip the serious thought it required. I've climbed peaks before, well the three highest in the UK that is so how difficult could Kilimanjaro be! The daily walks were brilliant, the summit climb torture and the cold- well absolutely freezing.
Tour was excellently planned, giving us the chance to see as much of Peru as possible. Tour Leader was very helpful and gave us excellent service. The only drawback was the long time spent on the coach travelling from place to place but, given the country's vastness, it was to be expected.
I had never travelled alone before however met with a warm welcome from the trip leader and the other travellers. I was a little apprehensive about staying in the gite as it was a little out of my comfort zone, but found the accommodation was of a higher standard than I had anticipated. The group soon bonded well and our leader was always on hand to answer any questions or to explain the next day's activities.
