It was a fantastic trip! If you want to go to Peru and Bolivia, I would definitely book this trip! For me it is a journey never to forget!
Very dissatisfied with the misleading flight information. KLM was advertised while Shoestring knew for months they would not fly. AIR Europa were used and due to flight schedules we had a shorter holiday. Suddenly a stopover in Madrid was added and the quality of Air Europa was not comparable with KLM. Would not recommend to friends nor would I use Shoestring again for this reason.
Was very annoying that we could not do the Inca trail as it was already full (we were the first bookers for this trip). It should be clearly indicated when something is not available. Prices and excursions on the Dutch website are not current - At the destination itself they are different.
A 7.5, rounded up. The hotels were sometimes a bit rough around the edges (I'm quite used to that) but again, the tour guide was the best ever! Suggest not spending 3 days in Potosi – far too long!
In my booking I had taken an option on the 2-day Inca Trail. Upon confirmation of my trip it was mentioned that the Inca Trail was already fully booked until June but that this was not a reason to allow me to cancel my booking. If you already knew that the Inca trail was full until June it should have been mentioned on the website. Now there is false hope to the people who want to make this trip. Thus, there is false hope to me.
