Our first Road Scholar trip and certainly not our last. Jam-packed with a huge variety of cultural and natural experiences, you will be happy that you rose to the challenge. Great accommodations, expert guides. Tell your friends you're going to Machu Picchu and the Galopogos, and hear them say "That's on my bucket list" - or "We went and it was the trip of a lifetime!"


This program was extraordinary. The group leader was amazing and I would travel with him and Road Scholar again any time!


I have traveled to Europe and Australia with different groups, and enjoyed them, but those previous experiences cannot hold a candle to what I experienced in Peru and Ecuador through and because of Road Scholar. The Group Leader and the Tour Guides were just exceptional. All the accommodations were very comfortable, and the would was exquisite. God-willing, we will travel again with Road Scholar, AND tell those we know who travel all about their wonderful programs. This experience, literally, has changed my life.


This was a trip of a lifetime for me! The program was extremely well organized, the accommodations and meals above my expectations and our Tour Guide Augusto was the best! I will definitely travel with Road Scholar in the future.


Machu Picchu and the Galapagos are two not to be missed venues for travelers interested in our planet, its history and its creatures. Plan for and visit these unique places.


The trip was fantastic and our tour leader was terrific. I recommend taking it. I would take another RS trip. There were a couple things that could be improved though... I was unable to get into the discussion site until just shortly before the trip started. This happened even after I contacted support at least 3 times. It turns out that there were no discussion comments. Everyone I consulted on the phone was friendly and tried their best to help. But I was disappointed that much of the time questions before the trip could not be answered promptly. Staff had to consult others to get answers. Sometimes staff said I had to call another department. I'd rather have one specific contact handle everything. All in all the trip was great and we learned a lot. The staff works hard and produced a great product.
