The Two Worlds of Peru is a great trip for those who are traveling with friends or relatives with differing physical capacities and needs than the other. The Amazon part was perfect for me as I enjoy more relaxed and low-physicality activities whereas my sister was happier with the Andes section as she likes to keep very physically active. The guides on all sections of this trip were totally amazing. One of the highlights was the night time excursion in the Amazon when the guide(s) pulled up a juvenile caiman onto the boat after gently securing her/his mouth. That was so awesome. The caiman was very cute and calm. We saw so many wonderful animals. Bring the best binoculars you can as it will make it so much more rewarding.

This program far exceeded expectations. The Road Scholar staff and guides were well organized, extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. Other participants were friendly and eager to learn. The insight into the Inca and Peruvian culture was mind expanding.

Road scholar works very hard to make meaningful connections with other people in the world, learning about their culture, history and living situations. You will be challenged physically and mentally with numerous outings to view the scenery, creatures and native plants of the country. Will definitely go Rhodes scholar again in the future!

The Trip of a Lifetime! There were so many wonderful experiences on this trip. Road Scholar handles everything and makes traveling so easy. The MV Amatista is a wonderful riverboart. Loved every minute onboard. Excellent food, well presented, great variety. Very accommodating staff. The naturalists were fantastic. Fishing for piranha was a highlight for me. My husband loved swimming in the Amazon with the dolphins. Then on to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu...a dream come true. The train trip was beautiful. And the accommodations and Aqua Calientes made us want to stay or return. Kept pinching myself and asking "Am I really here?!?"

We really enjoyed the Amazon boat adventure. We learned so much about the environment and culture of the area. This trip highlighted the diversity of the Peruvian culture in the cities, rain forest, and highlands.

A very interesting program with the opportunity to see the wonders of both the Amazon and the Incas, while gaining some exposure to the natives. Great leaders and interesting lectures and stories.

Terrific experience -- physically challenging but worth the effort. Learned so much about Peruvian culture and saw such wonderful things. Small and interesting group from diverse parts of the US -- managed to overcome political differences in a highly politicized period to enjoy each other's company.

We have taken many Road Scholar trips and loved them all. I especially enjoyed this trip to Peru. The program was well designed and well organized. The trip manager and the on site guides were great, very knowledgeable and pleasant to be with. The country is s so interesting geographically and has so much history and tradition. I loved it all, but especially loved the Amazon portion. Just an amazing experience!

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent trip to Peru to see the amazing Amazon River basin and the haunting site of Machu Picchu. The itinerary covered Peru by foot, bus, train, and air. The lodging and food were varied and interesting. I'd highly recommend this trip to others.

A wonderful look at history and culture of Peru. Well organized and makes excellent use of time to experience much of what Peru has to offer. Great contrasts between people of the cities, mountains and the Amazon.
