Here’s just five of over 10,000 reasons why our guests keep coming back for more:

DANNY, OUR TOUR GUIDE WAS AMAZING! His knowledge of Peru was outstanding and it was like taking a tour with a good friend. He was extremely patient, well organised, and on top of everything. The itinerary was well thought out and maximised the most of our time in Peru. I’ve done a fair amount of travelling, but this was the first time I did a tour. I have no regrets and I would definitely book with Costsaver again! I loved how everything was taken care of for us. From the transportation to and from the airport, to baggage collection between flights from one location to the next, to any tickets we needed, Danny, our tour guide, took care of everything. It allowed me to thoroughly enjoy the entire trip and not have to worry about any of the planning behind the scenes PERU EXPLORER

Brandon O. from USA

AMAZING TRIP WITH BREATHTAKING NATURE experiences, delicious food, & fantastic hotel choices. We had the time of our lives and would go back in a heartbeat. I’ve been recommending to all of our friends. Great memories made while zip lining, horseback riding, hiking in the rain, touring El Trapiche and relaxing in hot springs. Loved it! COSTA RICA ADVENTURE

Megan F. from USA

BOTH THE TOUR DIRECTOR DREW AND DRIVER JULIO WERE EXCELLENT, always looking out for the people on tour. I would definitely recommend it and will look to travel with them again SPECTACULAR CANYONS AND NATIONAL PARKS

Saul from USA

OUR TOUR DIRECTOR ROBINA WAS EXCELLENT. Nothing was too much for her, she was amazingly attentive to all the passengers on the bus. Very bubbly personality, always smiling and it is clear she absolutely loves her country and her job. Al the bus driver again I could not fault him, he often shuttled us around to and from town. The bus was immaculate and I remember looking outside my hotel window late one afternoon to see him washing the bus after a very long days drive. From start to fi nish the tour, including the amazing cruise, was wonderful. I especially liked how we stayed 2 days in each area. Plenty of time to explore or do optional extras. There were lots of eating options and our tour Director always had good ideas on where to eat and very reasonably priced. Much better than a previous tour I went on where meals were included. WONDERS OF THE CANADIAN ROCKIES WITH ALASKA CRUISE

THE TOUR GUIDE AND BUS DRIVER WERE GREAT. Saw many things and loved the trip. It’s the people that make the trip and was with a great group. LANDSCAPES OF EASTERN CANADA & USA

Arriving into Ecuador for what will be an unforgettable and utterly rewarding 5 days, meet up with your ME to WE representative at the airport and then head to your hotel. Hotel: Wyndham Quito Day 2

QUITO – MINGA LODGE

3

Your journey today will begin with an ascent through the highlands then descend to the Amazon basin. Traveling by motorised canoe you'll travel down the Rio Napo, keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife before arriving at Minga Lodge, your luxury jungle home for the next 3 nights. Meet the local team to learn about the WE Village and inhabitants you will be helping over the next few days. Then enjoy a delicious home cooked meal using local ingredients, before spending an evening getting to know a few key Spanish phrases that will stand you in good stead for your time here. (B, L, D) Hotel: Minga Lodge Day 3

MINGA LODGE

You'll be up early this morning to enjoy a sunrise hike into the Amazon rainforest. After breakfast at Minga Lodge, you'll then meet the Kichwa people; the community you'll be supporting

over your time in the Amazon. Get involved in a community project this afternoon, advancing your skill set and supporting the community in the process. Work could involve digging a well, laying foundations for a health centre or working with a member of the community. After a fulfilling day, dinner tonight will be well deserved as you tuck into a family style feast and swap stories around the table. (B, L, D) Day 4

MINGA LODGE

This morning you'll continue work on the sustainable development project you began yesterday, swapping stories and gaining insight from local community members who will be working alongside you. After another tasty lunch back at the Lodge, you'll join a local farmer to help carry out some of their daily activities. This evening and after enjoying a dinner on the banks of the Rio Napo, you'll head out with a cultural guide for an Amazon night hike. (B, L, D) Day 5

DEPART MINGA LODGE – QUITO

You'll be saying a sad goodbye to Minga Lodge and its welcoming community of people as you head back to Quito today. Travelling by boat to Coca, you'll then catch a flight to Quito. (B)
