Wonders of Peru & Bolivia, May 2014

Tour was well organized except for the last day in LaPlaz, Bolivia. We arrived late (4:30 pm) on the Wednesday and our next day (final day) in LaPlaz was a "free day". As we were warned about the dangers in the City, passport safety etc. etc. we were on our own that day. I think something should have been organized, such as a tours. As it was, we all have to arrange a tour on our own. Our tour guide left at 6:00 am and we were basically on our own. A group of us did arrange our own tour, but it would have made more sense to include this last day with an organized tour through Intrepid and/or Peregine.

Wonders of Peru & Bolivia, February 2014
I had a good holiday overall, though in part this was because I was determined to make the best of it despite issues that arose. Our tour leader (Jhonn Smith Gomez) was fantastic, and did as good a job as anyone could have in the circumstances, with there being various problems along the way for some/most passengers on this trip - predominantly issues with incorrect and/or out of date information in people's itineraries meaning aspects of the trip did not meet people's expectations. For me the major issue was the fact that I booked an 'Intrepid comfort-style' trip and expected like the previous Intrepid comfort trips I've been on that I'd be travelling with a range of people mostly around my own age - typically in their 30's and 40's, maybe one of two in their 50's.........instead however it turned out that I was instead on a 'Peregrine' tour which has a much older demographic and which I would not have booked had I known.
