We took our first Imprint Tour (to Peru) last November and will certainly travel with them again. The philosophy is definitely similar to that of RS, as was the mix of free and scheduled time. Although Reid was on the trip, our local guide, a Peruvian named Diana, was our de facto tour leader and was absolutely superb. My guess is that that Reid’s goal is to always have experienced tour leaders (for example, Sarah Murdoch of RS) in addition to top notch, in-country guides. Hotel quality was similar to what we expected on our RS tours. The company is not large and tours seem to fill quickly. All others in our group had travelled with Imprint before – everyone was delightful. Of the 22 in our group, I would estimate that four were in their 30s to 40s and the remainder late 50s, 60s and early 70s. Several were single travelers. This tour did require a good level of fitness for climbing steps to the Amazonian Lodge and scrambling around Machu Picchu, etc. – a higher level of fitness than the RS tours we’ve been on.
