This trek is a REAL adventure and for me, was a decidedly POSITIVE experience So many unpredictable elements... the weather, one's ability to physiologically adapt to the environment, the capacity of fellow trekkers, safety of the terrain, need to rely on the expertise of the local teams with limitations to communication.... The planning for this adventure began 18 months prior to our trip. Alison coached us through the prep both in terms of equipment and physical fitness. She acquired the permits and tickets, set up accommodations, chose restaurants and selected the support team for the trek itself making it nearly effortless and more importantly stress free for those of us participating. We acclimated in Cusco enjoying the local cuisine, touring historic sites and Inca Ruins, shopping and learning about Peru and its people. Then came the trek... to which there is a very personal journey independent of the group dynamic. The scenery is awe inspiring, steep mountain slopes rising up from lush valleys, Lamas, sheep, cattle and horses roaming freely, wild orchids, hummingbirds, crops growing on terraces, salt evaporation ponds, snow capped Andean peaks, pack horses ( mules) and porters... We hiked for 6-8 hours a day without a dull moment. Alison fostered a positive social environment acting as a liaison with the locals. Alison encouraged us, ensured our safety as much as is possible and celebrated our daily accomplishments with us. The trip exceeded my expectations in many ways! LOLA gets a strong recommendation from me!!!

My second trip with LOLA, and hope to do many more! Exceptional organisation, preparation and day to day running of the trip. The cycling was challenging, as expected, the accommodation, food, scenery and even the weather was superb. This is the best of small group touring: brilliantly executed trips with a specific focus, in relative comfort with like-minded people. Very highly recommended.

This was the first of I hope many trips with Live Out Loud Adventures. We went on the Patagonia (Chile) trip - so much fun, and remarkable in many ways. Alison curates the trip personally; working so hard sourcing flights, hotels (2 of the most stunning we have ever stayed in!), tour guides, restaurants, novel experiences... She brings together like-minded fun, smart people, with a spirit of adventure, appreciation of fine things, and wonderful humour - we see each other regularly! Alison is absolutely brilliant in her ability to pull together a magical trip!

I have completed 2 trips with LOLA: Kilimanjaro and the West Coast Trail. Both experiences were absolutely extraordinary! Everything from the trip planning to the actual treks was first class. John and Alison, our leaders for Kilimanjaro were excellent, as was the crew who joined us from Moshi on the climb. It was an amazing experience and one I will never forget. Our LOLA guides, Teri and Graham for the West Coast Trail were also excellent. Again, meticulous planning and flawless delivery of the trip. I have booked and am looking forward to my next trip with LOLA - the Fisherman's Trail! I would highly recommend this organization.
