Today is our travel day, giving us time to think. So much preparation has gone into this trip. I find half the fun of traveling is the research done beforehand. With all this reading and comparing of other tour companies came hundreds of questions that were answered promptly and professionally by phone and by e-mail with the staff of Adventure Life. I did notice that we went through a few coordinators as those we dealt with before were promoted but the transition between coordinators was seamless. We made our own flight arrangements to take advantage of miles and points to keep the cost down, but even then the cost of this trip as a private trip was very reasonable. We chose the exact order of where we wanted to go and where we wanted to stay, what train we wanted to take and if we wanted to make an extra "shop stop". Maybe it's no wonder our coordinators were promoted after dealing with us! I'll be glad to get off the plane and walk across the street to sleep until our morning flight to Cusco.
