Highlights include... The incredible scenery of our Quenua Sundur Valley hike and camping at the ruins -- we had that spectacular place to ourselves and the stars that night were unforgettable. Sunset on Lake Titicaca from the top of Amanti Island -- our guide said he's never seen one so awesome. Spending time with Don Francisco and friend around our campfire and talking with others in his community. Chichero weaving demonstration was a real treat. The chance to meet many joyful,hard-working and delighful local Peruvians. Our Sacred Valley tour was outstanding and Juan showed us all the places we asked about. Machu Picchu was amazing and having two days there to fully enjoy it worked out perfectly. We had perfect weather (for the whole trip actually), and did all the hikes we wanted to do. The Huayna Picchu hike was WILD!
Enjoyed working with Erin to put together our customized trip. She is very enthusiastic and quick to respond. Cusco hotel San Agustin Dorada was very nice and the location was excellent. El Mapi at Machu Piccu Pueblo was wonderful. Puno hotel Q'Elqatani was fine. Camping locations were incredible and the setups and service made it very comfortable. Homestay settings were both breathtaking locations and very comfortable as well. Food was good and plentiful. Our Sacred Valley picnic lunch was excellent. Camping meals were nicely prepared and ranged from good basic food to delicious gourmet. Our kayak day lunch was excellent and the location was stunning. Home stay meals were very basic, but interesting. Our tour was extraordinary and I am still amazed at all we experienced.
