Is there pork in this?

This trip truly was a trip of a life time. The salkantay trek was filled with views about history, archeology, and spirit. Our guides made our group, most of who we didn't know each other, a more close knit group that made the trip even more warm. I don't eat pork and our whole the team made everything accommodating to ... Continue Reading

Highlights included the Cusco City Tour, historical sites around Cusco, and Paul's informative and hilarious commentary.

Was a weird Peruvian trip

Bottom line: good scenery, good guide, good porters, and good weather. Marco our guide was a true believer of passing on the culture and took every opportunity to instill in us the values and beliefs of the Inca. Actually one of the things he taught us was that inca meant "King" and wasn't the name of the people, but I ... Continue Reading
