Travel much and travel often

We had the most amazing time on our tour. We were pushed physically and rewarded by the views, the people and the experiences.
It's easy to come to Peru and be a tourist, but it's not easy to fully emerge yourself in the culture and go with the flow. The weather changes, the days are long, 47 miles ... Continue Reading

Alpaca steak is a little tough

May is supposed to be one of the driest months in Peru, we had nearly a week of rain. You would think it would put a damper on the situation (rimshot), but quite the contrary.
We had an incredible group of inca trail guides, horsemen, and cooks who made the journey something to remember for the rest of ... Continue Reading

The Salkantay trek was a great adventure. We started with a steep climb to Humantay lake.
The view was spectacular. The rest of the day was all uphill to our first camp site. The elevation was rough on most in our group. I had a intense headache. We were victims of bad weather and had a very cold ... Continue Reading

Llama Pichu

The first day was difficult at altitude but got better over time. I loved the company and the guide - the zip line and hot springs were great excursions in the day.

Incadible!

We really enjoyed our inca trail! . The food was incredibly good (especially when considered the circumstances for cooking are not so easy along the trail). Jose, our guide, was very helpful and we also improved our spanish a great deal.
A possible improvement could be the time of the departure of our train. It will leave at ... Continue Reading
