We are a couple in the mid sixties that traveling to Bogota, Colombia for personal reasons
have decided to use this opportunity and visit also Machu Picchu, Peru and the Galapagos in Ecuador.
We made all the arrangements (except the international flights) through a small tour operator : Latin Discover from Costa Rica and we don't regret our decision.
Our focal point - Mauricio Guzman has put together the best plan for us in the time constraint we have asked him,has been most cooperative with changes and payments arrangements and has been available on line all the time,attentive to our comments.
In Peru,the local tour operator chosen, Lima Tours has performed very well,all the pick ups were on time,all the guides were knowledgeable and passionate about the Inca history and the trains were a pleasant surprise.
Our 5 days tour included Cusco,The Inca Sacred Valley,Machu Picchu and Waynapichu.
Most of the hotels - Ruinas in Cusco and El Mapi in Aguas Calientes were very good,Casona de Yukay less so.
The climb of Waynapichu was the most exciting part,although it is very difficult and it is not
suitable for every one - it should be specified when ordering the tour.
All in all it was a most rewarding (and demanding) experience.
