This is the first time we have done a custom trip such as this. It was a pleasure working with this South American travel company to plan our trip. We had not been to South America before, so didn't know what to expect. Our travel company put together a package for us that met our desires for our trip. They were able to answer all the questions that we had prior to departure. Everything went exactly as planned. Our South American guides were wonderful. It was so nice to have someone to help us every step of the way. The accommodations they selected for us were wonderful. We are so happy we chose to do a customized travel trip to both Machu Picchu and the Galapagos. The trip was such a wonderful adventure.
The most memorable parts of the trip were hiking to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu on a misty morning and then watching the clouds lift and the sun shine down on Machu Picchu. Truly an unforgettable experience. Also, visiting the Galapagos had been a desire of mine for a long time. Seven days on the Cormorant and visiting some of the more remote stops with the variety of wild life we saw was truly unforgettable. Two very different experiences, but both were equally amazing.
I would not try to do a tour of Cusco on the day we arrived. I would add an additional day and spend a full day in Cusco after visiting Machu Picchu. This was what was recommended, however, at the time we felt we didn't want to add another day. It all worked out fine, but tiring.
