The trip was well organized with virtually all pre-arranged elements (airport transfers, guided tours, hotel arrangements, etc.) coming off without a hitch. It allowed us to be totally at ease and just enjoy the experience from beginning to end. The guides were some of the most knowledgeable and friendly I have encountered and we developed a great relationship with each as we learned so much about the people and history of Peru. It was exactly the experience we hoped for when booking it.
We booked private guided tours and the experience was great. The guides were very responsive to our interests and needs. We learned so much and enjoyed a far more intimate experience than going with a large group. While Machu Picchu was incomparable, we loved every aspect of the our sacred valley experience. The Horseback ride to Moray on the wonderful Peruvian Paso Horses was particularly memorable and enjoyable. The early morning misty sunrise and clear evening sunset in Machu Picchu were amazing and the climb of Montana Machupicchu was particularly challenging and thus very rewarding. We also loved Ollantaytambo and our visit with the local craftspeople in Chinchero.
Our unguided trip to Paraguay was to visit our son, who is serving in the Peace Corp. We also found Paraguay very enchanting. It has little tourist infrastructure and the cost of entry is a bit daunting but it is genuine and unspoiled. Trying the cold herbal Mate in the park and sharing it in the Compo with friends of our son was truly unique and enjoyable.
I would spend another day in Machu Picchu. It requires a day just to take in the scope of what is available to explore at the site and town. Another full day would have allowed more time for exploration of Machu Picchu and more time in Aguas Calientes, which is a charming town, and the Inkaterra hotel, which offered lots of experiences as well.
