We had an absolutely wonderful time in Peru this February. We are so thankful for our travel agent for making a perfect itinerary for our family of four. She was great to work with. Having read variety of things about Peru on the internet, we were extremely anxious especially for a February trip. We called our agent many times prior to the trip and she reassured us. She was always there to answer all of our questions. Her itinerary was perfect as we were gradually acclimatized to the high elevations of Cusco.
In Peru, we were very well taken care of, right from the moment we stepped out at Lima airport. At both Lima and Cusco airports, we were greeted by happy and welcoming people. In Lima, our guide was accommodating, friendly and funny. In Cusco, our guide and our driver made us feel very comfortable. They accommodated all of our requests. At no point of time were we rushed to do things. The Cusco guide is well informed and sincere in her tasks. She is clearly passionate about her country and its rich culture and heritage. She gave us detailed accounts of Incan history, artifacts and ruins. She got very friendly with our two kids. We had wonderful time hiking to Sungate and Inca bridge. We felt like we had travelled in the past. The ruins are spectacular and the travel team made a life time experience. The hotels chosen were excellent. Our agent also booked our lunches in wonderful restaurants with ethnic Peruvian ambiance. Our family had special time interacting with weaver family in Chincheros. Overall Cusco, Ollantaytambo, Urubamba are wonderful places to visit. It does take you to different time period. We were told by many to avoid the month of February due to rainy season but ended up having a lovely weather the entire week. The highlight of our Machu Picchu trip was seeing a rainbow over the ruins. This has been an unforgettable experience for us!
Visiting Cusco, Ollayantatambu ruins and of course Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu is enthralling experience and a must visit place. Meeting and interacting with native people was an enjoyable experience. The Vistadome train ride to Machu Picchu with impromptu 'fashion show' of Alpaca clothing by the train employees was totally unexpected and fun.
We would not change anything in the itinerary, but perhaps add Manu or Puerto Maldonado and Lake Titicaca. We are also thinking of doing the 4 day Inca trail some day.
