We’d always dreamt of visiting Peru and getting our first look at the fabled Machu Picchu and the history of its ancient habitants. Growing up, we heard and read many incredible stories of the Incas and their culture. Visiting this vast empire was a childhood dream.
At first, we didn’t know who to reach out to for help on planning this trip. We were overwhelmed by so many places and didn’t know where to start. There were so many choices, but luckily, we found this travel company through Zicasso. Based on what interested us and the time frame that worked for us, our travel agent created a super-efficient schedule without any time wasted. She talked us through her proposal to make sure the itinerary fits our goal for this trip.
Overall, our travel agent's careful planning made this vacation a total breeze for us to follow. We had a lot of outdoor activities, sightseeing, and cultural experiences with locals and above all, we ate delicious food. Peru is now a culinary heaven for foodies alike!!! Most pleasantly, our agent matched us up with a knowledgeable local tour guide. He guided us through our vacation and took care of all the nuances of travel. This guide is a local Peruvian with strong roots in the community. She understands the ancient Incan culture and history so well and always patiently answered our questions. Our college-aged kids really enjoyed this once-in-a-lifetime adventure as well. I think without her caring personality and guided experience, we wouldn't have enjoyed the trip so much. Our driver was the nicest guy ever who puts a lot of transportation issue at ease for us. All the worries about altitude, logistics, and food were well taken care of by the team! We just had to show up and enjoy the day.
Prior to the trip, we heard so many stories about the high-altitude sickness, but our agent planned our trip in such a way that it did not affect us at all, and we were able to enjoy the entire vacation thoroughly!
Flying out of Cusco on the last flight of the day turned out to be a not-so-good idea. It is easily cancelled due to poor visibility and when it does get cancelled, the rescheduled flight is often the next day. We would schedule an earlier flight and enjoy Lima a little more.
