Magical experience - before I articulate why this was such an amazing experience I think it's important to provide some context. My family and I are very experienced travelers and have been to over 50 countries across the world for both business and pleasure. We were hesitant to use a travel service, as we always handle everything ourselves and have done so for 20+ years. However, this year when it came time to plan our big, annual family trip my wife and I were just so exhausted from what has been an intense period of extended business travel - in short, we wanted someone to plan our trip for us and not have to worry about anything - and at the same time, ensure we would get the most from our experience. From my first call with this travel agent I knew we had hit the jackpot in terms of finding someone that had truly unique knowledge of this amazing country and would be able to customize an itinerary that best matched up to the interests of our family. We build a custom itinerary together - well, we mainly reacted to suggestions and information sent to us - over a a few weeks until we felt we had outlined an optimal agenda for ourselves. The execution of the trip was flawless - everything went as advertised. We didn't have to think at all - and that left more time for enjoying the sights which included Lima and several towns throughout the Sacred Valley - culminating in a visit to Machu Picchu. The guides who looked after us during our journey were incredible. All of them were truly "local" and were able to bring to life the amazing things we would see and experience - putting things in perspective, in context and providing an experience impossible to obtain on your own. I cannot emphasize this enough - this goes well beyond language (3 out of the 4 of us speak Spanish) barriers - this is about having guides that know their history, have been formally educated in the subjects that they are speaking to - and at the same time can read your family dynamic and alter the pace to best suit you. We have been to many amazing places in the world - this trip ranks at or among the very best as it delivered a truly magical experience that we will never forget. Thank you to our agent for your guidance and counsel in the planning phase and thank you for delivering on your commitments in executing a flawless experience!
Time spent in the Sacred Valley with our guide - she is a superstar and brought unique perspective in terms of making the journey both fun and educational. She also made sure she engaged everyone in our group - very good read of family/people dynamics.
