We had a wonderful time on out recent vacation with our travel agency to Peru and Ecuador. The Sacred Valley is amazing. Those Incans really knew how to build. We were met by guides at the airports in Lima and Cusco. Natalie showed is the Sacred Valley and was very knowledgeable. We had a guide on our hike on the Incan Trail from mile 104 to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu. He was an excellent guide. He, also, was really informative. He kept a very reasonable pace.
Then we flew to Quito where we were met by our guides. We spent the next week exploring the highlands of Ecuador with them. It was a pleasure getting to know our guides and their culture. They took us to several cities, some Incan ruins, and the equator. We drove to Guayaquil on the coast for our flight to the Galapagos.
There we stayed on a catamaran and sailed to many islands in the Galapagos. We snorkeled, hiked, kayaked, and rode in zodiaks exploring the flora and the fauna. The staff on the catamaran saw to our every need. The food was delicious, the ship was spotless, and the staff was friendly and courteous.
Our South America travel agency made sure we were taken care of and had a wonderful trip.
The most memorable part of our trip was the time we spent in the Galapagos. The most enjoyable part of our trip was traveling with our guides in Ecuador.
I think I would try to travel a bit more leisurely. We had allotted three weeks for the trip, and really saw a lot in three weeks, however, it would have been nice to spend a little more time in some of the locations.
