We just returned from a 10 day trip to Peru with 15 family members. Our agent worked with me to plan every detail of the trip. Everything went according to schedule and without a single hitch! Our agent lined up a trip to satisfy every single member in our group ages 71 to 10. We will never forget this trip of a lifetime! The trip was planned so that we could adjust to the elevation appropriately. We started with 3 days, 2 nights in the Amazon jungle. The resort we stayed at and the activities planned were awesome! The food was good too. The kids, ages 10-18 loved that part of the trip the best. We moved on to the Sacred Valley for 4 days, day 1 full day touring at Pisac ruins, Ollantaytambo ruins, day 2 full day touring included Chincero weaving demonstration, Moray ruins & Mara salt mines, day 3 was horseback riding for 11 in our group and the other 4 went whitewater rafting on the Urubamba river, and day 4 was our trip to Machu Picchu. We moved on to Cusco for 2 nights. Our first full day in Cusco, we did a 1/2 day tour, and a late afternoon chocolate making event for 1 hour at the Choco Museo. The next morning we left for Lima, spent 1 night in Lima and did a 1/2 day city tour. We had the afternoon free and headed to the airport by 7:00 pm for our flights back to the U.S. We were met by representatives at every location at the times stated. All our tours were private for our group and the guides were awesome. The food was so tasty throughout our trip. Our agent made reservations in advance for our dinners. Be flexible. We are used to eating lunches around noon, but while touring, most lunches were around 2-3 pm in the afternoon. We did have protein bars that we packed in our backpack. Bonus item working with this agent....my husband had requested a surprise birthday cake for me at the restaurant in our Sacred Valley hotel. Our agent personally ordered a cake from a known bakery in Cusco and drove 1.5-2 hours to our hotel to personally deliver it with a nice birthday present! That is going way above and beyond! It was a pleasure meeting him in person! I would not hesitate to recommend this agent and his company for any travel in South America!
Everything was memorable so it's hard for me to pick. Definitely the Amazon, and the ruins in the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu!
We had 10 days to fit a lot in. I'd say having a a little more down time would have been helpful, but we were not willing to extend our trip at the time we planned it. I would drop the Lima tour and just travel back to Lima from Cusco and fly out in the evening. By the time we were done with everything, we were ready to head home. I think a trip to Lake Titicaca would have been nice to fit in if we had a couple of extra days to spare.
