What People Are Saying... about the Destinations
“Getting in early and having sunrise alone time amidst the ruins was magical. Other travelers that I tell about our experience are always amazed we weren't constantly amongst crowds like they were.”
"I appreciated the balance between simply admiring the beauty and scale of this sacred site, while also learning about our current understanding of it’s history and how that extends into today’s culture.”
“The local guides provided rich cultural interpretations, generously sharing music, spirit and ancient stories. The grandeur and precision of the stonework is infused with magic and inspires awe. It was an authentic experience that touched our hearts deeply”
“It was heart-warming to be invited into the homes of Laurie’s friends, to connect with their families and experience their culture directly. Watching them weave was mesmerizing, and it increased my appreciation for the effort involved.”
“The weaving village, Chawaitiri, is a highlight. We were able to witness the whole process of producing the finest alpaca textiles and share a meal with a weaving family in their humble home. The textiles of Peru are truly amazing, and offer one of the best keepsakes of a Peruvian odyssey.”
“It’s hard to decide which was more amazing, admiring in the beauty of the lush foliage and tropical birds while soaking in Lares’ mineral-rich pools, or the epic van ride to get there- We went up over the glacial capped Andean Peaks, thru herds of alpacas, ancient villages, and down towards the jungles beyond!”
“This was my favorite town we visited; it felt comfortable, while still being foreign enough to me to be exciting. The Market has an incredible diversity of vibrant art, handmade crafts, and fresh produce; all sold by friendly local vendors. A wonderful place to base the first half of the journey"
