We paid for this hike in advance and were worried that it might be too difficult for us. We are so glad we did it! We went with our excellent guide, James, twoworldsperutours.com

Every part of this city is special and you cant help wondering about how difficult it must have been to build it.

One of the best sites we saw, situated near the end of the Inca Trail. The views are incredible and it’s very peaceful. Not to be missed it’s wonderful
