Great Trip thanks to Peru for Less

My son and I and two of our friends just finished a wonderful 2-week trip to Peru including 3 days in the Amazon jungle, 3 days in Cusco and the Sacred Valley, a 3-day intensive hike on the Inca Trail and a 1 day guided tour of Machu Picchu. After our 4 days of hiking and tenting, a day of relaxation at the Inka Terra in Aguas Calientes was wonderful. Actually, we were so relaxed that my son and I opted to go back to Machu Picchu again to enjoy the beauty of it when we felt refreshed. After another night in Cusco, we took a beautiful and relaxing train ride to Puno to explore Lake Titicaca. The train was very nice although the scenery on the way was not quite what we expected. The whole trip was customized to what we requested, however, and it was just the 4 of us on most of the tours. Our guides were all very knowledgable and interesting. All connections and transfers went through perfectly. We were very pleased with Peru for Less and with Silvana, our agent.

Hello, Thank you so much for your advise. I am thinking about go to Peru, but I am not so sure about that. Could you talk a little bit more regarding the Machu Picchu tour?, how did you do to buy the ticket and what is the things that someone needs to prepare to do this trip? thanks.

My father and I booked our LAST minute trip to Peru for the holidays.(December 27th 2012 to January 5th). I have contacted Peru For Less since I was very satisfied with them with Latin for Less with my last trip to Brasil in 2009. Mark Breen-Lopez finalized my interinary for my amazing trip to Peru.

We flew to Lima - stayed at a nice 2 star hotel Casa Wayra at MiraFlores area (very nice area) - we were walking distance to nearby attractions.

We did a city tour of Lima in the afternoon. The next 4 days we had stayed in Cusco city. We had stayed in the heart of downtown Cusco at a 3 star hotel Plaza De Emperor. It is perfect location to walk around the city and visit the museos on our free time. Mark set up the tour for Cusco city, Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu. The train ride to Machu Picchu is very nice and relaxing- we had the vistadome seats. New Years Eve at CuscoCity at the main plaza is FUN!!!(New Years day dont forget to wear Yellow for good luck, Redfor love,andGreen for money) Then,we had a bus tour from Cusco to Puno. The bus tour was comfortable and includes the tour stops at different site and buffet lunch. Then, the next day we had a tour of Lake Titicaca. I would say that is the best ending of our trip to very the FLOATING islands and meeting the wonderful people.

I would highly recommend Peru for Less, especially since I had booked our trip less than 1 week of leaving from Detroit. It was very smooth with our pick up drivers from airport,hotels, etc. - with the travel representatives on each city to welcome us.

Everything went smoothly for a great rememerable Daughter-Father trip!

If you are going in the rainy season - It does not rain that much at Cusco- Just bring warm clothes (but there are natives sweaters to buy, buy bottle water there- due to high elavations, and have money for tips), read books of the city too, and brush on your spanish too!!

Thank you Mark and Peru 4 Less for well organized trip.
