In May we spent most of two weeks with a wonderful experience in Peru, We visited Lima, Cusco, Ollantaytambo, and Maccu Piccue (Aquas Caliente)
We provided Escaped to Peru with the number of days we wanted in each city and left the arrangements to them.
Our visit started with a slight hiccup in Lima-we were travelling with another coupld and they cancelled at the last minute-our hotel cancelled both rooms but within minutes of our arrival they provided us with an upgrade to the Presidential Suite as all other rooms were booked. Our ground agent and the hotel were magnificent. We
Our hotel was the Belmond Milaflores and it was exceptional with very professional courteous staff and excellent dining.
We travelled from there to Cusco and the Aranwa Hotel which was extremely comfortable, good staff and good food.
The next stop was the highlight of the hotel situation-the Rio Sagrado in the Sacred Valley was outstanding-our Casita was surrounded by flowers full of hummingbirds and a few wrens with a private patio looking out over a beautiful pasture leading up the sacred river and on the far side a mountain wall.
If we had known how much we would enjoy this place we would have stayed there to more days.
Again the food and staff were of the highest order
From there we went on the Hiram Bingham train to Aquas Calientes and the Maccu Piccu Pueblo hotel. A very spacious comfortable room surrounded by patio area with feeders, hummingbirds, orchids galore and wonderful vegetation. Food was very good with attentive staff.
Our next area was back un at the only disappointing hotel-the Casa Andina was a disappointment but it was only one night and no great inconvenience.
Through our trip we had guides provided that were excellent-they were all local and spoke English very well and each cities guide was very professional and knowledgable. We were looked after by the ground agent on every transfer-no waiting -always on time and eager to help. We are experienced travellers and only on one other trip in our 45 years+ of travelling were the arrangements as well looked after as this one.
