Come for the wonders. Stay for the history.
Climb Inca terraces and wander colonial towns. Meet farmers whose ways haven’t changed for centuries. Learn the difference between llamas, alpacas and vicuñas. Ride the train to Inca citadel Machu Picchu, and explore Cusco, 11,154 feet above sea level (both of them UNESCO World Heritage sites.) Ponder the swift demise of the Incas and the unlikely success of Spanish conquistadors. Hear also about Peru’s recent history and current crises. Of course you will enjoy the beautiful Sacred Valley. You will also long cherish the personal encounters and thoughtful conversations that you find there.
