WOW!... if you want to get off the beaten track and avoid all the tourists on the Inca trail this is the way to go.

We had such a fantastic time, the guide was so much fun and treated us like old friends, and the porters and horsemen were brilliant.

Incredible views, and to be in the middle of the Andes seeing small communities of peruvians surviving in the wilds. Pretty cold, and we felt the altitude but thats what makes its so exciting.

We did the trek with dolatinamerica.com and they suggested loads of adventure trips (rafting Urubamba river, bungee jumping in Cuzco and cycling around moras and Moray in the Sacred valley.


All of Peru is a constant adventure.

I first went to Peru in 1981 and I fell in love with the people, history, and all the country has to offer geographically.

It can't be explained in words the beauty of Peru.



The beauty of the Andes and all it has to offer can only be understood by experiencing Peru in person.

I love Peru and would love to live in Cusco someday.
I would love to start a reachout center there.

I go to Peru when ever I can...
