KELLY – MACHU PICCHU

“Really loved this trip. We went to Lima first and surprisingly really enjoyed it, particularly the excellent food which we had heard so much about. Then we flew to Cusco which was so beautiful and wish we had spent more time there.

Then we took the train to Machu Picchu which completely lived up to our expectations in every way and we all totally loved it. Into Peru were excellent at planning our trip and the running of it was faultless. Excellent service, wonderful guides and couldn’t have wish for a better time, thank you.”
