I went to Peru this summer and had a fantastic time. I felt well supported before the trip and upon arrival. The team in Cusco – especially Betshi – were great and helped us out whenever we needed them. I really liked the accommodation. I spent two weeks in Quillabamba as well and had a fantastic time, again though a good level of Spanish is required to get by. The discovery trips were great fun, especially the Salkantay trek and going to Pongo. Overall it was a fantastic trip. I want to reiterate that I had a great time and found all the team extremely helpful! Thanks for a great summer!
I am back from my elective and had a great time!
I'm just back from Choquequirao, which was an amazing experience; although it was quite possibly the toughest experience of my life. The trek is certainly not for the faint-hearted but thankfully I survived in one piece.
