I had a great time on Adventure Life's 7-day journey to Machu Picchu. It was truly a journey, filled with the natural grandeur of the Andes, historic ruins and a blend of the Inca and Spanish cultures. I planned the trip in less than 3 weeks and the Adventure Life staff was there every step of the way to make sure I could make the trip when I needed to. Our tour guide was a native of Cusco and knew every inch of the city and the road to Machu Picchu. He even had good restaurant recommendations for our stay in Cusco (Nonna's and A Mi Manera). The hotel accommodations along the way were very fitting for the journey. I particularly liked the lodge in Ollantaytambo and the hotel in Machu Picchu was a wonderful surprise. The tour kept us moving and featured different modes of transportation (plane, train, bus, van), which built up the suspense to the final destination. Most people probably take the tour in the summer, but I went in December during the off-season when the crowds are not as intense. I highly recommend this tour and the Adventure Life crew. They provided all the necessary information to make for a smooth and enjoyable trip. Muchas gracias for the memories!
