MORE INFORMATION ABOUT PERUOur returning guests don't just like Peru, they love it. Absolutely adore it. They've written extensively about its charms, highlighting a visit to the iconic mountain top citadel of Machu Picchu with the renowned Alfedo Mormontoy. The former resident archaeologist revealed small, little known details about the blockbuster site that spoke volumes about Inca life - a perfect match of dramatic location and top-notch insider knowledge.
And that's just the start. They've enthused about a private recital we arranged in a converted monastic chapel where traditional instruments included animal bone and feathers; praised our guide Luis Silvera, a former professional drummer who revealed Cusco's best live music, and recalled an exclusive lunch in a private hacienda overlooking the Sacred Valley with a tour of the owner's wonderful Pre-Columbian art collection, followed by a private weaving demonstration.
