60's group-birthday celebration at Machu Picchu We were a group of 7 friend celebrating our 60th's in Cusco.

She is the main responsible in makung our visit to Machu Picchu a wonderful and unforgettable experience.

Meaningful and fantastic experience The tour guide is bravo and patient, and yet knowledgeable. He will answer all the questions related to the local culture if you do that. And the schedule is not tired at all but overall it is satisfying. Great memory and meaningful experience at Peru.
