    Essential Peru - Inti Raymi

    Fantastic trip, which was extremely well orgainised. A lot of travelling involved with some long journeys but in very comfortable coach with a toilet. The journeys were broken by interesting stops along the way, Our guide Guiliano was outstanding and looked after us extremely well.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Seeing Machu Picchu with my own eyes & hiking up to the Sun Gate. Overnight Homestay with such a welcoming family on Amantani Island on Lake Titicaca was an honour & privilege. Seeing the Condors soar at Colchester Canyon.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Guiliano was absolutely amazing, he really couldn’t do enough for us and was always enquiringly about our health every day to ensure that people knew how to cope with the altitude etc. He had the patience of a saint - even when dealing with perhaps the more challenging individuals in the group !! In the evenings he gave us the option of having a group meal for those that wished to do that and took us to a wide variety of local restaurants. This was totally unexpected and as a solo traveller I really appreciated that extra effort. He showed such passion and knowledge for his Country & was very good at explaining the history and ways of the Peruvian culture to us. His command of English was very impressive.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take heed of the trip notes - it can get chilly so be prepared for that. Many of the hotels we stayed in did have electric heaters in the room but not all of them work efficiently even if there is one. Restaurants can also be cold - which I didn’t think about. Our internal flightback to Lima had a baggage allowance of 23kg not 20kg but worth double checking. Money exchange was very easy to find for both US dollars, UK Sterling and Euros, in most major towns and cities. Many shops took US Dollars in payment.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Time at Machu Picchu was a bit on the tight side as the obligatory guide seemed to waste a lot of time giving us the two hour tour ( he wasn’t very good to be honest & it’s a pity Guiliano wasn’t permitted to take us around). The afternoon visit is a good idea however as the site is much less crowded. I had to choose whether to go for the Sun Gate in my free time - which I did (1hr up, 20 mins at top, 45 mins to get down (but I’m used to hiking) but then couldn’t also do the guardhouse as it was roped off by the time I got back to it. All tickets for the optional sunrise visit the following morning were sold out by the time we got to Aguas Callientes. Not sure if it could have been bought online in advance but might be something Exodus needs to look at. On your second day walk along the riverside to the local Museum its well worth the time as they have a fantastic exhibit telling both the history and discovery and clearance of the Machu Picchu site ( beside the Botanic Gardens - which aren’t up to much - but included in the entrance fee). Take ID with you as they asked for a passport or equivalent.

    Beyond my expectations

    Guiliano was absolutely amazing. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the trip! There is some long drives as stated but the views and the stops you make are unreal!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Machu Picchu is a pinch yourself can't beleive I'm here moment. My highlight of the trip!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Guiliano was fantastic. He couldn't do enough to help us all out. He was knowledgeable of his home country and had so many facts I've bought home with me. I honestly can't say enough about him. I hope any other trip I do I have a guide half what he was!
