There is no place in this world quite like Machu Picchu. This was certainly the high point of our tour. But I have to say that the Incan sites closer to Cusco and in the Sacred Valley of the Incas were also stunning. Like Saqsayhuaman, it is amazing that those gigantic rocks could be so perfectly put together. The folks at Travel 1 were very helpful, and the service was top flight.
We had a fantastic time. I will recommend this package to all my friens. Machu Picchu is incredible.
