This family of four, along with their friend, returned a week ago from Peru on Our Sacred Lands of the Incas adventure. They had a fabulous time and below are some of their comments from their trip.
Our trip to Peru was one for the record books! Probably some of the best scenery since I traveled to the South Island of New Zealand. Didn't hurt that the weather was sunny and gorgeous every day. All of the tour operators, restaurants, drivers and hotels were perfect. I have a new favorite drink, the Pisco Sour. Really loved the Monasterio and the Inkaterra in Machu Picchu. The buffet lunch at Machu Picchu was spectacular.
I will definitely consider using your travel company again and will refer you to any friends for their travel needs. Thank you so much."
Here's the family's full trip evaluation:
Sacred Lands of the Incas...
Let me start by saying that seeing the Kuang Si Waterfall was part of an incredible three-week custom trip to Southeast Asia with Wildland Adventures that I just returned from this week. We visited the Kuang Si Falls on our last day in Laos and it was the perfect way to wrap up our time there. The falls consist of a 200 ft cascading travertine waterfall with several small falls and pools found below. The falls are about a 35-minute drive from Luang Prabang and then just a couple minutes of walking will get you there. This is a very easy spot to get to, which means it can get a little busy... So, make sure you get there early to really be able to take in all of its beauty.
Starting from the entrance you'll walk by several pools on your way up to the falls, each one with its own variation of...
Fourth of July is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with a special festive drink from my favorite destination- Fernet from Argentina!? One of my first memories of going out with friends in Argentina, was on a warm night in March- Argentina’s late summer. A well-intentioned friend handed me a glass of dark medicinal, smelling liquor, better known as Fernet, and then proceeded to flood the glass with Coca-Cola. “Toma! Es nuestra bebida nacional! Drink! It's our national drink” I took a gulp. The bitter flavor of Fernet perfectly complimented by the sweet, fizzy cola is refreshing and absolutely bizarre- it took me years of living in Argentina to finally appreciate and, dare I say, LIKE, Fernet! Though my first experience with trying Fernet was one mostly of utter shock at the complex and foreign flavor, I have grown to love it and associate it with...
Daryl and his grandson just returned from a customized Sacred Lands of the Incas adventure where they not only visited Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, they added on time doing a fly-over of the Nazca lines and sand boarding on the high dunes surrounding Ica, in the wine country of Peru.
"Our trip was outstanding in all respects, starting with the various guides and including the accommodations. Machu Picchu was of course the highlight. I came away both amazed by what I witnessed and convinced they had backhoes and frontend loaders in the 1500’s. I just can’t imagine they could do it any other way. The Nazca lines were impressive although a disappointment for my grandson, as he is vision impaired and was unable to see them.........I had been concerned about that from the beginning. He bounced back though and had an amazing time the next day...
Paula and Frank just returned from their Hiker’s Patagonia trip to Chile and Argentina- their FOURTH Wildland Adventure! Here they share their personal highlights, thoughts on guides and advice for future travelers. Please enjoy some of their incredible pictures of Patagonia that truly convey the remote, wild and magnificent splendor that this untamed austral landscape has to offer.
"We enjoyed the hiking experiences the most. Torres del Paine and the Fitzroy range were our major goals, and we were lucky enough to have 2 out of 3 days in each place for good visibility. I enjoyed Chile more than Argentina for the other aspects of the trip. The hotel in Santiago was excellent. The food in all of Chile was great – especially the vegetarian options. The accommodations at Patagonia Camp were perfect. We also liked the room at Alta Vista, in El Calafate, Argentina. All the people along...
