Susan and her family just returned from our Sacred Lands of the Incas Adventure and was amazed by Machu Picchu, Cusco and the people they met while in Peru.
“I appreciated all the information that you sent and found it very helpful. We were able to get a good background from this information and the books you suggested.
Machu Picchu was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. It was truly fascinating and I am inspired to research and read more about these people and their way of life. We also found the time in and around Cusco to be fascinating. Walking through some of the villages and seeing how the people live and go about their daily activities was eye-opening. I watched one woman trudge up a hill to a village outside Cusco. She was wearing typical garb with a hat and brightly colored skirt. Her...
This family for four just got back from our Best of Peru: Machu Picchu and the Amazon adventure and had a blast with their guides!
“Hi-we had a great trip! Such a great experience and wonderful people!
Yuri -our guide in Cusco and MP was just SO wonderful to us (and we did torture him a bit!). Max, our driver, was also a very sweet guy! Nick was funny and cool--also gave us a great business idea: b-day parties for dogs as his friend in Lima does. It was so nice to have someone guiding us through the transportation system there (often subject to change we learned!)... printing the boarding passes was priceless!!
Jesus at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica was great-amazing English and such a nice guy!
Besides brief altitude and stomach illness experienced- things were very good and I thank you!
Thank you so much for everything!
Your friendly Peru...
Since kids are so immersed in electronics, I try to find things for them to do that are engaging but do not include electricity on our family adventures. My current favorites are made by SmartGames and the kids are excited to try out their Noah’s Ark Travel Game.
Pros: It’s about the size of a CD case and folds out to lap size, which means our two kids won’t get in each other’s way.
Each game comes with about 48 levels beginning with “starter” and working up to “master”. Although these games are usually designed for ages 5 and up the master levels are really hard, I have trouble with them and I like logic puzzles!
Though designed for one player, the harder levels can be solved more easily if the kids work as a team. So they can take turns for awhile, and then when they get tired of...
Call us weird, but our family does not mind a little hard work during a vacation. The important adjective here is "little." The staff at Wildland knows our preferences very well, and that is why we enjoy traveling with Wildland so much.
On December 29, 2013 we began our adventures in Costa Rica with a ride through the interior highlands of the country. Our guide made stops along the way to show us a variety of wildlife: toucans, sloths, and iguanas to name a few. After a therapeutic stop for ice cream, it was time to get serious. We arrived at La Fortuna Waterfall for some swimming. Two brave family members out of four made the decision to get their feet wet. The water in the swimming hole was chilly, but the experience to swim near a gorgeous 150 ft waterfall was unforgettable. The jovial atmosphere at La Fortuna was...
