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:

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...
This multigenerational family just returned from their Sacred Lands of the Incas trip to Peru- their 5th Wildland Adventure! Beginning in Cusco, they continued on to the lush Sacred Valley where they met with locals and hiked to remote villages and ruins. They ended their trip at the ancient and awe-inspiring citadel of Machu Picchu with a stunning and challenging hike up to the impressive Huayna Picchu.
“We signed up for this trip because Machu Picchu is a don't miss travel destination and I like outdoor trips with the kids.
Wildland's help in planning and preparation was excellent. We had all the right clothing and accessories. Reading "Turn right at Machu Picchu" was a fantastic recommendation.
Ground arrangements were prefect- always someone there to greet us. Our guide, Elkin was great. Elkin had to deal with some of us struggling during the 3 hour hike and he took my...
Often when I am working with family groups trying to decide on trips to South America I am asked something along the lines of: We are interested in Patagonia and Peru but can’t decide- what would be best for our kids and their grandparents? Do you have a trip that would work over the kids’ spring break?
Hands down I always recommend Peru. Besides the geographical factor that a trip to Peru can often be completed with one direct international flight (there are direct flights to Lima from Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and New York), the proximity of sights and in-country destinations are perfect for a 7-9 day adventure (the typical amount of time of a school vacation or break). Patagonia and even Argentina or Chile on their own take longer to get to and the distances needing to be covered are much further between in-country destinations....
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...
