Our Guides Were Phenomenal!

Our Guides Were Phenomenal!
After invited by her friends to join them on the Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek , Marian decided to go for it! Here she shares some of the highlights of her high Andean adventure while trekking to Machu Picchu! “The main highlights, besides Machu Picchu ,for me was the fact that the Inca ruins everywhere! Cusco was incredible and our guides were phenomenal! We couldn't have had better service and attention. We were greeted in Cusco in the middle of a transportation strike and your staff took excellent care to see that we made it to our hotels. They did an excellent job. Eddie Pisaro, our guide, and his assistant, Claudio were absolutely fantastic. Every meal at the mountain lodges stood out! The accommodations were AMAZING, I wish I lived there! My favorites were: the JW Marriott in Cusco, all of the mountain lodges and Machu Picchu Pueblo in Aguas Calientes!!”...

A Wonderful Experience in Peru

A Wonderful Experience in Peru
Guest review from two alumni travelers who, with a group of their friends, just completed our Manu Wildlife Safari Overland Adventure: Andes and Amazon in Peru! “We had a wonderful experience in Peru . Our guides (Ruben & William) were fabulously friendly, had great senses of humor, and had great stores of knowledge about Inca and cultural history, flora and fauna. William's ability to imitate bird calls or reproduce them using his Iphone to lure them, then point ing them out to us with his laser was amazing in allowing us to view them. A fond memory was catching Piranha with William in an Oxbow lake. Ruben told tales of bullfights featuring condors and bulls and his own experience with an Alto Misayoc seeking treatment for his friend 6 years ago. A favorite memory is listening to a choir of Quechuans in traditional dress, singing in the Cusco Cathedral, a very haunting and heart-piercing...

A Very Unique Wildlife Experience

A Very Unique Wildlife Experience
Two of our alumni travelers just returned from a customized Manu Wildlife Safari adventure in Peru and share their thoughts on several aspects of the trip below: "FAVORITE EXPERIENCES: The one day KM 104 hike up to Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate was the perfect way to enter the site for the first time. Hardly any one else on the trail, plenty of interesting info from our guide as we hiked. Great experience as one finally gets to the top and suddenly looks down on Machu Picchu. The macaw clay lick was also exceptional...a very unique wildlife experience. ON GUIDES: Both our guides William in Manu and Reuben in the Sacred Valley were excellent...Reuben in particular. I really enjoyed the fact that they shared information about their own lives and experiences with us. Both shared their experiences with the Shining Path, for instance. Lots of jokes and laughter ON ACCOMMODATIONS:...

The Best Trip So Far!

The Best Trip So Far!
"We have used Wildland for two of our previous trips- each being a very pleasant experience, but this custom Peru trip was the best so far! Every place on this trip has been amazing. Really. With wonderful guides who really care about our having a great time definitely made a difference. At the Cruz del Condor, we weren't having much luck with condor sightings and although we told our guide Betty that it was not a big deal, she was determined to get us at least one sighting. When we did end up seeing the condors- which was indeed spectacular- it was an even greater experience because our guide was so happy that we got a chance to see it. Her enthusiasm was very influential to our experience. Our 2 main guides (Betty and Carlos) were superb! They were very passionate about their country and were very intuitive when it came...

Breathtaking and Idyllic- The Machu Picchu Lodges Trek was Amazing!

Breathtaking and Idyllic- The Machu Picchu Lodges Trek was Amazing!
Kim and a group of 11 friends just returned from their  adventures in Peru  and had a fabulous time on our Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek . Here are some of her favorite memories: “ The Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek along the Salkantay Trail was amazing! Loved the diversity of the terrain along the way. The food and accommodations were outstanding. Liked the privacy and relative luxury of the lodges. The guides, staff, cook, etc. were all so professional and attentive to our every need. Wilfredo was a wonderful tour guide--so knowledgeable, attentive and focused on making the most of the trip for all of us. Danny was a lot of fun. Something that really stood out was the lunch in the tent (in the rain) after reaching the top of the Salkantay Trail--what a fun and much appreciated surprise. Loved Santos and Victor who did the traditional blessing at...
