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 pointing 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 experience.
The Inka Express Trail was a definite highlight for the 4 of us that trekked it, especially mingling with the llamas at the ruins halfway through the trek and exiting the Sun Gate to look down upon Machu Picchu.”
